I almost crapped out. Love to see KH3 informations too.

PS: Give Cissnei some more screen time in your next game.

Fishy Fingers3631d ago (Edited 3631d ago )

Its a games console, designed by Microsoft.

Edit: who ever disagreed, please raise your hand so the class can point and laugh.

Doppy3631d ago

Where are the games for 360????? I guess they showed Microsoft some love at Microsoft's RPG party, so for this event it's all about Sony and Nintendo. I expect to hear release date for both FF 13's.

Maybe FF 13 December 08 - March 09

FF 13 vs. May 09 - November 09

timmyrulz3631d ago

3713, the year Final Fantsy 13 comes out :) Just kidding peeps, it was the 1st thing that sprang to mind, had to type it

kwicksandz3631d ago

made me laugh thats worth a bubble =)

Not only we are hearing more about FF13, and this is the first time we have information on Kingdom Heart 3. Also at the same time, it's a Dead of alive date for PS3...will Squire-Enix go multi-platform on FF13 and KH3?

Fishy Fingers3631d ago (Edited 3631d ago )

I very much doubt FF will be going multiplat, Sony hold a large steak in S-Enix and this is one exclusive they would not let slip through their fingers. It's far to important.

tako20003631d ago

I truly hope so...Sony do hold a fair share of SE stock but I don't know if they had enough to effect company decision. Well, least Last Ramanet and SO4 can be a good head-up. There are still time for Sony to strike deal with SE.

Superfragilistic3631d ago (Edited 3631d ago )

Sony currently hold, as of the end of last financial year, 8.6% of Square Enix stock, compared to Enix founder and honorary chairman Yasuhiro Fukushima 21.3%, and his private company's additional 8.8%, giving him over 30% of the company. Square founder Masafumi Miyamoto owns approximately 7.1%, whilst the remaining 54%+ majority is controlled largely by American and Japanese financial institutions.

Full ownership details here: http://www.square-enix.com/...

In other words Sony does not own a significantly large enough stake of Square Enix to influence day to day operations. If FF remains exclusive it will be purely as a business decision by Square Enix and/or determined by exclusivity rights paid by Sony.

Superfragilistic3631d ago

I'd be mighty surprised if Square took FF multi platform, whilst a business possibility I don't beleive it to be a probable outcome.

After the Star Ocean 4 surprise however, Kingdom Hearts on the other hand may be a different story. It's perhaps telling that there's no information being given at Square Enix's party regarding KH3 for any platform.

mistertwoturbo3631d ago

FFXIII will not go multiplat. Come on, this is Square-Enix we're talking about here. They are the biggest hardware pushers with any console they lay they're fingers on. The PS3 with Blu-Ray and standard HDD = they're biggest challenge yet.

Even if it did, then expect a special edition 5 disc version for the 360.

JVIDICAN3631d ago (Edited 3631d ago )

the kingdom hearts team is working on versus so development on kh3 really wont start untill thats done
