Microsoft Will Reward Faithful Halo 2 Players Beta Invite To Halo: Reach, Free MS Points and LIVE Subscription

Post by knife in a box on Sun Mar 07, 2010 7:31 pm

A letter from Microsoft:

On April 15, 2010, we will discontinue
the Xbox LIVE service for original Xbox games playable on Xbox v1 and
Xbox 360. In our continuing efforts to evolve the service, we need to
make changes to the LIVE service that are not compatible with original
Xbox v1 games.

What does this change mean for you?

• It does not affect
your ability to play original Xbox v1 games offline, but does remove
LIVE connectivity and support for online multiplayer, leader boards,
and other online features of these games.

• We realize that
you are an avid Halo 2 fan. Unfortunately, with this change, you will
not be able to play Halo 2 on Xbox LIVE going forward.

• Although it is
difficult to say goodbye to Halo 2, the Halo franchise continues as the
benchmark for multiplayer gaming in this generation with Halo 3, Halo
3: ODST, and soon Halo: Reach. On the Xbox 360, you will continue to
have access to the LIVE service where you can enjoy hundreds of other
LIVE-enabled games.

When will this change take effect?

• April 15, 2010.

What is Xbox LIVE doing for me?

• To thank you for
being a loyal Xbox LIVE customer, we are giving you a free, three-month
LIVE Gold membership and 400 Microsoft Points for you to use as you
choose on Xbox LIVE.

• In addition, because you’ve been so loyal to Halo, we are inviting you to participate in the exclusive Halo: Reach Beta.

How do I get these offers?

• You will receive a
token for 400 MS points. Check your Xbox LIVE account messages on the
console. These points can be used for 365 days after you activate your
token.

• We are extending
your Gold membership by three months automatically. The extension will
be directly reflected in your LIVE account.

• Finally, as the
beta gets closer, you will receive an e-mail containing the code
granting you access to the exclusive Halo: Reach Beta.

Thank you for being a loyal Xbox LIVE member.

Don't we already get beta access through Halo 3: ODST? You can rent it or buy it used for like $5 now probably...Microsoft = fail.
