Official Retraction of SEGA TGS Rumor

by JW


There has been a lot of controversy regarding a recently posted rumor regarding SEGA’s possible Tokyo Game Show line-up. Now, I was originally very defensive of this piece because of who sent it in. He, a long-time go-to guy named Rob, has sent me exclusive tips for four years, and until this most recent one, they were ALL accurate.

Regardless, after the link had been posted by reader “Cedge”, I immediately contacted Rob via GoogleIM.

If anything, this whole experience will force us to reevaluate our policy as far as rumors go. We may just stop reporting them entirely.

So, while Rob is (hopefully) sending his messages to Kotaku, Xboxic and all those other sites who linked to this, all I can say to you guys is that I am sorry for this whole damn mess. I assure you that this will NOT happen again. I have to say, I applaud you guys for being right on top of this. That’s why we have the comment section open — for both praise, and to call us on our shit when we’re wrong.

So again, I apologize for the story. We’ll continue to give y’all the most up to date NEWS regarding the Xbox 360 and Microsoft, with the wit and borderline-insanity you’ve come to expect, however the page has been taken down, and no further mention of it will be made after today.

For anyone else who decides to send rumors our way, do us one favor — make sure the source material is in ENGLISH! For Christ sake… English. Or Klingon. I can read Klingon.

  1. Go Nintendo » Blog Archive » Sega TGS list = fake- What are you waiting for? Says:

    [...] a big surprise to anyone I am sure, but the original source of the list has posted a retraction and apology. Hopefully some good will come from the fake list. [...]

  2. WagDig Says:

    Well this wasn´t big suprise but thx for the correction.

  3. Sneck Says:

    Pretty obvious this wasn’t a real list, it was far too good to expect from Sega nowadays.

    The damage it would have done to Segas real TGS line up could be substantial though, any list they can come up with now will look very poor compared to the fake one.

    Good work on the apology though fellas.
