No Halo 4 at MLG This Year

Hardcore Gamer: Competitive Halo players that were hoping to play Halo 4 for the first time at MLG are out of luck, as league co-founder and CEO Sundance DiGiovanni is reporting the company has signed its console shooter deal for 2013 and Halo isn’t in it. (Halo 4, MLG, Xbox 360)

Not surprising. Halo is not what it once was. Halo 4 is the lowest scoring and worst selling Halo game. It debuted at #2 on XBL activity charts but has already fallen to #4 and falling further fast. The word on the street among gamers is that it's the worst Halo of all which I agree, I gamefly'd it and sent it back the next day. I hate the Prometheans worse than I hated the Flood. The MLG pros just don't think it's good enough to play in the tournament. MS is going to need a lot more than more Halo to get them out of last place in the console war.

Yo know that fact that MS sold the tournament contract to virging gameing is really the only if not biggest reason why they cant If they didnt want to put it on then they wouldnt of gone through to make and rush out playlists go through all these meetings and really MLG players didnt start dropping until sundance announced the status and that Halo may not be on, and really the main reason why most of said MLG players which from some reason are viewed as more highly and worthy of all things great than the people creating that game no matter if its 343 or bungie are mostly leaveing because of money. It wouldnt really change the outcome much even if it was in the number 1 spot. its as simple as this MS was stupid and sold a contract giving virgin gameing control over tournaments for Halo 4 and even though 343 did express intrest in getting something working virgin gameing wasent having it and most likeley MLG was probably offered a deal but at the cost of say plublicty or money or something. I wish the best to the MLG players but really when it comes to the fans they need to research this stuff more and realize no matter how the game could have been it all depended on MS's decision of selling the rights to virgin gameing.

I am just boggled by the amount of free time you have to shower words and words of hate on nearly every Halo article that gets submitted here.

Btw, Virgin Gaming's contract with MS is the major hindrance to MLG's support of Halo 4.
And if you actually took the time to read what the MLG pros think of Halo 4, you would have known that the large majority of them agree that Halo 4 has the tightest game mechanics out of all the Halo game in the series.

And I don't understand how you can say that Halo 4 is the "worst selling Halo game." If you actually took the time to study some of the sales charts from all the Halo games, you would have realized that Halo 4 is actually the fastest-selling Halo title to date. I don't know where you are pulling your numbers from, buddy...

If you've got that much time to write numerous walls of words, you should take a little time to brush up on actual facts before making such large assumptions and making a fool of yourself.

Your an idiot. Halo 4 is the quickest sellin halo and it's only been out for a few months and its player count often matches that of the latest cod.

Although your piece rather comedic. It's an Amazing thing the Internet. Allowing dumb people to voice their opinion and say they are right with out ever having to bring any facts at all.

20$ says you wouldn't be caught dead saying the stuf you do on the net IRL.

you and supersonic need to find some hobbies haha
Trolling or not the shit you guys spew out is retarded and frankly I would like to believe you guys have something better to do with your time.
TekoIie  +   701d ago
Well he has been caught red handed submitting a negative Halo article. Which pretty much answers the question as to whether or not he has anything better to do :3

Besides Sony fanboys are loving Metacritic ever since Halo 4 began getting troll reviews. Just before release someone tried to submit the Halo 4 metacritic page as an article.

haha Wow, sounds more like an obsession.

Maybe he's a closeted Halo fan lmao! The hate is just a cover up.
StreetsofRage  +   701d ago
LOL! Strongman's insecurity is showing. You can really feel his jealousy with all his posts. Quite funny. Just mark him for trolling and move on.

Anyway, you can say goodbye to MLG and welcome in a whole new era of competition gaming with Virgin Gaming. Halo is the main draw in MLG afterall.

"I gamefly'd it and sent it back the next day"

Good, call of duty is more popular then halo anyways
Allsystemgamer  +   701d ago | Well said
If popularity meant good I guess you love Justin bieber and the twilight movies.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

ZING! You certainly deserve a bubble for that!
Shadonic  +   701d ago
Its more popular now. After Halo stopped beating its ass in reach and even then bungie wasent really trying with thatand still put up a fight. Cod has to come out every year to keep its spot with rehash after rehash of the same thing Halo kept its spot even with cod still there and it was releasing every 2-3 years its quality not quantity and popularit dosent mean anything look at justin beiber.

The irony is apparently BLOPS2 is. ...

Yeah that's the saddest part of it all man...COD has such an un-competitive low skill cap MP when compared to Halo or any other game on the MLG circuit. COD mp can be fun but my god is it easy to be good at.
supersonicjerry  +   701d ago
If its easy to be good at go play in some GB tournaments or 360icons tournaments. We have seen CoD pro Players go play halo and become a pro at it yet to see halo pros come top8 in cod lan events with actually pros there.
Mainsqueeze  +   701d ago
Name 1 CoD pro that went pro in Halo. Or came anywhere near the top 8 or hell even top 32. Its never happened...ever. I honestly don't see how you could say CoD is any where near as competitive or has as high of a skill cap as Halo when in CoD u can kill some one in less than half a second with any weapon in the game. Any 12 year old kid could go positive in a CoD game by camping...Either way its going to be a loss for MLG to have CoD since its main stage will have like what 15-20 ppl max watching, o well i guess people will need some place to sit down and rest between watching LoL and SC2. Casual CoD is fun and addictive but competitively its a joke.

I didn't like Halo 4's multiplayer imo. I hope they will still keep Reach in rotation though.
