WTF this is a PC game, how the hell can they close it down? Can't there still be dedicated servers or client side hosting? What a crock of shit.

Um, PC servers are no different than console servers.

Servers for PC games can be very different from Console servers.

Crap!! I was gonna buy this game, but now I'm not sure if I will. It's probably gonna be hard to find people that want to boost.

I don't think it's closing. Look at the defintion of mainstream support (#3). It's pretty much just warranties, updates, and help. Nothing about servers.

Is there anything specifically saying it's closing? According to the website, Windows XP no longer has support, yet you can obviously still get online using Windows XP.

Windows XP doesn't provide access to the internet, that's done by a third party (or IE) program.

Yes but nothing seems to actually indicate the servers shutting down. Just no more warranties, specialized tech support, those sort of things.

This isn't real. I don't believe it. Like the other guys said, they have servers for halo CE for over 9 years now. Also there will always be player servers, etc. And you can boost achievements still.

Support doesn't mean Servers, it means patches and such.
