Square Enix have told Japanese press that there are no plans for downloadable content for the latest and greatest entry in the Final Fantasy series.
I'm not sure how DLC would even work especially Final Fantasy based on its past entries, they all have great endings that pretty much end it except for FF7 because of the movie. Hmm they could leave it out the ending or extend it like Prince of Persia.ehither that DlC for ff13 wouldn't work nor would side stories dlc because it should be in the game already like you know like the OMEGA WEAPON and challenges. Also why should there even be any DLC, they started development for the game in 2005 then made an annoucement in 2006 E3 and the game won't even be released til the end of the year. Thats like 5-4 years of development maybe 5 years and 4 months for the worldwide release as it has to go and add English voice overs then port it to Xbox360.
Square Enix already said this months ago, but some website brought up a rumor that MS is buying DLC, so they had to refute it again.
a little too early to call it the greatest entry in the series.
People always call the latest FF the greatest before it releases because all of the FF games by Square-Enix have been horrible/mediocre games so they think it can't get worse than the last game (which it always does). This will be the worst FF since FFX-2 (plus the style looks similar to it). Playing a FF made by Square-Enix is the equivalent to playing a Crash Bandicoot game made by Radical Entertainment.
Now Versus is the greatest ever.
Suikoden > FF
How about we play FF XIII before we judge it. Sure Square hasn't been on their game lately, but that doesn't mean that the new FF's won't be good. Take Free Radical (now Crytek UK) for example. The Time Splitters franchise was amazing so everyone thought Haze would be on par or better. Sadly, that didn't happen. For Square's case, let us hope the opposite, I want them to exceed my expectations.
The game is made by Square-Enix and it's guaranteed to flop. No point in making DLC for a mediocre game (though Rockstar still decided to do it with GTA4).
Really? Wow, thats surprising
GOOD. -- DLC is so annoying, its good that we will have the finished product when its finally out.
that just means that ms cant buy them off
Microsoft: *shows bag of money* Ahem...are you SURE!? Square Enix: >_> *two weeks later* Square Enix announce Xbox 360 exclusive DLC.
Seriously how dare MS spend money to bring more content to their consumers. Wait, isn't Sony spending money to bring more content to their consumers with their PSN deal. Let me guess, you think its a great move by Sony, because its completely different even though MS giving money to a MULTIPLATFORM publisher not only helps MS and their consumers, but it also helps a MULTIPLATFORM publisher improve their bottom lines. Wait, Sony doesn't pay for exclusivity, do they?
Agree. Don't forget though, MS...oh wait M$.. are the devil ;)
The only difference is that Microsoft is approaching the developers and offering money specifically. Sony's isn't approaching anyone they're offering developers money if they so chose to develop for them. A less aggressive strategy from Sony but when it comes down to money and exclusivity it's pretty much the same deal.
said there was going to be some.
Dude that was the funniest comment I have read in weeks LOL...
Sorry Microsoft, it looks like your Wild Card just got thrown out of the pile.
"Microsoft: *shows bag of money* Ahem...are you SURE!? Square Enix: $_$ " Fixed
Ok square so when is this game coming out now 2011 lol
no it has ben pushed back to 20047 lol square enix your so lame
Well, I am sure Microsoft will have plenty left now.
Final Fantasy XIII is a no is most probably a no buy for me. Square Enix have dissapointed med too much.
cool, I dont wanna pay for incomplete games... I hate that american trend
Cool now how about they finish making the game in the next few years and then we can all sit down and talk about dlc.
Good, because loyal fans I.E PS3 owners wouldn't get it.
Why have DLC when you're selling complete games in addition to the main game?
Too many people sat here at actually payed attention to HHG when he said the possibility of DLC. But this right here, SE said months ago about the game not getting any DLC. Hell, for as long as they are taking they really shouldn't do any DLC anyway.
This isn't new news. It kinda confuses me how we have had reports from random sites like Hiphopgamer saying that there will be DLC for the game and it may be XBL exclusive or some such nonsense when more then a year ago Kitase-san said that there would never be any DLC for Final Fantasy XIII because he and his team would much rather work on a totally new game as opposed to a add on. Anything they would think as DLC would just be added into the game and not used as DLC that's how they work they add as much into the game as possible so it will be as good as it can be and not have a need for DLC after it's release.
