Info: Download: $18 Disc: $20 (includes side story which OXM said was boring) I'm downloading since I have already bought Sanctuary and Turf. Plus, its cheaper. The maps will be free to download on August 30th.
I'll download them the day they're released. I also have already purchased the Killtacular Pack, and I have the autoupdate, so the disk would be a waste of my money.
I'd buy the disk, but I heard you can only use it once (or was thta a rumor I made up...)
I remember seeing it somewhere on Bungie.net, so if it's your rumor, it's gone far.
I feel sorry for the guys who are splitting the cost.
Thw disc isn't for the XBL people its for the non-XBL people meaning system link people and the good ole' split screen peeps. It isn't for the XBL upper class pricks(sorry about the language*)but thats the way it is. But the disc is probably the best way to go anyway because you wont have to go through the same crap as you would on XBL, you will just have to put the disc in and let it do the work. XBL I reckon will be a manual download and is just gunna shorten your download limit. My guess is it will be about 500mb if not more and 500mb can get you 31 and a bit hours of XBL.
What to download them?, are you crazy?, it doesn't take that long to download the maps, and it is not 500MB, that would take up a huge portion of your hard drive. And what do you mean by manual download?, you just go to the download content page, and select one of the map packs and select download, and when its done, you can just go play it, thats it.
I'm not sure about the rest of you but here in Australia we already have the Halo 2 Multiplayer Map Pack and I have been playing a System Link since the day I got it (which was June 27th). So I thought I would let you all in on some of the courses. Relic is massive awsome for 1 flag CTF and thats about it and for the people that are expecting to got right out in to the ocean as cover think again because once you got out to far there is a drop off meaning you die. Terminal is great, the train is so f******* fast, the only way to survive a hit from it is by either crouching in the middle between the 2 tracks or jumping high enough to just slide across the roof of it. Gemini is alright gets confusing because it is dark and yeah well its dark. Backwash is tiny about as big as lockout and has some good sniper spots if you want to snipe. And Elongation can be confusing because it is just so small with no where to run when you get caught. And for those you are think about not getting the the disc I tell ya your missing out on a great short animated story it lasts about 5 mins it is the from the very start of the campaign level Outskirts when MCs pelican and another pelican that gets shot down(the one that crashes behind the hotel ZANZIBAR) and the documentary is also pretty useful for when you need info on the maps.
...or you could just read the articles that Bungie posted on their website and that the Halofiles news team reposted on halofiles.com.
I didn't make it!
