So very often, we're led astray by misinterpretations, misquotes and mistranslations. Such is the case with the biggest piece of news from earlier this week, which involved PC notebook-maker Acer jumping into the video game console market.

According to the Videogaming247 blog, Acer has confirmed that story wasn't accurate, due to "misinterpreted quotes."

“That was a major misunderstanding as JT [James T Wong, Acer’s senior VP – Ed] was wrongly interpreted,” said a UK spokesperson for the firm. “Acer is not going to release any game console but the idea is to develop a high-end PC (so not a console) targeted at the serious gamer.”

By all rights, we probably should've read between the lines and assumed that this was the case, but so many people were quick to ponder a fourth competitor in the console market. From a business standpoint, we really don't think it would be a smart move, and in retrospect, it makes much more sense that Acer is planning to produce a high-end PC. Well, at the very least, it'll be geared toward avid gamers, so at least that's something, right?

Either way, given that their computers and laptops are beyond amazing… I can see the idea of a gaming PC come to life!!!

PS. Yes I'm being sarcastic!
