I'd normally assume this was a typo, but it was written three times.

Presumably the game (or at least the marketing) will be very expensive.

I guess it makes sense they would want a new system seller level IP on the nextbox thats on the same level of Gears and Halo.

That being said "AAAA" is pretty dumb.
