After the numerous U Turns etc... by MS surrounding the X1, I've been reading a lot of different gaming websites for news / personal opinions and stories regarding next gen.
I just wanted to know if anyone had experiences where they thought MS / Sony or Nintendo PR had been trying to change or cover up news stories or negative press by posing as forum posters or anything similar?
This has absolutely nothing to do with any posters on here btw, want to clear that up straight away! :)
I think the last story I remember where people were speculating on foul play was the #Deal With It bad press MS received. Has anyone experienced anything out of the ordinary on any websites they frequent and has this 'viral' style of undercover PR actually become a part of a big company when trying to 'get the message out there'?
It's purely out of interest I ask this btw, I don't know if this has become a 'thing' or not, but given the amount of forums that are active on the web, a lot of companies must rely on them to let certain news stories pass and try and make others disappear.
Anyway, any experiences with anything like this or debunking these practices would be appreciated.
