HOLY SHEIT that looked better then i would ever imagine
i want this game now damnit
somebody please post some more scans that looked almost like cgi

Maybe just maybe this game can bring back my faith back in SE

rockleex2922d ago (Edited 2922d ago )

Final Fantasy rises from the ashes... and no one ever heard of WRPGs ever again.

Ahah j/k. But I do love JRPGs more. WRPGs like Oblivion usually don't have any memorable characters or plots.

AtatakaiSamurai2922d ago (Edited 2922d ago )

The haters can say all they want about how the 360 has this RAM and that RAM and how it's a better machine or the same as the PS3 but show me the games to prove this.

It's a year older and should be killing the PS3 with incredible graphics by now but it simply is not. Instead it's supporters have to look to multiplat games that haven't released yet to hope to compare to PS3 exclusives from years ago.

It's not MS or the media or anyone else killing the industry. It's the gamers who support the 360 cause if they didn't, these games wouldn't be held back and we would be getting our $60 worth.

Noctis Aftermath2922d ago


I can't wait for TGS! this has me pumped.

gaffyh2922d ago

Wow is this stuff in-game, lighting and environments look amazing.

heroicjanitor2922d ago

Do his clothes in the bottom pic look different to anyone? We can change clothes hopefully, black leather might look a bit stupid out in the hot sun:P

Legosz2922d ago

I am a bit concerned. Look how much space Final Fantasy 13 took on a bluray and look at the content of it, very linear. This game can not be all open world if the graphics are as good or better then final fantasy 13 because it would not fit on a bluray. I bet there is a big twist. If not, then great work.

karl2922d ago

unbelievable... its looks so great...

those mountains!!

FFvsXIII will no doubt be better than XIII

evrfighter2922d ago (Edited 2922d ago )


what am I lookin at a japanese fallout?

btw where can I see these amazing visuals you guys are talking about? I clicked the link saw the scans they don't look horrible. saw the comments and thought I might have been looking at the wrong game. I clicked the link again wishfully thinking I saw the wrong game the first time.

I'm an avid FF fan. I <3 final fantasy so I'm really not trying to bash it

FamilyGuy2922d ago (Edited 2922d ago )

The CGI is what was taking up so much space on FF13 Legosz

The scans look like CGI so if that truley is in-game then, even from how it looks through scans, this game is going to be beautiful.

I know scans don't give true detail but anyone use to seeing scans, like just about anyone who frequents this site, should be able to deduce how good or bad a game looks by looking at its scans.

I know you're a troll but there's nothing wrong with... changing.

evrfighter2922d ago

This is n4g where if you don't put on the fanboy goggles it makes you a troll.

FF and Twisted Metal are the only 2 reasons I own a ps3. I'm just not impressed with the scans is what I'm trying to get at. If anyone can look at those and not be reminded of fallout I'd be surprised.

ThanatosDMC2922d ago (Edited 2922d ago )

AWESOME! Looks like we only have to worry about Noctis kicking everybody's asses! He better be a badass mofo like in the trailer taking on everybody as a king should.

Btw, can anybody read any of those captions? Could somebody please translate?

DaTruth2922d ago

If you did own a PS3 there would only be one reason; So when you are trolling PS3 news(like you always are), you can say, "I own teh PS3, so it's not really trolling."

Nobody would ever buy something they seem to despise so much!

Consoldtobots2921d ago

wow Im surprised that raztad doesn't get it, just cause the 360 gets the shinier turd doesn't mean it still isn't a turd.


HolyOrangeCows2921d ago

Hopefully the combat doesn't play itself in this one.

CimmerianDrake2921d ago

He's a PC elitist who thinks PC is the Messiah to gaming and nothing can stand a chance. The game could be photo-realistic, 3D, and in resolutions the human mind can't comprehend, but as long as it's on a console evrfighter will never be "impressed".

Luckily, no one has to care what he thinks about it. I wish N4G would have "PC Elitist troll" as an option for bubbling someone down.

OT: I remember fanboys saying that the FFXIII scans showing Vanille in Gran Pulse with the Adamantoises couldn't be done because of too much going on, too much detail, blah blah blah. I'm not surprised by these scans at all.

I'm gonna hope this remains a PS3 Exclusive and Take Nomura's words that Agito XIII and The 3rd Birthday are going to be the greatest titles on the PSP ever.

TGS is gonna be great. Can't wait to see The Last Guardian in action too.

sikbeta2922d ago

I Really Hope so, FFvs13 must stay Exclusive for PS3, no-1 wants a "FF13 case" all over again...

