    You have to buy Crackdown. The beta is on the main screen of Crackdown.
    There is no seperate Beta disc.

    To your question... YES, You have to have the game "crack down" in each time, I believe. Can't say for certain because the beta hasn't started yet!

    I don't think people realize that a beta is different from a demo.

    I'll just wait for the real deal instead of playing a glitchy preview.

    ^^well it's gonna have alot of bugs and gameplay issues, but not as much as an alpha version....they've tested a lot to get it to this point, this is just the final touches so it should still be enjoyable to play.

    and now fans can blaim themselves for not reporting something like, dual wielding is too big an advantage ect ect, like they did the second game.

    Starts wednesday @ 2:00 am. And you need the disc. Crackdown has a link in the game to download but you do need the disc everytime to play it.

    Crackdown Halo 3 demo on hold
    Following reports of problems, Bungie delays the release of the shooter demo tied to the popular Xbox 360 shooter.
    By Tor Thorsen, GameSpot
    Posted May 16, 2007 10:26 am PT

    When it was released earlier this year, Crackdown proved a solid hit, selling nearly 540,000 copies as of March 31, according to the NPD Group. Besides its blend of free-range shooting and platforming, the game's biggest draw was that purchasers of its initial production run were provided with a key to the Halo 3 online multiplayer beta.

    The beta, which was distributed to the press last week, was supposed to become accessible by key-holders earlier today. However, following numerous reports of problems with the demo, developer Bungie Studios has since taken it offline. As of press time, the beta was still not online.

    Unsurprisingly, pandemonium ensued in the wake of the delay. Despite assurances from Bungie that studio officials had "contacted the appropriate [Xbox] Live authorities and they are taking care of the problem as we speak," frenzied traffic overwhelmed the blog of Xbox Live director of programming Larry "Major Neslon" Hyrb, which is used to disseminate official XBL news.

    "We're aware that some users are having difficulty downloading the Halo 3 multiplayer beta via Crackdown," said Hyrb in a bare-bones splash page on his site. "Bungie Studios is working with the Xbox Live team to resolve this as quickly as possible--stay tuned. Gamers entering the beta through other means, such as the friends and family remain unaffected."

    GameSpot will have more updates on the status of the Halo 3 as they become available. In the meantime, check out the hands-on preview of the beta or watch the various gameplay movies below.
