FF 7 is likely coming to X1 and Shenmue might be too (though less likely) where's TLG or Horizon in this review? Multiplats don't win E3

Majin-vegeta1243d ago (Edited 1243d ago )

Lol there's no.mention of it coming to X1.

@Sonyslave...Link or stop spreading lies

nX1243d ago

It was actually announced (so early) to increase the momentum of PS4.

"Tetsuya Nomura​: The PC port, honestly, wasn't really on my radar. I thought it was already on sale. Regardless, there's really no relation between the PC version and this remake. Why now? This week at E3 we announced several titles coming to the PS4: not only FFXV, Kingdom Hearts 3, and World of Final Fantasy, but [also] a new Star Ocean and more. Rather than announce the remake after those titles went on sale, we wanted to give gamers something that would make them happy -- open them up, perhaps, to buying into the PS4."

Sony is reportedly helping with development as well so a X1 release is everything but confirmed at this point.

Tedakin1243d ago

There's no mention of Tomb Raider coming to PS4, yet everyone keeps insisting it is.

xHeavYx1243d ago

How about this tweet by PHIL SPENCERS saying that the TR deal is a timed deal?

nX1243d ago

^Technically Tomb Raider was never confirmed for PS4 as well so that's just as true as it's for FF7 on X1. The point is, it boosts the PS4 lineup so it helped Sony win this E3.

Nirvana315911243d ago

Every Final Fantasy game heck every JRPG released on Xbox consoles have bombed so why would SE continue to develop for that platform? Besides notice how literally half of SE's conference this year was about PS4 exclusives so I'd keep my expectations real low for FF7 on Xbox One.

Shenmue is just out of the question since Suzuki himself confirmed he has no plans for an Xbox version not to mention Sony will be helping the development and also financially.

DragonKnight1243d ago

Crystal Dynamics said that exclusivity was never intended. Expect Rise of the Tomb Raider on PS4. FFVII however has the intent of selling PS4s as stated by Nomura himself, it's not coming to Xbox One.

gamer78041243d ago (Edited 1243d ago )

It's pretty much a given that its coming to xbox one, its not going to come to vita or wiiu, so that leaves xbox one. All the journalists have come to the same conclusion given the language sony used.

Also , Shenmue is not limited to ps4 and pc, its just the current objective, if they reach high enough funding they'll look at other platforms according to Sazuki.

Aloren1243d ago (Edited 1243d ago )

@Dragoknight Then why is it "first" on ps4 ?

1243d ago
Shadow Flare1243d ago (Edited 1243d ago )

I was under the impression that Sony own the licensing rights to Final Fantasy VII. Which is why it's existence has never appeared on any other home console. Also why none of its spin offs have appeared on any direct competing consoles. Other then pc and phones. Also why Sony had big involvement in Advent Children.

So in a nutshell, Xbox can suck it, it gets nothing.

PS4 first, Pc later, Xbone never.

Just like the original game released on PlayStation and pc.

Or show me where it says it's coming to the xbone please

nicksetzer11243d ago (Edited 1243d ago )

A game not even in developement yet (that may also come to xb1) and a "timed exclusive" remaster of a game (that also may come to xb1) that is coming in 2017 are the reason sony won?

Where did it say that FFVII is coming to X1?

And if Shenmue is supported financially by Sony then i doubt it will be on X1.

Sonyslave31243d ago (Edited 1243d ago )

The people at Square say so them self that it coming to xbox one after a certain time

Kayant1243d ago (Edited 1243d ago )

"The people at Square say so them self that it coming to xbox one after a certain time" - Link? The amount of BS people can claim without anything to back up on-line is sad.

Not that it's outside of the realm because it's was announced as "first on PS4" not "console exclusive" then again it could also mean first on PS4 later on PC.

"And if Shenmue is supported financially by Sony then i doubt it will be on X1." - It maybe could if their is nothing in the contracts signed has stopping it. The reason it's coming to PS4 is because Sony are and I quote one of the devs - "they will help to finance the PS4 version and will also help for advertisement." -

Otherwise it would probably only come to PC considering the kick stater project.

MasterCornholio1243d ago


Now that's a complete lie

Lennoxb631243d ago (Edited 1243d ago )

If it is going to PC, then it will only take days to weeks for them to port the X1 version. The ease of porting would be too hard to pass up. Although I'm not saying its coming to the X1.

