That is odd. That video that plays definitely has a couple of quick flashes of the X-Box360 (during guys bouncing on balls in office and even quicker right have the "champagne" scene). And that ending imagery is damn sexual.  Myabe it means you can have sex with the 360?

I fooled around with it some this morning.   I really think this has something to do with International sales of XBOX 360.  Notice on the tree the US flag is not represented.  I clicked on the UK flag and it took me to some sort of quiz.   Will play around with it more this evening when I am home

I completed the quiz using the UK flag, but when you enter for getting the quiz correct it does not list the United States as a country.

okay, i messed around at some sites and this is a contest for Europeans




Going to put this in spoiler just in case someone wants to figure it out on there own


Spoiler for Hiden:
its a european only competition.

someone posted this in the LIVE forums::

"Its not that hard to work out, European only, competition, X05 is what, next week, closing date 27/09/05, the competition is to win tickets to the invite only X05 in Amsterdam."

sounds pretty plausable to me.


Actually, Origen is the U.S. (remember, they launch first) and the price is for a ticket to the U.S. launch. And yes, this is only for the Euro countries listed below.

Origen Terms & Conditions


Entrants must be residents of the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, Portugal or Greece and aged 18 or over. Winners may be required to provide proof of age and address.

Two prizes will be awarded across entrants from all of the participating countries. The two prizes consist of a one person trip to an event celebrating the launch of Xbox 360 in the United States for three nights in November 2005 (valued at approximately £3,000/€4,500). Exact dates to be confirmed by 1 November 2005.

The two prizes include return economy flights to the city hosting the event, three nights' accommodation, meals and transfers to and from the airport and to the event. The prize does not include insurance or other expenses incurred by the winners

Actually if you look in the terms of service it says exactly what it is.  It's a european only contest where you fill out a short quiz and two people will be chosen to attend a 360 launch party in the USA in November.  I don't know if it's supposed to be a big mystery or anything.

This has turned out to be one of the most silly, lame, underwhelming viral marketing campaigns of all time. If this is all it is, then color me unimpressed and a bit annoyed with all the hubbub.
