A server problem with XBLIVE has wiped out all Halo Wars stats.
can't believe we pay for live to have this happen
meh halo wars was lame anyways....now if it happened to halo 3 there would be riots worldwide.
Sadly, Live subscriptions offer very little substance. You'd THINK there would be more stable servers. You'd THINK there would be stronger cheat-prevention measures. You'd THINK, but it's not the case. At this point, people are paying $50 for cross-game chat. Everything else can be found for free elsewhere.
Some people put a lot of time into their stats.
Maybe they will recover them...this isn't a huge stat-driven game I don't think, personally I thought the game was awesome..as long as my achievements are still good I'm fine. lol, he's baaaaaack.... JOY
This has never happened to me on my supposedly "crappy" free PSN. Get what you pay for? Not with Microsoft. EDIT: Didn't take long for the disagrees, you all seem to get so stuck up when I mention PSN's continued reliability.
It's funny how the people that think XBL is a "rip-off" are the ones that don't have X360s. Guys give it a rest, no amount of bashing will make a X360 owner buy a PS3 or stop paying $30 a year for XBL. Just enjoy your PS3 and let the others get "ripped-off" peacefully, you don't see them complaining. EDIT : Can the people that disagreed with my comment at least tell me why they disagree?
Why would I go and support a console that only lets me access half the content I paid full price for and only lets me access the other half after I've paid and additional cost to the console maker while another console lets me access all of the content on a disc that I paid for?
wating for games huh! ya know i coulda sworn the 360 hasnt had a game to talk bout all year.....except this and everyones stats got wiped......awsome keep siding wiht MS they give you a great gaming experience
No. Wow, someone's gonna get fried for this one, I'd love to hear their excuse. The consumer must be feeling he paid to get screwed, that's poetic.
"It's funny how the people that think XBL is a "rip-off" are the ones that don't have X360s." Well yeah... they wouldnt buy an Xbox if they think its a ripoff lol
"It's funny how the people that think XBL is a "rip-off" are the ones that don't have X360s." Obviously, as people who think something is a rip-off usually tend to avoid it. I've had both Xbox Live and PSN and I really believe all that's missing from PSN that a sensible person would need is more people to talk to via headset, but that's provided solely by the users, not the company, so there's no sense in paying Microsoft for that.
360 sells more than ps3. People must enjoy being ripped off!
Don't you mean "Ha Haaaaah!"?
HAHA man that is just so sad! you get what you pay for, if you're dumb enough to pay for a service that's in fact nothing more than a permit visa that grants you what, access to online play? WOW, hey, makes sense. knock yourselves out gents.
so thats where the 50 bucks you spend goes, i thought it was for the dedicated servers....... wait a second............
lol too true. man i heard MW2 will be butter smooth on xboxlive with it's dedica... oh wait a sec, that's on the ps3 never mind lag on. Edit: @ below. dude regardless we'll still be able to download the same files. just cause you get it quicker doesn't mean you're a winner lol. face it you're paying for a service others get for free and more. you guys are too easy to own.
i only payed 30$ for a year. pretty soon ill be streaming 1080 movies...while your still downloading...worth the petty cash.
thats pretty stupid
Jealousy is a powerful thing Icy.
don't worry gamer111, we already got bluray and you got the free streami..... wait it hasn't come out yet, darn
i have a ps3 also. and netflix. and i love my blu-rays from netflix and i love my netflix on my 360. shhh
hmm guess you get what you pay for huh? this is epic fail. how people could cough up $50 yearly for a broken promise is beyond me. sheeps deserve to suffer.
anyone who still defends M$ for such a crappy service is a sheep. atleast on the ps3 it's free so you needn't be bothered. the fact that it comes standard with dedicated servers is a deal stealer. i know i wouldn't want to pay for the telephone line while i'm already paying for the calls i make. you people just don't make sense. excuse my rant but i sympathising with my fellow gamers. stop paying unecesary cash and start being smart. if no one paid M$ wouldn't have an excuse to charge you. man no wonder why the 99.9 percent of the world think video games are for kids. because we have people making childish decisions. Edit: @ below. well guess you've been staying far too long in your bat cave cause all ps3 gamers have been playing AAA games since launch. i'm not even gonna mention the first half of the year. sounds to me you're doing massive damage control cause i could have sworn the 360 hasn't had one decent game worth mentioning the whole year. now just smile and act cool k. we wouldn't want you to blow a circuit bo...
