Beta(buy) – The Halo 3 Scandal

As you should all be aware by now, a number of European websites within Microsoft’s XCN have gotten their hands on a bunch of Halo 3 beta slots to give away over the Christmas period – and have been doing so.

Recently however, due to the incredible demand for such a coveted spot in the Halo beta test, some sites have been attempting to sell the codes to make a quick buck at Christmas from desperate fans.

Naturally, the big M weren’t impressed, and sent this warning out to all members of the XCN stating:

“If your site is found to be one of the offenders you will not receive any beta codes and will be removed from the XCN with immediate effect”

They also go on to threaten,

“We will also ensure that Microsoft will no longer have any involvement with your site.”

Strong stuff indeed – and rightly so. Bungie and Microsoft have stated numerous times that this is merely the first step at getting a place on the beta. The first step.


Infact, we have it on good authority that odds are if you want to get involved in the beta test, you will be able to. Expect further announcements over the coming months…

So, you may not be able to buy your way into the test, but I’m interested as to what lengths you would actually go to to get a slice of the Halo 3 pie?

Personally, I’d get a Halo tattoo… oh wait, I already have. Come on then Bungie, whadd’ya say… am I in or what?
