Final Fantasy 15 to Include In-Game Cellphone, Release Dependent on PS4/Xbox One Sales – Rumour

Gaming Bolt: "Final Fantasy 15 and Kingdom Hearts 3 won’t be seen at E3 2014 this year, sadly enough, but Gameranx has pointed towards a Twitter account [Officialffxv] that is releasing information about the game. There is literally no indication whatsoever that any of it is true but it is interesting." (Final Fantasy XV, PC, PS3, PS4, Wii, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Hard to tell

Really...I think they are selling enough for us to get some information.

It's frustrating trying to make sense of SE's decisions. All I can say is that they make a lot of poor ones
Nitrowolf2  +   616d ago
Ugh i hate the based on sales release. The consoles are doing their part already, everyone who wants this game will buy one when it has a release.

Weve waited long enough se. Based on sales, pffft should have released it last gen then if they are gonna keep pushing the date back.

It better be worth the wait. The ff13 seeies was a letdown.

Inb4 releases ff13 remaster collection.

They are idiots

Seriously, I mean I just don't see how anyone can defend them anymore. These consoles are selling better then expected and they really need to see how well they do. If they had the Wii U sales I'd understand but they don't

It will never ever happen as long as they are standing but I really wish they would just sell the rights to someone who will take care of the franchise, stick to it's roots and will get the games out within a 3-4 years of each other.

Even the decision behind doing FF11 and FF14 as online games was silly. Why didn't they just do a new series. Final Fantasy Online, Final Fantasy Online II, Final Fantasy Online III etc

Then you have all the spin offs and different platforms for Kingdom Hearts instead of cracking on with KH3. Confusing the story even more for people who can't afford all platforms.

It's not just them though Capcom are like Square Enix aswell. I feel like something is happening to Japanese gaming companies. Some are alright but the majority of them have made some poor decisions over the years, even Nintendo. Is the Western market affecting them too much? Are they too obsessed chasing after it? Or are they so proud that they refuse to admit they made bad calls and will not rest until people love the choices they've made. They fail to realise one bad decision leads to another, and another, you can't turn it around.

If Square Enix were a normal company, they would of seen the error of their ways with FF13, admitted they were wrong with the changes, distanced themselves from it, bring out the next game as soon as they could while also starting on a FF7 remake and getting Type 0 localised

If they did that then we would of had FF15 years ago and maybe a shit load of information of Kingdom Hearts 3 by now

The frustrating thing is that mess up, proceed to spend twice the effort to fix it, then get praised and defended for fixing it rather than admonished for not getting it right the first time.

@foxtrot:
Square's legitimate problem seems to be that the artist are running the asylum.

@Nitro, spot on.
The consoles are selling well. They shouldn't be twiddling their thumbs just to give us some info.
Having said that this might be a non-issue. The PS4 and XBO have what? 11-12 million sold already? By the end of 2014 or better yet the end of this fiscal year, the PS4 and XBO would've sold at least 15 or 20 million.
Panthers  +   616d ago
@ Godsmar

The reason for that is very often, MMOs either perform great or are left to rot. I was extremely excited for SWTOR and while it was fun, it was not the game I had hoped for. If they did that and fixed it, that would be awesome. (there are rumblings on reddit about Disney funding the fix of that game. I hope its true)

Right now since it's a "rumor" that's what I'm going to treat it as - a rumor. With that said, if SE does base FF15 on "current gen" they can keep the game and I'll support another company that is willing to risk putting out a game to support the fans over being greedy.
ArchangelMike  +   616d ago
I've just about given up on FFXV. I'm looking forward to the FFXII remaster already. Because at this rate it'll release before FFXV!!!
Dark11  +   616d ago
I wonder what will they do if PS4/X1 continue to sell well worldwide but failed in japan.
-Foxtrot  +   616d ago
Well with this whole Western approach they have got going on at the minute it shouldn't stop them. They know the rest of the world is much bigger then just Japan
joab777  +   616d ago
This is the real reason all games hav been delayed. Almost all games delayed are next gen only. The ones that havnt been are for both like Destiny, Dragon Age, CoD etc.

