    On October 12 Nintendo is set to release Pokemon X and Pokemon Y for the 3DS worldwide. The reason for the worldwide launch is to stop any game spoiling leaks happening, imports from being necessary, and the inevitable slew of images and videos appearing on the web in territories that didn’t have the game yet like has happened in the past.

    A worldwide launch certainly helps, but the game still managed to leak last week. One gamer in particular, known only by his Instagram name of Kosthedin, has been sharing images and videos of Pokemon X regularly. However, that all stopped yesterday as Nintendo took action, which resulted in a prompt removal of all of his Pokemon related content.

    Dunno why they're so up in arms about it. Same game it's been for the last 15 fucking years, after all. Not like getting it early is gonna ruin some crucial plot point or anything.

    They wanted to make it a worldwide release, I would be pissed off too if people got my game 2 weeks in advance and ruined the surprise.

    Lol should have kept his trap shut and enjoyed the game while he could.

    What surprise? That there's some new pokemon? That we have to catch 'em all, that at some point a team of some sorts will show up to do douchey stuff and take over the world (OF COURSE!) and we'll just save the world while we're in the area as some sort of side quest? That there are 8 badges to collect? At this point I could open my own badge dealership. So unless the big reveal is that this game is wildly different to every other paint by numbers pokemon sequel, Nintendo really don't have much to complain about if you ask me.

    Ah, right. "Retrieval Man."

    Looks like Nintendo learned their lesson about "half measures."

    It's not a matter of plot or anything, it's a matter of principle, if you can't understand that, there's a problem.

    I'm aware of the principles, I'm choosing to ignore them for comic effect.

    Don't mess with Nintendo or they'll send their assassins after you.

    Retrieval Man would make a nice name for a reality show.

    They didn't sue anyone? Could have been more extreme about it.

    If they wanted to sue, they'd only be able to sue the store that broke street date, for the guy bought it legally with his money. No one made him sign a waiver that could've stopped him from leaking.

    They could make an argument for damages done with the leaked pictures. I am not saying it would go through, but they could have done it.

    I dunno--this sounds like some random fan-hype rumour that you see in every popular game series.

    Still waiting for Nintendo to get back to me about loogi real 2014

    I could sue you for emotional distress due to your avatar, but it would be laughed out of court. (I don't really have anything against your av, just wanted an example)
