Maybe Microsoft is the one starting rumors and leaking things.

They might be looking to see what people's reactions are to always online and all that stuff. Since the reactions are so negative, they will not do it then.

They're setting the bar so low we can be nothing but pleasantly surprised at the reveal?



Good plan, actually.

Actually I'm a Sony fanboy. Look up my name. I just wanted to cheer guys up here a little with the terrible rumors. I seriously think it is possible though that Microsoft is just pulling some stunt here, and they won't actually do all this suicidal stuff.

Or, you know...the rumors are...rumors. Just like all the s*** rumors for PS4 that were wrong.

I hate listening to dreams. It's like flipping through a stack of pictures. If I'm not in any of them, and nobody's having sex, I just...don't care

Some companies do this. As well as creating accounts on popular boards and gauging the market, etc. It's normal.

While I wouldn't put it out of the realm of possibility, I seriously doubt any of the info is coming from Microsoft, especially since some of it is verifiable with patent filings from them.

It's more likely that it's coming from rival companies to get people to switch sides before the systems ever come out.

If people weren't so dumb as to believe rumors that lack any semblance of a credible source, there wouldn't be an issue in the first place.

But wait, I'm expecting the average gamer to actually have common sense.
