Well, its August 24th and here we go, no Halo2. Obviously, free press generated by hacking never tells the truth, I feel bad for all those who beleive the silly M$/Bungie hype.

Ohh, come on, this is much more interesting than a Halo2 Demo.  How bland.

All these people running around trying to get the calls coming into payphones at specific coords trying to unlock audio clips on the site.

this is much more imaginative, it involves the fans, progresses the story, and it build hype.

This is from the same gang that did the AI web game, which was insidiously addictive and difficult. Man, was that one fun. smile

I haven't tried the coordinates, and I wasn't even able to figure out how some people were getting the answers, but there's always someone smarter than yourself. smile

there's no way any of this ties into Halo, but damn if the audio clips don't get you excited over whatever the hell it ends up being.

I would actually prefer an unannounced title being exposed via this method.


Anyone have a site that has what order to listen to all the clips together in? Because I've noticed that they all touch each other in one form. There's definately a whole audio story here, I'd love to see how to listen to these in order.

These people are doing so much just for halo2. Its sad, its one over-rated/great mulitplayer game. Relax people, its like Jesus was replaced with Master Cheif.

No, it's just the biggest x-box game release to date.

I for one welcome creative marketing campaigns such as this.  beats a crappy annoying one.  I was looking frorward to halo2 strictly for multiplayer on live, but now I'm actually interested in the story in single player.

It  makes sense to me, make your marketing into a game for your target audience so they get more excited about the game that you want to sell to them.

I just don't understand why people are dissing it so much.  I wish more marketing had this much thought and effort put into it.

I don't own Halo, and my only Console is an XBox.  I had no interest in Halo 2, but this ad campaign made me decide to add it to my Xmas list...
