It's for the press, so unprofessionalism is like, sort of par for the course.

That's what she said.

And yes, I concur. The lame photoshoppedness of the date and title "save the date" detract from credibility.

Alright... This when E3 is going to be right? So are they announcing the Release date? P.S.: there really are unconfirmed reports of a halo game being developed besides "Wars" and the Jackson Project. This is going to be something big, i can feel it.

AFAIK, this is for Halo 3 only, and it's not when E3 is. E3 is at some other date.

Edit: Got beat to the punch. =(

So will this be the unveiling of the story, weapons, enemies, multiplayer, or all of the above? Either way I would like for them to explain the stuff in the same manner as they did for the Halo 2 multiplayer demo in E3 (2k4?).

Expect an in-game trailer of Campaign. At the least.

Where did this picture come from? Did one of us put the text on there due to an announcement found somewhere else?

It's an image emailed to the press. Team Xbox, Kotaku and a few other sites are posting it, saying Microsoft sent it to them.

My speculation is that it's the unveiling of the Beta in all it's glory - screens, videos, features - the works. Given that it's five days before the public portion of the beta begins, I would expect the focus of the event to be on that.

Which is not to say other things won't be shown, such as the release date or snippet of campaign. But from the marketing perspective, I'd think you want to focus on one message at a time, and the big news is the launch of the beta. I'm personally expecting the release date to be announced right when the beta ends, kind of a tease - "the beta is over but you can play the full game on XX/XX!"

Either way I'll be glued to my computer big time. With Bungie's habit of releasing information such as the vidocs and 5th anniversary announcements in the middle of the night, I don't see myself getting any sleep that night.

I agree with just about everything you said. Nah, scratch that. I do agree with everything you just said.

Funny thing is, I read his post without looking at who had posted it. His writing style is so similar to yours that I thought it was your post.

I'm going with the Beta info theory. Why would they tell us about something ten times better than what we will play. That would be cruel. But then again Bungie loves to tease.
