Yeah it is pretty good if you like those types of games. Its one of my favourites:)

I'm supposed to be getting an invite to the beta from Microsoft but I haven't had an email or anything yet..
Not that fussed but will check it out if I do get an invite in the end.

Going to play it but not overely excited. Halo has never kept as good as COD, gets old quick imo. Reach looks a step in the right direction at least. Anyone know the time it is released ?

Edit : 2AM Pacific time (evening time here not sure of the exact time), wondered whether it was worth looking now. Wouldn't be suprised if xbox servers start lagging on release

halo 3 has been ruined by stupid american kids who take it way too seriously "ahahahdauheuahe lOlOLOLOl i out br'd you HHAHhahloloLOLOLol" yeah ok nice one you tool

I remember buying crackdown for the Halo 3 beta, only to get bored with the beta and found I had bought an amazingly addictive game that I still play to date.

But no, I ain't got ODST/rbeta but REACH seems a step forward, graphical-wise

Reach looks exactly the same as all the other Halos except you now have jetpacks. The graphics don't look much better at all. IT'll be like ODST, amazinginly boring. Only the first halo was good.

meh, not a halo fan.

Each to their own i guess. I personally love Halo 3 and have clocked over 4500 games. I didnt like COD multiplayer

Is it out yet?

Yep I've played plenty of games too. I like cod but prefer halo

I've clocked HUNDREDS of hours on Halo 3 (about 5000 games!), and in the last few months, clocked about 200 hours on Call of Duty - I wish I wasn't at work today, because I would be trying to get on the Halo Reach beta!!!

i cant find it..

I've rented out ODST from Blockbuster so I can finish off a couple of achievements and have a go on the beta, but to be honest I'll probably think it's really good as I've not played Halo for quite some time, but then get bored of it fairly quickly lol...

I cant wait to play it. Interesting new multiplayer features such as armour abilities.

Thought it was 6pm ?

Nope, there's never been an exact time stated beyond late morning, PST. They could never, ever get these things out on time if they set a specific time. It'll be there eventually.

Keep a watch on major nelson's twitter, he'll announce when it's out: twitter.com/maj…son

If you want to pass the time, I'm sure the xbox.com forums are full of geeks having fits of rage along the lines of "****ING BUNGIE AND MICROSOFT TAKE THE ****ING **** AND CAN'T DELIVER ANYTHING ON TIME, THEY'VE LOST A CUSTOMER IN ME 4 LYFE".

Also bear in mind that it'll probably take an age to actually download, given that everyone will be absolutely battering the servers all at once in a frenzy!!

Its out now, im downloading it

Oops, that was the problem then.

no doubt about it, halo 3 is best online experience ever. COD is boring. you cant hijack a jeep at full speed and beat the driver out on COD. you cant snipe someone who is flying 100ft in the air out of a man-cannon on COD. And you sure as hell don't get jet packs on COD. Nono, i'll stick with halo, always.

lol, my download stopped at about 41% saying 'unable to download' and had to restart. Now as I'm writing this, I turn around and it's saying 99%!!!! I think XBox Live is a bit confused

COD is a bettter game. You either play COD or Halo as they are so different playing both at the same time makes one seem boring

playing both at the same time is quite a feat!

for me, COD4 is the best solo online game for its freeforalls and left4dead 2 wins in the co-op stakes.

I think borderlands is a much better co-op game although L4D has awesome co-op as well. Agreed COD 4 is best FFA game

borderlands is very good but l4d2 has the replay value, the scavenge levels alone are worth many many hours of play.

cookiemonster83 did you ever get passed 99% mine went to 80% I pressed the xbox button to see who was online and my download stopped, I then tried redownloading and now stuck on 99%

took me less than 20 mins to download it, a few of my mates have been downloading it since 6 and it's still not done

currently on 96%
