The Halo 3 Beta which came with the newly released game Crackdown for Xbox 360 was supposed to be released around 8:00 a.m (Eastern Time). It is believed it may have been the catalyst, causing instantaneous manic depression in teens and adults.
The Problem began when thousands took off work and school to play the "Demo" of Halo 3, but when they got to the menu of Crackdown and than proceeded to load the Beta there was a problem and it did not load.
Microsoft made an announcement that they would hurry and get all of the bugs worked and it should not take more than a couple of hours. I write this at 1:02 Standard Eastern Time and only less than two hours ago did it finally work.
Reports of thousands of cases of depressive people visiting hospital emergency rooms and clinics world wide has sparked some concern. Experts believe that because people had taken the day off work or school in order to download the game, they became depressed once they realized just how sad and pathetic their little gamer lives are, and how worthless they really are.
