A strange website has appeared that contains a countdown that might reveal something new for Microsoft's Xbox 360.
The domain has been redirected now, read the story for the update!
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
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.
xbox69 perhaps ??
Yeah tables don't really scream, professional, anymore.

Probably a countdown to a 3-minute commercial thanking someone named Mikey for all the gaming he does.
ha. I hated that commercial. It made gamers look really pathetic.
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
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.
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.
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.
Maybe because when the timer goes out it will be 10/29? Or damn close to it... SMH
That'd be cool, that day's my birthday.
Interesting, and it certainly looks legit, but I don't know...it might be fake.
Steven Seagal Kinect game hell yeah!!!!!
Step one, eat donut. Step two, stop a train. Step three, eat two donuts. Step four, save president while he's on a plane. Step five, eat a dozen donuts. Step six, punch a dude in the throat. Achievement Unlocked, please wait for DLC to complete Under Seige 2.
You forgot the sexually harass costar on a ship step.
Please don't be kinect related. Me want some games!! I'm going to choose to believe it is legit.
For now I'm saying it's a fake.. it certainly looks legit, but I don't know.
ok i'm saying it's legit.. it certainly looks fake, but i don't know either.
Is it the new dashboard update?
Well we can rule out Xbox 720.
A countdown for microsoft! oh magically bounty thus they reveal! More motion controlled goodness, because im clearly inconvienianced by a controller! Perhaps more services which I will never use like Facebook on my xbox! positively fantastic stuff!
most likely fake, but those symbols remind me of Mirror's Edge.
i hope its not about a video thanking some kid. SMH , sony
Most likely kinect related
Release of the new dashboard public preview
I'll keep an eye on it, but it looks fake to me.
something retarded for kinect.
haha at the disagrees. If you go to the link now, it says "Xbox 360 2011 Invitational" haha disagrees, I was right! It's lame kinect stuff!
It says "KINECT for Xbox360 INVITATIONAL" now... and it's all in Korean... I'm so confused.
man that was actually kind of funny. But then again Microsoft is really pushing Kinect, too bad it's exactly what their fanbase DOESN'T care about.
It's a 2 day gaming event in Korea. Though it is sponsored by Kinect and Xbox it is a competitive game event. There will be Halo competitions and others. Also, last years Halo Champion will be in attendance to school some people. The event is an open house event where anyone can go and just play games and sign up for free stuff. Told that free USB device is given to all people that show up. Korea is pushing for a console revival as it had jumped ship and went PC on everyone awhile back. A lot of Xbox fans in Korea these days. Mainly due to the competitive nature of Halo online, and some shows that promote the competition.
I am just gonna say...it will be Kinect related if its real... otherwise... fake
kinect 2 watch a bet thats what it is
Final Fantasy VS 13 countdown
Xbox Live will go from $59.99 to $69.99! (And remarkably....many gamers will still believe/argue that its worth it.)
more great super pooper kinect stuff? :)
Kinectimals vs dance central. LMAO! Lets get ready to shake our buttocks in front of the TV folks. Americans love to do that I believe. God Bless America! LMAO!
You keep saying that... we get it, you don't like the Kinect. Move on.
I love Kinect!! Who will not love to shake ones ass in front of the television. It is the reason why the gaming industry is taken so seriously. I am super excited about the next kinectimals. Dont know why you feel I dont like Kinect! I got a new LED tv to enjoy Kinect games in their wonderful glory!
You say the same thing in all your kinect posts... do you have a problem with your ass?
I was hoping for a new game announcement (Sigh) oh well.
i wish xbox live would go down, i cant even subscribe living like on minimum wage.
Its $60 a year aka $1 a week or 30-40 a year if youre smart. Your user states praise for a ps3 exclusive, im having a hard time believing your statement isnt biased.
Don't worry about this guy hes just you're average troll....and broke one at that lol.
Sorry about your job... you can find deals that make it $40 a year, or less.
More Kinect crap most likely.Or a Live price increase.Or perhaps more Halo games.
&@) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol XD
Puede ser el nuevo consola de microsoft. Preparaos en deshacer de vuestros consolas. Translation It good be a new console by Microsoft. Prepare to get rid of your consoles. Just kidding. XperiaRay
ZOMG a Korean exposition for Kinect games! Ugh. So not only is it for something lame, it's foreign. Wake me when it's something for the 720...
RROD... haha no no I joke
