I don't buy it. It's fairly obvious that things like this are calculated to build hype and influence future sales. These guys know the technology they're working with, especially late on, and they definitely carefully plan the game before knuckling down to make it (especially the big companies like Ubisoft). I don't buy the idea that AAA games aren't planned well in advance.

No way! I finished the first one just the other day - finally got around to playing it. Great news!

So in other words, Sakaguchi's a little bit set in his ways.

I welcome them mixing it up a bit.

I'm actually excited about Final Fantasy XVI, because it'll be the first genuinely new game in the series for a long time. By this I mean it will have a new world, story and cast of characters. We spent a lot of time in the world of XIII and we've known a lot about XV for many years. XVI will be something totally new, which is really exciting.

EDIT: unless of course Agni's Philosophy is Final Fantasy XVI, but at least we basically know nothing about it.

Must be Solgaleo and Lunaala - the trademarks that were registered.

Wow! Why aren't people talking about the rest of the game?? It looks so good! I wasn't expecting it to look so different and to have normal sized characters.

No Kojima! You're supposed to make something innovative and not generic with your newfound freedom!

Eagerly anticipating this. I really want to play that game again, but I bet if I play my old copy, the remaster will get announced when I finish it or something, and I wouldn't want to play it all over again. Can't wait much longer though!

So far those steamdb leaks from last December have all come true. Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, Danganronpa 1 & 2, Final Fantasy VI, Stranger of Sword City, Code of Princess, Guilty Gear Xrd -Sign-, and now Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster - they're all on or are confirmed to be coming to Steam.

Yet to see Steins;Gate, Phantom Brave, Ray Gigant, Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair, and *gulp* Half Life 3, all of which were on the list. It seem...

@nitus10: There's no real substance to arguments like this: "It's all well and good doing independent studies on the effects of a particular item or thing on the human body or psyche but we all know or should know that people abuse the recommended usage be it drugs or even gaming." I don't know what you're trying to imply. Don't bother studying the effects? It could mean the difference between VR taking off or not. If all the games made for it make people ill, VR...

99% of people don't? Not a real statistic. I'm willing to bet a lot more than 1% would / do experience adverse symptoms playing VR. I'd say the number is far from negligible.

I'm not bothered with VR for a few reasons:

1. Most of the games in the works or currently available are short experiences simply because prolonged use of the headset is just a bit too intense.

2. Too expensive. It's a peripheral, not a console. Combined with 1, I feel like it would be a waste of money.

3. My eyes start to burn if I play HD stuff too much, and I get headaches when I watch 3D films or play games in 3D. I don'...

Guess not. For now anyway.

Yesss! At long last! This is great news. I hope they remake / localize The 25th Ward too.

Looking forward to this game. Been following it on greenlight for a long time now. Love the setting and the visuals.

My thoughts exactly. The field exploration and UI look they rolled right off the smartphone RPG assembly line - pretty much the same as every smartphone money generator RPG ever.. This is not the right way to test if people still care about Valkyrie Profile. If people don't buy this, it's not because they don't like and want more VP, it's because the game is mostly a slightly above average smartphone RPG. Very disappointed, especially as I was one of the few who was expecting ...

That UI... It looks like every churned out, garbage f2p mmo released for smartphones ever. They say the UI is temporary, but that doesn't mean the systems that it represents are temporary. Furthermore, I'd say the only difference between this and the final UI will be that the latter will look a bit more ornate - just pleasant window dressing on the same formula. I never played XI because I don't play MMOs, but I have a feeling this reboot will be a big f you to fans of the origina...

I've played all of them and I don't own a ps4. This is mainly because loads of ps4 games I want are / are probably coming to pc with the exception of this and Kingdom Hearts III. I'm not buying a ps4 for 2 games. And now with the likely more expensive ps4k coming out it's even less likely. Maybe when more games I want come out and when the ps4k is cheap I'll buy them, but for now I'll just wait and hope they come to pc .

I definitely saw a video of a guy playing a horror game in VR, and by the end of it he was in tears. There's definitely a point at which it stops being entertaining, and the only thing you want to do is stop playing. I feel like horror games might initially sell well, because people will want to experience that level of horror, but once they experience it, they'll be turned off by how traumatizing it is, and the popularity of such games will decline. There'll be a handful of adren...

Capitalism is the problem, not file sharing.

Furthermore, "piracy" (read: file sharing) enables preservation of software that would otherwise be lost to history.

Finally, emulators aren't illegal, just like virtual machines aren't illegal.
