After a group of modders dug into the Halo 3 Beta code and seemingly discovered some embedded weapons and vehicles intended for the game's September release, we immediately set out to confirm the information for ourselves.

Another week, another report on the status of our favorite consoles over in the land of the rising sun. What've we got to say? It's another bummer week for Sony.
