Halo 2 will vanish from XBox Live on April 15, 2010
"You will not be able to play Halo 2 on Xbox LIVE going forward" says Microsoft.
I have spent many hours off and on playing this excellent game. For all its shortcomings I got a real thrill when I was able to win a Rumble Pit game. At other times I wanted to curse the server administrators and developers for the inconsistent response that I got during the course of a few hours of playing on Live!
Anyone still playing Halo 2? You will of course still be able to play, just not on Live!
I am playing a few hours a week until it goes away...Then its time to move over to Halo 3 for good. The new version that comes out soon feature rocket packs - that should add another dimension to the game
