FF is def going to the xbox. They announced it at E3 last year. Being an xbox owner, I'm pretty damn happy.Hey, that's pretty neat. This may be the first FF that I'll play in years.
Is it going to be a sequel for anything, or is it completely stand-alone in it's "own" setting, as FF tends to be?
It is cvompletely stand-alone and just for everyone's own knowledge...Square is also working on FFXIII-Versus which is still slated at a PS3 exclusive. The only game that is being ported, as of right now is FFXIII. This is no big deal. For those of us that are die-hard FF lovers (and fan-boys, as well), the PS3 version will be better anyways.
A: the PS3 version will be on a blu-ray formatted disk...the XBOX 360 won't
B: the PS3 version will more-than-likely have more added content, as well as downloadable. Square is just trying to branch out and see what the reception will be on the XBOX platform.
C: the most energy and time is going into the PS3 version, with the port-over being second hand, as of now.
In other words...don't get your panties in a bunch...it will still be better on the PS3, and look at it this way...God of War 3 is still exclusive!!!
A: Doesn't matter in my opinion, even if the game is too large there's always multidisc which has worked well enough for Square before.
B: Downloadable content on PS3? ROFLMAO, go look at what's happening out there atm, right now PS3 isn't getting downloadble content due to the crappy network they use for it, if it's for additional content xbox live is totally outowning it.
C: Problem with PS3 is the structure of the console, it's around 10x easier to make a well performing game for the xbox than the PS3 and this really shows. The PS3 is WAAAAAY more powerful than the xbox but why isn't it outperforming the xbox, just check the graphic comparisons on gamespot for example. In terms of PCs I'd say the PS3 is a quadcore with sli and Xbox is a singlecore with a old graphics card, but damn they are performing equal =P
Yes I used to be a PS2 fanboy earlier I even have 2 PS2 consoles but there is no way I'm ever going to buy to a buy a PS3:
1. The cost from the start to now, NOT worth it
2. Friend of mine has both consoles, he barely touches the PS3 and just buys everything for the 360 instead.
3. Another friend of mine sold his PS3 and bought a 360 due to friend above
4. Both consoles have hardware issues, thing is I could prolly get 2x xboxes for the price of one ps3
For reasons why Sony exclusive games are coming to the 360? Well check GTA, MS payed a ton for the DLC pack that is coming out now. And damn that DLC system they use is working well.... I've spent almost as much on DLC as on retail games, and like I mentioned earlier it's easier to develop for the 360 than Sony. I have one more reason to hate sony myself and that's their support.... I have never seen such crap customer support as Sony not that I can say anything positive about MS support either but Sony ranks lower.
