Andriasang: Director shares lots of new details on Final Fantasy XIII sister project in Famitsu interview.
. "The opening section, which showed Noctis and his driver driving down a freeway was CG (not live action footage, Famitsu confirmed), but everything from the conversation scene between Noctis and Stella was real time running on the PlayStation 3. This includes the flyby scene with the masses of buildings that precedes the combat part of the clip." --------------------------- HOLY CRAP......... The first scene where Noctis & the driver is CG, not live action footage??? O_o I download the HD trailer, and I swear to GOD that scene is looked like the real thing... The car, the background, the toll booth (?). That's crazy.
I thought it was pretty obvious that the opening was pure CG.
Anyone know anything about towns?
yea I swore they had some live action there, watched 3 times and still think they are lying lol. That is the best CG I have ever seen. @above The part with the toll booth looked like a live action shot spliced in, but apparently its all CG.
I want them to put all other projects on hold and finish this baby!!
Gosh, some people are so melodramatic.
who will only be seeing it in compressed 720P or maybe even 480P on the 360, if it ever come to the 360. Anyway, Versus is the true Final Fantasy. Large world with expansive villages. Lots of freedom, exporation, and control. Incredible CGI. Real-time battles. Character growth system. Badass character designs as well as badass villians. It just does everything right.
You think I don't have a PS3. How precious. What's next? You wanna brag about your income, the type of car you drive, your girlfriend's cup size?
@ ComboBreaker how do you know what VS' will be like? keep having those dreams buddy because it's never going to live up to your expectations.
"You think I don't have a PS3. How precious." Well, it's all your fault, man. You bash the PS3 all the time and you act like you only have a 360. How was anybody suppose to know you have a PS3 too? We're not psychic, you know. "You wanna brag about your income, the type of car you drive, your girlfriend's cup size?" Well, yeah. If I am rich and I drive a BMW, I would be bragging about it all over the internet, man. I mean, who wouldn't? Of course, I wouldn't tell you about my gf's cup size, 'cause you know, it's personal. @roflcopters "how do you know what VS' will be like?" You didn't read the article at all? Because all those informations are from the article, and some of those information can be seen in the trailer too. Come on, people. I know reading is boring, but at least watch the video. "keep having those dreams buddy..." You may say that I'm a dreamer, But I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us. And the world will be as one...
I don't make up bullshit about the PS3, is what you mean to say. The best way to tell who owns a PS3 on this site is to read their retarded comments about "the sheer processing power of the Cell." I only own a PS3 because of the exclusives. Other than that I don't really think consoles are good products.
If there's anything Square can do right it's CGI. A lot of people may not have liked the gameplay or the story... or the characters of FFXIII, but surely no one can deny how gorgeous the CGI scenes were. Versus' CGI looks even better though, pretty stunning really
"The trailer shows just a section of the game's starting country -- that is, the kingdom ruled by Noctis' father. There are also other large kingdoms, and in between them you'll find villages. Even the villages are expansive. " HD Towns? Too hard. HD Kingdoms? LOL. easy.
Wow that's a lot of info, nice to see we're getting a bit more each week (or so) for now. Mind you I wouldn't mind a release date but I won't push it knowing that that's probably still another while away. :P
Yeah thats a lot of info and im glad we know so much more about the game finally i wish we had a release date.
Not bad SE not bad...Once they say that the game will be free-world roam I will die of happiness. Don't let me down SE
this is the FF game the fans have been waiting for this gen, cant wait to play this beast.
I maintain that Nomura is the only inspired designer left at Square-Enix. I also maintain that's because they refuse to let new blood try things out in Japan, as is common place everywhere else.
Hot damn...can't wait for this game.
the question remain why its taking so long i mean ff13 is already getting a sequel.
That no one wants...i mean..honestly.
"There are also other large kingdoms, and in between them you'll find villages. Even the villages are expansive. Nomura was once again surprised by the size when checking the game." Sweet, towns check, now for open world and more expansive and in depth stats.
I'm hoping this one turns out better than 13 or 14 did.
Finally, a Final Fantasy I've been waiting for. It's been a half a decade since I've played one.
my expectations for this game are slowly rising... i hope its gd enough to get rid of the bad taste ffxiii left me with
he also confirmed that you'll be able to ride Magitek Armor mecha and Chocobos. Oh yes bringing it back to FFVI
please be good, please be good, please be good, please be good...
Well the CGI looked superb but the real-time graphics aren't all that, I mean it looks good but that's about it.
Agreed it just does not look as great; they took far too long to release anything and when they finally did it just looked outdated, especially for a PS3 exclusive.
lmao you guys are starting pretty early don't you think? The game doesn't even have a release date yet.
I guess, but when you consider everything that they are putting in to the game, surely you can forgive that right?. I mean, the guy just confirmed towns. Huge ones, that you could scale to the top of. Not to mention all of the weapons you can use and so on and so forth. besides, isn't today's top article about games with good graphics and nothing else. I'd say that this is a blessing in disguise. Personally, I think the graphics look good. They compliment the art and story well.
totally, id rather have a great ff game with wii level graphics but good art direction than a mediocre one with uncharted graphics any day of the week
Most the 50GB of space will be taken up by CGI and the rest would be the actual game, and for a game that's worked on for so long of course I would be disappointed with how it looks right now.
ultimate revenge: if they had to update every asset and the engines effects everytime a game came out and raised the bar then it would just never ever get released one factor of ff13s inconsistancy is they were still trying to get the engine as pretty as people were hopeing instead of being able to focus resources on content (i'm pretty sure the datalog was basically a catalogue of what should have been as that was the only way to get any coherense/continuity out of the story and locations), i remember a few interviews with artists saying things along the lines of 'all i do is polish rocks all day' haha your standards are impossibly high!
Everyone seems to be only interested in the fact that the battle systems is possibly a bit like Kingdom Hearts; just do everyone a favour and announce a KH Game coming to consoles.
Versus is obviously nomura's toy to test the ps3 and see what he can do, after its done KH3 will come to the ps3 with all the knowledge he has. also it will probably use the versus Engine so that will make it come quicker. im glad versus is coming out. and besides, this game will shut everyone up who thinks he cant make anything but kingdom hearts
cant get more epic than this
wow I'm really impressed that opening scene had to be one of the most impressive if not the best CG movie i have ever seen, and the gameplay was no slouch either hopefully this project comes together for a another enthralling adventure from square...don't let me down guys
