FinalFantasy-XIII.net: I find it surprising that most of us forgot about Jump Festa this year. Even more surprising though is that a new Final Fantasy Versus XIII gameplay trailer has been shown there.
Damn i want this game its day-1 4-me, the other FF13 (the girlie 1) is a rental in my book 4 the very reason that "it looks like a girls game"
but FF13 versus is like the real FF13 game since it will use 1 50 gig blu ray and is the real next gen FF13 that we all want
agree FFXIII is disappointed. Just check the link out and you'll understand. http://www.online-station.n...
all aboard the hype train, FF13 is old news now
Wow. I got really excited when I read: "New Final Fantasy Versus XIII Gameplay Trailer ..." Only find out the rest of the title says: "New Final Fantasy Versus XIII Gameplay Trailer Shown at Jump Festa". Just goes to show how bad I really want this game. This game is the main reason why I bought a PS3. And yet, we dont know jack sh!t about the game. The irony....
It's exclusive, so it'll be a LOT better than FFXIII. You can count on it. @below FFXIII isn't being dismissed for being "Girlie" it's being dismissed becuase it simply will never be what SE promised (The best RPG of the generation). It's a gimped version of what could have been, and FFvXIII will be what FFXIII should have been. I'm sure FFXIII will be good, but just not as good as it could have been.
While I completely agree FFvXIII looks more appealing to my taste, to completely dismiss FFXIII and call it girlie (I'm guessing since it's main character is a girl) is kind of ignorant. FFX looked just as girlie (read: colorful) and it was pretty damn awesome. If it's solely because it has a female lead character, you have two options, FF6 (no truely main characters, but Terra would definitely be the closest thing. XIII doesn't look like it has a true focal character either) and FFX-2. FFX-2 was very girlie, FF6 is the best FF game ever made (imo). FFXIII looks nothing like FFX-2 (or 6 for that matter), so I prefer to reserve judgment on a game till after I've actually played it. The true test (since I've avoided spoilers, I don't know either way) for XIII is if they decided to make the storyline about character development or politics/lore. FFXII went with the latter and it really hurt the storyline. FFvXIII clearly (at least from what we've seen) is gonna be very strong on character development, and that is the main reason I believe it will be amazing, with other factors being the design and darker nature and of course the director.
XIII seems alright, but i cant judge until ive played it. This one being exclusive, should hopefully be developed faster. But the idea isnt to hype it too much llike we did XIII
immediately dismiss FFXIII just because it's a multiplat. It was in development since 2005, how the hell could the PS3 version have possibly been compromised, with all that time it took to make the game? Whatever, don't play it if you don't want to, it's completely your loss. You all act like the gameplay and storyline would have been exponentially better than it is now had it remained only on the PS3. What, the storyline for XIII is gonna get a little crappy towards the end because the main writer was working on the 360 version? The combat isn't as good as it could have been because the man in charge of the battle system was busying working on the 360 code? Should be happy that more people get to enjoy the Final Fantasy series, damn fanboys.
Has SE even finished making the Crystal Tools Engine yet? It's meant to be using four of the cells at once...but KZ2 is already doing this. UC2 is using all SPEs efficiently, they are never idle. @ above but SE are westernising the game unnecessarily i.e. changing the main theme song.
@camachore Really well said. Unfortunately, you're gonna end up with a million disagrees even though you are 100% correct. I can say the only thing which wouldve changed would be perhaps alterations to the graphics but that is it.
This will be the first final fantasy I'm thinking of getting day one.
but seriously.....really? i honestly do not want to hear anything about this game until they release some type of gameplay footage for everyone to see. (N4G) "New Trailer for FF verses XIII!...." (ME) Awesome, wheres the link to the footage? (N4G) "was just reviled at a private theater at....." (ME) .....are you f*cking kidding me? f*ck off with these N4G Traffic Gold BullSh*t. until i see some gameplay footage, its just another game thats coming out a year down the line. sure the CGI trailers were "amazing" but c'mon, "its going to sell 8 mil!" how the hell can you tell when we have literally seen nothing.....
Just remember that Versus is made from the original Final Fantasy VII, VIII, and kingdom heart team. You can expect A++++ Story and gameplay from the dev team. I am still going to buy the FFXIII that is coming out next year. At least it won't have an annoying main char (like VANN from FF12 *what a wimp*)
Screamed like a lil grl when I saw this title
Or Tidus I really found Tidus annoying! x) I think it was his voice or something...
The reason why people are expecting more from this title is because it will be aimed at a mature audience, something that most japanese developers do not do because gaming is still treated as something meant for kids in japan. FF13 was not aimed at a mature audience just to clarify.
