Sorry, but after their teasers about mobile games lately, I'm not excited in the least for any news SE has. I suppose that's a good thing though. If they did show Versus, at least it'll catch me by surprise lol!
dasbeer88  +   492d ago
The chances of Versus XIII being announced is basically slim to none. Also, I'll bet the chances of Versus XIII coming to this year's E3 is probably going to be less than 50% chance. But hey, at least we can be excited for XIII-3 right? :)
abzdine  +   492d ago
tbh i dont give a damn about what they have to reveal, it will be some FF13 swim suits for the summer or something...

I'm only looking to see what they have to show at Sony's E3 conference because they promised they would show something.
Pyrrhus  +   492d ago
I have a feeling it will be information about lightning returns. I really hope it is then we get Versus info at E3. If its some other bullshit, then its a waste of time for them to even talk.

They need to get their current games in production out before talking about anymore futur titles.

nobody liked the first FFXIII what in the world made them think we wanted another TWO

If versusXIII is announced again at MS reveal then Square will forever be dead to me.
minimur12  +   491d ago
What was that mystery game they announced a while back?

maybe theyre talking about that.
murdered soul suspect?
Sevir  +   491d ago
It can only be 1 of 3 things.

1. They will be at MS's Conference to announce the NEXTGEN Multiplatform release of FFV13

2. They partnered with Sony to announce FF15 formerly known as Verus 13 to steal thunder away from MS's conference on the 21st....

3. A new Next Gen RPG/FF game is announced for MS at the Xbox Reveal.

My Money is on number 1 or 3.

It'll be interesting to see to say the least.

They already said PS4 fans should be excited for E3 so i'm sure what ever is announced next week will be next gen related.
weekev15  +   491d ago
@ Sevir
Agreed this will be something to do with next box reveal
Im going for a new Deus Ex with exclusive XBox content.
Pyrrhus  +   491d ago

And what about a date for LR or FF14?
I dont understand how all this FFV13 info will come out before they have tried to hype up those 2 other games.
DeadlyFire  +   492d ago
Next week could mean Xbox 720 reveal of something.
TheThing  +   492d ago
Xbox 720 IS next week. E3's a few weeks after i think.
animegamingnerd  +   492d ago
sadly the news will be versus is now a iphone game i bet
CaptainSheep  +   492d ago
That would be... so cruel.
shoddy  +   491d ago
That would be fuk you SE.
Pyrrhus  +   492d ago
At the end of the day, its SE. Theres no need for us to get overhyped and excited after their recent run of things (especially that anti-climatic BS are the PS4 show)
maddfoxx  +   491d ago
Their announcements are always underwhelming, so I'm not getting my hopes up. A new Tomb Raider or Hitman announcement would really excite me. They should release dates for the X|X-2 remaster and Kingdom Hearts HD releases. . . that would make more than a few fans happy. I would love some new Versus info but I know its not going to happen. I'm giving them until TGS to show Verus before I give up on it. Even a Type0 US announce will please a lot of fans. But we all know SE is a troll company and probably wont do any of the things listed above. I'm really expecting them to role into the NextBox reveal, show that same Agni Philosophy tech demo. . . and then leave after saying "see you at E3 guys ^_^v".

It's already confirmed that the release date will be revealed on the 31st...so no, it won't be next week. I'm betting it's a trailer for the FFVI iOS remake.....or maybe something related to the new Xbox.
kalkano  +   491d ago
They won't remake it for ios. They'd just port it, like they did with V.
Kamikaze135  +   491d ago
FFV on iOS is a remake of the GBA version and SE hinted at a FFVI remake.

yep basically ff mmo announcement crap and lightning returns ff crap. nothing new or special really. nothing anyone wants really.
Forbidden_Darkness  +   492d ago
The same week as the Next Gen Xbox unveiling... Hmm.
Kenshin_BATT0USAI  +   492d ago
Exactly. I don't think Sony fans will be happy at whatever they announce.
Inception  +   492d ago
I don't think the majority of Square / RPG fans are really happy with how SE made their games lately, aside from their western dev of course.

And two games from SE japan that i think shine the most are FF Type-0 and Bravely Default. FF Type-0 only for japan and Bravely Default ironicly isn't purely made by SE. More irony is those two games are for handheld.

