The internet is abuzz with rumour, speculation and puzzlement over a mysterious countdown clock that has appeared on www.rareware.com
, home of Rare, former Nintendo second-party developer who are currently owned by Microsoft Game Studios.
The countdown is obviously related to E3, and if I had to put any guesses out there, it would also be related very specifically to Natal. We haven't heard much from Rare other than their work on the Xbox Live Avatar system, and given the countdown also features an Avatar, it's likely the system will also be employed in whatever it is they're revealing.
Rare are most notably remembered for their efforts on the N64 with the likes of Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Conker's Bad Fur Day and Star Fox Adventures. Their games for Microsoft have been sub-par at best, with most suggesting they're but a shell of their former self with most original leads off and doing their own thing.
Any thoughts on what they could be holding up their sleeve?
