It appears that Final Fantasy Versus XIII is still a PS3 exclusive, contrary to recent rumors.
now im happy i dont care what anybody says but SE havent given the ps3 crowd any exclusief and this is just the first. the ps3 deserves this
"Versus is confirmed as PS3 only, according to FF-Reunion." Hell yeah!
Not simply because it remains exclusive, but because they were keeping the game under such a tight lid that I was beginning to wonder if they were still bothering to forge ahead with development. I'm really excited to hear more on this game as the year progresses!
I think they're going to push FF13-2 since it's coming out before FFv13. It doesn't seem like they want to even release the damn game.
Well, as much as I don't want that to be true, I wouldn't be surprised if that were the case. Square Enix would rather concentrate on making mediocre multiplat games instead of trying to release a PS3-exclusive title in a relevant time frame.
"“This is a fantasy based reality,”" What kind of nonsense is this? O it's FF, never mind

well after there last two abominations...I won't expect much SE has just about shattered its reputation of delivering quality RPG's. Wonder if this will be the final nail in the coffin.
This is different, evrfighter. Nomura is taking his own approach to the series, and he doesn't have SE mucking things up by pushing a multiplat agenda and trying to linearize everything. This is going to be an open-ended FF, the way fans were clamoring for in the beginning with FFXIII.
THIS DUDE WOULD CERTAINLY BE HAPPY
".... for now"? ".... in Japan"? I don't trust SE, so I'm waiting for one of those scenarios But I really wish it remained exclusive. It is my opinion that most of this gen's best games have been exclusive. I bought each console banking on exclusives to push the consoles to new limits like Gears, GoWIII, Uncharted, and MGS4 have done. Of course there are exceptions like ME2, RDR, the AC games, but those are from exceptional developers. Square was in that top class - when near every game released the two previous generations was triple A quality - I can't place them in that class anymore. SE fell off... waaaaay off. I think SE is the type of organization that really needs to focus their top talent and resources on one system to get amazing results. When FFXIII was gutted and stripped down as was reported, something's going on. I think being multiplatform had a lot to do with it... more specifically, counting on PS3's storage space then finding out that it's going to 360 as well. And we've all heard the stories of devs / publishers struggling to keep the disc numbers down due to MS fees. It's not my money, but I really feel that SE should either keep it exclusive or pony up the money for all of the extra disks needed to makes this game really special. No gutted towns, lessened video / audio quality, or SE devs making statements that enough content to make another game was removed (which I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out to be FFXIII 2). And to add... SE seems to only care about money now. So much so, that they will keep exclusives on 360 when they know the vast majority of their fans are on Playstations or Nintendo consoles. The only way that I see this game remaining exclusive to PS3, is if Nomura pitches a fit or Sony throws them some money (more than what MS is offering... yeah right) @ redwolf Whoa!! Great find! Is this guy for real? Sounds like me, but he's less nerdy :)
I wouldnt put much stock in it. SE said FF13 was exclusive right up till E3 when they said it be on the xbox too. Then they said it be ps3 exclusive in japan and in the end the released it on the xbox in japan too. At best its a timed exclusive
haven't you seen the 6 min trailer? its not surprising its exclusive...looks like an exclusive (you know that weird PS3 exclusive vibe you get) =)
Remember this? noctis lucis caelum = NOMULA IS SCE CULTIC :D
Nomura is devoted to Sony Computer Entertainment. :)
Dark light Sky? Looks like that is a latin based name.
I seriously think Sony has the money down for versus 13. they see the potential of this game and want it to remain exclusive.
They paid for FFXIII development and still got screwed.
Haven't heard of them paying Square Enix ANYTHING this generation.
Famitsu said that MS had to pay for the breach of contract for Square-Enix making the gaming multiplat....Also at one point sony was also marketing FFXIII in Japan.....that stopped though.
ps3 exclusive in japan only. see what i did there?
the picture say worldwide
lol, you got owned son.
yes we see what u did there u just got owned HARD. sit plz.
wow easy there, go watch the new trailer, "For Playstation 3" is all I saw. dumbass fangirls
Well, hope everyone can sleep soundly knowing that only people with PS3s can play this video game. If that was on your top 10 worries in life at the moment, well, you should be happy cause you have a very very easy life.
Maybe square enix is really trying to get their sh*t together. Their claiming ff13-2 is going to fix things that were wrong with ff13 and they kept versus an exclusive. Looks like the death threats worked lol. But yea. Ff13-2 is releasing 1 year after 13...anyone find that a little odd how quick the turn around time is. Looks like they had some extra content that was cut from development cause it couldn't fit on the 360. J/k guys j/k idc anymore about that true or not, all that matters is that versus 13 stays on track as an exclusive. It's been in development for almost half a decade!
