    "On 1/11, an announcement will be made that will rock [this] Gaming Hardware Board"

    A thread with this title appeared on the Gaming Hardware Board on 2Channel (Japan's largest BBS service) yesterday, garnering 2200+ replies as of right now

    The original poster provided no concrete sources, only saying the following

    "This annoucement will be a shocking one. It will mark an end to the next-gen war and bring peace to the Gaming Hardware Board.

    The key words are:

    -zokuhen (sequel)
    -iten (transfer)
    -chushi (cancellation)
    -kotai (change,as in change of the guard)
    -sonzoku (continue to exist)

    I imagine you don't know what this is all about, but you will on the 11th."



    It will be interesting to see what happens in another two days




    Has anyone got a link to that 2ch thread Ikachii is talking about?

    Some game important to the Japanese. Maybe an important franchise swapping allegance?

    It probably will be something very dull. Can't be that important if they're delaying the announcement.

    At best its something like mgs4 also being a 360 title, doens't really get me exited but to some it will. Can't see how that would rock the hardware board though.

    Actually, at best it would be a machine that could play all the consoles games. YEA!

    If only. Japanese porn is always bizarrely entertaining.

    I say we make a similar thread. Call it:


    "OMG stay tune to this thread for major gaming news, the nature and source of which we shall reveal in a couple of days OMG".



    It won't be easy matching their 2000 replies, but we have to try.

    You never know, perhaps their idea of being rocked is a train sim with a Star Wars theme.

    Actually it'll probably be duller than that.

    It's a Japanese message board. It'll be to do with either:

    -Noodles
    -Godzilla
    -Schoolgirl panties


    If it's to do with bringing peace, it's probably not Godzilla.

    Only the Japanese could come out with a line like this

    "This annoucement will be a shocking one. It will mark an end to the next-gen war and bring peace to the Gaming Hardware Board."

    Its not WWIII guys :)

    Stick a "vanguard key" in between major and gaming, and you'll get them, no worries. ;)
