Gearnuke: Looks like Final Fantasy Versus XIII isn’t vaporware after all, as we’ll only have to wait a while longer till Final Fantasy Versus XIII is revealed.
seriously does anyone still even care (about the game) at this point anymore?
Not really. Last rumor I had heard was that the game was being converted into FF15 for the PS4 with help from Sony.
Yes, a lot. Accept no substitutes.
I do and my expectations are even higher now than they were 5 years ago.
You're in for some inevitably crushing disappointment, then. Games with development cycles this tortuous never turn out well.
Alice, people are still waiting for HL2:E3. go on n4g and ask this q. the 80+ disagrees you get will tell you people are waiting for this game. i wont be surprised if this game will release on ps3 when the ps5 is out.
most of us are frustrated because of the super LONG delay but I still care because it has so much hype into it on it's first reveal way back and I'm curious to see if it lives up to expectations.
After 8 years of eluding it reached the bargain bin level for me. It's worth to send a message with a wallet, and Square is one of those who would need this kind of message badly.
A new Final Fantasy by Tetsuya Nomura, and possibly the first good Final Fantasy in years? Despite the long wait and little information, yes, there's no question I still care. Last showing it looked like Crisis Core on steroids.
I seriously don't care. The other FF's were not up to a good standard I don't know why everyone believes Vs. will. Especially after dang near 7 years.
"Perhaps the details as to why information couldn’t be released might be touched upon with the next information announcement."
That sounds like the game got shifted to PS4 and they'll reveal it at E3.
Goes well with what they said during Sony's conference.
We shall see, 2 months more until E3 2013.
This is the only thing that makes sense. However, there is no way to know that this is what they actually did. Lately, SE has been doing things that make very little sense.
I am guessing this game is going multi-plat aswell...
Sigh...the typical announcement of an announcement treatment. At this point, I wouldn't be surprised to see a multi-plat release, given the outrageous time in development. If it stays PS4, there's a surefire chance at it being a killer-app (provided SE actually knows what they're doing this time).
I don't think they saw a surge of buyer after going multi. Maybe they'll think twice now..
Given FFXIII's performance on PS3 and 360 (being the highest-selling JRPG for both consoles), I don't see how going multi-platform killed buyer's impetus for the game. Judging by the typical comments about SE's recent games, the descent in FF's quality is the real reason they'll need to think twice about anything.
"Judging by the typical comments about SE's recent games, the descent in FF's quality is the real reason they'll need to think twice about anything." While I agree to you're sentiment, SE will always follow salesnumbers. And I don't think PS3 and 360 combined sales surpassed other big FF titles. FFXIII has yet to beat X's numbers. I would'nt like to think of what XIII-2's numbers are. Bottom line is, unless they figured they would see a large decline in userbase on the PS3, they haven't reaped any benefits (apart for a curtain sum from MS) froorm going multi platform.
still hoping it stays on PS3 or at least on both PS3/PS4.
Too good to be true. This game was announced when I was 19 (2006), it's been 8 fvcking years since SE revealed it. There are tons of Wallpapers and screenshots of Noctis and Stella scattered on the internet but the game itself hasn't released yet lol.
So much hating on Versus. I for one am finding it refreshing that a title in the Final Fantasy series is taking this long to be developed. I really think SE are trying really hard to break the mold of mediocrity that they've settled into. You idiots crying for a quick release are the reason Activi$ion will continue to syphon your cash whilst producing recycled/uninspiring CoD titles and the like. Get some damn patience.
If this is on ps3 im buying it on release date. Square enix dont fail me this is your last chance
Well it's about time. it's been a long wait and we should have a great FF game because of it's long delay. I hope it live's up to our expectations.
PS4 reveal: "Please be excited." Breaking news: "Date Set for reveal."
