News on Bungie’s site has detailed that the multiplayer on Halo 3 is well on the way, with tests already in progress.
"Lars, one of the new(er) multiplayer designers, has a regular multiplayer test in session now - that happens every day - and with surprisingly polished-looking graphics, although I'm told a lot of the textures and decorator objects are just placeholder at the moment. Could have fooled me," states the update.
It looks like you won’t need to own one of them new fangled HD TVs too, as Bungie have been testing the game on "old-school 4:3 480i NTSC TV sets, which tells you two things.
"One is that we're making sure this game looks awesome on non-HD sets, and two, that there is always a crazy rush to get to the sets that are HD during those sessions."
