It all starts tonight.

The 60-second commercial will air on ESPN sometime between 5:50 and 6:20PM PST in North America. The rest of the world can download the commercial at Xbox.com beginning at 9:00PM PST (04.00 GMT). The ad is a mix of live and computer-animated footage, but it won't include any in-game shots.

I was able to get in and signed up, after submitting my info, next page was blank with Microsoft copyright line at the bottom. Not sure if my info went through or I'm expecting more to fill out. :(

It wasn't a horrible commercial, but it wasn't super either

I think it's nice they hired an outside studio to do the CG and then used it for marketing. Keeps most every developer at Bungie working on the game and not on creating little demos to put out and wow people. As long as no one believes that's in game at least

Yes its CG but I liked it and thought that shield he put up then running towards the battle was was pretty cool. Hope I get in the Beta.

Only link so far.

Ya, but luckily they'll just look like idiots considering even Microsoft and Bungie have said it's not in game at all

Naturally we don’t want to spoil the fun but we did want to clear the air on a few points up front to set your expectations appropriately. As the press release mentions, this ad will feature CG scenes that are being built by a 3rd party agency (known as Digital Domain). Now you may be thinking to yourself – “CG!? But Bungie doesn’t do CG!” – and you would be correct… until now.

Maybe the fanboys will believe the company they love so dear rather than looking like asses

Ahh come on. Almost anyone watching that will know it's not in game. And Bungie has even said its just a vision of what a ôlive action spectacle" in the Halo universe would look like.

That's about as in game as PS3 Killzone 2 videos.

That's impossible.

True halo fans check bungie.org once in a while at least. They told us loooing time ago that the upcoming ad would be 60 seconds long and partly Live Action, partly CGI. All the idiots (be it the so-called "Halo fans" or other fools) saying that it's ingame or that it's disappointingly short, hasn't been following the news for a while.

I think it's awesome, nice to see that the assault rifle from Halo 1 is back :)

It is a good thing though that Bungie tells people its CG even thought it's obvious. Too bad the makers of Killzone 2 couldn't do the same.

when they say finish the fight, are they saying this is the last halo we are going to see?

Halo 3 is final chapter of the triology. So yeah. But that doesn't mean we won't see more Halo games, but with brand new story and probably different direction.

Partially because Halo 2's ending was so abrupt, and we couldn't "Finish the Fight."

But this is a conclustion of a story arc, so this might be a conclustion of the Halo portion of the universe, but who knows, they have enough in the Halo Bible to last generations.
