na its probably because the 360 came out and they wanted to improve their xbox live on the 360 lets they bring xbox live back

when they decided they were going to get rid of it I was rather dissapointed

Oh, I wish we could still play Halo 2.

Screw Off you Benidict Assface!!

Such a shame, I never got to play the game once online, plus I wanted the dlc maps as well that are NOT on the dlc disc. Oh well, we still have 3, Reach and XBC to get our Halo fix.

My Halo 3 service record has several things that are incorrect. My KD is above 1.0 in both ranked and social, and I am a much higher rank. Also I have several perfections and my "player since" date is wrong because I have had Halo 3 since the launch date in 2007 (september 25 I think).

WE NEED TO GET THIS GAME BACK UPPP! i heard that sony and microsoft made an agreement. sony would let microsoft sell their number one seller (call of duty) in exchange for microsoft letting sony sell their halo games. IF this is really true, PS3/PSN and XBOX 360 Live should deff bring halo 2 back!! it was so much fun! and i guarantee it'll be big again..alot of people want the online experience once again =]

there needs to be a poll to see how many people would play halo 2 often again if it came to PSN and XBOX 360 Live!!

Brown chicken, brown cow!!!!

A buddy of mine and I were discussing the other day how much we missed Halo 2. No other game can ever bring back the sheer awesomness of playing Halo 2 online. From the friends made to the greatness of the maps. Really, really wish they would bring it back.

Straight Edge.

Bring back Halo 2!

and all the original Xbox games

this really suck cause in the last year ive really got into halo and really wanted to crank out all the games and get on live with them. you know get a complete service record.. i say bunjie should do a quick remake of halo 2 purely for the die hards and for the livleyness :D dreams are free

  • 01.20.2012 2:35 AM PDT

bring halo 2 back

  • 01.25.2012 11:13 AM PDT

O hai

i want it back too :(

  • 01.25.2012 3:44 PM PDT

Why don't you guys just play on Xbox Connect?

  • 01.25.2012 6:46 PM PDT

Because it's hard to find games with decent servers on xbc... Most of them are Colombian... Microsoft should be ashamed of themselves for denying service of the game that created and defined their online existence. If not for halo 2 online, xbl would not have been half as popular as it was. Halo 2 still holds the record for most consistently played online game. It held the top spot for years. Even after the 360 was released and the "next gen" games were out halo 2 still held the top spot for some time. I find it frustrating that I get no enjoyment for any period of time with any game currently out right now. Yeah, Reach, the COD franchise, Gears, ect... Are great games but there is not a single one that holds anyone's attention for any significant amount of time. I still play halo 2 even though it was realeased in 2004. There are thousands of people that would still play it... But I bet you won't find more than 100 people that still play cod2... Or halo 3.... The question I have to ask is... Microsoft.. Is a bigger friends list(that still has not happened because it's completely illogical) more important than the game that created your service? I don't think so.. And I think a great deal of the halo 2 fan base would agree. And to be completely honest I liked the old halo 2 friends list, and clan list better anyways...

I'm having a Halo 2 LAN in two weeks. I haven't been this excited to play a game since the last time I played Halo 2. Is there any possible way Halo 2 servers get put back online? (Wishful thinking, I know)

  • 02.06.2012 2:45 PM PDT

Play Halo 2 Vista and plug in a 360 controller.
There are LIVE servers that are online on there.

However, that's assuming that you can run it.

I really miss playing you online Halo 2. I popped in my Halo 2 disc in my 360 a couple days ago and i have to tell you its sad and lonely on the maps with no one to play with online :( I hope you get re-released on the 360 soon.
