    Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg dropped the hint via an instant message session with GTR's Godfree. What the hell is this announcement about? We have no idea, only Greenberg's cryptic words, "we have a secret unveil for gamers around the world that I think will go down in video game history.

    Update: We've learned from Aaron Greenberg that the announcement will take place tomorrow between 12:30 and 1:30 pm Eastern Time. And, before this gets out of hand, we've heard rumblings that this announcement won't be huge, but that it should be relatively cool nonetheless.

    Oh, no. Tracks are already being backed.

    I really hope that "gamers around the world" doesn't mean "gamers in North America, with the release date for rest of the world TBA."

    I wonder what it'll be, though. We still have the keyboard coming up, and wasn't there an XNA contest where they would commercialize the winner's game?

    It's well known - MS has own globe! USA also has own globe!... There are no God except Money, there are no countries except USA. Nothing new... Sad

    If you stumbled and fell down, it doesn't mean yet, that you're going in the wrong direction.

    All the Xbox's are broken! Ha ha!

    Or

    It'll start like:
    If you've already bought an Xbox, sorry, you can't get in on this...

    If Blackberrys are addictive cellphones, Channel9 is the ultimate addictive website.

    And it's well known that you are cheap f*ck (sorry for my words) who lives in some forgotten country somewhere in eastern block - and for whatever reason you think you have to spread everywhere your little BS about how evil America is.

    Yup, they both were pejorative on their face.

    I agree, it was uncalled for... but (and you knew it was coming)

    Read beyond the grammar and evaluate the premise of the language itself.

    The intent of both was to inflict insult or offense.

    Neither was harsher than the other and they were both inappropriate, rude and uncalled for, but one was instigated and the other an emotional reaction. Which leads me to the conclusion that the first poster is guilty of the higher offense.

    People put too much emphasis on the weight of text these days, and not enough on the meaning.

    Of course these are just my opinions, and they don't mean much, especially in today's world where semantics just don't mean as much as it used to.

    EDIT:// What I didn't know was that there was two globes spinning around for us to choose from. If MS has one and USA has another... heheh... wait, does that imply there are three globes? Perhaps another whole globe for every one else?
