Leaked Memo Shows First Xbox 720 Image/Lists Features

Sick of half-baked Xbox 720 articles? Everyone at VGI is. So to combat this, we thought we'd show the rest of journalism just how silly it is.

Wonder if people will actually read past the headline to see that this is funny.

I did come to the article thing "O here we go again" but I was pleasantly surprised

Not me... if it's an obvious hit grabbing title, I check out the comments section here on n4g before giving a hit to a site. Funny or not, it's the same technique for both.

"With the success of HD DVD"
"No Overheating. Should you become overheated, there's even a fan to cool you down"
"Yellow Ring - tested on 500 people, 97% says it is more soothing than the red ring"

Hilarious

LOL this was golden, just pure gold. Lord knows most 360 gamers get sweaty sitting there eating cheetos and drinking mountain dew, breathing heavily while they sit there for hours on end lmao
Hit the gym fat a$$.

I did consider having a more fitting title (and probably should have) but ended up going with the current one seeing as it kind helps prove the stupidity of attention grabbing headlines.

Or at least that's what I hope it does ...

ZoyosJD1411d ago

I'm glad that you took the time to ensure that the description gave it away as fake, but I could have really went on without it.

While the article was slightly funny, it's just not worth it since you were trying to prove a point using certain tactics, and FURTHER PROVING THAT THEY WORK(even after practically stating everything is fake in the description).

If you really wanted to be honorable and show you really are tired of the hit grabbing, you should have posted a blog here on ng4.

But sir, you have become a hypocrite with this very piece, not because of intent, but execution.

GOOD DAY!

Nice work, way to channel your inner Douglas Adams.

dubal-e1411d ago

Nah it was funny man. Its no worse then the articles that people actually consider news on here sometimes. I laughted and its fun to laugh a little every now and then.

deep_fried_bum_cake1411d ago

I think that is really stupid reasoning as it just seems like you're looking for hits. But even so, it was funny, so you deserve the hits.

XB1_PS41410d ago

This sure did catch a lot of hits!!

I enjoyed the poke "following the success of hd-dvd" :)

Abdou231411d ago

Of all the leakages this is the worst.

thorstein1411d ago

And it isn't even April 1st!

NonApplicable1410d ago

I don't care how satirical the article is. The whole premise is based off of false advertising. This hypocritical website points out flaws in journalism, yet transparently employs the same techniques.

Blaze9291410d ago (Edited 1410d ago )

nothing, about this article was funny to me. Just sounded like someone was sour and did the exact thing he complained other websites of doing: wasted my time.

Everyone who says it's funny, doesn't really say how and just sounds like they are friends or work with the website and posted a comment they dont believe.

Really, I didn't think it was funny at all. Funny idea, maybe, but poorly executed.

dennett3161411d ago

Not obvious enough it seems...have you seen some of the comments on the story when you click on it?

Hayabusa 1171410d ago

@dennett3316: Better to assume some really witty people are being ultra-sarcastic and maintain faith in the human race.

tehpees31411d ago

LOL! Good laugh from that. And yes I'm sure its 1000% real ;)
