If you're a fan of the Halo series, make sure you wake up early on December 4th. It seems that starting next Monday, people located in North America will be able to participate in the multiplayer beta. Bungie's goal, of course, is to smash out as many bugs as possible as well as find potential flaws or imbalances in online play before the game goes gold. To sign up, visit the Halo 3 site on the 4th. You can read the media alert from Bungie for more info.
