I thought this deserved its own thread simply because of the effort that went into this thing:

I made this fake. Let's see if I just got myself banned.

In the video, GAF member kankki describes how he used his 3D printing lab to construct an elaborate fake.

Well played. In the age of 3D printing, this serves as a reminder not to believe in things.

Well played. Showing the process is a smart move as well. A sobering reminder to trust nothing!

Gotta say I don't understand the reverence for this guy. :shrug:

edit: and pretty sure he trolled like 3 dozen people not 'the world', lol.

Good job trying to contain the leak Nintendo. I just never thought you would go as far as creating a fake fake leak. Well I'm not buying it.

I'm wondering why someone would go to such lengths to create a fake "leak". What a waste of time.
You could argue it's a social experiment to see what insane lengths GAF would go to see if something is real. Case in point, just look at the insanity in the thread, mainly #TreeGate

Can't watch right now, but I assume the tree was intentionally placed as a red herring. Nice job!

It's all a cover up. This is to cover up that it's real, it's a deceitful Junior! Trust no Juniors! Junior conspiracy!

Why do people debate whether an image of a controller is fake or not? What a waste of time.

It's called having fun.

Brilliant.

But at this point I also would't be surprised if the final thing ends up similar in concept (due to the patent and several reports on the whole no button thing).
