Microsoft responds to Intellisponse leaks

"These may or may not be real products."

Microsoft has confirmed it's been doing market research to try out new ideas - but said that doesn't mean they'll ever see the light of day.

"We regularly test all kinds of concepts in market research with our Xbox community," the company told Kotaku.

"These may or may not be real products in development or ever be released to consumers."

This is a response to the barrage of leaks yesterday regarding Forza Motorsport 3, Xbox Live avatars and a bundle of other stuff.

The source of the leaks was said to be documents produced by market research firm Intellisponse. The firm declined to confirm or deny responsibility, simply telling Kotaku, "We do not comment on rumour or speculation." Can't imagine where they got that line from.
