im very patient, but this is getting ridiculous now.

I'm patient also and I usually understand that in todays gaming world a few bug fix/patches is expected over the first few days but let's call a spade a spade, 343 simply messed up. Yeah they did alot right for this collection but the matchmaking somehow wasn't properly tested.

I'm not really bothered by this bug, I'd say it's more of a minor cosmetic annoyance but considering all the other much more serious problems I and many others have experienced with the matchmaking its really ridiculous that 343 hasn't got their shiii together yet, really as a bigtime Halo fan I'm pretty disgusted that such a great remaster has stumbled out of the gate with online issues.

Given the importance of this franchise and knowing that millions of Halo fans were waiting to invest allot of time with it both offline AND of course online it really is ridiculous that it's taken them so long to fix things properly.

I really don't like seeing issues like this, especially with the frequency with which new generation games are having problems. I also wish the nonsense of comparing Sony's network to Microsoft's network would go away, they both have their moments of inefficiency. I game on both, and have run into problems on both on several occasions. I for one hope this doesn't continue into 2015, there are so many good looking titles coming, it would really be a buzzkill if next year's titles have the same crippling issues at launch and beyond.

just let it die already..

Actually, with just 2 weeks on the market TMCC has already outsold every PS4 exclusive except 2, those have been out for months:

BTW, the top exclusive is TitanFall

Edit, @ Zuggercat, so let me get this straight, games like NoMansky, H1Z1, Planetoid 2, StreetFighter 5, are all NOT exclusive?

ziggurcat1315d ago


1. Vgchartz is not a valid source.

2. Titanfall is not an exclusive.

giving them a pass. what they're trying to achieve has never been done on console. idk/idc about pc.

DonnieDarko1315d ago

Unplayable for me now. Legacy controls no longer work on multiplayer. I'm not anticipating a quick fix on this as I bet 95% of ppl use default controls.

Is fun when it works but I don't got the patient to keep waiting to play big team. idk the reason why they took out h4 and swat playlist when they still have not fix the rest of the playlist

xDHAV0K24x1315d ago

only removed it to make the others better. every day it has gotten better for me. the less playlists you would assume, the less traffic

"I just downloaded the latest update and now every time I leave matchmaking my UI background disappears and becomes solid black.

"I can still use the UI, though not sure if this is a sign anything else keeps erroring out or its ok to continue? Only way to restore the UI background is a hard reset of the application/game. Sigh."

Really... you're crying because a background? At least the game started to finally work correctly.

People disagreeing, I guess a background is that important...

zerocrossing1316d ago (Edited 1316d ago )

Yeah, it kinda is actually.

I know it might seem like small thing to complain about, but this is just the latest in a long list of issues plaguing Halo Master Chief Collection. A game should bloody well work properly when you've spent good money on it.

Sticking up for devs when they put out buggy games just helps in reinforcing a bad habit, and will only lead to more games getting pushed out the door before they're ready.

Mega241316d ago

Still, a simple bug like this can be easily reported, but does it really need an article with this click bait? Do you really need that post game background? It's not a game breaking bug, just a simple cosmetic bug.

Killz4Twinkies1316d ago

I mean i find it kinda annoying that when i actually get into a game that i have to reboot my system after finishing a match... you must have alot of time on your hands or must not get frustrated easily like myself

Mega241316d ago


Why reboot for something that it's not directly bothering your gameplay time?

If you have seen the bug, here:

It doesn't affect the game that much...

Halo won't save for me. Not only that but when I turn on my XB1 it doesn't let me instantly play Halo (I have to boot up the disk again). Does anyone else have this problem? The campaigns would be completely unplayable for me if it didn't give you the option of choosing a mission.

Kavorklestein1316d ago

Hmmm.... I could be way off, but needing to boot up the disk is because you don't have a digital copy, so it checks for the disk... maybe it is just random that it does that.. cuz i have HALO MCC on disk, but I never have to reboot the game. It's almost always in the drive. but to be honest, it Sounds more like it's related to your Autoplay settings and power settings. I have my xbox one set to never auto play, and I have it set to power saving mode. Purely because I don't need the system on at all times. I don't mind downloading updates separately, and I prefer to let my console actually "turn off" instead of instant on with kinect voice commands and such.

I want my console to last. I don't need to shorten it's lifespan in any way by using instant on settings. Even if the short lifespan is just a burned out power supply, I want to avoid any problems.

I don't know if this will help, but maybe you can look at your settings and try to figure out the best fit for you

GamingSinceThe80s1316d ago (Edited 1316d ago )

Mine won't save unless I go in and do it my self so no auto save.And since the last system update my launch edition Xboxone stays on after I shut it off sometimes with the light on and sometimes with just the fan going.And the fan in the power brick is half broken and make a loud buzzing sound half the time now like it is going to take lift off or explode.But hey it worked great up until just after Nov 22 my one year warranty was up and is not 100% broken ......yet,so M$ should be very proud and
