    Worth a shot - I have ODST but if I win this I might just give it away to an OTter :noes:

    Bungie has said repeatedly the only way to access the Beta is through the ODST disk, so I doubt this is real.

    just use a junkmail e-mail - there'll probably be a shitload of people doing this so we don't have much chance but you never know

    its on bungies front page so its legit that they do have codes

    Play the Beta Early! Posted by urk at 4/26/2010 10:09 AM PDT


    Want a Friends and Family code?

    Ars Technica wants to sneak you past our bouncer and give you an early, all access pass. They've got twenty codes all told. If you want in, you better get cracking. Thanks to HBO for the heads up.

    Play the Halo: Reach beta early? We have your hookup

    its seems nothing like halo 2 or 3, not dominated by a single skilled weapon like the BR

    Some new innovations with the core Halo style of combat. Could be fun for a while.
