Halo 3 Beta will only last three weeks; Bungie Explains why

Those of you who have waited for a video game to come out know how awesome a beta is. Unfortunately for Halo fans everywhere, the Halo 3 beta is only going to last three weeks. Obviously, most people with invites are wondering why it's going to be so short, especially after putting so much effort into getting a Beta invite. Bungie has this official answer to that question.
...obviously the number one reason is that the longer we're spending resources taking care of the Beta, the less time we're applying what we've learned from it to the final game. And statistically, three weeks is going to seem like a pretty long time when you look at the hours you log on the game.
In short? Enjoy it while it lasts.Source: 1Up

Halo 3 is only three weeks long because they don't want anyone to get bored of it without actually buying it first.

yeah suppose 3 weeks is enuff to get its lill hooks inta ya, either that or due to instablility in the code it will spontaniously explode after more than 3 weeks hehe

Well, I wont miss signing up for this. However, those in the know (read: actually beta testers) will you please keep the rest of us abreast of the development and how it goes? Ive never actually played any of the Halo games, but Id love to know the progress of this one.

I guarantee there will be people who play it 18 hours/day for 3 weeks. Most good FPS players could become pro after 2 or 3 18 hour days.
