14 halo 2 fans refuse to let it die 500x_custom_1272409308994_bungie-halo-2-xbox-live

Quote :
Lots of people continued playing Halo 2 past the midnight deadline Microsoft gave 12 days ago for discontinuing original Xbox multiplayer support. Fourteen have managed to still keep their consoles connected and running since, prolonging the game's final goodbye indefinitely.

Console overheating concerns and dropped Internet connections have whittled their numbers, but so far, neither Microsoft nor Bungie has gone in and turned off the lights. Writes Joe Campbell, who started a thread on the sit-in/tribute on the Bungie forums:

We will keep playing until we are all forcibly removed. It could be by Microsoft, Bungie, our Xbox's overheating, or just lagging out. Not for competition, not for a prize, but for the love, and memory of Halo 2.

I want to thank everyone that I've played with in the past few days, this is by far my favorite memory in all my gaming history.

A few live streams have captured several hours of footage of the Halo gamers playing long past the bell.

As of writing, the final 14 are: Agent Windex, APACHE N4SIR, sherlok 1, SieferSword, Rob2D, Detenn, z0mbie stench, Lord Odysseus11, xxMAKDADYxx, H2o Shoagie, xxBooker Dxx, DirtyCajun, AForeignObject and HiredN00bs.

LOL, that's probably more than the number of people playing Killzone 2 right now. Seriously though, all the haters who say Halo is shit can't say their games conjure that level of devotion due to the quality of the game.

You can play Halo 2 on XBOX Live with the 360. It has backwards compatibility, unlike PS3

Halo is such an awesome game, and I myself have much passion for it, which is why I am an Xbox fan in the first place is due to Halo CE.

ghost how do you know if its the same match connected?i don't think it is because i saw some go to matchmaking and new lobbies after a match.also its weird because you would think since the service is offline it would automatically kick them off.
