Here are the highest quality Final Fantasy XIII gameplay screenshots we've had so far from Famitsu PSP + PS3.
Looking good. Now a release date please?
I'm just happy their going to be building this game on the PS3! and release it first in Japan.I don't want to play another game where the 360 is bringing down the PS3 power..
a leap as FF7. I hope it's true, and I also Hope that they take advantage of ps3 spes as much as possible.
Still very much not sure about SE,they have yet to make a successful game for ether the 360 or ps3(no games), hopefully they wont disappoint with such a successful franchise as Final Fantasy
Is that blood I see? Maybe not, its hard to tell. Its the pic where she is slashing a lizard thing.
NA/Europe won't see this game until 2010 at least.
I hope they fully take advantage of the 360's power and don't downgrade it too much on account of the PS3. Nah, I'm kidding, but lots of developers have told us both consoles are basically equal in performance and I am sick of PS3 fanboys taking it upon themselves to just decide that the PS3 is much more powerful. The 360 isn't going to hold the PS3 version back in the least. It was allegedly already in development on the PS3 before it ever started development on the 360, so I don't see how it could be held back by the 360 (if such a thing is even possible). It's basically a chance for a PS3 fanboy to take a potshot at the 360 and nothing else. Let me ask you something: if a game is developed on the 360 first and ported to the PS3 it nearly always looks better on the 360, yet if a game is developed on the PS3 and ported to the 360 it nearly always looks equal (and sometimes still better) on the 360, why is that? How do you think the 360 would hold back the PS3, given the facts above?
discussions about games, not about which console is better? It's a good thing to see you writing in decent english (unlike a lot of others) but I think you better can put your comment in the open zone. Thank you. Ontopic: game looks great, and #1.5, I really hope not!
Lightning's beautiful, isn't she?
just too all of the fanboys out there slagging one system or the other you do realize that their toolset is set up to develop on pc first, and then they port it to consoles? it makes localization easier crystal tools works that way, then they optimize for each respective version there will be very little if any disparity between the versions and one system won't limit the other i'm sure if this game comes out sucking it will be 360 or ps3s fault because that is how you peoples minds work but anyway...good day
I'm sure this game will be out in Japan towards the later half of the year maybe around the holidays and then early 2010 for everyone else.
The in game graphics are looking really good... it looks like Square Enix might earn some of that respect back.
I can hope so ..!
Good Comment, Deleted all the replying to a reply crap.
Me and my late timezone!
I don't care about any of the other games they have released provided this hits the spot.
Can't wait to play this baby on my Xbox 360 Elite.
I KNOW! Multiplatform is a great thing! I mean , I can't wait to play the superior version of Alan Wake on my PC!
in 2010 at the earliest. lol i will be enjoying this gem this year. but thats because i can read japanese. PS3 FTW!!!
Yeah with 4 disks or more!! and by the time it comes out i bet your have problems with your 360..
And VERSUS XIII on PS3. :)
Look at this guys history,he says FFXIII will suck and the only good Final Fantasy games are on the DS and now all of a sudden he can't wait to play FFXIII on his Xbox 360? LOL truly sad.
This game looks great I might have to import it.
Oh wow a simple comment made by prime and you can feel these guys raging from their pc. the fanboy war can be entertaining at times.
I agree. It's entertaining. Somebody mentions that they will play this game on their 360 and the PS3 fanboys get all up in arms.
Video to much to ask? Each time a new coupe of screens are released we see them over and over. This is what a 100 hour game maybe? Surely they have something they can share. Sorry, Square Enix and the whole "closed theatre" thing have really p***ed me off, we buy it, we should see it.
So true. Closed Theatre benefits NO ONE.
I agree, but these pics are mind numbingly good. Amazing. I cant wait.
Closed theaters = Extra yen for SE's trailer DVDs aka "CLOUD".
I personally prefer it this way, makes it all the more exciting when you get the game. Too often these days you feel like you have seen half the game already through media, so it makes a nice change for a company to remain tight lipped about a game.
although square enix probably wont i would like the Japanese version to have subtitles so i can import it here in America. wont happen though
It looks awesome so far.
yup, me does want this and Versus side by side in Collector's Edition
every time I see a screen shot of FF13 I just can't help but think gosh, how much better could it be if they weren't being pushed to be on DVD format too.
Optical disc capacity does not directly relate to how many pixels you can push, DVD alone will not effect the PS3 version in anyway. It just makes the job a little more difficult for SE to "cut" the game up for multiple DVDs on the 360 and the extra charges that go along with having multiple DVDs (something MS will have to cough up for). In fact DVD actually reads at a larger rate than BR, so there for BR can pose a challenge, having good streaming or using the HDD effectively (doesnt mean installs) see, naughty dog. Allp urely due to BR drives (in the PS3) being early revisions, read speeds will increase, just as happened with DVD.
Actually Fishy since the game would be on a DL DVD the blu-ray disc reads slightly faster.
