Good, I hope Versus remains exclusive.

NYC_Gamer2954d ago (Edited 2954d ago )

would you bash the game if went multiplat?

Edit:
why disagree with his comment with out reason

All_4_One2954d ago (Edited 2954d ago )

No, I would just become less excited for it. In my opinion, PS3 exclusives are way higher quality than multi-plats, and after the mediocre FF13, its in my best interest that Versus remains exclusive.

Masamori Sumimura2954d ago (Edited 2954d ago )

yes , If final fantasy versus 13 remains exclusive to PS3 Square enix will start making Great games Once again even though they havent made none since Final Fantasy X on playstation 2 almost 10 years ago.

Doing multi-ports is a waste of time and money.

Profit > Sales

limewax2954d ago

Yeah, Because the 360 cost final fantasy 13 a whole extra section the size of gran pulse. The ps3 can do what the 360 cannot hope to do. Squeeze the best part of 50gb on 1 disc, This alone is the deciding factor of how much content can be crammed into a game. And with an RPG, having a lot of content is 1 of the most important features

Sarcasm2954d ago

Meh, I won't believe it until the game is actually out. That and there is another E3 coming, easily for another announcement.

ExplosionSauce2954d ago

As long as Versus doesn't go the route XIII took with gameplay(battle and exploration/or lack of) and storytelling. Then I'm good :)

evrfighter2954d ago (Edited 2954d ago )

at this point you expect SE to come out with anything good?

I bought ff13 for the ps3. what a f*cking joke of a game that was and a waste of $50. It was 1 of 2 reasons why I own a ps3. The other being Twisted Metal.

I bought ff14 collectors edition for my pc...Nuff said

Speaking as a gamer and not ps3 fanboy bashing like I normally would. You all know SE has lost it. Deep down you know it wasn't the 360 that made ff13 bad. It was SE, just most of you are in denial and too caught up in the fanboy flame wars to see it.

You'll buy it thinking it'll be the best thing evar. You idiots need to send SE a message. It won't happen I know but hey I said it.

after the hammer came down from the ff14 review press and community alike they got the message.

yeah because FFXiii outsold the 360's version, something like 4:1 and ps3 fans are angery.i don't think SE want to piss off their TRUE fanbase anymore then they already have.

i'm all for multiplats (because my favorite franchises have a greater chance of success).but ps3 fans feel gimped and nothings going to change their minds and SE knows this.

Godmars2902954d ago (Edited 2954d ago )

I continue to maintain the reason we're getting versus is because of the argument to take XIII multi. That the split of resources as well as management control is why the game turned out like it did.

@nickjkl:
Rumors about it going multi literally started as soon as it was announced. With Wada announcing support for the 360 over the PS3 at the same time. There's also the little detail that over a year production time was wasted on the original PS2 version of the game.

I'm saying that Wada and Nomura wanted two separate things, so FFXIII became two near separate projects.

nickjkl2954d ago

no no it didnt do you know what your saying

the way you say it is like they made the game decided to go multiplatform and then remade the entire game

Masamori Sumimura2954d ago (Edited 2954d ago )

Was Final Fantasy XIII that bad anyways? The game got a 83% Metacritic That's great for a Japanese Rpg nowadays.

Disgaea 3 Scored lower 79%
folklore scored lower 60%
White knight scored lower. 64%

Played them all , finished Almost all of them aswell.

But I've never heard anybody complain about these games turning out like they did which is ''meh'' The real problem here is that some ''fans'' are mad that FinalFantasy made it's way to Xbox360.

BrianB2954d ago

they said that 3 years ago with FF13, still its not fair to make it an exclusive , what about 360 owners ?, there just shooting themselves in the foot by making it exclusive there basicaly cutting the initial sales of this game by half. this really isnt fair

Godmars2902954d ago (Edited 2954d ago )

You want to use sales numbers as an argument but the thing is as a multi FFXIII only sold around 5 million with the PS3 carrying most of that. It only did as well as XII which was only on the PS2. Nevermind that VII sold nearly twice as on the PS1 with its chief selling point being on CD offering more than had ever been done on a cart for the SNES or N64.

There is no technical advantage to it being on the 360, where there's the possibility of it being a liability to a PS3 version should it be multi.