...there isn't a game that I would want to pay to play on the PS3 except Uncharted 2, but yeah Playslaves have a winner with that game...nothing else though.
Sheep are Ninty fanboys....
yeah it is free. i don't really play my ps3 online. doesn't feel like a community or well put together everything is a hassle on psn i feel like at least. plus i know 3 people with a ps3 who dont really play online and 40 people who acctually play xbox live.
doing some serious damage control you cant justify the price dude plus whats a hassle on psn?
you get what you pay for.....lol didnt like the game, based upon the demo, so dudnt matter to me and I so hope MS steps up and take care of those gamers if those stats cant be recovered...this is shameful on MS part...some gamers are gonna be so upset.. and rightfully so..
umm i only paid $30 a year...you cant afford that you shouldn't have video games as a hobbie
it's not that alot of people can't afford it, it is just a ripoff to pay for a service that doesn't even have dedicated servers for their games and to have stuff like this happen. But you are free to pay for whatever you like. I will stick with my silver account and if I feel the need to play online I will use my PS3 for free with dedicated servers for their games.
thats exactly what I (and im sure other people) see as the problem, is it ok to be charged just cause u can afford it? when the comptetitor isnt doing so? Sony should charge a dollar for everytime the console is turned on, it seems pretty affordable, sure its worth it, but it shouldnt be done.
When the PS3 launched the higher end model was only, essentially, 50bucks more than the higher end 360 model but people made it seem like it was 3times the cost of the 360. Why didn't people apply the same logic you use to justify the price of Live with the price of the PS3 back then?
Your comment is just plain asinine Most people can afford $30-$50 a year but that does not mean you should enjoy paying $30-$50 for almost nothing. Are you that happy about paying for a service that doesn't offer the same reliability that PSN does? I'm not saying Xbox Live isn't a good service, but I would never defend Microsoft for charging a ridiculous amount for nothing but a few little things. Just because you can afford it, does not mean you should have to pay for it.
the best online friend support. netflix with the ease of streaming. soon 1080 movies streamed...no more downloading. i can watch netflix with freinds. 1 v 100 is FREE and giveout prizes 10000ms is 130$. thats awesome. i feel that i only play online fps and the 360 suits me better. and it is worth my petty cash just for those reasons. psn is just always playing catch up it seems. i love my ps3 i just feel in the online overall experience is better on live. but that should upset you guys. i mean uncharted 2 gow 3...360 cant do that and thats why i love my ps3. and im glad my consoles are different.
...you're not moving any mountains.
yeah on n4g it somehow feels like you're always talking to a brick wall. it's like the kids have their fingers in their ears screaming "la la la la" lol.
Theres not one 360 owner comment, even a pissed of Halo Wars owner. Edit:: Take it back looks like Gamer1111 joined the discussion with his fail comment.
Another fail comment, go somewhere with your kiss ass bubbles.
just trying to have some good fun, i dont see bubbles as a problem.
Does this happen on the free "inferior" service? NO.
.. and if it ever did, hey, it's free right? People would still be mad (and justly so) cause that's ruining the enjoyment of something they paid to for when they bought the disc... ...but TO ACTUALLY PAY for online service?! and have these kinds of things happen? Wow, I guess Sony knows there fanbase cause if the PS3 fanbase were paying for online gaming and this kind of thing happened there'd be pure hell to pay by Sony. Forget some free crappy DLable game, it'll have to be something proper. This wasn't some 3rd party game, this is an in-house 1st party exclusive game. I just dont' get the rational with supporting stuff like this.
This happend on Gears 2 for me. don't expect anything to be done about Halo Wars, I still have yet to get a straight answer from epic on whats going to be done about it with Gears.
It's good I never bought this game, I know I woulda gone mental if it had happened to my Halo 3 stats
When you see this kind of stuff happening with other games on the service, what makes you feel certain that it's a sure thing it won't happen to halo3 or any other online game you enjoy?
