I saw the original post on Reddit the day it got posted, i found it very strange that many gaming sites were posting the pic as the real deal. Oh well.

Even worse the site in the link says it was leaked to them by their "credited sources" who are in the know   
thats the exact reason why I take online journalism with a boulder of salt

I didn't see the original post, however I'm not surprised someone stole it from Reddit. Yes, a lot of content on Reddit is reposts, but the same sort of thing happened when the FBI was asking for suspects in the Boston Bombings. Someone said they recognized one of the bombers as Sunil Tripathi, and CNN reported it was Sunil Tripathi. Gaming journalism needs better fact checking. The same thing happened when someone decided that they would "troll" r/gaming and say that they knew someone who worked at Bethesda, and knew that it was a fact, that the next Fallout did indeed take place in Boston.

Real journalists pull this **** and we can't even post news stories that are pretty damn legit *cough*Durango NOT always online*cough* on a news site run by users that aren't journalists?

Riiiiight....


It's ok, keep trying to hide the fact this site has a hard on for Sony.

I see journalist in the title, but I don't see any journalist websites or anything. What are we talking about here?

I think certain articles about Xbox Infinity got huge temp. ratings on n4g.  I believe it was the typical places: kotaku, ign, etc.

It's not just this site. It's a general shift in attitude towards Playstation and Sony in general. 


N4G just kinda reflects the general attitude of the gaming community. 


Not to say that there isn't a lot of biased BS now, just that there always will be and that is part of the community holding an opinion.
