View Full Version : Rumor: Dashboard Clan Support Before Halo 3?

The Pants Party
09-15-2007, 06:23 AM
An eagle-eyed Xbox Live user over at MEGATONik noticed that under the online description for Halo 3 through the dashboard, it mentions clan support. Whether this is a mistake or a sign that our fall dashboard update might hit before Halo 3 comes out on the 25th is yet to be seen. Since clan support will not be built into Halo 3 itself, the feature would need to be built right into the dashboard and would presumable work for every game that has online play. Only time will tell, but it sure gives me some hope.


Thanks to "zizzy" at [MEGATONik (http://www.megatonik.com/2007/09/14/clans-coming-to-xbox-live-soon/)] for the tip.

There had previously been rumors of clan support in the fall update anyway, so this only furthers the notion that they will be included. An anonymous user on the xbox.com forums posted a list of what he said would be included, clans being on the list. There was also further posted some pictures of the supposed clan blade on the dashboard, though the pictures don't look authentic to me.

Take a look for yourself at the list and pics here (http://www.xbox360rally.com/fall-dashboard-update-list-leaked/).

Wow that would be pretty cool. Does that mean the possibility of Gears of War clans also?

this is cool i wonder if this will happen any time soon

The idea was inevitable. I think last year, they were showcasing Windows Live and there was a clan thing for a custom game that involved cows.

Anyway, I'm gald they're placing this sooner than I thought they would.

Wow I really hope this works.

Maybe this will eliminate duplicate clan names and duplicate clan tags. :woop:

My fingers are crossed .. i'm not a part of any clans for 360 games but i'm in a clan that plays on UT 99 , i hope to see clans for H3 its gonna be the biggest multiplayer game this year so if it does not support clans then its gonna be missing a key part of online gaming.

That would be SWEET.

Dashboard clan support? Awesome.

No because it says ranked. Gears doesn't even let you play with friends what makes you think they will let you play with your clan?

I think that this update will be wicked sweet, hopefully they really do come out with it some time soon.

Pants, you just made my life. You complete me. I really hope they integrate something along these lines, thus I dont have to change my gamer tag to add some clan tag.

This would be a great feature but only time will tell. Nice find pants! ;)

this looks absolutly sweeeeeet!!

09-15-2007, 09:51 PM
The Clan Support is bound to come, but I don't know if this will happen before Halo 3, It should have been the other day when LIVE went down, twice in one month is not minimal as possible from what MS want really, Don't get me wrong! I would love to see this ASAP but meh.

09-15-2007, 10:02 PM
it might have something to do with something for the dashboard that is exclusively for Halo 3.

It wont be exclusive for Halo, if it is, that is unfair! I really want a darn browser, that is the key to Wii's success!

09-15-2007, 10:07 PM
None of this would be exclusive to Halo 3, if it was you would see Halo 3 in the background of those clan menu pictures, other games would not let you access them, this will turn out to be a full dashboard update, Halo 3 will not be required.

this looks absolutly sweeeeeet!!

yeup what he said! :drunk:woop:

09-15-2007, 10:44 PM
i cant wait for halo!!! 9 more days

09-15-2007, 11:48 PM
Yes, I heard of much speculation but these photos look pretty promising. Good find. I just wish it came out a bit earlier to compensate for games such as GOW, CoD3 and the GRAW series.

This would be a great idea but those photos do look a little suspect....

Wouldn't they have announced when xbl would be down already. Since it would be within the next two weeks?

Read before posting. it is taken right from the dashboard. You would know that if you read the first sentence...

09-17-2007, 06:20 AM
this might be one of the greatest ideas ever.. clans are the best part of online play and now it might actually mean something to have a good team

09-22-2007, 09:22 PM
No its not real . Because look at the halo 3 Ads Now and the CLans part is gone

ok i found some "official info" over on majornelson and this is not the dashboard update .. and i quote "the only thing this minor release will do is prepare your Xbox 360 for the Big Button Pad that is being released this holiday" which is the big pad that will be released with the Scene It game .. so looks like where in for a treat sometime .. i hate when they fake ya out like that !

Here is the official thread (http://www.majornelson.com/archive/2007/09/20/xbox-360-system-update-september-07.aspx) on majornelson.

Ok, this thread has nothing to do with the update that was released this past week. The update this thread is based on would probably be in the fall update which no release date has been announced yet. When the official fall update hits you'll know about it a few days beforehand and it will take a lot longer to download than the minor ones.

I think though the dashboard update will happen after Halo 3 because i can't imagine it before with two days until it comes out but proberbly a week later at most we will see. But then it could happen to tomorrow
