Until the Nazis used this symbol, the swastika was used by many cultures throughout the past 3,000 years to represent life, sun, power, strength, and good luck.



Even in the early twentieth century, the swastika was still a symbol with positive connotations.

During World War I, the swastika could even be found on the shoulder patches of the American 45th Division



I dont believe that the use of the swastika and The Leben Rune, is accidental, there definetly using them, microsoft put a lot of thought into there advertising,
For 3,000 years, the swastika meant life and good luck. But because of the Nazis, it has also taken on a meaning of death and hate.
the question isn't weather microsoft are using these symble, becouse they clearly are,
but its what interpritation of the symbles are microsoft using?



All the best... iamian

ok with that out of the way.


before hitlers lil involvement with the swastika it was a holy symbol, and imo its just coincidence. People always need something to gripe about this guy is just one of the many faceless bill gate haters.


Jealousy what a crappy feeling believe me.

Yes yes yes we all know that.

But - I think the Developers of X-Box 360 already KNEW that when the Majority people see the swastika today, they will associate it with the Nazi's and not with the Buddhist.

The Majority of the People have the following Images in their Brain, when they see the Image of swastika.





Thats Sure lots of Swastikas.

Makes you Think fo a Second, doesn't it?

And then you're Browsing the net and you find the following site:

Libertarian National Socialist Green Party



We believe in a resurrection of traditional methods of the pre-Christian past, including naturalism and nationalism, and while these are demonized in our current time, we realize they are necessary to end the decay of our society.

The mission of the LNSG is to make healthy changes to a sick system, using the values of the ancients in modern form.

While globalism and populism are against nature and Tradition, we turn instead to time-proven methods of leadership, and strip away unnecessary emotion, both "love" and "hate," to create a rational future for our people.

And their Signature:

So he was a Bavarian, which was a sub group of Austrian?

Well, its not as easy in Europe. The national boundaries of one country do not nessarily indicate the race boundaries. That was actually one of hitlers criticism's as well. Austria and Germany both have the same language-almost but they are different in the fact that the Austrian monarchy holds sway in Austria but they are not accepted by the people of Germany. Also religion plays an important role in the region with the Austrians more orthodox Roman Catholic than the Germans. Bavaria tends to identify more with the Austrians in religion but they do not see the Austrian monarchs as an authority, they have kings of their own. Its complicated but if you read MEIN KAMPF book-1 Hitler speaks in detail about his childhood and about his identity as a german.
Their is also the people of the EAST MARK who were considered as germans too. Putting it simply, Hitler considered germany to be not merely a country but a representation of a race of people that have descened from common ancestary.



Why would he be the public head of this... if he didn't fit the bill? if you are not even allowed in this Elite Group... how do you CONTROL IT and get those OF THE ELITE to follow?

I think you have mixed up what they ment about the "aryan". The Nazis didnt say that only blonde people should rule or something of that sort, they said that to develope the race of germans further it was imperative that they start breeding a pure stock of people, this pure stock was essentially the blonde haired blue eyed people. They wanted to breed such a stock which they felt was the most superior to replace the one that was presently exsisting. They didnt mean that to rule you had to have the "aryan" look. If you look at the top Nazis you will see that hardly one of two of them were blonde and most of them were dark haired people like hitler. Also they dont consider all blonde people to be superior only the german blondes that are supposed to be the original aryans! Hitler was infact quite the opposite of what was desireable, he was not blonde nor was he physically exceptional. That is the contridiction. Neither was Goring or the rest of the Nazi party leaders.
As for why they let Hitler rule if he was not the purest, it would most likely be because they valued personal ability even more than racial superiority.

The Problem is not IF they see or stare at it - they are watching it anyway, and the Subliminal part of this Message remains hidden.

Subliminal part of this message is- "Were only NAZI if YOU are" !!

If the person whos watching this is unaware of what NAZI is or to look for the symbol they will see it for what it is- controllers being displayed. But if you are basically twisted then I guess you can find Nazi symbols all over the place- on the net, on the TV and even in your Soup !!


You think it was again an ACCIDENT that Swastikas are all over Microsoft?

You think it is an accident that YOU just happened to create this thread against Microsoft ??



First they ACCIDENTLY put the character for Swastikas, so that the Jewish community had to ask them kindly to remove it. And don't tell me that the programmers did not know

Well most programmers cant spend millions on trying to find if some shadow or a reflection or a buch of trees appear to be NAZI symbols can they ?? The important thing is that they are removing them when they are brought to their notice ! Microsoft has thousands of programmers all over the globe do you think they spend every waking moment trying to figure out if some bytes of code happen to form a Nazi swastika on execution !



Let me tell you, that if I was Jewish and saw the Advertisment for X-Box 360, I would not be a Happy Jew anywmore.

