Today in outrageous IGN rumors: Microsoft or Sony quitting consoles
IGN loves to feed into wild speculation and rumors, especially during the slow gaming news season of Janurary, but I feel like this is so ridiculous that I’m surprised it made it to the front page.
Apparently some guy we’ve never heard of, Nanea Reeves, who works for some company we never knew existed, Gaikai, claims that “not all of the current console makers will have one more generation. That will be the big news at E3.” Yea, during a time when both companies are hitting record sales for each console, one of them will decide to stop all this console nonsense once and for all! That this guy’s company is a cloud-based server that hosts games and whose major competition would be from console makers seems like something we should point out too.
Probably also a good time to point out that Gaikai prominently shows “Farming Simulator 2011” as one of their featured games. Not here to judge, just thought I should point that one out.
For the last couple of days I’ve been watching IGN and have seen at least one ridiculous rumor surface each day. Maybe this should be a regular segment?