Lame... i clicked thinking the video would be in the link. I feel used.
but you're setting yourself up for a kick to the groin as this could easily go multi-plat. Square Enix made the EXACT same promises about XIII. Literally almost the same spiel, word for word, about console exculsivity, using all the PS3's power, blu-ray and all that. And soon as they got a cheque from MS, they sang a different tune. Jesus, Tecmo did a similar song and dance with Quantum. I wouldn't be surprised to see Bioware pump out a PS3 Mass Effect. Lesson is, unless it's 1st/ 2nd party, it's exclusivity is totally up for grabs.
While i won't rule out the possibility of it going multiplat, i'd bet on it staying exclusive, sony probably already have the deal locked it, sony could even be giving them things that are worth more to them then a one off cheque from MS.
You seem to be an expert in Japanese culture...
will be a day 1 purhuse for me
Yeah lets diss a game before either of us have ever played it because we always know better. And now the "ff13 is gimped" has become too old for dissing, let's now call it a "girlie game" because, of course, we can rate it and make unbiased opinions without even playing it of course. But don't worry, we never "suddenly" started dissing it because it became a multiplatform game. Oh no no no. We generally loathe it because we are smart that way. It's merely a coincidence that our hate started when ff13 was announced for another platoform. No doubt. /s Even if this game never came to 360, I bought a PS3 for it anyway and I am still going to get this on PS3 because it's on one disc and it's most probably going to be superior (although nothing is confirmed yet). I would have loved to get it on 360 for the achievements though. Funny thing is, most of the haters above ^ are most definately going to get this game. So they're not only insulting S-E's intelligence but also their own intelligence... oh wait.
I agree with Chris399 on this one. I'm not holding my breath for this to stay exclusive.
versus will be amazing it appeals to us more because of the characters and the more serious darker theme. ff`13 is much more lighthearted no doubt versus yes ill say it again will be amazing
Great video. That is the exact image I have in my head when I imagine what most of the fanboy posters on this site are like.
The ps3 fanboys are looking really childish right now. Dismissing FFXIII because it's multiplat... None of us know what the game was gonna be like if it was ps3 exclusive, it might have been the exact same game. I have the japanese import and the game is nothing short of incredible. There's nothing wrong with Final Fantasy being on multiple consoles, the series started on the nes and there were 6 main canon games in the series before it made the jump over to the playstation. Another thing is that videogames are expensive as hell to make nowadays, i don't blame square for wanting to make some money. I think it's messed up that they blew off the ps3 and released a bunch of exclusive rpgs for the 360 but i dont find anything wrong in making a game that plays on both consoles. Dismiss the game all you want but all you're doing is setting yourself up to miss out on a great game. Before i get flamed for this i wanna point out that i don't even own a 360. PS3 is the console i game on the most. Be a gamer, not a blind console fanboy.
No video!??? WTH? Ah well, it's not like this game is going to arrive any time sooner. I mean, this should be ready by the time we are ready to move to PS4.
More of a Crisis Core type game. It's looking good. This have a release date? "Just remember that Versus is made from the original Final Fantasy VII, VIII, and kingdom heart team. You can expect A++++ Story and gameplay from the dev team." Minus Kingdom Hearts don't forget these guys. -Hironobu Sakaguchi -Nobuo Uematsu
Well this game IS the #1 reason why I bought the PS3. #2 on my list is split between Castlevania : lords of shadows and God of War 3. I don't really care if it goes multiplat later on. As long as it is not gimped in any ways or held back, and delivers another FF3 & FFVII type experience for me. Was it 3 that had cecil in it? I forgot, wayyy too long ago.
I think people need to get used to the idea SE games are not exclusives to the PS brand whatever it means. Probably the only factor keeping FFVS exclusive is Nomura himself, but even then he is just an employee. Never trust anything SE says. Probably they are lying. That said. I hope main FFXIII is a good game. I read a very good preview from 1UP and hopefully those new japanese PS3 owners will have an awesome ride.
how i wish this is coming out first :((((((((((
Even a small amount of information such as this makes me feel excited! I can't wait to see it for myself!
Same here. They just slowly trickle out information at these things every year.
the game will easily sell around 8m on ps3 ww with 3m-4m coming just from japan ff13 will also do around 6m on ps3 ww
8 million is too low, try 50 million, with 40 from Japan alone and the rest from the rest of the world. All that, day 1 off course.
sry dude, your sarcasm failed
Even you were able to tell I was being sarcastic... so, no.
aww heck yeah i want see the trailer ... does anyone has it.. is it on youtube??? ahh i can;t wait :( so EXCITED
I have a feeling, now that XIII has been released, there will start to be a lot more FFvXIII footage/info available, at least in Japan. They're probably pretty far along on it by now.
