    I'm afraid i may be the 'one'. On a side note how does this compare to there whining about the volumes of piracy on the PC. Are those "monstrously huge" numbers caused by people with dodgy copies?

    Neither have I, I downloaded the demo and the program wouldn't even start on my PC, and since my pc is massivly out of date I couldn't be bothered to work out why.

    Started playing it the other day. Absolutely amazing!

    Of course, I've just moved from an XP2500 and an FX5600 to a Q6600 and an 8800GTS, so the difference in performance is bound to be huge... Save up the money and get it.

    the new update on Live is kinda cool, bomb kill cams and increased sniper accuracy.
    its great that the maps usually make things pretty even class wise

    Regarding aimboting and general cheating... have they fixed that? Haven't turned on the damn game in over 5 months...

    I play both on console and prefer COD4 far more. Both look totally beautiful, I find Halo has a slow kind of walking through water feel for me, far to dampened to my liking.

    Trouble is though you can`t mute folk the same as Halo something I REALLY like.

    Although not a pile of crap, I do believe Halo is overly overrated. (Can you really fit two in a sentence?)

    I've seen my friend play CoD4, and myself dying for a chance to play it on my own PC. (P4 and 5900Ultra won't cut it). Oh well, 2 more months of over time maybe I can get something in preparation for SC2 and to get on with Crysis.

    Glad to hear CoD4 is doing so well online. I've rarely been able to get into an online shooter game the way I could with CoD4. Guess it's the way it feels. I can actually coordinate with a friend/group in CoD4 and do pretty well off. To me some degree of skill in CoD4 is required instead pray n' spray like some other games (not to knock it, that style does work well in some other titles but not in CoD4).

    Hmmm, I bought this game a few months back after playing MP side of it at a LAN session, but I've yet to get around to playing it since, I must put it on one day. :lol:

    I'm pretty sure CoD4 has been on top of the usage statistics for a couple months now. Does anyone know if the number of unique users includes things like split-screen guests playing on Live? Anywho, I guess it's all a matter of personal preference I personally prefer Halo's multi-player and whether or not you believe the game is 'a pile of crap' or 'overrated' I still think that there's got to be something said for the infrastructure that Bungie has built up around the game.

    It definatley has a wealth of beautiful options that appear to enhance the system no end, replay director and map/ ingame editors appear masterful. I think the fact I never played loads of halo2 alienated me from the start and I never really got anywhere with it (I was crap at it and I mean REALLY crap) which really annoyed me about it to the point I never even got to use these systems.

    I had only played pc multiplayers up to that point and it had me thinking it was me, until I played CoD4 it was like abreath of fresh air. Something I could pick up and play when I couldn`t be arsed booting up the Bf2 or the now love of my life Tf2.

    COD4, overtaking halo as the most overrated game in gaming history, really, same gameplay as 01 cod, with an outdated engine that somehow won best graphcis at e3. Prrof hype and biased sites like IGN and gamespot drive sales. Gee, another small linear level with bad AI, unrealistic weapons that feel like bb guns, endless spawning enemies, and trigger points.

    Not much variety in the way of popular shooters on the 360 to begin with, so CoD4 doesn't have any real competition for the genre. On the other hand, another popular record-breaking shooter from many years ago, Counter-Strike, had to compete with UT2003 and several games based on id's Tech 3 engine: Quake 3 Arena, MoH Allied Assault, Wolfenstein, Elite Force, Double Helix, Jedi Outcast and so forth.
