To further celebrate the occasion, we have something fun we've been dying to share with you. It is our honor to show you the "alternate" ending for the game - with a slight twist.

69w ago - Tragnarion Studios Lead Game Designer Omar Salleh has announced today that Outbreak will be infecting PlayStation Network soon.
Below are the details, to quote: Since our announcement in May about the upcoming release of our third-person shooter Scourge: Outbreak, we've been hard at work wrapping things up and getting the game ready for launch in a couple of months' time.

When the 360 console experiences a "general hardware" failure as called by the glorious MS representatives, three flashing red lights appear around the power button, in lieu of the four green lights indicating normal operation. In the early months after the console's launch, Microsoft stated that the Xbox 360's failure rate was within the consumer electronics industry's typical 3% to 5%.
