The release date announced at PSX wasn’t quite the whole picture.

But the March 7, 2017 date appears to be the North American release date following the two new trailers that have dropped. They’re both exactly the same with the exception of the date at the end.
Square Enix confirmed the European release as March 10 on Twitter.
The Tuesday/ Friday release dates do suck, but at least you won’t go booking off a Tuesday for no reason next year.
So expect to see Nier: Automata hit shelves in the US on March 7, and in Europe on March 10, 2017.
