Sorry, Sony. The Xbox 360 is finally going to get a blockbuster RPG. Square has announced at the Microsoft press conference that Final Fantasy XIII is going to be released on Xbox 360 the same day as PS3 in North America and Europe. What a huge coup for Microsoft, and what a great piece of news for Xbox 360 owners who also happen to be great console RPG lovers.

Wow...that may make it difficult for me to buy a PS3. The only thing that would make me take the plunge would be the FF series, as sad as that is.

The trailer looks gorgeous. Hopefully the story won't be incomprehensible this time around.

Whatever man. This is the year of the PS3. Haven't you heard?
It's the 7th month and they have MGS4 and...........

Well they have a blue ray player.

LOL.. The PS3 is great machine.. The problem is it has hardly any games compared to 360.. The only reason why their sales are soo good: is the price drop and it is still the cheapest blu ray player, thats it..


PS3 is going to have to come up with something huge tomorrow to save face..

I agree.

Resistance 2 looks GREAT.
White Knight Chronicles?
A new Siren (loved the original)
A new Twisted Metal? I'd consider a PS3 (Vigilante 8 Arcade HD, coming to the XBLA, looks amazing!)

I was never able to get into FF. I had one of the games on PSOne and hated the turn based fighting. Just didn't make sense to me. I really hated having to read everything too. That is one of my hangups with Nintendo games as well. I will buy a book when I want to read things.

I will buy a book when I want to read things.I completely understand why they're not for everyone, but your complaints are exactly why I love them.

Turn based means I have plenty of time to plan my next move... take a br break without worrying about pausing, whatever. A lot of times, I like a relaxing game that's not all about hand-eye coordination.

As for the reading, to me that's a huge part of the charm. Every time you play, you get more of the story. It's like reading a new chapter in a novel. It's never the same.

Side note...

You'd be surprised how much RPG's helped my oldest son to learn to read. He played Breath of Fire, or something.. and was always bugging me. "Dad, what does this say?" I'd tell him... "You're learning about that in school, sound it out."

Sure I'd help now and then on the hard parts... but it was either read... or quit playing, and he chose to read. It really worked wonders for him.

Hell, I stink at shooters too. I just enjoy playing them though. I never go above normal difficulty though. Only reason I completed Halo 3 on Legendary was because I played online with people much better than me. heh

Late next year from what I am reading. They haven't even started developing it for the 360 yet.

1 through 6.

The good news may be is that they will be developing this on PC, THEN porting it to PS3 and 360.

And Final Fantasy XIII Versus is still a PS3 exclusive.

They reiterated that FFXIII will not be delayed in Japan due to the 360 version -- Square will complete the PS3 version first then port the game to the 360 during localization for America.

THey said that from the get go. Well, at their E3 presser. They always do that though. Release it in japan then translate it over.

Loyalty to their bottom line comes before loyalty to Sony.

I think it was a bad move to lose exclusivity, but when you combine the money MS will hand over for the rights, the money they'll spend on marketing, and the user base they can offer, SE can't say no, and Sony can't really counter.

FFXIII will sell a load on the PS3, but the 360 offers 4-5 (+?) million additional sales. With current development costs, that's a huge bonus.

Did they pay anything for it?? I think it just makes sense to go multi for them.. They lose nothing by dropping exclusitivity and they said Sony was not willing to fork over money to keep it exclusive.. This was all Sony dropping the ball and thinking they were still top dog in consoles..


As for the different release dates.. I wish GTA4 would have done that and came out on 360 first since PS3 sucked at finishing the game..

...and then leaving content out, obviously because the 360 version couldn't handle it.

I need to play and beat FF 8,9,12. I heard 3 is good, but never knew why. I never played it but I thought someone on here could explain to me why.

On a side note, FF 14 looks Avatarish..sorta..

I'm find it tough to be excited about this game considering how much Square stripped it down and turned it into a linear corridor walker.

...and then leaving content out, obviously because the 360 version couldn't handle it.

It's Square, they have to have something to add for their inevitable "international" version.

Was it true that Square was trying to come out with a FF X-3?
