I'd just like to point out this article, initially, was a copy of a press release. Want proof? Here is a copy from one I received.

Xenoblade Chronicles, the epic action RPG for Wii, will now be available across Europe from 19th August, allowing fans to explore the massive world of this critically acclaimed game two weeks earlier than expected.

Nintendo has also created an exclusive pre-order bundle for Xenoblade Chronicles which includes the game itself plus a red Classic Controller Pro, and is accompanied by a poster tube with three exclusive, A1-sized posters, electronically signed by the founder of Monolith Software, Tetsuya Takahashi.

Word for word, this is what this article said, and now he's changed it.

Generally responding to trolls isn't wise but you're pushing stuff.

That's the press release yes. My post is similar, yes. That's because it's covering the news from the press release. If you look at your post paragraph for paragraph it matches up. I like how you ommited the middle paragraph between the preorder section and the first paragraph?

Comparing yours you've merely done the same and taken a release, worded it to be more unique and posted it. It's covering news. You can 30 minutes late. Deal with it.

Press release for anyone - full un-emmited:

8th July 2011: Xenoblade Chronicles, the epic action RPG for Wii, will now be available across Europe from 19th August, allowing fans to explore the massive world of this critically acclaimed game two weeks earlier than expected.

Nintendo has also created an exclusive pre-order bundle for Xenoblade Chronicles which includes the game itself plus a red Classic Controller Pro, and is accompanied by a poster tube with three exclusive, A1-sized posters, electronically signed by the founder of Monolith Software, Tetsuya Takahashi.

Xenoblade Chronicles takes you to the stunning lands of Bionis and Mechonis where the vast landscapes result in over 100 hours of immersive gameplay. Enjoy the freedom of being able to reach whatever you can see in the distance, exploring and plotting your way around the many quests. Xenoblade Chronicles is a real departure from traditional RPGs due to its real-time combat and the freedom you are given to roam the seamless universe without having to endure random encounters.

The number of pre-order bundles is limited, so fans must be quick if they want to get their hands on the three exclusive posters depicting the landscapes and characters of Xenoblade Chronicles, as well as the red Classic Controller Pro. Xenoblade Chronicles is also available to buy or pre-order as software only.

To pre-order your copy of the game or the Xenoblade Chronicles bundle and to receive your special pre-order items ahead of the new 19th August 2011 release date.

I still rewrote it, rather that submitting it to N4G as the thing from Nintendo, which no doubt you wouldn't have changed had I not mentioned it.

You wanna do lazy journalism, you do it, but it shouldn't be acceptable as a submission.

From what I can tell, DangerousDan just posted a comment. He didn't post a press release and label it as "NEWS."

Use the original source.

Boys the report section is where to handle this kind of stuff.

Using press release pastes as a placeholder is not a valid way to use the N4G system, and should be discouraged wholeheartedly. Writing a sketchy article in its place doesn't improve the situation either.

agreed, hopefully sales in Europe will be strong enough to wake up Nintendo of America from it's drunken stupor.

I finnished it and its behond beauty ! Best jrpg since the times of secret of Mana, Zalda a ling to the past and FFVII

This game makes you feel like you have soooo much to discover...complete freedom...the maps are the biggest I saw in a single player jrpg. Each music and each new area are breathtaking!

Best game I played in 10 years!
