I don't get it. If you're referring to having to be a gold member I don't see why you would event want this if you didn't have Gold.
SJPFTW  +   638d ago
you can access the store without GOLD and get any game add-ons you want. been that way since the beginning

I don't think they have a choice if they are smart.

Next gen is approaching and it won't just be BF & COD they are competing against.

Halo 5 needs to be amazing or the series will slowly die....

My interest in Halo took a dive this year and I never bothered to grab 4 even though I had it pre-ordered prior to release.

It looks good for this gen, but always feels like I'm playing a lesser version of halo 2.

I actually liked halo 4 better then reach & odst. Halo 4 just felt more of a complete package. U should atleast try it out. U might like this one.

NO hes right it needs to be way better its not the king it was from 1-3 it has to climb back up to the top again.

I like the campaign ALOT more than reach, but halo 4's multiplayer is broken as all hell and not true to the halo formula (no load-outs, focus on map control.)
clintagious650  +   638d ago
See I cant really say much bout the multiplayer since i havent renewed my xbl account but i loved the campaign & that is what i was talking about when i said whole package. Campaighn didnt feel gimped at all and was great for a title not created by bungie.
Shadonic  +   638d ago
Really 343 basically improved on everything from reach MM missing some things like the death X and small stuff and then added in a bunch of unneeded things to grab in more players who know nothing about Halo. If the game didnt have sprint and Loadouts and Personal Ordinance were jsut for delivaring AA's i can guarantee a lot of the issues people have with a lot of the issues MM wise. The Halo feel is there its just heavily blocked out by all these unneeded things.

Halo 4 already sold 8 million copies, the series is as popular as ever, it's not in decline, or slowly dying

As a hardcore halo fan, I'm still upset. The largest island is only as big as Ragnarok. :(

Patients my young patawan - you can only squeeze so much from a 7 year old console without having to limit some stuff.

Halo 5 on the 720 should be a marvel since MS will give Halo 5 the biggest gaming budget in history to compliment the 720 new technology.

This is the kind of comments that should be on here more frequently. Bubbles to you two as well as the two below for having civil discourse.
biRdy  +   638d ago
thats just the big island itself, you can also forge quite a long way off the island.
ZigZagLagger  +   638d ago
true, but i like building natural looking maps rather than floating forerunner blocks over an ocean.
TXIDarkAvenger  +   638d ago
Holy shit finally! But all my friends stopped playing this game...Better late than never I guess.
aviator189  +   638d ago
Wow, 2 weeks early?
Awesome.
Jek_Porkins  +   638d ago
Nice, free map on Halo 4 and a free map on Gears Judgment in the same day. Things are looking up!
clintagious650  +   638d ago
Definitely a good sign. I hope this leads to xbl on the nextbox being free. That would definitely take alot of weight off my decision of grabbing a the nextbox early. Im hoping when they finally reveal the nextbox they can show atleast 2 promising new IP's & if xbl free ill have to grab one. Also I didnt disagree with u. I actually gave u a bubble.