Incredibly excited for this. I prefer the 'darker' atmosphere of this game. Looks nice. And finally starting to get information about it wiht XIII out of the way.
You'd think they'd give FFXIII a few months. One at least.
This one is the real Final Fantasy.
It'd be nice if we could actually, you know, SEE IT?
Real time fighting, Airships, Explorable World Map,Possible day/night cycle, 50 Gig!!!! The ultimate next Gen RPG!!!!
Sounds like it eh? I cant wait to see gameplay. Hurry up SE.
im so waiting this epic i cant wait for the amazing atmosphere and the awesome soundtrack [its epic trust me ] and the characters seems to be a great cast sh!t i cant wait !! [explodes from hype ]
My heart stopped for a minute thinking we could actually see the trailer when i clicked on the news and... bummer "Final Fantasy Versus XIII gameplay trailer has been shown THERE." b!tches.
Felt the same way. I was expecting to see the trailer too.
...it's just a matter of time till someone tapes it and uploads it on youtube or somewhere else. =)
Man I want to see Final Fantasy Versus XIII gameplay wise I new it looks more better then Final Fantasy XIII and since its exclusive to PS3 Square Enix have a lot of space to work with, this means a larger game.
I doubt it will be a large improvement over FF13, probably just better lighting, physics etc. But they can focus on just 1 game and not worry about it being ported to the 360, hell they could even add so much stuff in that it requires 2 duel layered blu ray discs.
this will be the biggest game this gen. right in front of ff13 and uncharted right behind that! lets see who else can reach these heights..
i was over hype to check out the footage of versus xiii when i saw this :(
I hope its turn based and good as FFXIII please dont make it like Kingdom Heart
You know that th Kingdom Hearts people are working on it, right?
Haha you mean you hope that the 'much more action orientated' final fantasy is turn based? don't hold your breath :P also @Godmars I didn't know that :O Kingdom Hearts' fighting was alright :)
A little effort goes a long way, it's been a well known fact for a long time now that the game with be an Action-RPG that will blend FF & KH styles together and have a mature theme, just that description left me watering at the mouth first time i read it.
Don't worry just hope someone leaks it online...
Wow to everyone hating on the regular FFXIII. The regular FFXIII is the main title in the Fabula Nova Crystalis saga. I think it'll be the best one out of them all. And why is it a girlie game? Just because the lead character is a female? If that's the case, you guys are all really shallow, and reserve full judgment till you play FFXIII and you see actual gameplay footage from Versus. Wow, people.
There actually is quite a large bit of hate for XIII =(
And we all know why. Though will it make me a 360 fanboy for calling PS3 fanboys butt-hurt over nothing? Even though I only have a PS3? Mind you, my tone will change if Square decides to put the 360 version on the Western PS3 to assure "standardization." But you'll have to admit, I'll have a damn good reason to be feeling butt-hurt if that happens.
I agree with ur last part.
I'm buying XIII but i am still p1ssed about it. My main issue with it going multiplat was that there will be NO duel audio for the ps3 version despite there being plenty of room for it on the blu-ray disc, blame can be placed firmly on the 360 so why can't i be p1ssed? i have to put up with the terrible american dubbing.
I will definitely get FF13, but i knew along time ago that it would not be on par with Versus. It lacks the main ingredient, and that is a more open and explorable world.
About damn time!
Ahhh this sucks I thought this was actually the trailer instead its news about a trailer that was seen behind closed doors.
is my most anticipated for quite some time, I hope it uses that bluray to its fullist!
versus>>>>> ffXIII gimped... fact. i have faith nomura will not disappoint in this game..
Well, that's the whole idea, FFvs13 will be Awesomeness
these statement about ffxiii being gimped...yes it is gimped...but only the xbox version one does....dont kno if it would look better if it wasnt for the xbox 360 port or not but understand and reflex that if ff xiii would have fail in ps3 only, square would have been screwed for it...and their just asured not goin thru something like that...if i were them(with this crisis, i would really do the same) on topic, ff xiii is far from being a bad gimped game, already proved it, havent yet seen the end, but im in ma way, it will be enjoyable(more than u would expect for)and for ff vxiii being the true ff franchise this generation(i may differ but yes, i expect more from it than ff xiii indeeed)+ BUT FIT TO SAY, IF FF XIII DIDNT HAVE THIS KIND OF SUCCESS. then yes we would have seen ff v xiii on xbox 360 as well...SO BE GRATEFUL THAT IT DID SUCCESS THIS GREAT IN JAPAN...hopinh with my open heart this game, and birth by sleep, and the kingdom heart 3 as well, not to forget about the psp installment of the nobula cristally ff xiii.
