If you own an Xbox 360, but haven’t started playing the “Halo: Reach” multiplayer beta, then either you’re a very busy person or a very stupid person. WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!
Go stab guys in the back!
Use a Jet-Pack!
Ok, so maybe you avoid that last one. Anyways, if you’re interested, but don’t have a beta code, you can still get one by buying a copy of “Halo: ODST.” The Halo: Reach beta starts today and ends on May 19th. The full game will be released some time next fall.
Microsoft is shutting down the servers supporting all original Xbox games on April 15’th. While this won’t affect all that many people, there is a small contingency of players who still regularly play Halo 2 online. Microsoft, hoping to ease their transition and massage their potential outrage, will be giving those players a free 3-month gold membership on Xbox Live, 400 Microsoft Points and invitations to the Halo: Reach beta, which begins less than a month later on May 3’rd. Getting access to the beta is as simple as buying a copy of Halo: ODST, but the idea here is that these guys have no interest in the game, I suppose.
