Is it just me or is Halo becoming Unreal Tournament?

From a post I made in the ODST thread:

Ars Technica did a three-page write-up on their time spent with playing the MP beta for Halo Reach:

I was pumped for it, nut then I played 2 games of Halo 2 (to get whatever item bungie will give for Reach) and my hype was lost. I play too much CoD now. Hardcore on top of that. I will be so out of the feel of Halo that I don't think I'll perform well. I'm gonna give it a go anyway.

They already hooked me on Halo helmets when I got the MARK IV one for cheap, hopefully this will be the second and LAST helmet in my "collection".

I'm excited for this. Didn't play ODST online much due to lack of match making but this should be awesome. Can't wait to try out the new modes (namely Invasion and Head Hunter).

Be sure to preorder the Legendary edition early, it'll sell out in no time. Literally.

wow I really used to be hardcore halo guy since h3 came out,but havent played it at all since I started to really get into MW2 and relize Halo was way to slow and I played it out. Maybe these features will rekindle my love for Halo. Any one else feel this way.

Yeah, I kinda know what you mean. I think that Reach will be a nice break from the fast-paced MW2 and the like though. They are two very different games, Halo has always been slower paced. Looking forward to it.

Just got an e-mail from amazon stating the estimated arrival date of Halo:Reach is Sep.07.2010.
Was this announced or are they just guessing?

With Gold Box and ECA, I already have this down to $45 (+ $20 credit). The other editions will have to bring something monumental for me to upgrade.

Don't know for 100% certainty, but I'm pretty sure I've read the beta would be an option from the ODST single-player disc. And that would make sense, because that is the real ODST disc, the multiplayer is actually just Halo 3 multiplayer with all the maps.

I'm pretty sure this is correct, I feel as though I read this somewhere but I don't remember where.

Added official pictures of the various game editions to the OP. The Noble Six statue that comes with the Legendary edition looks pretty awesome. Of course, if it's anything like Halo 3, then it will be massively overproduced and found for drastic price drops a few months after release.

Well, the Legendary definitely seems a bit overpriced to me (though, if they did the equivalent for a Mass Effect game I'd be all over it).
