Craig Hasselback writes: "Looks like Microsoft can't keep the wraps on anything as we're getting word that Square/Enix is set to announce two new releases for the Xbox 360 at June's E3. One of the releases is a much anticipated RPG sequel from the experienced developers at tri-Ace. The other is a compilation disc of two hits."

Either a time exclusive or will come out the same time as the PS3. Well, nothing's set on stone yet, so gotta wait for E3. I'm just happy that Valkyrie Profile 3 exist.
GunShotEddy  +   2060d ago
It has to hit PS3. That would have been like GTA 4 not coming to PS3. It will probably the same time, not even timed exclusive.

About time. tri-Ace is so awesome. It should be multi-platform, because I think lost odyssey is the only 360 exclusive they've done. Did they do that one? AHHH, I can't think. too excited!

@BattersUp Lost Odyssey was Mistwalker. You are thinking of infinite Undiscovery.

Hmmm as long as they not as bad as DS games.. Doubt after poor sales of FFXIII compared to ps3 version they would do the exclusive thing again especially with poor 360 sales in Japan. I also think MS themselves have given up throwing money at Japan as its a dead horse for them and theres not much profit especially not in this series compared to the big boys like FF. I can see MS rather throwing money at FF14 than this.. So multi plat all the way but hey I could be wrong. Please don't use SO4 as an example of an arguement though as PS3 version came out nearly 2 years later and timed exclusives have proven that they sell a lot better on initial consoles as dual console owners wont buy twice.

I don't understand why Square-Enix would release a Breath of Fire compilation? Breath of Fire is a Capcom series. Squaresoft published the first one in the West, but not the second (or any of the others), and Capcom owns the property. Doesn't seem right.

Also, this statement "Showing at one companies press conference likely means timed-exclusive only in this day and age." isn't really true, either. I mean, Metal Gear Rising was announced at MS's conference last year with no mention of PS3, but we all know that it's coming to PS3 as well.

I'm not saying you're wrong or anything, but can you provide a link to where you got to numbers from?

If you added the Japanese numbers then it should be more than that since the game is exclusive over there and had already sold 2mil before it released on the X360.

Anyway, you can't use the Japanese numbers to justify "how poorly the X360 version sold comparatively to the PS3 version". It's a bit unfair don't you think?

The 360 version wasn't available in Japan.

A fair comparison would be US/Europe comparison which would be 360 (1 million) and PS3 (1.5 million). Nobody can say that the 360 version wasn't successful because it was.

hay  +   2060d ago
@Murderdolls: How fair is comparing worldwide sales excluding one region for one console? It's as fair as comparing console sales while one of them has one year headstart. Oooh, wait...

And about 1m sales. Fanboys downplay PS3 exclusives when they hit 1m describing them as flops yet you defend 1m game on Box. Double standards? Hypocrisy? Both!

Wow that's real dedication. Why would you dismiss a game because it's not a PS3 exclusive?
Being exclusive wouldn't make the game better or worse all of a sudden.

If you really want to talk about the year head start, then we should also talk about the whole generation headstart as well (in fact two gens). This will get us nowhere and we'll keep arguing back and forth so please just drop it.

Look, I'll try to break this down into its base elements here.

Do you think publishers only look at one region for sales or projected sales?

You can break it down by region all you want, but publishers don't, there's no point. Fact is, Final Fantasy XIII has sold over 3 times more copies than the 360 version. Even if it was released in Japan for 360, do you really think its sales would have been note worthy?

Just because certain people seem to think US = World doesn't mean it really works that way. Japan doesn't matter, except it has, as predicted by myself and others a LONG time ago, over 50% of the worldwide sales of the game.
van-essa  +   2060d ago
publishers aren't completely stupid either.
You can't sell a game if you don't release it. By your logic, Halo will never come to the PS3 because it has sold 0 copies so far.

I seriously doubt square would make this exclusive, chances are microsoft will make it look like it's exclusive but it turns out to be multiplat(example:Metal gear rising).

Although i don't doubt their stupidity, it could very well be exclusive because as one famous person said "The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits." and the way square have been since the merge with Enix indicates to me that they are by no means geniuses.
Stealth20k  +   2060d ago
I agree its another metal gear solid rising. Its not going to be exclusive if square wants to make any money on the game.

Gue1  +   2060d ago
Valkyrie Profile sequel and Breath of Fire compilation with slightly upgraded graphics all exclusively for the X360? Are you fukin kidding me!? No fukin way! Fuk! This seriously piss me off...

I still remember when Square said: "our only focus are the Wii and PS3" but beside FFXIII all their games have been either timed exclusives like Star Ocean IV or exclusives like Infinite Undiscovery for the X360. I mean, what's worse, SquareEnix selling out or M$ throwing money at dev and ruining gaming for everybody else? And apparently their strategy is working because they are still in second place.

Seriously, I would liked M$ if the company weren't like this but they been always like this. Just look at the monopoly they have on the PC market... Offering sub-par OS like Vista but stil number 1? Everybody's in M$ pocket it seems...

