1207-2011 - Coincidence or hidden easter egg?


Hey gang.
For starters - Im Tigue, former PS1 player (still jump on occasionally), who has been lurking about your site for a great number of years, just keeping quietly to myself and enjoying the consistent updates you guys provide - especially with the announcement of PS2.

I had no intention of making myself all too known but then this morning I stumbled on this little "gem" while I was looking back over the PS2 announcement pictures that you guys have in the gallery and thought I should share something I noticed...

If you look at any of the announcement pictures (any of those which show the TR troops) you'll see on the side of the rifle it has 1207-2011. Im curious everyones thoughts on the matter. Is this just a coincidence, or could that be a hidden date? 12/07/2011 ?? doesnt seem too far fetched to consider that it may be something significant, since it IS an announcement picture, and 12/07 I dont think would be all to far off from a potential release date that seems realisticly in line with all the news we've been seeing.


Just wondered everyone elses thoughts - now ill creep back into my dark corner and continue to watch from the shadows!

- Tigue

** Edit**
I grabbed the best of the 3 images and cropped out the portion Im talking about, take a look for yourselves!

I just checked for myself, its certainly there.

I think its a little too convenient for a coincidence, whoever did the art knew we would pour over the pictures and new that some sharp eyed person would point this out. Any random numbers would have done, but these seem to suggest something.

I'm not sure its a release date however (i hope it is, don't get me wrong) but maybe something else. Beta? Open Beta? Who knows.

Looks like 1227 to me, but the resolution of the pic is bad.

It means that in 1207 the Secret Order of Elites was founded. This has carried forth through today as "SOE".

I wondered about that myself after I added the cropped picture and looked again. In the larger picture it looks like 1207, but when i cropped it and looked again - you may be right!

It would be very difficult to point to a specific date of actual release as early as this screen shot was released. There are too many variables that could cause it to be changed.

Gotta go with Firefly on this one. I think he may have discovered where the Knights Templar disappeared to.

Err guys thats the number of kills and then the number of women. The two most important numbers for any republic solider (other than serial number of course).

Hmm. 12/27 *is* a Tuesday...

It seems odd to shoot for the week *after* Christmas, though, especially this far out. Why not aim for 12/20, instead? That way, PS2 can be a gift under the tree AND everybody can get a bunch of playtime in on their holiday time off...
