    Wow, an almost 4 month delay into 3rd quarter ’09. I’m sure S-E’s investors are loving that news. But the game will sell sh!t tons anyway. I wonder if S-E will work in some DSi exlxusive features in the mean time?

      Regarding the DSi exclusive features, that would be interesting. It would something similar to how some GBC games had extras in the GBA (Zelda Oracle series).

      I really only care because I plan to get a DSi. i’m sure a ton of people would be mad about it.

    I wonder if this pushes FFXIII to April 2010 or later then? Doesn’t Wada have some rule about FF & DQ sequels in alternating years?

    I think the delay is because of the economy crisis its at its peack now they hope it will tone down a little by summer, game with large sales like this the hit it takes from the economy is more apparent than small games.
