    I only trust GameFAQs (they're rarely wrong) and official publishers.

    It's not uncommon for sites to put in filler dates, though I really don't see why they do it in the first place...

    Why are you so mad, really you are acting kind of dum, how old are you, its a game and, duh it not coming out, so calm down it will be ok. ign gets dates from other people so they gave them the wrong date maybe it ment 2009, maybe.

    Yep.. IGN usually puts some random release date when they don't know it

    I think that when they add a new game to their database, they can't left the "release date" field in blank or something like that.. so they made up anything [​IMG]

    IGN get completely made up or out-of-date dates fairly often, but they still have mostly legitimate dates. I still check them for DS releases, they're rarely wrong.
