Help Haiti by Playing Halo

I do not have an XBox 360, but Halo's developers have certainly gone up in my estimations now. Kudos Bungie!

They're also donating all profits they recieve from their online store to help Haiti as well. This is actually rather generous of them.

So much for M$, ay?

Sadly this only applies to Bungie items as they recieve no profits from the TV's and 360 games they sell on the store. There is still the very real possibility that Bungie could be donating over $100,000 here though. This is really impressive, especially since the split from MS.

we could just ask Blizzard nicely to rebuild haiti

they are one of the largest economies in the world.

That's a pretty swell thing of them to do.

Hey, I'm entitled to my own opinion.

I was mainly wondering your reasons behind this, I mean, I love halo and everything, but in my eyes thy're not the best ever.

It could be because of one of their earlier games, like Marathon.

I just wiki'd it, and that looks oh-so similar to Halo, although I haven't actually played it.

It's free and probably worth a look.

this is a great idea! i already donated but a little more wouldn't hurt...

I hope a PS3 developer does something similar. Or DICE I could save by playing 1943.

Games devs are quick off the mark as iPhone developers are donating too.

I'm surprised no other game developers have jumped in on this, this is a really great cause and I'm glad to see Bungie taking the lead on this, I hope more game developers get in on this.

Haiti was a dying place before the quake and suddenly it happens, and the world is is rushing to its aid. I am aware of the UN missions, I just didn't see a lot of coverage on it as I saw on the earthquake. Fuck you people acting like you give a shit just because some people ACTUALLY do. Either way its just another dying country, boohoo.

Well I'm gonna take part in it. I also picked up one of the shirts on Bungie that gets the money donated as well. But don't spend too much time looking at their forums...

Just wandering around them (particularly the Halo 3 forum) you can tell what kind of people on the site Bungie has to put up with in order to interact with their community as much as they do.

EDIT: I am ashamed to have my comment in this kind of close proximity to the one above it.

haha I guess I should start playing HALO 3 again

ahhh buga my XBL account has run out :(

Aura Guardian:

It's been a while since I played Halo 3. But I know it'll be a blast.

-10 or so Halo haters I guess?

OT: I do have alot of money ( for my age ) so I might if I can. I live in New Zealand so it might be a fraction harder

Sorry other people care to help others in time of peril. We should be ashamed of ourselves...

OT: If I wasn't sick, I would be playing right now. Once I get better, I will change my emblem immediately.

You can like studios for other reasons besides games. I just like how well they treat their fans and how down to earth they are. They really love their community and interact with it.

Fair enough, I don't actually have a favourite game studio, so I can't really talk.

Well that's nice, Valve is still my favorite company but Bungie has just moved to #2!!!
Time to dust off Halo 3 and give it a spin.

Well isn't that nice of bungiee shame I do not play Halo 3 becuase I do not like it.

Well we're sorry for wanting to help a poor country, that has just been hit by a 7.5 earthquake, and now more are dying. We should have each other whipped.

Great cause. Count me and as many friends as I can rangle up in.

It's so crazy it just might work. As soon as we admit that blizzard is the supreme overlord of video gaming.

Im glad to see another pleasent chap on this forum. Care to go kitten punting tommarow? Seriously dude why are being angry, even false helping is still I dunno HELPING just because people don't really care who gives two shits? Manipulate the stupid sheep for good and all is well. Just need the smart sheep to weed out the good shepards and the bad ones. Dying country or not people need help and help needs to be given.

Cool, I'll be sure to tell all of my friends who don't visit this site.

I just got the game and have been playing through it on Legendary with co-op, so this is quite convenient.

Scumpernickle:
Well this is ironic, kill people to save people.

I've already donated $4, but $4.10 couldn't hurt.

Heh heh.

no, they would make us stop bitching after 50 years when Haiti would be the number one world super power

Blizzard already knows that it is the supreme overlord of videogaming.
the question is, are all the halo tards willing to bow before their hyper-evolved Protoss motherships, zerg overlords, terran battle cruisers, and dark gods?

Not to be a dick but... 77,000? Couldn't you just DONATE that without trying to profit from it by getting people to play?

is it ONLY up to 77,000? cause ALOT more people will be playing then that

Logan Westbrook:
this coming Wednesday of Thursday.

fix please

They are trying to get the gaming community involved. The amount of money they donate goes to show how much people care and how they want to help.

They know, they just want to hear us say it.

Teiraa:

Theyre being nice, they still like to have money and eat once and a while you know.

This is awesome. I only wonder how long it will take for them to max out the donation? Let all of your friends know and don't forgot to play Halo that day.

I can't believe everyone has just eaten up this PR stunt...

factualsquirrel:
Wait, is it ODST or halo 3?

'cos I want to do it, but I don't know which game.

both i will try to be on 24 hours for this.
