The only thing is you said United Allied Emirates instead of United Arab Emirates. Easy enough to do if you don't know what UAE stands for (and that's how it's often written) and I sort of just wrote it off, but now it's apparently a copy pasta job, I'm not so sure. ;)

HMMM. I WONDER

seriously, it may be nothing, but if you're surprised as to why people are skeptical about stuff like this, look to Microsoft's consistent behavior that is still ongoing. The endless lies, deceptions, manipulations. They only have themselves to blame for the skepticism

truth..... been on neogaf for about 4 years myself, which isnt nearly as long as some other guys, but compared to other leaks this shit is setting off all sorts of bells....
my favorite leaks are the guys who people know work at Sony/MS, we know what project they are on, and they just give winks and nods, uietly confirming the existence of projects

It was UAE from the charter, and I typed it out. I'm not worldly.

It's not like most of this news is hugely surprising other than Halo 2 Anniversary and some of the white SKU shit (and release dates), so it's also not like anyone thinks this news is so extraordinary it can't be true. We just want to know what's actually going on. There is some weird-ass behavior going on in GAF tonight.

Who said it does? Perhaps it's this. Perhaps it's the Halo TV show. Didn't we have somebody confirm it will be this year? Actually, I think ntkrnl said something about some live action stuff, but not what Speilburg is doing. Can't remember now.

Still, it was oddly obtuse of an answer.

And boom, MS knows who's cboat because they give the number 16 to only one guy.

not to mention cboat hasn't posted for awhile

Never change.

I think if someone leaks a very specific list of all of the countries with dates of when Sony was going to release PS4, in addition confirming new Uncharted, God of War, etc... confirms an unsurpsing new SKU....calls out other leakers....and its their first post....people would be just as suspicious

I own that I have sided with MS this past generation. I have a PS3 as well but my multiplats last gen were 360, and so far I only have XboxOne.

I stick around to try and be a little yin to GAF's yang.

Although If I am being completely unsensible, please call me out on it.

I don't think anyone is doing that. No one called him a shill, because he cannot be called a shill since he actually works for MS. And no one is certainly implying that these leaks are bad thing.

Let me reiterate some of the Halo stuff, as there is some confusion and I didn't lay all the cards down.

Two versions of H2A.

Collectors Edition with the Beta access, the Halo series (not the Blomkamp one)

War Collection with the above, as well as ports of Halo 3 & 4 for XB1.
