In a recent interview with Microsoft’s Managing Director, Shane Kim and Microsoft’s General Manager Phil Spencer, took some time out of their day to let Game Informer know more about the Halo 3 Beta. The beta will start of small and grow and grow, basically meaning that they want gamers to enjoy their online experience during the Halo 3 beta. So what does this really mean? Well it would appear that the Halo 3 Beta is claiming to be nothing more than a ’Stress Test’ to find out how much Xbox Live can take. It seems that Microsoft will be doing this in phases, the reason for releasing the Halo 3 Beta with Crackdown is to have a ’two phase system’, which means when beta winners have had time to play the Halo 3 Beta, then when Crackdown is released they will be able to see how much stress it is putting on the Xbox Live servers.

So will Halo 3 be full of bugs and glitches or just a high profile stress test? Either way I’m sure it doesn’t matter, I’m sure you’re all itching to play this game come Spring’07.
