I look forward to this. I really want to see what Square Enix can do with the PS3. An Final Fantasy that really pushes the PS3 (much like FFXII pushed the PS2) is all I want to see. That's the main reason I want this to stay exclusive. Just to see the results of some tight work with the Cell. Imagine an RPG with the same production values graphically and gameplay wise to Uncharted 2 or God of War III. Amazing no?

they better, or else they are going out of business.

thereapersson4964d ago

Their lack of focus this generation and spreading themselves too thin on a myriad of average-to-mediocre games across too many systems is what has brought them into the current downward spiral we are seeing.

Also, where the f*ck is Versus XIII? At this rate, we won't see it until the launch of the PS4...

from thereapersson: "Also, where the f*ck is Versus XIII? At this rate, we won't see it until the launch of the PS4... "

hell,yea! bubbles for that. it's hard to figure them out. they wait soooooo long to bring a game out and by the time they do - only the japanese care about it. i would think they'd like to get FFv13 out before the end of 2011 - but now look at the competition they'll face from just sony exclusives! i'm very surprised the way they're dragging their heels on this one.

Only On Playstation

True FF Fans will be excited

FF 13's was an emo corridor simulator and their latest FF MMO was a total freaking failacoaster. I have no faith in this company anymore and fear for the future of the franchises like Tomb Raider and Deus Ex.

Baka-akaB4964d ago

tss again with that crap .

SE is only the new publisher . Deus ex and tomb raider were already well underway ... so not yet eidos projects truly affected by Square's input .

Hell so far , square's arrival only had positive impact on deus ex ... with their whole cgi team for some rather gorgeous cutscenes .

I'm all for trashing SE for their faults , but let's not pin global warming on them as well .

"Hurrr townz in HD r too hardz!"

Remember that?

Yeah.

MaideninBlack4964d ago

They're going to showing old footage of the game as well, but I guess that makes it new to us. :/

Stealth20k4964d ago (Edited 4964d ago )

Square is still making a shit load of money regardless.

Hell 2009 was a record year for square in terms of pure profit

And if dragon quest X launches next year, forget about it. Not to mention 3rd birthday, another ff iv, and much more

RedDead4964d ago

Hmmm, Japan is about + 9 on the GMT Right? that means 11 o clock and 1 o clock in the day for me :)

Square Enix Is "Working Hard" On Small To Medium-Scaled Games, CEO Says

The Square Enix CEO has recently confirmed in a shareholders' meeting that it is still working hard on multiple small-sized games.

CrimsonWing6925d ago

I thought they said they were focusing on bigger games… so, we’re staying the same now?

just_looken25d ago

They should come clean and just say that they are working hard on keeping the light's on as they were a greedy company that is now almost broke.

The_Blue24d ago

They can't decide rather to squeeze into the indie mobile market or AAA.

CrimsonWing6924d ago

All I can say is I hope Front Mission 3 Remake didn't get cancelled.

anast25d ago

Quality should be number 1.

Abnor_Mal25d ago

Does smaller games translate to smaller prices for the consumer, or no?

just_looken24d ago (Edited 24d ago )

HA HA square small prices this is the company that made avengers and said Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Didn't Meet Sales Expectations Amid Struggles

Same in 2023 with ff16

https://www.eurogamer.net/f...

They got 202 million usd in operating income they want cash fast so get those $60 3hr long games out there fast and more microtransactions now.

Hotpot24d ago

Well I don’t mind more HD-2D games.. preferably something like FFVI, Chrono Trigger, or Xenogears.
