    Would help if it was in English as not everyone can read whatever language that is in.

    It's just a placeholder date.

    There is close to no way this is the official release date. Given the latest string of news, we will be lucky if we play the game this year. Either a demo or a "this feature will be made available in future upgrade" route appears like their only escape road...

    Decals as pre-order bonuses bode well for the livery editor though

    hang on a mo, that date matches when uk gets games (Fridays) so maybe its NOT A PLACEHOLDER DATE we just need Sony to confirm if this is true or not

    ...Stinks of "PLACEHOLDER" to me. Unless there's an official confirmation, I'd advise exercising caution.

    March 31st is a common ending time for fiscal quarters, and sometimes even the fiscal year in some countries where allowed.

    Exactly, March 31st is a placeholder for the end of the fiscal year in Japan.

    I wouldn't put much stock into it.

    I'm not sure I get your point. Sure Sony's new fiscal year starts on April 1st, but are you suggesting they could release an unfinished product on a pure accounting angle?

    It does happen, when products absolutely must ship in a certain fiscal quarter or year no matter what to balance the books for that year/quarter. But in this case I think it's just being used as a placeholder because someone has told them it would be out this fiscal year. I doubt it actually will be, but who knows. If Sony deem they need the cash injection this year, they may force it out.

    I'm suggesting a retailer made up a date and they could justify that specific one slightly more than the 364 other days in 2017 that would also be made up.

    It is truly staggering that people still don't get that there is NO OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE until it is officially announced.

    But nobody said this is an official release date, this is either a possible release date or more likely a placeholder

    That's if you ignore the idea of people implementing their own decals.

    But atleast there is some sort of an editor, we haven't seen any of the demos use it so I was fearing another course maker situation.

    I wouldn't really put it past PD to offer pre-order items for use with something not yet in the game.

    That site might just be putting a March release date so more people pre-order it.

    End of 2017 by PD standards.
