You had to pay... around 800 MS points for a full year. It was for a service called Bungie Pro that allowed more file-sharing slots and allowed you to render films in Halo 3 in a format that a PC could read. It doesn't do clan support though. Halo 3 and Reach don't support those. But most of the things being advertised in the trailer are things that Bungie.net does.... for free. Heatmaps and statistics included.TheEvilCheese said:Entirely agree with you, but I have a feeling they will be advertising the crap out of it in-game in MW3.TheRightToArmBears said:You know, so long as the core online play is unaffected I don't really care. I won't get it, but I don't mind it being there.
In any case, cue lots of bitching in 3,2,1..
And hasn't Halo had pretty much this (admittedly we don't know the final content of Elite yet, but I digress) for four years? for free? Just wondering how they can justify charging for this sort of service.
I imagine that they'd do something like that for the Elite subscription. Either way, fuck no I won't subscribe to it. I haven't paid for a single Call of Duty map pack, and I'm sure as fuck not going to pay for a service that charges more than Xbox Live for a month. It's called being financially smart. And besides, we're seeing it from the perspective of the consoles. I mean, PC users have had this shit for absolutely free for a VERY long time.
HOWEVER: If, (and this is a very long shot) and only if there is some kind of extended community support that's permeated in the ACTUAL matchmaking process such as dedicated lobbies, sure, why not? I know it's meant to appeal to a certain kind of demographic. I'm probably not in it.