Anyway back to FFVII because after FFXIII I didn't have anything else to play beside sh1tty Jrpgs's like Star Ocean IV and Ressonace of Fate which is pretty crappy and dull too. I don't play Jrpgs's just because they have a good battle system, they need to be more than that.

The point piratetom is trying to make is that while it wasn't released in Japan, FF13 sales are still close to where they would be if it had as the proportion of the incredibly small 360 user base in japan that would have bought this would be almost negligible!!!

So the point is that if it released on the 360 in japan or not it would NOT have made a difference thus sales numbers currently are still a close representation of a true worldwide preference!
gaffyh  +   2059d ago
@fox02 - Valkyria Chronicles has actually sold more than Lost Odyssey too, and FF13 PS3 exclusive in Japan has sold more than LO worldwide, which is sad really because LO is a better game (imo).

Valkyrie Profile is as popular in Japan at Star Ocean and look how that did.

Who cares if it is exclusive, as long as 360 gets it, what would normally have been a PS exclusive last generation
MS has really destroyed every single reason to get a PS3, only FF13vs remains, but that is 100% coming to 360, all Square games are on 360 now

Demon's Souls - Good RPG indeed, only real game on PS3, but not anything special really, just for PS3 people that have zero other RPGs to play

Valkyria Chronicles - not an RPG, just missions

Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice - kidding, right ?

Folklore - nice action title, not RPG

So, zero reasons to buy a PS3 for me, of course i liked Demon Soul, but i would never buy a system for it

& btw most RPG that first appear on xbox moved to PS3 as well & much-much better with improved visuals & extra content some nice examples is:

Eternal Sonata
Star Ocean: The Last Hope International

and ofc no need to say about the superiority of almost any multiplatform title on PS3... FFXIII any1?

About FFvsXIII coming to xbox keep dreaming.. first of all there is no way for crapbox to withstand this game with the world map and crazy visuals.. it's a PS3 only title get used to it you will never play it unless ofc you buy a PS3..

Doesn't mean it won't be PS3 exclusive. The 360 got The Last Remnant as on exclusive so the PS3 deserves one as well.

SE wanted to expand the user base for FF XIII to get more people to play the game but looking at previous games and all it did was divide the user base and not get many new people. There bread and butter is still Japan where most of their money comes from and people will still jump to the PS3 to play FF V XII.

SCEE  +   2060d ago
Another disproportionate and questionable move by Microsoft & Square-Enix.

SCEE seriously questions their allocation of funds, instead of taking the correct route and securing their own first party studios to enhance the gaming experience on their console, they waste funds on securing franchises that have jumped the shark.

Valkyrie Profile will be far superior on PlayStation®3 due to it's structure to produce grand scale games, with the Cell Processor and the RSX chips coexisting together to function some of the best titles the world has ever seen, PlayStation®3 gives the gamer the ultimate entertainment value that at one point was only a dream.

Xbox 360 on the other hand is a clunky and trashy device which fails to perform even the most simplest functions, as expected as it is, it's still humiliating for Micro$oft Slaves to know that even if you squint your eyes, Valkyrie Profile will look nowhere close to the quality it's PS3 counterpart provides on the television screen.

This is what you wanted Micro$oft Slaves, now drown in your own humility and misery, enjoy your inferior copy of Valkyrie Profile and appreciate your luck, if this game was on the PS2, it would probably produce superior cutscenes, gameplay & graphics & sell more copies than your piss-poor version ever will.

Happy Beta Testing.

You guys do remember that its Nomura who's behind Versus right? This guy wants to marry the PS3.(Not really) That's how much he loves the PS3. Any game Nomura is in charge of, you can basically guarentee it will be PS3 exclusive. So anyhopes of getting a main KH game on 360/Wii.....nah. But spin offs a definate for sure. Also Sony does not care if 360 gets a SE game you know why? Because they own some of SE. So think about 1million 360 FFXIII = money in SE/Sonys bank. Its a win/win situation for them really. You really though Sony would let XIII slip that easy?

Yeah, gotta love when everybody jumps the gun and nobody actually reads the news
Think about it, people:

- Valkyrie Profile, a Japanese Role Playing Game from triAce, announced at the E3, an American Event, when every other triAce game over the last ten years has always been unveiled either during TGS or very close to TGS in magazines.

- A Breath of Fire remake/porting like the FFI-II one on PSP, but ON DISC, and for X360? BoFII is already on Virtual Console, people. It wouldn't make sense as a XBLA title, go figure. ._.

This site is just trying to net some hits thanks to that ASKA news of last week (triAce said they're working on a game since 2009, using the updated version of the original engine they used for IU, SO4 and RoF).

Move along, folks.

Yeah, the second people see S-E and 360, it automatically equates to either "Fvck you Square" or "We get another exclusive, suck it". No one stops to think for a second that this news makes no sense at all, whatsoever. Breath of Fire compilation? Ha.

