Forums - Microsoft Discussion - September 25th rumor.

i have the feeling that a rumor from vgchartz will be true again...



Around the Network

Just to add to the hummmm on this.. anyone remember the leaked Halo 3 additional achievements last week? This one stood out... look at the description. So something is going down Sept 25th.. but it may just be halo 3 related or much more.

 There is almost certainly something going on around 9/25. What that is at this point who knows.



9/25 is probably when Halo Mythic comes out.

Remember the Bungie announcement that didn't come at E3?

Yep...  and MS said they wanted to hold off on the annoucement. Now perhaps they wanted to make sure everything else they had planned for a "re-launch" was going to be ready.  We should find out soon.. MS would want to hype this up so in the next few days I would expect something official or we can chalk this up to a dream.

The title update(number 2) for Halo 3 is released on 9/25. M$ made it official that any DLC costing a certain amount for a title could add 250 achievement points to a game. Bungie has released 2 map packs and there is apparently another one coming. This is where the 750 achievement points are coming from. Halo Mythic was just the build of the game that was at PAX.

Oh and where's the link?

Definitely not true if no site has enough balls to carry this story.

Out of curiousity are you serious, or are you just being sarcastic. Your question was answered in this thread on the front page all of what a week ago. Anyway if you are being serious go back through the thread, and if your being sarcastic damn its weak.

Free games?  This is M$ we're talkin' bout.

Assassin's Creed 2 exclusive when the first sold well on the PS3?

Sounds more like a fanboy wet dream rather than a reality.

Though if this is true it would be awesome. Might actually touch the XBOX...

For now, definitely in the most likely untrue rumour pile.

- Yeah, MS released free things before. Mostly DLC of some kind, a way to celebrate new things. If they want to mark that NXE (New Xbox Experience) so why not some free giveaways. They have the owner rights to some Xbox 1 games so why not release them for free? Cheap and good give away for them.

- AC 2 won't be exclusive, but maybe time exclusive. Woudn't suprise me, both MS and Sony likes to pay for that these days. Mirror Edge for PS3, Rock Band 2 for 360 and so on. So if AC 2, which is a big title, as been bought time exclusive for 360 it won't be a suprise.

As the poster said, it is a rumour. Most upcoming big things from MS has in some way been leaked before so why not this time also? FF XIII grab is like the only big thing from MS that wasen't leaked before the release.

My big thanks to the Dodece, I love rumours. If he's right he can be glad to be the first that told us and say, "I told u so" - If not, who cares?

Sounds good if true! I think it would revitalize the 360.
