    I'm certainly really pissed off about this. I was really looking forward to playing GOOD halo for a change.
    They basically just went off and said, "Oh you thought we meant in July? Nahhhhhh we just meant eventually. Eeevvveeeennnntuuallllyyyyyyy"

    I feel sad for you. I mean, it's Micro$oft. It's a well known fact they will do anything to scam people to join their cult of stupidity and then duck out once they got that base.

    In this case? They baited people to buy Gold, then ddidn't give what they implied. They got what they really wanted: your money. Now they'll stall so you pay for ANOTHER month before you get what you want.

    Gullible, thou name(s) art Microsoft fans.

    I'll await the Xbox mafia to continue controlling my mind and make me pay for a service I've already had for years.

    Instead of a 4 year old that looks like shit, MS should give us the option of taking the points value of the game instead. Then we could apply that to something worth playing. I just looked at this game on youtube, even though its free it would be a waste of space on my 250gb drive.

    At their E3 conference they said those were just two of many free games over the next months up to the release of the xbox one. Why do people think those games were going to be first?

    Happily, what's-his-face is leaving Microsoft's Xbox Division. Good riddance. The past few months have been handled absolutely horribly.

    I'm not going to say that Microsoft is good or bad, but I definitely will say that their PR and information flow is quite possibly the worst I've ever seen for such a huge company.

    Get someone in who can save the brand, ffs!

    MS trolled us! Well, I already have Halo 3 and beaten Assassins Creed 2 so it doesn't really affect me. I'm still disappointed in them though.

    So just typical back and forth information like everything else this year from Microsoft. Main conference says those are just 2 of the games over several months. Then they post that tweet saying those will be the first two. Then they give us Defense Grid.

    At this point I don't really trust much of what Microsoft says. I have a feeling there are many people out there that don't either.

    Microsoft, what a bunch of trolls.

    Wait until the xbone is released and all the restrictions are still in place.

    That really sucks. I was hoping the Halo 3 community would flourish again if the game was free. Also;
