The Halo Reach multiplayer beta kicks up next Monday, and the only way to get access is to own and copy of Halo 3: ODST. You'd think by now that most Halo fans would own a copy of ODST, which was released last Fall, but according to Microsoft - that's simply not the case.
"Naturally, the demand for Halo 3: ODST will be reinvigorated as soon as the public Beta kicks off," director of Xbox and Entertainment at Microsoft Stephen McGill told CVG.
While it's unlikely that "tons" will sale, which the rep further went on to say, those that skipped the title have another reason to pick it up now - it's dropped in price under $30.
While earlier this year the game dropped from $60 to $40, the new price is most likely a sale in direct correlation to trying to snag buyers for the Reach Beta.
And while the Reach Beta won't have any co-op modes in it, ODST still has the truly excellent Firefight mode as well as a full cooperative campaign. Remember, the game reviewed very well here on Co-Optimus, and even managed to win co-op GOTY last year.
