Final Skynet Research Viral Update - Password Discovered!

May 20, 2009

Skynet Research Viral

In just a few days, Terminator Salvation will arrive in theaters. And that should mean that all the viral games related to the movie should be coming to an end, right? There's the one on twitter which seems to be wrapping up, but what about Skynet Research? That one has been running for a while and we haven't had any updates on it for a while - until today. Some of you may remember (or have discovered on your own) that on the Products page, if you mouse over the "P", a password box pops up. Don't know the password? We do! Although all credit goes to for first figuring it out. You'll find the password below.

Password: skynetresearchinitiatephasetwoprojectjudgementday

So what does it do when you put in the password? It turns the Products page red and starts transmitting new code and data on top of the products. If you click each of the products, the new text now indicates what each of the robots are really for - such as collecting humans or terminating humans. It's somewhat of a not-so-subtle hint at how that the robots are actually planning to take over the world and that we can ultimately understand their language (wink, wink). For now, that's all we know the password really does, but it's still cool to check out. I've added a screenshot of one of the robot products below for a closer look.

I'm curious if there are more uses for this password. This seems like a pretty dull ending. If anyone finds anything else out there or finds more hidden parts of the Skynet Research website, be sure to let us know!

Thanks for the shout out. I have yet to find out how our forum member got the password. There's only a few days left, so I doubt they'll be much more for this password.

@Darrin reviews and rating is rubbish they gave a film like Wanted an rating of 9 out of 10 and gave The Dark Knight 8.5 and Iron Man an 8.5 out of 10.

@ darrin and dan the man, iron man deserves less than 8.5, dark knight could be a 9 and wanted could be a 7.

I just got out of the midnite showing....plain and simple: I thought I was watching a spoof. I am a huge fan of the Terminator franchise and wasn't even pissed about Arnold not doing a part, but the film was so disappointing. The plot was weak to say the least. There were probably 10 or so lines, video sequences and ideas that showed up almost identically as they were portrayed in the original two films. The previews were the most misleading propaganda I've ever believed. I honestly sit here in disbelief at what actually took place during the last 2 hours of my life.

#8 is SkyNet, don't trust it . . . Very good movie and stands on it's own - if you are expecting the other 3 terminator movies, don't. I found this movie quite enjoyable and look forward to the next one. That's right, I'll be back...

Terminator: Salvation: It has enough pace and excitement to keep action fans switched on, This is Sam Worthington's movie, and he steals it, decent action film, far superior to the awful Terminator 3. Despite some laughably silly plot elements, McG has created an overall entertaining movie experience. Being a rabid fan that grew up on the franchise created by James Cameron, the idea of McG getting behind the camera for this sequel was slightly nauseating, and yet, by some miracle, the fourth film in the franchise is (barely) passable.
