If you are looking to pick up the new Halo 3 headset from Gamestop or EB Games, you're going to get ID'ed, assuming the store clerks are doing their jobs.
The headset is likely being considered rated Mature because the game itself is rated Mature.
I'm not sure they should really card for it.... but I don't blame them for doing so and I don't think it's worth reading too much into it.
the 360 halo skin is not rated M neither are the controllers. So far its just the headset.
Finally someone is taking a stand against whinning, glitching little 12 year olds. That scream "You SUCK you F'n n00b!"
First time I actually agree with Gamestop. Now if only we could make this a standard.
and so am i. ;) lol.
i can't imagine a situation where i would let my future, hypothetical kids play an m-rated game online, between the idiot 12yr olds and the idiot adults acting like 12yr olds.
that said, the games rating system is to be much lauded for the lengths it goes to to self govern, but there's always going to be parents that don't care/are clueless. so for those kids, they'll be getting headsets.
I would pay BIG $$$ per year to not have to deal with kids online.
I'd pay $75 per year just to have some reliable age restrictions of 18+, 21+, 30+... Unfortunately, with parents who buy their 10 years olds Gears would likely let them on there also (hence the "reliable"). gCM
I've still met more annoying 20 year olds online than little kids(I'm in my 20's so save the b!tching).Matter of fact one of my favorite friends on live is a 12 year old. It always brings a smile to my face when he kills someone and they know a kid is beating them. They start screaming and whining like they are kids themselves.The little @!$#er has some fast reflexes too. He can hold his own with us 20/30 year olds.
those F'n kids are soo annoying its a good thing they came up with that.
but then again they could just go get a regular headset.
So tired of hearing 10 year old kids on live screaming into the mic and cursing at all of us because they got killed.
And I think this fits the game, because it´s M rated too. Nothing is as much annoying like a 12 year old trying to curse, or talking with a really high pitched voice.
take that halo!
If Halo is gay, then what does that make you? the gayest thing alive right now?
lol that was a weak come back...sorry I had to say it lol.
hmm that really sucks but at the same time prevents morons from being gay
cuz some kids are just gonna find someone to get it for them...if this actually worked, little kids wouldnt have been able to play GTA games that the media keeps b!tchin about...but i agree..too many whiny kids on live, especially in rainbow 6 vegas
im sure they added some sort of adult related function to it like u can attach an electrode to ur balls and get stimulated at the same time as ur head is overdosing of the game.
abotu kids - No more kids on xbox live. yessss. may that day come, i would rather pay £70 a year and not hear some high pitched bullshit
if only there was a quick mute function thats part of the guide when u sign in to live where u can just pick the people u wanna mute when ur in a game
You're going to ID people buying a headset!!!!!!. LORD HELP US ALL!. AHHHH!!!!!
Didn't mean to reply here!! 8D
this is stupid cuzz my friend pre order from gamestop.....and they wont let him pick it up alone cuzz hes 1 month shy of bein 17...kinda stupid considering peoples parents dnt really care
Lol. Unless the Halo 3 headset comes with porn, this doesn't really make any sense. You could buy the Halo 3 headseat to play a teen rated game...
I hope in the near future this becomes a standard. The whining of a 12 year old ruins a game.
I kind of feel bad for the somewhat mature acting 12 year olds.
a good thing. What's next, getting carded to buy a memory card?
