Thats nice to hear. Hope the game is good.

Army_of_Darkness2090d ago

This explains why only 2 people are working on versus13.......

Lvl_up_gamer2090d ago

so I guess Versus is Dead?

if so, what a waste of time and resources.

RmanX10002090d ago

Im pretty sure a long time ago they announced that it was the KH team working on VsXIII... And i doubt that the entire team would be told to drop everything and help.

Lvl_up_gamer2090d ago

I hope you're right. I have been eagerly waiting on Versus for what feels like an eternity.

WeskerChildReborned2090d ago

Hopefully they are just being very hush about it.

It would be a real shame if it is cancelled cause i really was looking forward to it and still am hopefully.

MaxXAttaxX2090d ago

You know there's more than one team at Square Enix, right?

Have a bubble friend!

I have been posting this very comment is most FF hate related threads, and i'm glad to see that at least one other person is intelligent enough to acknowledge this. :)

Grap2090d ago

yah but they keep announce games we didn't even ask for. give us what did you announce the last 6 years

iamtehpwn2090d ago

Uhm. I wonder if you guys will ever realize that Square Enix has more than one develop team and has multiple teams working on various projects, and the people involved with Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts are entirely separately.

Qrphe2090d ago

People still think vsXIII is dead? Really?

adorie2090d ago (Edited 2090d ago )

Versus is the final, remaining strand that holds my interest in this company that has fallen from it's former self(s)

so there working on reworking on rehashing code. /clap. im not rebuying this game nor am i gonna pay for this

Reibooi2090d ago (Edited 2090d ago )

Firstly they are not reworking or rehashing code. The new engine and server tech has been built from the ground up for the game, something the original launch didn't do(which lead to many of it's performance issues as the engine wasn't very scalable.

2nd anybody who owns a copy of the original game won't have to rebuy the game the new client will be free to those who have a copy already.

300 devs on remaking a game that tanked so badly in sales, and is sitting at a 4.9 at metacritic/gamerankings, and is soon to be going up against F2P games like Swtor and Guild wars 2. The thing that is keeping square enix alive is final fantasy on everything except calculators/Eidos games and portable games.

I think everyone should apply for Wada's job cause noone can make a bigger mess then him the decisions he makes just blow my mind.

AdmiralSnake2090d ago

They're committed to FF14, whether you like it or not, also, from what I've seen on youtube, the community for that game is really excited for the new updates square is planning. It will go f2p eventually, but square is trying really hard to get the game on track.

adorie2090d ago (Edited 2090d ago )

FF fanboys need to take a step back and at least examine this company. Does this game deserve to succeed? That is what I am asking myself.

I have been into FInal Fantasy since the NES.It was one of the better RPG when I was looking for something more than just numbers and victory...I didn't want to believe that the merger with Enix would do more harm than good, but it has done just that.

Without competition from Enix,the Square portion of this disaster isn't even trying any more...let's not even talk about the fact that at least half their star talent has left the company for greener pastures.

Yoichi Wada has buil tan impressive company, but has done nothing to show us how much they should shine.

AdmiralSnake2090d ago

How long will people keep talking about the merging ?

Okay so you say "FF fanboys" need to take a step back, what about the "FF elitist" crowd ? The ones who think they know EVERYTHING and no matter what square does, they sit, moan and complain about everything.

We don't really know the reasons as to why they left, least I never heard of them, only assumptions by the elitist crowd.

Anyway, I believe the game deserves to succeed, seeing as to how they've been working on remaking the entire game for more than a year now because it tanked so badly.

The community for FF reborn is actually excited for these changes, and some even planning on going back to the game once it comes out. I for one plan on buying the game once it drops for the PS3.

Crystallis2090d ago

What do you mean "it will go F2P eventually"?

AdmiralSnake2090d ago


I believe the game will go f2p eventually because the p2p model isn't doing very well for most games. Plus the f2p model is making some companies A LOT of money. A lot of people still play FF11, and square eventually needs to find a way of getting those players to convert to FF reborn.
