Eagle eyed Console Monster forum user Raisedbyflames happened spot a countdown on AmpedSnowboarding.com. At the time of writing, the countdown is at a little over 145 days. What’s interesting about this is that underneath the countdown is the Xbox 360 and PS3 logos. Surely this can only mean a new Amped game is coming to those platforms?
Well perhaps not. For a start, the site only displays the logo for Amped 3 which just seems a little odd. The company behind Amped 3, Indie Built, was closed back in May. The PS3 logo is not the official one and is simply a photoshopped PS2 logo and what’s with all the numbers and Google ads?
But there is reason to think it could possibly, just maybe, be legit. For example, Indie Built’s official website now redirects to AmpedSnowboarding.com. It’s also very similar to many of Microsoft’s viral advertising campaign.
We’ll keep an eye on it here at Console Monster and let you guys know if anything comes of the site.
Update: The Countdown has since been removed from the site, as has the Amped Snowboarding and Amped 3 logos. The website is now just a blank page.
