Default Guess the forums are being hacked....

At around 1045pm EDT, the color of the characters were turned to green, then I spotted that the main name for the forums was changed to "Xbox GAMER DEN". Also, where the google ad banner was, it was changed to show a sentence : "There`s no power greater than X!". Lastly, the Subsim Radio Room logo was replace by another one.

I noticed it after I made a thread.

Hope this is just a one day deal.

This is an April Fools Joke making fun of the idea that Silent Hunter might one day become an X box game with the continuing emphasis on the 3rd person shooter vantage point, lots of explosions, and online play.

Yeah, especially with the way Ubi is currently implementing 1st person... it wouldn't surprise me one bit... one day... If Ubi buys Eidos at some point we may see a Silent Deus Hunter's Ex-Creed... lol...
