IGN Editor Takes Back Controversial Statement: "PS4 Dev-Kits Was Used For Demos and Hand-Ons"

IGN Editor Scott Lowe has retracted from earlier controversial statement against PS4 and Sony.

So was that whole controversy (a well planned set-up) to attract Playstation community?

The story is too old to be commented.

Sometimes it's better to keep your mouth shut than to open up and make everyone see you're a dumb@$$.

What is with the IGN staff

"Some concerning facts: Sony has yet to show a functioning PS4 or a hands-on Remote Play demo with under three months until launch."

I think the Playstation booth had functional PS4s. Also I love this response "Graham Thacker @ScottLowe you just completely undermined the integrity of your ps4 bf4 article by this tweet"

If staff at IGN, Gamespot, Eurogamer, etc. had to apologise for all their dodgy comments about the PS3 the last 7 years they would not have time for reviews or articles!

Such a mass-press bias last time. Would be great for gamers to get pro-PS4, pro-XB1 and pro-WiiU intent, i.e. pro-gaming, this next gen.

Good journalism can still provide truthful and insightful viewpoints whether good or bad - but it would be nice to read journalists work without wondering what perks they were getting from publishers or MS/Sony/Nintendo.

We can dream...

Scott Lowe needs to worry about what he loves, Xbox and COD.

And refrain from commenting on PS4 and alpha builds of games on it.

Think before you speak. It saves alot of silly arguing.

MysticStrummer1451d ago

Agreed, but silly arguing is the name of the game. Look at N4G.

how much microsoft paid this guys for this whole controversy

iiwii1450d ago

Exactly what I was thinking. And it's been happening more and more. They must be making the rounds with payouts to websites to try and make PS4 look bad.

I was just waiting for this counter article to pop up. Now double the hits for gamepur. XD

Well its official: A good majority of gaming journalism is based on troll tactics.

Not seeing how its ever going to become respectable.
