Wada: Square “looking into” FF Versus XIII for 360

Tuesday, 18 May 2010 15:52 GMT By Johnny Cullen

ffversusxiii

Holy shit, Batman! Square Enix boss Yoichi Wada has come out and said that an Xbox 360 version of Final Fantasy Versus XIII is being looked into.

Speaking at an investor meeting during the release of the company’s financials – which saw big brother Final Fantasy XIII sell over 5-and-a-half million units in its fiscal year ending March 31, 2010 – Wada said the following comment when asked if Versus was jumping ship from PS3, caught by Impress Watch:

“We’ll be looking into it internally until right before the formal announcement.”

Since its reveal at E3 2006, Final Fantasy Versus XIII has remained a PS3 exclusive, even when FFXIII jumped to Xbox 360 at E3 2008.

Director Tetsuya Nomura said last year the game’s formal reveal would most likely be coming at E3 next month, although that may potentially not happen now, according to comments made by him in February.

Whatever the circumstances, do not keep your eyes off Matrick for one second on June 14, when Microsoft’s E3 presser takes place.

We will be there, of course, to see if Wada taps his shoulder again or not.

FFXIII and FF Versus XIII are part of a three game trilogy, alongside Final Fantasy Agito XIII, known as the Fabula Nova Crystalis saga.

Thanks, Andriasang.

    The truth is, you can’t ignore as large an install base as the XBox 360 has. It’s the same argument for 3rd party XBox 360 exclusives going multiplatform. When you have a market split almost evenly down the middle as the HD gaming market is, multiplatform is the best strategy.

    Actually they are going to cut it. Nomura planned from the start to use sixaxis to the game, but when it will be on other platforms:

    @14 The big deal is that this game is in development by Kingdom Hearts team and Nomura not only make design for the characters, he is a writer and director.

    Personally, this was the SECOND reason why i bought PS3.

    @17 This was information at TGS long ago when they announced FFXIII Versus and Agito. I’m a big fan of Nomura works.

    @19 No, i really hoped that they could make a COOL use for that. Somehow, it had a potential.

    The best use for Sixaxis i saw at shitty game like Killzone 2 with interface with loading screens, it gives you a 3d effect on interface. I thought that was cool.

    MGS 4 had this cool thing with one boss.

    Great so while they make the 360 version us PS3 owners will have to wait an extra year until they finish. 2013 at the earliest for western countries.

    Nomura mentioned ffversus would have towns,npcs, and a world map also airships making a return. His ideas wont go out of the window even if its so that its going to 360 too, just 360 version will be confirmed on 3 discs like previous ff games. But i honestly think it should stay exclusive.

    If this happens, I am going to spend the next six months laughing my ass off at all the tears being cried by the PS3 fanboys.

    If you bought a console purely based on the exclusively of a THIRD PARTY title years before the game is even released… well, that just makes you an idiot.

    @38 I think you might have missed his point entirely.

    The fact that the game is “in development by Kingdom Hearts team and Tetsuya Nomura” is exactly why it’s going to be “just another over hyped, cliche’ filled, retread of a JRPG”.

    #45 5 years ago
  46. Galactic_Barret

    @45 That kind of petty. Pathetic, even.

    #46 5 years ago
  47. Boris Fett

    It’s petty to laugh at people for being fanboys? For being ignorant and having a false sense of entitlement? For expecting company’s to conform to their personal tastes, just to validate their own personal decisions, instead of supporting and publishing to the wider gaming community?

    Okay then.

    Fanboys are people who can’t think beyond their own noses. I’m not one to condone meanness, but they deserve all the mockery they get. Ignorance isn’t a privilege.

    #47 5 years ago
  48. Galactic_Barret

    No, you are right. FFXIII did get pretty funny for a few weeks.

    However, not all can be placed on the fanboys. It was said to be exclusive, shouldn’t one expect it to be? I mean, its no excuse to fly off the handle, cursing and carrying on, but being misled isn’t fun. If they were planning on a MP effort, why not say so from beginning?

    Taking pleasure from other’s disappointment is pathetic. Doing it because they bought a specific product isn’t cool, to me at least. Would you do that offline? To a friend? I would hope not. Eh, doesn’t really matter. Enjoy the fireworks, just try not to light any fuses.

    #48 5 years ago
  49. Boris Fett

    “It was said to be exclusive, shouldn’t one expect it to be?”

    No. Why should it? Obviously the plan was for it to be exclusive. Conditions change, and obviously they are considering a multi-platform release because of that fact.

    Back when the game was originally announced, the PS3 was still in its infancy, and Square were likely riding off the stellar success of the PS2. Since then, the PS3 has turned out to be the poorest selling console on the market. It’s only a small margin of a difference though, so it’s hard to choose a “leader”. Only an idiot would keep a third party party exclusive in this economic climate.

    The only reason you see it happening on the 360 is because Microsoft have a system in place where they will help fund the development of a game if they make it a timed exclusive. Ever notice how it’s always “troubled” titles with difficult development histories that become 360 exclusives?

