first play tests of the final fantasy 13 demo.
Ok, this is good! At last actual info of the game with high quality scans and all! edit: BTW Johnny Cullen, this is not duplicate because if you actually clicked the link to read what's in it you would know that the link you're providing doesn't have A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G. No info, no Scans, no nothing! Why that guy posted that it's beyond me... But this link has a lot of info and neat pics and you're calling it a duplicate? Are you blind or something?
game looks pretty good so far
I disagree DNAgent. This game is all quality. Square isn't diverting resources on two different SKUs. They are entirely focuses on developing the PS3 version (which is, for those who can't count, ONE SKU). Once that is done, THEN AND ONLY THEN will they start development on the 360 version. So no, no quantity over quality bullsh!t on this one. Jesus christ, PS3 fanboys are annoying and give PS3 owners a bad name. We PS3 owners are still excited about this game (and I'm contemplating importing Advent Children Complete with the demo). I'm even contemplating buying Tabula Rosa to beef up on Japanese to import the game when it comes out in JP this year.
It is a fact that they will port the game after they finish PS3 version but the fact that they have plan since last year, I'm positive that developers have in mind about the limitation of the 360. It would be a lot easier on them if they prepare the PS3 version for an easy translation to the 360. I'm looking forward to the game but still skeptical about it.
"We're actively working on the EU version" Could that mean we might be getting a JRPG before the US!?
I doubt it, but it's strange that they are "actively working" on the European version. Cos that suggests that they are already localising, even though they said the would begin localisation after the Japanese version of the game is completed. Interesting. Probably means that we will be getting the English version of the game a lot quicker than usual. I hope to God that's true. btw I didn't disagree with you.
I'll be getting the PS3 version and wherever it first comes out in English, I'll be getting that version. Could mean importing from the UK. Doesn't matter to me! PS3 games have no region lock.
Yeah but I dont really like the enviroment the demo is set in its too dark. I still cant wait to play the demo
But it don't look like it's using 100% of PS3 Power tho!!! ;-D I want to try it, even tho i'm not into RPG games. + EDGE was going to give the Demo 1/10 but someone told them it is coming out on the xBox 360 to, so they have given the Demo 10/10!!! ;-D (Leave it!!!...Stop being so Bitter Sir Ken) ;)
I won't be playing this at all. It's by Square-Enix so I can easily pass on yet another mediocre FF game from them (or any game by them for that matter). Looks like I will be waiting for a good JRPG a long time (at least until Atlus releases a Persona game for PS3).
I'm done with square. After this gen. I cant see myself buying any more square games. So many bad JRPG flops this gen.
well i can't say the same as i have yet to buy anything by SE so far lol.... last game i bought from them was FF12... I am still hyped about FF13 but since FF9 I have not really enjoyed a good FF title. FFX(too liner) FFX-2(awesome game play but the story was... just let tidus die eh.. its more emotional that way) FFXI(why do ppl hate taru dark knights) FF12 ( really hated the story and character development but the game is not as bad as most ppl make it out to be)
The haters will cry because this FF will be the best Square-Enix game on this gen.It will have HIGH SCORES, SUPERB GRAPHICS, FANTASTIC SCI-FI STORY, a truly Masterpiece. Of course, they will say that SE only released crap on this gen, but only The Last Remnant (on next-gen consoles) was produced by SE (the weak SaGA Team), ONE GAME, repeat: ONE GAME! FLOPS? TLR was weak on reviews (the 360 version), but the sales were pretty good. Infinite Undiscovery is a Tri-Ace game, Star Ocean IV too (this one is amazing). They are yet to release a FLOP on this gen...
You seem to have forgotten the mediocre Star Ocean Last Hope...
How many FF games can you make? Theres at least 20 or more. That is including the PSP games. I think its an over hyped series if you ask me. FF 7 was amazing. But the others never really kept me interested.
Star Ocean -> TRI ACE GAME. Tri Ace =/= Square Enix.
Sigh. Square Enix produced the Star Ocean game, so yeah, it came from Square Enix. They technically did not produce Infinite Undiscovery though they did publish it.
Do some research first... Tri-ace is the one who made Infinite Undiscovery and Star Ocan IV. Square-Enix is the PUBLISHER, they didn't helped Tri-ace on the development of this games. The Staff is working hard in the Fabula Nova Cristallis: FFXIII, Versus XIII (this one will continue after they finish FFXIII probably), and Agito XIII.
No, you need to learn some basics of comprehension. It doesn't matter if Square published or developed a game or not. I already knew that Tri-Ace developed Star Ocean Last Hope. However, IF IT GETS THE FVCKING SQUARE ENIX STAMP OF APPROVAL (their logo), then it is their fvcking game. Dragon Quest is their game even if Level 5 developed the last two entries in the series. -edit- I disagree SpoonyRedMage. Square Enix published Star Ocean in all territories. That makes it their game. They only published Disgaea 3 and Persona 4 in ONE territory, hence IMO doesn't fall under the same definition.
I dont care about FF until they make a story as good or better then 7 or X. I dont care about the graphics, and I dont care for action jrpg's. If this is anything like FF12 I will gladly not purchase this game. I hate action rpgs unless its something like Morrorwind or Fable 1. Im sorry but devs are doing rpg's so wrong these days.
