[Update: Confirmed as a hoax. We should have held off on this one.]
GameHelix, a video game news toolbar available for download is stating they’re received exclusive information directly from Nintendo regarding the Revolution’s launch. They claim it will drop next May, worldwide and will include “one last secret” that “will be shown to the world at E3” this apparently quoted by NOA’s Reggie Fils-Aime. He was also quoted as saying that everyone will then “understand the reason behind the controller’s design and its capabilities.”
Fact or Fiction? We’re going with fiction on this one for the following reasons.
- GameHelix is in need of marketing to encourage gamers to download it’s toolbar. This should do it. Last line in the release: “If you don’t have the GAMEHELIX toolbar chances are [you] have no clue about this information.”
- Sounds doubtful that they would be the only ones to get an “exclusive interview.”
Only Nintendo can stop the speculation, that while fun, is getting a bit old. But hey, what would Infendo be without a little speculation and who knows, maybe this could be legit? Until confirmed from a more reliable source though, take it with a ginormous grain of salt.
