Ourcolony.net is this year's site. After you guess the correct password to enter the site you are asked to form a colony or team. Recruit five members to your team and the team will get their first challenge and more challenges will open up as even more members join your team. The rewards for completing challenges are partial pictures of what we can only assume is the next Xbox.
Microsoft, of course, is denying any connection between the next Xbox and Ourcolony.net, but there are a lot of obvious clues that point towards their involvement. A lot of the same things we saw at Ilovebees.com have very similar looking cousins on Ourcolony. Also, the logo of Ourcolony is an ant and during the Game Developers Converence XNA Architect J Allard was sporting a shirt with the same ant logo on it. Also, fliers featuring the same ant have been appearing in major US and UK cities and were also prominently placed at the Sony Metreon in San Francisco around the PSP launch. Sneaky Microsoft trying to steal Sony's thunder.
The most interesting thing about Ourcolony.net is that, just like Ilovebees.com, there is a clock ticking down that will hit zero at 8 PM PDT on May 12th which is four days before Microsoft's scheduled pre-E3 press conference where they have promised to reveal the next Xbox in all of its glory. What will be revealed on May 12th? No one knows and that is the fun of playing the game.
