So here's the deal I got a code for the Halo Reach beta and I dont have time to play it so I am giving it away to one of you lucky people. All you need to do is reply to this topic and on May 1 I will randomly choose a person who has replied to this topic and send him the code. If you dont own an Xbox 360, already have a code for the beta or just want to reply but dont want to enter the drawing just mention it in your post so I will know not to put your name in the list of people for the drawing. Also feel free to reply more than once (it wont raise your chances of winning but it will make this topic more lively).
 
Edit: read my last post please.

Why May 2?
 
BTW, why not give me it a day early. Count me in too. (Also I'm first)
 
If I get an extra code I will PM you back to say I don't want it.

Yeah, why May 2nd? That gives one extra day, if you gave it away today, you could give four days ahead. ;__;

#4 Posted by Rinkalicous (1339 posts) -

This would make far more sense if you just gave the code to me, right now.

#5 Posted by Computerplayer1 (991 posts) -

Sure. Count me in, good sir.

#10 Posted by JamesKond (232 posts) -

So I get to play the beta one day earlier? Oh, why not, right? :P

Thought I'd give the code a day ahead so the winner wouldnt have to wait  for the it after the beta started (I have no idea what time it starts and im too lazy to start calculating which time it is in my region) but it seems people want the extra day so I will change it to May 3.

I want in, please.

#15 Posted by SythonX7 (134 posts) -
@Mr_Skeleton: The code allows you to play 5 days ahead of the betas release like Today dude!
#16 Posted by Church069 (250 posts) -

Sure I want a code.

#17 Posted by Hitchenson (4682 posts) -

Sure thing, man. Awesome.

#18 Posted by PaNaMa (6 posts) -

Not sure how, but a boatload of people on NeoGaf got codes today and are all playing. So if there are more early access codes avail, PLEASE count me amongst those interested =p

#19 Posted by Crono11 (1635 posts) -

I'd love a beta code. But I still don't understand why you don't give it out today. The codes are active right now so someone could be playing the beta right now.

#20 Posted by Xyberly (2 posts) -

The beta has already started and the code work right now. So I don't see why you have to wait so long to give it away? 
 
Anyway, count me in for the giveaway!

#21 Posted by Elazul (1327 posts) -

Sure, I could do with a beta code.

#22 Posted by ch13696 (4582 posts) -

Don't enter me in because I don't have my Xbox 360 back yet. But this is a good thing you're doing instead of selling it.

From what I understand there are two types of codes: the first are the spcial codes that are given from Bungie (like the one GB is giving away) which allows you to start playing a few days before the beta starts and the second is the one I have which is the code that you get from Halo ODST.
 
Feel free to correct me if im wrong I will change the date to May 1so it will give time for more people to enter the drawing but will still have two days before May 3.

very kind of you, count me in! =)

EDIT: After reading your post, this thread can be locked now.
 
You don't get a code with ODST. You download it using the game disc...

Huh? I'm confused. You don't actually get a code with ODST -- you download and access the beta from the ODST campaign disk from May 3rd. Surely if you've got a code, it's going to work as of now.

No,  the codes are for early access. On May 3rd you download the game from the menu in ODST. No code there.
