    No?

    Then you're probably wrong.

    2nd Half, as they said in the Q1 call too.

    So, from 7th month to 12th month. I myself think it'll be in September.

    I agree, it's most likely second half- which fits with what we already know. Since September is not totally off the table with the "Fall" timeline we've gotten in the past, that leaves fiscal quarters three (July-September) and four (October-December)- second half. Assuming September is a possibility, they couldn't say "fourth quarter."

    There's nothing to agree or disagree with. 2H MEANS Second Half. It's a common business term, like Q3 for third quarter. It's always relative to the calendar year unless stated expcliclty that it's to the fiscal year (some companies' fiscal year isn't congruent with the calendar).

    Odd that they wouldn't just say 3rd Q or 4th Q. They must just not know.

    This is pretty useless information, since this is pretty much already common knowledge.

    This is where things start to become dicey on release. Do they want to rush for a last minute Q3 gain (Sept release) or tent-pole through Q4 (Oct release). I honestly do not see it being much later than those with as much info as we already have out. Though it would likely be released at the tail-end, or very first, of a quarter, so using "half" would be the best scenario, or else people will go crazy. (Side note: it is interesting that has changed from "fall" to "2H 2014")

    It's a quarterly earnings report for investors. Most of it is not new except for subs data, and that is how every quarterly report has gone. It's a financial report. They use other outlets for announcements.

    Idk where you got fall from, the only concrete thing I've seen was something that stated it would be out before December 31st.

    Because you cannot plan technical difficulties or developments. Easier to say 2nd half.

    that's WHY they used the 2H term. It confirms that they believe it will ship in the July-Dec timeframe without committing them to either quarter.

    2H 2014 contains fall. It's a common business term whereas fall really isn't.

    Actually, they said by 12/20 which, technically, is fall in north america (Winter starting on 12/21).

    It's all bullshit talk, we all know they'll release it in December ... I don't even know why they have to lie all the time, they should grow some balls.

    "Fall" was used when Alpha was first announced. I believe it was in Celestalon's twitter feed. people latched onto it for weeks.

    It says fall right on the website under the pre-order button.

    Why are you trying to argue a point that we agree upon?

    AH! Thanks. That's what it was. The pre-order announcement that coincided with Alpha.
