FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4.

DAILY MANIFESTO

Tomorrow's News, Today

You can tell a lot about an industry from its news. Movie news mainly focuses on shooting its stars out of the sky, music news on its stars shooting up, and sports news on its stars shooting other people. Video game journalists, on the other hand, love taking shots in the dark. That's right - to go with our virtual worlds, we provide virtual news.

Take this piece on Gamedaily.com, with the headline "PS3 to Win Next-Gen Battle, says XTN Data."

Apparently, a British firm known as XTN Data surveyed a thousand of its countrymen on which next-gen system they would be purchasing. 32% said they would buy a PS3, to 27% for the Xbox 360. This statistic, Game Daily concludes, "...would seem to indicate that the PS3 will eek out a victory."

What's with this victory talk? It's one thing to predict the next NBA Champions, since there's an NBA Championship - someday you'll be proven right or wrong. But predicting the winner of a contest that hasn't begun and will never distinctly end is gutless and boring.

Gamedaily, if you're going to cook up some fake news, at least make it spicey.
