Yep, won't be able to grab it for another 24 hours according to people on the Bungie forums.

Yeah. This really pisses me off. I saw it coming too, I just KNEW it wouldn't be playable today, before people even reported problems with Crackdown. I can't remember the first time there was an event on Live that started when it was supposed to without a hitch.

They need to get their shit together someday. It took them two to three weeks before people could actually download the Halo 2 map pack they paid for. The Old Spice event also didn't work for some people until about a week later, thus not allowing people to get the limited first place prize unless they set and refreshed the site all day. There's also some XBLA games like Alien Hominid that have glitched achievements, and according to Behemoth they've already fixed it, it's just up to Live. Whenever they feel like releasing the update.

Hopefully they'll extend the beta another day for us Crackdown owners that started late. Meanwhile, everyone else who got the beta and didn't pay a cent for it are having a good time.

Yeh but you have to pay VAT, live near the French, and can't get an HDTV at a reasonable price. I'll wait a day for my beta.

I can't wait until the beta is over so I can get a copy of Crackdown for killer cheap.

I gained over 1500 points for that damn old spice thing and they did not credit me for any of it! I have also had trouble downloading CSI episodes off Xbox live. What pisses me off is they have no trouble docking you the points for the download but then the download doesn't work for 2 days. And for once that wasn't my old routers fault it was on Microsofts end. I paid for the episode sat night, it didn't work till monday though.

Would also be nice if the arcade games didn't lag so much. I bought Double Dragon and when there is more then 5 moving objects on the screen it lags down to the points its almost unplayable. No excuse that a game that is being charged for should run that bad!

Sounds like from what I have read, they pretty much botched the double dragon port. How much of your lag is due to the bad arcade port and connection problems though? Didn't you post in another thread you were having serious connection issues?

I'm pretty sure he's talking about single player if he's talking about game slowdown issues due to too many objects on screen.

UPDATE : 5/16/07 3:55 p.m.
We're happy to finally announce that the issues being faced with the Halo 3 beta and Crackdown will be resolved shortly. The Microsoft team has found a solution and it's undergoing final testing now.

Assuming the test pass goes according to plan, the fix will come in the form of a Crackdown title update within the next three to six hours.

We understand many of you were eagerly awaiting your chance to jump into the Halo 3 Beta and this technical issue has put a damper on your plans. Thankfully the fix is incoming and we're sincerely sorry for any inconvenience this has caused. Ultimately we hope this will all soon be a distant memory once you pick up the Spartan Laser, launch yourself from a Mancannon and enjoy online shenanigans with your friends.

As a reminder, people who already have the Halo 3 Beta are unaffected by this issue. We'll keep you posted as soon as we have more information.
Should be pretty soon then. Just as well, I've had some things to get taken care of today, it's gonna be up just in time for me to actually enjoy it.

Apparently this is a known bug and resetting the update works for some people -- but not for me.

Guess I'll be waiting an hour or so before this bug rolls through before I start playing :-\
