The Conduit Gets a Website (and a T-shirt)

Surely not. CVG, a decent news site, has reported portions of an interview were found on The Conduit's "official website". Trouble is 1) their quote happens to match one posted on a free user fansite, claimed by said fansite to be an email interview, and 2) The Conduit doesn't have a functional official website yet and the publisher's site has no such interview anywhere I could find. Destructoid picked up the story as well, without checking facts or providing a meaningful source link to the interview cited. This is why we link to our sources. Bad CVG.

Even more troubling is neither Destructoid nor CVG seems to have any recollection of the unconventional Wii headset IGN has apparently seen. It has been described as having features that would give parents some control over who their kids talk to, but IGN theorizes that 3rd parties will release conventional headsets shortly after the official one releases and the Wii is outfitted with the appropriate firmware.

But the real point is that while googling for this supposed official Conduit website I turned up a nice "under construction" placeholder site. I gather it's legit because the domain was created in January 08, but the world didn't know about the Conduit until High Voltage went public with it on April 17th. The site also uses the same email address as the publisher, and features the same contest: that is, a contest for "alien resistant cotton armor", or a Conduit T-shirt. No word on what the shirt looks like.
