Yeah, a lot of people here aren't getting the point. If I wanted to waste $60 on Live, I could waste $60 on Live.
But this isn't about being able to afford Live or not. It's about being able to enjoy a game mode without being connected at all.
I don't want or need to play Spartan Ops online. I do want to play FireFight with friends and family via local splitscreen or local System Link. And that's all I'm wanting from Spartan Ops. They ability to play it offline via splitscreen or System Link with family and friends.
And it's not like Spartan Ops really needs the online-only component. It's not a mmog. It's basically just FireFight with story and cut-scenes.
Campaign is offline, War Games is offline, why can't Spartan Ops be offline capable too?
Lol, as if anyone would pay for the mediocrity that is spartan ops on a standalone disc. Especially those without live. Have you ever played SpOps solo?It's about as fun as banging your head against cement for an hour.
#1 This thread is proof that at least someone would. I didn't make the thread, and I would as well, so there goes your theory about who would want it.
#2 Who said anything about either a purchase or a physical disc? Make it freely available to Halo 4 owners as a download to keep on the HDD.
#3 There's this thing on Xbox 360 known as "local multiplayer". I can invite friends over and play Halo multiplayer without the use of XBL Gold.
