This goes exactly with what the SI is telling us. "REMAIN CALM" "KEEP IT CLEAN" "USE STAIRWAY (emphasizing people running around in panic)"

Assuming this isn't some ploy (which I don't think it is), this doesn't make any sense, this actually kills a lot of goodwill and hype MS had going after the FF13 announcement.

It just doesn't make sense to cancel though.

You don't just being a viral campaign months in advance just to let it flop out within the last 12 hours.

It has to be fake.

If not... this is seriously Bungie's fault on the matter, they shouldn't have started this viral campaign if they didn't have the Publsher's go ahead and promise in the bag.

They could have stood up for their fans. It's as simple as,
publish->hey we don't think you should make this announcement now, why don't you pull it?
bungie->um, no.

We already know that Microsoft/EA/Activision/whoever suck, but now we know that Bungie cares about their fans just as much as those guys do, which is close to nothing as long as they can get soccer moms to buy their shiny boxes at wal-mart. Once they lose money a few quarters in a row, it's all about the fans. As long as they're selling, unmitigated arrogance.

Reverse psychology. Bungie will never catch on.

Are you shitting me? Bungie has been carefully laying out this breadcrumb trail for months, and they've always been good to their fans. It makes no sense at all that they would be the ones to pull the plug on this.

Now, if MS wanted to pull the plug on this they have many reasons to. Use your head before you try to be an internet tough guy and "call out Bungie" and tell us to "stop giving them a pass."

Yeah, I'm sure Square just trashed MS event and announced FFXIII without their knowledge. Microsoft must have been pretty darn surprised. Kudos for acting so fast and being able to cancel this on such a short notice.

If it was a Microsoft game, I can understand. They were waiting to unveil it in case Sony or Nintendo had some big megatons. Since neither one really had anything to combat the FFXIII announcement, they could be saving it for another day.

There must be a logical reason for the publisher to cancel it on such short notice. Otherwise, like he's saying, it's Bungie's fault for going through with a viral countdown and not having full confirmation from the publisher. As I said before, don't get hyped, you don't get disappointed. People are acting like they're children who woke up on Christmas morning and were told Santa Clause didn't exist.

How the hell could Microsoft do this?!?! How can they pull the carpet out from under a months long campaign, with less than 12 hours to go?

Bungie, how could they let this happen. This is much their fault as Microsoft. I know that Microsoft is their publisher, but this is a huge betrayal to not only the fans but to Bungie itself. Microsoft threw Bungie under the bus and tarnished their representation. If I was in Bungie's shoes, I would not stand for this shit and I would go a long with the plan as scheduled.

Fuck Microsoft.

This is kinda retarded. It'd be better just to fucking bury the thing and pretend it never happened than make an open letter like that. I doubt whoever this mystery (lol) publisher is appreciates this kind of attention. It's a dick move on Bungie to both build the hype and to pass the buck.

Are you retarded? Microsoft obviously knew about the announcement WAY ahead of time, and Bungie set everything up for it. And now they're forcing Bungie not to make it. Bungie has to be SO pissed because they're being forced to let down their fans by Microsoft. Bungie has been going through a lot to get the community hyped for this, and Microsoft just screwed it up if this is indeed real. We'll find out tomorrow morning.
