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."

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

Nitrowolf2780d ago (Edited 780d 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.

EXVirtual780d ago

@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.

Panthers780d ago (Edited 780d 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)

Tetsujin780d ago

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.

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!!!

Dark11780d ago

I wonder what will they do if PS4/X1 continue to sell well worldwide but failed in japan.

-Foxtrot780d 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

joab777780d 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.

Magicite780d 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.

rulparra779d 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.

kenshiro100779d ago

Square is pissing me off with their crap.

richierich780d ago (Edited 780d 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

XiSasukeUchiha780d ago

FF15 going to be a amazing masterpiece of art.

ArchangelMike780d 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.

KingKelloggTheWH780d ago

Yeah but it is Nomura's game, if Square hasnt messed with it, it will be good. Nomura just makes great games.

Pug779d ago

I don't hold out much hope for it, the last trailer looked way too hack n slash for my liking.

ScamperCamper779d 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.

Irishguy95780d 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

richierich780d ago

Ok thats understandable but how much longer

Majin-vegeta780d 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.