And thank God you are not Jewish !!

Most Jews didnt even notice the symbol, even if they did they wouldnt care! Its not the symbol that sent them to the camps it is was the people behind the symbol. The symbol is just one of the many symbols of oppression against the Jews, their have been many through out the ages its just that this is the most famous.


Everybody was Outraged when Prince Harry wore a Swastika on his costume for a "Fancy Dress Party" - so that he had to Appologise.

The people were outraged because they thought he was advocating that ideology. Even though he was doing it for fun it was improper for a person of his status to do so. Just as it was said that Bush was a satanist because he supported the Texas Longhorns !!


Is Microsoft trying to tell us something or was it an Accident?

Yeah they were, which incidentally was totally missed by everybody. It was that the Xbox360 controller looks much cooler than before!

The only Accident here is the attempt to make an issue out this !!

Heh, I dont see it as really a bad thing. Remember when the word "gay" used to mean happy? And now it means homosexuality. Same with the Nazi symbol IMO. Personally I dont see anything wrong with it. The contollers are spinning in a 360 degree motion (circle), putting on a nice display of the work of art that microsoft created.


Beat me to it. It is the xbox 360....therefore the controllers are just situated in a 360 degree circle...that happens to look somewhat like a swastika.

well you may be right aabout the second, I actually have one of the symbols mentioned in the thread in my school, but Im pretty sure the theta is just a 1 inside a 0. in computer speek one means on and zero off thus its appropriate for the power button

Yes agreed what i was implying is that symbols however are significant and can be used for purposes unknown to those not it the know

You all keep saying how it use to be a good luck symbol, etc. But they were on a different angle than the one the Nazis used, and that same angle is on the xbox 360 ad. The angle on the ad isn't that of the good luck swastikas, it's that of the nazi swastika.

Now thats what I'm talking about. Someone doing a little research and coming up with an ad that shows a non swastika XBox360 ad. Now if this is some huge menacing conspiracy they seem to be half assing it in the ad department ya know? Some ads have swastikas some don't . Hmmm it seems this is a random occurence

Well if you put the controllers together I see the similarity, but I can not tell my son only have one control.


The graphics are outstanding.

Does anyone else notice that the Germans had the best looking uniforms, the best looking designed tanks, the first cool looking jets, and rockets etc... it's like they were provided with the best of the best. And why not take a symbol that ment good to someone else and use it as your own? It just might give you that extra push to get the job done. However, it was not so, since the rest of the world ganged up on them and from then on it was a no win fight for the Germans.

Now here comes Microsoft, trying to gain the same control and dominance on the rest of the world and use as many of the past symbols as the what was once popular. There is nothing new under the Sun, it's what you do with it that will make it stand out.

After the war, it is well know that a lot of the Nazi's were employed in the US. Mostly for their knowledge. Perhaps they ended up having families that had kids that were employed by Microsoft. And thus keeping the dream alive.

The swastika, eventhough it is ment to be a symbol of hate to those familiar with the war, it really doesn't mean that big a deal to me. For it is a sticker that was on every tank I built in my early days as a child.. model building. Again, I bought the tanks because they were the coolest looking at the time. Compare it with an american tank, and we have no contest. Panzer, Tiger.. now those were tanks!

And again, it's a symbol and nothing more. It's like the old addage... Sticks and Stones may break my bones... but a swatika will never hurt me!

This reminds me of the number 9 and 11 conspiracy shortly after 9/11. After that day, people were saying that everywhere they looked in movies, and pictures the number 9 and or 11 was there. Many of them occuring before 9/11, so it must be that Hollywood and others knew about 9/11 and were trying to warn us. If you look hard enough, you can make just about anything fit anything you want it to.

Hogwash. Here's just a few of them...

Thomas J. Watson, head of IBM meeting with Hitler...


Prescott Bush


Allen Dulles

The list of American Nazis is actually long and suprisingly distinguished, and let's not forget Operation Paperclip.

life does imitate art sometimes, the books and movie's and the writers who write them do have incredible forsight, The Final Jihad, a novel written before and published just after the Oklahoma City bombing. It was written by Martin Keating, whose brother Frank was the governor of Oklahoma at the time, one of the terrorists was an American named Tom McVay.

The Lone Gunmen Filmed in January 2000, and aired on 3/4/2001

I spilt a bottle of ketchup once, and it drooled out and looked like a devil with a whip. Does that mean heinz ketchup is in on a nazi conspiracy?

Souljah, I think you see swastikas and race conspiracies everywhere. I honestly dont see a swatika in the formation.

Its like all those Christian nuts who flipped out over Gorbechav's birthmark "resembling" a dragon wiping the stars from heaven. I didnt see it, but then again, i generally do not really look for such things.
