http://www.hex168.com/

I'll let the cryptographers among us decrypt the jibber jabber on that page.  smile

Just using my geek power to point out that hex 168 (0x168) is = 360.

Along with that rumor there is also MS possibly announcing if game prices for 3rd party titles are going to be $59.99 for sure or not.

I think it'd be pretty jacked up to hype something like this.  

HEY!  LOOK!  THESE GAMES COST YOU MORE NOW!  Why aren't you excited?

LOL!! That would be very very messed up. I think he's saying it might be a universal 49.99 type announcement. Either way, I want launch titles!!

I think at this point, we ALL are curious to hear the launch titles. 40 days and counting.

Though I wouldn't mind for the announcement to be $50 3rd party games, either.

Yep, that is what I meant...it's just one of those rumors flying about since no one has said anything about price point for 3rd party stuff.  1st party stuff is $49.99 (except for the PDZ SE which is $59.99, but the regular version is $49.99), EB and Gamestop have just had the price point of $59.99 for 3rd party titles since they started putting games up for pre-sale.

Remember, rumor was that Xbox Live was going to be more expensive (also $59.99 per year) when EB and Gamestop put the pre-orders up, then Microsoft came out with the actual price which is the same as it is currently.

Now I'm terrible at math, but isn't 0 x 168 0?

Or is this some kind of geek higher math thing?

Hexadecimal, also known as Base 16.  When you look at a MAC address on a network card and its something like 000b.243c.123d.af3b  that is hex. smile

1-9 = 1-9
10 -> 15 = a, b, c, d, e, f

Actually now I think these symbols are going to start appearing everywhere --  apparently at 4 major football games on Saturday as an example --  and maybe you are supposed to take a picture of the symbol if you see it and write a report of what you saw and send them in.

Give me a freakin break.    Could they make it any more of a pain in the ass?

Fellow - lol, did you see where G4TV was saying that the original "special" faceplates from E3 don't even fit the final Xbox 360?  KD - you had one, any idea if this is true?  You know, the one with the green cirles?

Also... that contest is just too much - I'd rather pay for the system than try and figure that out.   :?

1-9 = 1-9
10 -> 15 = a, b, c, d, e, f

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hexadecimal


Erm. Let's not forget the important character 0.

decimal is from deca (means 10)
hexadecimal is from hex and decimal (6and10 or "16")

smile Normal math (common use) is decimal or Base10. Basically, it means each character is out of a possible 10 combinations. Hex extends it by 6 characters to be a total of 16 values in one character. Since there isn't a common character following, they substitute letters to mean :
0 = zero
1-9 = one to nine
A = ten
B = eleven
C = twelve
D = thirteen
E = fourteen
F = fifteen
There is no sixteenth character; 0 (zero) counts (although it's just a placeholder for null).

Remember grade 4 math, with the "ones" column, the "tens" column, "hundreds" column, etc? This is how it breaks down:

Base10 is 0,1-9  ... so the number 4023 = (4x1000) + (0x100) + (2x10) + (3x1)
Base16 is 0,1-9,A-F ... so the number FB7 = (15x16) + (11x16) + (7x1)

FB7 is the Hex form of 4023. You can doublecheck by running windows calculator, and turning it to scientific. Type in 4023 and then on the left click on the Hex radio button.
