Give Voice to Your Charitable Spirit

Bungie has donated a cameo voice role to Hollywood Arts, a charity that reaches young homeless people through the arts, including video games, film, TV and more. The charity is a very practical one that teaches young people valuable skills and directly attempts to get them off the streets and into productive employment.

The cameo is for Halo 3, and the timeframe is tight, although the “wit” who wrote the eBay copy originally joked that if you don’t make the session in time, you’d have to end up in Halo 4. Note that was NOT an announcement, but rather a sad clunker of a gag. However, it’s all for a good cause, so if you’ve got pockets as deep as your voice, then head over to the eBay auction HERE and remember, we’re not running this auction, Hollywood Arts is. Through eBay. But it’s your chance for legendary status.

Halo 3 Beta Shenaniganry

There's been a lot of rampant speculation going on today regarding the Halo 3 Beta and the sign-up page for it. Going through the now live is the only way in which you are guaranteed to have actually registered. Do not trust direct links to the sign-up form, only access it through

If you've already registered via the direct link that some of our more rabid fans found earlier today, you may well have a perfectly valid registration, but from here on out you should only access the sign-up form through

This is phase one. There will be more ways to enter the beta program, so don't panic. We will try to ensure that everyone who wants to participate has the opportunity to do so. The beta will be a world-wide affair, and every region that is elligible to participate, will. Much of the information on applies to the US only - so if you live in a different region, keep an eye on your local Xbo
x site for details.
