GE: "Final Fantasy X HD is alive, folks. The game appeared very briefly during Sony's PS Vita presentation in Japan today."
The only good thing that was shown on that stream, and it was a few seconds of footage for character models on the game lol... Yeah, a price drop was great to see, but no new games? What the heck? I was expecting at least one game announcement on that... Sony better make up for this by blowing us away on the 20th.
It was worth noting that every other title they showed had a release date. Even if it was just as vague as 2013. But this one didn't, so my assumption is, that we won't be seeing it until at least next year.
"An official announcement will be coming soon" aka wait another 18 months for more details.
Al-bhed we get more information soon. Square Enix wouldn't leave us Besaid ourselves for too much longer.
The fact that Square Enix can't even make a simple HD upgrade in due time tells me that this company no longer remembers how to make games.
You gotta remember this was geared towards the Japanese market & what they showed are games that have a lot of interest in Japan. For the Vita to begin to climb out of the hole it is in, it first has to succeed in Japan. To get the Japanese developers on board. Once that happens we are bound to see more games & new games as well. The price cut & the 'monster style' games are a good start. Now we will see if people are interested in the Vita with this price cut.
Yeah, but we knew about everything shown... something new is what everyone wanted
Yes we knew that these games already but like DOMination said above the majority of these games have release dates. So for the Japanese it will not be a long wait for them to play these game. The sooner these games are released the better chance we may get them in the west. It was also to show that 2 of the most wanted games FFX HD & Dragon's Crown are both alive & well. That they are still being made & will be released eventually. This was a Vita Game Heaven event that was probably was to be shown last year but games weren't ready just yet. So i believe something like this will be shown again later in the year. The Vita is a different monster than the 3DS, & developing for it takes longer cause of its 'console like' capabilities. So as long as developers take the time to create good looking games on the system than personally i can wait to see what they come up with.
it doesn't only have to succeed first in japan it could succeed everyone else but the major problem is they dont localise games same thing happened to the psp where 90% of the good games were never localized and the 10% that were good games were from western developers such as GOW 2 games i would like in the vita right now is tales of hearts r and danball senki w the big problem is their only in the asian market and are probably never going to be released in the west
Clearly this stream was for Japan so there were many games, i am sure that with vita's price drop and most of these games coming out feb/mar the vita will finally get the boost it wanted in Japan, as for us in NA/PAL i am sure they will blow us away on the 20th
Even if it was only Japan, I think it would have been wise to also include Tearaway and Killone. They need a market for those games over there too.
they showed allot of monster-hunter like games also...
Holy shiz so it's true that this is on the Vita. Can't wait to play FFX on the go!
Excited for it but what I like is how every other game shown had a release date. I think 2013 will be a huge year for VIta. Once games start rolling in vita Will get a lot more support from other publishers once they see it can succeed Now any shuld hold a conference to show all the games due for ps3 in 2013 that way by Wednesday it's all PS4
"Sony better make up for this by blowing us on the 20th." FTFY
How many people are Sony expected to blow? I mean, lip chapping would be a serious problem there.
Yes!!!!!! Thank god!!!! 2013 is going to be a record year for Sony and the playstation brand!
CAN WE GET ANOTHER FF8 GAME OR FINAL FANTASY TYPE 0?
I have thought about it and decided NO DICE! /jokes Isnt it funny and sad at the same time how we are looking at the past for good final fantasy games :(.
I was at least hoping for the Type-0 Vita port but maybe it was just a rumor after all (much less localization at this point). Good thing the fan ranslations of Type-0, Valkyria Chronicles 3 and Digimon Re:Digitize are being worked on.
Dat Song :'(
I know hey it hit me right in the feels.... Brings me back when final fantasy was so good.
It was the first thing that went through my mind, the second thing was *is this even in HD?" it doesnt look it
Those piano notes...
wow so Lightning Returns, Final Fantasy X HD and Final Fantasy XIV all in a year? effectively rules out Versus XIII but still so so excited for X HD!
T_T rather have just Versus this year THEN those 3 games next year lol :P
true. If I wanted to play FFX I already have it for the PS2... These HD-releases look almost the same as the original version, the differences are intangible and they can't even compete with the 1080p/60fps of the PCSX2 emulation anyway.
The funny thing is that if versus was the one coming to 360 you would rather have XIII instead huh?
@DonFreezer: Seriously? You've nothing better to do than dust off that ancient fanboy garbage? Really? *sighing facepalm*
X the only linear FF that did it right. Fun ass minigames in this game.
Yep i agree, the final fantasy X battle system is still yet to be beaten in my eyes.... I miss controlling EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER NOT JUST FUCKING ONE!!!! Arghhh rage.
