New HD screens from Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy Versus XIII.
I want the demo. Now.
FF13 looks GREAT, FF13V looks GREAT. FF13V interests me more, being a more mature setting. Can`t wait to play them both. I can`t help but wonder how many disc FF13 is going to be on for 360.
Just couldnt resist taking a shot could ya. Both games look good, and im sure will sell on brand name alone regardless of quality. Plenty of screens keep coming out but no game play footage is a little troubling.
like me, I never played any previous FF before because of the turn-based system - just not my cup of tea! I'm a rush & slash kinda gamer and turn-based RPGs really turned me OFF completely! but, for what I am, I played Kingdom Hearts 1&2 and I totally love it! FFXIII will be trn-based right? and I heard that FFvsXIII is going to be like kingdom hearts, so the option is obvious for me! but seriously, when will it be before we can get our hands on these games? in a year? 2 years? I'm tired of waiting!
I'm getting both.
Those are breathtaking. Squenix still has it in them.
i was interested on FFXIII until it became multiplat but that FFvXIII it's starting to look better and better. FFXIII looks like a Star Wars game or movie...
If Final Fantasy XIII Demo is 2 hours long...then the full game on X Box 360 will take atleast 4 discs maybe 5+. Personally, I don't like disc switching, especially when I'm doing speedruns on games. >_O
you guys should cut the carp about the # discs already. it's only people that don't have 360s that complain about these stuff. Seriously how lazy can you be to be bothered by disc changing!? and it's not like you'll have to change disc every 10mins so pls, enough already.
The full FF13 experience, only on PS3. Unless M$ will try to bribe again.
Hahahaha I guess your right
The full FF13 experience, on Sony platforms. Don't forget Agito on PSP, ya know!
Being SE they wont show you the Lesser versions ie Xbox 2's. why show the lesser inferior Version? You dont send the ugly kid to the Beauty show. And Those Pics ARE Killer!! but i still want FFMMO more...
because there is no inferior version at the moment. First superior and after that comes the inferior.
this is gonna look absalutely amazing on xbox
I feel bad for you
Seriously, I just lost 2 bubbles, and got this comment "modded" for what? All I said was LO was on 4 discs and FF13 would probaly end up on 6, that`s realistic. Please don`t "mod" that comment, cause that would be ridiculous. It`s NOT my fault the 360 decided to use DVDs.
No, the dvd's are not your fault. But its becuase of people like you and 360 man here who post unnecessary and obvious flame-comments that this site is becoming the go to place for fanboys. A quick look at your comment history is proof enough. OT: They both look amazing and I look forward to playing them both, mostly vs.
That looks awesome! Hopefully the Japanese will buy more PS3s because of this game.
Im gettin em both lookin forward for ff13 versus more thou
Metal Gear Solid 4, and Gears of war 2, Move over. There's two New Kings. They weren't kidding about Crystal Tools coming close to CGI in real time.
No sh!t. Unreal.
I'm not so sure about that. Heavy Rain is pretty close to this, if not tied dead on, but I think it's more to do with their respective art styles.
maybe not from a Technical Aspect, But an Artistic one. You know what kind of epic environments you could expect from a Square Enix world.
Not sure about that, I`d say their pretty close. Versus I think looks a bit better, than 13.
I suppose, it mostly comes down to art style preference though. Now for the million dollar question: Which art style do you think is better? 13, or VS? I'm digging the darker look of VS at the moment, but having said that, 13 is pretty fine as well. EDIT: @HighDefinition: What art style is more appealing to you? Versus, or 13? And why? EDIT2: Like I said, Versus is more appealing to my eyes. It's difficult to say which of the 3 games being discussed(HR, VS, and 13) looks the best because one is going for semi-photorealism(HR) and is almost succeeding, whereas the Final Fantasy games are going for a more stylized Anime-ish look. Neither is better or worse, it just depends on what you like more. FF will most certainly have more exciting environments than Heavy Rain though.
I agree, that`s what I was trying to say. EDit: Like I said before Versus for me, being a more mature/darker setting.
