square enix is good at making excuses.

zeal0us1144d ago

True but not like Gearbox

SE how about experimenting with releasing type-0 in the US/EU already, jeez.

sinncross1144d ago

They canned it when ti was something like 90% complete on localisation.

SE are idiots... really wish they would at least consider a PSV enhanced port. That would sell like crazy.

No they're not. They may made excuses bu they're not good ones.

The sad thing is that if they had simply put out an upscaled PSP version and released that on the PS3 it would have been good enough for fans. Millions of them.

But no. Because square lives by some overrated standard they've yet actually live up to, the game's graphic would have to be equal to FF13 - and we all know how fundamentally crippled that game was!

At this point I wish they'd just close the JP studios and let Edios carry them. Stop insulting us.

Good at making excuses?
I've heard no excuse for how long its taken to even MENTION FF Versus XIII.

Dear Square-Enix,

If you want money, than do it!

Root1144d ago

Really...so instead of getting it localised for NA and Europe we could of had a HD version of it by now.

Bloody hell....Sqaure are just a bunch of morons

Final Fantasy Versus
Final Fantasy 7 remake
Final Fantasy 8 remake
Final Fantasy 9 remake
Final Fantasy 7/8/9 sequel
Final Fantasy 10 HD
Final Fantasy Type-0 for NA/Europe
Kingdom Hearts 3

All the stuff fans actually want and instead we get

Lightning, Lightning....more Lightning with side dish of nothing else except for that crappy Theatrhythm game and other stuff we don't want or care for.

Honestly they are too proud to admit they are in the wrong and that their ideas have failed. I mean the Fabula Nova Crystallis is a failure and yet they still can't move on from it.

Despite the fact they've had plenty of time to make Versus into FF15 and separate it from that silly Fabula Nova Crystallis crap I bet they haven't.

*nods*

Every time I see an employee from Square Enix speak, it builds up more frustration/rage in me.

porkChop1144d ago

I've never seen a company so out of touch with its fans.

if you're still waiting for remakes that's your problem. they say it time and time again that it's impossible to properly remake the FFs on PSone with current technology. they'd rather NOT MESS IT UP and ruin the games' reputation than go in on a cash grab.

nobody ever asks for sequels to those games, but those are much more realistic demands.

Root sometimes I think you just say things to get the popular vote, as in you just go with what's popular and hip with the majority of the other users to try and nick yourself some bubbles.

"they say it time and time again that it's impossible to properly remake the FFs on PSone with current technology"

You know what? They could make proper remakes BUT it would cost them a lot of money. You are trying to tell me SE don't want to go in on a cash grab? e.g. FF III for Android & iPhone says hi!
Why should they make a remake of the old games when their current engine isn't suited for these games? It wouldn't be profitable.

But I am glad they don't do remakes of 7/8/9 because after playing XIII and XIII-2 I am damn sure they'd find a way to even ruin a straight remake.
Show us your next FF and hopefully it'll be great again. Afterwards you may think about touching these gems of gaming.

Root1144d ago

"if you're still waiting for remakes that's your problem."

Don't try and turn this around and defend Sqaure. We, not just me, have been wanting remakes for years....it's the fact that they don't listen to what their fanbase wants.

"nobody ever asks for sequels to those games, but those are much more realistic demands."

I think you find that there are more requested then another FF13 game.

"Root sometimes I think you just say things to get the popular vote, as in you just go with what's popular and hip with the majority of the other users to try and nick yourself some bubbles."

Or maybe thats just what I think. Don't be an ass torchic like you do on most of your comments towards people. I've never fished for bubbles, trusts me you can see some of my comments are never near what's popular.

Honestly people like you on here is why we have so many arguments. Just stay on topic...jesus

Fire Wada, bring back Sakaguchi. Problem solved. Doubt that's ever gonna happen though T_T

We miss you Sakaguchi.

Godmars2901144d ago

Sakaguchi is the reason Wada is in charge.

Sakaguchi screwed up with the movie (studio) and all but bankrupted the company.

He probably still has the skills as a dev, but isn't a good manager.

xursz1144d ago

All those remakes aren't neccesary.. Get Versus Xiii and KH3 out and type-0 localized and we're good. FFX hd and Type-0 hd is like bonuses.

Oh they experimented with something else we would've never got. Good looking out for us Square /s.

BitbyDeath1144d ago

Wonder if we'll see another FFVII remake at E3 this year.

knifefight1144d ago (Edited 1144d ago )

I know that will we see game journalists talking about "rumors" of it, that's for sure. Just like every E3 and TGS since like 2007.
