Why make games when you can make tech demo's. Knowing Square enix this is what they teased at the meeting.

I love how Square enix still thinks they can get away with that, when most people are really fed up with how they treat fans. If they did this kind of thing before FF13 i wouldve been a bit hyped, now i just want to throw rotten tomato's at the guy.

Why make tech demo's when you can just walk up on stage and say "there will be more Final Fantasy"

bicfitness2093d ago

There's a phenomenal amount of hubris involved for SE to throw that name around and think that it still means what it did 5 years ago.

"Please be excited"...


PirateThom2093d ago (Edited 2093d ago )

Be excited for a series we have managed to completely ruin and destroy all hype for.

If he came onto the stage at the Sony meeting and announced Versus with a new trailer AND THEN said be excited for E3 then fair enough

ChozenWoan2093d ago (Edited 2093d ago )

Give me a reason to buy a $E game this gen and then I'll be excited. The only SE game I've played in years was FF12, and that was because I had a backwards compatible PS3.

It's sad when you tell people to take your money and they still give you the run around... yet ask you to get excited for the sake of getting excited. Now if Tetsuya Nomura had gotten up on stage at the end, then I'd be very excited.

Try a Square-Enix game called NIER. That game is actually quite good. Plus the OST for it is incredible!

i never understood why show tech demo's just games you have in developerment tech demos i think are a waste of time

SugarSoSweet2093d ago

agreed and i'm happy more ppl are speaking up ever since Square merged with Enix they've really treated fans like garbage always putting up countdowns to announcements like their games are THAT special. Forcing us to spend money on a full movies just to play demos pimping the FF13 and FF7 name and making crappy spin offs nobody gives a shit about

The story lines in FF10-2 to FF13 have been GARBAGE so has the characters

God I love Square Soft but I HATE Square Enix

dasbeer882093d ago

SquareSoft died when its key member, Hironobu Sakaguchi stepped away from the company so he could create his own studio Mistwalker (the creators of Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey, The Last Story). Since then, the future of Square has been a sinking ship.

mistertwoturbo2093d ago

It is all Youchi Wada's fault. That guy has been consistently degrading the company.

The only SE game I enjoyed this entire generation was Sleeping Dogs, and even that was barely their game.

EverydayGuy2093d ago

I thought FF 13 was a tech demo.

konnerbllb2093d ago

It certainly didn't have any good gameplay or story.

Will be intresting to see which 3rd party developers will come on the Xbox stage at the Xbox Event that MS is hosting.

I dont think they will use the same people that Sony used for the PS4 announcement so I expect:

From Software
Insomniac Games
CD Projekt
Activision is the exception as they have to show something Call of Duty becuase COD is huge on the Xbox.

Jek_Porkins2093d ago

I was thinking Rock* as well, Microsoft has deep pockets and could easily have managed to get some timed content on the next Xbox.

Could be part of the reason GTA was delayed. Obviously Activision will be there in full support of the next Xbox, maybe Microsoft locked up maps again?

DonFreezer2093d ago

Facepalm.If they did this and that before FF13 bluh bluh bluh.Are Sony fanboys so butthurt that even after 5 years they can't realise that FF13 sucked from the start of it's production line and not because of the Xbox 360.

aceitman2093d ago

Maybe ms asked them to do one.

They obviously don't want to show the same tech demo at MS's press conference.

Blackdeath_6632093d ago (Edited 2093d ago )

i can't find it in me to get excited about anything square enix says or produces anymore. they havent got anything to show for all the reputation they have built or the promises they've made. just more HD remakes of games for a time gone by. they have failed miserably previous gen FF13 and FF14 didn't really live up to expectations. i actually prefer that they don't release versus untill they are confident they can get it right. releasing that game and messing it up is not a good idea.

PirateThom2093d ago

I am very interested in what the old Eidos studios are doing, but Square Enix Japan are basically doing nothing of note.

Chrono2093d ago

I hope it's a next gen Chrono game.
