Seems someone is finding some quotes in japanese in the wallpaper. No idea if anything of value is there, yet.

I'm moving this to speculation because this doesn't appear to have anything to do with this ARG.

How exactly do you know? FFS. It hasn't even been finished yet. We all know Bungie has a penchant for hiding things in plain sight. Astounding.

At any rate, anyone with experience in japanese should have a look, as I have no knowledge of the language.

I don't know...and in fact neither do you...ergo it's speculation.

It appears that there's binary code mixed in as well, unless there's a Japanese Kanji that looks like a 0, in which case there are a bunch of ones, but I'm not fluent with either language, so all I can do is point and go "Hey, there's something there, now tell me what it is."

Someone brought this up awhile ago about cortana and the letters that scroll on her.

Everyone kinda seemed to shrug it off, but maybe there is something to it. I hope they keep up with this.

This whole thing was discussed on the HBO forums the day the wallpaper was released (I know, I was in the middle of the thing), and the consensus seemed to be that the words were more metaphorically tied to the Halo story than literally.

Maybe there's something there, but more likely than not, this is just cold speculation.

Lol yeah, there was some Japanese in the Matrix code. I wonder how they could read that stuff so fast.
