[LINKED] Newsweek: That GameFAQs Rumo(u)r is fake, guys!

With E3 2018 weeks away, rumors have begun to circulate about supposed plans, reveals and everything in between. A recent post on GameFaqs claims to have correctly predicted the official announcement of the Nintendo Switch Online Service, leading fans to take everything posted in the thread to be true.

User Lazzyman posted the thread on May 1, with the subject line “Check back this topic on May 7th, it’s gonna proven right.” There’s a ton of information in the thread, a mix of “too good to be true” and “plausible enough to be considered legit.” However, Nintendo fans shouldn’t take these rumors as fact: it gets some things right and others wrong.

BehindTGames: NST Switch Preorder receipt from GAME Spain, Xbox One also coming

Well, well, well, look at what we have here. A preorder that’s not even up on GAME Spain’s website and yet, this guy on YouTube was able to obtain it and even show proof of the receipt on video and via a tweet. Yes, this is likely a placeholder ahead of the proported announcement today or next few weeks but there’s no doubt that today’s big announcements day guarantees this to be likely, considering the whole GB Eye leak.

Stay tuned when we find out if today will be the day we get the multiplatform Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy announcement for: Steam (PC), Nintendo Switch and Xbox One with preorders probably going up soon if this ends up happening.
