Around ten seconds of real-time footage from Final Fantasy XIII was shown on TV in Japan, and confirmed that an older screenshot released to the public a while ago is indeed real-time.
and show us something new.
White Night chronicles is on the same bar if not higher than FF13!! they showed us in-game screens but this is just some videos from in-game of FF13!! FF13 will have to prove to as that FF13 will be worth it and that it used the advantage of blue ray and cell! because if they dump the game down just so they can release it on 360 then WNC will steal the hype that FF13 will get!!
@1.1 White Knight Chronicle is going to be great, but you highly underestimate the words "Final Fantasy." Those 2 words have the ability to sell a million copies a week, no matter the quality.
This game will be delayed like twenty times and will never lose steam. In a way, that kind of makes me want to play it.
360 will handle it. Where is the power of the CELL?
Making games instead of downloadable content for GTAIV, I'm guessing.
Looking for oil Powering Roadrunner- 2nd most powerful computer in the world (1st is the human brain). Running Uncharted, Ratchet and Clank,MotorStorm, LBP,WipeOut HD, Socom Resistance 2, MGS4, Gran Turismo 5, Killzone 2, Heavy Rain,White Knight Chronicles, GOW3, MAG and FFVXIII.
those who stil believe in the "power of the Cell". PS3 games were suppposed to look at least 4 x better than 360 games.The best looking PS3 game is coming out in 2009 (the 5 year in devellopment and 60 million dollar KZ2) , 2 years after its launch and and looks 0.5 times better than the UE3 powered Gears 2. FF13 was supposed to bo possible ONLY on PS3 thanks to the "power of the Cell" lol remember that guys ?. So was DMC4 , RE5 , Assasins Creed , Haze (FR sure took advantage of PS3 hardware allright!).Most of time "power of the Cell" is an excuse to keep a 3rd party game a PS3 exclusive.
You're an idiot they already said the 360 version is going to be compromised so it can fit on the dvd. This has nothing to do with the cell. Enjoy your watered down half-assed version.
FFXIII has little to do with the CELL, but it has everything to do with blu-ray. xb!tches who are getting it on DVD9 are the dumbest full of sh!t gamers on earth cuz it's one thing to whine like pussies that blu-ray isn't good for games when the only thing you play is halo but when you're into FFXIII and you're ready to butcher it onto DVD9 YOU ARE FULL OF SH!T AND YOU KNOW IT CHEAP DORK
Square-Enix clearly said: "We'll TRY to keep the XBOX 360 version CLOSE to the PS3 version".
@1.4 So Killzone 2 only looks half as good as Gears 2? I think you just lost a lot of credibility there.
Believeable, the screen doesn't show me anything that the current gen couldn't handle. Plus FF generally have turn based fighting which usually revolves around pre-orchestrated movement.
FF lost its turned based fighting two games ago, but yeah, we've seen better graphics.
^^and Little Big Planet.
Only possible on true next generation xbox360
So that is why the 360 version is getting a port instead?
It's actually running on the PS3 and it's coming to the PS3 first. They haven't even begun development on the 360 version. You just owned yourself. "Only possible on true next generation xbox360". It's so funny because the superior version will be on the PS3 because it's been in development for almost 4 years and the 360 version is still non-existant. It's a 50GB game. It will fit on 1 BD and it might fit on 6 DVD if compressed. Uncompressed > Compressed.
Since some of you have a difficult time reading both versions are being ported. The PC is the actual lead for what the engine was built on. So LarVanian your assuming the game is being ported from the PS3 when it is being ported from PC just like the PS3 this WHOLE TIME. Reading is fundamental. At some point can some of you actually do that?
pp just got pwnt
yea, games are made on the pc and then transferred to the consoles...
Why don't you take a chill pill man. We ain't all fat-ass nerds that stay on the computer all day looking up news like you. Some of us actually have social lives. Incase you don't know, a social life is basically when you spend part of your time with friends. And by the way I have never actually read about Square saying that both versions are ports from the PC. You wouldn't mind providing a link? You probably have it saved in your hard-drive for all I know.
yhe pp i know CRAPPY ports are only possible on 360
@3.3 Hey idiot, they're optimizing it for the PS3 first, then compressing all that data for the 360 version. Even if it was built on PC, it was built for PS3. That's where it really matters.
Let me be a bit clearer for some of you. The Engine is designed to work on any console. They stated that the game is not going to be a port from the PS3. The JAPAN version is being developed and then the 360 will start. The US/EU versions for both consoles will be released at the same time. July 14 2008 When is Final Fantasy XIII coming out? To deliver even a vague answer, you'll need to consider the long and winding path the immensely anticipated RPG still has to take -- and the Xbox 360 version isn't about to take a shortcut. Speaking at a special Square Enix Q&A event at E3, Square Enix exec Shinji Hashimoto detailed the developer's strategy, taking care to consider not only the game's multiplatform development, but its localization period as well. Final Fantasy XIII is currently being developed using Square Enix's "Crystal Tools" technology with the PC as base platform. "As we have already announced, we will complete the PS3 version in Japan," explained Hashimoto. "After that, we will start the localization for US and Europe." Once localization is underway, Square will begin development of the Xbox 360 version, with the aim of releasing it in America (with no meaningful content changes) alongside the localized PlayStation 3 version. "Because of languages and other conditions, it may not release in US and Europe simultaneously," noted Hashimoto. http://www.joystiq.com/2008...
real time =/= in game i want to see actual in game shots, that shot isn't uber impressive
man one year before i graduated high school and i'll be playing the game some tiem after that or longer i want this so badly and versus does anyone know if versus gonna be release way after ff 13 comes out?
