should i wait for the xbox online to come out? or get gamespy??

i know about gamespy, but i dont have all the money to buy all those extra stuff that i need to play, like the hub, cat5, etc.

xbox online will come out sometime at the end of spring or beggining of the summer, by that time ,i'll be able to have the money to buy those stuff that i need to play gamespy or the xbox online.

i want to kick some asz soon


should i wait or not???

Honestly...if you play Halo on-line, you won't want to buy a new game until the new On-line network is up. It's awesome!

if you dont have much money it sounds like you wont be able to afford xbox live... I have been waiting for xbox live to go online also. One thing that might get me on gamespy is... i dont know if halo will be online... i think they didnt put that in the game

That's another good point....Halo won't be able to be played on-line this summer via Microsoft's new on-line forum. Unless Bungie provides an add-on disc, the only way to play Halo on-line is by other means (Gamespy, XBConnect, or XBoxconnector, etc).

Personally, I can't wait for Unreal Championship this summer!!!! Yeah!! :D

You beat me to it. People have to realize that system link games wont be played through MS online network.

i bet bungie will make an add on disk for online play... maybe with a few extra levels, and multiplayer levels:p that would be sweet!:eek:

When confronted about the halo 1.5 rumors the bungie team basicaly said "STFU, Were working on the PC version now"

Gamespy's a quick fix. Once MS online is up and running, Tunnel will wilt like a picked flower. If you can only afford one, wait for the real thing. Otherwise, go for both.
