Final Fantasy XIII review delayed due to PIRACY!

You may have noticed that we don't have a Final Fantasy XIII review up yet. In fact, an astonishing number of North American outlets are missing a review for the biggest RPG of the year. Unfortunately, we're here to tell you that you can't expect one on Destructoid at the present moment because of piracy

Wait, what?

Yes, piracy! Don't ask us for the logic behind it, because we don't quite understand ourselves. However, Square Enix only started sending review copies out yesterday due to "piracy concerns", so barely anybody got a game before launch (save for the obvious big sites). However, apparently piracy doesn't exist in Europe because they've all had copies for weeks. Bizarre logic is bizarre, but there you are. 

So, just letting you all know that our Final Fantasy XIII review is coming, but that your humble author (me) will be enjoying a week or two of sleepless nights as he writes GDC news by day and plays FFXIII by night, all in the name of getting you guys a review. In the meantime, check out Dale North's pros and cons gleaned from the Japanese version of the game. 

Oh, and for those console fanboys out there, we'll be reviewing the PS3 version!