If Sony or Nomura or whoever had any say in FF not going to 360
FF13 would have NEVER EVER been on 360 in the first place

Meaning that neither Sony nor Nomura have any say in these matters, the majority of shareholders do and obviosuly they want ALL games on 360 too

So, FF13vs, like FF13, will 100% be on 360, there is not a single thread of doubt about that


Sorry, you can't be serious that xbox could not do towns, it did do FF13, even at the lower resolution, making towns is as simple as replacing those monsters in the ruined city with NPC's

Sorry but what you write makes zero sense really, FF13 has proven 360 can run the engine with minimal optimization too, when FF13vs arrives 360 will do it with 720p

BTW how am i a fanboy ? I bought FF13 for PS3 and will buy FF13vs for PS3 as well, to have all the games on one systen, i will buy the 360 version later though, when price is down or DLC arrives, mainly for the achievements

riiiiiight. just like MGS4 right?
um, wtf r u smoking? if it was like that ff14 wudnt be ps3 and pc only, if it were like that there would be any exclusives at all.

nomura loves ps3, hes been working on this game forever and is said he will only do it if he can make it exclusive, not for fanboy rights but so he can use the ps3's full capabilties or atleast not be hindered by the 360.

think bout it, no towns, no world maps and a sub-hd and compressed version of ff13 was 3 disc.

why wud nomura bother? he wud have to downgrade everything so drasically and remove the towns and world map for xbox's sake.

stop being a desperate fanboy, stop wishing and dreaming because thats the only way u will see versus on 360.

nomura has never gone back on his word. besides this is VP3 we r talkin bout so y did u bring up versus?

ur a moron

lmao labwarrior was riding fable 2's hard shlong for a while and now that the game was extremely underwhelming he went into full defensive mode. Im pretty sure if he didnt feel as threatened by the ps3, he wouldnt be posting crap like this. HOW DOES THAT BBC TASTE LAB?!

joemayo76  +   2060d ago
but if i remember correctly wasn't the VP series (i was lucky to get VP PS1 thats still mint b4 the insane price rise and VP2 on ps2) more of a niche RPG, i don't remember reading anything amazing about sales for either,like wasn't the first one limited to 50 000 copies?

w/e i can't wait for this to be released

The VP games sell poorly in the West and fine but definetely less than Star Ocean ones in Japan. Which makes even less sense for it to be announced at E3.
Stealth20k  +   2060d ago
If the Profile announcement is tru, its not exclusive.
Square knows that if its on the 360 exclusively it wont sell, so they wont.

Its possible its a timed exclusive, but more than likely they will release on the same day (remember the mgs 5 announcement?, because it was announced at the ms press conference first everyone thought it was exclusive but it turned out to be multiplat)

Same deal here, its either a times exclusive or its multiplat. Either way its coming out for the 360 and ps3.
-Gespenst-  +   2060d ago
I will hate squareenix forever if they make this an x360 exclusive. The previous two main games have been on the playstation, it's absolutely ignorant to release it on the x360 alone.

I've played the psx game and silmeria (the sequel) I'm not splashing out on an xbox to play the third game, so if they make this an exclusive, they can consider me lost as a buyer and a fan.
Stealth20k  +   2060d ago
Its not going to be exlusive.. it wont sel.

Remember the metal gear solid announcement? They announced it firts on the 360 so everyone thought it was exclusive but it really isnt.

This is the same deal. Its definitly multiplatform.
Stealth20k  +   2060d ago
Its not going to be exclusive,..... its just being anounced like metal gear rising (360 announcement first at there press event, then a ps3 at theres).

If square wants to make any money on the game, its going to be multiplatform.

Another attempt from ms to stall Sony`s gaming division. As long as ms pay se for the games that they don`t earn a penny on and stall some copies sold for Sony mission complete.
Qui-Gon Jim  +   2060d ago
This quote from the article::
"Showing at one companie's [sic] press conference likely means a timed-exclusive at best in this day and age."

"AT BEST"? Do we really have a hobby where it's seen as good to limit the number of people who can play a good game? Do golfers say "I'm so happy that only certain people can play on this course."? Do football fans say "It's too bad the other team's fans get to watch the Superbowl too."? I'm sure that's not the point the writer of this article was trying to make, but it certainly does seem to be the attitude that some people have.

*sigh* I'm just sick of stupid "fanboys".

jackdoe  +   2060d ago
Yeah, I honestly doubt the credibility of the site. Valkyrie Profile is essentially a niche title in the West and only met with true success in Japan. That is why announcing such a title at a Western event is extremely unlikely.
sashimi  +   2060d ago
As a JRPG fan...M$ has single handedly pissed off all the JRPG Ps3 owners with all the timed/exclusive 3rd party exclusive that has been going on this generation~_~ SE didn't help either...them useless @ss.
People always say the genre is dying blah blah blah...well its being released exclusively on xbox...or waiting for a year later to released it on the system where JRPG is actually popular! so it's expected.

Odd that it's not on PS3. I hope it's high def hand drawn sprites instead of some crappy 3D anime characters.
