    Default Anyone Else Get A Gears-Related XBL Message?

    I logged on and this was there to greet me:

    Viral marketing campaign or someone with too much time on their hands? It's no one on my Friends List either.

    Here's a movie, just in case people think it's a photoshop job.

    I want to see if anyone else got it. What will come tomorrow?

    not to be a dick or anything, but considering this is ur 1st post, and that u probably signed up today.

    Im gonna say u probably did that with a friend, and ill stick with this assumption unless more people get the message... or Epic confirms it.

    I understand that, I can take a video of my Friends List if you wish, or you can go to IGN.com and check out the Xbox 360 Lobby. I post a lot there, I've also made multiple threads about it. I just want to see how many people have recieved it. But of course, I don't know. It could be someone screwing with me, or it could be the start of something awesome. We'll see tomorrow.

    ya but i mean, u could do that with a friend without putting him on ur list. And i think its kinda akward that only you got it so far and your a new member. I doubt epic sends messages to people at random, and hope they come to their forum.

    But... i also have no proof, so i suppose we shall see 2marrow or until others confirm something

    I totally understand where you're coming from, and I've checked the forum before but never had any real reason to post on them. Now I do. Like I said, if it turns out to be a joke or it turns out to be real I'll definately let you guys know. If Mark comes in here and discredits me then feel free to flame all the way to hell. I just came looking for others who may have received it.

    I think it's all a gyp created by the thread starter...

    He probably just made a free silver account and sent himself a message...

    Well, seing as how anyone from EPIC wouldn't know his gamertag since that was the first time he's ever posted here, that's the most logical answer...

    Plus, if EPIC was sending messages to posters, I would guess the first ones to get it would be Zoso or Uday...

    I got other reports of this same thing happening today. I think you should wait until tomorrow and see if this MFenix character, whoever it is, sends you another post. If he does please come back here and let us know what he says as soon as possible.

    This could mean two things.


    1. EPIC has nothing to do with this, as they want to know about this character and what he's possibly "lying" about.

    2. EPIC DOES have something to do with this, and wants the guy to post more messages to send us through spirals of confusion.

    Here's something to think about, if he was created by epic, why would he say Locusts instead of Locust?
    1 Locust,
    2 Locust,
    not 2 locusts.
    I'd say fake.
    (his motto is Locusts suck)

    And think about the message.

    "We need your help. Can't talk now. Don't know who to trust. Will send more tomorrow"

    Now look at these two lines.

    "We need your help. Can't talk now. Don't know who to trust. Will send more tomorrow"

    Why would he ask someone he doesn't know to help, if he also states he doesn't know WHO to trust?

    That is pretty much the same message contents that Ilovebees was also all about. Or what Microsoft did for Perfect Dark Zero.

    Ilovebees was a big viral makering scheme for Halo 2 - just search for it on Gamespot. And at Xo5, Microsoft delivered notes to the hotel rooms of some journalists which included a message from Joana Dark asking for help, since she didn't know whom to trust...

    Haha this is sweet. I love Epic. Mark Rein is probably one of the guys behind this, and is loving watching us all confused. This is pretty cool and exciting.