I love ff, but ffx is the only good small space ff they got, i think with todays tech, lets go back to old fashion world map jrpg, cmon s.e. just tell us ff vs 13 is alive too. You say it on feb 20 and ill pre order it the same day, idc if its unfinished, just give me the crack- i mean game man... *scratching under chin, ill suck your d- umm wow, i was going through my "no play ff games" withdraw, sorry bout that
I've got your final fantasy...IN MY PANTS. http://images3.wikia.nocook... http://24.media.tumblr.com/... Exploiting addiction for tear-drenched man head? Well played me.
Anybody else get nostalgia chills over the music?
The second I heard it, instantly brought a smile to my face.
You aren't the only one. Time to dust off my copy. :(
Haha no, I never stopped playing the game. Muwhahaha I beat the system, Squar-Enix's awful horrendous system! (6) sigh... It's time for a worthy successor though.
This was definitely the highlight of the presentation (for me at least). Very excited to see this project is still happening. FFX with improved visuals and trophies? YES PLEASE! I just hope they will allow us to skip cutscenes, so I don't have to sit through that horribly awkward laughing scene. Ugh, if you've played it, you know what I'm talking about.
Definitely one of the most awkward scenes in gaming I totally agree and was pretty bad but it kinda fit the narrative at the point in the story. In the aftermath of the attack forcing yourself to laugh would come out incredibly strained and awkward. I mean Yuna knew she driving herself towards her own death yet she forced herself to laugh at the very idea of it. It would be nothing like real laughter like from a joke. Its a little much but it fit the game. imo
Am I dreaming? Did Square Enix just make a right move? WHAT!!!???
They have to make right decisions now, if they want to see another cycle of consoles, im only waiting for almost bankruptcy, youll see. Ff 7 remake would be announced in a heartbeat, money would just pour in. Its sad it takes s.e. to lose alot to realise "hey, we need to listen to people"
Yeah true... for some reason I also believe devs have been at war with hardware (SONY, Nintendo and MS) to bring down the price of gaming systems. Cheaper means better for them since they will get better sales. In the long run it might be the hardware side to blame instead of the devs. It seems like devs want a powerful machine at a loss to than gain profit from awesome games. But yeah ...it really does look like SE has had its head up its behind from our end do LOL.
@cat But at the same time everyone has to realize that it is software that moves the hardware off the shelves into peoples' homes.
what "right" move? Wasn't this HD re-release announced like a gazillion of years ago? Square is taking more time to just raise the resolution than what it took to make the game back in 1999.
Ha! I never thought about it like that but you're probably right and it's a good point!
YeEeeeeeEEEeeEs!!!! I cannot wait for my FFX HD !!!
at least the project is still alive.
The game is still coming & a price drop came.. Thats good enough cuz the 20th is only a couple days away! PS is gonna show bigger n better announcements then.. Hopefully this boosts the sales out there so more games come out that arent ports
What did he just say? Xbox 360?
still coming to PS3 as well right?
Square enix still stuck in their past success. more HD remakes yaayyyy...-_-
I really don't understand why people buy these "remastered" hd. Please don't get me wrong but you can play your original game on pc with emulator: 1080p, anti aliasing, you can save anywhere, etc... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
But can you play it on a bus like with a Vita? I know what you mean though.
Again, the PCSX2 takes A LOT of resources. Do people not understand that emulation isn't a simple plug and play matter? I suppose most aren't around for when emulation just starts out and then get on the bandwagon once all the kinks have been worked out after YEARS of work. Emulation is said to take 5 times the resources of the original source hardware. A game like FFX would require a pretty decent gaming PC to run at 1080p and 60FPS and you still have to mess around with all kinds of settings and speedhacks and fixes to get it working right. It's not just "hey, download this program and play FFX on your PC."
I like adding the HD remakes to my trophy collection along with nostalgia.
Hey me and the guy in the video have matching Vita's.
No major improvements on graphic like the rumor said..just sharper images
and people will buy this in droves and Square will keep milking us with garbage instead of releasing FFvs or other new games. =/
i think it looks great. i cant wait to play this game in my hands!!!
it's the same game and it looks the same. The footage is not even HD since this is the Vita version. -__-
qHD is still HD. HD also isn't just video but Audio as well.
The HD remake is already way passed it due. It's my favorite FF but unless its 20 bucks, I don't see me buying it new.
i was hoping that they will put ff 13 characters quality models:( they had time ...but still...its ok like this :) Yuna is my frist video game love :D And I still love her :)
Buying it. Looks a lot cleaner than the PS2 version.
yup... but lets hope character models are the same all throughout the game... ffx gamplay and cutscenes look completly different
sweet memories, that brief look video made me soo happy today :)
Yesssssss! Can't wait!!
No thanks. Show FFvs13. I'm already tired of corridor games that have "Final Fantasy" slapped on the box. FFX is nothing but an old version of FF13.
