    I just hope this year I get the d20 in my PAX bag, last year I missed out on that. I didn't even realize there was supposed to be one until it was over.

    assuming the bags are anywhere close to the same as last year, of course.

    I fear for no one, because if they are at pax, they almost definately dont have virgin ears anyways.

    [quote=http://www.xe360.com/article/Halo_3/3450.html]Well no, I didn’t actually hear about it until a MS PR guy told me about it, but I thought it was pretty interesting.

    Well a funny thing about that, we showed them and flew around in the trailer in real time, we were able to show how light reflects off the space-tether, you could see the expanse of the Forerunner construct and how it goes out for miles, something people don’t know is we had the option to let the press play some multiplayer.

    They had the option to let them and I recently read in a bungie weekly update that they used that option.[/quote]

    That's what I said in my original post. Unless you have another source, I've never heard of any Press or any other showing of Halo 3 multiplayer. They only showed and allowed the press to manipulate the camera in the Halo 3 trailer to prove that the graphics in the trailer were being rendered in real-time. They haven't shown any gameplay to anyone.

    I don't remember where I saw this but I know I saw somewhere that at the press thing across the street the bungie guys actually took control of Master Chief and played multiplayer against each other.

    I haven't read the entirety of the thread, but I'd say that the Rev being playable is likely, the 360 having more of a presence could mean GOW multiplayer, and either Halo 3 and SSBM being present is extremely unlikely.

    I don't post here much, but after going to PAX last year, I'm surely going next year as well (I live in Redmond, so the commute isn't that long at all).

    Anyways, IGN had some interesting info in their rumor section that might pertain to this:
    Rumor: Leipzig Games Convention to house playable Wii games

    Our recommendation: Believe it

    The Leipzig Games Convention kicks off this August and we already know of a couple publishers who are planning to show off their Wii games in playable form. In fact, one or more of the games have never been shown in playable form before. At the very least, the show would seem to be on track to showcase a bigger Wii presence than previously suspected.
    So do you believe that we could expect some of these titles to appear at PAX as well? I'm pretty sure that the presence of the Wii is guaranteed, but it would be even better to play some games before much of the media .:P

    I haven't seen anyone mention Gears of War yet - I'd expect to see that before Halo 3 - thoughts?

    I'm just almost as excited about getting my hands on that as Halo 3... almost.

    I've seen GoW and I talked to ny boss who played it at E3, but neither one of us can figure what is so great about this game?

    I could care less if they had it there.

    BigRed, I tried desperately to obtain one of those sweet glowing AMD wristbands from you but you never caved, claiming that they would be distributed the nights of the concerts, which they never were. Also, you gave one to my friend who offered you a hug in exchange for one, but you granted him the bracelet under the grounds that he not hug you. Perhaps you are also hording hundreds of these sacred gauntlets? Gimme the loot!

    "is not".

    Basically, it's not going to come out until next year, so I doubt they're ready to have a public playable build.

    I feel bad cause in 05 all I gave to the person first in line was a tin of bawls mints.

    Sooo tempting. I live less than a mile away, so it would be pretty easy for me. But damn, beating the guy who is coming at 6:30 AM when it doesn't even open up till 2pm. That would be one hell of a long wait in line.

    I'll tell you what, I'll show up at 4am if someone is there with the prize, then I'll go home, sleep, and I'll see you all at 1pm! ;o)

    Ha, even I wont be there at 4am.

    Plus im not gonna let people get off that easily, you gotta be hardcore enough to camp out there for a long time.

    I've had some more time to see it, and while it is no Halo 3, It does look like an alright game. I'll probably pick up the collecters edition.

    Frankie gave a shout out to PAX in the latest Bungie Weekly Update.

    While I'm sure this doesn't bring us any closer to seeing Halo 3 at PAX, it is cool nonetheless.

    very likely nintendo would bring the wii to pax. it would be embarrasing to them to bring (god forbid) gamecube or GBA demos. if not wii, then at the very least the latest ds games.
    but what do i know ive never been to pax before

    If someone has somebody from the inside saying it won't be there, then I won't hold my breath.

    From a marketing stand point, the more press, the more hype and the more hands on time people get with this thing the better

    I think if Nintendo brough Wii they would take PAX by storm and pretty much blow everybody else out of the water.

    We'll probably know it's in there the moment the doors open on the second day. I doubt they'd reveal it beforehand.

    Sucks if it isn't though. It'll still be awesome.