Dewitt1243d ago

They asked Jon Ryan about it in the Gamespot interview and multiple times PR popped in and said We can't comment or just completely dodging the question. So yeah, it is coming to XB1. Honestly, Nintendo and MS should both have this so all gamers can play the title they wanted since 2000.

_-EDMIX-_1243d ago

Agreed. I don't see Shenmue 3 coming to XONE just based on Sega solely. Consider Yakuza has not 360 entry, lol, consider Yakuza many times doesn't even have a damn entry on PS3 IN THE WEST LOL! If Sega is publishing...Sony is fund, its likely not going to end up on the XONE.

If Sega was solely doing this wouldn't end up on the XONE as what Yakuza game did? I Yakuza does great in sales in Japan where PS systems actually sell.

So that is just extremely unlikely when you factor even PS fans in the west don't get Yakuza games, what makes you think XONE will get any or on top Shenmue 3? I mean...if they are not even wasting the money to port their older titles to PS as system that is selling...what makes you think they will port it to a system with a lessor install base, zero to speak of in Japan etc?

That is just so unlikely its not even funny, we are over hear praying for Yakuza Zero to get a western release on PS, yet some folks think Shenmue 3 is coming to XONE? The deep, deep lolz.

FFVII...not likely coming to XONE, as Square already has like 4 games only on PS systems and none of the older FF's got ported to 360 other then XI, mind you...XIV didn't follow suit. I just see that as pretty unlikely.

I FFVII's HD version coming to XONE?

Did FFVII or any of the PS or even NES, SNES version come to 360? Soooo what makes you think this is the one? I mean really folks. Some times you can just call a game a default exclusive even without Sony many times as Square, Sega, Capcom etc many times might make a series only on a certain platform based on where it sells best (cough Japan cough) lol.

Chug1243d ago

Well said edmix, the delusion in this thread and a lot of others is sickening.

slappy5081243d ago

It's likely timed exclusive then To PC just like the original, and same for Shenmue

chuckyj11243d ago

ummm... Tomb Raider is finically supported and published by MS... That doesn't buy 100% exclusivity for a system.

I think a lot of people are going to be let down by Shenmue.... Shenmue really wasn't that great. It was one of the games that led to Sega's demise due to it's bloated budget and lack of sales...

lol, "multiplats don't win E3"
Have you been checked for a superfluity of sodium chloride recently?

Snookies121243d ago

The fact that FF VII and Shenmue 3 were both shown at Sony's conference is how they won E3. It doesn't matter if they go multi-plat, they were still shown at Sony's conference.

As for FF VII we haven't heard any news of X1. All I heard was that it wasn't PS4 exclusive. Which likely means a PC release as well. It could very well come to X1, but we don't know for a fact yet.

Spid3r61243d ago (Edited 1243d ago )

Sony did no win the show...Microsoft BC won the show. Thanks to the news, we will see 100s of titles every month for Xbox one...And I can tell you right now the US will quickly become MS territory once again starting this Holiday. Also MS showed games that are coming by the end of this year...Remember the Order 1886 and Driveclub carrot?

xHeavYx1243d ago

It's sad if the highlight of your show is being able to play 360 games.

Snookies121243d ago (Edited 1243d ago )

@Spid3r6 - You're saying backwards compatibility is a better announcement than two insanely popular games being brought back to life after years and years of fan demand?

_-EDMIX-_1243d ago

"Sony did no win the show"

Lol, when you get so mad you forget English correctly.

"...Microsoft BC won the show" games didn't win the show, a feature did that let you play a limited number of old games which you must already own to play.......the huge lolz.

medman1243d ago (Edited 1243d ago )

Poor thing. The sad xbox only gamers remind me of the infamous words of the guru himself, Don Mattrick ... "fortunately we have a product for people who aren't able to get some form of connectivity, it's called Xbox 360." These poor xbox only folks have been so brow beaten, so thoroughly trounced by what Sony has shown, so despondent over the gaming medias overwhelmingly awarding E3 2015 to Sony, and in a landslide....that they have resorted to believing replaying games they've already played to death is "the future of gaming". Wow. I can play old games anytime I want, it's called owning a ps3 and 360. I think I win.

P.S. if you're so cash strapped that you can't afford a new console without trading in your old one....maybe you have bigger concerns than gaming...maybe you should be spending your money on something else you can actually afford.

Thats not really true. Microsoft highlight was that Xbox 360 games are now multiplatform.

MasterCornholio1243d ago (Edited 1243d ago )

That was a low blow.........

Wow you can be mean.

