As stated in the news area of the site, all you have to do is drop your thoughts on the beta. I unfortunatly didn't have a chance to experience it first hand. But I know you guys were able to take videos, and spent a great deal of time playing.

What better place to talk amoungst yourselfs about your impressions, brag/show off your 733t skills.

Best part you can win a Xcm Xfps 360 Pro.

Would love to see some of you that normally wouldn't join the forums, stop by and see what it is we have to offer here at 360-hq. No flaming we answer all questions to the best of our knowledge. Or admin team is great. Don't take my word for it just stick around and see.

So go ahead and post your thoughts and see just how great/bad the beta was.

I highly encourage our existing members to participate as well. The more the marrier. In the end this helps bring in users that normally wouldn't take the time to sign up for our forums. Trust me guys these forums are a great break from the ones most of you are used to. We dont flame, nor tollerate any type of conduct along those lines.

So is the news submission contest still going on for the XFPS Pro? (Probally not since me & predatech were the only ones) But who knows there could still be some peeps out there that will enter.

ill shoot out an opinion:

first off, ill say that i thoroughly enjoyed the demo and i think its a major upgrade from halo 2 as halo 2 was from halo 1. of course, the graphics are nice, since its on a next gen console, but i want to be honest, they werent overwhelming...i think graw2 and gears of war look better graphically. saying that, they arent shabby...huge jump from halo 2 for sure though. i think the games aiming system feels a bit more like halo 1, which i like, because it seperates skill better like that. halo 2, in my opinion, had too much aim assist. that compensated for less-skilled players and evened out the games more. initially i didnt like how the reload buttons and pickup weapon buttons were moved to the bumpers, but after playing just for a small while...it works out for the better. what i dont want to see is bungie making halo overboard with all the features and options while playing. now you can rip turrets off, there are a couple of guns that put you in 3rd person, there are more button combinations for doing things (dual wielding, etc...) and i think initially what grabbed people was how simple halo was to play with halo 1, it was easy to learn and master, but i think, in my opinion, they are stretching that now. i just think it turns away people who dont like to learn all the button mashing combinations of learning a game. overall, though i loved the demo and i cant wait till it comes out. i hear there are going to be many options (most of by which we only usually get to experience through modding the game), but will be included in the retail halo 3 game, and i like how it saves the game now to where you can go back and watch it from different camera views. i think it will be the best, most played multiplayer game on a console because bungie always offers the most options, best physics, and constructed arenas. if i had to just base the multiplayer on the demo id give it a 9 out of 10, and that was a dwindled down version. the retail will have much more.

thats my take.

Being a halo freak i actually went and bought a 360 console just for the beta halo release and crackdown.In my opinion it was great with new weapons and acc. along with some great maps made for an enjoyable playin experience.Sure there is room for improvement but that was what the beta was for wasnt it??Wait'n for a game is always a bore.....One feature is the game video save which i think is awsome and bound to creep in to utube's space...Great to watch those lads who slay you and there warcracft techniques then re-apply back to them next match...hehehehe....Bungie will surely improve on the beta release and produce one of the most memorable games of all time......I just pre ordered my legendary collecters edition copy with the spartan helmet so roll on sept 25....WOOT..WOOT..WOOT...WOOT... Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
