I second that motion with dance.



If this turns out to be true that is.

Good news, hope it is true. Takes halo3 from the maybe purchase to the definitely purchase pile.

Um, you can play four-player with or against each other in multiplayer. Unless they specifically say CO-OP, I'm not buying. Not saying it won't happen, but this isn't a confirmation.


I don't speak dutch, but I have a pretty good idea what coöperatief means. And if two different sites are reporting this, it seems less likely that it's just a misunderstanding (assuming one isn't referencing the other one).

I really thought that if they did get the online co-op working they'd pull the ol' microtransaction move and sell it. If this is true then I may buy Halo 3 afterall. Yes, that's right.... I was considering NOT buying it! :D
SMALL MAPS! :(

Just got of the phone with my editor who is at the Amsterdam event. Frankie just confirmed to him that it is indeed 4 player online co-op. Wuuh!
I trust you, but I still gotta hear this from Bungie themselves. If they announced it at press conference, we should be hearing from them directly.

Fair enough. I'm just saying, there's been tons of rumor and speculation on this subject, and I'll wait for an official confirmation (preferably in English).

I know Luke is lurking around here somewhere...

What's the deal? Can't comment till you've got a article ready for Bungie.net first? :D

Most excellent news. I would have been ecstatic if it was even just 2-player, but 4 is icing on a deliciously mouthwatering cake.

If true, this game is going to have it all. I fear for 3rd parties. No one is going to stop playing Halo :lol

Seriously. Between this, UT3, and COD4 I'll be in shooter heaven this Fall.

If campaign is somehow compensated because of online co-op I am going to kill you ****ers who whined for it in the first place.

Bots are impossible with the amount of equipments and customizability of the multiplayer.


what why?

Time splitters actually had more game customization options and had bots.

If this is true then it really raises the bar not just for 3rd parties but for 1st party studios as well

Isn't the rule of thumb that if Frankie (Or Luke) don't deny it then its to be considered to be true?

Nope. They don't comment on most things, accurate or not. I'm not buying this until they do, though. I refuse to have my emotions toyed with so.

stinkles isn't online...but luke smith is...

If it's true then he's probably having a blast reading these replies.

I'm just waiting for either a dissapointing "uhh...not quite" or a picture of a champaigne bottle being uncorked or something.

EDIT -
WOOOOOO!!!!

What, you mean impossible like bandwidth/technical requirements of online co-op, much less FOUR PLAYER ONLINE CO-OP?