Michael-Jackson2922d ago

hope so too. No gimpbox GROD plz...

AtatakaiSamurai2922d ago (Edited 2922d ago )

So many multiplat games have been gimped to accomadate the 360 and it's fans. Boarderlands, GTA4, RDR, RE5, etc etc ALL these games would have had much more to them with a proper hardware and software

Look at them laughing like fools about MGSR saying how it was once said MGS4 graphics couldn't run on the 360 but they ignore that fact when PS3 gamers talk about graphics we don't just talk about graphical quality but EVERYTHING that's happening on screen at once to enhance the game experience of which MGSR isn't going to be on the same scale as MGS4 was. Better graphics? sure but MGS4 was years ago shouldn't MGSR using the same engine atleast do a bit better? but MGSR will have have to keep down the scale of the sceneries and enemies on screen to make things fit into a DVD - GIMPED.

High end graphics, lighting, all kinds of particle effects, animations, AI and the amount of AI all running on one screen. The 360 gamers look to Rage and see graphics but there's nothing else in there. The game is stagnant and plain with only room to make the graphics look good but everything else has to be dumbed down to fit on a DVD.

If the gaming industry dies it is the 360 gamers are the ones who will kill gaming and it's future cause of their stubborn ignorance.

Bebedora2922d ago (Edited 2922d ago )

.DTS alone is worth the exclusivity. Try cram in DTS sound on a DVD.

kingdavid2922d ago (Edited 2922d ago )

you idiot atakai.

The only thing which would be compensated is graphics and maybe some compressed sound.

Gameplay makes games not the graphics, and you can get great games on any system. Gameplay is not gonna be gimped because of minor edge in processing power and larger disc space.

I have played funner games on the ds then both the ps3 and 360.

Get a fkn pc if you care about the graphics that much because even that is well ahead of the ps3.

Piracy is killing the gaming industry not "ignorant 360 fanboys". What a pathetic comment.

Ps ON topic, those scans look amazing. Cant wait for the game.

amilimos2922d ago

I think i could cry! OMG I cannot wait for this game. I'm sorry but this currently my most anticipated game. Here's a summary of info, news and interviews released so far for anyone interested.



RBLAZE19882922d ago

I agree with you that graphics don't make the gameplay in a game better but When you think about it. SE's decision to go on the 360 with FF13 had a lot of weight on the design of the game. They were half way through and when the decision was made. Don't you think that they looked at the 360 audience and how they prefer shooters. FF13 is nothing more than a corridor rpg. The dialogue sucks and the characters are all teenie boppy. IF you don't think the 360 influenced the development of the game then you're an idiot. Especially with MS dollars backing the jump to multiplat. Not to mention the shittier the graphics became when the game was announced for the 360.

Just watch if Versus13 stays on the PS3 like I hope then it will be the real FF13...What FF13 should have been.

This game looks awesome...a return to the good times of Jrpgs. The 360 doesn't have enough of a fanbase for these games. worldwide FF13 sold 4 million at least on ps3 and 1.2 on 360 and don't give me that bull about it not being on 360 in japan. There are barely enough 360's in japan to make a dent between those sales numbers.

raztad2922d ago

Come on, you need to slow down. To be fair GTA4, RDR RE5 and some other games are actually better on the xbox. So I wouldnt say the xbox held back the ps3 in those cases. Besides you need to be real, xbox fanbase is still larger than PS3's and it would be crazy for a multiplat publisher no to cater it.

Regarding FFVERSUS. I need to see better images or better yet a HD video but I'm suspecting that wont happen till TGS. I'm not sure why everybody is so impressed with those scans they look ok to me.

ShinMaster2922d ago (Edited 2922d ago )

It's the overall scale and amount of content.

It's not a mystery that content can be possibly cut as it has in the past with other games. This has been disclosed by a few devs and sometimes later denied as to not affect sales.

RageAgainstTheMShine2922d ago

Overall, the PlayStation family of devices PS3 and PSP will be kicking major ass this year and next!
Sony have no choice but to spread out its big guns on E3, TGS, and GamesCon.

PSP Game line up looks so awesomely compelling more than ever!

God of War Ghost of Sparta
Patapon 3
Metal Gear Peace Walker
Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep
Final Fantasy XIII Agito
Parasite Eve The 3rd Birthday
God Eater
Phantasy Star Portable 2
Persona 3
Valkyria Chronicles II
Knights in the Nightmare
Ace Combat Joint Assault
Monster Hunter Freedom 3

just to name a few.

