You try too hard.

But on topic, I don't see how this is a problem. As far as any of us knows, it could be good.

I don't see how you could be happy because the last company that worked on a Halo MMO was closed down:?

If this ever comes into fruition I really hope its a 720 exclusive. I also hope it scores well. Why? Because I buy every console and upgrade my PC every 2-3 years; I dont miss anything. I especially dont want to miss the day where console kids suddenly claim MMOs matter with gleeful comments such as - "Theres so much content. Theres nothing else like this. I cant believe how much stuff there is to do." "343 MMO expansion scored better than X PS4 exclusive. Add it to meta now!" "I cant believe how many people are battling on screen at once!" "I cant wait to pay monthly to get extra Dorito points. After all... Its PENNIES a day. PENNIES. As long as you have a job its worth it to play with friends." "Who cares about graphics in an MMO? Seriously? 9.0 U Mad?" Its going to be great.

Well, I don't think the making of the Halo MMO had all that much to do with them being closed and in fact from the pics, it seems it was looking quite good but perhaps that's just me and my appreciation of the Halo universe. :P

Oh and really, I rather liked the last game they made, Halo Wars and wish they never got shut down. :?

How is this a bad thing? It just means more Halo outside the main releases. This is a great thing.

My response was kind of weird :P. But I mean I can understand that those picture make you happy because it shows what a Halo MMO could become and they look very promising indeed. But to me it's just sad to see Ensemble go like that when they still had a lot of great ideas it seemed (they were working on a lot of projects)

A console-based MMO with an unlimited budget and competent developers handling it. Yeah, totally ownage. Edit: Also, everyone, including Halo fans, have complained about the lack of branching into other genres that the IP has done. Even if the game is "okay" it would probably be better than most generic MMO's released these days.

Maybe they're looking into reviving that Halo MMO project.

Edit: It wasn't Bungie.

I thought Bungie was making some kind of MMO, it takes place in space. I remember I even saw a screen shot of it. It's coming to PS4 and the next Xbox, might even come to PC too.

Bungie is working on an Xbox 3 exclusive called Destiny. Apparently it's a MMO, yes.

Bungie sure is working on a lot of games. They are also working on an FPS trilogy for next gen consoles and PC.

No it's a timed exclusive for the 360 and nextbox for 2013. In fall 2014, if deemed profitable it'll release on PS3, and it's not allowed to be on the PS4.

Oh, my bad. I got the info from an Xbox site. For the obvious reasons, they didn't mention the PS3 version :P

that would be cool. where you play as a different class of soldier and every once in a while a random few users come in as a spartans or hunters or something like that. it wouldn't work though because everyone would want to be an odst :P

More likely its 343s way of advancing console multiplater gaming forward in Halo 5 (like Bungie is with Destiny)

343 vs Bungie :twisted:

Most of them are. And there is a reason for that: the market became oversaturated with them.

On consoles this is not the case so you don't know for sure that there won't be subscription fees.
