Am I the only person that thinks this is ridiculous? I mean we are spending $3 and some odd change a map. It is asinine. This isn't even the first time Microsoft has done this to us. First we spent 800 points on four gears of war maps. One of which was really bad. (I hated Garden) Not only that but after a little while people went right back to Gridlock. The only map pack I ever bought that was worth the money would have to be the ones for halo 2. (With the exception of that new one that sucked allot) Why can't they nock down the prices on this stuff a little bit. Haven't they already made enough off of halo with the controllers and such.
This leads into my next problem with the whole Microsoft points ordeal. They use 800 points for $10. I think that confuses allot of people. I did not think I was spending that much money on Doom. I mean what sounds more appealing 800mp or $10. I wouldn't have bought have as much I knew that. I mean a dollar for some jpegs wtf. Allot of this stuff should be free or at least allot cheaper. We pay 50 dollars for the service, 20 for a mic, and 5 on horse armor…
That is what I hate about console gaming. After a while you get sick of the normal content and this shit starts to rear its ugly little head. If this was a pc game halo 3 would already have a plethora of maps, game types, and other stuff released. Not only that but they would far exceed the ones we have to pay for. Imagine some of the awesome infection maps you could play on. And the infected would probably be flood. I just hate how much console gaming constricts the freedom of the mod community. Yes there is forge but you can only play on so many maps with different shotgun locations before you are like wow this is gay. No disrespect toward bungie. I think forge is a great Idea but why couldn't their be a map editor like Far Cry's. That would have been great for halo.
Well I guess that is all for today’s rant. Tell me what you think.
