We've known about QD and SO since last June. Why do people keep bringing them up like we didn't already know about them. It's good that we have more specific timeframes for their release other than 2014, but come on.

don't think it was confirmed for 2014 yet? thats why people are excited if that rumors turns out to be true. alan wake took forever to come out.

Sony Studios have mastered the art of ninja. Even though they were sent to Wii U, it has no games. Even though they are making games for the PS4, PS4 has no games. No games anywhere because the games themselves have become ninja.

It's crazy, I know. This is what happens when you transcend game development and become something else entirely. What's that you ask Mihael? Legend Mihael, they become legend.

Destiny not coming to PS4, confirmed!!!!

kinda thinking MS might be trying to build up their own insider to combat the likes of GAF's most prolific insiders, like CBOAT, etc... i mean send a guy out with plenty of recon, and let him dole out infoes here and there to build up his credibility.

it's sort of like how MS put Albert/Major Nelson/AstroTurfers on GAF and reddit (and wherever else) to combat negativity, except we see ntkrnl as 'one of us'... hmm. ¬_¬

Sony Insider/Employee.
I'm leaning to the controlled leaks side. That highly detailed launch list for T2 countries did it for me.

You don't think some dumbass with a spreadsheet can post the contents on the internet?

I'm like... amused and concerned at all of the conspiracy theories going around here. Fun times.

It's really weird how this quickly turned into a conspiracy thread. It's also weird the way CBOAT had to create a thread in the midst of all these leaks, and it got locked pretty quickly.

I don't know what to believe anymore.

Penello already tried this with his viral entry last year by posting a pic with hi gaf on a white board inside MS and infiltrating the ranks to spread misinformation on behalf of MS.

And it was a $400 well spent. No refunds by the way.

What are you talking about? Ninjas are honor-bound to give refunds. Just have to catch one first...

Haha. We can agree on that. :)

Also, welcome to GAF. That was one heck of an entrance!

If this is a controlled leak, the $399 console was leaked in order to feel out its popularity before committing to it.

I'm pretty sure SO was confirmed 2014 already, as was QD (people just assumed it was going to slip to 2015).

Some are just quick on that Megaton trigger I think. Anything " leaked " ends up being a MEGATON!!!!!!!! no matter how small the info actually is.

Crackdown in 2016? Forza Horizon 2? Not exactly mind blowing stuff there. A new colored system? When did that ever become a megaton for any system?

I think the biggest megaton is that Halo is being pushed to 2015 despite MS saying otherwise just a little bit ago about Halo hitting in 2014. Meaning Sony pretty much has the Holiday season to itself right now with no big game hitting the X1 during the Holiday season ,especially if Overdrive hits in October. Halo 2 is your big holiday game? Really?

I dare you to find an instance where Microsoft officially announced the new Xbox One in 2014. I've looked, since people keep saying this, and I can't find it.

This is what Rob Semsey said (I was wrong; thought it was Phil Spencer):

https://twitter.com/RobSemsey/status/420252431105003521

Microsoft has not officially stated that Halo 5 will be released in 2014.

$399 XB1 this year? "Maybe one without an Optical Disc Drive."

$399? Really? So basically an objectively worse console at the same price as the PS4?

It should be like $299 if it's disc-less AND without Kinect.

No they did not. Spencer was specifically asked to say "yay or nay" and he responded with something along the lines of "Your Halo journey continues in 2014."

Now doesn't that sound like a very obtuse way of saying it? Why can't he just talk strait like he normally does and say "Yes, it will release in 2014." I kind of passed this off earlier, but now I'm not so sure.

He also said that the official name of the next title wasn't announced yet. Whether or not it will be called Halo 5 isn't certain.

And it was a $400 well spent. No refunds by the way.

Edit:


See this? This is why I cannot be stopped. I'm the best ever. I'm the most brutal and vicious, the most ruthless poster there has ever been. No one can stop me. Mihael is a conqueror? No! He's no Alexander! I'm Alexander! I'm the best ever. I'm Kaz Hirai. I'm Kutaragi. There's never been anyone like me. I'm from their cloth. There is no one who can match me. My style is impetuous, my defense is impregnable, and I'm just ferocious.

You're an asset to Wrasslegaf. We're glad to have you.

what's the difference between a guy who has been here so long that he has been leaking accurate information since before the Xbox 360 came out and a guy that literally joined yesterday and starts info dumping while confirmed insiders make hints as to all not being what it seems?

HMMM. I WONDER

seriously, it may be nothing, but if you're surprised as to why people are skeptical about stuff like this, look to Microsoft's consistent behavior that is still ongoing. The endless lies, deceptions, manipulations. They only have themselves to blame for the skepticism

I say this was actually a perfect way to pass on halo 5 delay. Nicely sugar coated. There biggest franchise missing the holiday season.

trying to figure out the boat + controlled leaks


whatever. info is info.

Thanks for posting this man, I tried doing a search and couldn't find it, is this what some were saying that ntkrnl was trying to out Cboat?

I personally don't see it but stranger things have happened and shame about it being canceled and instead we get another Gears of War game.

Halo 5 beta is going to be fun... should run throughout December, 6-8 maps, 2 arena maps, 2 forge maps.

BTW, the maps are going to be huge.

How does the Halo journey continue with a port of Halo 2?

Nope - we hate MS and are paranoid on top of it...

The only thing is you said United Allied Emirates instead of United Arab Emirates. Easy enough to do if you don't know what UAE stands for (and that's how it's often written) and I sort of just wrote it off, but now it's apparently a copy pasta job, I'm not so sure. ;)
