    If you look here there is a countdown currently at 3 days and 19 hours. If this started at 3 days and 20 hours then that would make 92 hours. 168 could be 1 day and 68 hours which is also 92 hours. Therefore this all points to an announcement in 92 hours.

    Well that's my guess anyway and i'm not sure what the announcement may be!

    To be honest i'm sure that the marketing for the 360 will become pretty intense soon! Although I don't really see the point considering that they seem to have sold evey console they can make (and then some) in pre-orders before launch anyway! I'd leave it until they have more stock in before they turn up the marketing as it seems a bit pointless advertising something that will be sold out everywhere! :rolleyes:

    I hate myself for knowing this, :suicide:
    but 0168 in hexadecimal is equal to 360 in decimal.

    hence the hex168 site.


    here's a conversion page to try for yourselves http://www.comsc.ucok.edu/~mcdaniel/bin-dec.html

    Incase you're interested 360 in binary is 101101000 :lesson:

    So it is, infact 168 alone is 360 - no need for the 0.

    nice one :clap:

    if you type halo there's a yellow halo around the globe

    also, i miss typed halo as hallo and got a pumpkin !
    same as when you type halloween

    I've just ha a conversation with Marco, Paul, Phil & Kris on there!
    It seems to be a kind of twisted chatroom. Certain keywords will change the globe's apperance but the responces at the bottom of the screen are just those of other people.

    That's pretty cool I must say, I bet it took some filming if it's not faked using CGI. Looks convincing though but who's to say these days.

    I've started seeing a lot of newspapers doing articles on the 360 but nothing yet on television.

    Have the TV ads started anywhere yet?
