The release of the American version has been prolonged for so long, that it's release is highly anticipated. Once a suggeted release date comes out, the fanatics will come out of hiding and reserve copies in bulk. There are places where you can reserve a copy as of now, but the wait will be immense. This could be the next biggest thing to happen to Sony's Playstation other than the release of the PS3. I'm so ready to get this game. With two added years of waiting fo the release, it had better be hella good and worth my money.
