GodisaGeek: "Reports of the street date being broken started to circulate across the Internet around 9:30AM this morning. Many people started to tweet that they had managed to purchase copies today. As time went by it soon became clear that at least some stores were intentionally selling the game a day early.
Around midday I received a text from GAME telling me that my Pokémon pre order could be collected now. So I travelled to my local GAME store to see if I could manage to purchase a copy of the game. After handing in my preorder coupon I was sold the game with no issues and no mention of the broken street date. After the transaction was completed I questioned the stores manager (who asked remain nameless) about the broken street date."
