        I’m sorry but I’m done trying to explain this to people. There’s a reddit on this subject with thousands of members/posts. Feel free to check it out. The general Xbox user is either incredibly naive, or delusional when it comes to this game and I don’t understand. I love Xbox, but this is not excusable. The best thing to do would have been to fix it, and sweep it under the rug and never talk about it again. Instead they are releasing bundles.

        go there now and you’ll see that almost no one complains of finding matches with parties. the only complaints are ranks and you can take that however you want, but I see it as at least some semblance of proof that matchmaking, for the most part, is fixed.

        Yeah the entire first and second page don’t have any complaints about matchmaking at all. Agreed there was issues in the past but you need to accept that they are basically resolved and move on. Maybe someones router configuration is bad, there are many other possibilities. You sound like someone that clings onto the iPhone Antennagate issues that keeps repeating the same thing over and over when it’s not even a think anymore.

    Like

    • Thomas

      They probably signed a deal with Ubisoft to bundle AC months in advance. As for bundling MCC during the holidays, the game was a mess when it launched. Why would you want to piss off your customers by giving them a broken game? All you’re doing is killing what little goodwill you have left.

        AC Unity was a mess as well and still is in some aspects.
        MS should release more diverse bundles instead of focussing on a few and bundle planning would have been done way in advance, before they even knew the game turned into a bugfest. If they don’t bundle Halo 5 or Forza 6 this year because there’s only a ROTTR one, then MS is insane.

        Like

      • Thomas

        I think they’re more likely to bundle games from 3rd parties that aren’t quite guaranteed sellers. Things like Halo 5 and Forza 6 would sell regardless of whether they were bundled or not, same reason why Sony never bundles Uncharted or God of War games. Sunset Overdrive had limited appeal to most consumers, and I think Unity would not have sold as well as past titles given the dark cloud surrounding it leading up to launch. If I was a betting man, I’d predict that Tomb Raider is the most likely bundle candidate (other than another AC game), since Microsoft needs to take advantage of their timed exclusivity.

        To each their own. I feel Halo single player requires more player choice and decisions, specifically around which weapons you want to carry and how that changes the way you approach each battle. CoD single player feels like a scripted set of events that you shoot your way through. I prefer the Halo approach, sounds like you don’t.

        Halo’s singleplayer campaign becomes repetitive, familiar and boring really fast and it feels like i have been killing the same grunt with the same unsatisfying weapons that make laser/ rays sounds for over a decade. call of duty on the other hand knows how to make the campaign personal, explosive , stabby and most of all make a gun shoot right. with halo, i am droopy. but with Cod, I ‘M A LEAD FARMER, MOTHER#!$%*$!

      “I hope it’s close, but something tells me it isn’t.”

      It isn’t. You will see some BS about PS4 in more markets but that makes such a small difference because all the big markets are covered. And head to head in almost all of those the PS4 is doing better, much better in some. The only thing those other markets would do is slow the gap growth. The only thing that concerns me with sales are the games. If devs/pubs opt PS4 more often and I miss out with the One (I have PS4 consoles but prefer the One’s) on some games then that is the only way if sort of effects me. Would be a bigger issue for people with only the One.

      “I have a sinking feeling that the xbox ones sales have stalled again.”

      That could be the reason for this bundle but maybe not. I think that MS is going to keep bundles with games coming for added value. I also feel we would have seen this soon had the game launched better. I have it and played a little. Both online and SP had issues for me and I finally quit playing. Have not went back yet.
