Countdown to Xbox 360

Published on .

Noon tomorrow marks the end of Xbox and AKQA's countdown clock at origenxbox360.com. Since it appeared 33 days ago, the site has been the subject of rampant speculation about what might happen when the clock hits zero. Showing a tree and a rabbit with faded grey letters in the background, the site has changed subtly, at one point displaying a latin phrase in the tree that read, "In this space our tree has flourished abundant with the unknown fruits of Elysium, who will play in the chosen place surrounded by the angels of Origen." Since then, the tree sprouted fruits and another rabbit appeared. According to an internal source, all that can be said is that the fruit will change color, "which means something."
