Every week the Japanese magazine Famitsu as their readers which games they want most. With those results the magazine makes a top 15. For months FF XIII has always been on number 1.
They must have gotten tired of waiting for so long like the rest of the world.
being so far from release date its done well. Especially considering franchises like dragon quest and pokemon are much bigger in Japan.
If ff13 like ff12 it will be suck Also ff13 has NO MP system. Digusting digusting Square Enix
Multiplayer or Magic points?
No Magic Point system because they are lazy
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.
Cant wait for Resident Evil 5!
Maybe the japanese lost some respect for Square Enix after their recent 360 abominations.
Wow the MP system is just called the cost system now you don't have to freak out because its no longer called MP.
pretty sure ff12 was awsome
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) wtf?
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
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.
I have no idea what the hell Versus XIII is about, but Star Ocean 4 looks like a good game.
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
@Kigmal funny you get negatives for saying SO4 is going to be a good game. FYI 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. -nai-
have you played SO3 b4? it rocked so much.
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.
@ ^^^ you say i cant talk yet you turn around say i asure you there is. come on, your just being arrogant. -nai-
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!! PS GO NAI!!!!!
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 ^^
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.
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...
Yeah, well, the 360 has no games and Microsoft are more concerned with getting streaming movies off the ground.
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.
