Download or Disk?

I just received an email from www.amazon.co.uk saying they had a 33% sale on ODST (37.42) so this would suggest its going to be a disk and not download because Amazon.co.uk don't sell downloadable content like Amazon.com do.

Could it be available for both download and disk?

Oh yeah, we also announced what we’ve been up to beyond Halo 3: ODST. While it’s not nearly as robust as the Halo 3: ODST section of B.net, Halo: Reach has a project page all its own. If you’re looking to check out the brand-new teaser trailer or hit the Halo: Reach forum, this is your one stop shop for all things set in the distant future. Yup, there’s an Xbox LIVE multiplayer beta coming. And yup, you’ll get access straight from your Halo 3: ODST disc.

It's a disc, actually two. Disc 1 has the ODST campaign, Disc 2 has all the maps and the Halo 3 online matchmaking. I'm not sure which disc the beta for Reach will be one. Probably the second.

Actually I believe the Beta will probably be a code for donwload.

If it is, mine will probably go on eBay lol

If it is on disk, I'm thinking disc two. Bungie would probably want to squeeze in as much as they can for ODST. Since Halo 3 multiplayer probably takes half a disk the beta will probably go there.

Well the Halo 3 beta on Crackdown was inside the disc, I'm assuming this will be similar.

There is game on demand. Have you heard it. I have. And it all full XBOX 360 games. But as I sayed you have to used a credit card for it. type in Games on demand-XBOX 360. And you will know about it.

yeh i watched an IGN interview with a Bungie guy and he confirmed that the first disc is the ODST complete and the second disc is the Halo 3 multiplayer with all the 24 maps. Meaning that if u just want to play Halo 3 multiplayer, you can just pop in disc 2

I highly doubt ODST will be in the Games on Demand catalogue right from the start. In fact, I doubt anything will be available via that service from the start. Maybe a long way down the line, but the initial launch will only be titles from like late 2007 and earlier. And since it is only launching in August with ODST out just a month later, I don't see it being on the service very soon.

Games on Demand I think is meant to spur purchases of older games at cheap prices. Mass Effect will debut at $19.99 for instance.

The beta is in the extras section on the campaign disk (Disk 1)
