The first one can be excused as a possible mistranslation of something along the lines of "Gensokyo, the world of youkai visited in the game" (an accurate if simplified description), but the second one is just plain wrong.

* The official product description for ''VideoGame/SuperMarioMaker'' for Nintendo 3DS opens with the following sentence: "Want your cannons to shoot coins?" You can't make cannons fire anything other than cannonballs, but you ''can'' modify Bill Blasters to fire anything other than Bullet Bills.

* A brochure of the video game trade fair ''Gamescom'' describing ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory'' claims that the BigBad of the game is 'King Fawful Bowser', implying that 'Fawful' is Bowsers surname. In reality, Fawful is an independent character and Bowser isn't the villain of this game, he was PromotedToPlayable instead and actually opposes Fawful.

* Dennis Romero made a wrote an infamous article for LA Weekly about the SAG-AFTRA Strike by not only suggesting that the goal of the strike was a salary increase ,but suggested they were greedy by saying voice actors make $800 per day when in reality they only make that amount per session (which is rather infrequent) and they spend way more than on classes and daily necessities.

** This [[http://www.vinereport.com/article/pokemon.omega.ruby.and.alpha.sapphire.news.hoopa.unbound.is.coming.this.july.character.to.reach.north.america.in.the.fall/1013.htm trainwreck of a Vine Report article]] calls the Nintendo 3DS the "Pokémon 3DS", neglects to capitalize the names of Pokémon types, refers to Hoopa as a "psychic or mythical" Pokémon, and claims that its alternate form "will feature a Focus Sash with four powerful and well-loved attacks". Technically it's both Psychic and mythical, but it isn't a pure Psychic-type, as it is also half-Ghost. Also, the Hoopa movie (which isn't even referred to as a movie, the article just says it "premieres this summer") is referred to by its translated Japanese title, ''Archdjinni of the Rings'', rather than its English title, ''Hoopa and the Clash of Ages''. Also, the Focus Sash is a held item that's completely separate from Hoopa's set of attacks. Hoopa Unbound is also called an evolution of Hoopa, rather than a form change. Any ''Pokémon'' fan worth their salt knows that Legendaries never evolve. Oh, and it says that the "first version" of the Generation VI games was released in November 2014, when the first Generation VI game pair, ''X'' and ''Y'', were released in October 2013. ''Omega Ruby'' and ''Alpha Sapphire'', which are separate from X and Y, came after them in 2014.

* The article [[https://goodmenproject.com/featured-content/video-games-not-much-fun-bbab/ "Video Games—Not so Much Fun After All"]] implies that ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'', the "most popular game of all time", is a rape simulator, and that "it's not the only one". Of course, you cannot actually rape anyone in ''Grand Theft Auto''.