    And all the fanboys who go on about Square being “Sony exclusive” fail to ignore that the company has always supported the more popular format. The SNES in those days, and the PS1 and PS2 in those day. This generation of consoles is not so clear cut, and considering how poorly current gen consoles are selling in Japan, they would be insane not to develop for both formats, unless they WANT to go under.

    And yet people are still hung up because the publisher said a couple of years ago that it would be exclusive, when the climate was COMPLETELY different. They can’t think beyond their own noses and look at the bigger picture.

    “Taking pleasure from other’s disappointment is pathetic.”

    I’m not taking pleasure in their disappointment. I’m laughing as their ignorance and deluded sense of entitlement. I can understand people being disappointment, but many of these cases go well beyond simple disappointment.

    When someone keeps rational expectations of the world, I can respect their opinions. People with a “Me! Me! Me! It’s all about me!” attitude though, I have little respect for.

    “Would you do that offline? To a friend? I would hope not.”

    If my friend bought a PS3 for Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy Versus XIII and then got “angry” at Square and Sony for this? Yes, I would tell him he’s an idiot.

    My friends tend to be fairly rational human beings, and where I’m come from we are a very frank people who don’t take criticism personally. Even if they didn’t agree with him, they would simply let it slide off their back afterwards.

    #49 5 years ago
  50. Galactic_Barret

    No, they’ve said every year since it was shown that it was PS3 exclusive worldwide. I don’t feel entitled to anything, but I don’t like being misled, either. If you’re repeatedly telling something is something, I should be able to believe you.

    Forget install bases, and all that, you’re telling me that anyone who believed a statement made by these developers is ignorant, when even gullibility wouldn’t fit.

    The onus is on SE: leave room for error, at the very least. How can you fault someone for believing them? Should we just become cynics that take everything as a lie until proven otherwise? That a terrible way to live.

    #50 5 years ago
  51. Boris Fett

    Whether you choose to believe them or not, it’s not worth getting angry at them over. It is what it is, and at the end of the day going multi-platform only benefits everyone.

    #51 5 years ago
  52. zoopdeloop

    @49
    That’s true…SE had both XIII and Versus XIII in mind exclusively for the ps3 because they believed that the ps3 will have the same success and popularity the ps2 had.They eventually changed their mind with their main XIII title taking it multiplatform and at the same time (2 years ago) they released a Versus trailer being specific confirming and to avoid confusions like what happened with XIII that this will remain exclusive to the ps3(a way to ease the ps3 fans)

    Anyway there will be a lot of rage and disappointment if this also goes multiplatform (not just out of fanboyism)but because Versus will be compromised because of the limitations of Dvd’s and not taking advantage of the Blu Ray space given to work with…do expect the same “thing” with XIII all over again which disappointed many.

    Then again the “we’re looking into it” quote has been said by many devs before…example Konami said it with MGS4 many times before and after it’s ps3 release but it didn’t happen.

    According to SE’s recent statements they would not go against each other if one wants to work on a single console,on a specific format(hint at Nomura and Versus)
    so if i have to guess what’s going on i would say that either they’re trying to convince Nomura,or they’re trying along with Microsoft to see if they can do something to port Versus without compromising the whole game altogether so as Nomura tags along with it…off course this could also mean alarm to Sony “do something and support it to remain exclusive”

    Anyhow if this is going to happen and the game is not compromised to dvd’s limitations then bring it on…the more the merrier.But if it’s going to end up mediocre and released too late then they better drop the project altogether.

    #52 5 years ago
  53. zoopdeloop

    @51 for the above reasons it doesn’t.Not when you have two pretty much the same consoles but with a huge difference in disc space capacity from each other’s formats

    #53 5 years ago
  54. Erthazus

    @49 completely agree with that.

    But the point is, these guys like me that like Nomura’s games and quality expect from this AAA title something really big. MEGATON. for example, this was the SECOND reason on why i bought PS3.

    This generation if you ask me the best games are exclusives and with the choice of platform you can use it’s capabilities to show what that platform can do with this game. It’s really important.

    FFXIII Versus was an exclusive for Ps3 and they clearly hinted and said that it’s going to be a PS3 exclusive for years, but now let the shitstorm began. We are changing plans dramatically and looking forward for Xbox 360 development. Thats nasty.

    @56

    Halo is a license owned by Microsoft.

    Gears of War is one of those rare exceptions. It’s a franchise that has become “associated” with the 360, is a similar way to how, say, Metal Gear Solid has become associated with the PlayStation. The important difference here is that Final Fantasy is not a “PlayStation” franchise.

    Left 4 Dead I agree on, and I’ll never understand why it’s not multi-platform. Valve really should step up their PS3 game.

    Uncharted is a first party title. Those are the only reason to buy a specific console. Square Enix is third party.

    The same goes for Killzone. It is a first party title, so it is not going to appear on another format even if we wanted it to.

    Metal Gear Solid 4 should have been multi-platform, but much like Gears of War, MGS has very much become recognised as a console-specific franchise.

    Maybe I should have phrased what I said a little different. THIRD PARTY multi-platform development benefits everyone. First party titles are always going to be driven by the console manufacturers, obviously.