With the budgets the way they r, these companies need xmas and tax season to hit b4 they hav a large enough base to recoup their costs.
Magicite  +   616d ago
FF7 released 3 years after launch of PS1.
FF10 1 year after PS2.
FF10 4 years after PS3.

Square releases FF game on PS only once it has accumulated certain sales in Japan. They stated this themselves. Currently and unfortunately PS4 seems like worst selling PS in Japan. Hopefully things can change once Japanese developers start making games for it.
rulparra  +   615d ago
The only thing SE think to know is they believe that cell phone is the future for playing. thye all have caca in their heads, type is a great game on handheds (PSP) not for playing it on a fu.king smart phone.

smart phones are great but not for playing that king of games.
kenshiro100  +   615d ago
Square is pissing me off with their crap.
richierich  +   616d ago
Yeah howcome they keep releasing Lightening shovelware games but we cant even get a new trailer of FF15 at this years E3??
FF15 is the only SquareEnix game Im interested in

XiSasukeUchiha  +   616d ago
FF15 going to be a amazing masterpiece of art.
ArchangelMike  +   616d ago
Not so much. At this poitn it's very hard for it to live up to it's own hype. Plus Squenix have developed a bad track record.
KingKelloggTheWH  +   615d ago
Yeah but it is Nomura's game, if Square hasnt messed with it, it will be good. Nomura just makes great games.
Pug  +   615d ago
I don't hold out much hope for it, the last trailer looked way too hack n slash for my liking.
ScamperCamper  +   615d ago
From what I've seen, agreed. Looks pretty damn sweet: http://www.ps4accessories.c... I mean it's a bit early one to say for 100% how it's going to look, but it's next gen and better look incredible.
Irishguy95  +   616d ago
We've known about the cell phone since 2011 but ya, they'll show it I guess, I don't care if the game isn't at E3 if they're giving us info and pic etc somewhere else
richierich  +   616d ago
Ok thats understandable but how much longer
Majin-vegeta  +   616d ago
SE at this point are beyond retarded.Don;t they know.Give a damn release date For FF 15 and the Japanese will go and buy it in droves its literally crack for them.Just like shooters are crack for Westerners.
Crossbones  +   616d ago
SE... I don't even know what to say about this.
ArchangelMike  +   616d ago
I know how you feel. I wonder if they can get their act together this gen?
Capt-FuzzyPants  +   616d ago
The sales thing isn't even true. The article says they got their info from a twitter account, which is unofficial.
Chard  +   616d ago
Please be exci-aaaaAAAAAARRRRRGGGHHHH I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE!!!!!
maximus1985  +   616d ago
stay strong chard. lol e3 is right around the corner......then we can freak out!
MegaRay  +   616d ago
So.. if one of the system didnt sell well, would they cancel its ver, or we'll wait till both sell well? Anyway KHIII is understandable but XV? it should've released already :(
Ripsta7th  +   616d ago
Wow really you going to wait for sales instead of making your title move consoles? Cmon Square I thought you guys were more confident than that

kiz2694  +   616d ago
this has just created a thought, do you think game devs are delaying there games so that they sell more due to more consoles being sold? Never really thought of that being a motive.
BluP  +   615d ago
I've been thinking that since all these delays started too.
Crossbones  +   615d ago
Could be, but then again at least 2015 will be awesome.
XXXL  +   616d ago
Another company completely mismanaged and destroyed. Joining the likes of capcom and konami. These 3 used to be my favorites and are pure shit now. I have ZERO faith that square will do right by the series and fans.
dcj0524  +   615d ago
Well.......Final Fantasy XIV:A Realm Reborn and Bravely Default are really fun.

