A "Serious" Phone Number?

Someone contacted me through AIM saying he had just talked to SeriousGamer007. Apparently, SeriousGamer007, in order to prove his validity, left the following directions.

1. Call this number 425.882.7878

Virtual Vision
7659 178th Pl NE
Redmond, WA 98052-4953
(425) 882-7878
Virtual Vision Phone Phone Number

2. Ask for Bruce
3. When they say "Bruce who" reply "The One who Pilots the Cessnas"
4. When Bruce answers, ask how the meeting with Nintendo went today

Well, those are his directions. This could prove him wrong or right. And if he works there, it could be him who answers the phone making it a mass hoax. Anyway, someone should call and report to me their findings. Prove SeriousGamer007 the real deal or fake once and for all.

If this is true...ARG.

If not...biggest e-hoax evar? Seriously, this is a lot of trouble for just some Nintendo fanboy attention whore.

Man, this has really gotten out of hand. He admitted to being a fake about a month ago, saying he was just a frustrated Nintendo fan that wanted to make hype for the Revolution. Why is he so bent on proving he is the real deal now?

ihave a calling card at home and called for shit and giggles and it's defitnitly a company. the receptionest did not know Bruce as "The One who Pilots the Cessnas" (small airplane), but did say there are two Bruce's that worked there. i didn't even bother to keep on insisting so i left it at that

hope somebody more creative than me has better luck

Well anonymous, what did he say. Also if you look at the eMagin thing, it says a thing about Virtual Visions at the bottom.

You guys, I'm the guy he talked to about this. Phalanx can confirm this if you want.

Anyway, he told me that Virtual Visions is a wholly owned subsidary of Emagin.

i don't know about you guys , but the Nintendo On thing, proven fake yes, imo a hint of the near future. Emagin is proof of this...Evolution

The guys over at mozlapunk have figured out his name is Bruce Westcoat, and they have his home phone number via a white pages lookup. I check his address on google maps and he lives 5 minutes from Virtual Visions.

I think this supposed Nintendo-Virtual Vision-eMagin connection is only a product of pure speculation driven by a wet dream.We'd all love to see a REAL Belmontendo ON machine, but this could be a disastrous commercial move not only for Nintendo but also for whatever else company.
Thinking of a head-mounted visor as a part of the revolutionary interface concept in the Nintendo next-gen console is pure stupidity imho.
First beacuse similar visors are already on the market (for about $200 you can get a good rimax 800x600 model for any video-outputting device with virtualvision inc. technology inside) and recommended especially for gaming consoles ,as i read on a spanish language e-commerce site.
Second because Sony and MS could easily use this kind of experience too without any fear about legal things.
This would not be a revolutionary feature, maybe a nice add-on that's not part of the out-of-the-box wow factor.
2+2 is always 4 but only if we use the left side of the brain.

Hey, anonymous. He admitted to being fake here: http://forums.nintendo.com/nintendo/board/message?board.id=revolution&message.id=206743 Apparently he´s a - wait for it - marketing guy and wanted to show how good he is at marketing. Almost fell off my chair laughing when I read that. Liked the expression ´Nintendo fanboy attention whore´, btw ;P

Even if this guy is a fake, there is a chance that this visor made by emagin could come to the Revolution. I was bored so I was looking at the FAQ about emagin's visor. This is one of the questions:

Is the Z800 3DVisor compatible with my Playstation 2, Xbox, or GameCube?
The Z800 3DVisor is not natively compatible with currently available video game consoles. You will need to use a signal converter to scale the standard NTSC signal to analog SVGA. Such converters are available from various websites. In addition, these consoles are not capable of taking advantage of the Z800 3DVisor's head-tracking and 3D capabilities. We will provide updates regarding use with upcoming models of consoles.

The last sentence is what I found interesting. I found this at this site: http://www.emagin.com/3dvisor/html/LearnMore.htm

I still think that it is unlikely considering this thing costs $900.00.

dude seriousgamer007 is not a fake. He explained it in his blog umpteen times. He got revealed by a bunch of Nintendo Employees. He was self discrediting himself so he could go back to work.

However it leaked out that he was real straight from Nintendo.

Even the Administrators said go to his blog. That is why you dont see post on the N-Forums anymore. To many people going nuts everytime he posted wanting more info.

He is real people.

No

He got banned from the nintendo forums.

And the imature 10 year olds at the nintendo forums all hated him he had maybe, 3 people there that belived him or didnt flame him, this could be of course cus everyone there follows the first flamer and continues the flamign, stating the same thing over and over again

I personally think the mods got sick of it all

SEGA President Simon Jeffery:

"I think we're really looking at which of our classic IPs are appropriate for different platforms," said Jeffrey, "We're very interested in Revolution at the moment. We obviously haven't made any announcements, but we, like other people, are talking with Nintendo about what Revolution will be, about potential opportunities on Revolution."

I have to say this. Seriousgamer is a liar. He's gives himself away all the time. Example: he posted the "uneditied" E3 demo on his blog. It's the On video. It's "uneditied" in that he put text over it and put the "Xenais" demo at the end. First of all, if they put that much effort into making it look professional throughout, I doubt that Nintendo would use the arial typeface to describe system features. And if you're going to cut something at the end, use an L cut, not a basic cut. What a retard. God, I hate that fucking liar!

This is one of the first blogs where no one believed the truth I had to tell. I do not understand what is so hard to understand, why would you just assume I am a liar. At least there is one smart person in these comments.

The Revolution is coming.

Are you ready to revolt?
