No reputable sites has "staked" their reputation on ANY of the next xbox rumors, so that' argument doesn't hold any water.
Um, if you post articles like this
, it goes hand-in-hand with your reputation for rumours. That's like the most obvious part of journalism, especially on highly visited sites. If you post dud rumours people will remember. Any time a rumour is posted you can bet someone will be asking how is this sites credibility for rumours?
Still, the main part of the rebuttal was asking you to provide me EA links for your statement about my judgement on rumours. If you can't do that I have no idea why you're asking me about my judgement in taking notice of a current industry wide rumour vs something that has had no mainstream press attention.edit:
Timed exclusives/DLC I believe in, I already said that. My first mentioning of EA in this topic was to vcfan who is more certain on "no games". That I do not believe at all. Next gen as this gen was will be littered with timed deals, but no 3rd party developer as big as EA is going to go 1 console only.
