Crackdown Includes Halo 3 Beta - It's Official

Well it's official ... after months of speculation about how to get into the Halo 3 beta program, and then the black hole signup on their website (I call it that because you signed up, and then jumped into a black hole--waiting to here anything). Now, you can get yourself into the Halo 3 beta program by purchasing a copy of Crackdown ... only the first print run will include keys to do so ... others will be SOL and have to wait for the masses to play this monster upcoming game.

The good thing is that Crackdown looks like it's going to be a good game, and it should be -- it's coming from the mastermind, David Jones, behind the original Grand Theft Auto and -- surprisngly perhaps -- the cute Lemmings title that won numerous awards in the 90's. I've seen some initial footage of this game and it looks pretty interesting ... it's more of a 3-D free form playing game than ever so we'll see how this all pans out when it releases on February 20.