MightyNoX1243d ago

It's because Sony showed a wide variety of IPs (Shenmue, FF7 etc) ranging from TPS to RPGs to heartwarming games like Unravel.

Nintendo was a no-show

And MS tripled down HARD on the dudebro shooters.

Hence, flawless victory.

Dewitt1243d ago

Uhh MS showed alot of diversity, don't know what conference you were watching and they saved their biggest guns for Gamescom.

MasterCornholio1243d ago

Where's your proof?

I'm sorry but you don't have any.



fermcr1243d ago (Edited 1243d ago )

Contrary to others, I have little interest for FF7, Shenmue 3 or Last Guardian. I live in the present, not the past. Curious about the games, but not really hyped.

There were 3 games at E3 that impressed me (because they were completely unexpected): Cuphead, Horizon: Zero Dawn and Ghost Recon Wildlands.

And there were other games that I was expecting to be good and didn't disappoint: Uncharted 4, Fallout 4, XCOM 2, Just Cause 3, Tomb Raider, among a few others.

tjg591243d ago

Cup head was unexpected? That game was announced a while ago

SlyFoxC1243d ago

FF 7 most likely will. But Shenmue 3 was directly supported by Sony after the Kickstarter was announced. so i doubt that one will.

MRMagoo1231243d ago

I dont think it will I have a feeling its coming to pc and ps4 only (ff7 i mean).

ABizzel11243d ago

FF& coming to XBO is 50/50 at this time. Square flat out side in an interview they're not putting their games on platforms where they won't sell well, or it's not worth the investment, especially their JP games, which is a direct jab at MS, and a jab at Nintendo for the bigger games.

There are a bunch of Final Fantasy games that have skipped Xbox even last gen, and it got to the point that the games weren't even shipped in JP anymore for Xbox. Also every game that's had a remote tie in with FF7 has been PS exclusive or PS and PC.

Which is why I'm guess this game is PS4 / PC, with a slight possibility of XBO. What will determine that is if FF15 sells well enough on XBO. FF7 HD remaster is already coming to PS4 and PC, and it would make sense to have this full remake come to those platforms as well.

And with XBO not even selling 1000 consoles in JP each week it's getting less and less likely, and JP support is drying up, outside of games published and funded by MS, which this obviously isn't.

ManOfTheYear11243d ago


FF7 is multiplat coming to XB1
Shenmue isn't even in development and Sony withheld info about its kickstarter.
TLG is still up in the air if it will wver be released.

The only sure PS4 exclusives shown, yet not released till later years was Horizon and Uncharted.

Everything else was just multiplats.

People who claim Sony won E3 are just basing it on nostalgic emotions while those who think MS won are using logic and rational thinking. MS was filled with exclusives and that are actually launching THIS YEAR!!!

Clearly beyond a reasonable doubt MS steamrolled over Sony.

LoneWolf1811243d ago

FFX is almost certainly a timed exclusive due to many different web sites posting similar interviews such as the one here:


Whether it will come to X1 is pretty much just guessing Just as it is with Tomb Raider and PS4.

Shenmue 3 on the other hand will most likely not come to X1. I would say I'm about 95% sure about that one since it appeared in Sony's conference and the developer has said that there isn't any plans for an X1 version. Although I do wonder how much Sony is actually involved with the development of the game or if they're even funding it at all. Seems weird that it would be on kickstarter so I'm not even sure if Sony has anything to do with the project at all. They could just be giving it some spot light because they see potential and/or they want to build a good relationship with the developer.

Blaze9291243d ago

So y'all refuse to believe "play it first on PS4" means FF7 will also come to Xbox One - but STRONGLY believe Rise of the Tomb Raider is coming to PS4. Yeah, okay lol.

What you think, it's coming to the Wii U or handhelds? And if PC, obviously it'll hit Xbox One.

Jaqen_Hghar1243d ago

Tomb Raider has been confirmed timed exclusive. If it comes later on PC (like other Final Fantasy games) then that's what they most likely mean when they say "first on PS4"

Azzanation1243d ago (Edited 1243d ago )

I agree 100%. How can you win E3 if your showing off the same games that everyone else will be playing. This is why I never understood the COD games for Xbox. Everyone can play them yet I am not sure why its considered ammunition. The winners are the games that are only available on that console.

FF7 and Shenmue 3 are defiantly coming to PC and they have a high chance to cross to XB1 as well. The games that would have won it for Sony are Horizon and Uncharted 4 but I personally don't think that was enough.

