yea it must be the trailer from E3 because they aren't going to release a demo disk for Halo2.

If there was a playable demo of Halo 2 available, it would be all over the internet. It's likely E3 videos and stuff :)

All games, no matter how low budget, are beta tested...or else they'd be barely playable. I have a feeling you are referring to an open beta (similar to Xbox Live) and if you are I agree with you. If you really feel there will be no beta testing you are most certainly not correct.

at the bungie website they said that there won't be a public beta testing. The designers and other bungie employees working on Halo2 and their families will be testing it.

Q Will there be a public beta test for Halo 2?
A Unfortunately, No. Halo 2 will undergo rigorous internal testing but it will not be available to the public. Anyone who claims to have a beta copy or to be a participant in the beta test other than a Bungie employee is pulling your leg.

As far as I know, console games rarely, if ever, have an open beta.

No surprise there, but thanks for the post anyway tuff, maybe (but not likely) will stop a few threads about that being started.

BTW, seems at least one person was confused, a demo does not amount to an open beta. But I doubt we'll see a demo either.

Here is what my friend said.

(HES A BETA TESTER)HES SAD HE DUSNT GET TO PLAY IT :)


---CLOSED BETA TESTING---
-You do it in front of the people at their facilities
1. so they know exactly how you like it.
2. so you can't pirate copies (DVD-R)

I have heard that this is what is happening in Washington...

No, it is definitely not playable but it looks great! It was included in XBOX magazine in October I think.

I was excited hoping to hear there would be actual a game to play. Oh well, I've waited this long, I guess I can wait a little longer for it to be released.:(

not sure, but they announced the sequel at the "X02" thingy in NYC. It was some sort of Microsoft party. So we are getting close to having waited 2 years. But the wait's almost over!!:D

real question is: is it absolutely for certain that this game is on for xbox live? I bought the damn thing for Halo 2 the day it came out so I would have my handle and haven't even turned on the system since two days after.

yea it is. goto that site I posted earlier and at the faq about Halo2 they have an interview with a designer or programmer or somebody working on Halo2 and he said that it will definately be on live and u will be able to use the headset communicator.

If he's going to say something like that then he's obviously not afraid of what people are going to say to him.

Hey Mikeman I still don't believe anything you say about your "source" so I will just ignore what you say about it to save myself the effort. Nothing personal, I just think it's a waste of time.
