X-Rumors is stating that the Final Fantasy XIII PS3 bundle in Japan will be a bundle for the Xbox 360 in the US, and Batman: Arkham Asylum 2 will hit stores August 3 of 2010.
I am really looking forward to this. I stopped playing the first when I met (and got my a$$ kicked) Bane. I need to finish this game. Anyone know when Square will release FF13 in JP for the 360? They may have said it wont be released but I am betting they really meant day 1 up against the PS3 version. To only release it on the 360 outside where it is being developed is crazy. They will being it out...you know they will. Maybe it will release when it gets released in the US next year. To turn down the $$ MS would be throwing at them to market it....
i need to go pick up the first B:AA. I know its awesome (LOVED the demo) but been busy with playing catch up on gaming since early 09.
Spoiler ahead. Answer: N_E_V_E_R
I rented BM:AA when they announced the sequel. The game is solid and probably the best game I've played on the unreal engine. I think I am almost complete with it... but bane was a tough fight on hard difficulty.
this is the bitbag the same people who release the HipHopGamer videos I think that says it all. They all get there same rumours from the same place.... Thin air!
An FFXIII bundle for the 360? Wouldn't it make more sense to put it on PS3?
Don't think so unless they started work right after the first one. @Below I know this, but they had to still work on the first one for a while, it didn't even make the June deadline, and was delayed for polishing. I know that RockSteady knows the engine, and all that good stuff, but I still think it will be a little while.
Well, it looks like they're re-using assets from the first game, with the same engine.
I find it very hard to believe people who can't distinguish 'their' from 'there'. Would you hire a lawyer who never went to law school? Sorry for being a 'douchebag' or lacking tact but it is what it is.
if that rumor is true, then the studio must be very good likely naughty dog for make project final so early. B:AA2 BTW!
SE's FFXIII supporting the port version over the real thing? I don't see it. Unless SE wants to seal there dooming fate.
the only people i see buying the ff13 360's are folks who collect rare items.
Or someone whos house is short on coasters.
bundle it microsoft, because no one in their right mind (unless they're a single console owning fan) would buy ff-xiii as a standalone 7 disc set. everyone i know will be being the "superior" version.
"single console owning fan"? So does that mean if you only own an Xbox 360 or PS3 you are automatically a fanboy? Various factors could influence someone, 1. What consoles they own 2. Their friends 3. Reviews 4. Achievements/Trophies JRPG's sell pretty decently on the Xbox 360, I think for Final Fantasy 13 it will all come down to advertising. The amount of people who know about the "development history" is pretty niche in the grand scheme of things.
single console owning fan = a final fantasy fan who owns one or the other console. why does everything have to come down to fanboyism? you'd have to be incredibly insecure to blow past the inherent context of what was said and revert to fanboy this fanboy that.
Ahh that makes sense, sorry about the mix up.
Sorry but JRPGs have been selling TERRIBLE on the 360 thats why SO4 is being ported to the PS3 with a superior version. Also why FF13 on the PS3 has sold more in just Japan in 1 DAY than ANY JRPG has in total on the 360 WORLDWIDE in LIFETIME sales(I don't mean put together I mean total sales worldwide). Now if that doesn't show that 360 is the worst format for JRPG's right now I don't know what is. In fact no JRPG has sold over 1 million copies on the 360 worldwide yet.
I caught my uncle looking at Peach and Bowser hentai.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ 100% Useless. Guessing all you guys bought the 1disc FF7 on PC when it released.
no, i bought the 3 disc playstation version thank you very much. why? because at the time there was only 1 version available (and don't bring up the pc port because that came later). that's not the case today now is it?
If you are a potential customer planning to purchase a videogame system bundle, will you buy a PS3 bundle or XBOX 360 bundle? Remember MS gave out $99 discounts at walmart during thanksgiving. So knowing MS, they will try hard to get a bundle deal with Square-Enix. Now to make a profit out of it, thats another question that you know the answer already.
How come nobody is complaining that a sequel is coming out so soon, and that this can be offered as DLC?....after all, Left 4 Dead 2 got A LOT of slack for it. I own a 360 but am favorable to the PS3. I was just wondering about the double standard, not trying to be a fanboy.
