Do you think releasing Pokemon X&Y so early is a mistake?

Ok guys, do you think Nintendo is making a serious mistake by releasing their best weapon so soon? I mean the 3DS line is only just about 2 years old, and I don't think they have any other series which can create the same amount of hypes as X&Y. After this Christmas, the attraction of 3DS will be diminished greatly and open the come back route for Sony in the handheld market. It's just like in chess, using your best assets early is just inviting troubles.

I think it's a mistake that they're releasing them a month prior to the PS4/XBone's release. I'd get Pokemon X but I'm putting any expendable money I receive to my PS4 preorder.

You've clearly never heard of how Nintendo sorts out Pokemon games.

Diamond/Pearl -> Platinum

HG/SS

I don't see how the hype would die down when we are guaranteed to have a 3rd version to bring back the hype

Not really. I came out around the same time on the DS (11/04 to 4/07 almost 2.5 years in the US at least). Since gen three, pokemon games have come about 2 years after the release of a new handheld. Plus, pokemon isn't bound like mario games which only get one game per console. We'll get X/Y this year sequels/third version in a two or three years, and a whole new gen in 4 years hopefully. Even then pokemon sells handhelds.
