I've been following many newsposts on www.xbox-scene.com and there are many speculations of what this site is counting down to. There's rumors it could be the day the 360 console premieres, the instore models appear, or xbox 360 shops in new york and japan open. But now a new theory has arisen, and I wouldn't be suprised if it was the truth.

It's a countdown to something halo 3 related.

From the xbox-scene newspost...

Earlier this week, we reported about the latest update to the Origen Xbox 360 website, in which the teaser site had a phrase in Latin placed in one of the tree branches.
That would translate in English as: "In this space our tree has flourished abundant with the unknown fruits of Elysium, who will play in the chosen place, surrounded by the angels of Origen."

Although that sounds like a suggestion to either the rumored stores that will open on Tokyo and New York’s Time Square, or the first Xbox 360 kiosk appearing in stores, a new clue gives us a third option.
Kirill Wiser emailed us to inform us that Elysium is the name of the city in which John Spartan-117, aka Master Chief, grew up.
Interestingly too, the name of Halo 2 third and final boss is Tartarus, which again in Greek Mythology, is the opposite of the Elysium.
So now a new question rise: Is the Origen Xbox 360 web site counting down to the official announcement of Halo 3 on September 27th?


PS: This is not the place to start a halo sux/is overrated/does your mom in her sleep flame war.

Halo sux!

Just kidding! :D I play Halo 2 on XBL every other day.

I know about the site and the fine print, but this news about the whole Tartarus/Elysium thing. Cool.
