The new title update for the game is going to render all of the discs that were sent during the update preview useless. Don't worry though, Microsoft should have sent you an email with a code to download Halo: Reach from Games on Demand. I guess the only real downside to this is that people who have limited HDD space and want to keep playing won't be able to. The game is 6.6 gigs.
PSA For Those Who Received Reach From The Beta Preview
It's crazy that they did this. They sent out discs for a firmware update beta. There was no reason to give this game away twice, but they did. Pretty cool of them. I was trying to think of some way to give the code away here on the forums, but I already offloaded it on a friend.
Yes and no. A lot about it is mad Halo (the way it's moves, the pacing of the combat, the overall universe), but it's definitely a departure from the other games in tone and storytelling. And I feel like it has the least interesting level design of any of them.
Actually played a bit of the first mission today...so this is Halo then huh?
@InsidiousTuna: I like the way you think! ; )
I don't need my digital copy so I was asking a few of my friends over at Comic Vine last night what kind of contest I should hold. If you guys have any ideas or even want to co-host a contest with me so we can give away multiple copies let me know.
@SteamPunkJin: I would love you forever if I could have your code. I play Reach nearly everyday, and the concept of doing that without a disc is very appealing.
You love the game and want less wear and tear on your system. So you know what? Sure. Check your PMs, code will be waiting for ya. Give your copy to a friend or something, something cooler than selling it back to Gamestop anyway.
