I really don't trust Verge anymore. It seems like recently he's more or less just parroted leaks put out recently and it's supposed to be like "Oh wow even he said it!" But I don't know. Seems like he's just trying to retain cred.
Sabi seems to be the main front on this right now, only I have one major problem. Even if all the info they're receiving is true (No Hayabusa, Crash, Geno, or Doom Slayer), how can the source completely count these out unless they actually know who it is, or at least what company the newcomer is from? And if they do, why not just say it instead of "No, it's not them, better keep guessing! "
I'm certainly not getting my hopes up for any great fortune at the Game Awards, but I'm also not counting anyone out just yet.
