    Clicky

    More details

    So, do you have to pay for this or what? (Possibly for Silver users apparently.)

    Note to self: Remember, remember the fifth of November.

    Edit FFS Thats what I get for sitting on the submit button. Die monkey, die!

    Would be nice if I could check my stats and stuff for Halo 3 on XBL instead of Bungie.net.

    Valar morghulis.

    Is it just me or is this a few years too late?

    Possibly, but it's also becoming more necessasry. This year we had the first Halo game not made by Bungie, and there are more to come, from new studios (343). Bungie themselves are finishing up a new Halo game, and working on yet another. There's an increasing need, as Halo becomes even more popular, to aim all this information and content at an interested audience.

    So how am I supposed to see this? Is this something like home or more like the even blander spotlight channel items?

    It's like a new section to the xbox dash.

    Halo 3 stats on Dash (preferably accessible via Guide, a la Halo 3 File Share/Party Details/Service Record) PLX. If I could check my K/D on the fly I'd love it. One thing Halo 3 was missing. Bungie.net is great, but why couldn't it have been integrated into the game itself?

    Also, Lutz - streaming is shit? Do you have a borked Xbox or something? Or has your poor Halo 3 online experience infected your streaming? Mine loads in about 4 seconds and plays all the way through without stopping 95% of the time!

    Streaming relies on several things that downloading doesn't.
    It relies on their servers, your broadband connectiong being good (Mine is about 1.7 to 1.9 download) and you actually have a connection to XBL to watch it. I also find there's a *lot* more artifacts in streaming video.

    Streaming is OK, but a download option would be nice.

    Weird. I have to say my streaming 'experience' is fine most of the time.

    THe other problem of streaming is when new stuff comes out. Everyone is hammering it, and servers can only dish out stuff so fast. If it's a stutterfest you've got no choice but to wait a while in the hope that it's cleared up. If not, wait again. Or try the next day.

    With a download you can see how long you have to wait, then go.

    Fantastic idea. Like Bungie.net on the dash? Brilliant.

    It would be even better if they integrated it with all Halo games as well, with you able to access all the in depth stats (number of kills with a sticky, for example) within the game. Better still if you could look at it all while you are in the lobby waiting for matchmaking to get it's arse into gear.

    Was thinking just the other day actually how great the leaderboards are in Shadow Complex. Just think if the next Gears (using the most likely game to use those leaderboards for an example, with it being an Epic game and all) not just had leaderboards for rank and points, but also for chainsaw kills, campaign kills, hell, even the amount for time you spent crawling on your hands and knees after being 'downed'. Be fucking ace if Halo Waypoint was like this and kept track of pretty much everything you did within the game and allowed you to compare it with your Friends List and the world :)

    The next step for leaderboards!

    You don't believe MS progress bars do you?

    Just downloaded this now, doesn't seem much to it apart from the avatar awards you get from just loading it up \o/

    You also get a 343 Guilty Spark Monitor lookalike :D
