Have you got the internet connected to your Xbox 360? If so, i have two relevent answers:

1: Don't press update, i've heard that the update is not a necessity to playing the game.


2: Contact the store that you rented it from or; Contact microsoft and tell them the problem.


If you haven't got the internet connected to your xbox 360 then it WON'T work.

Xbox 360 halo problems

my halo sometimes does the same thing when i start up the game but pressing a usually gets you through it, but if your xbox 360 overheats within minutes and is an older xbox 360 its usually a burnt out fan or just full of dust, if its old then ur warranty might already be out and if it is just open up the xbox and use an air compressor or anything else to get all the dust out of the xbox. in my case everything was just caked with dust. anyways... good luck

Halo Special edition xbox console: Error E74 after update

the odds are very good... The error is caused when there's a problem with video, either because the A/V cable used is broken, or what's even worse, when Ana, the Xbox 360 hardware scaler chip is damaged. Also try this take the AV cable, plug it out and plug it in, if it still doesn't work unplug it, wipe the metal part with a soft cloth then plug it in. That might help.But i bet you will end up sending it off again.

My halo 3 says player failed to load content

hold down the sync button and turn on your xbox (while still holding sync) untill it boots all the way. now goto settings > memory > games > halo 3 and delete all downloadable content and boot halo 3 if you get an update allow it and if everything goes well you should be able to get to campagne and eveything then redownload all downloadable content. some updates mess with the DL content and the holding of the sync while booting clears all failed updates and redownloading should reconfig the files to work wih the update. Hope this helps.

Halo3 freezing before i even start playing

Sorry to say but you need join the que of people frustrated by the problems that Halo 3 suffers on the XBox 360.

Simply search the internet and you will find a plethora of people having the exact same issues.

Some have found that running the Halo 3 update helps, some find it makes things worse. This is a know issue that Microsoft are once again denying and there appears to be a few law suits being attempted.

My suggestion? Return the game tot he store as faulty and buy it for your PC instead. Sorry this is probably not what you want to hear.

Xbox 360/Halo 3 problem

I think thats because of a new update that came with Halo 3, I bought the halo 3 special edition xbox 360 and it came with the update, so I didn't have this problem. I think its the new update from microsoft that is making this issues with the old xbox 360, when the update is corrupted you'll have to format your hard drive and then update again and pray that this time is not corrupted or you'll have to do this again and again, again, again. I think this happen when you have a slow internet connection because when I try to update in the house of my uncle who has a super speed, I never had this problem, also when you have NAT problems, the update can be corrupted.
