244w ago - If you've been following videogame news, you know that Sony addresses all questions about unannounced information in the same way: "We don't comment on rumors and speculation."
However, there's a tidbit burning up the Internet as we speak, and it says a big announcement is coming tomorrow.
Sony won't say if that's true, but the chatter is interesting enough that it actually got Sony to launch a comment from SCEA PR Manager Al De Leon about what the rumored news won't be.
To quote: "As we have stated previously, we do not have plans for a PS3 price drop, and any rumors to that effect are false and are the result of speculation," De Leon wrote.
"SCEA remains focused on the long-term momentum of PS3. With the industry's best software lineup this year, combined with our most aggressive marketing campaign to date, we remain confident in our approach and the value we're delivering with PS3."
That's all well and good, but it doesn't douse the rumors that the news is actually that the PlayStation 2 will be dropping to $99.99. What will tomorrow bring? We'll have to wait and see.
282w ago - In an interview with Japanese magazine Dengeki PlayStation, Tetsuya Nomura offers some interesting details about Final Fantasy VII Advent Children Complete, Blu-ray version of the film out there is already a certain time. We thought so far only a few bits of footage had been added, but little information and a complete absence of release date proved to be quite strange.
In fact, according to Nomura, these are passages of the whole scenario that have been added and others who have been modified. The Japanese release date has been decided, but it will have to wait (probably to the event DK Î£3713 in early August) so that it is unveiled. Nomura also notes that a big announcement that should accompany the release date, without giving more details. Such vagueness should encourage the wildest rumors.
Tetsuya Nomura is also rapidly on the development of Final Fantasy XIII Versus, a topic that had already provoked a general cafouillage a few weeks ago. The director of Thursday confides that the team is currently working above is very reduced, for the simple reason that the team kinematics is dedicated primarily to Advent Children Complete and programmers lend a hand to those of FFXIII.
No, really, Versus XIII should not arrive before long. As a consolation, we can expect to have FFXIII...
