VG247: Square Enix has just told VG247 it has no plans to release the International Version of Final Fantasy XIII for Xbox 360 that was announced this morning in Japan for the west.
and most likely they wont just look at final mix
I can haz Versus and Agito. No need to play a slightly updated version of arguably the worst in FF history. kthxbai. @below: As if you two below me will be able to play it with Japanese texts. :)
go away hater
Its OK, the guy has no soul. He doesnt know what fun and enjoyment is. Pity him dont get angry.
Running down a hallway for 40+ hours is fun these days?
It is and it was 10 years ago when FFX released. But I guess "fun" nowadays is playing the same shooter every year and on the same maps online? eh..
Was it fun ? It beats whining about it just because its trendy
Yeah your right MGS4, UC2, and GOW3 are all so boring /sarcasm
TRY. That's all I'm asking.
FFXIII >>>> Twilight lol @ You
*sigh* Just because I have a twilight name and avatar automatically makes me a twilight fan? OK. Whatever makes you sleep at night.
I'm pretty sure it means you like Twilight in some form, yeah. :P
LOL! Why else would you have a TWILIGHT NAME and TWILIGHT DISPLAY PICTURE? Man you sure are embarassing. LOL.
@MisterNiwa Welcome to the internet. For the record, I DO NOT LIKE TWILIGHT. This is just for fun's sake since I wanted to change my old username. Hence the Kraken, instead of Cullen. But since most people who read my name are criticizing me for having a Twilight name, that must mean my attempt at making a cool username, sad to say, failed. I dont feel bad though. :) Let me just ask you, if people who like Twilight are embarassing, that must mean Kojima is embarassing too, right?
You look like my ass and I hope a Kraken will eat you in the near future.
Your ass is hot then...i would hit that
it was the worst ff? really? probably never played ffx-2. it could be ur least favorite ff but doesnt mean its the same for everyone. i know someone that thinks its their fav ff ever. personally ff9 and 12 were my least favs, 12 complimented you for figuring out how to put the controller down and fight a boss for 6 hours without doing anything your self (gambit system) ff13 was fun, i doont care if it was linear the first 30 hours, story was consistent and fun, the worst part was the begining but o well. people just say it sux because they think its the cool thing to do while they continue playing COD till the next cod comes along, then they pay for the same maps they had in the last game....idiots
I've heard that FFX-2 had a good battle system, so I guess it trumps FFXIII there. Honestly, I think it had the worst battle system out there, and I have played it enough to warrant this judgement (I platinumed it after all). I just really hated it, and I don't ever plan to play it again, which is pretty bad because most FF games I plan to or have already played multiple times. Also, the only CoD game I ever bought was CoD4, for the PC. :p
I liked Final Fantasy X-2 more than 13. That being said, I think FF13 is awesome and is my favorite RPG this gen.
lol.Wicko u platinumed it? i will admit i couldnt dare play it that long now lol. it was good, coulda been better but wasnt, cuda had more limit breaks, coulda not killed off that sexy chick randomly, but still solid. i mean I guess switching the classes constantly cud bother some, but *shrugs. at Abel and hahah tidus crying when he finds yuna is sorta funny cuz she doesnt even break a tear....that sissy pants. i just think people like to jump on the band wagon of saying ff13 is the worst game ever, that sorta annoys me. personally i cant wait till Dissidia Duodecim to come out since lighting is in it :)
If the battle system was as good as X-2 people wouldn't hate the game so much. The reason people dislike X-2 was the story and the "girl angle" which I personally enjoyed.
FFX-2 was so, so bad. I couldn't force myself to finish it. I did however finish FF13, alot better than FFX-2(worst of the series, by far)
yeah it took me about 100 hours to do it.. I don't really want to play it again. Don't get me wrong though, I'm not completely hating on FFXIII, there were some aspects I liked. Visual design was really cool and it was a good looking engine, but the rest.. I didn't like the characters (save for Sazh and possibly Lightning), story wasn't terrible but not really memorable for me either.
Being a fan of FF since the original on the NES, I am inclined to agree with you.
ffxiii too much damage been done.
In all honesty, when this comes out in Japan for the Xbox 360, can someone post a link to the sales it does after a couple of weeks? I assumed thought that a title as big as Final Fantasy (not saying it was good...it wasn't) would've made Japanese RPG lovers just get a PS3 for it. Off-Topic: Anyone know if/when Tales of Vesperia is coming to Europe/US on the PS3?
i expect japanese vesperia 360 level numbers for it personally , wich isnt much but then again they certainly aint using much money to port it over there , it's a win/win for square no matter what
They bring English dubs to Japan with the horrible Leona Lewis theme? What's the logic in that?
Little to no work. Just swap English text for Japanese text and you are done. Same as US and European version. They actually were too lazy to take out English and European subtitles anyway.
Agreed, there is no reason to release a 360 version at this point. The install base of the 360 is not that high there still. Depending on what the cost would be, would the title even break even? The game itself on the PS3 is the best looking game out there, but the game play and story were sub-par and very forgettable. This is definitely the weakest in the entire FF series next to FF II.
I remember playing FFXIII when you land in somewhere temple or something like that that was hiding in a building just before you get to Pulse. I was thinking: the story so far has been bad but now it looks like it is gonna be awesome.. a secret temple hidden..for sure they are going to reveal some complot involving traitors, the real origin of the falcie's and the war between cocoon and pulse will be revealed in a huge twist... But nothing happened, not a single thing. The story seems to be written by a 12-year old who loves jrpg. Kefka destroying the world and becoming a god, the origin of cloud and his memories, riona being possesed in the spaceship and the explanation of laguna plot, the origin of vivi, zidane and garnet and the complot of terra to destroy gaia, the origin of sin and tidus and when tidus realised that yuna is going to inmolate. What really happened in FFXIII that gives you chill?
Realising the main characters have become sworn enemies of the land they knew and loved gave me a chill Realising Ragnarok was actually a beast one of them had to become to destroy their homeland gave me a chill Seeing Fang and Vanille's village destroyed gave me a chill Unless you have the emotional complexity of a teaspoon FFXIII has many things that can make you feel sorry for its characters.
the main characters becoming sworm enemies of the land they knew and loved happened at the beginning of the game and I'll admit that it looks promising. the ragnarok thing is revealed very soon in the game also and I didn't really mind it, not a good twist for me. Also I don't know the purpose of showing them flashes of their goal if then a falcie itself is going to explain it very clear. A lame twist I think, creating lame misteries. the village of fang and vanille being destroyed.. well, it was destroyed when yu get there, you don't actually see it. If you get there when the village is alive and an enemy comes and destroyes it, that would have given me chills.
Okay, and this is news worthy to us because?
Well, that is obvious. That is because the International Edition IS the Western version of the game with an added booklet and Japanese subtitles.
were the previosu square game that got international edition got released in the west ? only one in the history of square ? i thought so ..
