* Halo2 hitting ISPs hard

Xbox/Xbox Games
Totalvideogames has word that Halo2's network traffic is hitting some ISP's pretty hard.

Announcing the news, Marc Morin, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer of Sandvine Incorporated said, ?The explosion in Xbox Live traffic attributed to Halo 2 should be seen as a clarion call?Service Providers need to enhance the broadband experience for these high-end users by prioritizing or reserving bandwidth for games and other kinds of latency-sensitive and feature-rich applications.?
It's no surprise... the more mainstream the games get, the more we're going to need that bandwidth.

To me the shocking thing is that it's taken this long to happen.
