uh... september 19th was probably kirby's shipping date, not release date. it usually takes a day or two after the "release date" before you see a game on the shelves, unless it's a HUGE release like GoW, Halo, or Smash Bros, for example.

bad article.

Yes, thank you, I know what the release date is. The fact of the matter is, when it comes to most non-high profile video games, the RELEASE DATE is synonymous (that means the same!) with the SHIPPING DATE.

Perhaps it's only where I come from, but I've encountered this many times -- most memorably with Super Mario Galaxy, Super Mario Galaxy 2, and Metroid Prime 3. I've visited many different retailers, all of which gave me the same response: for most (lower-profile) games, games arrive in-store a day or two after its official release date.

edit: I see from where the confusion stemmed: I was a bit vague, and worded my original response pretty terribly. Fact of the matter is, do you guys really think there's some global marketing conspiracy to prevent KIRBY MASS ATTACK (a DS game) from stealing sales from GoW3? Really?

Umm...I don't think this was a "serious" article....

TheSanchezDavid1738d ago

To answer your question, yes, I do believe there's a global marketing conspiracy to prevent Kirby Mass Attack from stealing sales from Gears 3.

Prophet-Gamer1738d ago

haha, of course man! We all know the Gears crowd totally plays Kirby games.

TheSanchezDavid1738d ago

@Prophet-Gamer: When I interviewed people at the Gears 3 midnight launch, one guy actually did tell me he liked Kirby. No joke.

Prophet-Gamer1738d ago

haha, wouldn't surprise me man. I love Gears, but I also enjoy Kirby so that's two. I would not, however, pick Kirby over Gears.

Look it up before you spew garbage. 19th was the release date, listed on numerous sites. And you think the article is real investigative journalism? You smacktard.

TheSanchezDavid1738d ago

I want more Kirby games. I also want Kirby ice cream bars.

Sobari1738d ago

Everything's better with Kirby.

Azule611738d ago

Lol! This article was a fun and enjoyable read. Dammit! Now I want a Kirby ice cream bar.

Was there a conspiracy against Dragon Quest Monsters, too? I wonder ... ;)
