January 24, 2007 - Millions want a chance to play Halo 3 online prior to its release, which has lead to some stressful nights for fans. With limited openings in the Internet lottery and Xbox Live competition, most gamers must rely on receiving the golden ticket that comes with a retail copy Crackdown. Some have mistakenly been lead to believe that only a select number of copies of Crackdown will contain Halo3 beta invites. This is not true.

A Microsoft representative confirmed to IGN that every copy of Crackdown includes an invite to the Halo 3 beta. If you want in on the beta (and didn't earn an invite by other means), purchase a copy of Crackdown on February 20 and you'll be set. You can even purchase a copy on February 21 or even March 15 and still be in the clear. Oh, and you'll get a copy of Crackdown to boot. Sweet!

I'm positive that this game will be amazing at it's full version.... the demo was amazing and hopefully the demo to the demo of halo 3's multiplayer will also be good although nobody is guarantied a beta key to download it from the marketplace since I've already asked the EB Games guy and he's telling me that only the first shipment will have them so how is it that every copy can also have it? But crackdown is good and so is Halo 3 so I'm happy if I get either one and even happier if I got both! happy.gif

Well, my reserved copy had the "Includes Halo 3 Beta Invite" sticker, while the store floor copy was lacking.

I'm sorry but I hope they all do NOT include it. We don't need all the timmies from XBL on H2 getting in there and upsetting everyone right away on the beta. Just my 2 cents.

Uhhh, no. Everyone with Crackdown will be able to play the Halo 3 MP beta. MS can't go "Hey, buy this game you get to try Halo 3!" and then say "Nah, we were just kidding. HAHA LOSER"

So everyone with Crackdown will be able to play the Halo 3 MP beta.

Well, everyone with one of the "beta included" copies will get in. There will be copies sold without a beta invite, but the ones with the invite are clearly labeled.

there is no difference, MS and/or Bungie said every copy of Crackdown will be able to play Halo 3 demo. There is no difference of info on the disc.

Er, that's not what Bungie's initial Weekly Update on getting into the beta said. They said only the first batch of Crackdown discs plus a couple in the second shipment would be able to play the beta. Where did you hear that?
