The Integrity of GBAtemp Reviews
We provide unbiased reviews
As you may already know, the DS-X team was providing us with "exclusive" news about the DS-X - the next-generation flashcart that is scheduled for release in the next few weeks. They also promised that GBAtemp would be the first to receive a prototype of the DS-X.
However today we learnt that our friends over at MaxConsole supposedly received a unit of the new DS-X. Which sadly means that either MaxConsole or the DS-X team is lying to us.
While this may not be of any importance for you, here is another story that you should read more carefully.
• Two members of the DS-X team have asked us to spin a rating of the NinjaDS which we are currently reviewing in an attempt to promote their product.
• The review of the NinjaDS by MaxConsole, written by jpxdude, was originally a fairly non enthusiastic review of the product which is by no means a problem. But zeus, head of MaxConsole and Divineo - (yes, the online shop) modified the review later on in order to give a more negative image to the NinjaDS.
You may draw your own conclusions from these events.
We're not trying to harm anyone, not the DS-X team, not MaxConsole, we are only reminding you that GBAtemp Reviews are, and will always be unbiased. We do not condone spin doctoring in an effort to promote other products unfairly.
If the score in our upcoming review of the NinjaDS is bad or good it'll be because that's what the product deserves, similar with the DS-X. Our main concern is to bring objective, unbiased, lengthy and useful reviews. The impartiality of GBAtemp has been put into question so many times that we felt it was necessary to show you that you can trust us.
