I think that we will see FFXII delayed in the US. Maybe by then a slimline PS3 at $199 will come out. It is really going to take both of those things before I buy. Before going multiplatform I might have jumped sooner for final fantasy but now not so much.
Final* Word on Game Delays:
The game will not be any better or include more content then planned. Any commnets that say so are just PR hogwash to make you feel better for having to wait.
Delays are due to lack of proper resources, skill, or adequate planning by the developer.
Do be thankful that they have enough respect for you to delay the game and maintain its intended level of quality.
