It's probably the confirmation of Halo 2 being released well before Christmas, and perhaps a few copies to give away!!!!

I like the idea of the early Halo 2 release date :-D. But its probably just something like something thats really funny but not that important.....But I hope I am VERY wrong.

I can think of few things bigger than a Halo 2 demo coming to xba...

This must really be important. But does it affect all of us here at xba or only a select few?

It could be the Halo 2 idea...but, then again...it coud be bigger :cool:

I hope it's something better than a give-away. Even if it is a Halo 2 demo give-away, what chance do I have of winning that?:(

the news and huge population of txb merged with the awesome community of xba

thats pretty cool...but not as cool as halo2:-/

last time someone told me they had an announcement better than halo2, it took 3 months for them to tell, and then it was just a crappy gta3 annoucement *cough*oxm*cough*

The fact that two dumb websites are joining together probably matters to the vast minority has something to do with no one catchin on or caring enuf to catch one. the fact someone claimed it is bigger then the early release of halo 2 is enough reason for mutiny...crap i gotta get back to studying :cry:

Mostly my experiance has been even with the most biggest things, the more they are built up the more they let you down in the end, even if its only a little bit. So I hope all this building up including ne lame replies this post might get, are worth it. I am sure that we will all still keep comming here no matter and this site if great enough that it needs no "super cool" new this or that or event or give away. So really this thread is silly, and whatever comes should have just been alowed to come no big show cus this site is just fun enough that ne thing else is icing on the cake. I mean the only reason most of us has stayed has been the ppl. And even if tomorrow I found out that I was going to get Halo 2 the very same day or something of that nature I still think the thing that would keep me logging on at these odd ours is to keep up with my friends and all here.

It will always be about you ppl.

Thanks. :cheers:

Guess Number 1:
XBA.com is being shut down and replaced with an actual building. Perhaps a dormroom type of setting were users can move into and live (a true Assylum). This would eliminate all member distractions (work, family, friends, life, etc.) from being addicts and allow them to focus on what's important, Xbox and the cummunity around it.

Guess Number 2:
Just judging from what mods are saying in THIS thread, I'd say it has something to do with leagues or teams or "this kind of thing" (<-Arnie Quote). Some tighter integration of the cummunity and the online games we play. Would be good timing for something like this as there are so many online games coming to the mighty box in the near future...

Kraft
10-06-2003, 01:18 PM

Here's my guess:

The staff at XBA are going to put up servers for each XBox Live Game that only XBA members can use. That way, we can all enjoy lag free Xbox Live games all the time.

Okay, I know that's a pipe dream and there is probably no way to do this, but you have to admit this would be sweet and would be cooler than an early release of Halo 2.

Papke
10-06-2003, 03:45 PM
Lemme think, what is the thing that Maxy loves more than any other thing? What is the thing he always talks about?

Halo

I've heard Maximus say that he still plays Halo everyday and loves it more than a man should love a game...:p

This, in combination with Maxy saying it will be BIGGER THAN A HALO 2 DEMO, leads me to believe that it really won't let us down.

It also makes me think of one thing that every xbox gamer would kill for right now. But that's too good to be true, isn't it?

it has to be sumtin about xb connect...i say XBA will get their own program of xb connect specialized so u can use ur xbl voice on it....it will be only for people at xba to use....ive noticed that alot of members with the letters XBC have joined lately by looking at the new members lists so there bringing in people that work with XBC...You Get What Im Saying? N E one else notice this"?

Papke
10-06-2003, 05:01 PM
It crossed my mind Stunner, because of the adding of the XBConnect Tag field, but this 'big thing' is supposed to be bigger than a Halo 2 demo.

Perhaps others aren't anticipating Halo 2 as much as I, or perhaps the reason only the mods know the secret is because they are the only people who will really give a crap.

Perhaps others aren't anticipating Halo 2 as much as I, or perhaps the reason only the mods know the secret is because they are the only people who will really give a crap. i said that to myself to...but think..maximus said its bigger than halo 2 right now..halo 2 aint out right now...XBC with voice would kick azz because u could play halo online with voice which would be better than any olinine game out right now..and if its just for XBA members than thats even better...

XBA.com is being shut down and replaced with an actual building. Perhaps a dormroom type of setting were users can move into and live (a true Assylum). This would eliminate all member distractions (work, family, friends, life, etc.) from being addicts and allow them to focus on what's important, Xbox and the cummunity around it.

That certainly would be a "cummunity" seein as how 95% of the ppl on here are guys...

Okay, I know that's a pipe dream and there is probably no way to do this, but you have to admit this would be sweet and would be cooler than an early release of Halo 2.
Hell no that wouldnt be cooler than halo 2. Not by a long shot. If they had those servers and we didnt have to have a live account to play on them that might allow the servers to be compared to halo 2. With all of those given Halo 2 would still rape.

Rumor among some I have spoken with claim XBA is going away. But more than one of the mods have said this is going to be 'worth the wait' and it's going to be beyond everyone's hopes and dreams.

Come on guys, think. XBA isn't going anywhere.:watchout:

XBA is NOT going anywhere or being sold to anyone or merging with anyone.

Since i started half the rumors and have already said in a forum post, what is coming up, yall should have some clue about whats going to happen. What does XBA always do around this time of the year? :) Stay tuned if you dont know.

