After reading the entire press release that I got in the mail about this, it turns out that this is the demo shown at the MS Briefing... that we've already discussed if you were keeping up on the editorials :) It's a cool clip that shows off some of the new features, so definately check it out. I pity Bungies web servers though.

Thats what minor sites are for. It's not going to take long before there's other sites have it.

Hell yes! I'd record it to a VHS tape so I wouldn't have to boot the disc up everytime.

BTW-The move will indeed be 150-180MB, and is the 640x480 version of the Halo 2 E3 trailer, without the shaky cameras or people cheering (so you don't have this one already MasterWeed).

****** to hell, I hate stupid Windows Media Player. I downloaded and installed WMP 9 over 5 times(And I already had it before those too) and it still says I don't have it.

it really looks awesome. what a diffrence between the two. the e3 demo I could not make out half the stuff master chief was shooting at. now its clear as can be.plus I did not hear them say the word "sh**" in the e3 demo and what cortana says at the end.

is 640x480 going to be the in game rez or is that just for the demo?

Just watched it..WOAH!!!

before i downloaded it..i was just like..eh, won't thsi be the same thing

But remember that thread over in the E3 2003 forum..about the IA? It was different this time..like they changedit..it brute fired a shot or two, and the covenant (grunts) at the begining shot at him when he threw the grenade..that didn't happen in the regular one..

holy crap, this game has AMAZING graphics..

I heard it needs WMP 9, which blows because WMP 9 blows. I was forced to install WMP 9 about a week ago, so at least this gives me good reason....

I have it and could upload it to my website. It is gonna take 2 hours though, and if there isn't enough demand for it I won't.

So if you want me to, tell me.

Yea, well, at least they aren't hosting it at Xbox.com, that ****en piece of **** site doesn't recognize WMP 9 if it bit it in the ass. I tried to watch some movies on there, and "You don't have WMP 9! Get it Here!" Thing comes up, and I already have WMP 9, so I delete all the files(since you can't uninstall) and then I reinstall it... Several times I did this, with different browsers, and it still doesn't work.
