Oh no, not at all, I'm worried about thousands of niche games. The Mirror is a mainstream outlet though, so it was the best example to use to prove the point to its casual audience, haha.

Mods reporting this as a duplicate should note that the other story - posted days ago - is referring to the rumour of an event happening, and not reporting on the event itself.

In fact, that article's information can now be proven to be incorrect, as the updates they referred to are not in the event at all.

This response tells me you maaaaaaaybe didn't read the article. ;)

Sounds probable, but can you give the source of that box art?

This is all part of a conspiracy to give kids spots on their faces.

As the concert/'announcement' only happened last night, several hours before you commented, yes, yes it's still news.

Possibly, but all reports from everyone there is that he specifically said 'remake.'

As a journalist and a retail representative, I can wholeheartedly confirm that game publishers do indeed do that. They'll leak a few tidbits of information themselves - either directly or via journalists - in order to initiate hype. It's kinda necessary if other companies are having pre-E3 leaks and building hype; unfortuantely, it's an important part of E3 PR.

Nintendo are super lenient in regards to embargoes, they're great in that respect.

They tend to be just generally lenient when it comes to this sort of thing. As a GAME employee, they're one of the only companies that regularly allow us to purchase their games early when they come in stock.

This should be bundled in with Advanced Warfare to boost its appeal.

I work in a GAME store and my store's Nintendo PR field agent - who, upon Nintendo UK's request, set up Facebook groups for their region's game store staff to talk about Nintendo games and to let them know what's new first - let us know that his entire division has been laid off due to cuts.

Apparently, they're outsourcing temporary PR agents for the release of Mario Kart 8, but after that they will no longer have field agents.

I debated e...

Precisely my point: it's like they're set up to fail. It's not that their PR division isn't succeeding, it's that Nintendo isn't giving them what they need to do so.

To be honest, I actually think this is part of the problem and not a solution. Nintendo don't seem to understand the changes that have come with the modern market as well as they should.

They completely underrate the importance of PR, branding and online. They can modernise themselves and still keep the unique qualities that make them what they are.

How is some mild game mechanic faults being fixed not polishing the game, exactly?

This is the exact sort of thing that I expected the game had been delayed for and that's fine.

Uh, not quite.

Here in Europe at least, it's fully legal to rip music/films from content that you've already paid for.

The architecture of the 360 and the Xbox One (and indeed the PS3/PS4) is too great in difference for emulation to be efficiently possible without having literally kitted the console with the innards of the predecessor console.

Anyone that still thinks emulation can be made possible for their discs via a software update isn't paying attention.

In the very least, I can assure you that Sony haven't recalled the stock of controllers we have in the GAME store that I work in.

My thoughts are they'll probably allow stores to sell off current stock before sending stock of modified controllers.

I'd argue that if nobody realised any different until now, perhaps this whole resolution fixation everyone seems to be having is a complete waste of time.

Whether true or not, as someone that personally works at a GAME store I can assure you that they wouldn't be receiving marketing materials for a currently unannounced game.

Not allowed to say unfortunately, but you'll know on Tuesday.
