Not surprised,COD4 is the better game overall
but I'm not going into a rant about it
wait until N4G comes out of the beta, then read my COD4 UR
No,speak up now,*waits*well?
COD4 has better graphics,gameplay,online and the campaing is WAY better than Halo 3's campaing,I feel sorry for everyone who is still playing Halo 3 over COD4,I really do
I give it a week...maybe 2 before ppl get bored of COD4
I also find it odd that you have such an interest in what 360 games are played over LIVE?
i agree with Kermit, and so do XBL members apparently.
i'm not a fan of Halo. i give it respect, but CoD4 owns right now. hands down. i mean sure you can go frag some master chief look-alikes, but in CoD4 you rank up and unlock stuff. it's like a drug, you can't get enough.
i saw this coming. i knew it'd overtake Halo 3 eventually.
COD4 : Halo3 :: Checkers : Chess
Cod4 is really fun. Halo is really fun. COD4 online is, although similar in theory, completely different than halo. The reason COD4 is very popular is because it is easier to pick up and play a few games. A good team, although helpful, is not necessary to win most gametypes. In halo, playing competitively requires a good team to compete and I am not talking p ussy MLG(wah battle wiffle wah).
And yes, those aliens are unrealistic looking in halo.
yea finally! maybe people will stop caring about halo all together and forget about i hope gears passes it next
I'm a halo nut. Just look at my gamertag. But COD4 is better.
Agreed, I own both games and cod4 is better than halo in almost every possible way. The weapons are better, the graphics are better, the gameplay is better and the character customization take it to a whole other level. The cod4 single player is also way better too.
i played halo 3 thinking it was the best thing ever at least 2 weeks after call of duty 4 came out. call of duty's single player is intense and completely immersive from start to finish, it completely smashes halo 3's with quality over quantity. then the multiplayer.. while not as "deep" as halo 3.. due to the weapons, being all realistic.. you can't expect a big difference between weapons. however, call of duty 4 is the most rewarding online experience i've ever had. halo 3 "ouu i got armor" thats about it. ranks dont mean anything in halo 3, or call of duty 4, they just show who played more. making call of duty's UAV, airstrikes, and helicopter support feel infinitely more rewarding than any other shooter.
Halo 3 sold more.
COD4 is played more.
As far as some saying it won't last I think it's the exact opposite. I think more and more people are leaving Halo 3 and going to COD4. I see tons of players with barely any rank on COD4 every time I play it.
It deserves it ! Infinity Ward has my respect.
ya has far has gameplay and graphics COD4 wins hands down tho h3 is fun too. Nice to see so many live users making the move.
Call of Duty 4 is the better game. Better graphics, better single player mode, more polished gameplay, better level up system. Man Call of Duty 4 is better in everyway possible.
I can't jump into a tank in COD4. I can't jump into an aerial vehicle then strafe players on the ground and dogfight other players in the air. I can't pick up the flag carrier on a 4-wheeler. And I can't jump in a turret mounted ATV with 2 of my friends. COD4 is a great game, no doubt. But it isn't better than Halo 3 in every way possible.

funny thing is I think most of us would agree with what your saying if you weren't such a jackass... still 14 disagrees so far speaks volumes about how tired people are of your brand of pro 360 anti sony BS.
lol geniuass's pm's are even more eloquent than his posts

lol hugs n kisses to you too (but some flowers now and then would be nice)
Lol, yeah I've accrued quiet a fanbase with the sony nazi's on this site. What's funny is I don't go into news exclusive to the ps3. I got my fanbase from sony fanboys trolling 360 news. Just take you for example.
Genuine...regardless of where you think you got your 'fanbase', its generally from making idiotic statements...not because sony nazi's trolled 360 news...
and PS3 people posting in here are hardly trolling...its a big CoD 4 headline on the front page...a multiplatform game is being played more than the biggest exclusive the 360 ever had and ever will get...that is significant to everyone...
I am wondering where this ranks on the PSN also...Warhawk saw a huge increase with the expansion pack...while CoD 4 has the largest number in the leaderboards (so more people have played it I guess), but that doesn't show active users...Warhawk still has tons of servers going constantly...so who knows...
