Thanks for pointing that out, we'll have to wait for Blimblim. There seems to be some kind of error with the original file. The file can be downloaded though.

Should have been free from the start..

1 simple rule, don't charge for community splitting DLC..

I wish they would listen.. If they really cared about their fans they would..

I wonder if these maps being free will boost Halo 3 to #1 on XBL again for a few weeks. Or will the BF:BC beta and COD4 continue to keep players pre-occupied.

Well at least that's logical. I too will be downloading this free and doing a burst of Halo 3 MP.

I think the free Halo 3 content coupled with the $10 COD4 map pack might give Halo 3 the lead for a while.

They said from the start it would be free later.

As with the above point, they weren't added before because not everyone would have been able to use them. It would be pretty annoying to try and find a match, only to fail repeatedly because you don't have the new maps. Duh.

They did. But in fact as a DLC owner you almost never have the chance to play them in regular MM because everyone needs to have them in the lobby. Bungie will now force the people to download the free mappack in order to play certain playlists.

hehe that is a cool trailer. Not cool how we've had to wait months for this to become free though!

Love Bungie? Please, if they love us then they wouldn't have charged us in the first place.

The one thing I really want to see is matchmaking for coop games. It sucks being only able to play with people from your friend list, I want to play a round or two without having to talk people into playing the game. Gears of War can do it, so why not Halo 3?

I agree.
So you think the game should have forced everyone to buy a map pack?
Ah, I see. This isn't a PS3 game.

I agree, but I don't think there's any hope of them adding that now. Crackdown had it too for that matter. I think there are other titles as well.

Some people are new at this. There's a reason new maps aren't in rotation at first.

What's up?
  • Melmoth

    Melmoth The companies are fighting for peoples time. If everyone watched netflix the whole day there would be no time to play games. (7 Hours ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth @Sdarts: the competition is wherever people spends their time. (7 Hours ago)

  • Sdarts

    Sdarts Anyway, that's how I see this and what I believe will happen. But I'm not an expert at any of these things, so as just another bloke on the internet, let's just wait and see, time will tell. (7 Hours ago)

  • Sdarts

    Sdarts Unless Microsoft royally fucks things up, Microsoft will "print money". And that's it. Sony and Nintendo will still be great, Microsoft will still earn more. (7 Hours ago)

  • Sdarts

    Sdarts on Netflix. Specially kids and teens. Netflix is Microsoft's aspiration in the gaming space. Sony can be as successful as they want, they're no longer competing at the same level. (7 Hours ago)

  • Sdarts

    Sdarts Netflix doesn't give a fuck about it. Netflix itself has said their competitors are something like Fortnite, because it's so successful that the time people spend on it, is time they're not spending (7 Hours ago)

  • Sdarts

    Sdarts If anyone needs a perfect analogy, Sony is like HBO, while Microsoft wants to be Netflix. HBO makes some of the best TV shows ever. Period. Netflix's shows aren't at the same level of quality as HBO's (7 Hours ago)
