i dont care if people got the game early at all. In fact i was glad that the game got leaked. I am just curious about how this could happen. i mean are there legal consequences for breaking the street date


Yes. Kosthedin (the guys from instagram) and everyone else who have purchased the games from the same store had to return ALL of it back and the people to not return them would be fined $2000. Meh..wouldn't fault Gamefreak for doing that though.



Actually I'm pretty sure the people that bought the games can't and won't be fined. The fault doesn't really lie with the consumer, but instead with the retailer (from what I understand). Also I heard that the fine is actually for the store(s) that broke street dates. They'll be fined $2000 per game that isn't returned.

Have you ever worked in retail? It's a bottomless pit of misery and despair. It sells early beachside some poor guy just wants to end his shift and doesn't pay attention to what he's doing
