    • donkeyjrplus

      weird. i saw this same comment like 2 weeks ago.

      • Realmusik Recordz

        i did also…why would they call it 36? just a typo. The name of the machine shouldnt be a secret anywayz nor the way it looks!! They should tease people with those to elements. Show people how it looks first…and the name of the machine. And we will see wat it can do later!!! thats how you draw people in!!! and the slogin should be catchy and controversial!! man i should work for microsoft!!!lol…major nelson ..send me a

      36 thousand spent in next gen IP’s.

    Major, the ad on the dashboard for the sony experia has people playing a playstation. it just seems a bit weird to me that an advert shown on the dashboard has the competition in full plain view. lol

    • TonyLN

      It’s because M$ knows Sony is going down hard this generation and want to give them a fighting chance… And because Sony is willing to pay big bucks to get us to see their product. Their desperate.

        you know the ps3 has outsold the 360 right even though the 360 came out a year earlier and has the sales included from people who bought more than 1 console because of RROD.

        • ryder4life22187

          You’ll never give up. So it’s ok to include that people bought more than 1 console for the 360 but you don’t include how many people bought more than 1 PS3. I know a handful of people that bought more than 1 PS3 due to YLOD, laser on launch console quitting, and overheating.

          It hasn’t in the US in quite some time though.

    • Bennijin

      That’s nothing, the Champions League game was an Xbox exclusive (remember those?) but it had PLAYSTATION 3 on some of the pitch-side adverts due Sony being a sponsor of the Champions League.

      Funnily enough Microsoft actually allowed this when it could have been blocked. For example back when Arsenal were sponsored by SEGA, Sony refused to let the PS1/2 versions of FIFA games put the SEGA/Dreamcast logos on the team’s strips.

      • Bush O Connor

        i never knew that about sega and sony. they were the main rivals at the start of the playstations life. thats bad on sonys part about fifa. altho it doesnt bother me that pro evo has very few actual team licences/names.

  • Russell Gorall

    With stuff like this you could have a Microsoft game beating Minecraft late this year.

  • Curtis Isabell

    now just let halo custom games to be joinable to the public, give us a match browser and let us start a match with our maps and our rules and have random people join as we go.

    then let them rate our maps, and have options to download them for themselves. so they can do the same.

    • Bush O Connor

      this is an option that should have been in halo since 3, custom game matchmaking. i suppose map packs and paid DLC is the reason it was never added.

    • Dean Gallop

      I doubt they could do that with Halo 4, I hope they do it for Halo 5.

      It’s awesome that they gave us this map for free though, I bet it will be the most popular forge map ever. It’s what everyone has been asking for. Plus putting a green screen in there was awesome thing I never even thought about.

      • Daniel

        Only free because it lacks achievements. If it had achievements, it wouldn’t be free. FACT. Oh another reason is because it’s a dying game. Barely reaches 50k players. Sad.

  • Russell Gorall

    Like I have been saying, for Halo 4 to be the true Minecraft killer you have to give it away for free then pay people by the hour to play it.

  • Bush O Connor

    me too and my brothers are the same, even my mates have bought more than two. i also believe that player for player the console sales would be evens, if not for RROD, bans and the modding scene on the 360 which shifts a lot of units.(it saved the psp at one stage)