Nothing special at all
I love the fact that the game is coming to the 360, but I don't see any real reason to brag about a games graphics during a cutscene movie. The current gen consoles are damn near capablle of makinig cg movies in real-time when it comes to cutscenes. And like the other guy said, this game is turn-based with pre-orchestrated animations. I'm sure it's going to be a great game, but it's time to step things up a bit and get some real-time combat thrown in for good measure. Lost Oddysey didn't live up to its full potential simply because more gamers are thriving for non-traditional turn-based style combat.
It wasn't that hard to see. The very first trailer had gameplay footage in it from when the violins kick in.
I realised that long long time ago. Anyway Im not so impressed by the graphics anymore.But since graphics are secondary to me I dont really mind.
Yeah, I've been saying that the FF13 trailer had in game footage thrown in (haven't said this on N4G I think, but other sites for sure). Not a big deal to have it officially confirmed when I've known it for so long.
and wont look nothing like the real one.
I highly doubt the PS3 version will make the 360 version look like Duck Hunt...The graphics will be very comparable.
"The graphics will be very comparable." in my opinion the ps3 it's more powerful than the x360 but just for a little. what i want to know is how's Square-Enix it's going to work with the compression. a game with this graphics quality and length it's going to be difficult to put in 1 or 2 disks, taking into account what the Devs of Rage have been saying because i'm not a developer... because of that i fear a dumbed down version of FFXIII and have been losing the interest in the game opting better for the exclusive (at the moment) FFXIII versus as the definitive FF game.
Psh, says you! Haha, just had to do it :/
where's your source commonsense, just wondering.
http://www.joystiq.com/2008... Just some cannon fodder.
i've been saying that those segments are real time since the trailers first came out way back when... and for those of you saying that real time =/= rin game, in this generation, you move seamlessly from engine cutscene to gameplay. see mgs4.
Jigga... MS barely got their hands into FFXIII. I like the fact that you just adore that we're going to get a dumbed down version of FFXIII, thanks to Microsuck. If it was the other way around, you'd be saying something to the contrast of what I am saying now. If you examine this generation, Microsoft has brought almost nothing but politics to the industry, that and greed. I hate this company, because it ruins everything it touches, tries to make everything it's own just to come up short in the end, every time! Also, I do hope Microsoft causes our console generations to overlap, because it means the next Xbox will be dwarfed by something bigger. Most likely coming from Sony. I can feel that the next generation will be my last. Gaming has been good thus far and I will continue to cling to the nostalgia that brought me here today. Edit: and please, don't call people idiots. It takes two to Tango.
Will never admit that considering they think compressed games beats uncompressed games considering how delusional they are!.
just let them dream. -Pwnsause
and if that was realtime, all I have to say is: DOWNGRADE....CONFIRMED! poooooooooor droids teh cell can't run it!
I'm amazed at how blind and delusional some xbots are.
...Uh...no sh*t? How many times did they say it was real time?
i just want to see how the X360 it's going to render that...
It stopped being great after I've seen Killzone 2 pre alpha and now the recent build of Resistance 2. It's good not great.
Glad to be a ps3 owner.
on xbox360 =) jkjkjk
square enix decision to make ff13 go multiplatform i refuse to let retarded comments like "the graphics in that shot are nothing special now" that sounds really retarded, this is one of the select elite few games out on ps3 which is the only platform capable of putting out cgi level visuals ingame, which looks like cgi, those visuals are so good, for even now people doubt its realtime.
CGI stands for "computer-generated imagery"., Technically super mario brothers (just an example) on the 8bit nintendo is Considered CGI, what's your point. Are you saying that "ps3 is the only platform capable of putting out cgi (computer-generated imagery) level visuals ingame"?
What I see happening here and in a lot of other posts are people dismissing this game just because it's slated to released on both x360 and PS3. You mean that your distaste for anything Microsoft has led you to drop even an FF game? Nothing will be lost in their conversion, they've already stated that "their content will identical" and that "360's development has not/will not interfere with the PS3 version". And saying that XIII Versus will be the TRUE defining PS3 experience is just bologna. Squeenix has invested time resources and money on their work in XIII, something that will be carried over to Versus. What we're seeing in XIII is a nice pretense to what we'll see Versus, but chances are the groundwork will be identical. Don't get me wrong, I'm expecting quite a lot for Versus. I just hate seeing so many people act all out of line just because FF is coming to x360.
did you hear that?? It was the sound of a 360 EXPLODING!! Missed the sound don't worry you'll get to hear it again at launch.