At this point Square needs prove that they can make a decent if not good JRPG. Something that would by word of mouth stay on the top sellers list longer than one week and do numbers like FFVII. Which were literally ten times better than XIII did on the 360 alone.

Or in other words, as many a 360 fan will tell a PS3 fanboy when Halo comes out: You want to play vsXIII - buy a PS3!

THILLREBORN2954d ago

I'm sorry but I feel that I should not have to get a gimped game so that way more gamers can play it. Now I don't mind if SE finishes the PS3 version and then decides to work on a 360 version I'm okay with that but these multiplats that cause a game to lose content simply to be ported to the 360 don't fly with me. If SE decides to only make a PS3 version then 360 owners need to either get over it or buy a PS3. There are great games on the 360 that will never come the PS3...so guess what I do buy a 360.

IronFist2954d ago

Wow, nintendo universe are lying b**tards if true, because I literally just saw their story posted 30 minutes ago, I don't think square would wise up that quickly to any rumor, especially on a non working day like saturday.

Masamori Sumimura2954d ago (Edited 2954d ago )

Remember when they said that about Fianal Fantasy XIII? Or when they said Star Ocean IV was exclusive to Xbox360 ? Do I have to tell you guys what happened then?

dude_meister2954d ago

true, but for now, the rumor is again false. Remember when they said MGS4 was going to 360? Some rumors are never going to come true, and i hope for ff fans' sake that versus stays exclusive to PS3 so that it can actually push boundaries unlike FF13.

Dac2u2954d ago (Edited 2954d ago )

Haha, that's something I would have loved to have seen come true; MGS4 on the 360. They would have had to ship that thing with 7+ DVD's. Anyone without an HDD would have been screwed.

xXxSeTTriPxXx2954d ago

you must not be a true final fantasy fan or a squaresoft fan for that matter, to ask that question.granted every final fantasy is different but somethings are a constant like towns&shops, mini games, exploration(or the sense of), side quest, a story thats well paced insead of being revealed in 10hrs, which lead to no plot twist, fully flushed out antagonist, that make you care about their motives etc.

this final fantasy was disgusting not only for the use of the name but for jrpg's in general.you literally fight through the entire game on a one way path with no real character development (except your characters), no surprises, no plot twist no shop&towns, no mini games, nothing that makes final fantasy, final fantasy.

Masamori Sumimura2954d ago

I am Not a true final fantasy? hahahah Best jokes I've heard today. Unlike you guys I came to the conclusion long ago that Square isnt the same company they were 10-15 years ago. There isnt one Great Final Fantasy game I can name that have came out in the past 10 years.

Final Fantasy X-2 lol
Final Fantasy XI mmo....
Final Fantasy XII OKAY story ,Flawed Battle System
+
Tons and Tons of OKAY Remakes on PSP and NDS and Spinoffs with chocobos and etc etc etc etc .

The only Good Final Fantasy Game I played was Crystal bearers on Nintendo Wii and the other one on NDS.

gaffyh2953d ago (Edited 2953d ago )

Well FFX came out 9 years ago, and that was pretty good. FF13 was okay, but as xXxSeTTriPxXx mentioned, the lack of all those things was a disappointment. FF7: Crisis Core is an amazing game though, one of my favourite games for PSP.

Actually, I might replay it now...

limewax2954d ago

Yeah but good luck with this one, Nomura is at the helm of the project, and Wada has tried to get him to make it multi-platform in the past however his protest was so....Erm 'different' that Wada let him do as he wanted. Basically Nomura refused to make this game for 360 in words along the lines of "If versus comes out on 360 I will chop my left arm off"

Id say thats an exclusive right there

ingiomar2954d ago

Doesn't mean its NOT going multiplatform it just means that pic was FAKE

xXxSeTTriPxXx2954d ago (Edited 2954d ago )

vagrant story, chrono cross, chrono trigger, final fantasy 6-10 (i thought ff12 was great but thats my opinion)xeno gears,kingdom hearts 1&2, Secret of Mana, Final Fantasy Tactics, Parasite Eve, Legend of Mana, Brave Fencer Musashi.you comparing a mmo and some spinoffs to this legacy of greatness shows your not a true fan of what square can achieve.

edit:i didn't even get into enix games (ff12 but its ff so i put in in with sqaresoft).these are the games that SE can make if they focus on what made them great in the 1st place instead of trying to cater to twitch shooter fans, who could care less about the genre as a whole.
