Bungie has confirmed that a public Beta for Halo: Reach will launch on 3rd May, 2010. This announcement comes from the ongoing X10 event in San Francisco.
lets warm up our ODST copies i cant wait
Bungie really has my respect, they really know how to craft their multiplayer and support their community. I also love how they continually support split screen online and local play. I will be quite shocked if they ditch it with Reach. I know they are using a new engine or something but I honestly hope it doesn't mean they have to lose features. Halo really is one of the most versatile and complete Multiplayer games I have ever seen and I hope they continue that tradition with Reach. People may not like how the multiplayer plays, but it's hard to deny that Bungie's stream of support and the ridiculous variety of multiplayer features makes Halo a highly valued game. I hope you 360 fans have fun with this, I know that it's going to kill me not being able to play a new Halo game, especially one with this much promise.
OMG......Like SOOOO excited!!! =) where can we get some live feed or news on the event???
Its a lot later than I expected, but still May is good. Although I don't have a 360, I'm VERY curious to see Halo: Reach's multiplayer. Halo has always had the most COMPLETE multiplayer experience out there.
Cool. It'll be nice to get back into Halo. Haven't played it in awhile.
I know I can't wait either glad I got my ODST copy and just recently renewed my xbox live subscription. Damm this year really is turning out to be a great year for the xbox 360.
I'm waiting for the ViDoc to come out :(
Here, in no specific order, are 10 things you need to know coming out of X10 today: * The Halo Reach multiplayer beta will kick off on May 3. You will be able to access the beta via the Halo 3: ODST game disc. * Dead Rising 2 will release in North America on Aug. 31, Japan on Sept. 2 and Europe on Sept. 3. * Dead Rising: CASE ZERO an exclusive download only on Xbox LIVE, will launch prior to the full game and provide a playable prologue that bridges the story between the two titles. * Alan Wake will launch May 18 in North America and May 21 in Europe. Players can pre-order the title to receive the Bright Falls Bonus Pack, which includes exclusive content like Avatar gear, an Xbox LIVE theme, and a “making of” video. * The Xbox 360 Final Fantasy XIII Special Edition Bundle will release starting March 9 for $399, and include a 250GB Hard Drive, two Wireless Controllers, exclusive downloadable content and a Standard Edition copy of the game. * Toy Soldiers will kick off the Xbox LIVE Arcade Block Party on March 3 * Perfect Dark, Scrap Metal and Game Room will launch this March as a part of the Xbox LIVE Arcade Block Party. * Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Conviction will release at retailers starting April 13 in North America, April 16 in the United Kingdom, and April 28 in Japan. * Lost Planet 2 will launch in North America and Europe on May 18. * Fable III will be available this holiday.

Yay! for 3 month wait!
it's really not tons of games released :) peace and game on oh and one more thing, I can't wait to see perfect dark xbla footge it as promised to be shown on X10 (which is live now xD)
AvP, Dragon Age expansion, Splinter Cell, Alan Wake and then the Halo Reach beta. That's how the next few months are looking like for me.
That was fast, Major Nelson just tweeted this. Well can't wait to see what X10 has in store.
Thats seems like ages, but at least its a date

A little late for me. Well, at least it gives me time to get ODST.
You need the actual disc to gain access to the beta
You could always pick up a pre-owned copy of ODST
Cool, definitely can't wait. I'll admit a new Halo which isn't just an add-on justifies my Gold subscription a little.
