They have a tendency to shut down game servers several years after the fact. Halo 3 still has a couple thousand players on it, but MS will shut it down sooner or later. Which is a shame because they are classics. Considering they are peer to peer gameplay anyway, its a bad practice.

Another concern is that STEAM is a piece of software. It isn't hardware. I don't understand your reasoning behind how Xbox One is an optional 'service' when it is hardware because thats the entire point of the consoles. You need the hardware to play console games, it isn't optional.
There are no other options on how to obtain Halo 56 yet alone, say on the PC, you can purchase physical or digital or digital from STEAM or digital from elsewhere.

There are significant differences in terms of perceiving what you may or may not own when it comes to discerning between buying a console and buying a license on STEAM. Not to mention, the whole purpose of the consoles was to circumvent having to always be online or downloading games. Its great to have as an option, but Sony has the right idea of keeping all options open.

There are a whole laundry list of issues. Considering MS has reversed their standing, its not worth diving any more into.
But, I must add, that stable internet connection has very little to do with it. As someone who is in a very high tier rate of internet, there is a ton of down time. Especially with the whacky weather going on lately. And it doesn't necessarily have to do with providers, as the NYC area has been spoty for pretty much everyone I know as of late.
