Welcome to the great Star Ocean
As part of Microsoft's strategy for staying relevant, they've took popular franchises and made sure they only show up on XBOX platforms
Star Ocean: The Last Hope was one such example of that, going on to become the XBOX 360's best selling title in Japan. Now signs are pointing towards a Playstation 3 release. According to online retailer GameFly, Star Ocean is to make an appearance on the..
You'll be getting Dissidia on September 4th, just a week after the US release of the game. You'll also be getting extra stuff such as an Arcade Mode and some balanced gameplay. Mark the date on your calendars Final Fantasy fans.
Square Enix announced The Last Remnant as a multiplatform title
Even so, it only came out on the XBOX 360 and sold pretty badly. The Playstation 3 version has not been mentioned since. Well until today, when Square Enix's CEO Yoichi Wada stated "it's tough on the development side of things to say that you'll release a game on multiple platforms but end up not doing so, Square Enix has to think..
Indicative of the cheers that erupted due to the announcement of Final Fantasy VII's release on the PSN during Sony's E3 press conference, the Square title has gone on to sell over 100,000 copies in just two weeks
Quite astonishing sales figures really. It makes you wonder what would happen if they fully remade the game doesn't it?
XBOX 360 uses DVDs
Playstation 3 uses Blu-Rays. There is a massive difference in the amount of space the media can contain. Final Fantasy XIII was being developed specifically for the PS3. Now it's coming out on the XBOX 360, people are worried things are going to be cut from the game so it can fit on a DVD. There's "no chance" of that happening according to Square Enix.The team is..
The PSone Square onslaught continues, as the ESRB rate Final Fantasy Tactics presumably for distribution via the Playstation Network in North America
Seeing as the original PSone release never made it across the shores to Europe, we'd be surprised if it popped up on the European store. Alas, there's always that vastly superior PSP title to get hold...
Courtesy of Kazuya Takahashi, here's a first little snippet of some concept art for Final Fantasy XIV Online - it looks like Final Fantasy alright, eh? The game is due on Playstation 3 and PC next year
You can check out the full size concept art on Kotaku.
At some point today the Playstation Store will be updated with Square's classic Final Fantasy VII available for download to be playable on the PSP and PS3
Keep checking the store to see when the game hits!
Igniting a few sharp intakes, Sony today announced that the next entry in the Final Fantasy series, Final Fantasy XIV will be a Playstation 3 exclusive
A short trailer of the game was shown but few details, apart from a 2010 release date, were announced.
Final Fantasy XIII was announced for Spring 2010 at Microsoft's XBOX 360 conference; but the Japanese version is still on its way on Playstation 3 this Winter as confirmed by Square Enix's E3 line-up listings
There had been mumblings of a delay but it seems like the game is still on track. Thankfully.
Here's the trailer to Square Enix's recently announce Front Mission Evolved
There's a pretty cool explosion in the video. There are also some nice looking robots. It's hard to assume much else though, because, well this is a cinematic trailer. There's zero gameplay in here. Hey, it all looks like it would probably be quite good though. Right?
Presumably in a move to tie in with the American release of Final Fantasy: Advent Children Complete this June 2nd, an ESRB search has popped up that SCEA will be publishing Final Fantasy VII on the PSP and PS3
Europe will probably follow suite when we get the movie in July. Expect this announcement to pop up somewhere at E3.
Guess who loves the PSP? Square Enix
To celebrate they've just announced an exclusive GameStop bundle including Dissidia. But what do you get for your $199 "bones"? Well: a copy of Dissidia, a copy of Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, a 2GB memory stick and a special branded Dissidia PSP-3000 - except it's just a bog-standard silver PSP really. Someone's probably really stoked about..
Final Fantasy XIII producer Yoshinori Kitase has warned that the XBOX 360 version of the game may only have English voiceovers due to a lack of space - the Playstation 3 will be unaffected due to Blu-Ray
Obviously, when we talk about XIII its for PS3 and Xbox with PS3 being on Blu ray there would be enough memory, but on Xbox probably not, said Kitase. At the moment were thinking of..
Square Enix producer Yoshinore Kitase reckons there are no plans to release a disc based demo for Final Fantasy XIII in the West, however, Kitase reckons a PS3-only demo would be unfair considering the 360 release of the game over here
He did conclude that he "would like to check" the possibility of offering the demo as a download. We're not quite sure how feasible 5GB's of demo are, but,..
For now we're chalking this down as speculation but until we get the actual figures we suppose it's best reporting on the preliminary: the release of Advent Children Complete looks like it has pushed Playstation 3 sales figures in the region to somewhere near 57,000
The week prior to the blu-ray's release saw Playstation 3 figures at around 16,000 so it's a significant jump if the reports are to be..
Here's an idea movie companies: bundle an exclusive, hotly anticipated demo with your blu-ray movies and achieve monumental sales
The idea has been declared fool-proof in Japan where the blu-ray of Final Fantasy: Advent Children Complete sold 100,000 copies; with a little help from the Final Fantasy XIII demo it included. The movie easily outsold any other blu-ray anime releases in Japan, 2008's..
Here's a cutscene from Final Fantasy Versus XIII which was shown behind closed doors at last years Tokyo Game Show
While we haven't the foggiest idea what's going on, we know that watching the cut-scene made us feel really upset, so we presume there is some tear-worthy content going on underneath the emo-hairstyles and amazing rendering.
When Dragon Quest IX got delayed, most people expected that would have a knock-on effect with Final Fantasy XIII
Not so, one lucky gamer who got his hands on the Final Fantasy: Advent Children Complete blu-ray has already completed the bundled Final Fantasy XIII demo, which concludes in the above "Winter 2009" teaser. Japanese gamers should expect the game before the year is out.
Final Fantasy means money in Japan
In fact, we're surprised Japan don't replace the Yen with copies of various Final Fantasy games. Alas, this weekend in Tokyo Square Enix held private screenings for the upcoming Final Fantasy Advent Children Complete movie. It's probably the only blu-ray release that will get its own bundled, special-edition Playstation 3 system. Do you know what though? It's not..
The cult-classic Final Fantasy VII is now available for download from the Japanese Playstation Store
Coming mere weeks before the blu-ray release of Final Fantasy: Advent Children Complete (and the Final Fantasy XIII demo that comes with that), the PSone re-release will costs just 1500 yen (£10/$15) and weighs in at 1.7GB. No word on a western...
Final Fantasy XIII is a Playstation 3 game first and foremost
Sure it's getting a US and European release on the XBOX 360, but it's still a PS3 game. Which means developer's Square Enix are committed to using all of the Playstation's power instead of "scaling down" in order to make it compatible for the XBOX 360 too. When prompted about the Final Fantasy XIII demo in Japanese magazine..
Rumours flittering around Japan right now are suggesting that Square Enix are on the verge of announcing a new action game
The interest comes from a backpage preview of the next issue of Official Playstation Magazine which shows a mysterious character carrying a giant sword. The mystery game is yet to be disclosed but no doubt we'll hear something soon enough. A new IP perhaps? We'll have to wait..
Atlus' super popular Persona series is to finally get it's fourth iteration on store shelves this coming March 13th
