Here’s a simple guide to A-class journalism at IGN:
1. Say that the Virtual Console will be available on day one.
2. Say that Pokemon Black and white will have 3DS-exclusive functionality.
3. Retract both of these statements, *hours* after publishing them in a Nintendo 3DS launch guide.
So yeah, that sucks. The Virtual Console will not be available on day one:
> “It’s important to note that some of these features will not be available out of the box, and will need to be downloaded from a Wi-Fi connection. Nintendo has revealed that a worldwide update, scheduled for late May, will enable some of this functionality, most notably the eShop (including the Virtual Console) and DSi-to-3DS data transfer.”
…and IGN have removed the part about Pokemon Black and White having any enhanced functionality. I know I make mistakes too, but come on, at least I don’t consider myself a journalist.
