Bungie are trying to take out Call of Duty 4 in the Xbox Live Activity charts and have given us details on their March Playlist changes, which include "double XP weekends". As well as this, they have updated some DLC.
Your old gen game is NOTHING compared to COD4 and Rainbow Six Vegas 2!
HA HA HA HA!
long live the king of duty 4
kind of a cheap way to get up, but whatever. COD did it too I guess...
I still play Halo 3 once in a while, its a great FPS to take break from the CoD 4, but thats just it. Its a game I play when I'm tired of CoD 4 which is king. Halo 3's days of being a premier console FPS is long gone.
Currently 40k players in COD4 and 75k in Halo 3. Don't understand where they get their numbers.
It's Because Halo 3 has more overall Players, CoD4 has more overall Unique User IDs, Halo 3 alot of people tend to play Split screen online which isn't possible on CoD4. Overall Halo 3 has had more overall players every week since launch, while CoD4 has only had more Unique User accounts.
I'm not sure if the promise of some extra points will allure gamers away from CoD4, it's just a far better game IMO.
After playing COD4 you really notice the drop in frame rate when you go back to Halo 3.
Also in Halo 3 you can shoot an enemy with a huge gun with very little effect. In COD4 the guns feel like they do real damage.
Halo 3 is still a good game, but COD4 is much better.
Huge gun in Halo? You mean the rocket launcher? Or the sniper? Both are 1-shot weapons, unless you're straight noob. What other "huge" guns are you talking about? The laser? (One shot). Hmmm, the missile turret? (One shot). Damn. What about the flame thrower?
Stupidest comment I've read so far today. You've obviously not played the game, or you're just talking out your @$$.
"Also in Halo 3 you can shoot an enemy with a huge gun with very little effect" ..WTF are you talking about? seriously?
huge guns in halo: rocket launcher,missile pod,chain gun (turret),fuel rod cannon and i guess the sniper and shotty might fall into that catagory...all of those guns listed kill you within a second if not the first shot..
Obviously you don't play halo or you would have never posted that..so stick to COD4 on you PS3 dood! and FYI anyone who is moderately good at any FPS knows that COD4 ( just another generic shooter) takes no skill at all
WHOOHOO!! More points to go towards a completely BULLSH!!T RANK. True-skill my @$$... If you suck but you're on a winning team and your skill rank goes up how is that skill? Absolutely no incentive to keep playing Halo3 aside from the theater aspect but who cares about that since nobodies gonna see your clip anyway and Bungie's clips are usually lame.
...but once R6V2 hits, nobody will care about Halo3 OR CoD4. :o
Rainbow six? are you serious? buggy piece of trash wont even come close.
have you even seen the gameplay videos?...
Vegas 2 has no hope of being even half of CoD 4...
I will most likely stick with call of duty 4 till something amazing comes out again that sets the standards once again as call of duty 4 did to FPS on console.
the only thing that would get me off COD4, would be Halo CE multiplayer over live.
that may, may... get my attention again.
For me to play halo 3, they would need to completely redesign the multiplayer and i know thats not going to happen.
it was a great game ( was ) but even then, it was not as good as the first.
still that is life, today you are at the top. You let it get to your head, you let it slip and tomorrow you find you are only second best..
Most people who left Halo were not in it for the XP, so this would not serve them well, but on the other hand, this could be viewed as a reward for the loyal who stuck around.
Double XP weekend? Come on they are now officially desperate. Not that Halo 3 is a bad game but I think Call of Duty 4 is just that much better and it's going to take more than some gimmicks and some DLC to bump it off the top. I'm actually trading in my Halo 3 when RSV2 comes out.
cant seem to find any game modes with more than 8 players max. is this all can have ??????
8 vs 8
i actually play 3 games online frequently in this order. COD4, Halo 3, Gears of war. I love how peoples say things like the king is dead long live cod4 etc,. cod4 is a much better game, etc,. Although I do agree COD4 is better. I wonder how many of you actually own halo 3, or even a 360 for that matter....????
Well, I can assure you the majority of the users here who praise Call of Duty 4 are not Xbox 360 owners and have never played Halo in their lifetime.
I'm done with Halo.
Halo is a much better game than COD4. I own both. COD4 gets no play time anymore. Hasn't since November. It's too easy. No skill involved.
Real gamers play Halo. Noobs play COD4 because they think the helicopter is cool and balanced.
The only reasons all these people on N4G (SONYDEFENSEFORCE.COM)think COD4 is so great is because A) they only own a PS3 and thats the only game they have worth playing. B)they get absolutely dominated in Halo3 so they quit for an easier game.. COD4 has graphics on Halo3 and thats IT!
LOL, i tried going back to play halo3, but felt like i was swimming. Its feels so slow compared to hardcore action of COD4. I"ve lent my copy of H3 to my nephew since last couple of months. Occasionaly go to bro's house and hav little bit of split screen mayhem but thats it.
its wierd...when i first started playing CoD 4 I was treating it like a filler game...I was never overly into any of the other Cod games (including those made by IW)...and really only purchased it because Vegas sucked and I liked the idea of the modern combat stuff...
so I went into it thinking I spent $60 and would have some fun with it until my most anticipated multiplayer game of the year, which was UT3, arrived...bought it the first day I could find it in stores (I think it was the first day it arrived at Gamestop)...
I played CoD 4 regularly...never found myself hopelessly addicted...some of my friends got it...started playing more with them...then started to get a little more into it...and then UT3 showed up...which was also great...and fast...and crazy...but over the course of a month, heading into the middle of January...I started to not be able to go a single day without putting an hour or so into CoD 4...it was like alcoholism...I didn't even know how addicted I really was...
I am playing it more now than I ever had before...I don't know...CoD 4 with a few new maps, the upcoming expansion for Warhawk, and UT3 have me set for the entire year it seems as far as multiplayer goes...I will get GTAIV and MGS4 obviously, but I have no desire to really get into any new multiplayer games currently...CoD 4 seems just about perfect...I can't even figure out what exactly is so addictive about it...just something about how rewarding the game can be when you are in a zone...when things are going well for you in that game, the other team knows it...and vice versa...you can walk out of a game with 38 kills and 5 deaths no problem...then start another and get wrecked...its great...
Halo3 will always be 1000 times better than COD4
I dunno. I prefer Gears...
But I'll say this:
Many more ppl on my friends list play Halo 3 alot more than COD4, I get alot more Halo 3 invites these days over COD4...
idk i own a ps3 and a 360, and while i dont like halo that much, im still good at it, its just COD4 feels better when you shoot,plus all my friends with the 360's play Call of duty, Halo is old news.
