In the days leading up to the Pokémon X and Y release, Nintendo sent retailers in Brazil a reminder of the games’ release date, though “warning” may have been a better word. In it, Nintendo advised that any who broke the worldwide October 12 release date would not be receiving future product shipments until after the initial release. For any transgressors, that means no launch-day sales, which, hectic as launch days are at game retailers, are great for profits. I did not hear of any large early releases of the games in Brazil like there were in Italy and Canada, so the ultimatum must have worked pretty well.

Our Verdict

Stefan Terry
One of my earliest memories with games was just after Pokémon had come out in the states for the first time. I remember, after having watched the show for a couple weeks, stumbling across a friend with an original Gameboy playing Pokémon Red version using a Weedle. When he told me he was playing Pokémon, I told him I didn't know there was a Pokémon that had a pumpkin for a head. Boy games have come a long way. Speaking of games, I also contribute to making them somewhat professionally, and ocassionaly write about them. You should see some of that games writing stuff, I hear it's real popular with the kids these days.
