E3 Rumors!

It's... pretty normal for rumors and leaks to start springing on the eve of the big conferences - and we're getting some nicely juicy ones, today - ones that sound just reasonable enough to be true.

First up, we've been hearing a lot about Evil Within 2 - an ad popped up on Reddit last night that encourages folks to preorder the game, and notes that Shinji Mikami is returning as director.  That's groovy!

Ummm what else...  Ah!  Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus was listed on for an October 27th launch.

Oh!  And there might be a sequel to Ori and the Blind Forest called Ori and the Will of the Wisp.

Which you might remember was also leaked on June 12, 2016.

What else... well, folks on Twitter have been saying all morning that - first of all, leaked Best Buy ads are calling it "Xbox Scorpio," so that might be the thing's real name.  Second, late last night and early this morning there was a chorus of insiders saying the price is $399 - which any thinking person would agree is the upper edge of a reasonable price for a video game console, even a premium one.

An hour or so ago, Geoff Keighley tweeted out that it will, in fact, be $499.  A petition has appeared to sue Geoff Keighley for leaking.

My God, we're a band of nutcases, aren't we?
