For the past few weeks gamers have been having fun with the theory that small time indie developer Blue Box Game Studios is secretly Hideo Kojima covering for the creation of a brand new entry in the Silent Hill universe, a theory that Blue Box itself has been all to willing to encourage.

But as announcements and delays get more and more...trollish, what can we take from how manufacturers have protected their reputation in the very recent past?

For all we know "Abandoned" is just a name given to a performative art piece...in Virtual Legality.