Tomb Raider is also a timed yet everyone seems to think its definitely coming to PS4, FF7 and Shenmue 3 are no different. Plus these games aren't out for years, X1 showed games we will be playing in 2015. Sony did have a better show but they did not win 2015.

brewin1243d ago

Better surpirses, yes. Better show? MS brought some pretty compelling software stuff, but nothing really super surprising. FF7 and Shenmue 3 take the cake for best e3 surprise announcements for sure. But the fact that most of what MS showed is out THIS YEAR is what does it for me. Its almost too much and Ill probably just end up playing fallout until Xenoblade X comes out in December for wii U.

Jaqen_Hghar1243d ago

All they said was "first on PS4". That means later on PC most likely

Shenmue is only coming to PC and PS4 that is confirmed.

BG115791243d ago (Edited 1243d ago )

Let's say, they are coming to Xbone the same way as Tomb Raider is coming to PS4...

Ikki_Phoenix1243d ago


both ps4-pc

why should they bother for an x1 version lol...13-14 mil gap
ps4 is the cash

Blaze9291243d ago

Explain Kingdom Hearts 3 then...

Ikki_Phoenix1242d ago

Explain Kingdom Hearts 3 then...

like KH 3 will sell on the x1 98% sales will be for the ps4

rainslacker1243d ago (Edited 1243d ago )

As a Sony fan, I'm at the point I'm willing to just say it will be a timed exclusive, and eventually come to the X1 just so we can stop having this topic coming up in EVERY SINGLE FFVII:R and Shenmue 3 article.

Ever hear of the term "broken record"? It's well past that, and it's been less than a week.

Does it going to another console lessen the weight of the announcement? If not, then the entire point of console exclusivity is off topic, and should be marked as much.

If Xbox fans want it to come to the X1, then petition SE. Stop trying to convince yourself and others in a vain attempt to downplay the significance of the announcements.

But to answer your question, yes, multiplats being shown at conferences can win E3's. I recall when MS "Won" E3 when they announced that FFXIII was going multi-plat.

GordonKnight1243d ago

I'm purchasing both games, but only wish I could make those purchases on my Wii U, because of the gamepad. Now I'll just wait and see if they will come to X1. These games should be released on all three consoles. IMO

TheXgamerLive1242d ago (Edited 1242d ago )

at one point there was talk of Shenmue being Xbox One exclusive so I think it will def come to the XB1. FF7 this will also come as theirs to much talk of it.
Me personally, I could care less for both of these. So this means nothing to me but I know so many do care.


what do you mean? they've been talking about this like crazy. Rumors mind you but to much to be a coincidence I feel.

They can start by showing us some gameplay next e3.


Its not like they will be the only games at Sonys conference.




Those games are not vaporware and you know it.

DragonKnight1243d ago

FFVII remake was in development before FFVII PC Port to PS4 was announced. Years in actuality is likely to be 2 years so who cares.

Are you saying that BC won?

Software_Lover1243d ago

No. Microsoft was not in my thought process. Microsoft didn't win either.

DragonKnight1243d ago

I know you're going to say "gamers won" but just in case you're thinking it, there's no way that Nintendo won. Nintendo tanked hard. Bethesda didn't win either. They announced Fallout 4 before E3. EA tanked almost as bad as Nintendo, and Ubisoft had Aisha Tyler which is an instant loss.

ManOfTheYear11243d ago

BC, more ecxlusives shown and actual exclusive titles coming out in 2015.
Hololens + minecraft was amazing

I laugh so hard when someone says Aony won.

A kickstarter and a remake that might as well have been vaporware right now, wins E3?

Smoke and mirrors wins E3 now?

No wonder people thought Nintendo was terrible. All they did was show games with actual release dates

DragonKnight1243d ago

So you'd rather formulaic B.S. and BC win as opposed to gamers getting what they asked for?

RPGrinder1243d ago

You mean like an uncharted that looks like every other uncharted? Another COD that looks like every other one? Sony handled that for us too.

Sony was not the only company who gave gamers what they wanted. They actually gave gamers what they wanted with release dates and gameplay

DragonKnight1243d ago

Is that all you got? A slag against one first party title and a 3rd party title you'd probably be praising if it were still on your precious?

That opposed to the same 4 games every single year, a third party title that looks the same as the one that released the year before (Rise of the Tomb Raider), and backwards compatibility coming in 2 years into the console's life and is restricted?

Such a huge victory.

emilijo7771243d ago

No, Star Fox which looks like PS2 game wins E3. But what would you expect from Wii U. It's generation behind PS4 and Xbox One.
