Yet another Microsoft "mystery" site

Posted by Kim Peterson at 11:17 AM

These pseudo-anonymous wink-wink viral marketing sites from Microsoft are coming out a little too frequently lately.

The latest is notfornoobs.com, which shows a television set and asks users to turn the set's knob. The logo for Microsoft and gaming accessories company Razer later appear, and then a countdown clock that appears to be set to Friday Aug. 25.

That's the same date as the start of Penny Arcade's PAX video game convention in Bellevue. Microsoft is an exhibitor at the event. Maybe an announcement is in the works?

(Noob, by the way, is a somewhat insulting term used to describe a beginner, or a "newbie," in a video game or another realm of technology.)
