There's a big chance that this game may go multi-platform.

I agree with this. Why else would it have taken 5 years?
DarkBlood  +   763d ago
if it does i at least hope they just wait till the next xbox comes out that way noting is gimped when they can put it on those 25 gb discs i been hearing about

even though i prefer it remain ps3 exclusive, why? well i think you all know the answer to that

I know Tetsuya Nomura said he would NOT be doing multiplatform a while back. He saw the problems XIII suffered because of this, and thought it was quote "A mistake".

So I really don't think a game he's in charge of would be multiplatform, unless Enix decides to overpower him in that decision.

Though... He DID say that being ported to the 360 after the game has been made, would be an acceptable idea.

Do you guys honestly belive there isnt a chance that itll be ported to the 360. I mean considering how long in development its in do you think square enix will take the profit loss from it.

going multiplat?
this game is very close to be the most overhyped vaporware of all time!
RedDead  +   763d ago
While I agree...I'd be shocked if Versus stays exclusive. I want it to stay exclusive but come on lets be realistic here. This is S-E.

Also, this game has loads of info released about it. Everything you need to know without going into spoiler territory. Gameplay, Map, Airships, cars, exploration(capture summons and ****) Etc. They just need a release date for the bloody thing. The gameplay vid was over a year ago and all...Voice recording began over a year ago etc

And yeah Rai down there, hopefully it plays closer to KH bbs. KH2 has the worst KH battle system I think. I just hope it doesn't have nothing but battles like KH. The battle system in KH is good. The enemies are just repetitive though. The battle system shines in boss battles. Specially in KH1 and bbs

Noticing people trying to be clever with the whole "vapourware" and "multiplatform" argument and using points like "it's been 5 years so it must be going multi". No evidence to support these wild assumptions I'm afraid. Square just haven't been concentrating on it as much as we all hoped, until early this year.

The "vapourware" argument. There's a ton of info and released footage so far, you only have to look for it. http://www.finalfantasy-fxn...

And going "multiplatform": well you only have to read up about the scope of the game, and the fact that it's been developed in a bespoke manner for PS3 since its inception, and only recently has used the next-gen Luminous engine in areas to improve lighting. How can they be sure what they have already developed will even work and the game's pace will be suitable with 2+ discs. It's obvious it will be on more than one, so think reasonably and ask yourself, will Nomura destroy the flow of the game and its design to consider the 360? Not worth the additional ballache - the game is already behind schedule, and with the team also working on FFX HD for PS3 & Vita that wouldn't help matters. So there isn't a "big chance" it will go multi, a slight one. It's something Square would have considered and decided upon many months ago and most likely we'd already know about it.

And... The game hasn't been in development for 6 years. It halted quite dramatically when they were working on XIII, XIII-2 and other games in the Square Enix library. This game has taken a back seat to everything else so don't blame anyone else but Square and their priorities. The most important thing to realise is that the game was announced far too early. Just like The Last Guardian and just like Gran Turismo 5.

Well that's the end of my input. Make what you will.

you sir own the interwebs. an agree and bubble for clearly pointing out that this game still exists, and is still, and will stay exclusive. I've been singing the exact same song for the past 2/3 years but people for some odd reason don't get it. another fact to point out is that SE could've easily made Agito XIII multiplatform (for DS/3DS) but they kept it exclusive.

I cannot wait for this game don't care what anyone says. truth is Sony sold a shitload of PS3's based on the first CG trailers of Versus, my PS3 being one of them. Nomura's updates are very promising, and if he continues on the same path then we might have one of the best games this gen. Versus XIII platinum is going to sit very nicely next to my XIII platinum :)

looking amazing..sure like most square games, but if it plays like KH2 then I'm going to stay clear of this game.

I've suddenly become very interested in this game after helping a buddy beat FFXIII-2. Still though, a game in the works for 6 years is a LONG time. If either Final Fantasy Versus XIII or Agent or The Last Guardian shows up at Sony's E3 this year, it'll be pretty major.

This game must stay p3 exclusive, and the article really didn't tell us anything we didn't already know so I wouldn't call it news... I believe that to multiplatform would cause a defined display of how weak the 360 is compared to p3, not only visually but in print format as well. As stated by others we would end up seeing a 4+ disc game and on 360 the install would almost have to be mandatory. Let alone that the system simply dos not have the kind of power it needs. And being that it has been desiged on the p3 means that a platform convert would be tragic to the overall functionality.

The game is coming that much we know, the problem is that Squarenix announced this game far far too early when according to Nomura nothing was actually done other than that concept trailer.

For some questionable reasons Squarenix is not making the game a priority as it should be. Rather it is constantly being put on the backburner behind other projects that should have not been that important.

Another problem is Nomura is in charge of too many projects at the same time. From working on 3rd Birthday, FF Type-0, Kingdom Hearts 3D and whatever else he has his hands in. What we have seen of Final Fantasy Versus looks extremely promising which is why i hope for now it stays a PS3 exclusive. If they want to port it later go ahead but i wanna see one game from Squarenix at least that uses what the PS3 has.

This is just my personal opinion and somewhat of a conspiracy theory and not taken seriously.

I believe the game is practically done but Squarenix is holding it back on purpose fearing backlash they may receive from the fanbase.

We all know the development hell that FF 13 went through when it was announced as being a multiplat game. No fault on the Xbox 360 more like Squarenix basically screwed up on it. Many fans have the idea that the game was dumbed down cause of it. However since FF Versus is an exclusive for now the game may prove that Squarenix made the wrong decision with FF 13. So delaying the game may make fans forget about what happened and thus making the game not as 'big deal'.
