FF XII, while pushing the limits of my ability to stay awake, did push the PS2. It's arguably one of the most technically stunning games on PS2.


Arguably being the key word. God of War and Shadow of the Colossus were both very impressive uses of the PS2 hardware. At least both of those games had progressive scan. XII looked like butt on my LCD. For such a big release, it was pretty sloppy not to take full advantage of the hardware.

I'd be happy if we saw this game by 2011. Took 4 years for XII and it didn't really push any graphical limits so five years for XIII is a good bet. All just speculation at this point though.

Maybe we can set up a "wager" thread. I call November 2010 for release.


To be fair, though, Final Fantasy XI and a bunch of expansions did come out during that time... and that was running on a new engine from X.

Honestly I'm not a huge fan of the graphics. I think they are very detailed and clearly took great skill, but look messy and actually give me a headache.

I can't believe it doesn't have 480p, I have it on S-Video on a Wega tube 20" so I can't judge it based on that.

SotC didn't wow me with its graphics, aside from some of the Colossi.

The original God of War is pretty ugly.

I would say SotC was too much for the PS2 to handle. Final Fantasy XII runs much smoother and has much more detailed graphics. I prefer Valkyrie Profile 2's graphics over FF XII though. Same aesthetic goal, but Tri-Ace got there faster and with classier results.

On-topic: If I had to bet I would say holiday 2009. This is earlier than my gut tells me, but I think they're going to rush it out.

Didn't they use a different team for XI and XII?

I'm hoping they don't rush it out for next year's holiday. If it's that early in the development cycle, I don't see a full glitch free game coming out in less than 18 months.

XI was done in 2002 and a separate team handled XII.

This should be good news for Sony and 360 fans. I've always been a Sony fan because of one main reason, final fantasy. The sales on the PS3 are not that spectacular and I was worried that if this was released and didn't sell well, Square might start to kill the franchise off. Now, it should double it's sales and we will hopefully see yet another one. I'll still definately get the PS3 version since I'd rather not have to swap disks, but this is good news.

Hasn't XIII been in development since 2005? I keep thinking its pretty far along in development, and that SE are just being jerks and not showing any gameplay...but I could just be deluding myself.

They've been developing FF XIII since FF I.

I'll probably still get the PS3 version for what I suspect will be higher quality pre-rendered cut-scenes and lossless audio; but I'm still glad the 360 version is coming.

If I love, love FFXIII I could see myself getting it for both systems.

Jesus people. The game is still coming out for the PS3. If SE had signed an exclusive deal with MS, then I'd understand some hate but this is getting ridiculous. Everyone should be happy that more people get to enjoy a great franchise but we get this. Makes me sad to be gamer.

Obvious fake is obvious. I can't believe anyone fell for that.

Besides, nowhere in the post does he ever say anything about suicide. In fact, he specifically talks about "hav[ing] to forge a life of my own now." So, yeah. the only reason anyone called it a "suicide note" is because the guy never logged in to GameFAQs again, but the reason for that, I can guarantee you, is because it's a troll/joke/gimmick account. Simple as that.

Everyone should be happy that more people get to enjoy a great franchise but we get this.


That's actually my problem with all this; we aren't getting to "enjoy a great franchise," because S-E has run it into the ground and it's utter shit now.

But that's just me.

So your problem isn't that it's being ported to the 360 but the overall quality of the franchise. That's understandable. SE has shown more interest in making games hip and chic instead of focusing on story and gameplay. That being said, some of the later entries were pretty good games once you stop comparing them to the older games in the series.

My problem with all of this is that people won't enjoy the game solely because of the fact that it's also going to be on the 360. That's like me saying that Bioshock sucks ass now that's it's being ported to the PS3. Hell, I'm glad that everyone gets to play a great game whether it be Bioshock or FFXIII.

(Note: Before you guys get your panties in a big ole' bunch, I'm just hoping that FFXIII is going to be a great game. I'll wait for reviews, screenshots, and a demo before I declare it great. I won't be railing for the next year saying how it's going to be the best and I'll never play another game.....)

Read it again, but this time take a look at the topic title. Anyways it doesn't mater, if the guy killed himself over something as silly and irrational as FF13 not being a PS3 exclusive then he was nothing more than a ticking bomb anyways. The issues go beyond the surface and something else would have made him go off the deep end.

But it contradicts his statement at the end that he'll just have to press on with his dreary, non-PS3-exclusive-FF13 life.
