Sign up for the Halo 3 beta on 12/4!

Surprise, surprise! Microsoft has announced that they will be accepting signups for the upcoming Halo 3 beta (due in Spring 2007) this Monday, December 4th. The beta will be available to gamers in North America worldwide, and only a select amount of registrants will be accepted.

From GamerscoreBlog

The Xbox Live multiplayer public beta, which is a pre-release version of the multiplayer experience of “Halo 3,” is scheduled for availability in spring 2007 exclusively on Xbox 360. This beta also represents an opportunity for gamers to participate in the development of “Halo 3.” Through the resulting feedback, Bungie Studios will be able to further refine and hone the end result of “Halo 3.”

    So wait… you’ll have to register on Monday and then they will send the file over xbl to all the people that register or what? Is it gonna be hard to be on the list of people getting it??

  2. QualityJeverage says:

    Basically, just try on Monday. Also, singing up doesn’t mean you get to play on Monday.

    The Beta doesn’t actually start until Spring, these are just sign-ups. Still, you can bet I’ll be here at my computer in my underwear at 12:00 on Monday.

    A couple questions….

    Are there any restrictions?
    How do you get it?
    Is there a limit?
    My friend wants to sign up but he won’t get a 360 until christmas. Can he still sign up?

  4. Painkilla05 says:

    I need to get a 360 this weekend.

  5. Killazilla says:

    North America FTW!

    Does any body know what time you can sign up on Dec. 4??

  8. xl Ac3 Ix says: just brings me to tho. On monday will it bring me somewhere else?

  9. CapnKrunk says:

    I wouldn’t assume it’s going to be first-come, first-serve with the signups. If you think about it, Bungie would probably like to get a wide variety of players from different areas of the country (or continent, rather), and taking the first people on the East coast sign up at midnight wouldn’t be a good way to do that.

    Yes, I’m sure will look very different on 12/4, so be sure to check back then.

    They also said that it will be available to those outside the US as well. A quote from the latest news on

    “We also made mention of the Halo 3 Beta (coming some time in 2007) and folks panicked when they saw that a press release mentioned only the US. [b]Don’t panic. The Halo 3 Beta will be available in the US, Europe and elsewhere in the world.[/b] We’ll keep you updated on the detailed specifics as they come in.”

    well all i have to say is
    any one on Podtacular that gets this better record footage and post the holiness!!!

  12. NamesTwister says:

    I am definitely going to beg my parents to let me stay up for this. And if they don’t let me, I’ll just have to sneak out of my room at midnight and register, lol.

  13. Elaborate Toast says:

    I’m waking up at 12AM on Monday, not going to school, and I AM GETTING THIS BETA!!!

  14. Xx Masta Sam says:

    i assume they will mail you the disk in a few months. plus MAKE SURE YOU PUT YOUR AGE ABOVE 18, it never hurts to be on the safe side

  15. Infektion X says:

    remember guys, its coming out in the springtime.

  16. MadGecko says:

    make sure to put your [b]actual age[/b], if they ask. there is a reason these games are rated what they are. self cencorship is a great priveldge that this country can afford… having the government step in would be desasterous *cough*HillaryClinton*cough*. if being under 18 means that you are not able to participate in this beta, then i hope you will do the right thing and tell the truth, even if halo is your entire life… which it shouldnt be anyway

  17. Algebra Cow says:

    who isn’t signing up

  18. Stooch says:

    I’m praying on my knees here and now that I get a spot.

  19. License 2 ill says:

    well if you aren’t old enough to play the beta, then why is it alright to play halo 2…….and there is no need to add politics to this

  20. Mr 0uch says:
