Time may be running out.

I'm not saying this is true. Just speculation, but it doesn't sound unreasonable. With all the rumors of a new Xbox being right around the corner, maybe even this year, we've got to realize that Halo 3 may not be around for much longer. Like Halo 2 and the original Xbox games, they were eventually cut off because the 360 had been out for some time. Basically, now is the same situation, but the 360 will be the old console. If a new Xbox console comes out THIS year, that means we will have no idea when all of the 360 servers for the older games are shut down in favor of the new console games, and we'll have less time to find out. Not saying anything is being speculated or planned, just bringing this into the light. I only realized this yesterday. So what am I saying? Play Halo 3 while you can, because the next time you get yourself to play it, may be too late.

It will be a while before 360 games get shut down purely because of a new console that may not even release this year.

Nothing is worse than the first release item. On topic, OP, I doubt they are going to be shutting down Halo 3 soon. I'd give it [u]at least[/u] another year.

  • Halo 2 lost it's Live capabilities after only six years. If Halo 3 lost it's Live capabilities in the same time span, we'd have only this year to play it. *tears* She was taken from us too soon. [Edited on 01.07.2013 8:13 PM PST]
