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?

About Ryan Saul

Hailing from Portland, OR I work by day and blog by night. I like to consider myself a video game connoisseur, playing as many new things as I can get my hands on. Its hard to hold me down to one game for very long before I move on to the next big thing. Luckily, that works pretty well in terms of video game blogging.

    Part of the fun of reading IGN are the the high number of ridiculous articles they write. Determining whether the IGN writers are writing seriously and therefore have some sort of learning disability or if they’re producing silly articles for entertainment value is one of the reasons I frequent that site.
