  1. "Pokémon Company International has decided to threaten legal action against people who were sold a game before street date, hoping to make themselves look even worse after lying to the public blew up in their face immediately before release."

      Wait, seriously? That’s incredibly heinous.

      @Noodle Panda You were just talking about sarcasm, and this is satire. "Hoping to make themselves look worse after lying to the public" isn't real.

      Legal action against leakers who are under NDA or whatever is justified. But if they're seriously going after the people who were sold copies of the games early as the rumours say, that's just unfair. In some ways I do think that it's kinda scummy of people to leak everything online just because they were lucky enough to get the game early. Really they're not doing anything legally wrong though.

      @Blue Blood of course I knew that part wasn’t real.

      The part that is real is still scummy if you read it as “they want to sue anybody who bought it before street date, whether they leaked anything or not”.

      Lol Gamefreak

      Well, I mean, it's not like getting it before street date is any better than hunting down anyone who did it (not that I'm defending the latter). It just gives people leeway to ruin not only the surprise for the people who wanna play it, but the secrets the devs wanted to keep until enough people played the game where it was safe to openly talk about them.

      If the game stores put them out, people are free to buy them. Don't blame people for playing games that stores put on shelves because they can't read fucking release dates, lol.

      Also, if the games had actually a big amount of content or anything that would've made people super excited for the games and would incline more people to pick them up, they wouldn't need to hunt down anyone in the first place (need to with huge quotation marks, of course)

      the secrets the devs wanted to keep

      Developers don't like having their shit leaked to the public. Regardless of how you feel about Game Freak, they're not unjustified in doing this.

    9. Thigolf


      Yes they are, go after the stores for all I care, the end user shouldn't be blamed, let alone fucking sued because they did a normal ass purchase.

      Cry me a river, literally millions of people still bought your game, it's getting good reviews, and Gamefreak throws a tantrum because a small percentage looked at it beforehand, boohoo.

      @KuzuThey're pretty unjustified when it's innocent consumers. If the game is sold to you early, you're not breaking any laws or contracts. It's a dickish thing to leak out all the spoilers, but something I hope wouldn't stand up in a court of law. The fault  should be squarely on anyone selling the game before the street date.

      It's okay. Game Freak made their money anyway. The checks they wrote won't bounce.

    12. Kuzu


      If they're not under any contracts, then yes, they are technically innocent and I don't think there's a case there. It really is on the stores for breaking the date.

      Remember that time when Sonic 4 Episode 2 was accidentally released early and in beta form on Steam? It was only SSMB that banned the leaks; SEGA just held up their hands and were like "whoops our bad. But hey you bought it legally so have fun playing it and putting videos on YouTube and stuff".

      I can't believe the nerve of all those people who bought the game legitimately.

    14. Thigolf


      Maybe Gamefreak should use that time and energy to sue, I don't know, people who sent them death threats.

      Kinda seems more appropriate and urgent than suing some dudes who took their games off a shelf and onto a counter to pay for them
