After all the months of hype and anticipation, the Halo 3
beta has finally gone live, except for all those people who thought buying Crackdown would get them access.
Bungie has posted on its website, ?Folks are reporting problems downloading the Halo 3 Beta via Crackdown this morning. We have alerted the appropriate Live authorities and they are taking care of the problem as we speak. More news as it comes in.
?With any luck this will be a short delay. People enetering the Beta through other methods - Friends and Family, Rule of Three and so on, are unaffected.?
As gamers attempt to access the beta through Crackdown
they're finding the download greyed out with a suggestion that that they check back later.
The beta should have gone live at 1pm today.
It's a bitter pill to swallow for all the Halo
fans out there who rushed out to buy a copy of Crackdown
solely for the beta access. SPOnG thinks it serves them right for treating what's actually a pretty decent game in its own right
like a cheap whore.
