Final Fantasy XIII Dated...I Was Close



March 9, 2010 - official date.
March 17, 2010 - my predicted date in iCal.

I would like to point out that the reveal trailer has some guy talking, which I just fast forwarded to the end; I didn't bother with it. Guy says to you "Oh, and I bet you're wondering the NA and EU release date? Well, as soon as they tell me, I'll let you know." The camera pans away, with walls enclosing Guy in them. These walls form the above image, March 9, 2010.

You dickhole...

Before anymore dates are announced, I'd like to lay out my predicitions for what's been given a release window, seeing as I've been getting pretty damned close with these dates.

When I hear "Spring 2010," or "March 2010," I usually think of a strategic date, alongside other game releases. This is how I come up with my release dates, mainly so I can peg it in my calendar:

Dante's Inferno - February 2 (just checked Wikipedia, it's just one week later, the 9).
God of War III - March 9
Resident Evil 5: Alternative Edition - March 30, 2010
PlayStation 3 Sphere Motion Controller - March 30, 2010
Skate 3 - May 11, 2010

RE5: AE could be a bit tricky, as Capcom has not said whether or not it will be a worldwide release, or if Japan would get it first. I don't see why they wouldn't do a worldwide date, as they've got enough material shown that they could very well be sitting on it, waiting for the Sphere to be ready.
