Does that mean "Yes, there is no harm in asking", or "Yes, they will be released for Christmas"?
Since I've already said that we don't know yet if it'll be released for Christmas, it could only meant there wasn't any harm in asking, with regard to PHNL and KDFW only. And no, KDFW will surely not be released in 2009, but this was already being said earlier.
PHNL is still in doubt, but at this time I'd say it's more a "no" than a "yes". However, is progressing steadily so, if it's not Christmas, it shouldn't be too much later.
