Criticism[edit]

The criticism section should not be deleted; it has no relieable source just because 505 did not make any official statements regarding any delays or bugs, thus it was naver made widely public, the games being niche-titles anyway. The discussion about the delays and problems were made in forums, so the matter can be called widely known eventhough forums do not count as relieable sources normally. I am aware this is not a perfect solution, but the issue of unclear release-policies is a fact and should not be excluded from the article. Even big retailers such as Amaon did not get relieable infos on releases for most of the time, neither were customer requests answered (as also stated in forums). I believe that this case requires not to take the guideline too strictly, since these problems have been cause of quite a few disappointed customers in the past, and it it has to be seen in context to the comnay´s image of bringing niche titles over to Europe; while it does do that, those niche titles are still often not widely available up to a point that the very existence of the PAL-version is doubtful.

Just as an example for this, Wild ARMs 5 has been delayed for months without notice in PAL territories, and the UK-version is for some reason extremely rare and fetches very high prices, contrary to the French PAL-version, released on the same day, which is relatively easy to obtain.

If the tone sounds to harsh, it may be changed, but leaving these infos away completely would be a loss.--88.69.54.46 (talk) 23:43, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

This criticism section is terribly cited. A user forum is not a reliable source. I'm loathe to remove the entire section, as sourcing might be available (though a Google news, archive, and regular Google search do not provide adequate hits). CitizenNeutral (talk) 16:57, 19 September 2013 (UTC)
