I look forward to this. I really want to see what Square Enix can do with the PS3. An Final Fantasy that really pushes the PS3 (much like FFXII pushed the PS2) is all I want to see. That's the main reason I want this to stay exclusive. Just to see the results of some tight work with the Cell. Imagine an RPG with the same production values graphically and gameplay wise to Uncharted 2 or God of War III. Amazing no?

they better, or else they are going out of business.

Their lack of focus this generation and spreading themselves too thin on a myriad of average-to-mediocre games across too many systems is what has brought them into the current downward spiral we are seeing.

Also, where the f*ck is Versus XIII? At this rate, we won't see it until the launch of the PS4...

from thereapersson: "Also, where the f*ck is Versus XIII? At this rate, we won't see it until the launch of the PS4... "

hell,yea! bubbles for that. it's hard to figure them out. they wait soooooo long to bring a game out and by the time they do - only the japanese care about it. i would think they'd like to get FFv13 out before the end of 2011 - but now look at the competition they'll face from just sony exclusives! i'm very surprised the way they're dragging their heels on this one.

Only On Playstation

True FF Fans will be excited

FF 13's was an emo corridor simulator and their latest FF MMO was a total freaking failacoaster. I have no faith in this company anymore and fear for the future of the franchises like Tomb Raider and Deus Ex.

Baka-akaB2550d ago

tss again with that crap .

SE is only the new publisher . Deus ex and tomb raider were already well underway ... so not yet eidos projects truly affected by Square's input .

Hell so far , square's arrival only had positive impact on deus ex ... with their whole cgi team for some rather gorgeous cutscenes .

I'm all for trashing SE for their faults , but let's not pin global warming on them as well .

They're going to showing old footage of the game as well, but I guess that makes it new to us. :/

Square is still making a shit load of money regardless.

Hell 2009 was a record year for square in terms of pure profit

And if dragon quest X launches next year, forget about it. Not to mention 3rd birthday, another ff iv, and much more

Hmmm, Japan is about + 9 on the GMT Right? that means 11 o clock and 1 o clock in the day for me :)

VersusXIII can easily top both uncharted 3 and gow3 in overall production value story, characters, superb CG Cinematics, music and longevity not just graphics and its a Tetsuya Nomura game!!

RedDead2550d ago (Edited 2550d ago )

The reason I love most of the final fantasy series is because they normally have
1: better story/characters

2: Music, always catchy tunes and normally music that really suits characters/bosses. + world map music is always epic. Versus already has 2 great songs we know about and YOko gives out great music as seen in KH games.

3: Time, they take a while and iit's not due to getting lost in side missions(although you can do that aswell)

4: immersive worlds. Most of the time anyway.

5:graphics are usually nice and have CG these days, and square are good with CG I will give them credit for that if they deserve any credit at all this gen.

It's usually better than other games in these areas. Versus is also bringing Fun gameplay(assuming it's just a big upgrade/overhaul of KH and a mature story about war). Nomura said some places in the world will make you sad, they're riddled with war and death.

EDit----ALso you all know this is bringing back world map, airships chocobo's etc? Right? Think of it as an old FF with new gameplay and a more mature story.

j-blaze2550d ago

oh almost forgot yup they're bringing back the airships and a world map...the world will be more realistic open world with seamless and stunning battles also One of the cities is modeled after the real-life Shinjuku !
this game is gonna be stunning !

Neckbear2550d ago (Edited 2550d ago )

No wonder all the male characters look like fags.

Anyways, Square Enix is only good at pretty graphics. And, honestly, keep in mind an RPG is way more expensive to make, compared to an action game.

Hell, remember that, in cinematics alone, an RPG already covers the overall game length of most of the action/adventure/shooting games this generation.

Story? Ha! I doubt it. Just look at FFXIII. Add Nomura to the mix, and you got the most stupid, faggy and completly annoying shit you'll ever have the disgrace to play.
