Triple Point Respond To Bribery Allegations For Halo 4
An image that recently begun circulating the internet has officially been labeled as a hoax in an official post on the Triple Point PR group’s blog. The letter suggested that Triple Point were bribing players to give Halo 4 a good review score in exchange for an early copy of the game, as well as a free Limited Edition Xbox 360 Console. You can view the image, as well as the post here.
It’s said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. We don’t feel especially flattered, in this instance, though – you may have seen a hoax circulating recently, suggesting TriplePoint is a part of the Halo 4 review campaign, and making unprofessional demands of journalists.
We don’t represent Halo, nor do we represent Microsoft, and nobody named “Terry Graves” has ever worked at TriplePoint, either now or at any time in the past. The image of the letter, allegedly sent from our offices, demanding that reporters award Halo 4 a certain score, is a fabrication. It’s not even a very good one – reporters can only reach us between 9-5? C’mon.
Kudos and thanks to all of our friends in the industry who immediately spotted this hoax for what it was, and for having our backs. We’re looking forward to playing Halo 4 along with everyone else.
Although it was quite obvious to many that this was a fake, it’s nice to see official confirmation.
