Last night, Square Enix held a Final Fantasy press event, where they officially revealed the December 17 release date, for a price of 9,240 yen after tax(which is close to $100 - Modern Warfare 2 doesn't seem to bad now, does it?). PlayStation Chairmen Kaz Hirai also spoke about the western release date, saying there would be a 'one season lag', that they game would likely hit in 6-8 months. Kind of a let down when Square was saying Spring 2010 at E3 earlier this year.
Don't like the sound of this. This could mean FF XIV being pushed back into 2011.
