GameSpot gets its hands on Bungie's long-awaited shooter; live webcast of gameplay now under way. Today, press outlets were given their own codes to access the beta, and the first video footage from Halo 3 multiplayer is already on GameSpot. Next Wednesday, Crackdown purchasers lucky enough to receive an invite to the Halo 3 beta will get their first chance to play Bungie's long-awaited shooter.
For the past several hours, GameSpot editors have been sampling the beta's three maps and multiplayer modes. Editors are now engaging in a live gameplay marathon, and the virtual carnage can be watched in real time now via GameSpot's Media Player.
