Halo: Reach Beta Winners Up In This Post!

 These guys will be doing this soon.
Without further ado, here are the winners of the Halo: Reach beta quest contest we posted Monday. Winners were chosen randomly by robot from the gargantuan number of users who finished the Reach for the Stars quest set. (Can you guess our rejected Reach-themed first choice for the quest name?)

Winners, look for your code to show up in your PM inbox shortly. The beta's live and kicking now, so get it while you can -- May 19 is officially the last day. Everyone else, you can still pop in your copy of ODST next Monday 5/3 and start slaying. You might even have a chance to slay us in the near future. Stay tuned!

Anyone who bought ODST and won one feel like donating a code? You'd make me a very happy nerd.

At least a few of these users don't even have Xboxes, or at least their accounts aren't synced.

Did you guys check to see if these guys actually have 360's?

Congrats to the winners.  If you already have a copy of ODST, I recommend you loan it to a friend for the length of the beta.  I can't take credit for the idea, but I can pass it along.
