[QUOTE=Mr. Belvedere;2510291]Dude, the game is almost 6 years old. I’ve seen EA games online support getting discontinued within 2 years. If you are so desperately wanting to support it, get a fanbase, hook up servers and do so. Many others have done this for various games. I’m sure Microsoft or Bungie would like to assist you if possible.
Err how does removing a service earning them a quick buck? They discontinued the service. Sure, they might be saving money, but earning?? I don’t get that.
Who are those “we” you are referring to? Can you name ten people belonging to that “we” group of yours? Say “I” , not “we”, if you have no idea who “we” actually are. “You” are not “we”.
There are millions of people who use Twitter. Millions who use avatars. Millions who slap their crap on Facebook. I don’t like it either, but i get the idea. Perhaps millions of people might have some democratic value for a profiting company.[/QUOTE]
now to your first point, due to personal issues right now I have no access to a 360 as of now, let alone the ability to run a server, with that being said, I’d be interested as would more dedicated users on my site for example, but for some people in the world, such things are simpler said than done.
Second point, it’s not the act of removing the service, rather the reason, sacrificing an entire network for the reason of bringing such important new features, but more to the point, what I suspect is a dirty technique to empty more wallets on the 360.
We was maybe too big a word, so apologies, I’m sure it ruined your day, but by we, I speak on behalf of the people of halospy, who active percent of agree with what I’ve said.
Hell, of course they use it, it’s on the system, but I believe that it’s unneccesairy, i have a certainty that nobody was particularly infuriated when those features weren’t there from the beginning, and such things that simply can be used on a computer should not come at the cost of an entire gaming network. And you can tell all the people loosing the live network that that was democratic.