Just sayin.
azure1990  +   616d ago
Ugh I was looking forward to kingdom hearts 3 and final fantasy XV. Is it okay to play kingdom hearts 3 without playing 1 & 2?
DeadlyOreo  +   616d ago
Probably a good idea to play them. I mean, for the story you could just read up on it or watch some videos if you want to get up to speed, but in my opinion you'd be missing out hugely by not playing them, it's such a great series. Unless of course you can't, and that's your point :)
Capt-FuzzyPants  +   616d ago
Do yourself a favor and play all of the Kingdom Hearts games, or at least get caught up on the story, otherwise you will be completely lost.
Snookies12  +   616d ago
Man, if you haven't played the others, pick up a cheap PS3 and get the HD collections. You should definitely play at least 1, Chain of Memories, 2, and Birth by Sleep.
SweatyFlorida  +   616d ago
Yah right, just more excuses to delay the title from releasing. By the end of this year, both consoles will have sold over 15-20 million combined, that's a good enough install base for any multiplatform game to massively succeed. Look at Watchdogs! Over 4 million copies sold and Ubi's fastest selling game!

If they think their new title, no matter how long awaited, is gonna do over 10 million copies just because it's FF, they really don't have a clue. Final Fantasy isn't the same giant franchise is used to be. They're gonna have to work their way back up. The longer they wait, the less relevant they become, which is already pretty pretty bad for them atm.
LostFlock  +   616d ago
Really depending on console sales? They should be depending on whether or not people will buy the game just because a lot of consoles are sold doesn't mean everyones going to buy there game. Its that damn ridicules Square Enix sale expectations.
STK026  +   616d ago
As far as I can tell, there's simply no way Square Enix will make a profit on FFXV, the game has been in development for too long, even if it was on and off at times.

And by releasing it on Xbox One and PS4, they most likely had to make major changes to the game's code, creating new higher resolution assets to make sure the game doesn't look like a last-gen game ported to the new gen. And with the Final Fantasy name not having the credibility and fan approval it once had, this game could very well hurt SE as much as The Spirits Within did to SquareSoft.

Of course, the way they are handling things at the moment is not helping at all.
overrated44  +   616d ago
Dependent on sales? It's not like the PS4 and Xbox One are some of the fastest selling new gaming consoles in history, oh that's right, they are. Square-Enix is ridiculous.
Capt-FuzzyPants  +   616d ago
This is completely fake, the twitter page even says it's unofficial. Gamingbolt just trying to make a story out of nothing. A lot of the info is based on already announced info, but they mix it in with lies and unconfirmed stuff.
mechlord  +   616d ago
So...they didnt think of releasing FF13-3 based on Sales but had the presence of mind to even think of this?
PrinceOfAllSaiyans  +   616d ago
Kingdom Hearts III is the one I'm most excited about. Too bad they both will be skipping E3.
torchic  +   616d ago
"summons that require a team to use since they’re so big"

sounds friggin epic!
LightDiego  +   616d ago
Dependent of PS4 and Xbox One sales?
Looks like Square Enix is more interested on IOS now.
nope111  +   616d ago
PS4 and XBONE already passed 5 million.... How much sales do they need?
Bluebird8  +   616d ago
10m+
Aurora  +   616d ago
That "Yo-Yo" our fan base attitude will bite them.
When it does release (if it does) how many other AAA's will be released at the same time/year to steal some of that thunder? There was a time when this game REALLY stood out in all aspects. It'll be huge no doubt but definitely won't live up to the hype and wait. E3--TGS 2014, Faith in Gamers restored! ^_^"

Haven't they done this with previous Final Fantasys. By the time FFXV comes out PS4/X1 should have both passed 10mil.They must be trying to get it to sell more than FFXIII that pulled off about 7mil.

I hope this is true, and they're already working hard on 16, because I couldn't care less about 15.

THIS IS THE DESCRIPTION OF THE PAGE. THE DESCRIPTION!
kingdom18  +   615d ago
I wonder if it being multiple and having to look at the sales of both systems is more detrimental to the process rather than if it were exclusive... Well that's a whole bunch of depressing as we know this is coming before KH3, if this rumor is true its going to be a long time....
tommygunzII  +   615d ago
If marketed properly this game would sell consoles.
Tzuno  +   615d ago
futuristic final fantasy sucks, no wonder they go down as the years passes. i will gladly play snes and ps1 or ps2 releases of the series than this futuristic crap.
