They must have gotten tired of waiting for so long like the rest of the world.

mint royale5380d ago

being so far from release date its done well.

Especially considering franchises like dragon quest and pokemon are much bigger in Japan.

mohib-uddin79865325380d ago

If ff13 like ff12 it will be suck

Also ff13 has NO MP system.

Digusting digusting Square Enix

tetsuhana5380d ago

Multiplayer or Magic points?

mohib-uddin79865325380d ago

No Magic Point system

because they are lazy

whatis5380d ago

What about a world map? There hasn't been one since the Playstation One days (FFIX) and it is very important to me that they include one in FFXIII.

Surely the PS3/360 can allow them to get this part right.

ThanatosDMC5379d ago

Cant wait for Resident Evil 5!

Helghast5379d ago

Maybe the japanese lost some respect for Square Enix after their recent 360 abominations.

eatlimegreen5379d ago

Wow the MP system is just called the cost system now you don't have to freak out because its no longer called MP.

Akiira5379d ago

pretty sure ff12 was awsome

GlibGamer5379d ago

There was no MP in FF8, either. That was handled by the magic draw system, which I enjoyed.

7. Star Ocean: The Last Hope (360, Square Enix)
8. Final Fantasy Versus XIII (PS3, Square Enix)

I wonder if the Japanese feel abondones that STart Ocean 4 is no longer on a playstation consoles

The cobnsoel fans have been playing on it for all their life

Aclay5380d ago

Star Ocean 4 is 2 months away from release and recently there's been a ton of Star Ocean 4 info/screenshots.

There hasn't been nearly as much info on Versus XIII lately, while there's been more coverage on FFXIII because it's coming out first and further ahead in development, so it kinda makes sense that Star Ocean 4 might be higher than Versus XIII regardless of the console it's coming out on.

Bnet3435380d ago

I have no idea what the hell Versus XIII is about, but Star Ocean 4 looks like a good game.

Danja5380d ago

not much is really known about FF Versus , where as SO4 has had alot of coverage and info thrown out to the public lately..

funny that the Japanese are still looking forward to The Last Remnant..lol

NaiNaiNai5380d ago


funny you get negatives for saying SO4 is going to be a good game.

jpn gamers don't care what system there fav game is on, they will buy it, they are not console loyal. like the rest of the world seems to be. if they were, then the 360 would have never moved even 10,000 systems.

bakasora5379d ago

have you played SO3 b4?
it rocked so much.

pansenbaer5379d ago

Ha. Nai fits right in with all those "sales" nut jobs that thinks America is "the rest of the world". Do you live in Japan? Do you know what they think and feel everyday? Do know what anybody but you and your friends think and feel about consoles everyday? I'm going with no. I'm sure there are some brand loyalists in Japan and I'm sure you don't know them.

NaiNaiNai5379d ago

@ ^^^
you say i cant talk yet you turn around say i asure you there is. come on, your just being arrogant.

Akiira5379d ago (Edited 5379d ago )

whats with all the disagrees on kigmal just for saying star ocean 4 looks like a good game? im gona go so far as to say it looks like an awsome game. bring on the disagrees!!

GO NAI!!!!!

GlibGamer5379d ago

Remember that games closer to release will naturally be more popular as excitement builds up to the release date.

That's possibly what happened to the swap in positions between #1 and #2.

It's flip flopped between DQ and FF for some time. Yes FF has been up there more recently but that's because of all the attention it's been getting. Now that Dragon Quest is getting close to release one would think they'd get more excited about a soon to be game rather than one they need to wait even longer for.

edit: 13. Ninokuni: The Another World (NDS, Level 5) I'm looking forward to that one too! Level 5 & Studio Ghibli ^^

TheMART5380d ago

Yes and well... What does this mean exactly?

FFXIII is still the nr.2 in Japan. I guess some PS3 fans mean to extract from this that the point that FFXIII also comes to the 360 isn't important anymore. Which is pretty funny.

"but but teh game is stolen from our Playstation! They stole it! Awwww now teh game isn't so important anymore to me... Really... It isn't... Really really really!"

Keep crying that to yourself PS3 fantards, you might cry yourself asleep tonight again.

Gue15380d ago (Edited 5380d ago )

This means the same as for fanboys that keep looking for stupid articles saying that the PS3's a sinking ship when is not... Nothing.

But this actually proves my point that DQ series is bigger than FF series in Japan while everybody have been telling me that I'm wrong. Besides, this game is a Japan exclusive and if it does bad the only one that's going to get hurt is the PS3 in the eyes of Square. Expect even less support if this game does bad in Japan so, sonyboys pray for this FF game to do well...

PirateThom5380d ago

Yeah, well, the 360 has no games and Microsoft are more concerned with getting streaming movies off the ground.

Snake Raiser5380d ago (Edited 5380d ago )

You are a fanboy. Already we have some cause to question your intelligence. On top of that you say that FF13 going to the 360 makes PS3 fans in JAPAN unhappy... Son, it is still PS3 exclusive in Japan.
