Yes, it is, and the original source material actually got deleted three days after publication if I recall correctly.

I can understand your concerns about online gaming taking over, but I don't think it's an insurmountable problem. For example, you could easily set up two televisions and two games consoles in the same room, connect them via the systems' online gaming network, and there you go: you're playing a game with/against your friend while sitting next to them.
Do you really think that people are going to buy two of the same game system just to do that? I wouldn't. I see that as a waste of money. It would be much better if they just went the way Warhawk did with online splitscreen. That is awesome, but of course nobody seems to realize it.

I enjoy online splitscreen, a real shame that none of the top quality online shooters allow it. I think Halo 3 is the only recentish title i've played which allows that. :|

If anyone wants to go through all of this and look for hints of a new Rayman 4 game then go for it. I'm just to lazy. :)

They have a banner (or something like that) of Rayman's name above a door. And they seem to have forgotten all about him despite this.

In the future? When systems and monitors are much cheaper? Which was my entire point? Yes.

Good for you.

Having one screen for each player is far better than splitscreen. I never liked having my screen cut in half, or even worse.

Where? I watched all the videos and I couldn't find it.

It's visible in the very first second of "Take a Peek", among other times.

Yep it's there alright, too bad you can't click 'Take a peek' on that door. :P

I wonder if they are trying to tell us something.

The description of the first video was 'Someone sneaked into the Ubisoft office, trying to get a glimpse at the E3 lineup. Will you manage to find it all?'.

And then there was a Rayman logo.

Then maybe the rumor about Michel is true...with that I mean the one where he's working on a Rayman game.

I'm not sure; it's not unusual for a company to have posters and stuff relating to their franchises. Plus, it's the logo from R2. I'm not keeping my hopes up, but this was an interesting find nonetheless.

From my point of view, all other props in the rooms that relate to games were of fairly recent projects and work in progress. And then this Rayman logo is above average size and placed above what looks like a big door. In the most optimistic sense, I'd say the magic we were seeking for more than 7 years is found behind that door!

I wonder if it was supposed to be hidden. They didn't showcase it like they did with the other props and logos.

They're probably trying to get us doing exactly this.

Don't get your hopes up so quickly, it'll only lead to bigger disappointment when E3 passes without any word of Rayman. We'll just see at E3. ;)

This is my motto.

The logo could have been up for a while, you know. Maybe they just forgot to take it down after they quit making Rayman games.
