VG247: SCEE president David Reeves has shrugged off Microsoft's intended E3 coup de grace FFXIII announcement by predicting a hardware boost from the game's release and pointing out that it's still a Japanese PS3 exclusive.
yup he did! basically in a polite way he said its up tp square and microsoft to try and get the game looking halfway decent on the 360 because its maximised to the more powerful ps3 and they got their work cut out! and his not worried about it being on the 360 because its exclusive in japan the home of rpg's! wow this console war is amusing when head figures get involved
lol - i don't know how you got that many agrees but no where in that article does it say they'll try to get the game "looking halfway decent on the 360 because its maximized to the more powerful ps3 and they got their work cut out!" I agree with your personal opinion but I think all he said was that It'll look good on the Ps3 and be exclusive to Japan!
“I know it will look great on PS3 and – it’s up to Microsoft to clarify this – it’s still exclusive in Japan.” from there mate,im not saying his right in his comments but you dont need to be a genius to see what his getting at i just find it hilarious these two companies are acting like there in the school playground with kids around them in a circle shouting 'fight fight fight fight' EDIT:peekay you could be right,im just saying how i saw it because it needs no clarification that its exclusive in japan on the ps3 microsoft and square have both confirmed this.but it does need clarification how there going to fit this onto dvd9 and how many discs it will use anyway bubbles dude
sure if anything he was talking about the exclusivity of FFXIII in Japan and not how gimped it will look on the 360.
sure Jamie Foxx doesn't use the word "mate" :)
mate/dude its all the same lol bubbles dude
David Reeves is the king of SPIN. He's correct in his statement, however...
Microsoft pr in 08= spin. hes just being honest!
Why the disagrees? I said he's correct in his statement. BTW, perhaps you haven't seen that article that has him stating that being last in Europe when it comes to delivering content to gamers is a good thing, and that he thinks consumers are willing to wait. edit: here it is http://n4g.com/ps3/NewsCom-...
i disagreed because he is not the king of spin tho. if u think he is thats fine lol. i think lying about console shortages is spin at its worse. if u disagree hit the button that says disagree. and tell me why. EDIT: give me a good reason to respond too.
If you say anything that might, possibly, in a round about way, point at something generally negative about Sony, you'll get disagrees... That kind of the way things are working now days.
because you put he is the king of spin no thats microsoft in 2008 have you read their statements? even 360 owners were embarrased,and because you got disagrees you then reported the story now thats lame and cowardly vg247 do not post full articles only in segments so its not a duplicate story EDIT: reaper you commented on the article saying blah blah spin,but yeh his right, you then got diagrees,you then commented about your disagrees,you then got more disagrees so you then reported a story after you commented on it. in my eyes thats cowardly actions,im not calling you a coward in general but those actions were. and the times of your comments and report of the story back up my claim because i was like damn his now reported it thats lame you been caught out reaper i saw when you first commented there were reports,so why comment then after your disagrees and in your second comment clearly getting irate about the disagrees do you then report the story? your not fooling anyone. i have no beef with you just didnt like your actions the times of all your actions are there or everyone to see what you did
Then Shane Kim must be his father. Oh, you see what I did there, fanboys? @ Juuken's Hot: I didn't report the story because I got disagrees, I reported it because of the 6 other excerpts from the SAME DAMN ARTICLE have been submitted as new stories. Calling me a coward? That's a personal attack. Edit: No, i haven't been found out about anything. When I posted the comment, there were no visible reports. But when I went into the main page, I saw that there were many other stories from the same article in the pending section. I then reported this story because I was currently in it. I don't even get what your problem with me is. Are you currently employed by Sony or recieve an income from them? If you look at my comment history, I normally only post in articles that pertain to PS3-related topics because it's the system I do the most gaming on. What's the deal here? BTW, your responses indicate your are defending this sort of submission behavior, instead of agreeing with me that this story should not have been posted in the first place, regardless of what is happening in the comments box. Edit 2: It doesn't matter how the reports form, because this story is against the N4G submissions ToS. You do know this, right? You know I got those disagrees while this was reported, so does it matter if I became another person to report it? My disagrees and this story have nothing to do with one another, you are just making invalid assumptions.
