Lol. Well then, that makes it even more hilarious.
And even checking the comments at Eurogamer:
-A person claiming to work at play.com saying that only MH3 is on the site and the others were fake and made by someone else
-Another person saying that play.com had MH3 listed for months
-Other people that also saw the 4chan post
-One guy that said that he posted the image over there, and Eurogamer grabbed it as "news"

And Joystiq still grabbed the news and cited Eurogamer as "the source". :p

It would be nice it all were real, and MH in some way is expected..but, some need to tone it down. Heck, where's the "Amazon outed Kid Icarus for Wii U" news? :p

It's the most shameful display since Triology. And even then IGN didn't actually run a front page story on it.

Friday could be epic or disappointing.
If it were going to be epic, Sony would probably be holding an actual press conference instead of livestreaming a (probably) prerecorded video.

Friday probably won't be a complete dud, though, since it looks like a new Phantasy Star Portable will be announced. That'd be bigger than any Japanese Vita-exclusive title announced to date by a significant margin.

Hahahahaa, this is too funny. I bet the guy responsible for that photoshop is enjoying himself. I don't expect anything special at that broadcast on Friday, if there were it'd be leaked already and I don't mean a bad photoshop when I say leak

This isn't the first similar instance of viral stupidity, sadly. Last year, a number of major sites reported on a supposed eShop launch lineup, the source which was actually just some Japanese blog listing the eShop titles confirmed to date. Several even claimed it was published in Famitsu, even though it would have taken them less than five minutes to check Famitsu.com's 3DS section and see that no such story had been published.

God, what fucking hacks.
