MSI has issued a press release about its presence at this year’s Computex, and revealed that Final Fantasy Type-0 will be coming to the PC (and will be showcased running on its new laptops at COMPUTEX).
Damn, one less reason to move onto current-gen consoles. But really, I am making list of games I want to play on PS4 (when I get one), once Im finished with my PS3 backlog, and list just grew shorter - obviously gonna play this on PC.
Man PC has never been better than lately and it will keep climbing, the technology is to damn good to ignore.
Wonder if they learned from FFXIII and FFXIII-2.
If they are going to be showing it off live, and on laptop hardware no less, hopefully that means they have confidence that the port is a solid job this time around. It should be as it would be using a PS4 base, which is very similar to the PC. And I certainly hope they have. I can't believe how bad FFXIII-2's port job is.
when is this conference exactly?
That's a pretty solid deduction. Still a bit worried about how much effort would be put into it. I would love to be able to downsample it from 4k to 1080p ( since it's a laptop showcase ) on my pretty decent rig. And in my experience, FFXIII-2 performed better playable wise. FFXIII had that annoying micro stutter even with controller whereas the other had weird frame locks and dips.
I hope so. 13 was a so-so port, but 13-2 was even worse. Couldnt finish the latter because gameplay, albeit playable, was not visually enjoyable.
it's a matter of time before they announce FFXV PC version
Only if it is successful. Even then it might still take a while.
TBH I think the wait is more of a formality than anything else. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to see FFXV launch simultaneously with the the console versions. Heck, it might well be that an Episode Duscae demo has been in the works for the PC this whole time and SE are simply waiting for AMD's PC event at E3 to announce it. Clearly the FF series has been sucessful on PC, otherwise we wouldn't see The After Years or be hearing of things like this. And hey, this is the same company that's willing to confirm KH3/FFXV for the Xbone, so multi-platform releases on the PC seem like a no brainer. Maybe I'm just being overly hopeful here though. After all, sometimes these companies do things that defy belief.
@Articuno76 It would certainly be a first, for a mainline FF (excluding XI and XIV) to simultaniously come to the PC. Highly unlikely if you ask me. However, I do not dispute the fact that it will come to the PC eventually. Maybe after a year or so. Of course I hope that I'm wrong. The more people that can enjoy this title the better.
The FF XV demo is a marketing deal , you will never see it without FF Type 0 HD even if SE wanted .
Might as well announce FFXV for PC.
Agreed I'm actually excited for FF 15, I loved Crisis Core.
Everything BUT Vita, eh? Even PSP.
I actually came into this article just to say EXACTLY that, you beat me to it lol
This game wasn't that great in my opinion. And that motion blur was vomit inducing.
Yeah, terrible story as well.
I will start again when they patch it...until then...no thanks
I doubt they'll patch it.
Hopefully you can turn off Motion Blur in the PC version. If not, then mods will do it.
Did 2 playthroughs on PS4, it was ok. Nothing great, but story wise you could feel it was a Final Fantasy brand. What was also visible was that it was a PSP port, so yeah. If you really want something with a touch of Japanese on PC, go for it, otherwise there are better games.
How could you with that horrible blur while turning the camera around
Maybe editing a config or applying a mod could get around that, who knows if someone is willing to fix the camera.
I understand that the game really requires more than one play through to get the "full" experience, but I don't think I can bring myself to play it again. I've deleted the game install from my HDD for the moment, but I'll keep my copy of the game in case I want to go back to it at a later date.
The full experience is merely alternate story missions throughout 8 or so chapters. 1 playthrough was pretty much enough for me, and it got me the platinum as well. The alternate playthrough can be rushed, especially that your levels and equipment carry over from your first game. And the small quirks here and there are quite nice.
I bet this game could run just as fine on a damn tablet, is not demanding at all. Hell I think the PS3 can ran it at full HD /60 fps
Now we need ff9 and tatics.
LOL! Emulator is the answer for you.
No more reason to get a console if SE is bringing everything to PC .
Final Fantasy Type-0 would look great on PC if only it wasn't a blown-up handheld. A shame it was a remake from the ground up, because it has a downright gorgeous art design.
All that's left is to do a Vita version
This pretty much confirms for XV PC. Might rven mean KH3 for PC if square keeps putting games on PC. My reasons for getting a PS4 are dwindleing. Sony step up your exclusive game. I'm not spending 400$ on a bloodborne/uncharted Machine.
KH 3 will never be on PC , FF XV surly but not year 1 .
Happy days! You know the PC is doing well when the Japanese are starting to market more heavily towards it.
How did this get approved, someone used an 'o' instead of a '0'(zero)...
If there's a way to turn off the motion blur in the options menu or config file, I'll be happy.
