FF13 Surprise is NOT Demo, Square Confirms

Square Enix PR rep Sonia Im set the internet ablase with talk of an FF13 demo by teasing for "something cool most of you can participate in a few days from now" over Twitter.

After much speculation across the net, Sonia has confirmed - again via her Twitter - that a demo is not the upcoming surprise.

Here's her tweet confirming it: "Think it's best if I set expectations for my #FFXIII tweet. It is NOT a demo. But it's cool regardless! So please don't be too disappointed"

UFFSite also confirmed this information with Square Enix PR reps, who told us that "the memo in question contains no mention of a demo." (Final Fantasy XIII, PS3, Xbox 360)

"Square changes mind, FF13 stays PS3 exclusive"

(riot breaks out)

"Square changes mind again, FF13 goes 360 exclusive, 250GB Elite & Zune bundle hits Japan"

PSN release of English subtitles for JP version of game. That would be a really "cool" surprise. ;)

Imagine if they literally get a bunch of FedEX boxes, pack them with garbage, and send it to the United States. That would be a good prank to pull. Waking up the day after Christmas and opening a box of someone else's trash.

Don't even JOKE about English subs in the Japanese version. My hopes are way too high for that already.

cyberwaffles  +   1719d ago
well it would be nice to have a demo you lousy b*tches! give a dog a bone for crying loud.

on that note, wasn't there a FF13 demo not too long ago? what happened to that?
Arnon  +   1719d ago
It's a Wii port.

Rofl.
FamilyGuy  +   1719d ago
Next best list so far
No demo confirmed so what could it be that wouldn't leaves us in major disappointment.

*FFXIII dynamic theme
*pushed up US release date
*PS3 exclusively pushed up US release date
*Japanese version with english subs/menus option
*something Home related
*FFXIII themed PS3 being released in other countries

I'd buy a dynamic theme, no questions and since it's coming this thursday it's likely to be something on the PS Store

The Chocobo pet on Xbox 360, a Chocobo costume for Home on PS3.
Kurisu  +   1719d ago
Maybe a Chocobo Ranch Home Space?!
With Chocobo stables. That would be nice :D Not that I ever really use Home that much.
AP  +   1719d ago
Maybe, but that's already been announced.
densai  +   1719d ago

DigitalAnalog  +   1719d ago
FFXIII for the 360 on 1 DVD9 disc.
WOOOOOOOTTTTTTT???

-End Statement
MajestieBeast  +   1719d ago
But then the game is 10minutes long ok all joking aside it will just be some crappy little thing like avatars for 360 and a dynamic theme for ps3.
Kurisu  +   1719d ago
A dynamic theme would be nice, actually.
Maybe they could have ones of the summons changing from normal mode to Gestalt.
ScubaSteve1  +   1719d ago
please please English subtitles in the Japanese version even though the japanese game is at $106 dollars
MajestieBeast  +   1719d ago
Ye but still i rather see a demo then a dynamic theme but i guess they are gonna wait with that and bundle with another 1 of their products.
AP  +   1719d ago
What product are they going to bundle it with, though? The only release before FF13 is Crystal Bearers.
Omega Zues  +   1719d ago
Well since its not a demo then....
it must be some pre-order stuff and it better be dam #$%^! good if not then...

prepare for epic massive disappointment.
darkpower  +   1719d ago
Exclusive DLC for the 360 version?

Hey, MS was addicted to it in 08, and they seem to think it worked for them, so why not now?
RedVsBlue  +   1719d ago
FF13VS coming to the 360 lol
lensydde  +   1719d ago
probably a dynamic theme.

or little big planet costumes XD

Home things...

U.S Release Date Pushed Up to coincide with Japan (Drool)

Another game added to the Fobula Nova Crysalis Saga?on nintendo ds lol

or maybe DLC of some sort...
Reibooi  +   1719d ago
I don't see why everyone wants English subs for the Japanese version. It makes no sense to multiple reasons.

A)No one in Japan wants English subs so why would they release them.

B) The Japanese version of the game is over 100 bucks why would you wanna pay more for that?

C) They could easily add Japanese VO as DLC to both the PS3 and the 360 and solve the problem that way(Which is FAR more likely then the Japanese version getting English subs).
