Here’s some more rumors floating around the net, some good, some bad.
1) Halo 3 will be shown in the form of a trailer. I think it’s bound to happen, Microsoft’s Steve Ballmer confirmed work on Halo 2/3 back in a press release for Office 2003
” We’ll show you a capability inside the Office System today that delivers on what we call Information Rights Management. We’re working on the next version — I hate to tell you this confidentially but I’ll have to swear you to secrecy now — we’re working on the next version of Xbox right now and we’re working on Halo 2 and Halo 3, the two newest versions of the game.”
I think a trailer is most likely (maybe a demo). I also think that since the next “Free Xbox Live Gold” time will be during E3, I think it’s a safe bet that we’ll see some trailers, and demos, fresh from the show.
2. The analog stick attachment (Nunchuck) for the Revolution controller, will feature the same motion sensors as the Revolution controller. I’m not sure I understand it totally, but several places say that they are sure that this will happen. I think it would be smart in cases such as the dual RevMote set up (you wouldn’t need 2), and in the case of Zelda (RevMote=Sword, Analog stick=Move, Nunchuck Motion=Sheild). But, on the other hand, people use the example of using it to strafe. Now, here’s where grab my 360 controller, and TV remote, and try to do what is described. It’s like trying to pat your head and rub your stomach. Plus the cord would get in the way. A while back, Nintendo said that you could switch hands of the controller mid game (if your lefty friend wants to play, or whatever.) Now if you could do that, what would keep you from actually strafing in front of your TV? I don’t know, as always we’ll have to wait and see.
3. The Final Secret of the Revolution is Force Feedback. I really can’t see Nintendo NOT including this, but I doubt the Final secret will be this.
In another story, the all knowing IGN has Craig out meeting with another developer for the Revolution, Toy’s for Bob, and he’s wearing the same clothes as the last Pre-E3 event we saw pictures from. While this may not seem like much, his shirt reads “HMD” which stands for “Head Mounted Display”. People are having a field day with this one, saying that it confirms a Visor for the Revolution, but I think it’s a trick. IGN want’s to lead us down the wrong trail.
13 day’s till we know the truth. Until then let’s all just speculate.
