OK, so this announcement and vidoc is cool on several fronts:

  1. If you have a specially-marked copy of Crackdown (and I do), you'll be able to download and play the beta.
  2. The graphics look awesome.
  3. It's HALO!
  4. The folks at Bungie have a way with names. First, there was the mansierre (don't ask), then the manbag. Now, thanks to the intrepid developers at Bungie, we have the man-cannon, a new mode of transport in the Halo universe. Can't wait to try it.
  5. Did I mention IT'S HALO!!!
