Speaking to CVG in a recent interview, Kitase told us: "Unfortunately, it has been decided that no DL contents will be available for the Japanese version due out in December, while no decision has been made for the overseas versions."
360 might get some dlc I mean the remaining game just like Forza 3 thanks to lack of Bluray!
I think the Eng versions could. I mean, previous FF titles have never released worldwide so close together .usually we see that the US or EU versions get extra content. This extra content translate to an 'International' rerelease in Japan. Maybe DLC for US/ EU and then year or two later we see the FF13 International edition in Japan. Its possible I think.
If i read it correctly, he said no DLC by the time FF13 releases in japan, so they can release DLC for japan during sometime after the releasse....
I don't know about acutal content being released via DLC(like new monsters quests and stuff) But I think it's very likely that with the backlash about not having both the Japanese and English the on the same disc(thanks to the 360) That they may just add a way to add the Japanese voice track via DLC. It would make alot of sense and if they priced it right it would make them ALOT of money as a large majority of the fans would get it simply because they prefer the Japanese to the English.
dlc is such a waste unless its free and even then they had years to develop this ..... just include it in the game.... i dont want to buy an unfinished product...especially an unfinished rpg
No DLC in Japan means no DLC anywhere.
i do wonder how the Japanese would act if the Western 360 users get exclusive DLC.
riot in the streets, godzilla style.
If you can read between the line... he said that it depend how much microsoft will give to sh1t enix to have exclusive dlc.
why would SE do that to JP. Thats there biggest spot for sales. this got me thinking. What if the DLC are already on the JP versioon of the game and the US/EU version had to cut it out for reason i will not state.
I will say it then for the inferior 360?
sigh, MS can you make your own games for once
a frickign japanese conversion pack for us PS3 owners who got ripped off with a sucky dub due to the pathetic room of the DVDs.
Unavailable at launch but eventually will be released during US/EU launch, as simple as that.
Just a title for the site trying to get hits and purposefully inflammatory. Dlc for rpgs usually just ends up being some janky items anyway. Or some left over content that was cut for a reason and was better off left cut.
*passes the tear jar around the room* There you go Sony fans, put em in there.
I don't think the DLC will that big of surprise, if it was they would release in Japan first. Who knows, they just release the game equal on both platforms.
them move on to their other projects like FFvsXIII, Kingdom Hearts etc
Never knew people were so keen on spending on DLC... I couldnt care less as long as I get the full game and its full in the experience it gives
Anyone have any idea what they would add as DLC? More weapons? Extra areas? Chocobo Minigames? I doubt it will be that great, but more bosses are always welcome, especially tough ones that justify those of us who spend 20-30 hrs on top of the standard game length to get the party to 99.
Hope the game is worth it
No DLC please! And no Trophy/Achievement Names that ruin the plot or spoil anything either!
how many more promises you gonna break? "Finish the PS3 version then port it to 360 to make sure the PS3 experience won't be hindered." Now if the 360 version (which is getting made at the same time btw) manages to get some extra content at the price of the polish of what the game used to have when it was Ps3 exclusive, why should we spend our money on something so sub-par? I mean kudos to MS for having the financial means to lower the bar to keep the playing field even for their inferior tech (Modern Warfare 2 case most recently), but some of us want to see the best that devs can do with these new consoles.
I really don't think if the add DLC it will have any effect on the actual story. Maybe extra hidden Bosses that are stronger than the final boss itself to give gamers who've beaten the game reason to play more.