I am a huge Squenix fan But Heavy Rain simply looks better than any game sorry there @Chubear No one will kill u champ cuz thats the truth FF13 vs looks a big better than FF13. BUT Heavy Rain easily tops it
Killzone 2 looks better in terms of graphics. Heavy Rain tops it from the Character models.
with it's Art Style and aspired Game play. Versus XIII will be what Final Fantasy games would be like Nomura designed them. I personally prefer Nomura to Kitase.
Nah, Heavenly Rain is much better than this graphically. Hey don't kill me, I'm just stating what I see with my own eyes. FF has an art style to it but that doesn't necessarily make it better. However, come on, it's still in the top tier of anything we've seen for gaming this gen and I've yet to see anything close to that on other consoles too. This game's going to definitely be 4-5 discs on the 360 or it'll have a lot of chunks taken out.
Im still sh**ing in my pants at how good both games look...
The games look great..but I think the skin in FFXIII shines a little too much...Maybe just me..but thats my opinion.
This looks AMAZING! I needs to get me an HD TV.
Yes, you do. Boxing day will be the day to it, if not earlier. :)
i want in game screens, not cut scene screens
They aren't prerendered if that's what you mean. I guess we could call them ingame cutscenes.
looks f*cking awesome. but why do those two hos look like yuna and rikku? can't come up with more character designs? pitiful. and the emo version is just gay. not into that.
i guess you prefer pink, blue, green and the other colors associated with the power ranger game known as halo. :)
power ranger colors? you're a dumbass. masterchief is gold. the red and blue only appears so you can differentiate the two teams in multiplayer, and that's only during the team modes. I feel bad for someone who would prefer a black and white motion blur tech demo to Halo. typical moron droid. try again.
waiting for the story to be approved. both games are looking fantastic, and both will be in my library, as well as Agito XIII on my PSP. the fact that the game is being developed on the PS3 should ease a lot of the upset PS3 fanboys concerns about the quality of the title. i don't know anything about the 360 version, and as of this moment, the title doesn't exist as anything more than a name for MS, so i can't make any statements about how it's going to look on the 360 in the end, or how Square-Enix is going to work within the 360's limitations to get FFXIII to the quality they need it to be. it was designed originally with the Cell/RSX, and Blu Ray in mind (there was an article i read ages ago, maybe on ign, where they said that originally, FFXIII was supposed to be another PS2 game, but after seeing that FFVII tech demo for the PS3 ages ago, they started over from scratch and began to design it for the PS3 instead), and it's generally easier to build on PS3 first, then port to 360, so i'm sure both games will be quality, but there's no denying that the lack of standard HDD, and larger capacity disc on the 360 is a hurdle they will spend quite a bit of development time trying to overcome. i'm excited about both, but the darker tone in Versus has me intrigued. i mean, i kind of know what to expect from FFXIII proper, and i'm imagining something along the lines of FFXII, but Versus is a mystery to me, and i like the somewhat modern setting of the game also. there aren't enough RPGs set in the modern world. either they are balls out fantasy, or overly futuristic. i like the Parasite Eves of RPGS. where they take place in a contemporary time, though not quite the same world we live in.
Versus has me curious as well. I'm wondering what Square-Enix is going to do with the FF13/VS/Agito compilation. Maybe they can have a situation where say, in FF13 they reference a War of the Crystals or something(something that happened thousands of years before and is only a legend) and a heroic figure named Bob(or some other obviously heroic name:P), and in Versus or Agito you play through that "legend" yourself, as Bob. Just baseless speculation on my part, but it would be quite impressive if they did something similar.
I agree, we need some modern world RPGs. I miss FFVIII.......one of my fav RPG and that was as modern as FF ever got
is it me or graphic got a downgrade on ff13? still looks gorgeous tho, love the other girls design. ff versus looks graphically superior tho but still its not bout graphics right lol? i just wanted to state my opinion was all ;p cant wait for these games
one's a dark looking game ..the other one is not ..thats about it ..i don't think versus looks better neither does FFXIII both look about the same ..but with different art direction and style settings
but versus look just like cgi while 13 is far behind(dont get me wrong it look cool too ), i think we all know y (we are looking at the pretty uncompress version,i dont even want to imagine how the ultra compress,ultra gimped version is gonna look like).
