Rumor: Final Fantasy Versus XIII coming to PS3 and PS4

Final Fantasy Versus XIII, oft-rumored to have made the jump from PlayStation 3 to PlayStation 4 (and with a Final Fantasy XV name change, at that), will be available on both platforms, according to a source “close to Square Enix.” (Final Fantasy XV, PS3, PS4)

Great! I just hope it's coming at all, but PS4 version all the way if true.
Blackdeath_663  +   1026d ago
i can fully understand why sony would want versus to come out on their new console and why they would make it an exclusive. sounds promising but still mere speculation. only time will tell
TopDudeMan  +   1026d ago
Well, it's not really their call. It's more to do with when square get their finger out their ass and finish it.
sengoku  +   1026d ago
Sony has payed Square Enix an undisclosed amount of money as the project hit a snag.
sony's support has kept the project on track and made it exclusive for PS 3&4
it' might be only a timed exclusive, but fans of the series remember the series Playstation heritage.

i'm looking forward to see the next installment with 8gb i'm guessing the ps4 version will become quite the looker and hopefully a lot more open

"Note that today, the title would be dedicated to machinery Sony and do not come out on Xbox 360."

Oh Yeah! This is great!

Finally! I will buy it day 1.
Pyrrhus  +   1026d ago
Personally, Im hoping that they just rename it Final Fantasy 15 and be done with the disappointing Final Fantasy 13 tag.
Zezo  +   1026d ago
you mean final fantasy XV
Ausbo  +   1026d ago
It will. Just in time for ps5

Honestly i don't think people care what system it's on wether it's the PS3 OF PS4. At this time.I'm sure most just want a release date already.

And if its not a good, is the typical over the top vapidly disjointed pretentiousness Square seems only capable of putting out these days, how many tables are you gonna flip then?

The Table flipping really killed me.
Lol. Thanks for that laugh! Bubbles.
sherimae2413  +   1026d ago

also the fact that most of the team was put on helping with the FFXIII games

r21  +   1026d ago
This better be the title the SE guys that showed up at the PS4 and basically said please be excited!
talocaca  +   1026d ago
That explains why it is a "sensitive topic" within Square Enix
Williamson  +   1026d ago
Never been good at rpgs or the traditional FF games, but im actually interested in this game since its an action rpg(Right?).
Salooh  +   1026d ago
Same here. I don't like final fantasy games but this is day one if it's like the trailers..
mrmancs  +   1026d ago
it's all about the games....
trenso1  +   1026d ago
i hope it just comes soon.
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   1026d ago
As Long as it comes out on PS3 like they said it would years ago fine.
abzdine  +   1026d ago
since this game has been revealed ages ago if we remove all the rumors there will be nothing left.. all we hear is rumors this is so ridiculous

It should be release on PS4. Because if they don't.. I will put SE in the Oblivion and eternal nothingness.
Ninja_G_Aidan  +   1026d ago
If released on PS3 aswell, wouldn't it be dumbed down?

It's just like XIII got released on 360 and they took away a fair bit from the game because of the space ect...
socks  +   1026d ago
The game started development on the PS3. I dont see your problem. Just get in on the next gen.
izumo_lee  +   1026d ago
Unlike with Final Fantasy 13 the PS4 will also use 50 GB blu ray discs & not be compromised by DVD9. So 'content' wise the games will be about the same the only difference will be the graphical fidelity.

This would actually make sense for both Sony and Square enix. SE gets the $$$ from the huge install base the ps3 has and $ony gets a huge launch title for the Ps4.
nypifisel  +   1026d ago
If FFXV is a launch title for the PS4 it very well could be a system seller, one Sony would like to have (Hence why they've paid for exclusivity)
RuleofOne343  +   1026d ago
Your comment make's it seem like the PS install base buy all the all games. if so why do their exclusive have horrible sale #s
Sevir  +   1026d ago
lmao ass off besides halo and gears... actually just Halo
Every other Xbox exclusive sells relatively the same as PS3 exclusives.

Uncharted and Gears sells 5+ million
GT sells more than forza
HR out sold Alan wake
Fable tops out at 2-3 million
LBP tops out at 4 million
Killzone rakes in 2-3 million
Infamous sells 2-3 million
God of War stands at 4 million
Resistance and Motorstorm franchize have sold 8 million units respectively
and PGR sold like 2-3 million units each.

