Square-Enix, just announce it within whatever year you actually plan on releasing it. It will save you a lot of negativity, thx

Square enix really licks Sony

Nope, Sony is just giving them checks and they realize that since people will buy it on their console anyways, it's no biggie to delay it. People who own an Xbox will still buy it, like PS4 with TR or XBO with NA.
