Buy Crackdown, play Halo 3

Thursday 4 January 2007
European gamers will be able to take part in the Halo 3 online beta test - simply by buying a copy of upcoming Xbox 360 shooter, Crackdown.

Until now, the opportunity has only been available to US gamers (via an online registration form) who will find out this month if their applications have been successful.

The so-called 'beta test' will be a limited multiplayer version of the game, used by the developer to hone and refine the online experience through feedback from players. Bungie gets a load of free QA support and you get the chance to play Halo 3 months before the rest of the world.
