When Nintendo told me that they don't comment on rumors and speculation, I had a feeling they would be delayed...

I think it is a good move by Nintendo. They can create extra hype and polish those games a little more and release them around Thanksgiving. They most likely will sell more copies that way.

It isn't much of a delay. I doubt it's even for polishing or changing voice acting. They probably just wanted to space their big releases out so that they aren't cannibalizing sales.

I do agree they should push it to the Thanksgiving/Christmas timeslot just in case Zelda gets delayed to 2011. As for Sin & Punishment, it's only two days, it doesn't make much of a difference, they just need to give us all the hype at E3.

Off topic: Doesn't anyone think they should add Classic Controller (Pro) and GameCube Controller support to Other M. The NES style of playing the game doesn't seem to be too comfortable.

Their deleting their best games.

A two week delay for Sin & Punishment 2 and a two month delay for Other M by no means equals deletion. In fact, it will probably help Nintendo by preventing their titles from competing with each other. Cool as the original three games in two months release schedule was, I always thought it was a little crazy, and I couldn't see how Nintendo stood to profit.

The confirmed release date for Other M also puts an end to the speculation that it was being pushed back to replace Zelda Wii for the holidays. Aug 31 is way too early for that.

that Photo Dojo will be free for it's first month! Definitely picking that thing up hehe.

Hmm, I am thinking it might be due to pressure from Koei because Nintendo is publishing Samurai Warriors 3 soon and Koei will want it to have enough room. I dunno though.

At least it's not too long of a delay and August is when the last Metroids released.

But do the delays apply to Europe at all? We didn't have a date for Metroid and we're suppsoed to be getting S&P too earlier.