Ah yeah, true they will use a DL Disc which means one layer reads 12X and the second, 8X. But even at 8X, DVD still reads more than a 2X BR drive (PS3). DVD 8× 84.38 (Mibit/s) 10.80 (MB/s) 12× 126.60 (Mibit/s) 16.20 (MB/s) BR 2× 72 (Mibit/s) 9 (MB/s) That's where the good use of HDD (again, not installs) comes in.
Yes you are right about that, the reason though why I said a BD is faster is because DVD's cannot run at max speed all the time because of its design. It's about the average you can get between the slowest(inside) and the fastest(outside) read speed. Where BD's are constant throughout. http://forums.maxconsole.ne...
To summarise: 2x Blu-ray: 9.00 MB/s CONSTANT <- This is all PS3 games 12x SL DVD: 10.57 MB/s AVERAGE 8x DL DVD: 7.93 MB/s AVERAGE <- This is most 360 games
there is a lot more to this than just drive speeds though...drive speeds are important...but the capacity is the major advantage...as obvious as that may be... this for example is just one of many developers stating that extra capacity is ALWAYS a good thing... http://www.videogamer.com/n... and... http://www.videogamer.com/n... Guerrilla has stated similar things as well...by utilizing BD as a high res uncompressed texture storage medium, and streaming the textures in in uncompressed formats...it frees up additional processing and memory that would otherwise be used 'unpacking' the textures...ANY HD game on DVD has to have the textures 'packed' on, as uncompressed textures in HD resolutions are simply far too large for that format...not that the PS3 has any trouble with processing power over rival consoles anyway, but memory is often a different story... Guerrilla's approach will become very common among first party software from Sony (as Uncharted also did this, but to a much lesser degree apparently)...and is rumored to be put into the ongoing EDGE middleware for 3rd party developers...it kills two birds with zero stones...it frees up memory and processing power...it also creates no need for an HDD install...and it results in games looking like Killzone 2...which no other console game is even close to...
That UI seems to take up alot of screen space
Not uncommon in Final Fantasy games :) http://www.youtube.com/watc... (FF7 Battle UI)
We live in an HD world now!
Yupp! Scaned mid resolution pix' for teh winz
Can't wait to play this baby exclusively first on my PS3 320GB with one disc only.
I don't know why, but something tells me it's just not going to look like that on the 360.
Man this is so funny, all the little babies can come up with is "I will play it on one disc". Then you enjoy it on you're 1 disk and you're 20 min install. Everyone should be happy that either console will enjoy this great title.
So SE confirmed there was going to be a 20 minute install?!?! Source? Proof? Facts? Link? Press Release?....Nah this is the internetz you don't need that stuff! Right!?! :rollseyes:
1 Disc....18 Discs....20 Minute Installs. Doesn't change the fact that this story is about "New Screenshots" and not a My hardware can beat up your hardware debate.
Can't help but disagree when I see two "you're" back to back when it should be "your"...
Available on Xbox 360.
NOT Avalible on Xbox 360.
"Available on Xbox 360." In 2010, on 3 disks, and not in Japan lol...
Can't we ever read a comments section without it coming down to this PS3 vs 360 bullshit?
not. On topic, can't wait for the video's to start coming out.
the x360 version really won't see the light of day until late 2010 or even 2011.
Looks better than GOW3. With it's ps2.5 screenshots.
I have both systems. But today I just got Last Remnant and I can't believe how unplayable and confusing the game is. The way I look at it is that Squeenix needs to stop making crappy games and put all their efforts on one beast at a time. Imagine if Squeenix put Triace to help make FF and vs. It probably would be done by now.
Is everyone back on Square n$ts...now..lol
Yeah, it doesn't look that impressive. Looks like another PS2.5 game.
WTF? o_0 Where have you seen a jrpg with ingame graphics at this caliber?
i thought the graphics were going to be better http://finalfantasy-xiii.ne... http://finalfantasy-xiii.ne... oh well, i can wait for ff14
Sorry, but it would really suck to be you.
This is really good graphics, better than most other games. So you must have had very unrealistic expectations.
Stop hating on either side because it doesn't matter whether one version is better than the other. The truth is that this game will be great no matter what whether its on 1 disc or 4 discs. The PS3 will probably have installs to greatly reduce any loading times on a game that huge, so grab a soda and sit back and soak in the fact your about to play a great game, and its only once so it doesn't matter. Disc swapping takes 2 seconds so it also doesn't matter.. its not like there's a huge problem with getting up and changing the discs, in the meantime grab a soda, sit down and soak in the greatness of the game. People are getting so fat and lazy... Also @ at a comment above someone said 360 people will have to wait till after the PS3 version. I believe it was confirmed during E3 last year that they will share a simultaneous release. @Camper I doubt the 360 version will have better graphics. I own all 3 systems and I'm a little on the ps3 side with this one because it is originally being developed on the ps3 but they can be made very equal. Look at Resident Evil 5... I really cannot see any difference.
on a last-gen optical drive. This game is going to be pirated like crazy on a lot of torrent sites upon its release. Hope they make money by releasing it on the Japanese market first.
