VG247: For the second week running, Halo 3's been beaten into second place in the Live play charts for the week starting August 18. Bungie will be crying into its Weetabix.
Both will be stomped by GOW2
this was news back in january....
I say COD4 will still win.
I agree Gears 2 will stomp both in it's initial release period, i'll even be playing it! But CoD 4 is the best shooter game created (in my opinion), and will still have to battle with the two. Especially when IW is still considering adding additional story and multiplayer to the game. And you know MS isn't going to let Halo just die off like that!
dunno why there is a lot of disagrees for your true comment. It may not have a permanent spot on top but it will for a few weeks after release.
6 months from now it will be Halo3/CoD5/Gears2 battling for top spot. Nice to have an excellent choice of games to choose from though!
Again...Halo 3 has more players than COD4. These charts don't work. They just track ip addresses and not guests. Halo 3 beats COD4 3:1 ratio on players on any given day.
I'm glad they don't count guests...If COD4 had guests it would trounce Halo 3.
@N2NOther Agreed.I know many people love playing Cod4 splitscreen and if they were my guests,the number would expand considerably.
N2NOther is correct...if it is winning in unique IP's, couple that with the fact if you added guest it would totally out pace Haro.
a better game on every aspect.
Gears2 will take the crown for a while though
If you're talking sales... I don't think Gears 2 will beat Halo 3, unless it wows alot of potential buyers. Come to think of it... If they do lower the price to $199... It is possible that it could!
I prefer Cod4 over Halo 3 anyday.The ranking system is deep and hopefilly Infinity Ward gets a new map pack and weapons in a while.As for Gears 2,it better have a deep ranking sytem or Cod5 might just sweep away its crown.
so don't hold your breath.
Actually, COD 5 IS being made by Infinity Ward...World at War isn't and its also not CALL OF DUTY 5.
Halo 3 Sucks !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ha Ha
HALO 3 was supposed to be the killer app online, but it got raped by a multi-platform COD4... Oh gezz, do I want to pay 50 USD to play COD4 or pay ZERO to play COD4 + Warhawk (downloading new patches, trophies + in-game music FTW atm) ROFL!! GAYLO GOT SERVED!
I truely can't believe that people still play Halo 3...literally every friend that owns a 360 that I personally know have used it as a drink coaster since CoD 4 released... cod 4 vs. Halo 3?...its not even an argument...its like who would you rather hang out with?...a 21 year old...or a 12 year old...
there's a lot of pervs on this site who would probably pick the 12 year old
people remebered why they stopped playing halo due to it sucking so bad and went back to cod4. Even my die hard halo friends stopped playing it and they played halo 2 like it was part of their relegion.
