Why do people think RUMORS are facts?

For the same reason that people think OPINIONS are facts.

I like chicken nuggets. Is that fact or opinion?

That's a fact to you, and your opinion to me. If you really want to play with semantics like that, I'll reword my statement.

For the same reason that people think their view on things should be the view everyone else has as well.

Sometimes opinions can be factually wrong as well. Even Hitler had an opinion, doesn't mean he's factually right though. Sometimes people have to get other people to think a certain way. The right way.

Microsoft can always lay the rumors to rest by stating if it's true or not. Why have they remained silent on such a polarizing subject as blocking non-1st buy games? Sony US has stated they don't want to do it (but stopped short of stating they won't), Nintendo obviously hasn't...so what's stopping MS from making a simple statement?

Because they probably aren't ready to start talking about next-gen consoles yet. They want to announce next-gen on their own terms, not to quell a bunch of rumors.

How about...it's not their job to dictate what everyone's talking about.
Let people say what they want, it's not MS's job to convince people or otherwise of what they believe. The Government has stated multiple times that 9/11 wasn't a cover up. Doesn't stop the conspiracy nuts still believing it was.

Same reason Republicans scream and shout Obama is taking away their rights. Simple minded people will believe anything they hear without any form or research, and spread the idea onto other simple minded people, all too ignorant to do actual research..

Very bad comparison. I don't have a religion but I accept other peoples beliefs. Don't know why you are insulting people who believe in "god".
