  • i'm probably a bit late but yep microsoft are being evil by taking something down that was extremely popular, if i had sold my xbox original then i would not have been able to play halo 3+ so it is unfair to those gamers, to me

  • Shutting servers down without me knowing + Not ever playing halo 2 matchmaking = The beast that will press the button to bring all servers for the xbox original online!!!!11!!!1!!!!! MICROSOFT!!!!! WHYYYY??!?!?!?!? I found out today, 2 days before I was gonna get halo 2 and play my butt off. Some people like Halo 2. Some people even like halo 1. Since they shut the servers down, I will never live the experience people are talking about. It makes me sad that all these people are sitting at their computers screaming. BRING THE SERVERS ONLINE!!!!! Dx Don't be an ass microsoft!!! Keep your gamers happy. :(

  • It makes me sad. I dont own a Xbox 360, nor can I really afford one. I will probably never play with some of my friends online again. I had so many awesome experiences with Halo 2. Some WTF moments. Some angry moments. Most of all, its just so much fun to play. The only reason I got Xbox live was to play Halo 2. Now its gone.

  • Ah -blam!-e! I don't think I can handle this! In all this excitement and confusion about the reach beta, me trying to find out what's really going on, the only thing really hits me is this, and ice cold pain in my stomach. [Break] I saw the video of all the good times you guys had with your friends in halo 2, all the secret places, and I really wish I could've had those moments. You see, when I first got halo 2 I didn't have live, so me and my friend really couldn't do all that, but when I got live my best friend didn't have his game any more, so we really couldn't play. No big deal, I could just wait until he gets it again, can I? No. Please bungie, I beg of you to make and online version of halo 2 and 1 for arcade. Just make it like the mythic disk that came with ODST except for arcade. And don't want new HD graphics or anything like that. We just want good, old halo. :.( Ah screw it! Put the campaign in there, for we all have those little moments in the campaign too! I shall always have those childhood halo memories in my heart, but we shall always burn our souls to relive them!

  • Your are exactly right Pro Kendog! Halo2 was AMAZING while it lasted, yet as gamers we must move on to better games.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] DaProgramma Well this is just a preview of what to expect. Eventually you won't be able to play halo 3 anymore. But it is really a preview of the much bigger picture. That is you won't be able to play any old games any more at some point. In 10 years (if that long) your halo 3 disc might still work, your 360 too (doubtful), but what about your downloaded maps? title updates? I don't doubt we will see a Halo2 port to xbox live arcade, but is that really what we want? I see a vision and the vision is microsoft (or game companies really) trying to do what the music and movie publishers have done for so long, namely, getting consumers to buy the same content over and over and over again. There are actually already doing it now.[/quote] Absolutely agree with everything you said. How many years until Halo 3, ODST, and Reach are no longer playable online? Frankly after Reach I don't plan to buy any more Xbox products. I'm -blam!- done with Microsoft. Knowing that these amazing games will never be playable with friends after a few years makes me so angry.

  • Hold your ground, hold your ground! Sons of Bungie, of HALO, my brothers! I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. We knew this day would come, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of Matchmaking, but it is not this day. 2 months of woes and shattered energy shields, when the age of HALO 2 comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we play! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you play the game one last time, HALO 2!

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] GrimWeafer [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Grunt Chietain Why would they do this?[/quote] Microsoft's reasons fro this are black & white, They are pushing the community to move on with the Technology. 2010 will be a great push for the Xbox community with the new games and not to mention Project Natal. I understand how this is effect the public because sadly I have a friend who is still using the Original Xbox and was crushed by the fact that she will no long be able to game in Halo2 Online via Xbox.

  • Even though ms isnt saying its the friends list, "S1d3W1nd3r 24x7" from M$ on the gfwl forums said this: [quote] Dropping support for Xbox 1 is the only way to start adding new features to the LIVE service, things like the 100 friends limit are directly tied to Xbox 1 Support. [/quote] Translation: Major Nelson having over 9000 friends > halo 2. (this was in reply to [url=http://forums.gamesforwindows.com/t/11057.aspx]this[/url]) [quote]Hopefully they wont abandon it like xbox 1 or treat it like pc where "lets pretend to support it."[/quote]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] MetTag pick up h3 or ODST becuase they really are better games. [/quote] I can't help but notice that you only have 50 halo 2 games played. Halo 3 does not live up to Halo 2, and ODST just sucks. On my old account, I had 3,000+ games of Halo 2 played. You shouldn't be talking about something you've barely played.

  • Yeah, what's up with the DLC? I have the map pack disk and tried reinstalling the maps when it said something was corrupted; but it still wouldn't let me play online. If the service is supposed to be live through April 14th, then why can't I refresh my maps? Without the maps, we cannot play in the playlists. I want to play some Halo2 before they shut it all down; please do something to remedy this problem! -belcaw

  • Im all for re realeasing the halo 1 and halo 2 multiplayer as an arcade download. This would be good because the graphics could be uprezed. I wouldn't mind a 1600 points for a good multiplayer system. I think I speak for everybody when I say halo 2 multiplayer was such a part of me early on in xbox live that I really want to keep it in someway shape or form playable. Money is no object halo must stay.

  • IF they put it 360 then they wouldn't change the graphics. If they did anything they would take out glitches becuase the glitches are mistakes and they would want to remove the glitches. Just say good night to H2 and let die and honarable death. And guess what, you can still fun playing H3 and ODST!! Lots less buggy.