So, if SE announce Versus or a new FF for the new Xbox, i don't think it will automaticly be a brag worthy material for Xbox fans. Even i still pessimistic if Versus can give me more fun than the abysmal XIII.

Pyrrhus  +   492d ago
No im thinking the opposite, if SE release Versus on the next xbox as well, PS fans would be fuming. I would hazard a guess that quite a number of people (me included) bought a PS3 because of dreams of KH3 and FFVS13. Instead we all got a subpar game in FF13.

At the end of the day, I highly doubt they would announce a previously stated PS3 exclusive, unless MS are serious about spending the money.

I still feel its gonna be a FF14 or a Lightning Returns announcement with which they would want to 'hype' before anything Versus related.
Inception  +   491d ago

I understand your felling. But why should PS fans must mad if Versus gone multiplat? They even don't know for sure if Versus have the quality above FF XIII. And if Versus still PS3 exclusive but the quality isn't that different from XIII, than are PS fans still braging how good Versus is? I think that's really dumb, considering SE quality this day are far from the golden age of Squaresoft.
Kenshin_BATT0USAI  +   492d ago
News next week? The new Xbox announcement next week?

hmm. I don't know why, but I feel like this news won't be pleasant for Sony fans.
DeadlyFire  +   492d ago
Versus now multiplatform. likely possible.
SpideySpeakz  +   492d ago
Versus is a urban legend. A myth told by SE to keep the fanboys all warm and cozy.
TheThing  +   492d ago
maybe, maybe not. it was ps3 exclusive for 7 years. i don't see how could any ps3 gamer get mad for Microsoft possibly reviving it?

Kenshin_BATT0USAI  +   492d ago
If it ends up making the jump to next gen no Sony fan can complain IMO. The main issue people had was no blu-ray or the 360 bottlenecked the ps3. But I have my money on the ps4 and new Xbox probably having the same specs for the most part. So really the issue becomes null.
nick309  +   492d ago
After what ff xiii is idc about versus, i dont get hyped until i try it by myself.
Timesplitter14  +   492d ago
SE isn't really relevant anymore. They haven't released anything good since the PS2 era
denisx04  +   492d ago
Will you be saying that in a year or two? hehe
aiBreeze  +   492d ago
Probably not, they'll be bankrupt by then if they treat next gen like this one.. either that or will solely be making games for smartphones.
Inception  +   492d ago
Haven't released anything good since the PS2 era is a overblow statement. SE DID released some good title since the PS2 era such as Crisis Core, The World Ends With You, FF Type-0, and Bravely Default (well, it's not made purely by SE). Too bad a lot of people choose not to play those games because it released for handhelds.
Rynocirator  +   491d ago
Crisis core was, in my opinion, better than ff7 and people refuse to play it because it's on handheld and think that it will ruin their nostalgia (which it will because you won't care at all about cloud after you play it) so they completely disregard it. I really want type-0 to come to america...OHHH maybe it is an announcement for type-0.
Rynocirator  +   491d ago
Hopefully the new CEO knows what he's doing, Yoichi Wada didn't know a thing about what people wanted. You have him to blame for everything that has been released since 2003 (minus kingdom hearts 2 and ffxii of course those were decent enough) but he was a perv, he was the reason x-2, ffxiii, fxiii-2, and ffxiii lightning returns even exist. He's also the reason ffxiv wasn't done in the first place. He made the worst decisions any game company CEO could have made and did it multiple times.
FF14 on the next Xbox.

That's all.

Ok, maybe an exclusive weapon for the Xbox version of the third FF13 game. I forget the title but it's something about Lightning again and nobody really cares about that anyway.

A new dues ex or just cause?
denisx04  +   492d ago

but square soft.. yes, absolutely ^_^

Time exclusive dlc for FF13 Lightning Returns for 360 LOL ahahahaha. MS only in it for timed exclusives DUH
wishingW3L  +   492d ago
you can bet it will be some random mobile game.
its_JEFF  +   492d ago
This could get interesting. There may be 2 possible scenerios:

1. Sony and Square are planning to reveal a big title and exclusive deal/partnership for a new, meaning old... FF Versus, Final Fantasy in an attempt to steal some of the Xbox reveal thunderrr!

