E3 09: Is Xbox.com ruining all of Microsoft's big reveals?

10:55 AM on 06.01.2009 // Chad Concelmo

So, remember how Brad Nicholson just posted a story about how the mysterious Halo: Reach now has its own achievement page on Xbox.com?

Well, apparently it is not that just game. There are a ton of brand new achievement listings on the Web site that, unfortunately for Microsoft (but fortunately for bloggers), pretty much ruin, what I am sure will be, the big game reveals at Microsoft’s press conference in a couple hours.

Listings for Alan Wake, Forza 3, Shadow Complex, Joy Ride, and The Saboteur all now appear on the console’s official Web site. Interestingly enough, when searching for Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, this screen popped up.*

What do you think? Big slip by someone at Microsoft? Or an interesting plan to get people talking before the company’s big E3 presentation?

*That last MGS4 one is totally a fake by our very own Adam Dork. Don’t freak out!
