Death of a Shooter: Halo 3's Xbox 360 Multiplayer Is a Ghost Town

Nine years later and almost all of the guns on Halo 3's battlefields are silent on the Xbox 360. The spirit of the game lives on in Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

Well, this shows that people who are playing Halo have understandably moved on to the Xbox One.

Who approves these articles? That would be the telltale sign of why these moronic articles about Xbox/Halo keep popping up.

An Xbox 360 game that came out in 2007! Woohoo! Must be slow news day.

It's not an official site or anything. Essentially anyone with an opinion can type up an article. Hence all the garbage and clickbait you see everyday.

Unspoken1522d ago (Edited 1522d ago )

Yeah, but certain folks in the community can also approve or find ways to disapprove certain articles leading to further bias. It's comical.

And that's not even getting into the one-sidedness of some moderators on here.

Or just that people aren't playing it anymore.

Erik73571523d ago

Na its halo, people still played this game after 5 years it came out..

jivah1523d ago (Edited 1523d ago )

Lol there was a solid 350 people on the Halo 3 pc version last night. Such a fun game tho

Incase you had a "huh" moment

C L O U D1523d ago

Halo 3 was all I played on 360 Thank you...downloading this right now!

Master Chief Collection, Halo 5: Guardians

Septic1523d ago

Yeah lol its been a decade and TMCC and Halo 5 are out. What were you expecting?

sammarshall1021523d ago (Edited 1523d ago )

Lol right. How many years has it been since it released. I can see if it came out this year

Ikonic1523d ago

I was actually surprised when I saw the headline because if I'm honest Halo 3 in the MCC is broken.

Now did halo 3 have its share of issues, sure, but the game still felt playable. In MCC though, it adds even more issues with aiming and latency, so much so that I find MCC Halo 3 unenjoyable, and I played Halo 3 for years even after reach had come out.

Paytaa1523d ago (Edited 1523d ago )

By far my greatest gaming memories happened on this game. Never forget Halo 3. Never again will there be another game like it.

Halo 3 was the definitive peak of the series and it kept a strong population even after Reach came out 3 years later. Halo 3 was a cultural phenomenon and Halo will never be able to recreate that.

I'll miss you old friend.

ThunderPulse1523d ago

Playing Infection on the Custom map Trains was so much fun.

Paytaa1523d ago (Edited 1523d ago )

Halo 3 offered literally the perfect mix of competitive and casual play. I could be playing MLG all day then once my friends came on we'd be playing Jenga, Duck Hunt, Zombie Defense, Left 4 Dead, Trash Compactor, etc.

It'll be something I'll always look back on as something I grew up with and was a game that was more than a game to me.

I'd still play Halo 3 over any other shooter including Halo 5 to this day.

ThunderPulse1523d ago

@Paytaa I totally forgot about Jenga lmao having random junk launched at you while trying not to fall off.

Codewow1523d ago (Edited 1523d ago )

Indeed. I loved playing Jenga on Standoff. I loved playing dodge the junk on foundry, I loved making the elephant fly on sand trap. So many great memories and hundreds of hours of playtime with all things, infected, shotty snipes, Duck Hunt, Michael Jackson, and plenty more that I will miss dearly.

sammarshall1021523d ago

Halo 5 has the best multiplayer though

Paytaa1523d ago

Halo 5 has REALLY good multiplayer and it's arguably the best FPS I've played mechanically since Halo 3 but classic Halo is now a niche left untouched. That type of gameplay is now gone and it sucks because in my opinion that was the perfection of the FPS.

Halo 1-3 is still my benchmark for the FPS genre. Games are timeless to me.

81BX1523d ago

Is it me or does halo 5's overshields seem stronger than past halos?

mynd1523d ago

@81BX 2 Shot guns up close, or assassinate from behind and it may as well have no over-shield.

Paytaa1523d ago

@mynd Assassinating someone with OS is one of the few things 343 brought back from Halo CE where it was a one hit kill from behind.

I think it's more balanced in Halo 5 than past Halo games

LAWSON721523d ago (Edited 1523d ago )


Assassinating an OS guy has always been a one hitter, maybe Halo 2 but I know for a fact 3, 4, Reach all have back assassinations.

Also OS is OP as heck in 5 IMO especially compared to previous OS, whether that is bad I don't know considering power weapons are used for map domination if you look at it from that perspective it is just a tactical point to take advantage of

"Of course almost all of the content to be found in all 4 previous entries in the Halo franchise is accessible on the Xbox One via the Master Chief Collection, but at the time of writing I don’t own one of those."

sorry to hear you can't play it on the XBox One. One thing intrigues me, this article makes it seem like Halo is not popular anymore, when its far from the truth., It may not have the following it did when it was on the OG or 360, but for those that bought the X1, We all play Halo be it on the MCC collection or Halo 5 where the multiiplayer is fantastic.
