    In a couple of places they say "hitting the stores in November"--maybe that's parsing the words too closely, but Ares seems to try to control the release date pretty firmly, so I read this as when...

    So, if WGS was in mid-June and WGF in end-August, then maybe SGN will come in early-November?

    One of the fun things about these battles is that they are so big that nobody really has the...
