Bungie.net Redesign Gets Statistical

Bungie.net has relaunched boasting an all new look and feel as the countdown to Halo 3’s release continues. And in addition to the unrivalled stat tracking services that are already a mainstay on Bungie’s official site, the eventual drop of Halo 3 later this year will also trigger extensive support to the title in ways we have yet to see... Posting on the revised B-net, Tom Gioconda commented on the new design and hinted at what we might see coming into effect later in the year; "We’ve been wanting to make a lot of fundamental changes to how Bungie.net works for a long time now, and we also needed to redo a few things to get ready for the Halo 3 beta and eventual release in the Fall. This is just the first step. This is way more than a visual overhaul. Many fundamental changes have been made to the content system, our new layout control system, the profile pages, stat pages, etc. Pretty much everything about the site has changed." And speaking specifically about Halo 3, he continues, "The best example of preparing for Halo 3 is the merging of the My Profile and My Stats pages. As much as possible, we’ve tried to eliminate the multiple identities players have had between their bungie.net persona and their Xbox Live persona. Take everything about Halo 2 in the Profile section, and expand it… plus a few things that you really won’t expect. We intend to completely raise the bar over what we did with Halo 2." Super. But what about that Halo 3 Beta, will this trigger some of these tasty new tidbits? "I think we’re still deciding how much to show, but it is likely that you’ll get what you get with Halo 2 now, perhaps excluding the game viewer, for the Halo 3 beta. After all, we have to save the new stuff for the release." Boo! Oh well, I suppose you can see their point. But not wanting to leave us on a sour note the team has also posted a final round-up of the outgoing B-net’s stats, based around the online play of Halo 2; and its safe to say that some of the numbers are astronomical! What other console title can lay claim to 4.75 million players? The list in full is: * 4,536,153,393 Player Games – that’s over 4.5 billion player games (basically counting each player in a match). * 669,894,344 Games - Almost 670 million actual games (a game being one entire session of say, CTF or Team Slayer). * 4,756,377 Players – That’s just what it looks like. 4.75 million Gamertags. * 6,897,295 Clans – Folks change clan a lot, But that’s still a crazy number. Can Halo 3 top that? If we were betting folk, our money would be on Bungie’s new steed in a flash.
