FFXIII coming to PS3 first, Xbox much later

Full thread is at gamepro.com but the beef of it is here

According to Square Enix, "Work on the Xbox 360 version of Final Fantasy XIII would not begin until the PS3 version of the game was completed," reports GamePlayer, while referring to Square Enix's E3 press conference held on July 14.

"So unless something was lost in translation," speculates GamePlayer, don't expect to see Final Fantasy XIII on Xbox 360 until 2010, whereas the PS3 version is widely expected sometime in 2009.

Wish deadmeats ass was here for this then again no I dont. I dont care for FF but I figured this may be relevant to some here.

Actually, I read an article about the game during E3, straight from Microsoft and Square's mouth, that the game will be day and date. Not sure if something has changed but that's what I read...

Something along the lines of the PS3 version getting released in Japan first but then not getting localized until the 360 version is done so that a US/Euro release would be day and date with eachother.

Microsoft were being very sly (as per usual) what they meant was final fantasy will be released day and date in the US and Europe, not day and date with the ps3 version. So basically final fantasy will first be released on the ps3 most likely in 09 as stated by the OP, then in 2010 it will be released on the same day in both the USA and Europe. See how easy it is to twist words and meanings around to suit your cause. Microsoft are the best in the business in this regard.

Sony never twists words around at all.....

thats about correct.. the game will see a release in japan first on ps3 only, and then when its release to EU and NA, it'l be released on ps3 and 360. but it will remaind PS3 only in japan only.

This is how I understood it also. Non-English speaking territories will get it on PS3 exclusively first. Then it will be localized and released on PS3 and 360 at the same time in English speaking territories.

But coming back to the whole territory thing, again, my understanding is that only America, Australia, New Zealand, and the UK are getting a 360 version. Which makes sense as that's where the 360 has sold the strongest.

I wish I could, but I really can't. I was still traveling around during that whole E3 period of time and I was reading so much from so many different places that I can't even begin to tell you where I read it exactly.

However, it doesn't matter because I am fairly certain this is the way it is going to be. Just look at all the overwhelming amount of evidence... had it been a delayed release on the 360 for NA/Euro you can bet your ass Sony would have been up in arms moments after the announcement claiming that they still had a timed exclusive deal, but that never happened. All they said was that it's still exclusive in Japan and that they are disappointed by Square's decision.

Here is the article that gamepro got form a aussie counterpart. If you read it all it spells out everything going as far to say M$ spun a big fat one. It was done off an interview with the developers of FF after E3.

That is how I understood it, and how I think it will go down.

Why do you not do this crap when some ass like deadmeat or you and his fellow minions posted all that crap. I havent seen no bullshit topics or post from Sony fans like you do all the time from M$ fans but anything positive for sony you attack. This and the whole high five thing is ridiculous even aside from the homosexual obsession with tom cruise. I guess any good news from sony cant be tolerated, why? This isnt a "omg sony kicks ass" thread its just news. You need to check these obsessive complusive disorders and realize you cant have tom and sony isnt out to get you.

This is funny because the only good thing to come out of E3 for M$ is that they got their hands on a PS3 exclusive. In industry terms, it's now still a PS3 exclusive. :D

Fable II was nothing at all, the netflix deal was nothing too. Im more exited for Fable II then any game the PS3 has to offer. Though I am extremely excited for Resistence 2 because the first one was so good.

Come on fanboys, enjoy the best of both worlds ;)

That makes absolutely no sense. In "industry terms"? How do you even know what an industry term is or even what the industry really thinks about it all? Do you work in it? Perhaps you actually work for Sony... :confused:

Final Fantasy XIII is not a Sony exclusive title anymore. Deal with it... :what:

Another quick thing: why is it a good thing when Sony revamps their user interface, adds videos to their marketplace, and creates a virtual world? However, when Microsoft announces a revamp for their user interface, avatars, and a deal with Netflicks to allow for streaming movies it's merely rubbish... a complete write off.

Seriously your fanboyism is stinking the joint up pretty bad today...

Timed exclusive = exclusive. Sorry, that's how they say it now.

I didn't say it was rubbish, thanks for putting words in my mouth. I thought E3 was supposed to be about the games, right? Fable II, Gears of War 2- cool but we knew they were coming. Aside from RE5, I thought Gears had the best gameplay trailer at E3. And MadWorld (Wii), one of my most anticipated games this gen, had a cool E3 trailer. I'm such a fanboy, praising games from all consoles. :rolleyes:

OK, well I don't know why this thread even exists then if it's not true... I haven't been keeping up on FF13 news so I'm oblivious to all this. It'd certainly be interesting if it was released on the PS3 first, though.

I'd say its a Regional Exclusive.

Would this be a first of its kind?

Look back at post 8 or around there I put in the link that had the interview with square AFTER E3. Thats where this came from and there is a story on gamepro about it. Whoever said its not true is talking about the E3 press conference this is after that announcement.

I don't know. So much gets lost in translation all the time. Even with a translater right there.

Nevertheless, if the 360 version does come out out later in the US/EU/AU than the PS3 then that will be unfortunate for the 360 only owners who have to wait, but I'm sure they will wait and be just as pleased when they can finally get their hands on it.

And those who would buy a PS3, when they already have a 360, to get the game earlier probably already have the PS3 by now.

Gamespot was based off of July 14 data.

From July 22:

"This is definitely not the case: Final Fantasy 13 will be launched simultaneously across America and Europe on the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3. This was confirmed by Microsoft (http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=192994) and Square-Enix (http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3168827)."

http://www.thegamereviews.com/article-659-Rumor-Killers-July-22nd-2008.html

Either way, i don't think it's going to be that big of a deal. Few of either consoles will be sold because of it.

on another note, "MS gets into the movie business".
"
According to (http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/fc780236-5843-11dd-b02f-000077b07658.html?nclick_check=1) the FT, Microsoft "has struck deals with five horror movie directors for a series of short films in a move aimed at boosting the original entertainment content available on its Xbox console." If the first part of the experiment works, Microsoft will probably go forward with more short content which cannot be seen by owners of rival consoles."

I wonder if the PC version will be day and date.

I'm still waiting for DMC4 for PC. I want to see how good it can look! :D

EDIT: Well I'll be damned, it came out this month! I need to browse the PC section more! d'oh!
