For all of you crazies who think you’re just going to get your friend to buy you a copy of Crackdown from the Microsoft store, or for those who think they don’t need to preorder because they’ll be able to pick it up on launch day… here’s where I laugh in your face:
The Halo 3 Beta is time sensitive. Even though there might be a code in your box, that doesn’t mean you get to play. Only the first (unspecified number) of people to activate the code will be able to participate….. and enough copies are already reserved to fulfill the quota.
My Gamestop is doing a midnight launch, as are a few others. Reserve Crackdown while you still can if you really want to play the Beta. Otherwise, you’ll probably be screwed and I will point my finger and laugh at you!
