Gamers-creed have received confirmation that,the ongoing Xbox Live update which is currently in progress right now is only a maintenance in preparation for Halo 3's launch.
did say this i thought this was why in the article saying about XboxLIVE update.
I wonder what their changing? Working on servers for xbox live for the millions who will hop on right away?
Probably to handle the massive amount of people that are going to play Halo 3. There's going to be tons of 2 player, 3 player, and 4 player co-ops games going on, and that's a huge strain right there. Add to that Forge, and all the MP games that will be played, plus the video/image saves, swaps and more. That's a helluva lot of stress
and if this update means that 4 player co-op is gonna run fine then this update could take a week for all i care, itd be damn worth it
Thats what I was thinking... That could explain why the message sent to us by MSFT said update and not maintenance the last maintenance only down period MSFT sent a message saying down for maintenance. It could be both maintenance and the update you have in your link its the same thing my point is its not the average spring cleaning; so to speak..
Theres gonna be a crapload of games on 25th.
this was totally expected id rather have a ton of Halo 3 updates NOW..than having a buggy Halo 3
on 9/25/07 xbox live will blow up. as you pop in that halo 3 disc into your 360 and try loading it up, your tv will blow up, your 360 will blow up, your speakers will blow up, your dirty dog peto will blow up. no one's safe, there's nothing anyone on this planet can do to prevent this, halo 3 will consume you, devour you, beat you, rape you and then spit on you. halo 3 will put a fu*k'n crack in this world and swallow everything in it. seriously, on september 25 sh!t will go down! i'm soooooo ready for this!
Yea. This game will put a crack in existence and universe as we know it from it's awesomeness and MC's pure cyborg balls.
Don't you think that Gears of War has had at the very least 1 million people playing multiplayer during any given period? I'm sure the only reason they did it was for psychological warfare purposes - to make people think that Halo 3 is SO AWESOME that it needs to fix Live to be able to handle it... or most likely to store all your clan info and user videos. Don't you remember the update about a month ago that "prepared the 360 for wireless guitars"? Do you think that was also because they don't think Live could handle all those people playing Rock Band and Guitar hero III at the same time? Seriously, get your head out of your ass...
listen fu*ker, ever heard of a sense of humour? stupid ass. here i am joking about sh!t and you think i'm being serious? sh!t that says alot about how fu*king stupid you are. of course they're doing all this crap to hype the game up even more asswhipe! nobizlikesnowbiz understood that i was joking as i'm sure others who've read my comment would agree. so joking aside, why don't you take your grandma's dildo out of your ass and pluck it in your yap!
seriously, rubarb? i think you need to hone your wit or you'll just get muddled up with everyone else that's really excited for halo.
Exactly... AND my comment was not meant specifically for you anyways.
One thing I've always done is skip over any article I don't care about. People are going to play what they want and like what they like. The people that come in here spouting off "Don't buy into the Hype" "Don't play ____ game" just need to get a life. In the end, I think they just rant against any game they don't like, but alot of other people do. Play what you want, and don't worry about what other people play.
Was the source of this article, by chance, majornelson? Because he basically said all of that on his show yesterday.
coz gears was well rubbish.............. ahem NOT and your telling me all thats ever going on in PS3 news isnt METAL GEAR 4 THIS METAL GEAR 4 THAT
Personally I think live might have serious trouble the day halo is released - there will be sooooooooo many people playing (especialy me, I might even get a couple of days off to play). Hopefully, this preventative measure wil help ease there fears on mine. So.... whos up for some multiplayer on release night?
taking wed,thur and fri off sad i know but i dont giv a sh1t
