DarkZero: With Home on the way soon (at least we hope it is, but we would not bet money on it), Sony has shown an image at TGS that shows what companies they are working with to include features in Home.
I'm actually not at all surprised at the lack of Square Enix logo.
Their general lack of support for Sony in games this gen, without adding something else on to it?
good point. Bubbles for you my good sir
i think SE is trying to break away from Sony this gen. mb they want to drop sony and only make games for the Xbox. mb level 5 can fill in the gap?
but that doesn't mean they're not supporting home.. i'm not saying that square enix will support it.. i'm just making an observation. But i do believe that SE is a bit more focus on money now than with giving gamers the best experience possible.. we're gonna have to wait and see thou.
1.5 has a strong point
OffTopic: Everyone report him please. OnTopic: Not surprised at some of them, but what are the rest of the non game companies?
They should make a virtual Nike store where you can look at shoes and actually buy them and the shoes get delivered to your house.
Insomniac and MM don't have to be shown. They're first party. They automatically support it.
Well PirateThom, they are supporting the release of a sephiroth sackboy. That has to count for something right?
actually they're third party they just happen to make games for ps3 only.. they're not OWNED by Sony thou..
@leyego: Yes. @Final_Rpg: Sony owns the rights to the FFVII for North America and Europe, if I'm not mistaken. So, it probably wasn't too much of a stretch for SE to "OK" to Sony when told "We're going to use Sephiroth in LittleBigPlanet."
Level 5 is the next developer who has as much talent as Square Enix. I personally don't care if SE has some kind of bug up their A$$ to only develop properties other than Final Fantasy for the Xbox 360; Level 5 has a quality reputation just as well as they do.
I remembered reading an article about the owner of square enix, and he said he hates making games for sony, and he said something about his work not being appreciated in sony. I never thought he actually meant it. We should get naughty dog and insomniac soon.
Which tells me that later on, Square-Enix might join up. Besides, if Nomura were to lead Square-Enix, we would see a lot of love for Sony. He's the one keeping Final Fantasy Versus XIII PS3 exclusive as well as Kingdom Hearts.
You have to see it from Square Enix point of view also. PS3 is very expensive to develop for. Why? Because: 1. Microsoft hands out money to every major developer that wants to create games for thier console. 2. Hand held platforms like the psp, DS and what not, are at a lower cost development senario with games and often sells more software than on a console platform, there for bringing in more money than spent on developing them. Also making games for hand helds involves a much lower risk in making them because of the low cost budget and if the game should flop you haven't wasted so much money on it anyways. 3. The huge install base of the Wii makes making games for it a sure hit and on top of that the Wii has few great games out so it will be easy to trump the one's already out. 4. The 360 will soon also have a huge install base like the wii just because of the (seemingly) low price. So developing for it gives you both a big fat check and then a garantee that you will have a huge crowd to sell your game to. Square Enix knows this and that's why they have jumped ship on the PS3. Sure they are abunch of money hungry whores but they are smart and a company isn't run on fan loyalty in the end. Money is what makes the machinery go around.
Square enix is no longer close with Sony, ok. Its not a corporate thing. It may simply be Wada and his new gang of goonies. You know when Sony and SE were close close, different people ruled SE. Now these people have retired and Wada has taken over. Wada may simply be an arrogant fker who doesnt like Sony. Whatever reason, and Im sure MS dollars helped quite a bit, SE makes more games for 360 now than for PS3. We need to just accept this and move on. No use in crying over a 50 year old hooker. Square enix is not Squaresoft. SEs skills and talents are not even close to what Squaresoft was initially. So its not even a big loss for us. Level 5 on the other hand is clearly a very talented studio which is clearly the new Squaresoft. Having Level 5 on PS3 side is a huge boost. There is no comparison when you compare the two. SE is the EA of the east now. Whiteknight - 3 years development, 1080P, 60 FPS, 100+ hours story, first in the series, exclusive for the PS3 (hard to develop my ass - where there is a WILL, there is a WAY), 16 multi player online, 4 player coop, just EPICNESS beyond scale. Now compare that to FF13. FF13 - 4 years in development - Story: "uh TBA, we will get back to you guys", Online: "TBA", 720P or 1080P: "TBA", gameplay: "TBA", multiplayer: "TBA", how long will FF13 be: "TBA", release date in Japan: "uhh somewhere around 2009" (which makes it 5 years in development). Release date in rest of the world: TBA, Ok, then tell us about the characters then: "uh, we revealed a few characters already, the rest is uhhh...TBA". EVERYTHING is TBA on FF13. And the release date is being pushed back and back and back and back and the trailer is the same old BS trailer with a few seconds added in, shown at CLOSED doors as always. You know at first I was like "ok, maybe they just dont want internet going crazy over early footage". But now, its just getting crazy. Its clear that they are hiding something. If the game is good, what is there to hide about. The company (SE) is non transparent, has developed an enormous ego, does no longer know the meaning of the term loyalty, is pushing trash after trash after trash out, I do not see how this company is going uphill. No, they have went downhill for quite a while now. And their destination is ROCK BOTTOM, clearly.
Take Crapcom off that list now!
square-enix are no longer the king of rpgs anyways nippon ichi stole that title from them when they start producing titles and they are not only there they are still exclusive. S-E just take wayyy too long we have been waiting for 4 years for a ps3 version of ffxii and thanks to them making it for 360 ps3 owners will have to wait even longer. S-E used to be my number one game company now its NI and KOEI.
Shin...don't be surprised if Kingdom Hearts and Versus goes multiplatform. Square wants money. That's all there is to it.
they will end up there ... and so will many more . specialy new ones that will use home to make people like their games ...
