IGN.com posts fake press release as news

A prankster Neo Gaffer, RanoL, put up a press release on the Neo Gaf forums announcing that Konami was forming a new internal division, titled “Kojima X Productions”, that was going to be working on a “Triology” of Metal Gear titles for the Xbox 360.

If you check the official Kojima website or the Konami website, you will find no record of this "official press release", so you come to the conclusion that the press release is fake.

Most video game sites did their research and realized it was a fake story but IGN didn’t seem to notice. They actually posted a story about the press release as seened by the above picture. After they noticed their mistake, they quickly took it down but left a page up about it. Check out the real page here.
