Halo 3 Commercial up on Xbox Marketplace

Download

Right click “Save as…”

  • WMV (WMV Video)
So the Halo 3 'trailer/ad/commercial' went up on the Xbox Marketplace yesterday (after it played during Monday Night Football), so later that night I jumped onto my 360 to download it. Imagine my surprise when I found it that it costs money to download and watch a commercial... 150 points! I think that is only about $1.88 in 'real money', but still... sadly, I might end up paying for it, but I think I'll just wait for someone to upload a high resolution copy up onto the Internets for me... what about you?

Update: Major Nelson's posts about this say it is free and at least one on10 member downloaded it for free as well... so either I was too tired from coding last night and read it wrong or I ran into a momentary glitch.... I'll start pulling my foot out of my mouth now.

You can view the commercial online, if you can't wait to go home and download the 720p version.

    I downloaded it okay last night off live for no price.

    Maybe they charged for "silver" members instead of free for the "gold" members? But you're probably a gold member too...so maybe it was up for a price and they later changed it to free or the other way around.

    Hmmmm...

    Odd... I'll check again when I'm online, but I was pretty sure I saw it up for 150 pts

    I'll check too in a bit. Seems like it should be free. Charging for a video you can see for free online seems a little.... Sony Tongue Out

    Last night, both the 480p and 720p versions were free on XBL Marketplace. I'm not sure if they are still free, or not, but I hope they stay free.

    I missed the MNF airing, because of work, but I think the commercial is awesome! Even though it's not from the game, that CGI animation (and even the sound) was fantastic! I especially liked the force-field part =) Can't wait for Halo 3. Master Chief is a pimp!

    I checked it out and it's free. But the new Halo 3 theme is 150 so maybe that caused the confusion.
