The swedish retailer Webhallen (who are huge among gamers) just added the following Xbox One bundle to their system:

They also added entries for a HL3 "Chapter 1 DLC" and a "Half Life 3 Season Pass 1" for the swedish equivalent of 100$. I thought it was pretty funny.

‘Tropico’ Spin-off Llama Simulator Announced

Bracknell, UK, 1st April 2014 – You’ve built them a ranch. You‘ve watched them for hours and hours. You’ve fostered and nourished them. You’ve adored them. Now it’s time to take control…and assume the role of an exotic Llama. Llama Simulator is the brilliant new spin-off of the universally acclaimed Tropico series. For the first time ever play as a Llama living on the island paradise of Tropico. Devour delicious fresh grass and explore Tropico on four feet - or patrol the streets and disrupt Tropican traffic during rush hour.

Customize your Llama: select fur colour, size, and the length of your tongue - but make sure you help it stand out from the herd by equipping it with a huge range of fashionable accessories. Enjoy ridiculous hats, a variety of false beards and even leather jackets (goat leather, of course!). Plus, Llama Simulator also features awe-inspiring full 1080p HD graphics rendered in an astounding 60 FPS. Just imagine how gorgeous that Llama fur is going to look.

Experience no story or campaign at all and finally understand what it means to be a Llama living a life of luxury on the island of Tropico in Llama Simulator. Coming 2014.

Features of Llama Simulator
  • For the first time: Explore Tropico as a Llama – either from the viewpoint of the chaser or the llama
  • No obligations: Llama Simulator provides you with zero thrilling missions and no absorbing campaign – do whatever you like, when you like.
  • The beauty of silence: Experience absolutely no compelling background story in non-existent breath-taking cut scenes, not narrated by professional voice actors.
  • Customize your Llama and make its appearance a unique sight with countless flamboyant accessories
  • Play as Hector, El Presidente’s favorite Llama!
  • Massive graphics
  • Llamas

There are no good April Fool's Day jokes anymore. The Internet age has made this day so incredibly tired. Feel free to post your nofunallowed.jpgs now.

Oh lord this one got me. I didn't even realize it was a joke til your post.
(Part of the reason was because it showed up yesterday.)
I read the pop-up TWICE and was like why... why would I want to do that? You'd have to be Kanye West levels of narcissistic.

New light-novel style RPG announced by Square Enix JP - http://team043.jp/

This was also posted by DengekiOnline website. It says something about April Fool's but I can't make out exactly what they're saying using Google Translate. Any Japanese speaker want to confirm?

The sentence containing April Fools says "Now even though today is April Fools, this production has nothing to do with that whatsoever, it really is a teaser site for a new work."
Of course, that may just be part of the joke. I don't know.

What saddens me a bit, is that some of these jokes would actually result in more exciting and fresh products than most of the real products being made by the same people are.

Instead of having to resort to fake stuff such as Blizzard fighting games, Pokemon google map apps, etc. it would be great if the industry / publishers would actually allow the developers to create such things for real instead.

(But no, they don't bring in the big bucks, assumedly, so why bother eh? Let's just spend our time joking about them...)

That XB1 subreddit, neogaf change is some God tier trolling. Would have been even more amazing several months ago when consolewarz was at a fever pitch.