    @ everyone else, if the only titles that have shined for you this generation are platform exclusive titles, you seriously need to play more games. There are plenty of multi-format games that have been absolutely stellar.

    @everyone else
    a game being stellar is a lot different from a game that really “shines”

    @58 …and Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Dragon Age, Burnout Paradise, Super Street Fighter IV, Bayonetta, Fallout 3…

    exactly, pretty much all the exceptional, shining games are multiplat – the before mentioned Burnout and SSF4, Bayonetta, RDR (certainly looks like that so far), Ass Creed 2, DAO etc. LBP being an exception really. that and UC2 visuals wise.

    it all depends on your framework, aside from FF12 Squenix games stopped being impressive since early 2000s anyway.

    lol fallout 3 pissed me off i was falling through buildings and there was so many glitches i could walk through walls, i even load up the game and there was jus a black screen and my character. bbc2 is gd, dragon age not for me super street fighter 4 on that everyday lol bayonetta lol avp sold far more than that game did.

    #62 5 years ago
  63. DaMan

    I feel sorry for the people who judge the games based on sales.

    “lol bayonetta lol avp sold far more than that game did.”

    So what? Doesn’t stop it from being a masterpiece in game design on every level.

  65. Erthazus

    @60 i played many multiplatform titles so don’t say about it.
    Still you mentioned only 6 titles and someone said 2 titles like AC2 and Batman.
    I didn’t liked Fallout 3 (it’s obvious shitty game compared to F1-2) and Dragon Age is a little bit consolised and dissapointment for the die hard RPG fan that started playing PC RPG games such as Baldurs Gate.
    I play a lot of games multiplat or exclusives, don’t matter, but in my opinion Exclusives shines amongst others this gen. This generation it’s important for gamers, last generation it was important for companies. Last gen everybody just had Ps2 or Ps1 and be done with it.

    Yeap. Final Fantasy XIII Versus is a perfect shitstorm. Square Enix should announced it at the beggining that it is a multiplat. They teased for this game as a PS3 game for years, now internet explodes again.

    #65 5 years ago
  66. DaMan

    anyway.. about the topic, I refuse to believe Squenix can develop a decent product today, exclusive or not. way too many dissappointments from them already.

    #66 5 years ago
  67. The Hindle

    I wouldnt class Ac 2 amongst the elite of multi plats, id put Oblivion over that.

    “So what? Doesn’t stop it from being a masterpiece in game design on every level”

    yh u like it that does mean that ppl cant dislike it.
    @63 Sometimes sales do matter.

  69. The Hindle

    Mas Effect 2 and Uncharted 2 easily match any top tier multi platform game as well in my opinion.

    #69 5 years ago
  70. DaMan

    so anyway.. I also thought it takes them ridiculous amount of time to finish their projects, ffs The Third Birthday should’ve been out 3 times already.

    @68 not in this case :lol:

    Hindle – ME2 was boring for me, I’ve tried the PC version and couldn’t bring myself to finish it. so.. it’s all opinionated.

    #70 5 years ago
  71. Boris Fett

    @65 That was simply my short list. I can list many more if you so wish.

    Also, I grew up on PC RPGs. That doesn’t mean I need to approach one way and one way only. The most appealing thing about RPGs for me is in fact just how much diversity can be found in the genre.

    You also seem to forget that Dragon Age on the PC actually does have an entirely different, PC focused interface. And it’s gameplay, while not Baldur’s Gate, is perfectly fine. Of course it’s not Baldur’s Gate, they don’t have the right to use the DnD mechanics.

    Hey, don’t get me wrong, LittleBigPlanet, a console exclusive, is easily my Game of the Decade, but to say that *only* exclusive can shine is down right silly.

    yh basically this game should be an exclusive and if its not then thats how it is, hopefully they keep the good aspects of the game, and if they hve to cut anything out they should for the xbox and give them it as dlc paid or free i dnt care jus dont cut it out on blu-ray.

    #75 5 years ago
  76. Galactic_Barret

    It has to maintain parity at launch. All 3rd party PS3/360 titles have to be the same, content-wise, which may be why this is a big deal to some. Any content that can’t fit in the 360 version, doesn’t go into either version.

    Even if a PS3 wants to be happy a former exclusive is getting into the hands of more gamers, there are policies in place to keep that game from fully utilizing the system’s advantages that developers would have able to pre-MP status.

    #76 5 years ago
  77. Gadzooks!

    I find it both baffling and very pathetic that fanboys would be outraged, or even care, that a previously exclusive title is going multiplatform.

    You are very obviously stating that you care only about the platform and not about the game at all.

    That’s really sad.

    Citing cut content as an excuse for your childish fanboy outburst is simply not valid. The 360 version might have to ship on multiple discs but you know what… the people who buy it on the 360 really won’t care.

    I played Lost Odyssey on the 360 and FF13 on the PS3 and all the things that made LO a great game were not even vaguely impacted by it coming on FOUR discs. Similarly I didnt for one second think ‘wow. not swapping discs once every 20 hours of play is great’ when I was playing FF13.

    These strawman arguments are not fooling anyone. Drop the fanboyism and enjoy GAMES, not BRANDS you corporate tools.
