and some people in the gaming industry had some crazy sense of humor that their fans actually fell for it, so let’s take a look on some notable April Fools jokes for this year.

Some of their jokes include an iPhone application, a pet that reminds you of the Microsoft Office Assistant and a console port where you can use free motion gameplay to play
Manufacturer of professional gaming hardware Razer also made its share of pranks; they introduced a new peripheral where it enhances the player’s actions-per-minute (APM) especially when playing real time strategy games.
