well its kinda old news most already know but lets hear your thoughts...

i think its genious work by MS, a game crackdown that would sell about half a million copies now will sell about 4 million coppies. im getting the game, not just because of the beta(okay about 50% because of the beta) but this game looks all around fun :)


please excuse me if this was posted the search button didnt find any for me

I'm Goin' to try everything to get the Beta without buying the game. I was thinking about the game, but lost interest everytime they prolonged it..

E-Bay? A Friend? BlockBuster?

I think it looks pretty tight. Plus, i think ill just have to sell that beta on Ebay for some unexpected extra cash ;)

Why ebay it when your buddy right here will gladly slide you some MS points for it? :)

I did read that Bungie and Microsoft were cracking down to stop people selling them for profit, so ebay is possibly not the safest way.

I don't know why they did the Beta sign up if they were just gonna give away beta tryouts by simply buying a game. But crackdown did need something it had some decent hype 6 months ago and then they delayed it twice and now who really cares. The game looks cool in most respects, but seriously there are other games coming out with better appeal. Crackdown should've been a 2006 release, now the only way to save the project was to pack in beta testing for Halo3 even though we already signed up three weeks ago. I wonder what they'll do if crackdown is delayed again?

Ebay will close it off like they did to Rance's HDD.

I'd only get it to sell the beta invite for hundreds of pounds to twitching Halo fanboys.

Just wouldn't use eBay =D

Is this real and confirmed? Wow. This is very cool, I enjoyed this news very much. I was planning to buy crackdown and crossing my fingers for beta. Now I get both in one package! Thanks Microsoft!

As previously reported (http://www.joystiq.com/2006/12/27/buy-halo-3-beta-invitation-get-crackdown/), copies of Crackdown will contain invites to the Halo 3 beta program. Releasing on February 20, the game disc will act as a key to download the required data from Xbox Live Marketplace. Microsoft promises to release further information regarding the program for each region, though NTSC importers stuck in exotic countries may wish to consider the Crackdown route in the meantime.

Loooks like u dont have to steal anything from blockbuster bc its in the disc. So thats gonna get all the people who hate 0s to play it now lol

or

It's easy. Play Halo 2 online for three hours between Thursday, Feb. 1, 2007, 12:01 a.m. EST and Feb. 3, 2007, 11:59 p.m. EST. If you survive, rush to the official Halo 3 website (http://www.halo3.com/) and be part of the first 13,333 gamers to register in the "Rule of Three" program. If, however, you end up being number 13,334 ... well, you'll have to buy Crackdown.

What the fuck, just because they pack in a ticket for the Halo 3 Beta, they are going to charge $60 for Crackdown instead of $50 like most other MS titles? Fucking gay. Seriously that is dumb. Unfortunately I actually want to play Crackdown so I'll be buying it, even at $60.

Yeah, I'm probably going to try the 3 hours of Halo 2 gameplay, but if I'm too late, you'll find me waiting next to GameStop at 11:00 on Feb. 20.

Me too. What's Bungie got to do with CrackDown? Maybe trying to make some cross-profits?

Bungie and the company producing Crackdown (whoever the hell they are) are operating under the supervision of/owned by Microsoft Game Studios. MGS is essentially a big, ballin'-ass pimp. MGS is starting to realize that one of his hoes ain't looking so hot anymore, so he's throwing in a free BJ from a hottie to anyone willing to take her skank-ass for a ride.

that's fuckin gay you have to be 17 or older to register on halo 3 to get a chance for the beta. so if you're not 17 you'll have to buy crackdown, or just say you are 17 :) i think i'll do that

So it seems that no one is really cares about the release of Crackdown...It seems like most people care about the release of the "Halo 3 Beta invite disc featuring a game called Crackdown". I had my 360 reserved for about 1 year before it launched and there were 3 games I was (and still am) pumped for: Gears of War, Halo 3, and Crackdown. I don't understand what sounds lame about GTA meets the Matrix and Spiderman on steroids...? There are a bunch of videos for Crackdown on IGN.com and Gamespy, check them out, and obviously the demo on the 18th of January to start to form opinions.

I just find it hard to believe that people are buying Crackdown for Halo 3 Beta testing and not for the great game that I think Real Time Worlds will produce. I am buying Crackdown cause I'm excited for it, and as an added bonus I will get an invite to participate in Halo 3 history. Word to your mother...?

There are 2 simple reasons that will account for 3/4 of that game's sales: H3 Beta and Achievements.
