Heh, I won't even begin to touch that statement. It's funny how you bash the system for having no good games and then turn around and wish one of them were on your platform of choice '

Honestly, Microsoft should rename themselves to blockheadosoft.
Why couldn't they put the effort into a GAME OPTIMISED OS and enhanced gaming computers.
Sony have dominated the console markets in UK & US and it's simply because PS2 is the best. People don't want graphics in consoles, they want games and they want something that looks cool; I've seen elephants smaller than the XBOX.
Anyway, don't female dog at me because I hate consoles. I prefur PCs all the way. It's just I've got an old PS2 that I play with mates now and again.
HALO2 should be out for PC.

Good find, but it's not up yet... maybe that's what the countdown points to...?

Smart one. Now these might hold some helpful info:

Hmm...interesting. Doesn't mean that something won't be released at the certain time, but interesting nonetheless...
If you set your computer clock to the countdown date and time, the countdown starts to count upwards. Also, as teh coding suggests, when reached a certain time/date, it will randomly select a new date. So thus, it will never end.

This is the honey pot they got:
"ARGN got a very odd Fedex package just now. It was from Margaret's Honey, ostensibly in San Francisco, and contained the honey-filled bear to the left.
Lo and behold, in the honey were 9 cutout alphabet letters. I've heard of alphabet soup, but alphabet honey?? Ahem....Anyway, the letters in question were: o-i-v-e-e-s-b-l-e. Anagramming the letters gives us, among other things, I LOVE BEES.
So........www.ilovebees.com. Strange way to start an ARG, but that's what it looks like. Things are not what they appear to be at ilovebees.com.
Stealth launch. I love it.
Two rabbitholes in one day..........weird.
[EDIT: We've dubbed this game SPiDeR for now (System Peril Distributed Reflex from the text on the site). A lot better than calling the game I Love Bees. Also, it should be noted that there are indications that this game may be part of another current game, but we don't have enough information yet. We shall see.]"

Tanzania (Zanzibar)Not to mention there was a report by Frankie stating this:
The Potential of Mangrove Conservation in relation to Beekeeping
...Traditionally, beekeeping activity is dominated by men who practice primitive methods of honey harvesting and handling. Traditional beekeeping does not make use of the correct equipment or modern techniques. Instead, honey is harvested by the use of fires or a live torch, which burns the insects to death. The planned project will train women to practice in the modern techniques for beekeeping which will give bees permanent settlement (home) and improve honey production.
This week I was recruited for a top secret mission to escort Halo 2 Zanzibar discs to a special event taking place in the Big Apple. As you've read in other updates, Bungie is uber focused on security our builds are never made available to anyone or any group outside of our Studio. So, when the marketing folks stumble across an opportunity to promote Halo 2 and a build is needed, we're called on to deliver the goods and make sure not a single trace is left behind. Duty called and I endured 11 hours of cross country air travel for what amounted to about 1 hour of actual Halo 2 involvement. I can't reveal the specifics of this mission but if it works out, the fruits of our efforts will be revealed sometime in CENSORED. Ask me about it then and I can share some stories! Equally exciting was just strolling through Times Square and getting stopped by dozens of people who noticed my Halo 2 t-shirt. "Halo 2 is going to rock!!" "When is Halo 2 coming out!?" "Can I have a free shirt!?" "Sweet soul patch dude!" It's cool to see so many random people familiar with and fired up about Halo 2. And no, you can't have my shirt.So Zanzibar has ties to bees? Something big going down with the distribution of the Zanzibar demo? We could very well see this short multiplayer demo released to the public on August 24th. I thought Bungie had said there was no way a demo would ever be released but more and more clues are pointing the other way.

It's quite possible, but who knows? It might be interesting. Besides, it's my summer vacation from school, and since the job market is so bad near my house, (grumble) I have yet to get any kind of employment. Thus, I waste my time on these things.

Indeed, although I've never seen anything this in depth. I'm not really expecting a demo or early release or anything at all really, perhaps a new trailer or something. But it's fun to try and suspect either way

But seriously... little web scandals are pretty common.
