Ok, it was a little confusion. I was talking about the date on the little purple square under the PLAY ! button. There the date is MM/DD/YYYY ( 07/08/2012 )
While on the missions page it clearly says DD/MM/YYYY ( 08/07/2012 ). Mixing two types of date is confusing and I think as amethal, DD/MM/YYYY makes more sense. Or even YYYY/MM/DD.