Just quit talking!
RuleofOne343  +   1026d ago
@Sevir not saying that Xbox 360 game sale great or have outstanding sale #, but his comment makes it seem like all 75 million PS fans are going to go out to buy this one cause it on their system.
Crystallis  +   1026d ago

""his comment makes it seem like all 75 million PS fans are going to go out to buy this one cause it on their system.""

Who in their right mind would think a game would sell the exact amount of an install base of a console? What kind of world are you living in? Since the ps3 is at around 80mil install base it would make sense for SE to release Versus XIII on the ps3 as well on the PS4. I don't know where you got """like all 75 million PS fans are going to go out to buy this one cause it on their system""" from what I said previously in my first post.
AkatsukiPain  +   1026d ago
Its not a rumour anymore. Its going to be coming to both ps3 & ps4. Also its still exclusive.

This game better blow me away and dont really have high expectations for it considering 13 was poo so if it is mind blowing i will be more so impressed other than if id been playing epic ff's for the last few years.
creatchee  +   1026d ago
Honestly, does anybody really care about Versus anymore? Seriously - history has taught that games with way too long development times are often disappointing, if not straight up bad. Too Human, Duke Nukem Forever, and even Gran Turismo 5 failed to produce a experience that justifies the obscene amount of time that it took between announcement and going on sale.

People are still basing their excitement on a six year old trailer that, when regarded alongside today's games, looms neither as groundbreaking nor as exciting as it did when it was first released. Add in the recent FF games (which weren't awful, but definitely are not as well thought of as games from the glory days of the franchise amongst fans), and really there isn't any reason for anticipation anymore. If it ends up coming out one day, I'll probably check it out, but I stopped looking forward to it a long time ago.
nypifisel  +   1026d ago
I'm sure the game had come a fair bit in development when Sony told SE about the PS4 and that they wanted a game for it. This probably led to SE to scrap all progress so far to start from scratch developing for the PS4 (an explanation to why it's been in development for so long). Expect a game with the same concept but something you haven't seen before made primarily for the PS4.

That's what I think anyway.

6 year old trailer? I dont know if you'd kept up on this game, but i have. But it looks miles better then FFXIII, 2 and 3. The difference is this game is being directed by Nomura and most fans have faith this game will be good because of that.

@Minato-Namikaze u have to love the fact that the music in trailer kind of sounds the same as the kingdom hearts music.

I hope itll be like "coming on ps3 next year and port it to ps4 soon", and hope its not "coming to ps3 & ps4 soon" geezus christ thatll be like another several years of waiting again

If it is coming to the PS4 then it will be a rental at best. I'm not buying a game after it was delayed for so long just to be put on another console. Then again, you still wouldn't hear about it again until they announce it again for the PS5.
Tzuno  +   1026d ago
Well is hard to release when you work for 3 consoles.
izumo_lee  +   1026d ago
I now wonder if the 'silence' on this game from Nomura & Squarenix may be coming from an agreement with Sony now that it is rumored they may be publishing the game. It would make sense that Nomura just recently said that news on FFvs13 is delicate & that a date for a re-reveal is set (possibly E).

No matter what system it may be the game will do great. Every numbered Final Fantasy game on a Playstation console has done over 5 million sales alone. Heck even a polarizing game like Final Fantasy 13 has done close to that number.

I believe this game is an agreement between Sony & Squarenix to let Final Fantasy 13 be a multiplatform game. Every Playstation console has had a Final Fantasy game debut exclusively on their system.

Final Fantasy 7 - PS 1
Final Fantasy 10 - PS 2

Final Fantasy 13 was supposedly the exclusive game for the PS3 but since Squarenix & Microsoft struck a contract for the game, just like with Grand Theft Auto, Sony wanted insurance that an exclusive game would come their way. So having it on the PS3 & PS4 would subsidize the cost for developing the game would be my guess.

Again we'll see what will happen at E3 where hopefully all the answers about this game will be revealed.
DigitalRaptor  +   1026d ago
No Xbox?

Just kidding, you guys deserve to have it on your system. Will Xbox get it though is the real question? That article seems closer to the truth every day.

This game stirs butterflies for me, so anxiously awaiting any new info, which i predict will be at Sony's E3 conference.

It will not be on Xbox. Nomura has stated this multiple times already. I wouldn't keep twiddling thumbs for it.

Besides, it doesn't need to be on anything else. It will sell plenty on PS3/4 or both.

If this is true, then that would settle it for me. I won't be replacing my stolen PS3, I will be buying the PS4 + FFXV bundle that will no doubt be releasing. I'd pay $500 for that.
uuaschbaer  +   1026d ago
A PS4 with a Versus print would be quite the dog's bollocks.
