A new Halo 3 movie is giving us a sneaky glimpse of the Epitaph and Last Resort multiplayer levels that are being included in the game.
Available right under this story, the footage reportedly comes from an interview with Bungie conducted by a Dutch videogame show called Gamekings.

It's hard imagine, but next weekend we'll no longer be able to play the Halo 3 mutliplayer beta. For us, it means certain members of the team will be able to get some work done, but for everyone else the long wait for September 26 begins.

In Bungie's weekly report, Frankie has listed their top ten Halo 3 Beta bad habits - some of which feel strangely familiar, especially number 10... someone *always* steals our kills. We've yet to try playing while on the John though, so not guilty there.

That's right, it's great news for the people who are bored with the default matchmaking for the Halo 3 beta (bored? really?). Although who knows how long it will last, beta players have discovered a way to bypass the limitations on custom games currently imposed and get a bigger taste of the options that will be available for the final version of Halo 3.

Is Haze a PlayStation 3 exclusive, or not? That's the question that has puzzled the internet over the last week, with confusion obviously over whether Free Radical's challenging blastathon will make it to Xbox 360 or PC. For the definitive answer, GamesRadar tracked down publisher Ubisoft for an official response. Here's what it told us:

Since the multiplayer beta went live two weeks ago there's been a bit of a debate surrounding Halo 3's visuals. Some say it looks great, while others believe it poos the bed in comparison to Gears of War.
Hearing our cries, Bungie's Frank O'Connor assures Next-Gen.biz that there are plenty of changes coming in the months until the final game arrives in September.
