Every new leak or intentional release concerning S/S has dampened any hype I had. If you're going to charge $20 more, you need earn that extra dough.
Cut content, atrocious visuals, lying to consumers, that last one in particular irks me. I don't think I'll be supporting this game at launch. It's not like I don't already have other games competing for my time.
Cancelling the launch event in Japan shows they know the game's a misfire.
But I am curious, to everyone who is buying the game, what has justified the extra $20 you'll be spending? What are the new features that's convinced you to pay more, or would you have always spent $60 on each Pokemon title had they launched at that price point?
