It’s the calm before the storm, and NeoGAF user DemonNite, who is known to be a developer at Sony (even if his true identity is a well kept secret). posted a rather big tease in the form of a great video that you can see at the bottom of the post.
The most interesting part, though, is what he said afterwards:
Easter egg in webm.
It didn’t take too long for the eagle-eyed NeoGAF users to spot the easter egg. DemonNite added the label “E3 2014 megatons” to the disk, as you can see below.
When the disk gets attached to the back of Tron‘s version of Kaz Hirai, we can hear five beeps, which were also added by DemonNite on top of the original video from the movie.
The popular (and logical) explanation is that DemonNite is teasing five “megaton” announcements at Sony’s E3 press conference.
A second (less popular) theory includes the sixth beep heard when the camera angle changes, for a total of six announcements, and maybe even a bigger “megaton” at the end.
One thing is for sure: while we should take this with a grain of salt due to the fact that it’s not an official source (unless, of course, it’s a controlled tease, which is very possible), DemonNite’s track record and position definitely give it at least a degree of credibility.
Whether you believe it or not, check out the video below. It’s simply awesome.
All credit for the discovery goes to the NeoGAF users that cracked the code. I wouldn’t have guessed it in a thousand years.
