Halo 3 Experiencing Online Issues Reports

Shack-News: Reports flooding in from around the internet, including our very own chatty thread, indicate that problems with Halo 3 are preventing at least some, if not most, from playing the recently released title online.

According to numerous Shackers, players are informed that they must first update the game before they can play online. However, choosing to update presents an error message, thus preventing them from signing into Xbox Live. Others report an inability to upload and access screenshots via Bungie's servers.

Further evidence of a widespread problem comes from Bungie's very own stat tracking, which, as of this writing, shows a paltry 420 players online.

What happened to your "premier online service" bullcrap? Scratched discs, low res co-op slip screen, "finish the fight" misleading adverts. Enjoy!

Do you get paid by Sony?
What is your agenda?

Oh I understand, you see one article posted and instant chub formed in your pants cause it was negative about the xbox 360 or halo 3. The real problem for you is that you ran out of games to play and now your bored so your little brain says, "time make fun xbox 360/Halo master chief suck blah"

PS. Before you bash me for being an xbot <whatever the f that is>, I have a ps2 and I am not buying a ps3 until the price comes down or some actually worth my times comes out for it. The wii is just not my style.

This is a sing every single Halo fan is online and have finish the fight


Warhawk is free to play but you guys pay to play online,33% disc scratches for the special Halo 3 bundle same as 35% to 40% of the 360s world wide failure rates,thats microsoft for you,luring your sad souls for cash...

its obvious that its slow, everyone is playing the game like crazy right now. about 164,000+ people are playing Halo 3 online right now

pwnsause4040d ago (Edited 4040d ago )

things will slow down though in the future to 60,000 just like halo 2, its like this because its launch day. typical for every game that was recently launched and has multiplayer.
