I got ADSL just for live. and i was so friggin' excited about getting it, I had saved up the money for my XBL connection and everything. My ADSL was connected on a friday night, i had it set up by the saturday morning, and when i went to get my XBL pack, they told me i HAD to have a credit card for it.
Now I have a 12 month contract for ADSL that I cant use for what i originally intended because the bastiges say I have to have a credit card. My brother got one and offered it to me for use just to get on, but now X360 will be out shortly, and so I want to save my pennies for that instead. Yay for playing an outdated service that nobody's on anymore, i can see it now
Halo2 - Players: 1 - BobJim17
Halo3 - Players: 434,720 - Everyone Else.
And dont even get me started on the cheating, although I have never played on XBL, for there to be ANY cheaters on a paid service is disgusting. Bungie have really let themselves, and all their loyal fans, down with that. The fact it rages unchecked astounds me.
Not that I find Kai any better, i always suffer from horrendous lag (compared to normal playing, not game-to-game comparison) and there are so many cheaters on the rare occasions i can find a playable game, that im sure to become bored before long. Not that i mind getting my arse kicked, thats what makes me a better player, but to have three seconds of life? no thanks.
Anyway, just my two cents.
