During Sony's PS5 event, Sony had a surprise reveal and it's Square Enix's Final Fantasy XVI (Final Fantasy 16), and it's a console exclusive
Timed Exclusive as expected though. was hoping of more of a fantasy setting.
Pretty much expected, but man im loving the action based combat.
Action rpg shovelware. Still same clunky action.
Hey man, your entitled to your opinion but it looks good to me.
the only game that interested me more from the whole show
It's too bad there's players out there who are interested in Final Fantasy thanks to it being action, it ensures that the series will never recover.
No, it's console exclusive.. Your expectation is not correct. I'm so happy for this, finally a main original episode.. I was so afraid it's another MMO
Square Enix doesnt make true exclusives anymore. FFVII remake was marketed as a console exclusive at launch. But it is coming to the Xbox One and PC.
Hulk Whatever makes you happy.. I can't help with the understanding of what you're reading
@jemis It literally said console exclusive in the trailer so thats what we're going off of. The other times exclusives they showed off has fine print says such (Demon Souls). Sounds like you think Sonys FF7 deal carries over to FF16 and I'm doubtful your correct in that.
We all know that both Sony and MS play A LOT with the terms of “exclusivity”, so a simple text on the trailer doesnt really confirm or deny that it could be a timed exclusive. But who knows, maybe Sony did put in the cash to make sure its completely exclusive, its happened before Given how FF15 even released on Switch and mobile, its very unlikely that Square will suddenly go from wanting to release on every platform imaginable, to just 2.
@bouzebbal Has there been any platform exclusive games that SE has produced this whole generation? Ill wait. They've even released PS2 exclusive games (FFX, XII, KH) on all platforms. There is no way the next full installment of their biggest franchise is releasing exclusive to one console. Bet money
Coming to Microsoft platform via PC. And you can bet eventually it will come to other consoles even if it’s a generation from now.
No, it is a full console exclusive. Only coming to PC.
this was interesting but i also have to say this hardly resembled the same quality of their luminous tech demos. luminous (2012) http://images.gamersyde.com... http://images.gamersyde.com... FF16 (luminous 2020) https://i.imgur.com/v5IbYFS... https://i.imgur.com/nkEvlGw... https://i.imgur.com/sCrumPw... this has been a very confusing moment for some next gen games.
Actually the trailer they uploaded on the playstation channel explicitly mentions its a timed console exclusive
@ tech the luminous engine is very old i'm guessing. (2007) FFVII Remake looks to have couple things better i think. FF16 (luminous) https://i.imgur.com/2BVUyZk... https://i.imgur.com/v5IbYFS... FFVII Remake (UE4) https://www.novacrystallis.... http://i.picpar.com/pZVe.pn... I'm seeing richer colors, better skin lighting and better skin glows.
Seems this may have been updated? Timed?
The screen at the end says exclusive tonps5 and coming to other platforms later. Plural.
I like the more realistic setting actually.
Its not timed its on ps5 and pc. Nothing else
Nope, go watch the trailer they uploaded on the playstation channel, it clearly mentions its a timed exclusive on consoles
No it’s timed exclusive period, it will come to Xbox later in addition to PC
Let the downplay and WAH WAH WAH begin $399.99 all digital $499.99 standard.
Were you watching a different trailer? What are are you about? Seriously, I need to know.
I was hoping for more of an, oh I don't know...JRPG ...Apparently YAKUZA of all thing will be the only AAA turn-based JRPG of the entire eighth generation, and now knowing FFXVI is doing this again there's nothing on the horizon for the ninth.
@Greatball it was pretty underhwelming, not excited at all about it right now.
Looks interesting Old school setting But I’m concerned the main character looks similar to Noct and hanging round those friends looks like the bro theme in XV aswell Time will tell Just change the hair colour and they’d be good
I did not expect this to be quite honest with you
Reminds me a lot of Ff12.. Cannot wait, an original ff episode!!
As a long time FF fan, this looked lame imo. Gave bro k pop vibes over the fantasy stuff. Didn't finish 15 and will be passing on this.
