and now Square Enix have no excuses to not be working on Versus (with a full production team)

We hope....

Versus should have finshied ages ago!.

ElDorado2099d ago

It's unbelievable. I think the game was announced in 2005. We don't even have a ******* date! How is this possible? Why XIII-2, I don't get it. Why didn't they finish Versus instead of working on that piece of shit. It will be the same as XIII, maybe just a bit better, but that's about it. Versus is what we wanted all these years and they don't give us no nothing. I used to love it when their name was still Square

I find it ridiculous that people say 13 was bad and that 13-2 will be bad too but somehow VS13 will be uber awesome! Wish it would release already just to shut you people up.

D3mons0ul2099d ago

Have you seen the latest trailers for Vs13 or read any of the interviews with Nomura?

Why wouldn't you think it's gonna be awesome?

I don't think it's fair to exaggerate and say things like "piece of shit" when talking about FFXIII but I understand the animosity behind it.

iamtehpwn2099d ago (Edited 2099d ago )

Here's what I want to know.

No one had played Final Fantasy Versus XIII and yet so many people talk of it as if it's coming of the RPG Messiah. No one even knows much about it yet. As if they've played it already know it's going to be the greatest game of all time.

Don't get me wrong, I too have high expectations for Versus XIII--But you must understand, that the long development time of Versus has a lot to do with the game has transitioned between 2 engines now, many of the CGI scenes are currently being redone in real time, and Nomura, in general, works with a small team at a slow pace.

This game isn't too big of distraction. You guys forget that Kingdom Hearts 1 and Final Fantasy X-2 were also developed at roughly same time (although not releasing at the same time), you can even view a trailer for X-2 if you have Final Mix. They have enough staff to work on more than one game.

TheBlackMask2099d ago

Right....ok then

I'm guessing your a little mad because you like FF13 and the upcoming craptastic sequel, yet people are more interested in Versus.....which actually looks like the FF game we've been waiting for since last gen.

iamtehpwn2099d ago (Edited 2099d ago )

@TheBlackMask

You're calling one game you've never played crap and another game you know virtually nothing about better. That we waited 5 years to see gameplay footage of, and we're still left in the dark as what the game is really like.

And yes, I'm willing to give XIII-2 a chance because XIII had a lot of potential it didn't tap in on. I want to see how people react if XIII-2 gets great scores.

@iamtehpwn

But... we have seen gameplay. 6 minutes of it to be exact. Remember the trailer earlier this year showing gameplay of the game and the games CG. Can someone please show iamtehpwn a link to that trailer? I am on my iPhone and can't link to anything atm.

iamtehpwn2099d ago (Edited 2099d ago )

I've seen the 6 minute trailer. IT features action combat and vehicles. That still doesn't speak very much about the gameplay. If you recall, people still hyped when they first saw FFXIII's gameplay, and incredibly hyped when playing the demo and look how people viewed it at the final release.

Final Fantasy is a series I love, but how idiotic and short sighted the fans are recently, it makes me want to disassociate myself from it.

Versus has been in full production for a couple months now actually. This team will probably get to work on the next FF.

This info make every1 happy not because we want to play XIII-2 but because they might finish now at last the fcking Versus they start working on 6 years ago, absolutely ridiculous we might get a PS4 announcement before the ENG version of the game come out they took them 1 whole console lifecycle to finish 1 fcking game isnt this proof of how low SE have fallen?

Ddouble2099d ago

They announced it 6 years ago but they haven't been working on it since it was announced.

They got to work on XIII after they announced all 3 FNC then had other side projects to do like all the main PSP games, Dissidia, Kingdom Hearts, 3rd Birthday etc..

That's why Type-0 is coming out almost 2 years after XIII even though it's a PSP game.

They needed to allocate resources properly and not spread themselves thin. Announcing a game early is not a problem but if your going to take 6 years to release the game then there's something wrong behind the scenes.

You say it's proof that they've fallen, I just see it as a valuable lesson that's been learnt this gen since things are very different to last gen

CLOUD19832099d ago (Edited 2099d ago )

That's no excuse in my book sorry, the fact that things is different this generation, many studio release games at the start of the PS3 or 1-2 years later and good games best example MGS4 that imo is the best exclusive of the PS3.

You say SE spent time on other projects yeah they sure did that and nothing was worth my time the only thing they release was a bunch of failures westernized piece of crap with a horrendous story & battle system full of auto-battles and spam button fiesta from start to finish, yeah I speak for both XII & XIII, KH is not a franchise traditional JRPG fans care to play that's a game for smaller ages.

So in other words they lost time releasing crap games and delay the game most of us want to play, and that's more than enough reason to say that SE is nothing like Squaresoft was when Mr Sagakuchi lead the company, back then the company was knows for releasing only 10/10 games true Masterpieces like FFVII/Xenogears/Chrono Cross, can u tell me 1 good game Square release after the merge with Enix?

For me FFX was the last true FF anything that follow is a new bad FF that miss all the classic elements the franchise is knows and loved for, the only thing they care about now is how to compete with CoD they have gone crazy and they thing if they change the game into an fps will increase their sales and steal a pie from the teenage fps freaks that play CoD all day long online..

If the CEO dont change SE will keep singing imo Wada is one of main reason for every bad decision SE take all those years.

Vortex3D2099d ago

I'm of the few who really like FFXIII style. Even completed PS3 and X360 versions.

But with frequent release of DLCs on FFXIII-2, I'm going to wait until all the DLCs are included.

josephayal2099d ago

and Same battle system.... no thanks

TheTwelve2099d ago

Apparently, they fixed the worst parts of the battle system. But I'm not buying it until I see my friends play it.

Troll-without-Bridge2099d ago

Cool, now they can start working on that highly anticipated project...

Type-0 localization, of course.
