Leaked magazine report: Apple to debut ‘iGame’ portable-gaming device in May?

“A friend just passed me a photocopy of what is supposedly an article from an upcoming issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly about Apple’s soon to be released gaming device called, what else, iGame,” “AH” reports for Station A. “I have the actual magazine the article appears in clutched in my grubby little hands. It indeed caomes in the April 06 issue. It is NOT described as a rumor, and in fact is supposedly set to be introduced at this May’s Electronic Entertainment Expo in LA.”

“AH” provides a link to a scan of the PDF of the actual article and emphasizes “the article itself is NOT A FAKE. If the information EGM is relaying to it’s readers is incorrect is another matter. But this article will be in the April 06 issue of EGM. So save the “it’s Photoshopped”, “FAKED” nonsense. Don’t believe it will happen? Fine. But the article, and that’s all I am reporting on here, will happen.”

  1. Me? I don’t believe it, but fake or fact, we should know fairly soon: according to the Ziff Davis web site, the April 2006 edition of Electronic Gaming News goes to the newstands on March 14. At least the supposed article doesn’t contain all the “it’s” grammar errors that appear in AH’s report…
