They should just rename Versus to...

FFXV

Quagmire2123d ago

Or maybe 'THE Final Fantasy'.

Tanir2123d ago

still part of the ff13 universe though the the same crystal fabula thingy lore, with f'cei's and stuff

iamtehpwn2123d ago (Edited 2123d ago )

Even though it should've been Versus' turn 1.5 years ago...I ain't even mad! I'm just glad it's actually coming out.

bobbyluv2123d ago

yes! hopefully they will have another square-enix event for the game

egidem2123d ago

Sometimes I wonder if Versus will EVER make it out alive.

Yawn...I thought it was cancelled already.

iamtehpwn2123d ago

Why would you think that when the first gameplay trailer premiered this year?

How can you say yawn when referring to Versus XIII? That's like... saying blech to cotton candy.

Godmars2902123d ago (Edited 2123d ago )

That would be the PS3 version of Last Remnant, which is still on Famicom's most wanted list.

@iamtehpwn:
Some people might think it because Square was pretty much forced to put that out.

iamtehpwn2123d ago (Edited 2123d ago )

If anything, I'm sure Square wants the game to come out faster than Nomura does, despite what has been recently said amongst fans. Square Enix knows this game is a gaurenteed hit and they're bleeding money. They probably told Nomura and his Team to put together a video to reassure fans that the game exists in a playable state, and thus that trailer. If you notice many aspects of it look unpolished, some cut scenes are not voice over yet, etc.

I think the huge brand damage to Final Fantasy with XIII and XIV made them step back for a moment though and refine Type-0 and Versus XIII even further.

But it's important to note that it's too generous to a dev...almost to an incredibly financially stupid point to let the game be in development this long. I can't wait to see what the development cost were on this game, considering it's been through over 3 engines (Start with PS2, Crystal tools/White Engine, and now it's own customized engine presumably extending from Crystal tools).

Thing is - *flamesuit on* - Square (Wada) wants it on the 360 in an attempt to generate sales even if it compromises the quality of the game.

The thing he and 360 fanboys - the coming disagrees - don't even seem capable of comprehending is that if XIII and XIV had been honestly good and not just riding the name - *They would have sold more!*

And you can't say that it wasn't compromised for the very fact the 360 version of the game was. The only point it was put on the 360 was so that it could be on the 360 - and that's not enough for a FF game. Not after FFIV during the SNES days. Of course FFVI is on the DS and PSP *now*, but much like the wholly empty argument of multi DVDs vs BR/HD-DVD - the tech just wasn't around at the time.

Edit:
Since when was Versus a PS2 game? You're thinking of XIII only.

Ah wait, I slightly misunderstood:

Finally we won't see the 'where's my versus' comments around the place.

Also interesting to note is that SE held up versus for type-0 and not for 13-2 as many people claimed

SAE2123d ago (Edited 2123d ago )

i thought they started making it in the begining of this year >.< ...

@Mario007
they should have stopped making type-0 and continue making versus , versus is much importent then the other games they are making..

Mario0072123d ago

have you seen type-0? because that game has instant win written all over it, never mind the fact that its a start for its own series.

also dont forget versus is in full production for some time now (it's going through the same thing as type-0 after third birthday was finished- in case you dont know what i mean its that type-0 was finished within a year since 3rd birthday production finished). i think nomura is more refering to informing people about versus more often now

SAE2123d ago

nope , minever seen it , i never liked final fantasy games , but versus looks and plays really amazing....

Inception2123d ago

Than SE announced FF XIII-3 and versus will be delay again
shit happens XD

shikamaroooo2123d ago

Square "enix" happened is what I would say

AsunaYuukiTheFlash2123d ago (Edited 2123d ago )

then a xbox 360 announcement @ E3 :(
