    Diamond & Pearl were released in April as well. Since Black & White are totally new, they need to translate everything and correct glitches found in the original.

    So, I'm guessing we won't see BW here until April 22 of 2011

    So between January and April, we might get a sneak peak

    But, I agree its too late like Riz said

    Actually, you would want March 20 because that's a Sunday. But remember that Diamond & Pearl actually came out on April 22, so if this date turns out to be true, you wouldn't have to wait as much.

    I'm actually in agreement to this date. It's just only about a month more of a wait than usual, nothing much.

    Since these are new games entirely, not the rendition of one (Platinum) or a remake (HG/SS), this could explain why these games might be released later than "normal."

    Diamond and Pearl (the original games of the previous gen) were released on April 22.

    Of course, Gamestop never really was consistent with "release dates." Stores such as this usually "guestimate" on when these games might be shipped to them.

    Remember, this is still unconfirmed. I am pointing 50-50 on this being the release date. Certainly the games shouldn't be released no earlier than March and no later than April.

    Most of the time, the statements on release papers like that in stores such as Gamestop are just guidelines on when it's released, usually on their guess and not necessarily the actual date.

    I'm not saying this isn't the date, I'm not actually aware of the date yet, but this has happened countless times before with Gamestop. Retailers are not your best bet for release info. They often know less than us

    Even if this release date turns out to be false, I doubt that it will be released before or after April. If it's not April 17, then I believe that it will be released on April 10 or April 24.

    I agree with Ampharos King. These games are brand new, not remakes or tweaked versions of previous games. So, with that in play, it will take time to complete all the translations and whatnot. On top of that, April isn't the latest I've seen for a game release. And, as previously stated, Diamond and Pearl came out late-ish April, so it's not unheard of. But, likewise, the actual date is a gamble. It's a 50/50 chance of being right or wrong, as GameStop does tend to guess with release dates (I've been baffled a few times by that, getting revved up for a certain game's date, only to learn late that it will be a little more of a wait). So, as stated before, it shouldn't be released earlier than March, but no later than April. So, I say take the date lightly, more like a guideline or general idea over a fact.

    I agree with many others. Either way, March/April does seem the most accurate guess. I think GameStop is going off of DP's release date for this one. I mean the release for DP in Japan is around the same time of year BW was released there too, so an American date shouldn't be that far off.

    One would think the official release date would first be released by Nintendo, not from Gamespot. I'm fairly sure this is a placeholder date.

    April's a little late compared to Platinum and HGSS's American release dates, but it's understandable given that there's a lot more to translate this time around.

    April 17? Portal 2 comes out on the 18th.

    I'm in for some serious gaming.
