He never 'admitted he faked it' in fact quite the opposite, he has doubled down.Ya.
He did some tweets this past week out of nowhere saying PS5 is weaker and people went ape shit. He got called out for it and admitted he faked it, so the whole debacle should be over and it's back to normal.
Yet, his troll tweets seem like they created alternate universe mind sets.
Is he reliable? I have no idea, people claim he has a track record. Importantly, he said that it would likely only be a short term thing. Too many people react to the headline and not the substance.
