I guess the final nail in the coffin, no more Halo 2 Vista. I know some are using Xbox connect on their 360's to play Halo 2 online but I have not done so yet. I imagine Halo 2 for the nextbox is a sure thing now.
If anybody would be interested in getting the Halo 2 PC achievements with me before the servers are taken down ( ASAP ideally =] ), please swing me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or add me / message me on XBL my gamer tag is Aberrant.
This is a total bummer. From what I've read, it hasn't been very active as of late, (understandable considering its age) but I wanted an opportunity to play Halo 2 online again. With that being said, I understand that servers do cost money, so it's a necessary action. Perhaps 343 will make Halo 2 Anniversary with included online multiplayer (minus the glitches :3).
Wow. So there goes the last bit of hope for being able to play Halo 2 online I guess. It's sad to see it go, but I suppose it was good while it lasted right? I met a lot of good players while playing it and made quite a few fond memories playing Slayer and Oddball. Shame, but hear's hoping for a remake (think Halo: Anniversary)...
