"A lesson in pulling the trigger on a news story" - wow, don't care for this article Patrick. Not only is this not even a great example (it was a direct quote from an Xbox exec), but this article reeks of that "lets fix games journalism" thing going on at Polygon. It's elitist and unnecessary. I think GB should continue abstaining from reporting on that stuff like you always have, and don't go after everyone else for doing it.
Games journalism criticizing other games journalism is a big part of the problem with games journalism!
