UPDATE- IT SEEMS THAT JUST THE INITIAL BATCH OF CRACKDOWN GAMES WILL INCLUDE THE BETA KEY NOT ALL OF THEM.
“Oh my, I got to get to EB Games and Gamestop! I need to get my copy of Crackdown so I can play the Halo 3 beta when it releases. Only some copies specially marked have the code.” Preorders on Crackdown are pretty high as indicated by Microsoft because of the Halo 3 beta codes being guarnteed to all who preorder. Well guess what, everyone copy of Crackdown has a Halo 3 beta code on the disc no matter when you buy it. If you buy it April 15, you get into the beta. If you buy it March 1 you get into the beta. Anyone who buys Crackdown gets into the beta. The beta is open to everyone as long as you buy Crackdown. Hope you enjoy the free game with you Halo beta key (It’s a pretty good game, just a smart marketing move by Microsoft with Halo 3 beta Key. Check out Marketplace now for demo.)
