they might as well include FFXIII 1 and 2 on the disc for ps3. I don't see why they wouldn't.

Shikoro2475d ago

No, because that would exceed 50GB of the dual layer Blu-ray.

Anyway, I think they better stop with doing this. People aren't stupid. They won't continue paying for stuff that could/should have been in the previous game.

They should concentrate on Versus XIII since that one is way due...

Megaman_nerd2475d ago

yeah, they should stop wasting resources and start creating new IP's like in the old days. So many terrific games like Chrono Trigger and Secret of Mana were born just in one console generation yet they can't even create a single good game this gen.

BTW let me say that The Last Remnant caught a lot of heat but it was a much better game than FFXIII, I really don't know why they port it over to the PS3. Not too long ago the game appeared on a Japanese poll about their most anticipated games which mean that there's still a market for it. =/

Final Fantasy XIII-2 sold around 2 million World Wide, which are some pretty heavy numbers, but not enough to warrant Final Fantasy XIII-3...Not to mention despite it being a good game, there isn't enough critical voices clamoring for it either. If they want to conclude the story, just give me a giant 10-15 hour DLC expansion that covers it all.

DA_SHREDDER2475d ago

despite it being a good game? Are you still talking about FF13-2? Cause I will tell you that game is by no means any good. I would even go as far to say that it's a horrible game. The game is so bad it makes me sick. The fighting system, the characters, the boring scenery, the horrible story, man Squeenix just doesn't know when enough is enough.

Nozzle2475d ago

FF13 lovers tend to think that because it's better then FF13 which lets face it ANYTHING is better then FF13, that it's good.

iamtehpwn2475d ago (Edited 2475d ago )

I don't understand how many times I must say this on this site (But hey it is N4G where you can only be a fanboy or a hater), but I did not love XIII, it was about a 6/10 for me. I do however enjoy XIII-2--and yes, there are other people who feel the same.

Nozzle2475d ago

Oh please don't like FF13....yeah ok then

In every FF13/FF13-2 article there was you defending the crap out of it, whenever someone said something you, Mika, Tanir or any other FF13 fan would say something

So maybe thats why you have to keep saying it, because your lying.

jrbeerman112474d ago (Edited 2474d ago )

since when does 2 million sales NOT warrant a sequel?!?!

Doesn't matter if this is the biggest piece of crap ever made (there is an argument to that), but business is business. People tend to forget why companies make games, and even insult companies for wanting to make money (I understand some go to far).

Why not make a XIII-3? the engine, battle system, and most of story are already in place, development on this game as opposed to a new FFXIV would be a quarter cost and time consumption.

Look at Assassins Creed, put a small team aside to make small incremental sequels ala call of duty or madden football, while the main team works on the massive new sequel to "revolutionize" (literally for AC) the franchise.

Until people stop buying these "expansion" games this will start being more the norm than the exception.

Long story short, You bet your ass they are making FFXIII-3, no one says no to 2 million units of sales with a fraction of the development cost and time.

Redempteur2474d ago (Edited 2474d ago )


you're a nice hater of ff13-2..
did you see academia ? archlyte steppe ? you call "THAT" Boring scenery ?
Anyone looking at academia 4xxAf and tell me it's boring really hasn't seen it's with statements like those that people really intrested in the games are still buying FF games and haters like you still bark for some utopia that doesn't exist..

it's just obvious you didn't play the damn game.

You'd think FF13's 6 million in sales would make a stronger case not to make FF13-3.

Then again considering all the reused assets, DLC that could be tacked on, if it only sold a million a third sequel would likely show a notable profit.

Good luck hitting 6 million again however since the president of releasing an incomplete/poor first game and followed/milking sequels will have been sent and established.

Square, could you at the *VERY* least release FFT-0 so I can - kind of - stop actively hating you... Things were once good between us. Magical.

Not only do I not know you anymore, I don't want to know you.

TheUnbiasedLion2475d ago

You took the words right out my mouth.
Me and SE are in a big rough patch in our relationship! SE better bring versus/KH out and make it good.

But sadly like being an abused person I will still keep coming back and regretting it :/

KeybladeMaster2475d ago

Square I have enjoyed our relationship and know that I will always like you but there's a time when people need to move on. Square this is one of those times. Just know it's not you it's m--...... well okay it is you. You burn through my money, the gameplay isn't as great as it used to be and I don't like being with your characters anymore. I think we'll both be happy if we take a break for a while.

^^^This is what I would say to Square Enix if Square was a woman.

stonecold32475d ago

ffvs 13 need to be out before work begins on ff13 xiii3

LX-General-Kaos2475d ago (Edited 2475d ago )

Square needs to release Final Fantasy Versus 13. Hopefully they will change then name to Final Fantasy 15 if possible. It is almost an insult to associate V13 with the original 13. I am excited for E3 to see if the game has finally gone multiplat as I assume that it eventually will.

Maybe Nintendo supporters will get lucky and become blessed with a Nintendo Wii U version of Final Fantasy Versus 13.

Rated E For Everyone

iamtehpwn2475d ago

I think if they have 2 games named Final Fantasy 14 that might cause a problem...just saying... LOL

LX-General-Kaos2475d ago (Edited 2475d ago )

Thank you for the correction. I forgot about the lame attempt at a PC MMO

But then again there are 2 games with the Final Fantasy 13 name. Though anyway I have corrected my previous statement so you wont look crazy.

"Square needs to release Final Fantasy Versus 13. Hopefully they will change then name to Final Fantasy 15 if possible"

Thank You.....least I'm not the only one who thinks this

Yes it may be differen't from traditional FF games like Versus battle system and yes I personaly did moan about this problem with FF13 but the thing is FF13 Versus have done it in a way where it looks fun and appealing. I'd take the KH battle system over a crappy "auto" one any day.

It should be renamed simple as that, I also want it not to relate it's self to FF13.

FF Agito 13 was changed to Type-0 where they tried to steer it away from the Fabula Nova Crystallis series/mytho so why can't Versus....hell it's been in development for so long they may aswell.

Besides by looking at both games they just can't be linked to each other let alone share the same universe. They look like two differen't worlds.

Redempteur2475d ago

"FF Agito 13 was changed to Type-0 where they tried to steer it away from the Fabula Nova Crystallis series/mytho so why can't Versus"

Except they didn't..Type-0 is full of l'cie , falcie and so on.. The whole mytho is in the game...

And you can bet Versus won't be any different.

Feel free to disagree but at least i talk knowing my stuff.

torchic2475d ago

how is Versus going multiplatform if Nomura himself comes out every now and then to tell people to calm their tits because the game is still exclusive?

if Agito stayed exclusive and stayed in Japan, why can't Versus? oh that's right. because people want this game to go to shit just like FFXIII did after that went multiplat. if it does go MP then it will defo go to the Wii U but at a later date.

LX-General-Kaos2475d ago (Edited 2475d ago )

So basically what you are saying is that you just dont want it to go to the XBOX 360. Am I right?

No need to hold it in.
