    Maybe Splinter Cell 2 news?... naww... probably not big enough. You're probably right that it's something hardware related.

    Jet Set Radio Online and Shenmue 3

    That would be big enough for me [​IMG]

    A rechargeable bluetooth controller with a docking station? Or maybe a re-release of Halo with XBL support.

    Some 'Grand Theft Auto' title?

    Hosted gameplay for XBox Live games?

    A decent steering wheel? [​IMG]

    Online virtual sex?


    I have to guess some kind of exclusive title. There's no way they could get a scoop on a aquisition before the public knew.

    A few things you guys metioned

    1-there is some new splinter cell 2 info in this issue. Nothing huge
    2-There is no Halo 1.5 . The head of microsoft gaming says so in this issue. It was just a rumor. Nothing new for halo until 2 comes out
    3-As much as i love the series Shen-mue III and jet set online arent exactly "Big as Halo 2"

    I'm guessing it's related to GTA.

    I'm placing my bets on GTA. They were really talking it up in this issue, so it seems like a likely candidate.

    I'd rather it was wireless controllers though.

    I'm not too familiar with any gaming magazines, but is it typical for a print mag to have the scoop on something 'big' before it's out on the net?

    In most industries, this is pretty rare these days, the net is usually the place to find out about anything first.

    Given their official status and tie with Microsoft, I think it's plausable they could be the first one to release some Xbox news...

    That said, I'm sure it's a teaser and won't live up to the hype of being the biggest thing since Halo 2.

    Ok, I'm changing my mind. I bet it's Half-Life 2. Considering how it suddenly appeared for the PC, perhaps a similar unveiling could take place for the Xbox.

    Half-life 2 would be sweet. As far as GTA, one must ask.....Why?

    What would be the big deal about wireless controlers? Plenty on the market. Do you mean standard? Not going to do much for current owners.

    Half Life 2 or Doom III would be great news...especially if they said it was coming this year. But Halo 2 by Christmas would be a godsend.
