Too Trusting, Dumb or Just Gullible? - What the Fake Phantom Pain Video Says about Gamers

From GamesReviews:

"The Phantom Pain: Project Deception video is fake. The person who created it has given it all up in the YouTube comments of their latest video. His last two submissions on N4G have been massively successful stories about his video (although there doesn't seem to be a specific link between him and the writers who wrote those articles). He even took to IGN, defending the video and egging people on. This is a person who has deceived under the guise of some sort of social experiment.

"It's difficult to blame someone for making up stuff on the internet. Batzi wasn't the first and he certainly won't be the last. No, the blame must be spread around, across publishers, press and even the gamers themselves." (Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, PS3, Xbox 360)
