FinalFantasy-XIII.net: As the rest of the Japanese game magazines, Dengeki has followed suit with the new Final Fantasy XIII gameplay screenshots and information.
looks pretty good so far
Looks okay but it is no where near what it was hyped up to be. My interest is still only Final Fantasy Versus XIII.
hopefully versus looks fresher than this. FFXIII is looking a little dated. i'm sure it'll sell in japan; but, i'm not picking it up.
Looks good, still have a few on the other side still crying about it though ^^^ point made
I can't believe some of you pathetic sony fanboys are dismissing FFXIII as a bad game just because its multiplatform. Honestly you morons need to go f**k yourself. Im really interested in VS XIII but these scans look absolutly amazing. Jaw dropping...
No1 said it was going to be a bad game. They stated they were more interested in versus which after looking at the new trailers i am too. I'm picking them both up if they ever get released...
oh wait....... gay!
Haha. Moblin got owned. :P
FFXIII does look good but SE seriously has to stop with the closed theater nonsense.I just want to see the gameplay in motion.Is that so hard?
Remember we didn't get to see any game play from GTAIV until the very last moment.
Yeah. It probably pains them deeply to show off even a strand of hair flowing in a real time battle. Damn Square Enix.
@Shadow Man What you say worries me.I did not like GTA4 too much :( @bigmassacre That is just wrong.
Final Fantasy XIII will be a great game only when it comes out on Xbox360.
hahahahaha oh my :D
Let's hope for the sake of all that is correct and intelligent that he's kidding. Porting a game from the PS3 to the 360 will NOT...I repeat...NOT make it look BETTER than the PS3 version.
haha glitches of war 2 didn't even win one single goty
shut up and @2.3 gears 2 is amazing and shut up my god,fanboys are out of this world
Yeah it did Obama, the real Obama would kick you in the nuts for being so stupid.
Beautiful scans, from the PS3 footage as usual... "Final Fantasy XIII will be a great game only when it comes out on Xbox360. " Thank you but i prefer to play my games on one disc on a true next gen console.
No SquareEnix games out on the PS3 and its going into its 3rd year on the market, this is just shameful that they are not trying to please the fans any way they can, because there fans are proving that the Ps3 is where the RPG action is, WKC sold 100,000 first day in japan which totally A$$ rapes any Shovelware SquareEnix has brought out on the Xbox360, this should be a lesson Square, don't keep sleeping with Microsoft and turning your backs on the fans because there is a reason your sales are down 74% and your shareholders and your fans will not allow this much longer. besides we both know that the Xbox360 cant even run FF13 the 360 has been optimized and maxed out already with gears of war.
I'm not a fan of SquareEnix anymore, I used to be. There are many awesome developers out there, I only support the awesome ones.
its been downhill ever since the Enix buyout of the company imo
Square has always been kinda been multi platform, I personally don't give a sh1t, it looks sick. I'm just glad scumsoft didnt't buy them out all together. ps3 1 disc ! ftw :)
But they aren't this generation. They have only made next gen titles for the 360. I wouldn't call that being multiplatform. I think it doesn't matter anymore. I miss Enix, and Squaresoft when they were in their truest and purest forms. FFX is the only game that was good after they merged together. Which Im sorta glad because thats probably one of my favorite games of all time, but it doesn't matter. They don't put the magic in their games like they used to. Its a damn shame that they don't stick with the formulas that have always worked in the past.
I'll agree with that, the last really good Final Fantasy has been FFX. FFXI wasn't all that great IMO. but I do know every Final Fantasy that was the first on every next-Gen console have been Great so I have high hopes for this one...Plus I'll buy a traditional JRPG instead of FFXIII VS first.
Vs 13 will better imo
You make your opinion before playing either game?
since they think since FFVS is exclusive to only the PS3. I bet you if that is multi then it would be opposite. Just as some already dropped Square since it went multi-plat and jumped on level 5, as you know the same would happen if they made a multi-plat game as well. Fanboy mentality
If Square Announced today that Ps3 and 360 would both get all current and future versions of the final fantasy series, and that the ps3 would be the main console it was programmed for and the 360 would get a port regardless of how many disc's it would require. The PS3 owners who's sole reason for purchasing the system was the implied exclusiveness of the final fantasy franchise. Would cry about how microsoft paid and square betrayed etc etc when in reality they feel dooped for dishing out a months car note. I honestly believe that most of the people who are upset are early adopters cause if u bought the system after at the current 399 price point you have no reason to ccry since its been evident from other devlopers that multiplatform was the new Craze. (i personally believe that they are goin to start forcing you to download a portion of the game from xbox live free ofcourse as a remedy for the inferior dvd9 maybe witha 8 gb limit(reducing the ammount of discs by 1)) I honestly understand why they would be upset and i dont blame them ... But the thing i hate the most is how much these japanese company's are worshiped when they $hit on every other country, in terms of getting things out to other people, system colors, games, price cuts,information on games, etc, etc. Which is the reason i didnt purchase my ps3 yet(YET) /end rant
... claimed to be only possible on PS3 I see FF13 as a 360 game now and thats what MS is trying to do... They are taking all the names you associate with PS and making you associate them with MS... And its working... Next gen FF will be exclusive to MS along with Tekken, RE and DMC etc etc
You don't make sense dude..
