Why does it have to be the same song and dance every single time a new thread is posted...
There have only been two pairs of remakes, and only one them (roughly) coincided with the anniversary of the original games. There is nothing impossible about releasing remakes in 2012, but the anniversary excuse is flimsy at best. You're arbitrarily focusing on the amount of time that has elapsed since the original games were released, when the the previous remakes and the main versions of the current generation are far more relevant.
I assure you that they had things set out in Generation II. They simply didn't have to contend with any remakes.And yeah I don't count Gen I because they didn't have things set yet. Im talking about Platinum and Emerald thank you very much which were released 2 years after R/S and D/P
Exactly. Without FRLG, Emerald would have been released around a year after Ruby and Sapphire. Why Platinum was released when it was is immaterial; they could have released it in 2007 or early 2008, but then the gap between HGSS and Black and White would have been longer.(Emerald due to FR/LG and no clue on Platinum...)
You have got to be joking. Even if we subscribe to the pattern there is no reason to suspect that Gray won't be out by September 2012; it's the remakes that have a shaky precedent.going by the last 2 Gen's we won't get Grey until 2013. because either they'll remake R/S or just not make a game that year (which I doubt will happen... Platinum HG/SS and B/W were released in 08/09/10 and 3's a pattern right?)