Okay I'm new to this thing. Can someone give me a clue as to what XBA does around this time of year. The suspense just took me away from my work for an hour. :huh:

With all the hype, I would bet that they have a ton of stuff to giveaway right around Xmas time. Since I have been around here, I have never seen a site give away as much stuff as XBA. Usually they do them on a specific date and time in the chatroom.

My brother is co-owner of a DVD company and sites that they give screeners and promotional stuff to usually sell it on eBay. But not here, they give a ton of stuff away...Props to XBA.

Thanks, and this is why we're doing what we can do keep you folks happy...hell, this will be my first contest on staff, should be interesting.

And guys, before you just say that what we're doing isn't going to be comparable to Halo2...well, you still don't know the full details, so don't knock it til you try it, k? :)

Could be both, still working out the details. And who said this was around Christmas time.......MUWAHAHAHAHAHAA. Yall have no clue. :)

If you all are having chatroom issues, i suggestion yall get on the ball and get some help from the staff to get your issue resolved.

How could you guys do this to us Xbox addicts? This is like giving a coke head 1,000,000 keys and telling him if he finds the right one he'll open the door to a kilo of Columbias' finest. He'd shat his panties before he ever finds the key and miss the prize. You just don't tease people like this, it's inhumane.

lol...dude, I have never won a single thing ever...but, before I became a mod to this website, the greatest XBox fansite on the net, I won atleast 3 times. So, just be persistent and be ready to reap the rewards :D

And, let me clear this up for everyone...this particular event is not going to happen this Christmas or the holidays. It is going to happen THIS MONTH!!! Keep tuning in. I gave away that detail in the thread opener. Will we have other events between this "thing" and Christmas? haha...just wait and see :D

i got a question....say abunch of people from txb or fxb hear about this..so they register in the time of the giveways or whatever...they win....and then they go back to txb or whereever they came from..isnt that kind of a ripoff to us XBA people? get what im sayin?

And you had better be right maximus....I don't wanna get my hopes up and not win a god damned thing or if anything an XBA sticker lol. That would be nice but not better then halo 2 being released early...... DON'T LET ME DOWN PLEEZ!

lol...they are just people, man. If they love XBox as much as we do, then, they can benefit from it. But, the question begs an answer: Why in the hell would a person, after coming to XBA and winning something, go back to TXB or FXB when they do nothing of the sort?

Are we all about giveaways? Yes and no. Yes, we do them and each one somehow tops the previous ones...but, no since we are all XBA brethren and, as far as I'm concerned, we all run this website. It's an XBA thang, gentlemen :D

Yeah it would suck for us members who are always here and not win anything but some guy from txb comes and wins and then leaves. But we cant do anything about it so i guess we gotta just live with it.

Add to the fact that there will probably be some participation requirements for some of the giveaways. # of posts, or reviews, excite comments etc. We have rarely seen any true cyber moochers come through.

P.S. Before I became staff, I won 3 times. A t-shirt, and 2 games. :)

Nice work! I won a NAKI G-Pack carrying case, a NAKI game carrier, two games, an XBox Skin, and one of the most notable thing that happened to me is that an XBA member here nicknamed Chronic hooked me up with a game...just because.

And, to think I never one a thing before coming to XBA. I think all of you have a good shot at the end of this month :D

And, as a side note: We know who the drifters are and who the real addicts are, dudes...so, I wouldn't worry about anything :D

some of the guesses are just dumb...

"Halo 2 is gonna be released early"

how is that something big for XBA? might be big for xbox gamers, but how does that affect xba?


Couldnt u guys figure out on like page 3 that the big thing is a giveaway....i wonder how big though...

A contest is cool with me though. I won NBA2k3 in the last giveaway, and im looking forward to winning again. I'm stoked to find out whats up your sleves that makes this contest so big....how about a 60 day giveaway ne one...allthough that would put Josh in his grave :p

Why not? If its becasue your a mod that is stupid. I am not sure if you get paid, but even if you do its still dumb. We got the coolest mods around by far. Much better the other xbox forums. Not saying the other forums arent good but we are in a league of our own.

If there are contest, it will be like this, newbie and even a very old member are elligible to participate but the older member got more chance to get in all giveaways.

In a wierd kinda way, we all own a part of XBoxaddict. Not from a financial standpoint, but, this website would not be what it is without the members here. This event is taking place to represent that exact concept...it's our way to give back, so to speak.

Well took me awhile to read through all of these posts... and 0111010001101111001000000110011001101001011011100110010000100000011000010010000001100110011100100110 0101011001010110101101101001011011100110011100100000011000100110100101101110011000010111001001111001 0010000001100100011001010110001101101111011001000110010101110010001011000010000001100011011000010111 0101011100110110010100100000010001000100000101001101010011100010000001101001011001100010000001001001 0010011101101101001000000110011101101111011010010110111001100111001000000111010001101111001000000111 0100011100100111100100100000011000010110111001100100001000000110010001101111001000000110100101110100 001000000110001001111001001000000110100001100001011011100110010000100001

Not to mention all these exclusives and Inclusives and such.. *sigh* Guesses, cryptic XBA Staff, poor guesses, many Halo Fanboys getting upset because _nothing_ is better than Halo (get over it already), I hope all of us, n00b and 1337 members alike enjoy this "thing", however big or small or better than pre-release of Halo2 is. . .

So, is there valet parking for the chat room? Log in early?
