Recently, we have been hearing tons of reports about companies confusing the Wii and the Wii U. Companies likes Toys R Us have accidentally labeled Mario Kart 8 as a Wii game, and have been met with outrage from the Nintendo community. This misnomer trumps Toys R Us\’ by quite a bit, as the Los Angeles Times have reported on the release of the white Playstation 4. The problem? The LA Times are reporting that the Playstation 4 is being released by Nintendo, not Sony.

Although Nintendo did collaborate temporarily with Sony to create the original Playstation, there have been no Playstation consoles officially released by Nintendo. The LA Times may have a new scoop, but chances are the reporters are simply too confused.

Do you find this news comedic? Perhaps it is rather sad that a major outlet cannot tell its Sony from its Nintendo? Either way, make sure to chime in with your thoughts in the comments below!
