How the rumors crumble…

So I might have posted a rumor that turned out to not be so correct during the start of the week. It seems that the rumor was a complete fabrication and for this I’m sorry. I have been getting emails (some to my personal account, you angry people sure know how to use Google) as to why I posted this rumor and long letters as to why I shouldn’t post every rumor that comes along.

First of all, I would like to just say that we get a ton of rumors. Anywhere from Shenmue 3 coming to Wii U (obviously fake) to this. Some of the rumors we don’t pick up usually end up on other sites a month or so later, most of those turn out to be true. When this one came along I decided to take a risk and took the wrong type of risk, for that I’m sorry to our staff and readers. So why did I post it? It seemed true. Though, I ignored some rules I usually stick by: “Don’t post unless there is evidence that it is correct or you personally know the person.”

From now on I’ll treat rumors like a newborn baby, with informative respect and if I don’t like the way it looks; i’ll ignore it.

    don’t sweat it george, this rumour is about 100x more likely to be correct then something like shemue 3 on the wii u.

    And at least now we all know the rumour has been proven to be false and there won’t be confusion over it.

    What’s sad and pathetic is that someone would actually sit around and make up these things. Don’t you have better ways to spend your time? Go see a therapist, perhaps.

    Yeah it’s allright dude.

    You heard it here first, if George doesn’t like the way a newborn baby looks, he ignores it. 😀

    Just another reason George and SEGAbits are awesome. No worries George, rumors are always risky. Post it and its wrong, people get upset. Post it and its right, youre a winner. Ignore it, another site posts it, and its right, youre kicking yourself. Personally Im glad you shared it, even if just as a rumor.

  6. I’m all for discussion on rumors, and the topic at hand, but ANY comments insulting George or any other person will be removed. Those are just personal attacks.

    Its crazy you had to apologize for something you did on your own site! You were just the middle guy sharing info. Its not like you said it was true.. Just shows how crazy and out touch the hardcore sonic fans are with the rest of world. They need to stop overeating on every bit of new sonic detail and get their priorities straight lol.

    It’s ok George. You always said it was rumors and rumors aren’t always true.

    Don’t sweat it buddy keep it up 😉

    Is okay, George. You can have my Golden Axe in this Virtua Quest.

  12. teirusu says:

    shenmue 3 on wii u then what sonic xtreme beta released on dreamcast

  13. Blue Wisp says:

    No need to apologize George, you did say it was a Rumor on the News Title.

    Still, for the future, always ask for proof 😉
