Early Halo Reach Beta Access

Well some may not consider this a deal, but i do. You are getting this about 4 days earlier (haven't heard the details on exactly how to get it early yet). I'm sure everyone has heard the term: Time = Money. So if you add it up, 4 days = time = money. So technically you are getting -4 days = time = +money. So for the earlier time you get the beta (negative) will result in more money (positive)....


It's a simple math equation, and the result of this is an awesome deal. 8-)

Hm... should be in Contests and Free Stuff I believe but whatever. I am following both, but hopefully people update this because I do not check either of those sites much at all.

I'll update it when more info. becomes available. A mod can feel free to move to contests and free stuff, but it's also a "Video game deal" based on my incredible mathematical equation

I'll forgive you for posting it here if you tell us what to do when the time comes. Because I am not becoming a fan of them on Facebook.

Went ahead and followed on twitter. After ODST Halo felt dead to me but after watching Giant Bomb's video they posted today I feel like I could find some enjoyment in it.

So as long as you've got that star next to the "tweet" it's been "retweeded" and you are good for the drawing? Sorry but I never use twitter so I'm twitter-retarded.

No offense to the OP, but I can wait a day or two.
If this was about 2 weeks in advance like SEGA did with Bayonetta (or the week or so with the 2nd Lost Planet 2 online demo), it would be a different story.
Anyway, congrats in advance to anyone that gets it early. And thanks to the OP for posting it regardless.

a video game website created by Jeff Gerstmann, who got fired from gamespot for giving kane & lynch a bad review when the publisher paid them lots to advertise on their site.
