Halo 3 multiplayer update

Halo 3 multiplayer update 50°
386w ago - Bungie has released a patch today for Halo 3 on Xbox360. Below is a list of the latest features.

Big Team Battle matches are now 16-player affairs.
In the Team Slayer playlist, the appearance of Shotty Snipers has been greatly reduced.
Now, when players veto Shotty Snipers, the game that results from the veto will not be Shotty Snipers.
In one-sided VIP matches, the attacking team will now see a waypoint for the VIP they are hunting.
In Lone Wolves, Slayer gametypes will appear more frequently.

Good, I was getting very sick of shotty snipers.

Halo 3 Game Freezing Issues

Halo 3 Game Freezing Issues 50°
387w ago - Literally hundreds of people have been posting in two forum threads at both the Bungie and Xbox sites saying that they are having serious problems with disc reading errors and Halo 3. The issue appears to happen for various people at different places in the game, and is not related to whether the disc is scratched or not. User Muffy had the following to say on the Bungie forums:

I'm on my 3rd copy of Halo 3 - after the 2nd Limited copy was found to be scratched I upgraded to Legendary hoping the REAL DVD CASE you get when you by the "PLASTIC EDITION" (PE) would yield a clean disk - and it did - the surface is perfect.

But... I'm still getting read error intermittently at various points in Solo or Campaign - usually when I reboot I can get by the read error and continue on. This is happening on a spanking new 360 Elite - 4 days old.

So the read error are not necessarily always related to a scratch... Might be just really poor reproduction. I wonder if a DVD utility would tell us what rate they burned it at... Maybe they cooked them too quickly.

BattleAxe77 had the following to say on the Xbox.com forums:

My original copy of the Halo LE was scratched and after playing for awhile I got the Disc error message. I called the store...

388w ago - Gamers across Europe got their hands on Halo 3 at midnight on Tuesday, one of the most anticipated and heavily marketed titles in history.

Microsoft hopes day one sales will top £70m ($140m), more than the opening takings of any movie in history.

Xbox 360: PAL Halo 3 Legendary Editions screwed?

Xbox 360: PAL Halo 3 Legendary Editions screwed? 50°
388w ago - Do you live in a PAL territory? Did you somehow manage to get your hands on a Legendary Edition? Looking forward to prising it from it's virginal packaging?

If you were particularly lucky, some of you had your Legendary editions delivered to an address of your choice today. Perhaps the rest of us receiving our own tomorrow should be a bit more nervous about taking a peek inside that box.

Of those who received theirs today - some are speaking of a mysterious second disk, a complete second Halo 3 game DVD. Great you think? Not really... The extra copy of the game takes the space where the additional 'special' edition stuff should be. No calibration tool, no HD Cinematics and no Day in the life of Bungie to be found.

Could this be a widespread problem with PAL versions? Very possibly... Keeping in mind the limited number of people actually receiving theirs today, seeing this issue being raised by various people over a number of gaming forums is somewhat troubling. More so with the recent news that many disks within the special edition packaging are ending up scratched and at worst, unplayable.

We are seeking further information on this potential disaster from some of the folks affected and will update this post as soon as we have something concrete.
