Halo 3 beta reminder: check your Bungie box!

Alright, we take it back. During a little What Are You Playing diatribe this morning, we called all those with early "Friends and Family" access to the Halo 3 beta jerks. It turns out you can stick us in the jerk tank now (well, you can at least stick me in there), because we just found our invite tucked away in our message box. Let this be a reminder to dedicated Halo fans that have not yet done so: check your message box! You might just find a happy little surprise.

Now if you'll excuse us, it's time for some beta mayhem.

[Thanks, Stephen]

17. I didn't get one. Then again, my 360 is currently performing the task of being a $400 paperweight. Gotta wait for the UPS man to bring me the coffin. I got into the beta through phase one too. Sigh...

18. u are all fuc*in retards for u who say that i am in the rule of 3 or what not but havent received the message yet. The rule of three, inaddition to the crackdown game and the first way to get into the beta are all going to be able to play the beta on the 16th. those who get to play on the 11 are strictly friends of bungie or ppl who bungie felt should be able to play early, SO SHUT THE FUC* UP DAMN RETARDS-GET UR FACTS RIGHT BEFORE U BIT*H AND MOAN ABOUT IT
