    As it seems "Marathon" is the name of the colony-ship and this can be the next bungie game for Xenon:

    Funny!!

    Marathon, if I'm not mistaken was Bungie's first game...

    The small pic of the controller was white as well. I'm guessing the xbox 2 won't be black and green, instead white and green.

    Yes, Marathon was the first game made by bungie. But it was only released for Mac, and by the way, it was awasome.

    More CNN news: Perfect Dark Zero will be unveiled at E3, as well as Prey!!, do you remember ? The game that was started in the same time that Quake 3 and that used the portals technology.Another Duke Nukem Forever!!!. And at last,the finally chosen name seems to be Xbox 360:

    Like Apple colours?
    I read somewhere in recent xbox2 rumours and there it was referred the colours "black and silver", but I'm sure it was just a slip.

    Lovely DOF effects but i don't think the Xbox2 will be breaking a sweat rendering that...

    I like the art direction. If the average game looks like this (especially with AA and DOF and quality textures/decent geometry) I will be happy. Kind of the catch 22--eye candy is great, but if you can hit your goal artistically and still have HW power left over, well, who cares? I think that is a good situation... not being limited by the HW artistically and getting to create the world you want and then focus on gameplay. But that is just me :)

    The game looks good, but i really hope the average game will look better than that.

    I know these ARGs are all the rage and all, but are they actually effective as marketing tools? I can procrastinate with the best of them, but these are even too big a waste of time for me.

    Just an intuition here...

    If these images are really clues to Xenon; it seems to me there is a flair of similarity to dreamcast console.
