Under the gigantic column of “most ridiculous arrests ever” seems to be with the poor man known as Makoto Sekiguchi. On September 1st, he leaked 3 pictures of new pokemon about 18 days before the release of Pokemon Black and White. While anxious fans gladly were hyped regarding the new pictures, GameFreak apparently was not.
Police have since tracked the man down and have him in custody on claims of copyright infringement.
Point now effectively proven! Don’t try to promote/hype games before their release dates, because this apparently hurts the game companies in profoundly disastrous ways. [My marketing friends are STILL in awe over this.]
