For now I'm saying it's a fake, would be sweet though to get a nice big announcement.

Most likely fake. Not registered to anybody important. http://www.whois.net/whois/...

Domain was created 10 days ago

3GenGames2927d ago (Edited 2927d ago )

Agreed. Looking at that sites HTML I can really say it's not any sort of Microsoft site at all, not even close. It's fake, whatever it was even supposed to be for supposedly.

Probably a countdown to a 3-minute commercial thanking someone named Mikey for all the gaming he does.

kaveti66162927d ago

ha.

I hated that commercial. It made gamers look really pathetic.

knifefight2927d ago

The overwhelming praise for it is what made gamers look *extra* pathetic though.
I can't imagine any other industry in which a company could so cleanly pull off advertising advertisements and making commercials about commercials.

@kaveti6616

How so? please enlighten me. A commercial that was intended to thank gamers somehow made them look bad? Tell that to 10mil hits it got on youtube

on topic: bubbles LOOOL mikey

kaveti66162927d ago (Edited 2927d ago )

Well, in my opinion, the commercial was praising a gamer for all the time and effort he put into completing digital tasks.

Anyone outside of the gaming circle who watched the ad must have perceived people who play games as a bunch of pathetic humans who spend way too much time playing way too many games.

Sony was thanking gamers for playing games, but really what they're saying is, "Thank you for giving us money and being loyal to us."

People outside of the gaming circle would have seen it that way, I believe.

I also don't like it when people on this site say things like, "So many games. My wallet is crying." I'm not sure if they're being serious. I hope they're just playing around because I question the intelligence of a person who would spend a lot of money on games at any one time.

People who are not moderate with their hobbies can lose sight of other things, and in conclusion, that commercial made it seem like gamers in general played tons of games, which I think is pathetic.

No offense meant to anyone who considers themselves hardcore gamers, but if you do spend most of your free time playing games, then you should probably put the controller down and do something else. Read a book, go outside, go to a club, go to a party, go jogging, go hiking, go to a museum, go see a film, go hang out with your friends IRL, go to the library, go to a skate park, go to a designated graffiti area and make some public art, etc.

In reality, you accomplish very little by playing video games. Sony's commercial is an underhanded appraisal of video gamers as loyal peons.

andibandit2927d ago

TO MICHAEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!

ffs Sony finally spends some money on advertising and it's not even promoting a game like Uncharted 3 or Killzone. To hell with Michael, i want more people online so start promoting those games, cause they arent gonna promote themselves.

"It made gamers look really pathetic"

N4G makes gamers look much worse to be honest.

If its real, don't get too excited. These kinda things are usually huge letdowns.

gamer12322927d ago

It would be sick to have an announcement, but the domain name seems a bit, out of the ordinary. 3601029?
I get the 360 part, but after that, idk. But yeah I'm gonna say fake, but unfortunately so.

MoXxXi2927d ago

Maybe because when the timer goes out it will be 10/29? Or damn close to it... SMH

jvanik2926d ago

That'd be cool, that day's my birthday.

aviator1892927d ago

Interesting, and it certainly looks legit, but I don't know...it might be fake.
