    Oh. My. God. :O

    Very cool marketing ploy by MS...can't wait to see what happens next!

    thread moved to Console Gaming

    A comment from "Dana's Blog"

    Very interesting indeed...

    edit: Basically the whole "blog" and the ilovebees.com site have lots of hints, they are all over the place...I think I'm going to be up all night looking through :D

    further edit: hmm, apparently there are two countdowns to look forward too: July 27, and August 24!

    Surprisingly no - I am a self-proclaimed God of sarcasm, but this escapes my wrath ... it reminds me (a little) of the simulated virus that used to be on iwin.com, cool stuff :)

    Google does this sort of thing all the time ;) Actually was a story about a hidden puzzle last week or the week before.

    Well, this didn't bring as much attention as MS/Bungie has. :p

    It's genius though...

    I don't see why some people call Halo lame but it's one of the best console FPS's ever. I like it. ;) :)

    xie you dont like Halo? Have you ever played it with a bunch of friends? the multiplayer mode is tyte, the single player is actually just as good.

    there are a few speculations to whatthe countdown on the site means, the first number could be the end of the beta testing and the second is most likely when HALO2 will go gold.

    I've tried to play the game a couple of times and its just ... blah :) I guess for some people it's crack .. for others it's trash .. to each their own.

    The countdown could also mean the release of the single player demo. I doubt Halo 2 will come out before Nov. 9. It could mean anything really, but I am hoping for the demo prediction. Why? Because the next issue of OXM(Official Xbox Mag), comes out on Aug. 24, which is when the countdown ends...too much of a coincidence? :p

    True.

    I think that all of this is turning out to be a hoax. :(
    Nothing has happened so far.
