The Super Bowl of Gaming is just around the corner, with E3 2017 set to keep gamers glued to their phones and laptops for a week of the biggest and most buzzed-about reveals and announcements.
Much of E3's excitement stems from the build-up, where fans make their predictions, the rumour mill works overtime, and the array of pre-release information becomes so hopelessly convoluted that it's hard to know who to trust.
It'll all be over soon enough, but until then, it's time to consider those last-minute rumours, leaks and apparent "insider information" about the latest new IPs, sequels, shock announcements and general craziness gamers should apparently expect from the show.
In a week's time, gamers can laugh over those implausible rumours that were never going to happen, and maybe even marvel at a few improbable leaks that somehow turned out to be true after all. It's all part of the fun...