Well all my 360 owning friends havent played Halo since CoD4's release and i imagine its the case for many others.
COD4>>>>>>H alo3, all day, everyday!
Not the case with me, some of my friends have played COD 4 but they are on Halo 3 like 90% of the time.
i don't even own Halo 3. probably never will.
You should check it out if you never play it you are missing out on something special. Pick it up used or rent it :) BTW COD4>HALO3
Halo 3 is to hard for alot of people. It's definitely for the hardcore FPS. Not for everyone. COD4 is a fantastic game but way to easy to rack up the kills. Especially with a few perks on. Plus their is to much camping in COD4.
Halo 3 is all about skill and teamwork. COD4 is more about luck.
I'm talking multiplayer. Getting a high rank in Halo 3 is extremely hard. Getting a high rank is COD4 is not. And I'm not going to take you seriously since you mentioned Resistance...that game is a noobish fragfest.
And Mighty...you reply to almost all my comments but I put you on ignore some time in November. So please stop idiot!
Skill and teamwork?
Is this guy serious?
Halo 3 hard? Are you serious about that too?
Dude, I can name about 40 other shooters that are harder than Halo. RFOM, HL2, Crysis, Bioshock, Farcry, Painkiller, Prey, and a bunch of others...
Halo 3 was not hard AT ALL!
But hey you know the saying goes...
People who suck at Halo, Play COD4!
please explain how you know who has/hasnt played halo?
oh yeah, i forgot, because i own a PS3 that means i NEVER EVER play on the 360 right? even though theres 2 in my house!
COD4 players are more mature and understand about teamwork, resulting in some great MP battles.
Less than 3% of Halo3 plyers have completed the game 100% If it was easy that % would be higher.
5.1 lol i can pwn computers!!!
5.2 90% correct
5.3 I don't think i want you on halo.
5.4 HALO = TEAMWORK COD4 = 1v1^8 (race to get the kills)
so jumping around and using the rocket launcher is skilled?how about an auto lockon energy sword? hell theres more mellieng in that game than shooting.
i like COD4 more then halo3, but needed a break so i popped in halo the other day. and man, if 1 person on your team quits, and its a good 4v4 match, you're royally fvcked. or, if your team splits up, doesnt work together, you are also fvcked. in COD4, you can be more of a one-man army if you're a balla. but its pretty true; more halo games are won with good teamwork then COD4
right.. halo 3 does not require skill. Counter Strike, TF2, Battlefield 2142, Rainbow Six, .... THOSE require skill. Anyone who was a fan of first person shooters before gaylo came out, or has put enough time into other shooters, knows that halo requires little skill and is a mediocre shooter.
You know what game takes skill? Silver Surfer for NES. You got to be hardcore to beat that sh!t
the halo series has always been a slow paced, yet still unrealistic, shooter...I have always felt shooters like that require more luck than skill...You can have the upper hand and get a good jump on someone, yet they can still rattle off shots or have a lucky grenade toss to take you out first...
the only thing I notice is that CoD 4 has a far greater distribution of players...meaning...you will run into guys that regularly get 25 kills and 5 deaths in a free for all...and right there with them are people right around 5 kills and 25 deaths...seeing, and correctly aiming, is absolutely everything in CoD 4...you get the jump on a guy you will always take him out first...once you get good at getting that first shot zero'd in, all of a sudden you feel unstoppable...you can run up 15 kill streaks regularly with no problem...
and you can stay consistant at that...but then you come across a guy that is only slightly quicker than you...and all of a sudden you get killed every single time...its not a game where you trade kills a lot...if you are faster than the people in that room, you get first place...if you don't, you usually are much lower in the ranks than what you "feel" is good...
I don't think that makes it an easy game...just the opposite in fact...Christmas day was hilarious with guys popping it in for the first time...
IMO, COD4 and Halo 3 are two entirely different gameplay experiences, and can't really be compared outside of the fact they are both FPS. Both serve the style that a player is looking for above an average FPS. I enjoy the realism of COD4, but I also enjoy the vehicle combat and fictional side of Halo 3. I guess it really just boils down to what I'm in the mood to play.
edit- Also it's easy to spot a Halo player on COD4, they are the people who start jumping around like a scared rabbit when they are being shot at. It looks hilarious btw ; )
Very true genuine.Bubbles for you.They are both very different games.
