Re: Amazon's US Release Dates

Wow, Amazon, just wow. They're obviously placeholders (probably for pre-orders of the English versions), and the date is just an indication that they know it's not coming out this year. But they could have at least gotten the names right.

Re: Amazon's US Release Dates

Yes, those are obviously placeholders. Also, I doubt the games would be localized in three months.

As I said on another thread, I don't even know who posts these. You'd think if it was the sellers themselves, we wouldn't wind up with three different listings for the same product. And Recon Barricade is just the first example I can think of; there are plenty that are much worse.

Those are all from different sellers, though, none of them Amazon - these HGSS listings are by Amazon itself, which is why it's so weird that the names are wrong. (You can tell the supplier by what's listed after "ships from and sold by", I believe, though I could be wrong. God, Amazon needs to improve its interface badly.)

EDIT: And is it just me, or did the price change? Wasn't it listed cheaper than a normal DS game before?

Re: Amazon's US Release Dates

I really can't help but doubt the veracity of this. I've run into way too many Amazon mistakes for comfort lately, one of which hilariously claiming that some LEGO set or another required six AA batteries, said batch of batteries being bigger than the set itself.

Also, name error graaaaaaaaaaaaah. ><

Re: Amazon's US Release Dates

Does the name error suggest they'll listen to whiny fans and change the names?

I like the price, but the date is a placeholder.

Re: Amazon's US Release Dates

Any time a date goes to the end of the year, it is a place holder.

The price is pretty consistent with the recent releases thus far.

I always wondered about that. But they do allow multiple sellers to do the same product, so it still seems odd. It's the only explanation anyone's given me so far, though, so I'll run with it.

Re: Amazon's US Release Dates

Okay, this might be the wrong thread for this, but a GameStop release date sheet shows some different placeholders then what this is speaking of:


Very Ballpark, what you'd expect from GameStop, but mind you that they were only 6/7 days off from the LoZ Spirit Tracks.

Am I the only one that doesn't see any name errors? Or release dates for that matter. :U

Re: Amazon's US Release Dates

It looks like the errors were so two hours ago. Or something. What were the errors, originally? Anyone?

Re: Amazon's US Release Dates

Obviously a placeholder, so I don't get why this thread was even made. When the release date is decided, Amazon will not be the ones to report it first.

Re: Amazon's US Release Dates

Yeah Amazon isn't the place you'd expect to break the news about Pokemon release dates.

And I know this is a very stupid question, but when is spring in America?