I didn't even think about them when I was looking through the list.
oo and see that capcom and snk and sega logos ... do you know the ideas thouse logos are gaving me about their spaces .. sexy kick ass old classics at their spaces .. humm humm what u think about that play some arcade virtua fighter, Street fighter, some nice snk fighting . humm humm lol...
Good luck getting Capcom to give you anything for free.
lol i know what you mean lol... but hey u never know lol... lets wait and see lol.. .
Maybe we can drop virtual quarters from our virtual PSN wallet.

suprised to see a lack of first partys or are they just expected i would have like to have seen L5 and SE as an rpg fan
Level 5 is a developer, WKC is published by Sony. Every game published by Sony will be there automatically
is another day for sony conference where they will show there games including the very secretive mystery game that will put all in awe and the 8 more sony http://www.jp.playstation.c... exclusive from sony and 5 from other developers
This is just about 3rd party companies. It's already widely known that the likes of Naughty Dog, Insomniac etc. are working with Sony on Home, creating features for it such as the Uncharted space currently in the Beta.
I have a bad feeling that it is going to be another case of Trophies.
What? Where everyone starts supporting it anyway?
Good,Sony have blocked Square-enix from Playstation Home
Reported as Offensive.
Wanna die white boy?
1.1 He has to be a child. If not if u feel tough expose yourself. My blade cutter will love to say hi. And why aren't the rest of you cats reporting a prick like this. If some are underground racists fine, but don't let assholes like this destroy n4g this way.
please don't degrade to his kind with threats of violence.
OMG, Atlus????? Count me in!!
no sony? lol jk
ok that make me laugh
Haha, made me laugh too
Rockstar will be there soon as well, they are pretty eager to support Home. Other than that, its nice to see a good amount of companies that believe in Home, although im not surprised with EA being on that list, they have been having good ties with Sony When it comes to Advertising.
what the hell is wrong with that guy? i think his wife cheated on him any way i wish they would do a side by side of this and live. i think i would piss my pants if that shows up... live crushes that little list that fits on a 10" t.v
every company is required to connect with live. Home Does what live Doesnt do. When These companies make their Home Spaces, they are going to make money, want to Know how? easy, Advertising, and selling Home Items. Thats why Home is considered as a XBL killer.
of course live has more its been around 4 alot longer u airhead and all they have 14 mill. come on psn is growing faster then live so [email protected] ur couch
"only" 14 million? psn is frikin FREE and what its got like 2 or 3 million and thats stretching it. all the more reason on why live is better its been out 4 years. fvck my couch? sounds like you have a hobby their. only a young punk virgin would think up of some sh!t like that..
exactly its free LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. FREE>>>>>>& gt;>>>>>>> PAYING
According to this article, xbox live has more than 12 millions and PSN has more than 8 millions. And the article is from May 2008. http://news.softpedia.com/n...
Ignore Air1. He fails to realise the power and brilliance of Sony. He secretly wants to swallow Bill Gates' nut juice me thinks. Or Shane Kims, but i bet that will taste spicy. I think Air1's family is dead too, so maybe he should abort himself?
flyop in the ayer...aaa...ayer song was sent to air1 above me^^
I'd hope every company that daels with Sony would back them on this... I'm Shock that they even wasted the time to make this image
they are. And when it comes to Square-Enix, you'll see them sign up for this service, they are going to Have to Advertise Final Fantasy XIII in some form. Heck Since FFXIII is a next year title, its going to be required to Have Trophies as well.
Are already there. I'm good. I mean, I'd like to see SE come to their senses, but I'm not going to dwell on it. Their mediocre game sales on the 360 will catch up to them soon enough.
Mediocre game sales? I think you meant Mediocre Games.
That too. Only I'm hoping that FFXIII won't be mediocre. Even though I'm positive it will be gimped. SE can say it won't be until they turn blue, no one is going to believe anything they say after what they did at E3.
show me where u got those numbers i have four kids man far from a virgin
@pwnsauce ssooooo, what are you saying? that all the companies that are "required" to be on live cant advertise? have you been on live? so for the past 4 years these companies havnt been advertising and making money on live? damn thats fvcked up.... dummy....
so far, i only seen Microsoft Only Ads on live. The only thing Devs can make money off of live is DLC, and they only get some of that money. ROFLCOPTER. on the PSN not only do they get some of those funds thru DLC, but they get their funds thru Advertising their own stuff in their Own Home Space, and Sell their own Home Items, you cant do that on live dummy. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL Let the Flames against PWNSAUSE begin HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA
xboxlive had ads for old spice deodarant. Yeah there was a tourney & old spice was a sponsor but still... Old spice slapped on the tv?
yea, is old spice a game developer? ROFL, alright, I lied just a little bit. I just wanted air1's bubbles to be gone. But in all seriousness though what Im trying to say is their ad system is very limited compared to Home's Ad system, in Home, you can dedicate a home space just to advertise your games. thats why you recently heard some people saying Home's possibilities are infinate, cause you can do many things in Home from the buisness perspective and from the consumer's perspective.
amazon.com homespace ebay.com homespace the home shopping network homespace omg?!? are you serious? Really? Qvc homespace craigslist homespace get a job homespace In 2 years we might have cable pay per view homespace !!!
The North American Home support won't look like this... Too many Japanese companies that won't support English.
imagine you are having an LBP marathon with friends... and u want to order domino's pizza... just visit that space, look at the crisp HD pictures of pizzas, place a menu and have it delivered! no phone calls or pc for online order... now that's extra convenience!
When Square knows blueray is the future and what it is capable of and still the only thing they do is F#ck us over. Its really hard to tell what they are planning when there pullng away from Sony. But the one thing Sqaure never understands is that MS only wants to f#ck things up. It just isent the good times with Square anymore.
its of topic but bomb scares rock gets u of school
