Gamestop captured the back of Final Fantasy XIII's Xbox 360 box, which has bullet points about the game's features. Let's see… it supports one player, saves take up 4MB, and apparently has "game-content download."
Is anyone actually surprise? MS tactics at play
I think pretty much every game has this on the back of the box.
yeah it probably didn't fit so now its DLC, lol
MS tactics? Since when did MS develop this game? Tinfoil much?
The way Microsoft works is they let the disadvantage seem like it is an advantage to be people who don't know. "Hey it comes in 3 discs it must be the limted edition" "Hey it has exclusive DLC" (it's already on the PS3 original disc) "Hey it's on xbox 360 it must be the bettter version along with achievements" (PS3 is the better version)
I thought SE said there wouldn't be any DLC for FF13 or maybe that was some other game.
as any 360 gamer would know, this only means that the game supports downloadable content IF any were to be released. Nothing to go ho-ha over and create an article for. Even the comments, already throwing about Microsoft bs. But I guess I did say any 360 gamer...its clear to see who are not 360 gamers. Big fail on this website's part though. I mean they screwed up right then and there in the description: "it supports one player, saves take up 4MB, and apparently has "game-content download." You just don't change supports to has. They are all the same meaning, SUPPORTS. I mean really, was it that complicated no one could figure it out?
Yeah, I'm pretty sure that any downloadable content for the game will be coming to both consoles.
What about S/E's tactics as usual then? They do seem to have picked up a habit for being less than forthright. Though I think we have to wait before we know what "game-content download" even means exactly. If its either additional or required DLC. If the latter I'm sure there'll be hell to pay.
Didn't MS change the rules to their console so you have to put this on the box now? I'm sure its part of the new Xbox live terms of agreement.
Nothing to see here people, move along. Blaze is right, this is just saying that the game supports it, but it's not saying it 'has' it. Also, people forget that there's more stuff crammed onto the PS3 disk than the 360 one (voice overs, etc.), so for all we know this could just be Square's way of giving 360 gamers the chance to get the extra stuff that otherwise would have been on a 4th disk.
the same way they convinced Square to make a port to their system... With a big fat paycheck. Just like GTAIV DLC, Mass Effect exclusivity, Splinter Cell, etc. you name it.
Just because this means it does or does not "support" game-content download doesn't mean that it's still unlikely. Look at the post about this on Kotaku. Every game he had that had this "feature" also had DLC in some form or another. And, oddly enough, the back of the Borderlands case does not have this feature listed, and yet it still had DLC. So 1) MS doesn't require this be on the case, which leads one to believe there's a strong chance for DLC. and 2) It still really doesn't mean anything yet.
FIRST SUB-HD NOW MATADOR INSTALLATION LOL FOR YOU N4PS3G: http://i127.photobucket.com...
Red blanket of death?
May be they are talking about disc 4 content available for download? Just a thought.
Kinda like what they did with Forza 3??
What did Forza 3 do?
Require that you have a HDD and enough space for an install to play all of the game w/o disc switching. That you didn't have all available content available at once if you didn't. Know it doesn't sound like much, but then you're probably not someone who saw an "Xbox 360, now at $199" ad and took MS at their word.
Kitase already has confirmed DLC for this game...that will be launched in Japan and in the west. It's a Ps3 exclusive in Japan, I doubt they'd gimp American PS3 users of it either way. Unless MS shelled out HARD crash, of course.
Even if MS shell out HARD cash, I doubt SE would want to piss off ps3 owners further. They have already pissed off some of the fan base by making the game multiplatform so they can't risk pissing off the entire group.
But then again, you forget who we're talking about here. At this point, if MS paid Wada a nickel to slit his mother's throat, I could see him accepting it kindly and looking for the sharpest knife.
The next thing you will hear is a million JP fans of the game screaming in frustration. Burning their PS3 copies if not consoles in the street. Giving a big F-U to Square at their next announcement.