Why do you care? You have a PS3, the games are better, PSN is as good as LIVE and it's free, you also have a blu ray player, an internet browser... so why are you here? Are you by any means interested in an X360 or you're just here to fulfill your fanboy agenda?
another live mess up and they say live's servers and network is overall better lol buggy DLC and now this lmao you get what you pay for lol psn free no hassle live = problems no mooks, soda or murder on this article jeez i thought they would be here by now defending 360 shows how they dont like bad 360 news they run off but on every ps3 article they moan about it
"<:X-Box Live:> It's Good to Pay Together" tsk tsk, thats why i dont pay for live anymore lol. anyway hope they r able to restore it, i mean from the billions they made from live they should be able to do that with all that money right? hope so guys
... lol, you're going to have to move that to open zone.
but then no one would read it, honestly i never eve remember theres an open zone lol. but the i dont know why people would be mad when im defending them, i believe that if these people r paying they shud get the best service, that they shud be happy. not that they shud experience so much downtime, glicthes, stat erasing etc. im mad at MS for screwing us gamers over thats all. MS better do somethin bout it......but they wont im tryin to be there for fellow gamers like a friend is to another friend when his GF cheated on him, even if u love MS so much u shudnt let it cheat u! call MS and let ur voices be heard! :)
lol, it looks like the fees everyone pays for live isn't going towards making a superior service like 360 fanboys love to claim. instead it looks like its going more towards fattening corporate vip wallets, that sounds like a trustworthy investment.
This site should just change to be a Playstation fan site. I have both consoles and my PS3 sits doing nothing unless I feel the urge to play one of the few games it has. Yes I'm quite happy to pay $50 a year for XBOX Live. I've have rarely, and I mean rarely had issues with it unlike PS3 that's always dropping connection when I try to play online. Sad for the gamers that lost thier stats, but it's just a game and you can work your way back up again.
u basically want this a 360 fansite now ur saying because U dont use ur PS means it has no games? isnt it the same thing for someone like me who uses his xbox for only exclusives? i havent played a good exclusive since what 2008? why do i have to wait for fall 2009 for games to come out and ones im barley waiting for. my green 360 is turning brown because i havent used it this year now im not tryina be a fanboy but fact is which ever console is someones main it will get played the most, if someone only has the other console for exclusives then no matter what it is its used rarley. so its not fair to say PS or xbox sux cuz no one uses it when its not their main console. PS has had the most good exclusives this year but fact is everyone is mostly playing the same games, prototype, COD, madden, guitar hero and need for speed. the only legit battle for console is exclusives, not who uses what the most because they owned a 360 first or a PS first, duh ur gonna stick with what ur used to and dude about the online, honestly my 8 player halo lags online and my 60 player resistance and killzone lags zero amount of the time and i use both wireless so maybe its just ur PS?
i agree Midgard228 i honestly dont remember the last time my PSN has lagged but when i used live on my xbox360 i experienced lag alot especially on soul calibur 4, which has never lagged on my PS3
Where did I say I wanted this site to be 360 fan site, nowhere did I say that. In fact i want it multi-platform site, however this site is blatantly pro playstation and anything that is posted for the 360 or any other console in-fact is frown upon by the masses. Whoever moderates the site are mainly to blame for the fanboyism. You can't have a decent discussion without someone flaming you because you mention the words Xbox or Microsoft. A while back I got warned because I used the words "Sony Fanboys." Yet others who said the words "Xbox Fanboys" didn't get warned. Says a lot about the site doesn't it?
People actually pay $50 for this? rofl
$50/year and stuff like this happens? Unacceptable. Microsoft completely screws over their customers.
The server must have RRoDed. Edit: Now that I think of it, this has been the only HYPED game for the 360 this year, and this is how M$ repays you for all those $50 bills you tossed at them? LOL, what a joke. Jump in.
I mean, it`s pretty bad that this crap is happening with a paid service. But, with the massive amount of players compared to other online services, I`ll let it go and pretend it didn`t happen.
you guys act like paying for a service is supposed to work flawlessly. you hear news about this on live a FEW times a year. no different from your other problems with other services you pay for going out (cable tv, isp, mmorpgs, etc)
They dont care about their fanbase if they did they wouldn't charge for their service.That offers peer to peer on multi plats COD4,CoD WaW, etc just like the inferior PSN thats so hard to navigate through the XMB you need a PhD to use the PS3 so complicated.When socom confrontation came out slant six got their heads chewed off on the web sites forums until they fixed the game.I was one of the fans complaining all the time to fix stuff.So that they know "/6" not to mess with its fanbase,and that you have to keep your fans happy if you want a game to have a sequel.
Here is what they should do to repay the gamers.Make all the DLC free.That should work
This is why I dropped my gold, and am staying silver.
