Very nice :-D
A beta for Halo 4 means it's looking at a 2012 release date. Since we haven't seen any gameplay, that means there will probably be a big unveiling at E3 2012--when was the last time a huge game was shown for the first time at an E3 then released any a few months later? It's fake, and 4 teh hitz.
The reveal trailer showed a "Holiday 2012" release time frame...
Halo CE will come with beta access codes. You're thinking that it's saying Halo 4 beta will begin when Halo CE releases.
Halo Games are alway quality Games. Halo 3 was great and Reach was amazing. Give the people more if the want more of something, that doesn't mean you milk something.
Milking something requires it to be a poor product in the first place.... Halo is a fantastic franchise so far!
There are so many Halo Fans out there that want Halo to continue and see how it goes on. We will still see Halo on the next Xbox. Why stop developing something which defined a lot according to FPS, Multiplayer, Fun etc. Just the haters talking about milking.
Personally, there's a very big difference between the releases of Halo and the releases of Call of Duty that for me, say it's not being milked. Halo 1 - November 15, 2001 Halo 2 - November 9, 2004 Halo 3 - September 25, 2007 Halo: Reach - September 14, 2010 Halo 4 - Holiday 2012 (In development since 2009) Each game has had a very large development timeframe to actually improve on the game and be something even more unique.
Yes, but development time doesn't mean sh!t. A good game is a good game regardless of development time. I enjoy Halo as well as CoD every year. Especially MW.
Oh wow, Im def getting Halo: CEA now :D
Rubbish. non English website, can't read or understand any of it. Should be on News4dutchmen.com.
Hmm. Now i want to get it :D Justifies the price more.
Isn't that becoming the norm?
Seems like common sense this would happen though
As much as its probable, the title does need changing.
$40 plus a beta. Yes.
who didnt see this coming? honestly....
I know right - that like owing a restaurant that sells the best burgers and every one buys them only to discontinue the burgers and switch them with Sushi. For the people that are saying milk I hope you never end up owning your own company because you have no idea what business 101 is.
that would be cool but i don't think they will seeing as how they would have said something by now and Halo CEA is gonna get really good sales from fans of the originals and halo in general to begin with
Halofest at PAX would be a good time to announce something like this....it would be 2-3 months from release and a great way to generate hype. I kinda expected this anyway
oh yeah, i forgot about halofest, that would be a good time as well as announcing a collector's if they are doing one of those either way i won't be surprised if its true it is normal for games now a days as another selling point
You can bet your bottom dollar this will be true. They are gonna need a gimmick to sell this game to the masses and a beta invite sounds like something the Halo franchise would do. If the beta isn't on this game you can bet they will package it in with some other microsoft exclusive that launches in 2012, but most likely it will be with this Halo release.

Well, I was gonna buy it anyway but if I need to preorder to get a Halo 4 beta key....they got me
Wow, such a misleading title. It's a possibility, though it'd be pretty awesome if the beta was included. Hopefully, halofest clears all of this up.
Would love a Halo 4 beta to be included with Halo CE. It makes sense. I've been in the last two Halo beta's and they were both fantastic!
UPDATE: Frankie has just confirmed on NeoGAF that there will be no beta in Halo: CEA http://www.neogaf.com/forum...
um, unless Frank O'Connor turned asian and is unprofessional enough to have a subtitle under his name that says drunk, naked and uncooperative....I'm thinking not But hey, neogaf can be trusted right?
ummm that is him, he has been a NeoGAF member for a LONG time
sorry I've never been a neogaf member...figured he would be a bit more obvious on who he was.....this is good news for me anyway because I don't have to preorder it anymore
I knew it would happen!!! MS needs a big beta next year, guess who'll be the poster boy? Doesn't matter though, I'm getting Halo: Anniversary regardless. The Halo 4 Beta is a very nice touch though. @WWMonkey: DAMMIT!!
So....if they include the halo 4 beta and price this at $40 this almost becomes a must buy imo.... If MS pulls and ODST and prices this at $60 now because of the beta inclusion I will most definitely NOT BUY
Preorder on Amazon at $40 with price guarantee and you won't have to worry about the increase to $60.
OMG!! *head explodes*
An H4 beta in Halo anniv is just good business. It would be stupid not to include a beta.
halo 4 will be a xbox720/nextbox game so no, there will be no beta!
So are we talking 8 million sales now up from 4 mill.
Great I wasn't planning on getting the remake (Sigh) looks like I got no choice. Well its not happening srry I'll pick this game up later but at the moment They'res other games that have my attention and I gotta stick to the list.
