Wrong Source[edit]

The article says "on the 24th of february Atlus confirmed that it wont come out in the west." but a google translate shows it is just a confirmation of a release date, so is google translate wrong, is the wron source giving or is the statement BS? 109.153.135.171 (talk) 21:38, 24 February 2011 (UTC)

American release date[edit]

I just added more specific release date info for the game's American release, and before you cry foul and revert, let me explain why you shouldn't and why this is likely the real deal. As the source states (ref note 3), before Atlus officially announced Catherine's localization, GameStop made the game available for a very short time and showed a release date of July 26; after the announcement, Amazon followed suit. Now, had this happened in the reverse order, I would agree with what most of you are thinking: they pulled this date out of their ass. But the very fact that GameStop had a date before anyone else was supposed to know proves that they had inside information, not mere guesswork. They have been known to use placeholder dates, as has every retailer, but (and I don't have a source for this) those are widely known to most frequently be either the 1st, 15th, or 30th/31st of any given month. As you can see here, as of this writing, the only other game GameStop has listed for the 26th is the video game based on The Smurfs. I can't find any other info about whether this is true or not, but since no gaming press really gives a Smurf about the Smurfs game, I doubt they'd be begging for a confirmation; combine that with UbiSoft's previous statements that the game is scheduled for release just prior to the movie and that date makes sense. Amazon uses placeholder dates, too, but they also don't at times.

My guess is that Atlus didn't confirm a set date during their announcement due to wanting to tease their fans a bit further (because, let's face it, they've been really cheeky about this whole thing from the beginning), but "the cat is out of the bag," as they said. Due to this evidence, I think it's safe to say that the date is legit, barring a schedule change, at least. Thanks. The Mach Turtle (talk) 07:18, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

Slate source[edit]

I fail to see the problem with this article, written in a reliable publication by a reliable author. Nor do I see that my edit misrepresented the piece (it did contain a typo, but that could be fixed easily). Barring any policy-based reasons to exclude the source I plan to restore it.--Cúchullain t/c 21:34, 25 July 2014 (UTC)
