Play Halo 2, get free access to Halo 3 beta

Apparently, there was a Halo 3 beta key giveaway we missed. However, not to worry, as Microsoft is letting more people register for free entry into the Halo 3 beta program. All you have to do is play Halo 2 online. According to Microsoft's new "rule of three", you need to play Halo 2 for three hours between Thursday, Feb. 1, 2007, 12:01 a.m. EST and Feb. 3, 2007, 11:59 p.m. EST. If you do, then Microsoft will allow the first 13,333 who complete the three hours to get a free registration to the Halo 3 beta program. If you miss this opportunity, buying a copy of the Xbox360 game "Crackdown" will land you a free Halo 3 beta registration. When the Halo 3 beta is released, people who have Halo 3 beta registrations can download it through Xbox Live.Source: Joystiq

With Halo2 only costing $15-20, I might just have to go for this. Plus, I've been curious to find out how well 360 handles the upconversion on the compatible XBox1 titles anyway.

So there are going to be 20,000+ Beta testers?

Well, your question sounded like "zomg so many beta testers! crazy wtf!".

So I thought I'd give you an idea how many regular players Halo 2 had.
