lol @ blaming Sony for the GTAIV delay.

Microsoft said it was the PS3's fault, Rockstar said it was compression issues (thanks DVD). Not to mention they were still developing the multiplayer well into 2008, months past the whole "it could be released on 360 now" date that Microsoft was crapping all over the place.

Anyways, if the Japanese version has English subtitles, I'm gonna import it, assuming it's region free like nearly every other PS3 game. Not gonna wait for them to do whatever they're gonna do on the 360 if I don't have to.

Rockstar said it was the PS3 that caused the delay and after getting so much heat from rabid fanboys they made up a number of reasons afterwards like Multi player etc. Wasn't the PS3 exclusive Japanese version of FF13 delayed?

So close to E3 you can smell the nervousness and see it.

"It's really no surprise to anybody that the PS3 was definitely a contributing factor to that," Barerra told MTV. "Now, we're neck and neck. That's not an issue anymore. But back then that was something we were taking into account."

It was widely known that RS was very fearful about finally coming out and saying this. It was also know that they were so scared they kept coming out saying how the PS3 version is coming along and on par with the 360 version when it was not in the end.

I love how PS3 fans always try to create these fictional realities on this site.

@1.3

Please post a link to that so-called "interview" you mention. I'd be willing to bet that the words "nightmare", "retarded", and "massively weaker" are nowhere to be found. Who's lying? I really hope you're not trying to pass off your personal opinions as having been said by RS, because that is what your post implies.

EDIT: If the 360 hardware is so inferior, as is your opinion, then the 360 version should have ended up being inferior to the PS3 version, despite Rockstar's best efforts. But, as we know, that did not turn out to be the case.

Microsoft Xbox 3603011d ago (Edited 3011d ago )

360 is to blame for GTA's delay and once again to blame for FF13.

OmarJA3011d ago

Like you were before GDC 09 ?...

The only who is nervous & pathetic here is you.

I did not murder him3011d ago (Edited 3011d ago )

Corridor games using copy and pasted development techniques look good on PS3 using the right engines. But most techniques and engines show PS3's true abilities that is why you see games looking pretty good like Killzone 2 but ugly as sin games like Infamous.

I thought everybody already knew this was coming in 2010 in the west? The only thing I did not expect was the fact the PS3 version for Japan was delayed or should I say the original game period! was delayed.

The PS3 version was inferior your crap/comment is null.

Not "BELIEVABLE" to you? Rockstar first said the PS3 was causing the delay and later stressed they were going to match the 360 version at some point, finally claiming they did later on. When the game released it was sub HD on PS3 with frame rate issues. The PS3 version needed a patch just after release because the game was killing PS3 literally.

Don't come at me like a rabid animal dude I only post what I see and read.

I'm sure the PS3 is effecting the release window for Final Fantasy 13 too.

xwabbit3011d ago

lol no 1 should waste time talking to i did not murder him

OmarJA3011d ago (Edited 3011d ago )

Well according to IGN, GTA4 was better on the PS3 so your comments are worthless...

inFamous is ugly ?...

Funny cause it looks better than GTA4, Fable 2, Too Human & Ninja Gaiden, not to mention the great scores it had.

Homicide3011d ago

I did not murder him is correct. Rockstar delayed the game because they were having troubles with the PS3 version, getting it online and such. Also the development for the game was going slower than the 360 version. Of course this is N4G after all, so go on and disagree.

FamilyGuy3011d ago

and was like "Nooo!" theen i reread that it said "US" release and calmed down.

Megaton3011d ago (Edited 3011d ago )

1.13 xwabbit nailed it.

Internet rule #14: Do not argue with trolls - it means that they win.

I did not murder him3011d ago (Edited 3011d ago )

Perhaps you should be talking to #1.1 I wonder if you guys disagreed with him? ;)

Selective reading in your first comment is funny. You're quoting the response to the backlash.

evrfighter3011d ago

"lol no 1 should waste time talking to i did not murder him "

for what? because he made a decent point? That's like sticking your fingers in your ears and going "LALALALLALALLA" whenever someone comes out and says something worth thinking about.

But I suppose your one of the fanboys that like to get in a circle and jerk each other off all day.

La Chance3011d ago

Get over it guys FF13 is coming to 360 and no amount of whining crying and hating will change anything.

Still freaking excited for the game.360 version for me!

Jaces3011d ago

I could see how the PS3 would be delaying a game if it was multiplat like GTAIV was.

Nobody ever said it was easier to develop for in the first place. There is no problem when it comes to matching or even surpassing any 360 version, it'll just take a little longer until developers understand and use the PS3's infrastructure more and more often.

Ignore the trolls guys, they grasp and cling on to whatever they can find that supposedly makes Sony look bad. By the way, I thought Murder said he never trolled in the PS3 stories...

tehReaper3011d ago

Honestly, these replies are rediculous.

"Blame Microsoft"?

Are you serious? I'm confident all the disagrees and bias comments are from fanboys still mad about FF13 going multi.

If you can sit there and completely ignore facts, theres something wrong. So wrong, in fact, that you guys have created an alternate reality within your minds. That's messed up. Yeah, blame Microsoft for GTA's delay even though Rockstar have been quoted saying the exact opposite. You can't blame 360 for issues that are on the PS3 and vice versa! --- No matter how you want to spin it.

As for people upset about Microsoft securing another game for their future lineup, get over it. The PS3 has a great lineup this year. Why should FF13 come out when we have Uncharted 2, Infamous, and KZ2 to play?

Alvadr3010d ago

i don't know why but the more i look into FF13 the more i try and get excied about it
the more i honestly care less about it honestly i just don't seem to care about waiting for FF13 anymore
i mean im still getting it but its no longer a game im excited about :|

anyways just wait last second square enix will find some reason to delay it

gintoki7773011d ago (Edited 3011d ago )

anyone want to help me build a time machine and go into the future and come back with a few copies of ff13 we will steal >:) then we can sell them in the underground market for $100,000 a copy.
also some copies of FF 13 versus cant forget those

Cartesian3D3011d ago

happy to see Gaming business expanding.. but it wont sell like GTA (in US)

SE must Ad FFXIII in europe and Asia.. and make a Western game for US market. who cares .. they are stupid anyway (look at their last fiscal year, some devs made 3 times more money with 1/10 investment..)

Johnny Rotten3011d ago

And this is what "stole the show" at the 2008 E3 convention?

PirateThom3011d ago

Yep, because multiplatform games define systems and are the reason for buying them.

SpoonyRedMage3011d ago (Edited 3011d ago )

PS3 fanboys seem to have a much bigger deal out of it than 360 fanboys though...

JD_Shadow3011d ago

If you understood WHY, though, you would clearly understand.

mephman3011d ago

Probably has something to do with PlayStation fanboys anticipating the game a lot more than the 360 fanboys.

evrfighter3011d ago

really? from what I've seen of LBP, R2, KZ2...It's more like ps3 fans like to argue about upcoming releases be it multiplat or exclusive then actually go out and buy them.
