A new Halo 3 video was shown in an ad spot tonight on ESPN. You can check it out here if you didn't catch it on TV. A sweet 720p hi-def version will be up on XBLM soon.

Also, Bungie has opened signups for the Halo 3 multiplayer beta that's scheduled to begin sometime in Spring 2007. The site was getting slammed earlier this evening, and I'm not sure if they're selecting on a first-come first-served basis, but it's worth putting your name in the hat if you're a Halo fan.

That reminds me - I've got my copy of Gears of War as well, but unfortunately, with finals coming up next week, I won't get a chance to dive in until the 15th. I did get a chance to play it for a little while at a friend's place and with my brother when I was in NYC a few days ago though, and it's fantastic! Should be a fun way to celebrate the end of the quarter. :)