Careful now Reaper,no one wants any trouble.
OK Reeves,if you say so.Just remember that Square Enix screwed you guys over once and they can do it again. Anyway still waiting for the game...
Waiting for FFXIII? Nah never liked Final Fantasy
I just want to see what it looks like...every FF game since FFVII has brought a lot of insane technology to the table...however I have yet to play any of them since FFVII... hell FFX holds its own perfectly against a ton of current gen games (every 360 game until Gears 1, and a crap load of PS3 launch titles aside from Resistance and Motorstorm)...and that was an early PS2 title...
is catty girlfriend!!! He knows ff13 is releasing where it'll matter the most.
I'd like to introduce you to Sony's version of shane kim!
I was expecting him to say "Losing FFXIII to Microsoft is actually an advantage for us."
Actually Jack Tretton said something about that.
Hmm, can we somehow trade in Reeves for a decent SCEE Boss ? I know that no one would want him, but REALLY, he starts getting on my nerves.
He is not that bad, but i do want Phil Harrison back he did a great job
...I know a lot of you guys don't agree, but I think Kaz has really help turn the PS3 around.
I would agree with that, bubbles for you
Just not a good one. It WILL cause ps3 sales in Japan to go through the roof, but world wide will have little impact.
the impact on English territories will be unknown until the release window is further explained...MS claims it will reach English territories day and date for the 360 with the PS3...while SE dodged that question stating it will be ported after the Japanese PS3 version is shipped, and while the PS3 version is localized for the rest of the world... I truely can't understand how this 'porting' will take the same amount of time as changing some languages in the PS3 version...but whatever... if the PS3 version drops first everywhere...then its moot...most FF fans are die hard enough that they will just purchase a PS3 to play the game as soon as its available...the 360 version would sell well also after, but Sony will easily take the brunt of sales...if they release on both platforms simultaneously...then it will probably just be GTAIV all over again...the game will sell insanely well, yet PS3 and 360 sells well stay dead even... and that is assuming the market condition is the same as it is now...which it most likely won't be...by 2010 the PS3 will most likely be safely in second place with several million more consoles sold over the 360 (going by the current trend)...a lot of 360 owners will have purchased a PS3 by then anway, and may simply opt for the PS3 version regardless...who knows for sure...but this is a defensive move on MS's part, nothing more...it won't steal much from Sony, if anything...but could keep Sony from trashing MS around FFXIII's 'rest of the world' release...
But I not Japanese
And will be delayed in western markets till X version is complete. It was a serious blow to my hype. I don't want to offend Xbox owners(some of my good friends have one <- fanboy misunderstanding insurance ;]) but this sucks enough to be a vacuum cleaner.
I just find it interesting that even though it will come out for the PS3 months ahead of the 360 version people act like they're coming out at the same time. I would imagine in that time most people will have purchased it for PS3, not to mention the hardcore fanatics, who are the people buying this game, are going to know the PS3 version is superior.
Couldn't care either way, the last few F.Fantsy games have been garbage.
I don't know... FF has its way of creating an amazing game whenever they make the first one for a specific console... i.e. FFI, FFVII, FFX, and now XIII and Vs. XIII There's no reason to not be excited about 3 games coming out for the FF series.. Why the hell does everyone keep forgetting about Agito?
you can't argue with that, it is still a PS3 japanese exclusive. Also, the game can still be played in the USA, since PS3's are region free.
Look we all have to get over this. Seriously we all get to play it which is great. If you have a PS3 it should be on one disc which is great and on the 360 multiple discs for sure without a doubt. So take your pick.
i now about 150 friends who owns a xbo 360 and all of them are waiting for ff13 and ffvs13 to come to the ps3 to buy ps3 ;) my 200 other friends was actually gonna wait for the game but the jumped the train when mgs4 got released ;)
Eh, it's whatever. As long as I get to play it, I don't care what system it comes out on or why.
um, when games go multiplat, wont that bring the quality of the PS3 version down? I mean, PS3 has Blu Ray...and Xbox has DVD.... so basically, PS3 users have to live with a limited version of the game when the game could have been so much more if it was designed just for the PS3.
