Earlier today, we reported about a slew of rumors from a twitterer named 'Game Fork' who claimed to be an industry journalist. Among other things, he said that a Metal Gear Solid 4 port was coming to Xbox and that the Xbox Fluid motion capturing device would be unveiled at E3 this year.

Unfortunately, sources from Microsoft itself have thrown serious doubt upon these rumors. Aaron Greenberg told Eurogamer that all of the Game Fork information was "completely uninformed." He went on to say that the rumors "did not even come close to matching our news for E3."

Now, this doesn't necessarily mean the rumors are false. If Greenberg had come out and said that Game Fork was just some random twitterer making guesses, I'd be more inclined to believe him. But he stated that the rumors weren't even close to the truth. If nothing else is, that sounds patently untrue.

There is a mountain of information that Microsoft is coming out with a motion sensor for the 360. As well, Forza Motorsport 3 is all-but-confirmed as set for reveal at E3. Assassin's Creed 2 and BioShock 2 are more products that Game Fork listed that are virtually guaranteed to see light at E3.

It's entirely possible (even likely) that Game Fork is just some kid lying to everyone, but there's no way his list is totally out of line with the real release list. Microsoft's harsh and rash response makes me think that the Game Fork rumors might be real. This could just be a corporate knee-jerk reaction to stop a leak.
