It’s not often that we cover marketing teasers, but then it’s not often that we get crowbars in the mail either…

Earlier this afternoon the following crowbar unexpectedly showed up on our doorstep courtesy of NVIDIA. The crowbar reads “For use in case of zombies or…” and has the right half of the NVIDIA logo at the end of the sentence.

Meanwhile over at NVIDIA has posted a teaser countdown page, announcing that they will be making an announcement at the NVIDIA Gaming Festival 2012 in Shanghai, China, at 7:30pm PDT on Saturday the 28th.

So what does a crowbar have to do with anything? At this point we haven’t a clue. And while crowbars happen to be the signature weapon for Valve’s Half-Life series, we’re rather confident that a black crowbar has nothing to do with Half-Life. This leaves us with opening crates… and that’s all we have so far.

It looks like we won't get our answer until Saturday night, so until then stay tuned.

    Given Valves recent announcement on Linux ports and their hiring of a hardware team a joint game console announcement doesn't seem so far fetched. The market for a Linux port of Source is tiny unless they plan on creating one themselves with a Linux game box. Reply
