Halo 3 Beta Snafu Sparks Fury Among the Hardcore

Lots of gamers were let down this morning, when the launch of Bungie’s hotly awaited Halo 3 Beta was marred by one of the three entry methods: Crackdown.

Some of us play other games to pass the time – hoping to download the beta soon, of course, but others take more drastic methods… They make songs. forum member “iXi GoDz” passed on the following message this morning while waiting for the Beta:

I think this is pretty how all of us feel right about now, at least those who are waiting for the Crackdown Halo 3 Beta.

This was made by MonGoLoiD iXi. Enjoy and weep with the rest of us.

Attached to the message was this ‘ditty’ performed by “MonGoLoiD iXi”:

Halo 3 Beta Sorrow

Ouch. I guess it does get lonely at the top. Make one mistake, and you’ve got a forum riot on your hands. Even Major Nelson‘s site has been downed due to high server load from fans looking for news about the Beta snafu.

I understand that a lot of gamers are pissed at Bungie right now, but it takes a whole new level of being pissed to write songs about how pisssed you are. Then again, songs about being pissed off that have nice guitar riffs tend to break Top Ten charts, and chances are that this one could reach those levels in the gaming scene.

Bungie’s on top of it as much as they can be, though. Frank O’Connor announced this morning that they’re working on it:

With any luck this will be a short delay. People entering the Beta through other methods – Friends and Family, Rule of Three and so on, are unaffected.

Here’s hoping that Bungie and the Xbox Live team get something figured out soon. You don’t want to alienate your most hardcore fans before the final product hits stores.

I’m sure Bungie’s on top of things. Let’s give it time (hopefully not too much time) to pan out.

This goes out to all those who are waiting for Crackdown [via Forums]

    LOL! The ending to that song is funny. Bungie going to have to hurry up and fix this.
