#Truthfact No.1
No live stream for the Xbox One Gamescom press conference for real reasons. Xbox One architecture is still not fully completed and latest versions of the SDK from couple of weeks ago dropped the perfomance by 15 to 20% across the board. Now before Xbox fans get mad at me: this happens all the time during development and will be eventually fixed, BUT there is no chance for a early October release.

#Truthfact No. 2
And it won't be released for all 21 countries at the same time. Localization reasons are absolute 100% bull***, period. Truthfact. Knock-offs as launch titles and Smartglass will be ready as well, but there doesn't seem to be a coherent vision for the console's launch.

#Truthfact No. 3
Sony PS4 will launch in late October - SDKs are ready.

#Truthfact No. 4
For those people who were mad about Bayonetta 2 going exclusively Wii U, you'll be somewhat unhappy about what Microsoft is money-hatting PlatinumGames for. Other Japanese developers will join PG as well, but PG is 100% on board. The game is not aimed at North Americans or Europeans, so expect a truly Japanese feeling title (probably for the JPN Xbox One launch).

#Truthfact No.5
There was a MOBA developed by Bigpark, but it was "nuked" and now a lot of studios focus on TV services. The best talent went to Big Tusk or left SM (?) entirely. Rare is still focused on Kinect despite whatever you've heard.

#Truthfact No.6
New Indie policy is still not set in stones and will be finalized after the Xbox One launch.

#Truthfact No.7
Early September surprise. Apologizing it advance. Everything I saw over the last 24 months was that nonsense of a "Kinect-less" SKU. So I can confirm that there are "whispers" of a Xbox One SKU without Kinect early next year around March/April. This isn't set in stone and they'll probably wait and see how launch numbers will look like.

He has around a 50% track record with Xbox One stuff, so 3 or maybe 4 of those could be right.

Much lower. His only E3 prediction that could be considered remotely correct was World of Tanks would be at the show. But a number of other sites had posted that rumor the day before:

Others were

* DRM will get worse - It disappeared entirely
* Mirrors Edge 2 would be at MS conference and was Kinect exclusive - completely wrong. The game leaked as an Amazon listing so he can't even claim credit for that.
*Prince of Persia at MS conference - wrong
*60 minute limit to family sharing - wrong
*GPU being downclocked - so wrong, it got upgraded
* PSN online play wouldn't be behind a paywall - wrong
* Xbox Live wouldn't offer F2P games - wrong
* Indies were limited to 2 cores and only 3GB - wrong

The guy only posts anti - Xbox rumors. He collates existing rumors (PS4 launch date and Microsoft not streaming all of Gamescom) and invents positive/negative rumors to suit.

Most of those are wrong now but that was before E3. Microsoft made the huge changes with panic after E3.

DRM will get worse - before E3 since changed after bad reception
* Mirrors Edge 2 would be at MS conference and was Kinect exclusive - I agree wrong.
*Prince of Persia at MS conference - Dead wrong
*60 minute limit to family sharing - This was correct but we didn't know about it until it was removed.
*GPU being downclocked - Before E3 again and they were still working on it.
* PSN online play wouldn't be behind a paywall - wrong
* Xbox Live wouldn't offer F2P games - wrong
* Indies were limited to 2 cores and only 3GB - This was true before the 180.

Due to recent economic conditions, and the rising cost of Electricity, Gas and Oil, the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off.

Good lord, even after E3 you people still believe these clowns on NeoGAF? Its the same as believing the kids on here.

I'm wrong for the right.

Cboat is Neogaf's golden calf.
They say that he is 100% correct with his "insider information", and you are the spawn of the devil if you say anything else.
If something is close of being right, it always count as correct. Even if it was just a small part.
If something is wrong or not even close, it always count as "he was correct but they did some last minute changes after he gave us his insider information".
It's pretty easy to be 100% correct if we follow those parameters.

Its strange for posters to look up to another poster like hes a god.

Its just some kid who one day figured hed throw predictions up. But wrote it in a odd way to "help hide his identity". Hey clever move on the kids part,. I guess it shows just how easy it is to start a cult these days. They ignore the fact that hes wrong almost always. The only stuff hes right on are things you hear about from other sources first.

NeoGAF is a joke.

And seriously? Now they have a prophet? No wonder no one can take them seriously anymore.
