    I was wondering if anyone here actually got into the Halo 3 Beta by registering on Bungie.

    I registered when it went live at midnight. I expect to get server delays and page display errors, but lo and also behold I was completely registered by 12:03.

    However, I somehow did not make the cut.
    I got in by buying Crackdown though and it says in the manual that Crackdown is the only place you can access the Halo 3 Beta.
    Granted, they are probably just saying "only" in the sense that for Crackdown purchasers it is the only way.

    Did anyone, or even anyone you know, get in without buying Crackdown?

    I know two. I know one got in through the play for 3 hours thing, the other I really have no idea.

    I didn't get in. I registered as soon as it came online.

    I was thinking that, too.

    Xbox Live is offline for 14 hours on Tuesday and then a surprise announcement that the Halo 3 Beta is live.

    It would be all over teh interwebs.

    Theres been talks that the beta will start late Feb or Early April for the initial sign up and Rule of Three entries and then early May for the Crackdown owners, with the beta being finished at the end of May. More recently they've been expecting the beta to start later rather than sooner though.
