As many of you have heard, Square Enix punched many of us Westerners in the throat by announcing that a North American release of Final Fantasy XIII may be a reality as late as April 2010. That’s one game I can scratch off the list of must-buys for 2009. Despite the crushing news, the world of video games moves on.
Square Enix released some information on the upcoming blu-ray release of Advent Children – now dubbed Advent Children Complete. A street release date of April 16th was announced along with a few different editions consumers can consider purchasing:
The PS3 is pretty cool I guess, the huge hard-drive is nice and all but I wish it were a little cooler looking. I think I prefer the one for Yakuza 3…
Judging by the comments I have seen on the site, it looks like people’s patience are wearing thin when it comes to waiting for the game. Some are considering importing the trial version of Advent Children Complete with the Final Fantasy XIII demo. If you are interested, you can pre-order the film and demo from Play-Asia for $69.90. The price isn’t bad considering the importing process. It may be a good idea to check eBay in the coming months if you are feeling lucky. I don’t feel like taking any chances so I am ordering mine now. Here is my secret plan to save money: take out the demo, sell the blu-ray disc on eBay.
