Mike from Twinfinite writes, "It is exciting to see Square Enix keep pushing the visual envelope, but consoles can only really go so far and what they need is the superior processing power and graphical capabilities of the PC to facilitate that."
Yeh push the graphics more , I mean who cares how boring and bad the game plays. How many ppl where really wanting this on pc, I am a huuuuge final fantasy fan , I even named my daughter Rinoa and I didn't even want these on console. I have every appendage crossed in hopes 15 is a game fitting for the final fantasy name.
Well FF games are classics, what platform to preserve them on. Its retarded being at the mercy of corporations to charge you again and again for BC. You can play just about every FF released on PC even today. Hence FF13 coming to PC is perfect.
FF needs a multimillion jrpg fanbase which as of now the pc does not have.period far as his stupid reason goes, everything needs better graphics, lets run it on super computers where 3 scientist can enjoy it in 8k 240 fps and screw rest of the world "You can play just about every FF released on PC even today" does that perfect sense include the emulated games that square never bothered to make on pc? because pc can get every single series that way, also by your logic , mobiles have an even better chance to get ff15 since they have 1-6 officially and will soon have all others via streaming, and the number of mobiles stomp the number of gaming pc's dead . stupid logic is stupid
Buying a copy of the game through Steam is 'still' putting yourself at the mercy of corporations, regardless of what you have deluded yourself into believing. A DRM-riddled copy of FFXIII that only runs on a closed-source OS does not equal preservation. Hence your point based on that logic is invalid.
decrypt -" Well FF games are classics, what platform to preserve them on. " Exactly, PC has become a great source for it. and to say the least i owned Final fantasy VII originally on plastation. when i saw FFVII's PC box i was like "no way!", It didn't bother me. In fact i told a friend who had a PC to get it, just to see what was it like out of curiosity. The effect it had on me was the opposite compared to like how i saw Sonic on a Nintendo console. I was very saddened. The reason being was because they make consoles and they're first party all the way. I had no concept it was ever going to happen. Squaresoft on the other hand i knew made games on multiple platforms, when they first started. their first game ever made was for PC back in 1984.
What's retarded is believing that console gamers are at the mercy of corporations for BC. Just because a company re-releases a games doesnt mean consoles gamers mindless run out and re-buy it. The ones that buy the game most likely never had it the previous gen.Plus corporation pull that shit on PC too. FF7 was re-released on PC so was Metro and Sleeping Dogs is being re-released on PC. You must be starving for a FF game if you think FF13 coming to PC is perfect. They basically left out everything that made FF games great. The made a game with a linear map no exploration and level cap you before you get to a boss. That game isn't perfect on any platform.
"Who cares how boring and bad game plays" Reviews, sales, and fans say differently not to mention game flying to the top of charts.... Yeah such a horrible game /s Hope you realize the 13,hate train died years ago
You ever thought maybe he legitimately doesn't like the game? Because god forbid someone dislikes a game.
@Darkwatchman Its fine if HE doesn't like the game but like most haters they force their opinion on everyone as of its a fact. While HE found the story bad and the gameplay bad, majority found the game fun and enjoyable.
"While HE found the story bad and the gameplay bad, majority found the game fun and enjoyable." Now you are forcing "majority opinion" on someone else. You are mimicking something you don't like. My favorite FF game is 8 and a lot of people don't like it for whatever reason ( plot holes, characters and such ) ,but I'm not gonna be hating on them. For them it's a legitimate reason to dislike it and I'll just enjoy playing it for my own reasons. Even if only 1 review gave it a +6 out of 10, I'll enjoy just as much. Don't be a blind fanboy.
@Summons..I sure did.
Sales were terrible for FF13. The entire trilogy sold 11 millions. Three games together barely sold as much as the previous entries, which were only one game.
@DarkZane Final Fantasy 13 (not including the spin offs) over 7 million copies. That puts it fourth all time among every FF game. Yeah...so terrible.
@Summons75 Exactly. People do this a lot and it makes no sense. When I don't like a game I basically forget about it and I don't spend time going to articles about it just to bash it. The other strong tendency among certain gamers is that if a game isn't amazing it is automatically "horrible" or "crap". It's just such immature exaggeration and negative bandwagoning. If reviews and user scores support such a statement as "the majority seem to have liked it" then that is something supported by evidence, something very near a fact. It's completely different when somebody says "this game is complete garbage"...that is just being overly negative and basically acting like your opinion is a fact.
