Purchase Crackdown, get a Halo 3 Beta Invite

crackdown_halo3_beta_invite.jpgThe picture on the right (click to enlarge) was posted on the Cheap Ass Gamer forums this morning by one of their moderators. This is a scan of a Crackdown ad from the latest issue of Gamepro. If you look in the lower-right corner you can clearly see the ad boasting about the game including an invitation to the Halo 3 multiplayer beta. WTF???

From the screenshots and videos I’ve seen of this upcoming Xbox 360 title, Crackdown looks pretty nice. Of course, I’ll probably rent it as I’ve been getting leery of sinking $60 into games in my old age, but still, if the retail version comes with automatic acceptance into the Halo 3 beta, I may just have to spend the money and hope for the best. Hopefully Microsoft isn’t throwing the beta invites in there to placate Crackdown being a load of crap and are including it simply to boost sales of a good title.
