hehe. Seriously, we just had a big scandal about MS and Machinima paying youtubers to deceive people as to the intentions of their XBO positive videos. People are just naturally skeptical now. It's not like most of this news is hugely surprising other than Halo 2 Anniversary and some of the white SKU shit (and release dates), so it's also not like anyone thinks this news is so extraordinary it can't be true. We just want to know what's actually going on. There is some weird-ass behavior going on in GAF tonight.
I think it's a bit more suspicious that the guy from The Verge came and confirmed some of the leaks in no time. Not that I think it's a controlled leak, but a healthy dose of skepticism never hurt.