Yeah COD4 is a great game but it follows the same tired formula of wartorn streets. Resistance, Killzone, Warhawk, COD2,3, Metal of Honor, and tons more use the same level design. Atleast Halo gives you something different using creative sci fi maps.
Unlike Quake, Unreal tournament, Doom...
And Doom, Quake, UT etc. never have done that
EDIT: LOL, thats what happens when you don't refresh the page for a half hour
lol@ scared rabbit observation
I also agree that they are different types of fps's just like ut3 is different to both you mentioned although ut3 is more similar to halo than cod4 is
Unreal, Quake, Prey, Doom those are different from Halo. That is a whole different FPS that falls in the catogory of dark hallways, close combat firefights. Way different than Halo.
I understand that Halo is a good game, I enjoyed the 1st one my PC, but stop acting as if Halo is secound comming of Christ!
It's like when I faced "Halofan1313" earlier in a round of UTIII. he got it handed to him by the other PC gamers...
What self-respecting PC gamer chooses that name?
Then one has to ask why did you choose Leon Kennedy as your screen name. Let me guess, your a Resident Evil fan?
COD4 yet with 600p resolution vs 640p resolution, still has extremely better graphics than Halo.
Problem for COD4 multiplayer is: Too easy and fast to get rewards. Should take MUCH longer. It's like i just got a chopper ability after playing COD4 for the first time and in 2 matches :( Wat i'm hoping for is: Infinity award to release a patch to downgrade EVERYBODY and make it longer for people to get awards. I dont care if i get downgraded, i hope others aren't angry though
you get a chopper with 7 kills in a row, has nothing to do with rank.
the helicopter perk!!
OMG! I got the UAV perk the first time I played.
wow, both great games IMO
Not surprising. Although you can't really compare the 2 games, they're completely different, I really think they f*cked up the MP in Halo 3. I get more enjoyment playing Halo 1 on the PC than Halo 3 on the 360. The whole matchmaking thing, what a pain in the arse, random games and maps that everyone keeps vetoing. I wish they'd just put in a custom search like you can do on the PC. And I'm kinda getting sick of COD4 too now. Looking forward to GTA MP, but in the meantime, it's still Gears of War FTW!!!
umm it doesnt matter how diffrent the two fps are one is still pulling people from the other
cod 4 = 60fps....nuff said
COD4 anybody can get a level 55 prestige 10. All you had to do is play alot. Halo 3 is very hard to get a level 50. Unlike COD4, you can lose your ranking when you lose. That's what I like. That's real competitive action. COD4 is a fun game but it's for the noobs.
You can play COD4 alot, and get the highest rank, and lose every match.
Your rank means nothing in COD4, I pwn generals all the time, Im only a captain.
but Halo, your rank actually reflects your skill.
I'm not going to rant about it, give this flavor of the holiday a few weeks & it will vanish.
HALO 3 has been at the top since September 25, give it time & COD 4 will wear off & things will get back to normal.
Also, a game that doesn't have co-op shouldn't be up there at all. Also a game that I beat in 5 hours in 1 sitting is ridiculous.
Well then why don't you turn the difficulty up to maximux setting If you are runing thru the game so easily and then tell me how quickly did you finished it? n00b
bungie messed it up as far as i am concerned and i am glad people have moved on.
Halo was the best ! not anymore.... its not about which has the best graphics, its about game play.
bungie turned halo into a melee fest ( with the most backwards system i can think of )...
halo CE still rules for me and if that was on live thats what i would be playing most, but it isn't, so i am left with cod4.
feel pretty much the same as you. ive lost respect for bungie as a dev., because how anyone can go backwards from halo 1(2001) to now, AND go backwards on a new console! is beyond me. once I had learned the halo 2 engine was powering halo 3, that was it. the halo vein popped in my head. halo 3 is fun, but it could, and should have been much more.
I think a lot of the true Halo enthusiast are singing. We used to play Halo 2 everyday! Everyday!! Without fail. We used to play Halo on Xboxconnect. We all were really looking forward to Halo 3 on a new and more powerful system but were all terribly disappointed. We played for a couple of months and it got old real quick.
