Just thought it was kinda nifty, but the dotcom was mentioned in Gamespots latest news on JoD.

http://www.gamespot.com/news/show_blog_ent...lyadded;title;1

NiGHTS hits snooze bar? Source: NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams has slipped into next year, according to a news post on the laser-focused fan site NiGHTS Into Dreams.


What we heard: Earlier this week, NiGHTS Into Dreams updated with news that Sega's upcoming Wii game NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams has slipped from its fall 2007 release date and is now expected to arrive sometime next year. The information apparently came out of the Leipzig Games Convention, as a Sega rep told a NiGHTS Into Dreams reader of the delay, and that reader quickly passed word along to the fan site as part of a series of articles about the game's showing there.

While NiGHTS Into Dreams is more exhaustive and detail-oriented than a typical fan site (it counts the hair color and names of certain characters among its scoops), reader tips on a fan site are ordinarily something to take with a heaping helping of salt. However, there are a few reasons to think a delay is in the works. For one, the game apparently isn't far enough in development that Sega feels comfortable letting the press get hands-on time with it. The game wasn't actually playable by members of the press at the E3 Media and Business Summit last month, or even last week in Leipzig, where some levels of the game were quite noticeably far from finished.

Then there are the strategic reasons for letting NiGHTS snooze into next year. With the rest of 2007 jam-packed with huge releases on all platforms, NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams would have a hard time attracting an audience any larger than its current dedicated niche fan base. Sega probably doesn't need the game to pad its release schedule, either. The publisher is already lining up Wii releases like Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, The Golden Compass, Bleach: Shattered Blade, and Ghost Squad; it would make little sense to rush a potentially franchise-reviving title like Journey of Dreams into the mix.

The official story: As of press time, Sega had not returned GameSpot's request for comment.

Bogus or not bogus?: Leaning not bogus. Sega might not have confirmed the delay just yet, but the relatively low profile the game has been keeping, combined with the not-quite-ready-for-prime-time state of it at recent trade shows, suggest that the game's definitely going to miss its fall ship window, and might not hit during the holidays, either.


(I searched "Gamespot" on the forum and got no results, so I hope I'm not repeating anything...)

Finally, the site gets its due as the best Gorramn NiGHTS fansite on the 'Net! :)

It's good of GameSpot to acknowledge that you broke the story and its even better that they praised the site how they did. Of course, you guys did better than great simply for breaking an exclusive story that eluded even IGN and Gamespot and other well-established gaming news sites.

Kudos all around.

This is so cool. The sites getting recognition by a huge website. Didn't this happen on the same site though or was it another gaming site?

Lets pat ourselves on the back for being a reliable fansite. (pats back)

Hopefully we won't have to deal with idiots popping in to screw around with us. But then again, it might be fun, because we can finally get a little revenge against our 'enemies' with a little 1 on 100 fight. :)

Oh, and I'm glad that the comments at the bottom aren't filled with stupid remarks.

*Chuckle* Wow, you forget me! XD Well, granted, we seem to not often post in the same topics and if we do, its usually pages apart.. I'll cry myself to sleep tonight. Heh heh. Just remember: Purgatory is the crazy mod who talks too much.

As for people popping in to mess with us, we wouldn't want any verbal battles going on, but I admit, I'd probably be guilty of dropping them a nasty personal message or two before making sure the admins jump on their case. XD

Even though its obvious that this fan site was mentioned it didn't appear they gave direct links to the site or even mention its name.
Either way I feel there will be a more influx of people closer to Christmas and close to the release date.

I was looking though Gamespot.com, and there was an article about NiGHTS being delayed (under rumor control, but they are leaning towards "not bogus") that they are basing off of what nightsintodreams.com reported on. The site got recognition! Perhaps this will bring in interested people?

I don't think we would be the site we are now if it wasn't for those few people who took a heap load of risks to provide us with information from the source. In this particular case, Niraven is the one responsible for getting that information to us and quickly, too. If anything, we should be thanking them for this site getting recognition lately. So cheers to them. ;)

Aw, psh, don't worry about it. You aren't gonna get your warning level raised by me for something so trivial. Especially because it can be easily fixed. Just keep an eye out next time. Either way, its fine. :)

Just because this palce is hosted by Sonic cult, dosn't mean the admins will act like them. No diss to Sonic Cult, but they are pretty strict.

Also, it funny that we got the infromation of delay all because someone decided to make a phone call. Thats all it takes people. Call someone!

Of course, that's not necessarily a bad thing, because keeping Sonic n00bs in line from messing up and ticking off the Sonic oldbies is always a good idea :3.
