Meanwhile every Call of Duty still has multiplayer, even on the Wii.

Unplayable due to hackers. I tried MW2.

On one hand this makes sense and was bound to happen at some point. On the other it is really suspicious timing that they announce this days after they reveal the new Halo 3 armor and they are forcing the hideous Halo 4/5 designs onto the game and the Halo community had a massive backlash. I'm just curious if there will be any players keeping it alive like they did when Halo 2 was getting shutdown, that was a really amusing sendoff for Halo 2's online. I remember it was a handful of people that got down to one person and I forgot what happened exactly but I believe his Xbox died? It's been ages since I thought of that story.

Xbox 360 has a decent player base, but at some point, we have to move on.

No one is arguing that, it's the fact that they did this after they showed off the new armor and everyone hated it so they are clearly being retaliatory because they demand praise and 343 just keeps doing the opposite of what the fans want.
