Halo 3 Offering 2X XP, Gears of War 2 8X XP for 4th of July Weekend

Not partying this weekend for the 4th of July? Maybe no plans? Not invited to the local pool party? Well, sorryboutcha, but at least there’s plenty of gaming to be done this Independence weekend with special events from both Halo 3 and Gears of War 2 to celebrate…

These guys do know that Halo 3 has had double xp weekends every weekend since at least '08, right? Also, didn't gears 2 just have a 8X xp 'week' when Gears 3 got shown off at E3? This site and Gears matchmaking both fail.

Why does the site fail for reporting something, just because you don't like Gears matchmaking? And no, they didn't have an 8X XP weekend the week of E3. God, you are the worst of trolls.

I know 8X XP is unheard of. I haven't played Gears online on my own 360 so I may be on it today.

Duke Spookem2820d ago

8x XP? I guess nobody is playing that game anymore if they need to offer that much to try and get people playing again.

FreeFalling2820d ago

they could just be doing it for Fourth of July.

SOAD2820d ago

Not to sound like a troll, but Gears 2 is still in the top 10 played XBL games currently.

It probably gets more play than many PS3 shooters.

Donny2820d ago

gears is a good game, i bought a 360 for gears 1,2, and mass effect 2.

gynecologistcobra2820d ago

You had a solid comment, but then you mentioned something that could be construed as not-positive towards the PS3, so N4G's going to go all "BAH BAH UR DUMB"

Fanb0y2820d ago

I thought Gears 2 dropped below the top 10 as of a month or two ago?

Lemme double check.

Halo 3 is doing plenty fine. It still amazes me to this day.
I played some yesterday, and there's still a nice balance between pros and noobs in its population. Still fun to play.

What's wrong with MAG? :(
Halo and Gears are cool, but what's wrong with MAG?

gynecologistcobra2820d ago

What does this have anything to do with MAG? At all? Are you just trolling?

"8x XP? I guess nobody is playing that game anymore if they need to offer that much to try and get people playing again."

he was accusing halo and gears online of having a low player count, which they dont

meanwhile I spent 25 minutes waiting to get into a game on interdiction in MAG, a game that has extremely low player counts

so that is why I mentioned MAG

the halo series is not bad, but i prefer killzone 2 over halo anyday.

Whats happening on July 4th?

theEnemy2820d ago

you should just play inside your home the whole day instead of celebrating US' independence day which is being celebrated once a year!

otherwise your just being a hypocrite.
I'm British BTW.
