Bungie plans to do a reset of Halo: Reach's point system come launch. Between illegal downloads, and the inevitable leaks from retail chains, Bungie reckons that a fair few people now have the game earlier than they would like.
Good idea, let every one start at the same time.
Why is the server up to begin with?
I think it will be for the reviewers
Reviews should get an individual review code, and if they give it out, it actually just works on a 360 once, so if it pops-up on another 360, the original 360 will never be able to use it again.
Or... They could just reset everything on the 14th :/
Exactly, while the codes and what not would be a pretty good idea, it's just simpler to reset the scores/points/whatever.
That's good to hear.
Play the game early and this what happens. I means seriously couldn't you idiots just wait less than a month.
Its actually one week now
@Agent-X - Its easy for you to say wait until it comes out, when you have no choice but to wait. I on the other hand am lucky enough to have a mom and pop store on my block. So look at from my point of view. I plan on buying the game regardless of the retailer, and store X has it now, so why would I wait until next week to buy it from Gamestop if I have it available for purchase now? If Walmart is having a sale next week on Halo Reach for $49.99 but Best Buy has it on sale now for $49.99 are you going to wait a week? Hell no you're not. There's no point in buying something at a later date that you plan on purchasing anyway, if its available to you now. Halo isn't an online only game, if I went out and bought tomorrow, I could play single player or firefight or even mess around in forge mode until the game releases. Don't be mad at people who can legitimately buy it early, if you're going to be mad at anyone, be mad at the pirates who steal the game WAY before its even shipped to retailers.
Anyone want a copy of Halo Reach early http://cgi.ebay.com/Halo-Re... There you go, legit early release. People with more money than sense if you ask me. $520.00 for a copy of the game. I'm buying the game myself, but jeez $520.00 for it. Hell no
A game worth twice as much as the console you're playing it on? Count me in!
Sad thing is the guy selling it prolly owns his own Game store and has around 50 copies setting in a box so he decides to try and screw someone.
520? That's just wrong. I wonder if many people actually do this instead of just waiting a measly week or two.
SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO can't wait for this game..first thing im gonna do is go on REFLECTION...then forge world, finally start the campaign and occasionally go on firefight... gonna be SWEET
im gonna do firefight first so i can get some creds to unlock some armour then team slayer/headhunter to get even more creds..then when my spartan looks right ill play story mode...and look flossy in the cut scenes. got my legenday pre ordered and im trading in my current 360 for the reach edition. cant wait :)
I gotta go campaign first out of habit... really inclined to start unlocking armor upgrades upon launch though.
I will start off with campaign, then after a level or two see what my friends are doing and join whoever is in Forge. @Blodulv Campaign does earn you credits
How about banning the accounts that are playing it now? That would be the best.
Some would have just been sold it early from a store which has released it early. Of course ban the pirates one, but it would be unfair to ban people who bought legit.
"Halo: Reach Credits to Be Reset at Launch" Gooddddd thinggggg!!!!!
Once you get a game early and play everything you will be beast in the game while everyone else is just learning wepons locations and getting a feel for the game. The people who got resett will get all those points back in less then a day from the skills and stuff they learned from playing the game early. Now that there will be more people for them to pummel they score will be easier to get. Resetting points just dont work. all the reviewers and such should of needed a server key. server key should be in effect untill the actual release date. Yall got egg on your face because we getting away with pirating a game and playing it for weeks :). Yall gonna get stomped online and wont even know whats up untill a few weeks in. yall will never be the best or good in halo reach now.
it pretty much looks like halo 3. downloading the game free is awesome:)
you need your arse booted of the internet.
maybe from the world? I hear the Moon has great beaches this time of year
On one hand, yeah, it is good so that everybody starts level, but on the other hand it'll be a little frustrating if, (like most preorders), it arrives a couple/a few days early and knowing that there isn't much point in playing online until the 14th. Yeah, you can say that the extra few days is just a few days of waiting, but it'll feel like a much more different case when you have your copy in your hands and you earn stuff just to have it wiped. Maybe wiping it 2/3 days before release would have been slightly better?
