I thought I would remind/inform/surprise anyone out there who isn't aware, the Halo: Reach Beta (1.15gb) went live just under an hour ago. For those of you who do not know what this means read on: -If you purchased Halo 3: ODST then you were promised an invitation to the Reach beta -If you have your ODST disc then boot it up and now the option to 'Play the beta' will be available from the main menu. -Clicking this option will bring up a dialogue box asking you to confirm downloading the beta and providing a brief description of the content. Warning: Spoilers inside! The beta was available to a select few several days ago (about 10,000 downloaded then) and an estimated few million are expected to download the beta release, which will last from May 3rd to May 19th. With so many downloads at this peak time, even my 10mbp/s fibre optic connection is taking around an hour due to the strain of downloaders. I advise you get yours now You can find out everything you need to know at bungie's forum and Halo: Reach website (google)! Not only is this your opportunity to try the game before the release date but also provide feedback to finetune the game for the final release (Fall 2010) so please be helpful and suggest, find glitches and give ideas at bungie's official website. Ciao.