Finally the PSP in the west is justified!

Darkshader2922d ago (Edited 2922d ago )


I'll buy Parasite Eve and Valkyria Chronicles 2. I do have Persona 2 (PS2 version) already. God of War, not sure yet if i'm going to buy it. I need to save more money for my PS3 games :)

I never thought that I would see a Final Fantasy game look like this. Versus looks to be the Final Fantasy game that i've been waiting for. Let's just hope the current single-machine development continues the way it's progressing...

Cyrax_872922d ago

I haven't bought a FF since FF10 on the PS2, this game is looking awesome. If they show this with The Last Guardian and announce another RPG at TGS, then TGS>>>E3 by far.

maddhatter1232922d ago

not only does it look far better then ff13 it fixes everything wrong with ff13. it has a better combat system(kingdom hearts style), more open enviorments an a more mature story. vs13 is what ff13 should of been but for some reason wasn't able to do. i wonder what that something was?

- All the screenshots in the interview are captured from the game running in real time.
- The movement of the clouds in the game are controlled by the physics engine in the game.
- The game employs an open field concept, so you can travel anywhere except into mountains.
- The encounter system is a mix of random and visible encounters? (Confusing point, the blog doesn't seem clear either.)
- Battles are seamless. The only loading in the game will occur when moving between very large areas. They're aiming for the ultimate in seamlessness.
- Objects along the paths of roads can be destroyed.
- Most people will not believe their eyes when they see the high quality of the battles in motion.
- The staff are highly motivated now.
- There will still be improvements and more polish on the visuals made, the visuals in the screens are the game running at the moment.

bjornbear2922d ago

is why i loved FFXIII....i love FF games but i never can get over the whole "its battle time" interruptions =(

still, here's to hoping this is the perfect evolution of FF combat system =O

Pozzle2922d ago

OMG! Now THIS is Final Fantasy. I was hit with a dose of nostalgia just looking at these scans <3

Robearboy2922d ago

It dont matter how it looks if its as boring as FF13, the repetative mondane of a chore that game was. Hell i even managed to roll a joint whilst playing that game (just click autobattle)

TROLL EATER2922d ago

yh agree. but deres much to learn from western rpgs too.

Brewski0072922d ago

FINALLY !!! Some news and info!!! Woo!, More please :) Om nom nom

THE TRUTH2922d ago (Edited 2922d ago )

Honestly I never player FF13, I just didn't have the heart to go through with playing a game I knew I would hate. Furthermore I just felt FF VS just had an art style that felt like " next generation " you know like it would be something that really moved the rpg bar. All I needed was info on how the gameplay could enhance the FF experience, its still early but so far so very good. I think we will get our 'information overload' at TGS....... let's keep our expectations realistic and hope for the very best.

MisterNiwa2922d ago

I dont care anymore if it is a multiplatform game or not, if they make it to port this game to the 360, then Im happy for them.

But jeeeeeeesuuuus, GIIIIVEEE MEEE THAAAT GAAAAMEEEEEE!!1111111111111

Qbanj692922d ago (Edited 2922d ago )

Look... I don't want to jinx or anything , and maybe I'm just overreacting... But the scan overlooking the mountain reminded me of Final Fantasy 7.

deafwing2922d ago

I was starting to think that after all the negative from FFXIII, that maybe square enix was going to axe this bad boy .. reminds me a little of FF XII (but that's not a problem).

Hanif-8762922d ago (Edited 2922d ago )

Final Fantasy Versus XIII cutscene's are in-engine and they look considerably better than anything FFXIII showed and are closer to CG than you can imagine stated the creater of the game. Also, CG cutscenes used up most of FFXIII disc, not the in-game assets. Hence if in-engine cutscenes are used it probably won't even fill a single layer blu-ray let alone a dual-layered one. Therefore, this game has unlimited potential to be the best in the Final Fantasy series there are so many paths they can take with it and it being a PS3 exclusive they can take advantage of the system with 50GB of disc space at their disposal. Square Enix was like Polyphony Digital back in the day always finding ways to get the most out of the system and delivering a quality product...lets just hope that they've returned to their roots and they can get some respect and dignity back with Final Fantasy Versus XIII.

iamtehpwn2922d ago

Has made this best look RPG of all time, if not one of the best looking games ever.

There should be more than enough time for Nomura's team to implement MLAA tech and if all goes well, Versus will be the first proper FF entry for this gen
