This is what happens when your company is one of the richest on the planet ... you get to have really cool launch parties for your products. It seems that the XBOX team is throwing a large 3000 person party at a TOP SECRET location located somewhere in the Mojave desert. More details here ...

Zero Hour

ZERO HOUR! It seems that everyone is going to get together in the middle of the desert, eat, drink, sing songs about XBOX, share stories, play games, talk about Halo tactics, etc. for 24 hours counting down to launch. This is how you throw a party ... though, I have to admit that it reminds me a lot of 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind' (the movie) where the U.S. government sets up a secret operation on Devils Tower in the middle of country. So, I picture the same sort of thing here with 'Zero Hour' where all these disguised Piggly Wiggly trucks leave Redmond bound for a secret destination. Look at the above photo .... lots of similarities! Hmmmm.
