Despite a slew of reports "confirming" Final Fantasy XIII for Windows in the past 24 hours, Square Enix has told VG247 this morning that nothing of the sort is planned.
DAMN IT GET A GRIP SQUARE!
Don't call them Square. Squaresoft is gone. They haven't been themselves for a looooong time, ever since they merged with Enix. And now to make it worse, they become the next Capcom by selling out.
Bombibomb just stop bro(Nasim). They haven't sold out haha. They don't owe Sony anything. Just becasue PS3 sucks and has absolutely ZERO 3rd party support or even JRPG support and you, like all moron PS3 fanboys, continue playing that crappy console with nothing going good for it. Square Enix is doing whats right. Taking the games to the console that sales games and has all the good games....it's not, nor will ever be the PS3. Unfortuantely. It's not 2001 anymore. Xbox 360 is leading this generation and has been for the past 3 years(the reason PS3 has no games and 98% of games that are on PS3, run better on the XBox 360...quite a bit better, also.) Tissue?? If you choose to play the PS3 then play it and stop whining!!! You know it has no games or developer support! It's not Square Enix's problem... Sony released the 600$ console thats hard to develop for(hello??? This is dumb!!) and first and foremost sold you(and me) a Blu Ray player!! PS3 fanboys stop whining and trying to constantly make up for how bad the PS3 sucks! It will always be far behind the Xbox 360 as a gaming machine! Realize it now and shut up! : )
..microsoft would have won double: the 360 AND pc version.
I read somewhere they sold a bunch of consoles too.
you can't never trust SE no more! for me, this is merely a marketing strategy! FFXIII is currently being develop using Crystal Tool on PC and you really believe they won't release it there? they just want people to buy it on consoles where the sales really are these days first and will announce PC version maybe with some extra sometimes later down the road! what was the reason FFXIII went to multiplat again? right, MONEY! so, trust me, they will release it on PC!
MS already owns the PC market, they're not going to expand further by FF13. It might prevent a few 360 sales though.
Here I was thinking they were going to take full advantage of the PS3 hardware + Blu-ray but Square-Enix just continues to disappoint me over and over again. Sony should secure Versus XIII, which looks amazing and different, but knowing them I don't think they care anymore about any of their 3rd party exclusives (with the exception of MGS4). Square-Enix can rot for all I care. Sony made them what they are today and in return they sell out? LOL! Level-5 > Square-Enix anyway. I miss Squaresoft.
You've got to see where SE is coming from. On the PS2, they had over 140 million potential customers and as it stands now, even releasing on both the PS3 and 360 they only have a combined total of around 25 million potential customers. They've got to make a profit too =)
over 140 million potential customers? Not when FFX was released they didn't, not even with FFXII. They've always been one of the developers that help playstation do those numbers with their must have games, I don't buy that excuse of theirs for a second.
somehow your avatar pic suits u bombibomb...he was a nutt too
Sony has sold nearly 140 million PS2s...which is amazing =)
Square goes where the money is. I dont think you where up in arms when they "betrayed" nintendo during the 64 era. The money is just with 360 this gen.
I never understood how some people can screw with one interview so hard that everybody reports something different. All that was said about a PC and FFXIII is, that it is developed via the Crytsal Tools ON the PC. That's it. No one talked about a PC version.
Good thing I got a 360 though.
Yes of course enjoy the port that hasn't even gone into development yet. =)
It does not seem to be a straight port...read interview with Kitase and Gamespy. Interview: "The order of development is that first we will develop FF13 for the PS3 and make it specific to that hardware to try to accommodate all the functionality offered by it and then, after the PS3 version is complete, we are going to develop the Xbox 360 version." As for the delay in the PS3 version: Interview with 1Up and Shinji Hasjimoto: "1UP: Will the development of FFXIII for Xbox 360 result in a delay for the PS3 version in Japan? Shinji Hashimoto: No, the development of a 360 version won't necessarily affect the PS3 version, purely because the PS3 game will be completed first. That's been in development for some time and is still on schedule. And, really, since we haven't ever announced any sort of release date...then it couldn't really be "delayed," right?" Also, does it not seem to convenient that they took developers away from Versus in order to dev on XIII? SE saw this one coming a mile away and they have probably been working on both platforms in order to reduce the split in release time for both platforms.
lol they're both being built from PC code. Yes they are PS3 fanboys and I will own you right now and show straight from SE mouth. Both are being built from PC code. LOL You wish the Xbox 360 version was a port from the PS3 version. It's not. Don't lie. I'll prove you wrong.
@M4verick,Stop running around and start arguments with people.You are acting like some sort of console police so quit your trolling and mind your own damn business
You mind your fuking buisness bro. The 360 version isn't a port, like it or not. PS3 fuking sucks and has lost everything. Get over it.
either way almost no one would have the pc requirements lol... imagine what you would need !:|
I don't think the requirements would be too crazy. The required specs for console/PC games like DMC4, Gears of War, Ass Creed, and Bioshock aren't that bad.
the graphics totally look better than crysis(IMO) and crysis requires a good computer
There's been no ingame graphics though, it's all CGI.
yet another sign that square A. square doesnt know what they are doing. B. lying their azz off. cause they said they want to maximize profit. its being developed on a pc, so conversion to playable on pc should be cheap as well as to produce and ship. also they said they are going the route of non exclusive (although there is a timed exclusive on last remnant and a currently full exclusive on star ocean) .. your still console exclusive, back to original point.. you need to give the pc some love to help maximize that profit. if your going to sell out, sell out all the way. i can only think of two possible reasons for not going pc with ffxiii series. 1. they dont like the idea of mods and/or piracy (although on the 360 it will be one of the highest pirated games) 2. maybe they are holding out for microsoft to cut them a check for windows live access...
One day FFXIII is exclusive the next week it is multiplatform. I wont be too surprised if they come out with a PC version.
I tried playing FFVIII on the PC once, it felt really weird. It'll probably come out for PC a year or so down the line, thats what they did with VIII right?
Final Fantasy under-preforms on the PC. Period. I have not seen nor played any good one on PC aside from VIII. I'd rather own it on console, since it is going to be fully optimized for it.
The worst thing about this is not the fact that Xbox 360 gets a port, it's the fact that we won't see a new IP or certain "remake" for longer still, because we have to wait for the 360 version. At least I am thinking so. I still don't have all the facts straight because of the massive amounts of confusing rumors.
Since Final Fantasy ports to PC lower the quality of the games themselves, i cant say im disappointed.
I prefered if Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy XIII Versus both arrived on the PS3 exclusively but the 360 would get its own Final Fantasy game.That way,360 and PS3 would compete over who got the better Final Fantasy.That Final Fantasy XIII Hearesis title has'nt been mentioned in 2 years so that could have been the FF game for them.
oh, it's not? oh well
"no CURRENT plan...." apparently worth as much as "only on PS3" ;)
"sharing our product with the widest possible audience:?
Dont think PC needs an FF title. We got real RPGs. Not Railadventures... Dragon age next year!
I said before, all games are developed on PC first, then put on console later in development. People got confused and thought this meant it was going on PC.
