Revision as of 21:00, 17 August 2010 by Thebruce
- New anchor of Xbox Canada's new Xbox News XBL video series
- Laura Niven is similar in name to Larry Niven, author of the Ringworld novels, to which the Halo ring theme is connected.
- Episode 1, uploaded to youtube on August 16th, 2010, shows a very sub-standard production, with reported news unrelated to Xbox. Suspicious!
- Episode 2, shared to youtube on the 17th has a footer marquee containing some very blatant references to the Halo franchise.
- The marquee text reads:
- 0914210-^=1200-34*3 the Covenant is coming...attacks are imminent. A-271214.378.20104**_0 Gamers make great soldiers? Study suggests hand-eye coordination, problem solving required in game play, could help develop better soldiers. 0.10.2012:^.419.0*-+:> @UNSC_INTEL
- 0914210 -- September 14, 2010
- 1200 -- Noon?
- 34*3 -- "343"? 102?
- Considered at this point to be a hoax - the Twitter user @LauraNiven appeared and got a lot of attention, but was quickly denounced as being related to Xbox News, and most likely someone playing a prank and playing off the attention of the video series.
