Slashdot jumps the gun over Duke Nukem Forever, hilarity ensues

After the first announcement on 1997-04-27 and over eleven years of fresh start after fresh start, Duke Nukem Forever finally comes to your system. At least if your system is an Xbox 360. Joe Siegler, the webmaster of 3D Realms, confirms this on their site:

“As has been reported around the net today, we can confirm that the game has indeed passed final certification with Microsoft on Friday the 15th of August (on our first try, no less). That means the game is done — it is now in the hands of Microsoft.”

Update: 08/19 10:47 GMT by T : Several readers have written with a correction: this announcement is actually about Duke Nukem 3D, rather than Duke Nukem Forever. (link)

Funny comment:

“After I read the summary I called my boss at home and quit. I then drained our bank account and blew it all on hookers and booze. Now you tell me it was false alarm????? When my wife wakes up what she’ll do will make the Apocalypse look like a trip to Disneyland. Note to editors, please fact check articles before posting summaries.”

    They also got my name wrong. It’s Joe, not “Jon”. 🙂
