Sony is a dirty Wikipedia troll, edits Halo 3 article, loves online vandalism photo



It's not just Electronic Arts getting in on the Wikipedia editing shenanigans, it seems. One of our top  tipsters, Action Bastard, has informed us of a certain edit on Halo 3's Wikipedia page informing us, in biased glory, that the game will not look any better than its prequel Halo 2. While such childish trolling is hardly news on the Internet, the fact that Sony itself seems to be the purveyor of the immature mudslinging should be cause for a raised eyebrow and condescending snicker.

The IP address for the recent edit is 217.18.23.2, an IP that just so happens to belong to Sony Computer Entertainment Europe in Liverpool, UK. Naughty naughty. Checking out the IP's history on Wikipedia, we see a few other instances where SCEE has shown its maturity and sensibility. Because they are funny, I have contained them after the jump. In the meantime, remember that the Internet has WikiScanner now, Sony, and any company that wants to indulge in this kind of infantile behaviour will be caught and made to look like a bunch of incompetent boobs.

Meet Cortana, Windows 8.1 Phone's personal assistant

Microsoft isn't planning to bring more Halo games to Steam

Even though Microsoft says it has a "renewed focus on Windows and PC gaming" internally, we've been hearing that sentiment for a while and little if anything has come to fruition yet. It'd be unexpected for the company to bri...more

A Halo game is headed to Steam next week, but it's Spartan Assault
