What do you mean they ignored Emerald? The put in the Episode Delta part in ORAS. They aren't going to make a third version.
Obviously they aren't going to make a third version of ORAS - the person you quoted is hoping that if they remake Diamond & Pearl, they don't ignore all of the improvements Platinum had over the original D/P.

Unlike HeartGold and SoulSilver (which added all of the improvements Crystal brought to the table), Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire all but ignored the tweaks Emerald made to Gen III. Considering Emerald was a vast step up over the original Ruby & Sapphire, it was really disappointing imo. Platinum is even more of an improvement to Gen IV than Emerald was to Gen III, so it would be downright criminal to ignore it again.

You guys think D/P remakes are going to be in gen 7? I think it would make more sense to move to a new system and release them in gen 8. It would follow the release schedule of ORAS as well, which skipped gen 5 and instead released in gen 6 on the 3DS.

Yeah, as somebody who L O V E D Platinum and thought Diamond/Pearl were just okay, I would be very upset of the D/P remakes weren't effectively dual remakes of Platinum.

Splatoon 2 will be the subject of the direct. It'll be this Friday.
It's an educated guess with some info to back it up.
Yes, YES!

There will likely be only one ranked mode at launch, so we need detials on which one it is or if its a new one.

Splatoon makes no sense at all. It should be ARMS getting a direct.
i agree with this tho. But if its Splatoon 2 direct I will gladly take it since it'll probably be my GOTY since its Splatoon on a portable.

The week isn't even up...

I was never one to believe unquestionably that we would hear something this week, but at least give it until closer to the end before throwing in the towel and making your definitive statements...

Y'all are being fickle.
 
Not to be that guy but Nintendo US and Japan have completely purged the Pokémon Direct from February last year from their YouTube, including the Sun & Moon reveal trailer. UK still has it up though

NOA still has the X & Y one up.

We never had an enhanced version of X & Y that could muddle the message. Typically they remove videos when things like that could happen.

This certainly is getting interesting. Slowing it's unfolding, one by one. Something's cooking indeed, and it's about to be revealed soon.
