Hmm, maybe it does involve downloading. I want to know, now!

Regardless, I won't be on the beta until Monday night. Unless I win a code to start playing tomorrow (unlikely, given I've only entered one competition).

Someone just told me the beta is a 1.2gb download.

I have yet to confirm this with actual, supported evidence, but the more I think about, the more there has to be a download of some kind.

Someone in another forum just reported the beta goes live in 3 days 16 hours (give or take a few minutes). Correct me if I'm wrong, but that makes the beta release about 1am on Tuesday morning, by my calculations.

Also, Eurogamer are now reporting the beta closes on Wednesday 19th May - quite a short window to play it!

Ignore my rambling! Having a meltdown - it's just my maths.

The countdown clock was right, but I keep thinking it's Friday today! The beta is releasing at 1.00am UK time on Monday morning. In other words, a very late Sunday night. Which is GREAT news Very Happy

Well it's not idle speculation - this is based on the countdown clock on xbox.com. I just can't do basic maths, which is why I got it wrong to start with.

I'll be on late Monday, I hope, but not before.

Someone has pointed out the following:

To be honest, I wouldn't put too much stock in the exact time given by the countdown.

1am to me looks suspiciously like midnight but they have forgotten to take daylight savings time into account. i.e. the countdown counts to the day rather than the minute of the beta launch

In fact, "GMT" at the moment is actually 8.50am so 3 days 15 hours and 10 mins = MIDNIGHT

Theres no similar countdown on the US Xbox site and a 1am launch here would equate to 5pm on the 2nd, which means the "may 3rd" release would just be a lie.

I would expect the beta more like early morning US time - possibly 7.07am or something like that...


They could be right, they could be wrong.

"Work it out."

We're eight hours ahead. What this guy is saying is that he thinks the countdown is meant to countdown to the beta launch day, not the actual time of release. He's also saying that a release TIME of 1am on late Sunday/early Monday doesn't make sense, since that would be 5pm on Sunday 2nd in the US.

Seeing as the beta release date is 3rd May, and Bungie is a US developer, this wouldn't make a lot of sense.

Indeed - and that's why I won't be! I'm in Devon until Monday, and I'll be travelling back at 4am, then hitting the gym, and then catching up on sleep. After that, I'll get up and hit the beta hard - which'll be Monday night. Basketball

I'm looking forward to spending some time with the olds over the weekend. I'm on the holiday therest of the week - I can drop in and out of the beta as I wish. I mean, yeah, I'm excited, and yeah, I really want to play it, but I also need to get real life stuff done like decorating my lounge, plus there's the small matter of my 30th birthday. Smile

I heard it was five. One in the mouth, one in the bum, one in the normal crevasse, two in the hand.

Six if you count the girl