I see what you did there
BUT TERRIBLE GRAPHICS
oh, so that means you have the copy already then huh?
just like you already have the copy of mgr to realise its the hd version of the game? OT: think it is quite obvious that they're including the stuff that wasn't on the 360 version as dlc.
I dont think any multiplats exist that actually look better on the PS3. I rest my case.
erm dragon age origins looks better on ps3. and by the looks of it so does ff13....you should come out of the bubble your living in.
the dlc stuff is going to be items/equipment i doubt they'll have missions to download the first week. but who cares about this game, BattleField:bc2, sam&max and yakuza3 are coming out all withing the same time as final fantasy13
I have zero interest in every game you listed, and I play a ton of games. FF13 is probably the only game I'm buying this year.
hum.....maybe it is like Forza 3 kinda thing. And again, final fantasy is not console exclusive. I still don't know why Sony Fanboy got so but hurt over this.
Because when a Final Fantasy game is first released on a next generation console it is believed that it will take full advantage of what they know and can do on the console so far as well as push it further. Also I think some people have been worried that one version of the game in this case the PS3 will will have graphical and technical problems because it is Multi-platform.
xbox 720 in fall 2011.....GUARANTEED
Orly? Thats why Mass Effect 2 is rated higher than Uncharted 2, currently the PS3s best game, right?
Oh, my God. M$, seriously, do something better with your money.
They figured out how to get yours with minimal effort.
Can't wait to play this game. I already pr-purchased this game for my PS3..but for Xbox only owners, this will be great.
People complain about how MS is M$...Nut it's a business and you would do the same thing if you were them, and I honestly LIKE how they do what they do, there smart but yet a lot of people hate them for being smart. Now, I'm very glad there's DLC I have 2100 MS doing nothing, so all good for me. And I'm very surprised it's not rated for Sexual Content or Partial Nudity from that one scene that everyone has seen already.
why do people actually own failstation3's when the games are always gimped and dumbed down? xbox360 - it's never to late to jump in
The whole roman numeral system confuses you... doesn't it. 'why do people actually own failstation3's when the games are always gimped and dumbed down? ' OMG... You sir could possiply be the most idiotic person I've met on here. Seriously look at your shallow life and realise how much a waste of time you've been to humanity. Games like Gears of War 2 really proved how reliable the 360 is... I mean 6 months and it still barely worked. Also which console has the 33-54% failure rate it's the 360 btw.
Why do some people fail in life
"your too stupid to insult"
PS3 version 1 Blu-ray disk with all the stuff on it that's required for the full game. 360 version 3 to 5 DVDs cut down parts and now some parts of the game have to be downloaded to play the game. Going to really screw all those with no net access isn't it.
But I jumped out because of the friggin hardware issues!!!!
Please seek professional help!
That is gimped is the 360. Still on DVD 9's after all these years.
Xbox360 exclusive not likely could be but if that would be the case expect also exclusive ps3 dlc. Every popular game has and should have dlc simply because they can enrich and prolong the game experience. (except of-course if the pricing is ridiculous compared to the "value" of the dlc or the game) On the other it offers the company to gain some additional profit. Furthermore we all know they have cut stuff for the final game which we might see in the dlc...
or Exclusive content[which I doubt] it's a fn JRPg, it may be a character, a fn sword or some other stupid ITEM...Lost Odyssey had "downloadable Content" if you pre-ordered it. I swear you people argue the dumbest things.
LMFAO! So THIS is how they were able to keep it to "only" 3 discs. Please wait...loading... And why would any of you conclude that this somehow indicates exclusive DLC? Dream on.
xbox30's final fantasy download content is squares way of trying to say im sorry i gimped your game
Microsoft should've just let them go to 4 or 5 DVDs. What about the Core and Arcade 360 owners who don't have hard drives?!
