The reuse of material cut from Final Fantasy XIII has been a bit of a worry for fans of the series, especially since ealy last year art director Isamu Kamikokuryo revealed enough locations had been cut from FFXIII to make a whole new game.
If content was cut, they should still use it. No sense in making a part two with 15gb just sitting in someone's desktop folder going unused.
You didnt read the article did you? No content was cut, as we already knew. It simply didnt realize because just like with any game, stuff must be chosen to be in the final product.
The point I am illustrating is: They are making a sequel and they have 15gigs of cut content that could be put into the 2nd game. It would just be cool to get all that story and scenery we missed out of the first time. I get FFXIII-2 isn't just the cut content as a new game, but they ought to put the 15gigs into 2 anyway. Especially if it will add to the universe and story.
I think you're missing the fact that nothing was cut out from FFXIII, which is clearly stated in the article you didnt read. You are just making assumptions which are wrong and based on Internet gossip. You should be ashamed of yourself.
smh he thinks we misunderstood how much content was cut -_- does it matter content was still cut point blank -_- stuff that should have been in the game wasn't and that isn't right
No content was cut out of the game as it was clearly stated in this article.
You're idea of cut content is this exp: content that was always supposed to be in the final game but was taken out due to space restrictions. What the devs description of the cut content exp: content that ended up never fleshing out due to it not working well with the flow of the game. Majority of the time this content was either only partially implemented/finished. Some of the content was only ever imagined, maybe with concept art. There is going to be cut content in every game. Most of it is because it needs to be cut to keep the game at a certain quality.
They only say this because if they came out and went 'Oh yeah XIII-2 is just XIII cut content' then Microsoft would throw a fit and the final product would be viewed in a very critical light for being made up of leftovers. XIII-2 is, i believe, just the content cut from XIII because of the 360's space limitations.
pretty much this. No business in their right mind would want to make enemies with another business that can bring in huge profits. of course they're going to say that all of the content being used is brand spanking new.
Yup that's pretty much how it is. The original Xbox360 didn't even start off with a harddrive what a joke. Blu-ray and beyond is this gens format and going multiplat was the worse thing that could happen to FF13
Well they only filled up the third disc. They had like almost 4 gig and couldve added a fourth disc like lost odyssey did.
they said there is a price hike for games over 3 disk by microsoft. a price square didnt want to pay. so square just had to cut content. games like lost oddysey and ff11 were certain exceptions MS made becuz they wanted to penetrate the japanese market.
On the PS3 fans to jump in and say 'See this is what happens when they try to make a game for the Xbox 360 that uses DVD's!!' Obviously it will not be written as well as I have it will be far more childish. But in any case similar thing happens to many games 1 I can clearly remember being Halo 2 for the original Xbox. Edit: Oh wait looks like someone beat me to the punch! Lol typical.
The only thing I thought they shouldnt of cut was lightings house . There was a level where you visit it etc etc it wad revealed early this year that it was cut from f f x iii
Yeah well I would be angry too if I paid for half a game with the other half I could of gotten if it wasn't due to the Xbox360's limitation. Good thing it was $20 a few months later in the bargain bin(FF13)
Even if it had been a PS3 exclusive with more content, there still would have been problems with the plot and the gameplay. A few extra towns and areas sadly wouldn't have fixed a repetitive, average game. People are blaming the 360 and Microsoft for FFXIII, but imo it's Square Enix's fault for not making a better game. They didn't need the PS3 to make great games in the 90s, and they shouldn't need the PS3 to make great games nowadays. They should be able to make great games, no matter what console it's on. That what developers do.
You sound like such a fanboy yourself.
Most Final fantasy fanboys probably think movie directors use every footage and shot they take, into the final product. Lol, and then im the troll.
Meh. I don't think content was cut because of the 360. I just think Square made an average game and sadly we had higher expectations for it. :( A great RPG can still be made despite the 360's limitations. Square just didn't accomplish it.
Final Fantasy 13 sucked because it was boring and even if they would've kept all the cut content it still would've been very very boring and I have no intention of picking up XIII-2 i'll wait for Final Fantasy 15
"Shut up and give us Versus XIII" - Fans
Co-sign. Hurry up and release this game so that you can we can all move on to Versus XIII already.
Does anyone honestly take Square at their word anymore? Hell, by all real indications they stared work on XIII-2 before finishing XIII.
I guess I'm the minority here because I have no complaints about FF-XIII,I loved it & I can't wait for XIII-2.XIII did have its flaws. But I & alot of people I know loved it for its different direction,I know some of you haters will disagree but I'm entitled to my opinion & I thought it was a great game!!!Lightning strikes twice!!
The game wasn't terrible, it was good. If fell short of the vision that was communicated to me via the interviews and trailers that were released before the game. The production values were excellent, especially the soundtrack and art direction, but all the complaints were true (graphical downgrade over late trailers, linear gameplay, no NPC interaction, no exploration). Still I thought the game was good just not great; and that vision could have been, no SHOULD have been great. My current hope is that Versus XIII sticks to its vision. Judging from the last trailer and video that was released it is.
@Darrius,at least you somewhat enjoyed the game & didn't trash it like everyone else here does. I also agree with you on the soundtrack,the music was awesome!
I knew the haters were going to disagree....LMAO!!
I can honestly say the first time I played it I didn't like it at all. I just went in with expectations and they were not met. Simple as that. I decided to give it another try months later, and to be honest I really enjoyed it. The second time I knew what to expect though. It was not a bad game at all and if you get far enough the battle system, I thought, was pretty good, and that was one of the main reasons I didn't like it the first time. The only real complaint I have with the game is how long it takes to get going. I know they had to ease us into the new systems, but geez not for 15 hours, but other than that I agree with you. FF13 is a pretty good game.
Yes I agree it was good but it was SSSOOOO overhyped that if it wasnt the greatest game of all time then it would be bashed.
What a load of crap Square.... I told you guys they would BS us into buying the game...
square has some weird priority issue with the final fantasy 13 clusterF***. " were gonna make three game 13,versus 13 and 13 agito." "then were gonna make 13 multi plat and push it all back more.""13 is done all enjoy" here some stuff about versus 13 and agito""agito is now type 0 and has absolutly no reason to be apart of the Fabula Nova Crystallis Final Fantasy anymore." "versus 13 screen and trailer."lets make a 13-2 instead of finishing our other projects we continually pushed back due to 13 and refuse to show to the public."13-2 is comming january 2012." versus 13 is comming out 20??. end:/mock_rant.exe
Of course they would say that they didn't use any cut material...I mean, if they did, that'd be a pretty bad PR move.
Not buying your word and your game.
