...if game sites are going to report on every little rumor- no matter how solid or no matter how clearly full of shit- then they must stop bitching about GDC and E3 not having any surprises.
I don't think it's a game site's job to hold back leaked news, even tho- in the above case- it could very well be bullshit. They need to attract readers, readers want up to the second news, and as long as the news is not obtained illegally, then what the hell- it's a free country.
But to use an overused net cliche: this is why we can't have nice things. Or more specifically, this is why the days of E3 and GDC being full of jaw dropping surprises are pretty much over.
And that sucks.
I used to love that about those shows. :(
