Kotaku yellow journalism at its finest.

PS4 will block used games, and online play will cost money, PS4 will be called Orbis, etc...

Not a single rumor that came from them ended up being true... Even remotely for that matter.

That's why I stopped going to Kotaku after college.

They have become so irrelevant and more like TMZ of the game world

Online play could still potentially cost money.....did you hear them say it will remain free, at the conference?

And nobody speculated that it would be called Orbis. It's a damn code name for the hardware.

Ehh I have heard contrary to the online play costing money. Also yes they called it Orbis in big, and obnoxious title's on their website.

Furthermore, a number of rumors that Kotaku reported earlier were verified at this presentation.

Extremely vague rumors like you could interact with your phone. Nothing they have said has been anything outside of rumor milling, and nonsense for the most part. However if you throw enough crap at the wall some it will stick.

It could, but the other things they posted at the same time turned out to be false, and if there were a new service called "PlayStation World" to replace PlayStation Plus, as was rumoured, then why would the PlayStation Plus logo have appeared in the presentation?

It just seems that Kotaku posted lots of rumours, and the ones that other sites posted first turned out to be fairly reliable, while the ones that Kotaku posted tended to be wrong.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. If you predict that it rains every day and eventually it does, you aren't +1 for correct predictions. You're +1 minus every bulls*** piece of "news" you reported like it was fact.
