How come Microsoft responds to Halo rumors but not rumors about it's own console?

The fact that they won't say whether or not the new console with require an always-on connection just gives the rumor more life. I'm not saying they have to respond to every little rumor but this one is major. Not at all like a rumor about Halo being released on Steam. I don't recall countless blogs, gamers and businesses discussing it as if it were a make it or break it decision.

Conker didn't suck :(

conker sucked. goldeneye...awesome game for its time. spent a lotta time blasting away at my friends... and hacking the game so I could get extra MP maps out of it

I got a Heavy Sixer, so that would make it an early 2600 is what i have in storage right now. Dont know how i came up with 6400.. I blame the Commodore.

Next time i go to my storage unit, i will find the exact model number for ya.  :)  Might have been confusing the Commadore 64 with the Atari model numbers. You talking 25-30 years man...My memory has faded (like smoke) in my middle age...LOL

Intended or not, I think the strategy is brilliant on MS' part.  They have everybody and their brother blogging/talking about a product that isn't even announced yet.  It's probably benefitting them in the long run.

It isn't that difficult to understand why MS comments on one and not the other. Halo 3 is a released product. MS has yet to announce a new console. MS does not comment on unannounced products.

Because it is Halo.

Halo belongs to Xbox only.

No one else should ever have it or touch it.

I have been playing since Atari 6400, so i am as "old school" as it gets. And quit frankly, the only 3 good games from Rare i ever played was Goldeneye, Jetforce Gemini, and Conker.(and face it, this game was only good because of the humor) Couldnt give a crap about the other games, nor would i care if any sequels were made.

You just seem like the type that just cant let go of the past.

Never played Conker (don't think) but yeah GoldenEye and JetForce were great, those two plus Banjo Kazooie (first one) were three of my favorite games on 64