Yeah they say it's still an exclusive.....but SE said the same about FF13.....you guys ain't foolin me twice...I'll believe it when I see it.
you can say that again
i really just want it to be as awesome as the trailers make it out to be
wait for E3 before celebrating, after that event is gone then you can dance
Until it gets delayed till 2012 and you come back here posting after E3 telling us to wait till TGS or E3 2012.
I will only move the goal post if SE moves it first, but in Nomura we trust
GOOD! I had the cold shower ready too. Let's celebrate PS3 brothers!
yes will celebrate with bonefire using xbox 360 to start it course
. : (
im happy that counts peace out
good news, great for the game and the series in general
Empty promise when the game won't be coming out till...indefinitely.
PS3 exclusive - its how it should be
I couldn't agree more.
What rumours suggested this game was coming to 360, people on this site or a full of shit. Only retarded fanboys kept saying it and dumb mods on n4g kept trying to find sites that suggested. It never once came out of enix that the game was going 360
I really want to know what the agenda of the moderation staff is that they had to resort to approving such "rumors".
Well, a rumour is just that, a rumor. Until it's confirmed or refuted it's not a fact, something many seem to forget...
Good. And here I thought the game will be announced as multiplat today.
I said this many times , why would the Japanese announce it Multi at a Japanese conference? SE wouldnt make it out alive at that conference.
wait for E3
lmfao. Wow. TWO parts of Final Fantasy XIII are able to be released for BOTH Xbox360 AND PS3 in the time it's taking them to bring out Versus XIII that is exclusively for PS3. Someone please tell me why the eff it's taking them so long.
Sonys first party studios take 4-5years to develop there first games for the PS3 because they take the cell into consideration and build there games around that aswell as the rest of the PS3 so thats probably why. Once they have made Versus it will only take them 1year or 2 to develop games for the PS3 cause they would already have there original build. So I pressume they just want to get the most out of the PS3 and square are also running on a new Graphics Engine. I just hope in developing this game they make a huge profit on it and alot of 360 users go out and get a PS3 for it because the developers deserve it especially if the game delivers.
http://www.youtube.com/watc... This will hold me over until I get to see it in HD on the 20th. And it goes with my previous thought, this game will be the Uncharted 2/3 of Final Fantasy games, and jRPG's.
When i first saw the trailer for it I thought OMG not because of how it looks but because of how the story looked, it looked dark and gritty the kinda stories I like. The references to uncharted arent necessary lets just hope the game Plays aswell as it looks
According to another article(in the pending section) the game is will not only be exclusive, but will be released in 2012, worldwide.(awesome!) Edit: false alarm people, the article I'm referring to is supposedly bogus.
Is the Versus date(year) known at all? Don't be surprised if they name it FF15
good, now people can stop spreading false rumors
-_-* My reaction to this is still that due to FFXIII-2 announcement. They better not screw up this one.
the blue print for a better ff13 is the complaint of fans. they have to try really hard to fail.
Answer is no!!! Just wait and see because Square Enix likes money especially American dollars;)
"While you’re waiting, bask in the knowledge that Final Fantasy XIII-2 has been confirmed, and that Tetsuya Nomura has firmly stated that Final Fantasy Versus XIII will remain a PS3 exclusive." From the words of Tetsuya Nomura himself today. BTW I trust in Nomura
care.. can they just release it, and can it be GOOD?
The power of blu-ray
maybe even so epic it will be on 2 blu-rays
Tetsuya Nomura you could not be more of an honor to your family. Your family will not kick you out because you did the honorable thing here. Get it cause hes asian.
What i want from FFv13, exponible towns/citys, bounty bored (like FF12), SHOPS, party control early in the story, NO F*UCKING CHILDREN CHARACTERS!!!!!!!! (or at least in the party) 100+ hour campaign
"lmfao. Wow. TWO parts of Final Fantasy XIII are able to be released for BOTH Xbox360 AND PS3 in the time it's taking them to bring out Versus XIII that is exclusively for PS3. Someone please tell me why the eff it's taking them so long. " Lets look at some facts FFXIII-2 is 2011 release,fall release of course That means that Versus will be nowhere close to that date...fall 2012 Almost 2 years from now Personally i think that square will rename it as FF15...3DS release is possible too,lol 2 years is a long time
They should rename this to FF15 since FF13 is getting a sequel. I wouldn't connect the two games, theres no point
Guess they learned from the mistakes that were made with FFXIII. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for multi-platform games, but in this case, too much was sacraficed in order to make the game run properly on the 360. Some games are just better sticking to one platform, and FFXIII was one of those games. If Versus is allowed to live up to it's potential, we could be looking at one of the best JRPG's in a while:)