We got Naoki Yoshida from FF14 as the producer. We are in good hands. Why don't you actually watch more info from the game instead of just bashing on a short trailer.
Yeah. If they plan to go "old school" I expect/would like to see more fantasy races.
Yes, Naoki Yoshida and the guy from Dragon's Dogma. This will be an interesting game for sure. My biggest concern is the DMC type of battle system. I want my FF series to be extremely fast turn-based, or slow action AKA Dark Souls.
No way, a FF game where the characters look similar to other ones?
I'm as shocked as you are, these are truly the darkest of days.
while they are at it, they should change the name Joshua as well, really felt out of place as one of the main characters (supposedly) being called Joshua in a Final Fantasy game. Maybe its just me, but that name really didnt flow well for me.
Joshua is the name of the kid, not the name of the main character.
My bad, i didnt mean playable character, just an important member of the cast which he seems to be. The name just stood out to me as really odd in a FF game, especially since it was said out loud a couple times.
Looks like they reused/modded/refined the FF15 engine. Would explain the relatively quick turnaround. And if the quicker SSD is a factor, allowing quicker loading, larger areas and less redundant resource allocation, then there's - some - the excuse for it being PS5/PC only.
It looks like another uninspired button mashing action game wearing the face of Final Fantasy, Hannibal style.
So much for those people who criticized me for saying Square Enix would release FFXVI before FFVIIR was fully complete
I'm more than happy with this reveal. Final fantasy going back to their medieval roots with this entry was all i really wanted out of them for a final fantasy game.
2 minutes is all it took. Having FF16 as a PS and PC exclusive is a monumental blow to Xbox, never expected that
Seems like Sony only cares if a game doesnt come to Xbox. So they got no problems with their exclusives coming to PC lol. So whats the point of PS5 Sony? Also am Im the only one who doesnt sees a "only on playstation" at the end of Spiderman trailer?
It's not really "their" exclusive and all of their games won't end up that way. Still yes, it is a huge win for PS5 right off the bat!
The point is they don't compete with PC, they compete with Xbox and getting the console rights to FFXVI does just that.
I hope Nintendo also doesnt compete with PC. That way all their exclusive will also come to PC.
Just get it on pc lol Will run better too
In a perfect world yes but we've seen so many console games poorly optimized to run on PC.
@jbull Yes, ports. They clearly said that this reveal was captured on a PC emulating the PS5 experience. I take that as being built on PC... not ported.
@jbull The crappy resolution and performance I was experiencing on 360 and PS3 is what pushed me to build my PC. The "poor optimization" in games on PC , and it's far from usual for most PC games, tends to just mean "it doesn't make full use of your hardware, but still offers a better experience than had on console, as long as your PC is fairly recent".
Yeah...if your PC is built for it..
Oh right didn't know it was running on PC, if thats the case it should be fine. I'm still having nightmares over Arkham Knight on PC.
@jbull Arkham Knight was soooo bad on PC! You and me both!
A pc that uses Windows, a Microsoft platform? Why do Sony fanboys care so much about xbox games? They are obsessed.
Waiting to see more. Hopefully arrives within the next 6 years lol. Also, as others have said, the title needs editing to timed exclusive.
I hope it releases fast so I can see the next disaster Square wants to pretend is Final Fantasy.
Can't wait to play this in 5 years
it say at the end it a time exclusive lol Not available on other platforms for a limited time after release on ps5 at 3:59 mark lol
Possibly. It does say after release on PS5 not PS5 and PC, so it could just mean PC
no it coming to pc day 1
No it isn't. It literally says only PS5 day 1
They are really trying out here to discredit this win lol
That part wasn't in the live feed so that is the disconnect.
"Not available on other platforms for a limited time after release on ps5" "no it coming to pc day 1" maybe you should read that again.
If this game arrives by 2023 we would be extremely lucky.
Considering this is made by the FF XIV team makes it look like it's pretty far into development. Feeling underwhelmed though to be honest.
