Editorial: A Beta Preview: Why Aren’t More Companies Doing this? April 29, 2010

Posted by Maniac in Editorials.

The Halo Reach beta video was released this afternoon and is avalible to download to all Halo 3 ODST owners who boot their first discs up.  It is a very detailed video narrated by Aisha Tyler who goes over the rules of the beta and what is avalible.

The video, taking up several minutes, keeps smack talk to a minimum and specifically shows all the new components of Halo Reach, including the menu interface, matchmaking, and gives a rundown of weapons, controls, maps and gametypes.

So simple an idea, do a video where someone tells you how to play the game.  I haven’t played a second of the Reach beta yet but I feel completely ready to play.  Why aren’t more companies doing this?

The beta will not start until May 3rd, they’re probably going to take the video down once the beta becomes active.  If you have a copy of Halo 3 ODST and intend to play the Halo Reach beta, you owe it to yourself to watch this video to be fully briefed on it before you play.
