Will there be a beta test? Can I be in it?

Because of the nature of Halo as an Xbox title (at least at first) beta testing has been held on the Microsoft campus in Washington state. There have in the past been solicitations for fans in the area to participate in such tests.

It is not now known whether or not there will be a public beta test for the Windows and Macintosh version of Halo, and if so when or what the requirements for participation would be.
