Ok the final product is out. that means its time to go back and compare differences between the early days and now.

First off, the leaked pics. the topic as since then died and the pics have been lost if anyone can drudge those up? preferably without the watermark.

Any official screens from when they were showing that piss yellow ODST hud would be nice too.

I also found the Pre-plubic beta video from kotaku sometime back. i can't seem to recognize that cutscene that is talking in the back round. Seems "Murder mode" Aka assassinations were supposed to be on the D-pad at one point.

Also anything from the public beta differences back in may would help too.

Alright, lets go. We need something to do since all were doing is bitching about another lawlsawnik port...

Looks like X-CulT is a bit fucked up lately. No uploaded images seem to show either on the Wiki or from Newsx, not sure if others are affected.

Either way, those shots are still on the server. I zip'd them and uploaded them to Megaupload here: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=2Q2QVW7S

A few differences I can see, the title screen is quite different, however I think that's just because the build on show here is just the campaign, hence why there's no options for things like Matchmaking, Firefight or Forge. There's loads of temporary place-holder text, untextured and I don't believe used objects on ONI-Sword Base, one of the shots shows 4 Plasma Grenades being held which you can't do in the campaign, only custom multiplayer games. The squad-mate icons are also more circular, in the final, they're more elongated with rounded edges. I also think the design of the DMR is quite different as well.

Loads of changes from this build to final, makes me question how old this build is...

I also just noticed as well the "Privacy" option on the pause menu. Seeing that on leaked screenshots always has to make me smile.

Probably one of the first alphas. its a shame that partnerNET doesn't keep stuff like this around so we can take a look back on it again.

Anyways remember the first trailer / first cutscene we ever saw in reach?:


That was changed in the final as well:

can't begin to tell you how long it took me to find a video with no customzation on the armor

Though i kind of wished they kept the lone wolves track made the mood for the WP trailer.

Also bungie was kind enough to keep up their concept art:

If anyone minds to zip those that would be great.

@SSUK: the MU link seems to not be working. mind mirroring?

Found that screenshot of the yellow HUD as well:

Also, Emile with an AR?:

If i remember correctly he has a shotgun always think carter is holding one too. guess at one point all of them were just holding ARs except for jeorge whos holding the turrent in the alpha shots.

I remember running accross this video during the reach beta days:

It showed off allot of the armor that was and wasn't in the beta. also the rocket hog was in the beta just unused.

Last thing. this is one of the videos i found of the reach beta's "dead purple clones" glitch where dead purple clones would spawn and reveal different helmets:

Click to 1:28 if it doesn't work for you.

Can't find any screens of them so i'll get back to you.

This one has to be more an Easter Egg than a glitch. Still interesting.

Also lol at the beta spawning people in odd places. I remember when the beta spawned me off the map straight into death pits.

Just realized something with that yellow HUD pic. what IS that armor ability? i don't recongize it at all.

Also, was it ever told why that one part of the pic was blurred out?

EDIT: why won't those damned big images shrink? don't we have that feature?

Armour lock? Perhaps? It does give out an EMP when you come out of it.

The blurred out bit is probably debug information or the more likely the player's name. Or both. There's a few shots like it online.

And the image shrinking is only on the Wiki. Not the forums.

We should really have shrinking here.


The beta intro:


I'm wondering if that first person driving mode was planned but scrapped? it would've been a neat feature and with a little modding it was possiable for it to be done in H3.

Bump.

The first Vidoc by bungie:


Loads of alpha/beta stuff in there. wtf was up with that sniper rifle?! Also that unknown or beta armor lock can be seen with the blue HUD and the AR didn't have allot of detail in its ammo counter yet.
