Nplay? April fools!

Nintendo Revolution Now Called "Nintendo nplay" was what my eyes saw, and my mind jumped. Had Nintendo already chosen a name, so soon after announcing that "Revolution" was a codename? Alas, it was not to be. As soon as the link to the press announcement didn't work, I was a little suspicious. I did a little searching, and I am now 99% sure it was a fake. I had kind of hoped it was; "nplay" just doesn't grab me. You can look check out the original hoax, and the de-mystifier.

Don't believe anything you read on the internet. Here's another example of extreme hoaxery. I received an email shortly after the tsunami stating that almost every animal you see on that page was new and undiscovered until they were washed up by the tsunami. That webpage was last modified in 2003. The tsunami was not in 2003.

Whatever you do, don't create these stupid fakes that get everyone excited for awhile, then they realize what you did hate you until the end of your days. You don't want to be like that, do you?
