Final Fantasy XIII comes to 360

at 15:09 - 14th, July 2008

Microsoft and Squeenix just announced that Final Fantasy XIII (13) is coming out for the 360 as well as the ps3.

going to be coming out the same day for both versions.

good for 360 because their E3 was ho-hum up until this point.

still no mention of a motion remote.

Oh yes!! I pretty much no longer need to buy a PS3 aside from MGS4 which now I am sure they will port over.

MS had an awesome showing this year. Unfortunate about you having to purchase clothing on marketplace for your avatar. But aside from that though it's like doing what Nintendo does but better.

the only two things of interest here is the avatar system and the squeenix announcement.

and from what i've been reading it was a pretty dead show

and yes, i still think MGS4 will be ported

you don't think you'd want to get a ps3 for the blue ray at some point though?

principle? and i'm almost 100% sure that MGS4 will come out for the 360 at some point, because it'd be stupid for konami to not port it, if they like money.

Honestly the only thing which for me makes sense to buy the PS3 were to play my PS2 games, blu ray and some exclusives.

With Square moving over, Konami is sure to for MGS4. So scratch that. A blu ray player will come down in price to dirt cheap eventually and PS2 I can still go in the store and buy one.

The Netflix deal is huge whether you use it or not. Avatar system is a casual add on needed. Fallout 3 DLC always rockin. Rock Band while on other systems you will still get more DLC via live marketplace so go Rock Band.

i mean, mgs4 was a flop everywhere but the states, and the states is owned by 360's and wii's

not to mention the fact that connecting to computers through a ps3 is like 5 billion times better then a 360 :P

Oh and Fable 2 is another big one as it was a triple a title.

Galaga sequel and of course more casual via live with the gameshow type games.

Maybe if your lucky Nintendo will announce you can read your roms from the flash drives and stream them ;)

everyone is anticipating nintendo to have the best show, but i can't imagine what they would do to big a show stopper. they'll announce some old ip's returning and claim victory by numbers and call it a day. maybe we'll have a new zelda announced, which would be nice, but i doubt it, still early.

so i'm ready to be disappointed with nintendo's show.

Sony on the other hand has nothing to lose now. finally got some momentum going, let's see what they do with it.

Well I think Square stole the momentum they had.

I really not sure what fan site you read but Nintendo like other 2 is just as anticipated not more. I mean this is Nintendo. Unless there is rumor of ANOTHER peripheral lol

Hooking up the 360 via media center is easy as pie. Not sure what problems your experienced or heard of.

plus theres always the hope of that ps3 remake of ff7

Alex Alex
News comment 17 | User comment 4957 | 15:50 - 14th, Jul 2008

i think it was kotaku and kombo.
kombo actually has a poll up and 50% of people think nintendo will 'win' the E3 shows.

anyway, christophe and john both had the same problems of formats. the 360 doesn't recognize avi files out the box, you need to download an app to help with that.

Christophe Christophe

media center on the 360 is bawls, it doesnt navigate properly, you cant browse and it doesnt recognize like 3/4 of all file types

Yeah it is to avoid the whole copy protection crap. But it is an easy work around these days.

I think if FF XIII does successful on 360 (Yes it will!) then probably they will be considered for future remakes, ports, new FF games.

In other words today marked the day Sony held exclusive hold on that franchise key title.

News comment 22 | User comment 4957 | 15:55 - 14th, Jul 2008

wouldn't it be something if it suddenly became a 360 exclusive, or even a xbox 3 exclusive franchise?
from nintendo to sony to microsoft lol

what about RE5?

Christophe Christophe
News comment 24 | User comment 766 | 15:56 - 14th, Jul 2008

personally id rather see ps3 pull out victorious in the end (over the 360)

lesser of two evils in my book

i used to think like that, and i still hate microsoft in general but that's another topic/flamewar that i don't want to get into here.

i just love seeing the big guys topple, especially after all the mistakes sony made with the ps3.

Carl Carl
News comment 26 | User comment 1159 | 16:00 - 14th, Jul 2008

Yeah RE5 is not really a surprise. Though you never know with trends these days. Seem's MS is the only one to pull off exclusivity on titles.

i should have checked this at work. FF13 was the only thing which could have moved me over to PS3(very unlikely). Hope we don't have to wait too long.

News comment 29 | User comment 1159 | 8:51 - 15th, Jul 2008

They are still claiming that FF VERSUS 13 is still "exclusive" to PS3. But that would just be retarded to bring over only a portion of the story over.

But this just prompts Sony to really get some solid titles. It's like when they are in doubt hey lets do another God of War or Ratchet and Clank.

It's like they lost what was special about the PS2 while trying to copy the 360 in doing online market place and home media hub.
