The official FF XIII webpage has the Western version of the new trailer with English subtitles and correct end frame.
suppose to look like the CGI action just like in the beginning of the trailer. :( Also, we didn't get to see the enviroments in-game but we saw a CGI representation of world. All in all, It seems like FF13 did borrow the look and feel of FF12 combat but not hugely impressive, if you take out the glamor and glory of CGI.
omg, the FIRST public showing of gameplay in motion :O IMO there is a huge difference between the CGI scenes and the ingame engine scenes... But that doesn't mean it looks bad, i think it's the best looking RPG... But i gotta admit... The gameplay seems ORGASMIC... Thank GOD they didn't fu****k that up. =) This and Versus.... will buy...
Again PS3 owners suffer from another muilti-platform game..I am sure the PS3 version will be better but their not taking advantage of the hardware..I can not watch it and say 'WoW' because their nothing special..
better quality but there is still a big difference between CGi and In-game graphics..im a lil disappointed considering how long they have been working on this game and they claimed it would have looked liked Cgi in motion...... but the combat does look great hope the story isn't as underwhelming as FF12
they should have Eng. subs to the JPN release. they could garner more sales this way as crazyies like me would import the JPN version and buy the Western version later on. that equals 2 sales for one game. i doubt i'd be the only crazy to do this either. o_O
This is the PAL website.
i know whats going on now...
Looks great, I don't know what CGI movies you guys have been watching but FF Advent children (movie) looks just like this. I digress, I wonder how many 360 discs this will be on?
The framerate during the in-game shots seemed not-so-good. We'll just have to see once we get a demo. I'm not getting my hopes up.
@cal i noticed that too. hopefully it was just the flash video stuttering. because if their engine can't support that, then shame of them for trying to optimize it for multiple platforms. combat system looks like a mix of 12 and x-2, which is a strange combo, because its widely regarded that 12 has the worst system while x-2 is the best..
For some reason it is hard to not notice the fact that this trailer doesn't say "Releasing Simultaneously on PS3 and 360". hmm....
They have some sweet animations and choreography in those battles. Character models and textures are great. air juggles and combos is win. I want to see some kind of Omnislash attack.
for xbox360 and ps3 for western trailers and 2009 for ps3 in japan
When watching the video it looks like the same type of group play first introduced in FFXII. It may have some updated mechanics and it will have a different story. The graphics are much improved but is to be expected in a generation leap of platforms. I'm not as excited about this game as I originally was but I am still looking forward to it and as a RPG player will most likely enjoy it none the less. I'm more looking forward to Level 5's White Knight Chronicles more than I am this game. Of course it does help that WKC will be available before this game will be :)
would someone please explain what they disagree with me on my statement. I don't mind being wrong. I played FFXII and liked it a lot where others didn't seem to enjoy it. Just the video "gameplay" reminded me of FFXII is all? Oh well just curious if anyone could explain what difference in opinion you had is all. Well check back later
I don't know why people hate FFXII all of a sudden. It's not my favorite in the series, but I've still beaten it three times. I didn't click the disagree for your comment, but I do in fact disagree. This looks nothing like twelve. The scenes shown reek of "battle screen" fights rather than in-world. Once we see some actual transition from roaming the game world and battles we'll know better. And if it makes you feel better, I'm sure someone will disagree with my comment too. :)
I will have to agree with you, I am making a bit of a snap judgement on the gameplay aspects being like FFXII without seeing the normal movement versus the transition into battle. I guess I will hold off on my full judgement on that until after someone gets hold of the FFXIII demo that comes the Final Fantasy Advent Children Blu-ray. I look forward to the day we get more information on this :)
damn this looks good, now i just wonder what versus is going to look like
Is it in english if you import it from japan??
My point exactly i wonder what FF13 will look like if its truly a PS3 exclusive game! lets hope they wont turn their back on us again and announce FFversus on the 360..
FFXIII is a huge success on the 360, then don't be surprised if months later Square Enix announcing FFXIII Versus going multiplat as well. People should not trust the words of a developer, especially SE.
-People should not trust the words of a developer, especially SE.- Money talks.
pretend it isn't multi, then you can think its almighty great.
Gameplay looks great but falls short of what I was expecting in terms of visuals. I dunno how in the hell SE would promise CGI-like quality graphics and then deliver what really doesnt look to surpass Lost Odyessy. Oh wait... yes I do, Money. I knew this game would get scaled back once they announced it as Multi-Plat. Thats been confirmed. Either way, Atleast we will all get to enjoy it and I'm sure it will be an AWSOME game.
great video ^^ now if they CAN STOP working xbox360, so we will get PS3 version Fast and they have to do is translate game ..how long going take maybe 5 or 7 months ..
Microsoft paid them to release the game on both ps3 and 360 at the same time.
think about this. do you think microsoft would allow SE to release a ff13 where the ps3 looks better than that of the xbox 360 version? its fc*king multiplatform.
