Im guessing that it is due to high impact heavy traffic

For millions around the gaming world. The launch of a main Halo title is looked at as a national gaming holiday. I have personally witnessed many call in sick from work, skip school, and literally put priority aside for the day one Halo experience. Things look to be no different in this case.

Rated E For Everyone

even with the issues im still haveing a blast playing.

According to ten people you despise Halo 4 >:(

Still I have only played 7 matches and haven't experienced any problems so I must be lucky!

Besides why not play SP if you having issues? Seriously this game has a really good SP with a brilliant ending too :)

You would think that 343/MS would of prepared for high volume.

Zha1tan1750d ago

trying to gauge the volume of players is an impossible task because you cant predict just how popular the game is going to be hence there being a lack of servers to help with the huge traffic numbers so they are going to add as they go so they do not waste money on resources.

Every game developer does it these days to save costs in maintaining and running online servers.

You cant really...same thing happened to halo reach and 3 and the reach beta on launch day

dude, you do realize that this is HALO, right? you're talking rubbish! the only thing bigger than Halo is CoD and on 360, Halo might be the bigger one plus, the pre-order numbers were huge and you're telling us they can't predict how it will be popular? c'mon!

if your paying for online there should be no issues

It's funny that high traffic can have such an effect on the XBL servers, whatever happened to you get what you pay for? Seeing how xbl gamers pay a premium for mp features you get free on ps3 and pc, you'd expect the servers to be good enough to handle the traffic.

That was pretty funny for some reason.
:P

Everything is fine and there are no problems, $400 Million USD budget, 85 team-members spent 18 months working on Halo 4's multiplayer, there's nothing to worry about

wwm0nkey1750d ago

No, Microsoft is having server issues, its effecting a lot of things but mostly Halo 4 MP (mostly joining friends)

Knight_Crawler1750d ago

@JOse - they are having server issues due to millions of player logging in at once.

Ben_Grimm1750d ago

But of course, seriously...every single high profile multi player games has these "server issues".

You would think that these companies would take from past experiences and prep accordingly.

JohnApocalypse1750d ago

I'm having a problem where the game sets me to a default player and so I can't use any weapons or armour pieces I've unlocked or got from pre-ordering
