Looks like this year really is the year of Final Fantasy XIII! Japan's Dengeki Magazine has uncovered some new information on how the game is coming along, including release windows!
Well, the game's suppose to be out in Japan this year so...
hmmm...FF13 nearing Completion? For Japan that is. For the worldwide release,it will take like 5-6 months for translation of the game and the 3-4 months to port it over to Xbox360, Then they will release it worldwide.
it's not a speculation. square said their first main focus is their japanese release. then they will concentrate on the north american/world wide release. I'm sure they are already working on translation and porting to the 360 but it will still be a few months after the ps3 japan release. i'm sure they will probably release it to the 360 in japan after the port is done as well since square said they are committed to helping microsoft in japan.
time to put up or shut up. Aside fron Star Ocean (developed by Tri-Ace, not Square) they've released nothing but crap and the trailer for FFXIII showed underwhelming graphics and awkward animation transistions. My demo but restore some faith.
@ Enemy Well, based on their past translations for FF 10,FF10-2, and FF12 It took around 5-6 months for it to be translated and released to the states. FFX Japanese Ver. released in July 19, 2001 and North Amreican Ver. December 20, 2001. FFX-2 JP March 13, 2003 and NA November 18, 2003 FF12 JP March 16, 2006 and NA October 31, 2006 And for the port for Xbox360 is just a speculation, though i'm pretty sure it won't take that long to port it over as it seems there going to port it over while translating the game aiming for a simultaneously release for worldwide as they stated in this article. http://www.1up.com/do/newsS... I'm gonna be getting both FF13 and FFVS13, hope they don't keep us waiting much longer.
Dragun619: Bubbles for reasoning. Also if FFXIII is finished before the end of this fiscla year it's not going to be released until the next(so they can keep a consistent level from fiscal year to year or something) so they may be able to port it to the 360 even sooner than you think without interferring with the PS3 version. Anyway, can't wait for this game!! I may end up getting a PS3 sometime to get Versus too.
this game was near to being done when M$ decided to come in and ruin all the fun, now we gotta friggin wait for it in the u.s.
"i'm sure they will probably release it to the 360 in japan after the port is done as well since square said they are committed to helping microsoft in japan." FF13 is exclusive to the ps3 in japan, there wont be a japan 360 version
I just want my demo right now.Who know's when they will release this game.
Final Fantasy Versus 13 looks more promising to me. It being developed by the same team behind advent children and kingdom hearts and all. I like hack and slash more than turn based. FF13's been getting a lot of good media though while V13 has been unusually quiet. Hope there's some type of cross game connection. Wonder if i should play FF13 before FFv13.
Because....um I don't have a ps3 :D
I have both, but i'll be getting the PS3 version on one Blu-ray disc along side with Versus :D
X360 version will be on 10 DVDS
You have to switch disk for every house you get into... Only im not quite sure how many disk.. 360 ftw muahahahahahahahahahahahhaha!! !!!!!!!!
lol... one disk for a fire spell, another for an ice spell, another for a black magic spell etc etc
This game is what will make PS3 winner in Japan for 09. PS3 is out selling Wii so far in 09 but this game is that final blow. Good for PS3.
If the 360 was not getting it I would be looking forward to getting it on a world wide release but sadly I now have to wait longer.
2 wait for the us/eu release. :( i really can,t wait :((
The game had english subtitles, so wouldnt we be able to import it? I watch a lot of Japanese anime which only has english subtitles and it doesnt bother me.
Dengeki Magazine is not published till 2 April. It's not true.
...why buy it on anything other than the PS3? It's great everyone gets to play it but I made the same decision on RE5. The series originated there, and in the case of FF it spent plenty of time on Sony platforms, that jumping to ANOTHER platform just doesn't feel right. PS3 version, yes please. I'll likely import it, then get the domestic whenever it releases in NA.
the series originated on a nintendo platform... and then jumped to the playstation because square said we want more space which we will get with cds PS1 not carts N64, after all ff7 was not the first final fantasy game and the ps1 was the first playstation
I don't know maybe if gamer A only has a xbox 360 perhaps...Did that answer your question?
i will get this game on 360 because it's the superior ver. every city will be on it's on dvd, that will awesome, and every time i need to get back to level up i need to go to the 360 to change the disk, it's fun game and will make u work out, and the most obvious reason why i will get this on the 360 because it's on 10 disk, yep, it's like having 10 games HOW CAN YOU GO WRONG WITH THIS DEAL
no one is planning to get this on X360
Hahaha GiantEnemyFlop. That was funny.
now that you think about it paying 60 bucks for one disc for one game with all the levels on it feel like a rip off when you can have one game split into 10 parts! It also makes your gaming library look alot bigger and more sophisticated :P
yep, that why i will buy the 360 ver., and if your disk get scratched No problem, u have 9 more AND your dog get a new frisby it's a win win deal
A new 360 SKU with a disk changer. I wish I was good with photo shop cause I would like to see a mock up.
since we all know 360 version will come in a couple of disks... i wonder if they ever do a back to front disk like some HDDVDs?
That pic looks hot. Anyone has a link?
but I cant wait for FFv13 thats my game I want this gen the most.... http://www.gametrailers.com...
I don't care anymore. It's taken way to long for this game to come out. And there still is a long time to wait.
will get your game and you will all have fun with it no matter in what system you buy for. Lets stop that hate about the 10 to 13 disc set for the xbox juts cuz PS3 will only get it on one disc. FF13 is a great game, so what if you gota change disc every 20minutes, who cares? Xbox fans don't mind, so let them be....10 disc vs 1 disc uh!!! just have fun with it. P.s. Please let me get some bubbles thank you lol
after Japan to get it. Who cares about what everyone is dong this gen and No it probably would still take the same amount of time even if it's going on the Xbox 360. Plus you can feel good using that ol "I have way to many games to play on my PS3" lines for some comfort.