Do you think people bought 360 to play FF on it? They bought that console to play FPS/TPS games.Playing JRPG with long cutscenes and repetative battles is not fun enough for them.
Be sensible, they haven't even started the 360 version yet. If it just so happens, the 360 version is a mess, then what?
Wow your comment makes no sense whatsoever. I never knew that RE was "Sony" franchise. RE is associated with Nintendo more than any other company. I have friends that didn't know that FF13 will come to 360 until I told them a few weeks ago. People that want to play FF13 have already purchased PS3s years ago. So, you just shot yourself in the foot with your ignorant comment.
Please, go on. It's entertainment. I'm one of many who bought or are waiting on PS3 to drop price for this game. Maybe even when this game comes out, price won't matter to some. it's one of the most anticipated titles in gaming, and to me the most anticipated title on PS3, right next to Killzone 2. I mention those together because they are both due out in 2009 and possibly have G.O.T.Y Contender written all-over them.
Thats funny you say that, considering the 360 version hasn't been in development yet. How do you know Squeenix can put FF13 on the 360 if they haven't even tried? I mean, I don't want 360 only guys to not play the game. But lets be serious here bud. It wont be as good as the ps3 version unless Squeenix deliberately shinks the original version of the game so they could fit it on some dvd 9's. I heard that it has the 50 gb almost at full capacity. How many dvd 9's is that. 50 divided by 7 gig is 7 disc. You mean to tell me that FF13 is gonna be a 6 to 7 disc game on the 360 and be as good as the ps3 version? Good luck with that Squeenix. Your gonna need it.
I'll care if Square-Enix stops pushing out mediocre games but I don't see that happening anytime soon so i'll be skipping this one. I will also be skipping FFvs13 and anything related to the FF13 universe. I'm not really interested in Square-Enix's games anymore (especially since Atlus & Level 5 have both proven to have higher quality games that don't suck).
The 360 version hasn't even started. ^^ PS3 gets the game first, i dont know how people can associate this game with an Xbox, It's been a PS franchise since PS came to be. ^^ i appauld MS for dumping the Cash at these Japanese Developers, Microsoft spends more money pn PS games than PS gamers...
FYI there were 6 Final Fantasy's before FF7 ...i know its might be a difficult thing to remember but check your facts, Final Fantasy was on Nintendo and was associated with Nintendo for quite some time, then it was moved to the Sony Playstation because of the superior CD, now its being partially shared between ps3 and 360 (advantage ps3). So i;m sure there were people claiming Final Fantasy wouldnt be associated with Sony, point is you never know what might happen
This looks phenomenal. I just have one issue with it. There is far too much HUD and it's very distracting. Hopefully FFvXIII will have a very clean display and a KH style combat system and story.
"gotta agree with you mike...... hopefully versus looks fresher than this. FFXIII is looking a little dated. i'm sure it'll sell in japan; but, i'm not picking it up. " Both games are being developed with SE's inhouse white engine, the same engine.each being develpoed on the playstation 3 first, so ffvs13 won't be the second coming either
...Let's think about what happened to many of the Enix franchises since the merge. -Illusion of Gaia: largely ignored; it's pseudo-sequel, Terranigma, never saw light outside of emulation. Maybe Enix was going to bring it over. Maybe another game would have been made. But nah. -Grandia: granted, it's Game Arts, but I believe Enix had a hand in bringing the original to the PSX. Then Grandia 2 to the Dreamcast... then we get Xtreme which perfects the battle system (but forgets about a story). Then Squeenix releases the half-finished Grandia 3. I dunno, but it really feels like Square may have rushed those out the door to make room for "bigger" titles. -Valkyrie Profile: The original was given to us by the Enix Gods. The second, by the Squeenix Gods. It shows. Still a great game, but just... missing the magic. -Star Ocean: I've never been a huge fan of Star Ocean, but just look at the hate the third title has gotten. Don't hear as much about the first two, as far as hate goes. My point is... Enix, tri-Ace, and Game Arts have all been victims in this "merger". All of their games have suffered. Heaven help us if Level 5 didn't take charge of Dragon Quest VIII. It is for those reasons (among less serious ones, like ignoring the potential in a Vagrant Story sequel, or absolutely ruining the Mana franchise and never giving us the best game in its series (Seiken Densetsu 3)) I have no respect for Square Enix. Well, Square. Enix can't help what it was forced to marry.
Actually, it was Enix who technically took over Square.
actually, Enix was not the developer of Illusion of Gaia/Time( i'm replaying that game its brilliant). Quintet were the developers. But Illusion of Gaia, was before the merge? edit: But i agree xD
I wanna see it moving Square...
on my 360
Why are all the girls looking like anorexic little whores? Can I play a final fantasy game for once where I don't feel like I'm eye-raping little girls on screen?
