It looks like the deal with Halo 3 beta invites packaged in copies of Crackdown (known in Japan as Riot Act) is not exclusive to the USA. Microsoft announced the same promotion in Japan. Just like in the USA you have to have Xbox Live gold membership to use the beta because it’s online only. Since North America and Japan are getting this promotion it wouldn’t be too surprising if Europe got it too. With all these Halo 3 beta invitations floating around Bungie is going to get a good stress test and Microsoft is probably going to sell lots of copies of Crackdown.
