Pokémon X and Y Sold Before Street Date in Canada and Italy

"A number of reports are coming in online suggesting that Pokemon X & Y have been released early in both Italy and Canada. The game is supposed to be released on October 12th worldwide, but it seems a small number of stores have already received the game and have broken the street date. I’m not entirely sure which stores are breaking the street date, but it’s worth hunting around."

Many are speculating this will ruin any future plans of doing worldwide releases of Pokémon games in the future.