You can emulate FF1-12 on PC and now even buy official versions of FF13 and 14 for PC. Great! Lets just hope FF15 comes here too.
Consoles are its home, end of. Ffxiii coming to PC is no big deal, even ps1 gen games in the franchise came to PC lol. Its going to be fun to see the mods though.
Can you play any of the old FF's without retorting to multiple old boxes? naa you cant. Just better to have the collection on PC where you can hold on to it for a very long time.
What you view as just "multiple old boxes" I consider platforms that allowed me complete control over the access to my purchases, completely independent from both the publishers and vendors, which is something that cannot be said about any of my Steam purchases.
Give me my original boxed ps1 or 2 collection any day! PC is worth it for the mods for me, but collection? Lol, you can argue PC backwards compatibility forever with games all you like.... original console games, to me, are best in a collection in their true format. PC was always a novelty for me, a way to messvwith the files and have fun with it away from playing the game itself.
With the exception of XI and XII you can play them all on the vita. XIII will be playable via PS Now and XVI can be streamed from the ps4. And I'm guessing SE has Ps3/vita remake of XII in the works.
Yeah bro. Whatever you say. Keep believing that PC is it's perfect place.
The garbage can is the perfect home for FF13.
Lol. Port beggers for 15 are crawling out already too.
To each is own... Twinfinite shooting for hits, so many clickbait articles on N4G by them alone...
Going far back as a kid, Final Fantasy's original home always was Nintendo. But like how that changed in 1997, times are once again changing now, i say all platforms.
Lol, the day a main final fantasy title is released side by side on all platforms within 3-4 months, Maximum of day one release, then you can say that! Ff13 is basically just being released for one last outing, on PC. Its nothing ground breaking... Ff7,8,9 all had official releases way back in the ps1 gen. This was never a true exclusive game to begin with. Well, after its switch from ps3 to multi.
Who cares what you prefer to play it on. Nothing wrong with having multiple consoles to play something. I don't see why you would want to play the older games hundreds of times but to each there own. If you think having all of them on PC is some how preserving the game well whatever you feel is best go for it.
If it isn't Nintendo or PlayStation, then FF is not at home.
Correction, Ever since Hironobu left, final fantasy hasn't been at home. it's his creation not Sony's, Nintendo's or Microsoft's.
It was his idea, but it took a collective of people to bring that idea to life. As far as i'm concerned FF is not solely his.
every game on consoles could be the perfect home for PCs, maybe not that much on the 90-2000 since controllers weren't that popular for PC games. But now PC gaming is getting as strong as console gaming, since lots of console games are coming to PC, for example that Naruto game. PC gamers should be grateful for consoles since more console games are coming to PC, this will make the PC game community to gather such attention it will make developers make better efforts to release PC games in optimal condition.
If Crystal Tools and Luminous Engine weren't such absolute steaming hot mess, and SE have used third-party engines from the start, maybe, just maybe, they would have had an easier time making these games. That, and a tighter, stricter, and more focused management. Combine these, and the FFXIII trilogy could have just been 1 game, FFXIV maybe wouldn't have started out as a huge flop, and FFXV might have actually been the PS3's swan song, and we would have waiting for FFXVI now. But this is the bad future. Serah and Noel messed up the past, thus creating this alternate world, where Square said HD towns were too hard.
I think Lost Odyssey would have been more fitting, but whatever.
I want all the FF on PC because the platform is timeless and go no where. IMO it is a great platform to play older games at one place.
That's how I feel too. I have all the Deus Ex games in one place, all The Witcher games in one place, all the Splinter Cell games, all the Tomb Raider games, etc. So many of my favorite series can be enjoyed in their entirety on one platform. It's great. I'm never going to keep a bunch of consoles hooked up to my tv and most of the time they break or I sell them off to get the new consoles anyway. Instead I can have a single system hooked to my display that plays games going back several decades. I love the backwards compatibility the PC offers.
Pc fanboys always think the pc is the only place for anything. Whatever. Have fun waiting for 6 years.for the whole trilogy to come out.
I was a console-only player before, but these days I* use my PC more oftenin gaming, entertainment and whatnot. So when I heard the FF13 is coming to PC, I was shocked and felt grateful because SE made the right decision in supporting PC community. Thank you very much SE, I hope that FF15 will be ported to PC as well asap.
Here is one reason, dirty dirty mods that are NSFW.