Sounds like your gonna have to download what would have been on a 4th disk. Kinda like what they did with Forza 3. Sucks for all those people that dont have HDDs. Damn......who would have thought that every time news comes out on this game, it makes the 360 look worse and worse. lol.....bet ya Microsoft didnt think about that when they were writing those checks to SE.
@cardgenius DLC makes a gale look bad? Your a dumbass. You have no idea how Microsoft and SE does there business so you shouldn't say something you have no idea about, your just making assumptions and saying things that YOU like and prefer it to be that way. If SE really wanted to have a 4th Disc they could have IT'S SE they coudl do anything they wanted...Fail flammers are fail.
LOL.....This isnt DLC. This is content from the game that they didnt have room for. So instead of putting it on another disk, theyre gonna make you download it. So, when did they start advertising DLC on the back of the game case as "game content download"? Let alone advertise DLC on the back of the game case? lol
I am not getting this game, but when did a game with less disc swapping and 720p vs 1080p make it a lesser game? The thing that should matter is the actual gameplay and mechanics - not the amount of pixels pumped out during cutscenes. I don't recall the date or site, but I recall square brass claiming that both games will look the same during game play. Maybe the ps3 game will be better, but you are really stretching if that is based on 1 vs 3 discs or cutscenes.
Put on the DVDs now you have to PAY to have the complete game. No thanks Sorry Microdorks but I play Beyond now.
Towns.... /end sarcastic mode.
more digital junk?
Exclusive DLC. Knew this would happen.
http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... Overall, the leaps made by Final Fantasy XIII over its predecessors are mostly visual in nature and that's clearly been the focus of this tech analysis. However, bearing in mind the four-year gestation period Final Fantasy XIII has had, it's disappointing that all the key improvements have been in the audio-visuals. Of course, these are hugely important factors in FFXIII's make-up, but gameplay-wise this feels like it could've been done on PS2. Clearly, there's much to enjoy in the nature of sumptuous visuals and what is clearly the best-quality CG we've seen on a Square-Enix videogame, but early importers of the Japanese version of the game are divided about the merits of the actual game underneath. Final Fantasy XIII has 13 chapters in all, and 12 of them are quite linear in nature: progress from point A to point B, exploring dead ends and off-shoots on the map in order to find new treasures. Early on in the game especially, there is more than a little sense that the game structure feels somewhat backward: going from cut-scene to cut-scene, with little in the way of puzzling, but plenty of combat. There is a sense that enemy encounters increase in density simply to get in the way rather than present any kind of new gameplay challenge. Combat can be avoided in many cases, but Square has been wily in making it the key to powering up weaponry and equipment as opposed to boosting your characters. ============================= ====================== However, the more linear approach to the gameplay does mean that Final Fantasy XIII will undoubtedly be much easier to convert onto the Xbox 360. While a more freeform approach could have seen you jockeying discs about as you move from one area to another, Square Enix has confirmed that the three-DVD Xbox 360 version will only see two disc-changes throughout the duration of the entire game. However, porting the game across to the 360 must have been a daunting proposition. Taking a look at the structure of the Blu-ray disc, we see an absolutely colossal 32.6GB of what looks to be pre-rendered movies, while the actual gameplay content itself is a more reasonable 6.8GB. Co-incidentally, 6.8GB is also the maximum usable space developers have on the dual-layer DVD (yes, Xbox 360 games theoretically have less storage available than PS2 and Wii titles).
Sad part is, if their is add ons later for it, most likely its going to be free on the PSN or 360 users get to beta test it and any problems that show up. Well they will fix and put it out on PS3. No matter what, it is going to be better on PS3 because that was what it was build for and Japan has it for PS3 only.
The xbots are jumping on this story quickly, so dont say the obvious (That they couldnt fit it on DVD's, so they have to download it. How the xbox is gimped. How the xbox ruined both versions. How the xbox is ruining gaming) or your bubbles will be gone The dissagrees I get will prove this and serve as a warning
I hope it's not the rest of the game that didn't fit in the 3 dvds.