No. I dont think MS would allow that! In fact I'm certain they demanded the exact opposite in order to ink the deal. Thats the kicker. I by no means stretch of the imagination think that FF13 will be bad or that it will suck just because its Multi P. I just know that early on, SE has said some things that are key to letting us know the real. Their words were; "only possible on PS3" and "In-game visuals comparible to CGI". These are words from the horses mouth. Now if something is only possible on the PS3. The only way to make it possible on a another console is to scale it back or tone it down. I dont care what anyone says or how much anyone hates the PS3. Fact is there are games that seperate its graphical prowess from the others. Mainly MGS4, Uncharted, and KZ2. People say well, These games are possible on 360 if "_______" (you fill in the blank). My question is with the 360 being on the market 1 year plus longer than the PS3 and it being the prefered console to develope for by 3rd party devs. WHY has there not been a single game on it that looks better or atleast matches Uncharted, let alone MGS4 or KZ2? Let me help you. IT...IS...NOT...POSSIBLE. If it were then it would have been done. There is a difference between them in terms of tech. The PS3 is just capable of producing better visuals. I know it, SE knows it and deep down in the heart of the most die hard 360 fanboy, he knows it to. FF13 will NOT be the game that it originally set out to be. This is something that I accepted awhile ago. I still know that it will be a great game. I just cant help but to wonder whats been changed or removed for the sake of it going multi p. Looking at the gameplay(Finally) I atleast now know the CGI inspired In game visuals SE touted back then will be MIA.
That looks incredible. First day buy.
now put that trailer on psn store and live marketplace
Oh god that gameplay looks awesome. Could this be the modern day equivalent to FF7? Sure shaping up to be, this could do the same thing for JRPGs that FF7 did in 97.
This could be final fantasy's resident evil 4...you catch my drift?
Now if we could have just got it this year this would have been great
Oh god that gameplay looks awesome. Could this be the modern day equivalent to FF7? Sure shaping up to be, this could do the same thing for JRPGs that FF7 did in 97. Okay seriously ff7 was wow im sorry but this doesnt have that wow factor for me and it started when they put the black guy in. And the game wouldve looked close to killzone 2 if it wasn't for the moneyhats. Plus i hate that it isnt turn based just to attract the action trigger happy idiots.
what the f*ck? what's wrong with a black guy in a videogame??? and anyway FFVII had BARRET. i never resort to personal insults but now i really, really want to.
There is nothing wrong with having a black guy in a videogame
It looks fantastic.. I wish I could play it right now.
if only the Japanese version has English subtitle T..T
I don't the hype behind Final Fantasy and turn based rpgs..... that concept is so 1990's and doesnt seem to have evolved since. This game looks like it has great cutscenes but man I doubt this game will bring new gamers to the franchise or evolve the genre.
Shooters are a 90s concept. Online multiplayer also a 90s concept. platformers are a 80s concept. Whats your f-ing point? All video game concepts are from the 90s, since when did there become a brand new concept in gaming this decade?
valkrya chronicals im just ganna leave that right there
Hogs of war. please check it. Valkyrie Chronicles it´s not definitely a new genre.
Well... That trailer just changed my opinion... I might buy it... After Versus that is...
I may just buy this game for the cinematics. I hate JRPGs but this looks decent. Something about the Japanese is too whimsical and overall silly but hey thats just me. Even though I only have a PS3 Mass Effect and Halo Wars (I know it is an RTS) look more exciting than this.
the gameplay is great but the command menu was almost half the screen and it blocked some view
Looks sick, I can't wait.
Battle models look just like what I expected it to look like. It also plays the same way I thought it would (except the air combos were something I didn't expect). I wasn't blown away by this trailer but at least it did show some gameplay.
Looks too sci-fi for my tastes...
I'm not really sure what to think of this. To me, this looks like an upgraded, faster version of FF12's battle system. Which is great in all, but the way this game was hyped they were making it as if this was God's gift to the rpg world. Still, it very well just might be the best RPG (at least until we see FF versus), but for some odd reason, when I look at this trailer, it feels like something is missing. I'm not sure what it is, but it feels like as good as this game might be, it feels less like a FF game
but too bad it's not coming out in the States until 2010.
it just looks amasing! the in game graphic is awesome ! its almoast like cg but its still has a difference... anyway the best looking game on ps3 definately! the ambient around the characters is stunning (battle part) WOW
Didn't look all that great for some reason. Oh well, I'm just gonna follow the rest of the sheep and probably end up buying it anyway lol
I know I'll buy it. But I can't help looking at that and say to myself it doesn't seem as "FF" as games past. A certain "spark" seems to be missing from this gameplay trailer (my opinion). It just feels distant compared to past FF games
I'll definitely buy this game. I've been waiting for this game since 2006, but I guess it won't come out in Oz until maybe middle of 2010 or maybe even late 2010 :(. Oh well...
wish they can release it this year
2010 is too far away
funny people complain about how the graphics are not that great. whats this oh. its the first FF on next gen. Hmmmm. doesn't seem to look bad to me, only SDF seem to be annoyed. -nai-
In Game character models are no better than Infinite Undiscovery.... But the environments are the best I've ever seen in an RPG.
I'm curious about the story. It looks kinda complex, but I can't come into a conclusion till my first play through. Now I'm wondering if FF XIII to turn out like this, what FF Versus XIII about to bring!? God, I can't wait.
im not the biggest FF fan, but gfx does like quite remarkable..its not gonna see my money though, because i have no use for the story..i feel quite stupid though, i had FF7 along with my ps1 and i threw it away because i couldnt play it, thus why i dont like RPGs...