I started playing Warhawk and they eventually got PS3's and now we all play COD4. COD4 is not perfect but it's different and does require good teamwork.
In Halo, you know you have a shield and with the right weaponry you can easily take on two or more guys. You had better not think about taking on two guys in COD4.
I remember lots of 4 on 4 matches and yelling out that I killed their whole team. I've never had that luxury on COD4 without the use of an airstrike or helicopter. You run out of ammo fast if you're waste your shots.
Halo 3 is not a crap game and good for people who didn't obsess over Halo 2 but for those that did, it's just not a big enough step forward. Halo to Halo 2 was huge. Halo 2 to Halo 3 was a baby step.
Is good to see cod4 detrhoning halo 3. Still I prefer halo 3 multiplayer.
COD 4 feels like a fresh breeze of air, while Halo feels like the usual stuff.
i just didn't know it was going to take few months.
FirstknighT and Blackfrican have argued correctly: Halo 3 is both more difficult and more sophisticated, in terms of game play, than COD4.
The high level of skill required to rank up on Halo 3 is extremely demanding. There really is no proper comparison: COD4 is much, much easier and far less demanding. COD4 is a great game but Halo 3 outshines it when it comes to challenge and diversity.
Many of the COD4 players on my Friends List have returned to Halo 3. Halo 3's multiplayer challenge is hard to resist.
Single Player? I'll say this: if anyone doubts Halo 3's single player challenge, try playing on Legendary with the toughest SKULLS turned on. Recruit some friends and play it Co-op style. You will see who has skills and who does not--in no uncertain terms. Luck? Forget about it!
but COD it's a bit easy when it comes to ranking up and if you play it a lot you'll probably get to the rank you want.
Nevertheless COD online gaming it's way fun, but in my opinion Warhawk is even funner.
Warhawk has much more content and fun factor than any online game i've play in my life and this game is way underrated. Also Warhawk's rank is very demanding and much more difficult to increase than COD.
Now I say if you're a guy that needs that difficult edge in the rank aspect, then COD is not the game.
I miss the good old Counter Strike days when playing online and keeping a good rank was a beautiful experience. Not much time in my hands now to play CS :(
For me Halo was a REAL let down, poor graphics, (not true hd, in fatc 640p) no anti aliasing, nothing like the false cg we have all seen, over hyped, old game play, boring game play, nothing new, kiddy aliens, poor sound, weak weapons, naff and crappy Ai. multiplayer idiots, jumping like bunnies, slow, no intensity, 30 bullets at point blank to put somebody down, running round in circle trying hit each other, god do i need to go?
The only bad think about cod4 is...... cod5 is going back to world war 2 nooooooooooo!!!!!!
Dumb AI? IF you have ACTUALLY PLAYED Halo 3 you certainly HAVE NOT played on LEGENDARY! Legendary: smart, skilled AI enemies who will dodge your best shots and hunt you like a DOG!
Yeah, you've never played the game at all.
Call of Duty 4 is a fun game online, so I'm not to supprised here. I hope they even out the latency and balance ot some of the perks. Nothing is worse than unloadng a full clip into a player with "stoping power perk" when their back turned (easy shot), only for them to shake it off turn around and shoot you once and you die. Anyone who has played this game and who above rank 30 knows this and you can hear them b!thing in their mics, it's become commen place.
cant say thats ever happened to me (im 3rd lvl prestige, rank 55) i hear people b1tching all the time, but usually its cause they suck :)
i play alot of hardcore, dont ever use stopping power in that, and people go down in 3 shots at the most. i know in non-hardcore modes, if someone is using juggernaut they can be a pain in the ass to kill
Lag is a real issue in COD4. I wouldn't have the greatest connection here or anything and do suffer lag, but it's not as noticeable as much in any other game than COD4. Sometimes the Killcam shows something completely different as to what actually happened on my screen. In game, I could be running across the map, notice someone shooting me and unload half an ammo clip in their direction before I die. Then on the killcam, it could show that I'd actually died before one bullet left the barrel of my gun!!! I wish they could sort that out, it's infuriating. I'd still put it above Halo 3 though, they ruined the MP with all that matchmaking nonsense. But, Gears is still top of my MP games on the 360.
