The article was entirely false and was intended as an April Fools joke, but rapidly became out of hand. It was not intended to be taken seriously but I can see now the joke was made in poor taste.
I'd also like to give a special mention to N4G member kb8mvp81 here. The article found its way onto N4G, where gamers quickly began dismissing it, with kb8mvp81 believing he had found confirmation of this being a hoax in the name of the author, "CON or BEAT on". Well, kb8mvp81, unfortunately Connor Beaton is my real name. But congratulations on making me laugh!"