After looking at the HD pictures I can finally believe they are from in game. The scans from before were too smooth due to bluriness, but now I can see some polygon edges, and I'll have to say they are very close to CGI. I think after this game we will have higher standards for PS3 graphics and we will not be impressed by any other game for a long time. Heavy Rain better come out before final fantasy otherwise their graphics will just be so-so...
but we don't play still images, we play moving images. i can't make any declarations about FFXIII, but i know Heavy Rain will use motion capped animations, so already, the characters will be very believable. i was playing Indigo Prophecy again the other day, and in the scene where Lucas is in the park, there are some kids running around and playing in the snow. even for a last gen game with mediocre visuals, their animations were incredibly lifelike. couple that lifelike animation with more realistic character models, and you have a very potent combination. FFXIII may very well use motion-capped actors as well, but the art styles of the two games are too different to outright compare. FFXIII looks like a CG anime. Heavy Rain looks like a CG real world movie. i agree though, that the standard for graphics on the PS3 will be higher. hell, they've already been raised when games like Ratchet and Clank Future, Uncharted, and Metal Gear Solid 4 released, to name only a few. third parties need to really get on the ball to compete with some of the balls out developed titles. this is ultimately good for PS3 gamers, if that bar is raised, and developers rise to meet that challenge.
Disc number 7 out of 20 of FFXIII on my 360... (before I grow tired and decide to play it on PS3 instead)
i wonder if they started working on the 360 version yet.
maybe the game will come in the form of a XBOX hd. All capacity problem solved!
that they won't begin development on the 360 FFXIII until the Japanese PS3 version is complete and released, then it will be concurrently developed alongside the PS3 localization. that won't be until late 2009, and the US probably won't see FFXIII until Q2-Q4 2010. by that point, Playstation 3 gamers will have played Little Big Planet Motorstorm: PR SOCOM: Confrontation Resistance 2 Killzone 2 God of War 3 MAG DC Universe Online Heavy Rain Gran Turismo 5 Uncharted 2 Ratchet and Clank Future 2 Team Ico's first PS3 project (they're working on two, from what Fumito Ueda said) White Knight Story and a bunch of really cool PSN titles. so hopefully FFXIII will be worth the delay, as the competition certainly won't be light.
Looks great, I'm glad we are seeing more visually impressive games from Japan this gen, there have not been many stunners on the visual side. Of course there is the stunning MGS4 but everything else is, of now, unreleased.
FFXIII was a game I always expected to be graphically mind blowing, but with the amount of time it's taken to develop it I think people will be less impressed. Not to say the graphics aren't excellent, but a lot of competition for cutting edge visuals has been released in the mean time, and when I look at these screens now I see nothing that surprises me or opens my eyes. Seems like a shame. They obviously have some excellent tech worthy of high praise, but it's just taken so long to see the light of day.
but u gotta remember there screens from the ps3 so we dont know if it's gonna look like this on the 360
they both look amazing
Hmmm.... First I thought a couple of these were the known CGI ones, but at a closer look these do seem to be ingame indeed. Impressive hair.
After playing FFXIII on the 360, I bet half the Xbots' 360 will RROD, the other half will convert to get PS3...what a smart plan SONY!!!! No wonder it's still exclusive in Japan...cause they don't need to scheme anything over there.
Roll on March09 (demo :P)
The 360 version won't look worse fools, there are literally 0 multiplatform games that look any worse on 360 but not the case the other way round. And before u argue, look at any head to head comparisons, it's the biggest rarity for the PS3 to compare. It will look exactly the same on the 360. I love how you people praise FF13 for ages, and then when it's not the saving grace u needed, every bitter PS3 owner is like 'versus looks so much better graphically' as tho the FF13 screens are worse cos of the change even tho they're on the PS3. They both look the same if u hadn't noticed, but oh yeah, cos FF13 is multiplatform it looks appalling now lol