The relationship between Tri-Ace and SE and Level 5 and SE are completely different. Level 5 was hired by SE to program and CO-develop the games with Armour Project(who is technically independent anyway) whereas SE simply publish Tri-Ace games and help out occasionally. Plus if you say any game published by SE is an SE game I'm glad that Disgaea 3 and Persona 4 are now SE games(as well as other NIS games).
Namikaze_Minato is right Square is "PUBLISHER"!!! The only good JRPG Triace has made this gen is Star Ocean 4 the last hope so don't be calling it a mediocre. @jackdoe yeah is their game BY LAW but they didn't make it.
screens from years ago were stunning & amazing when it was thought to be exclusive. Now all of a sudden it's horrible & meh. Good thing we don't look at everything this way. Think of how many things we would stop liking. Barry Switzer didn't suck all of a sudden because he coached those damn Dallas Cowboys.
Technically, those screens are still exclusive as they all come from the PS3 version. We have no idea what the 360 version would look like at this point, and won't know until next year. What cracks me up is that PS3 fanboys think that they are somehow getting gimped when in fact they aren't (at least in terms of processing power; PS3 owners are getting gimped in terms of release time tables and whatnot). Square is developing this game with an exclusive release mindset. Completely developed for the PS3 as if it were an exclusive and then porting it to the 360 after that is done. -edit- Disagrees either from 360 fanboys who don't believe it (check out all the interviews with Kitase and Nomura) or from PS3 fanboys who are too fvcking stubborn and immature to handle something like this.
Assassin's Creed, DMC 4, FF XIII, ect, ect. When thought to be PS3 exclusive, they were the best ever. Only possible on PS3. As soon as they go multi-plat they suck or aren't as good as they used to be anyways. Tekken 6 will be next. Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssee, Star Ocean, ect would be the greatest of all times if they were PS3 exclusive, but since they are on the 360, they suck. Same type of game PS fans have been raving about since PS1. They can disagree all they want. Notice how they can't ever explain why?
Multiple disagrees, yet not 1 reply post to offer a an explanation of why.
If you believe their PR department that is. Of course they are going to say their are going to code it to PS3's best ability. Whether it is going to happen or not, we may never know. Even if the PS3 version somehow looks better than the 360 version, we still won't know if it's at PS3's full ability or not (did they sacrifice some aspect of the processing power to make sure it has an easier time porting over to 360? Even though the announcement was made a year ago, the decision was probably made much earlier than that.) @Grown Folks Talk "As soon as they go multi-plat they suck or aren't as good as they used to be anyways" You are always going to have people who claim this, regardless of which camp you are on. People assume things, and they say it as if it's facts. Just like Jackdoe here who is assuming people who disagreed with him "are too fvcking stubborn and immature to handle something like this." People assume their opinion is the only valid option because they are unaware of or didn't think of other possibilities (i'm talking in general, not this instance). You just have to take the good with the bad (comments) here, and ignore the obvious opinions claimed as facts. Otherwise, you could be responding to 90% of comments here, getting 100 disagrees, and no reply. That happens everywhere not just in games, or [insert your game console of choice here] fans. P.S.: Jack I didn't disagree with you btw (I don't want to labeled "immature" :P)
Looks good so far.
Oh, and the article said thirty minute demo!? That is way under Square's estimate of two hours (unless they only showed a portion to the folks at Edge).
I just read the scans and they said it plays like FF12. So there you go. I officially give up any hope on future jrpg's. Its not that I dont like action rpgs, Elder Scrolls is awesome, kingdom hearts, god of war, they are good action rpg's because they have action in them. What made FF was the fantasy behind everything. Turn based gameplay is ideal for the franchise considering you have all of the summons and magic that you have to use tactically while waiting for your next turn. I always loved watching the cutscenes from all of the summons and spells too. Now it just doesn't feel the same anymore, and it wont ever get better until someone with some sense gets some power within that company.
they said "the battle system is an evolution of what we've seen in the tenth game" from what i see it might bring FF games back BTW FF12 sucked
EDGE claims that FF13 is the best looking game on ps3
But I can see it being the best looking JRPG on the PS3, as well as the 360. I still have faith in the Final Fantasy series not lettin me down.
the article states that FF13 is the best looking PS3 game yet ... are they blind ? Uncharted 2 is by far more prettier ...
I think you'll find this has just beat killzone 2 graphically and environmental wise. OMFG.
I tried seeing what you're seeing but I don't think we can both fit our head up there.
Edge=BS Anyway, I was severely disappointed with XII so I hope they redeem themselves with XIII. You know, the more I hear people talk about graphics are equal on both consoles, to some extent that may be true. But it all comes down to how much is going on and how much you can do. Being why Rage had to have some levels cut from the final product seeing how the 360 wasn't able to "handle it". It kind of stumps me cause you'd think they'd just make it a multi-disc game, like most JRPG's, so nothing would have to be cut. Just a thought...
The game looks really nice and I love the character models as well. This game can't come soon enough :(