2. Square and MS have come together for an unpresidented partnership bringing Final Fantasy... 7 remake exclusively to the next Xbox!!! thus executing one of the most amazing coop's in history!

or Square could just be announcing a new mobile game. IDK I'm not a psychic!
oof46  +   491d ago
I don't get the unadulterated love for Final Fantasy 7. 6 was the masterpiece.
its_JEFF  +   491d ago
I think for a lot of people FF7 was their first "major" RPG. I guess it's the same for those who can't get enough Mario/Zelda. They're all chasing that moment or feeling from that first play through.

I've never played FF6 but I've always heard that its better than 7. I've gotta play that one day.
KingKelloggTheWH  +   491d ago
Both are great,quit being angry that 7 is more popular and get over it.
oof46  +   490d ago
@Jeff: While 7 was the first in the series for a lot of people, 6 was the gem. If Squeenix was to remake it, it would be an opportunity for people to play a better Final Fantasy game.

@King Kellog: Who's angry?

Lightning returns release date and most upcoming games from them will be Smartphone games - Worst case scenario
TheDivine  +   491d ago
Localize Dragon Quest 7, Type-0 vita or 3ds release, and Vs 13.

Maybe surprise us with a new Vagrant Story, Chrono, Valkyrie Profile, or a new game that's as good as those. I'd love a HD 2d FF or Chrono game like a modern snes title. Make a new FF Tactics as good as Fire Emblem Awakening. Do something other than FF13-3 please.
shuuwai  +   491d ago
Chrono Trigger 3 for ps4/xbox infinity.
ya'll know you want it.
Sadly it'll be another FF game..with lighting' again ...

Or maybe its a new "Secret of Mana" or "Brave Fencer Musashi"
Lucreto  +   491d ago
It is most likely Final Fantasy XIV.

Square Enix said they will announce the PS3 beta at the end of May. It is also meant to come out in Summer so a release date might be now set.

That sounds urban to me. SO, there is a car in Versus' trailer (If that means anything), but more importantly, one game they made that had a major importance with urban settings is The World Ends With You.

TWEWY 2 would be awesome.
kasser  +   491d ago
Dear Square Enix, if your next announcement does not include Versus then we are not surprised.

LordMe  +   491d ago
Prolly gonna be Versus going multi. 7 years dev time racks up a bill. Unless Sony did kick some funding to them for it.

For some reason I am expecting Thief to make it's grand showing there. But I would be fine in seeing Versus still alivee and kicking, multiplatform or not I just want the game. And SE has been pushing their western games far more then the Japanese games anymore.

Pyrrhus  +   491d ago
Why would they announce anything versus related when they havent even spewed enough information on the 2 things that are going to come out AT LEAST before it?

We dont really have a date for FF14 (and it could be going multiplat) and we dont have much info on Lightning Returns.

Does SE announcement necessarily even have to coincide with the Xbox reveal (which seems to be more about the hardware than games)?
Plagasx  +   491d ago
Please announce Just Cause 3 already!
iamlegend9999  +   491d ago
Hopefully it means that there gonna announce that the next final fantasy won't be PS4 exclusive
OmniSlashPT  +   491d ago
Are they going to show us that engine demo they've shown like 5 times already? lol
CLOUD1983  +   491d ago
This E3 will be the last for SE to show info regarding Versus & I'm talking for concrete stuff like a new gameplay trailer & an estimated release day, also they must make it clear if this game remain a PS3 exclusive as all the trailers was saying, failing to do one of the above it will be bye-bye senorita & GTFO! simple as that.
Drabent  +   491d ago
SE gonna tell the world that I get ffxiv ps3 beta first because I had all lv.90 characters before most jp players:p
Jek_Porkins  +   491d ago
Maybe it'll happen at the next Xbox unveiling? Rumor had them working on something exclusive for Microsoft, but even if it's something that used to be exclusive to another platform and now coming to a Microsoft platform, that would be a megaton.

Next week is going to be interesting for gamer's!
Minato-Namikaze  +   491d ago
Where is this rumor you speak of? Never heard anything like that.
