Halo 3 Beta Via Crackdown Not For Core Owners
Date: Sunday, January 07 @ 07:21:53 UTC
Sorry, Core Pack Xbox 360 owners, but you really should have known better. Those of you sporting an Xbox 360 sans hard drive are going to be, unsurprisingly, shut out of the Halo 3 beta if you purchase your copy of Crackdown hoping to secure a spot. We're basing that on the new boxart for the North American release of Crackdown, courtesy of this week's Bungie update.
Sure, you can go out and buy that hard drive now, but for those of you leaning toward purchasing the oft-slighted "'tard pack" to get your Halo 3 fix, just don't do it.
Some brief clarification on just how this works was also given:
Basically, if you buy a specially marked copy of Crackdown for Xbox 360, in the US (details for other regions will be decided by those territories) then you will receive some kind of code allowing you to play in the Halo 3 Beta.
Got it! But why Crackdown? You'll have to head to Bungie for the answer. Michael McWhertor
