February 2014 ? Now that's perfect to lose interest even more.

Next gen will be out for a couple of months by time this game hits the shelves. It will be hard to justify a 60$ purchase on a last gen console.

I`'ll still get because I`'ve already completed 13 & 13-2. Might as well finish the trilogy.

who buys games at full price? You guys need to shop around a bit more, you can find most games available day one for $49.99

Also most people won't have next gen consoles in early 2014 so it doesn't really matter.

same for me I just want some closure.

SOD_Delta2017d ago (Edited 2017d ago )

@tel777 I buy games I like and a fan of at full price. Games like The Last of Us (IMO) are well worth the 60$ price tag. Developers that deserve my $ get my $.

Also, I may have been misleading in my previous post. I most likely won't get Lightning Returns day one. I was just saying that it's hard to justify a 60$ purchase on last gen consoles. I will however still get the game at a later/cheaper date.

I'm on the fence. I enjoyed the story in FF13 enough but FF13-2 had one of the weakest stories out of any FF game. For all the praise F13-2 got for its exploration, I really didn't think it felt like a game from the FF world, the time travel aspect really lost my interest. I'm really wondering if they will go in a better direction with lightning returns or if the story will only feel more lost from the original FF feel.

Agreed by then I will be enjoying me nex gen console and wont be using my ps3. This game was supposed to be out next month so its a joke is been delayed almost a whole year since it uses the same engine as previous games. S-E are really slow lately at games from there Japanese side. I can only think this is because they have everybody working on a FF launch title for PS4.

FEB 2014 release me this is just another FF versus 13 delay article cause lightning returns will hit first on the market. damn you squarenix

Wouldn't really call it "highly anticipated". Probably get it once it hits the bargain bucket.

abzdine2017d ago

it's crazy how Square Enix killed the Final Fantasy name!
i'd love to punch wada and the guys in charge of FF in the last 5 years in the face.

TheOneWhoIsTornApart2017d ago

Wada is gone now and I am very happy about that but I am going to give them a chance and see if they can turn the company around and start listening to the fans.

TheLyonKing2017d ago

I am interested to see what they do with this, I have accepted the fact the the 13 trilogy was a big boo boo by square but I like how they are tweaking the game mechanics in each one and using it as a guinea pig ff now.

I will be so glad when its over and they can use their resources on something useful.
