Ok,

I had a look through the forums and couldn't find anything specific about this, so forgive me if this is old news.

You can use the one serial on multiple PC's provided you install it with the same disc. What's the point you ask? It makes Violent Cartographer and Rainman a hell of a lot easier is the point! This way you can boost with 2 people or even just by yourself provided you have 3 computers accessible, and set up additional gamertags.

This has been tried and confirmed by myself and ezekiel 08. We have both installed our game on multiple PC's, they work with xbox live, you only need a silver account to play.

So for those of you having trouble finding enough people to boost with, and have the resources, this is your way out!! :woop:

Are the keys just used to say "this is the game" or are they special registration keys?

I've been meaning to pick up Halo 2 but none of the stores have it locally so far.

I bought the game yesterday and like you I had problems to find a single copy. in a entire mall i only found a copy of Halo 2 (was last one) and asked for it in 6-7 shops ;)

if you search on amazon or ebay you can easily purchase your copy :)

I've found a couple of copies at a local Futureshop for $40 CDN however I went out and spent $20 CDN on ebay for it. :P

Best Buy usually has copies for $20.

And hate to burst your bubble, but you can only use the serial number twice. (At least to activate Halo 2, I don't know how it works with other games)

While you can reactivate it on a computer it was previously installed on, you cannot do it on more than 2 different machines.
