there is a way to play: (not sure if posted yet, searched breifly)
It has been proven by a few other forums and someone on machinama confirmed it too.

1. You need a friend/somebody who trusts you who has a code and has downloaded it
2. recover their gamertag, go to download history, download again
3. start up the beta, bring your account in using another controller
4. sign them out (let them know they can recover their account back)
5. Enjoy the beta (however you cannot turn your xbox off since the beta is tied to the other account, You will need to leave your xbox on as long as you wanna play the beta.)

good luck to all!

Doing this is against XBL's ToS and I believe people did something similar last time around, and got banned until 9999. Not worth it.

lol good thing i haven't done it yet, but I know there are dozens who have.

I guess use this method with caution, I dunno, I just thought I would share incase some ppl were really desperate to play

I doubt anyone ever got banned for this. Every 'beta' has been open to anyone who has whatever game.
And for the OP, you could just wait till the 3rd.

People got banned for entering the Halo 3 beta via methods like this.

To me, it looks like the people who hacked their way on. Not account hopping.
It doesn't even tell how or why.

I can't believe you're arguing with me. Just don't do it. Here's another one that's linked to in the other article:

http://www.newlaunches.com/archives/halo_3_cheaters_to_be_banned_till_9999_ad.php

"An avid gamer with a GamerScore of 61,000 got kicked because he got Epsilon from a friend's friend and tried to glitch it into his account using the two controller exploit."

Sounds familiar, eh?
