Live play figures for the week starting July 21 show Halo 3, yet again, lording over CoD4.
are these going to be posted weekly?
well they are the weekly rankings...
the halo crowd and the cod crowd are a lot different. and they have both been going back and forth for a while now. but, with the upcoming release of Gears 2, a lot of people are starting to play gears 1 again in preparation. and it's been my experience that gears of war players generally don't like halo but do like cod. so cod is losing some of its audience back to gears. I'm just taking a stab at it, i could be wrong. just one guy's perspective
Great news for Halo Halo and Microsoft. I just hope they won't be releasing a statement telling us about how many achievements have been unlocked and the usual Msoft bla bla bla
I like the fact that they think we care
Why it is that everyone thinks Halo is so great is beyond me.
That everytime an article that mention halo appears someone always posts that they are confused by the fact that halo is a good game. Why is god of war a good game, why is half-life? Why did you even bother posting Json?
i told people since cod comes out every year theres no way they can continue to be on top compared to the next first person halo which prob wont come out for two years.
well reall cod fans know the real cod doesn;t come out every year infinity ward cod titles usually have several years between the treyarch versions come out in between and theya re usually not as good the new treyarch game (world at war) is more of a sequel to call of duty 3 than 4 just copying the things thjat amde 4 fun (perks, ranks)
while i like COD4 more, i am starting to find it increasingly more frustrating. The game just seems to be getting laggier ( it got bad when the update came out and has just got worse ) at least for me anyway. hence i am playing it less and less now and a lot of my friends are finding doing the same. we love the game, but its getting pointless playing it cos of lag. they have all started playing gears again.
my issue with cod4 lately is also frustration, but its not lag as much as it seems every game i get into is ended early by the host people seem to be quitting more and more lately if they are losing and its gotten very annoying
outlaw... Very ture, that is another thing as well. Now i have to be honest, i never use to quit games, but i have become one of those people who do... again because of lag. when i get into a game, i am using the M16 with stopping power, i see a guy running with his back facing me, i shoot him in the back 3 - 4 rounds to the point that i have to reload... something is wrong ! while i use to stay in the game, i have now got so fed up i just can't. i mean whats the point ? so i just quite. no i don't mean this in a bad way, but i get this mostly at night when all the US guys are on.
IT doesnt' disconnect when host exits, just goes to lobby and connects again. Its frustrating when you've got the highest score or in top 3.
great game, deserves number 1 played position. just a shame my wireless network adapter is broken and i won't get a replacement for 1-2 weeks :(
Are figures like this ever pulished for PS3? Or am i just missing them?
these always come from major nelsons site
I thought it would be more popular...guess its pretty niche. Or maybe I'm just uber-hardcore! HAHAHAHAHAHAHahaha...hahaha.. .haha...ha....uhh...sorry...
i have ut3 but it is way too fast for me...i used to play on PC way back when but i guess im not used to the pace anymore it just wasnt fun for me getting completely destroyed in every online match so i stopped playing, and i know several others who did the same i guess it is a small number of dedicated people that suit that game, definitely not a mass market game
I prefer COD 4to Halo any day of the week but COD 4 doesn't have much to offer once you've ranked up as high as you can go. Only 2 of the new maps are any good, and with so few coming out, they've wasted too much time between updates...What's next? a few new playlists? Why not create a new game mode, more maps and such? I only play COD 4 when my friends are on since I can't stand playing with people I don't know, and I imagine it's gotten that way for a lot of people. Unfortunately there are some annoying people on Live who ruin the experience for everyone else. Not to mention getting stuck with a TERRIBLE team that stays in the spawn area instead of pushing out so you keep spawning by them.
Call Of Duty would keep the top spot if it had guest sign in on XBOX Live
sorry your wrong because it goes by unique users and the fact that when you dont look at unique users halo has tons of more players online
The lists are done per gamertag. If they did include guest useres halo 3 never would've lost top spot.
well i play halo becuz my xbox keeps saying unreadible disc when i load up the maps ambush and district in cod4 and i have been playing a lil gears here and there to get ready
