My first game of Reach MM in ages. I go all match on foot, and in the final thirty seconds I get in a tank. Well some jackass steps in my way as I boosted, I get a betrayal and he boots me. Wait... it says I betrayed three people. I'm 90% sure it was just the one at the end. God knows
It was enough to make me turn off the game and play BF3 instead. Such crap.
Is the argument/hunch here that they announce the DLC and the rough timeframe to reassure consumers that the season pass does have a true value with a measurable time frame?
Or are you stating that the the time frame is set to play out completely this close to launch to allow enough time for marketing of the next game/remake/expansion (which may simply be the Xbox 720 - not necessarily a Halo property per se).
The second option would actually make a lot of sense. Release Halo 4. Sell Map season/sparty pass (with guaranteed map packs on a tight schedule) and then you're free to promote the hell out of the Xbox 720 as soon as the last DLC has been pushed out (at that point they're betting they would have already made most of their money from season pass holders and they won't care about people waiting for the 720 cannibalizing their Halo dollars.)
EDIT - Using this argument can we deduce the announcement of the 720 will come sometime approximately a month after the final Halo 4 map pack? Which would give them just enough time to promote and launch by Thanksgiving.
Well you could technically just play firefight and campaign and try to do it that way. Also, even if you win or lose, you still gain xp. Again, no real skill involved, which is why I keep fighting for a skill-based ranking system for H4.
Not at all. Your post was nothing more than meta nonsense about how many OTs HaloGAF goes through and my post was calling attention to how useless posts like these are what makes HaloGAF a chore to keep up with nowadays.
So will we get more multiplayer map packs after the third one in April? It seems weird to release all the new maps so quickly after launch and then leave such a long period between the last map pack and the next game. Unless...
