Previews of the new FFXIII and Versus articles from Dengeki Playstation Magazine have been released.
two major magazines releasing FFXIII/ Versus scans in the same week. =) MOAR NOMCHAN MOAR NOMCHAN MOAR NOMCHAN I WANT MOAR NOMCHAN
they wouldn't be releasing this much unless they are hyping for an 08 release in Japan. I know they want an 08 demo to show off the new battle system but if they release this baby in 08, it would truly be megaton!
if they release this MONSTER of a game in 2008, Japan and EU is Sony's (hands down, no arguments from anyone). I'm not so sure about NA, but with the addition of MSG.... NA would be in the pocket books for Sony also Fanboys of 360 and Wii, this is the truth, I'm not flaming the war. I just don't see any possible way that the Wii or 360 can trump Sony's hand this year (It's a Royal Flush if I might add).......
But since it's two biggest titles, SSBB & Mario Kart, will be released before June, there will be no reason to buy a wii until christmas after those releases. Wii fit will sell well in Japan, but it is the wrong demographic for America and Europe, America especially. So wii fit's release in the West won't be anything special. In this nintendo respite, Sony will release its biggest titles of the year, and with the inevitable price drop to 299 during this year, the ps3's media capabilities and AAA games will no doubt steal the would-be Wii buyers because of all the publicity the ps3 gets this year. I DEFINITELY would not be surprised of the Wii is grossly overstocked by october because of the lack of sales.
at least for a 2008 release in Japan and a Q1-Q2 release in 2009 for the rest of us! 2008 already has enough blockbusters for the PS3... as much as i want both FFXIII's i wouldn't be upset at an early 2009 release for it.
Well early 2009 just sounds the most realistic. I'd love to see it in time for the holiday though!
