291w ago - Remember that [Register or Login to view links] Square Enix had running for the past week? If you do, you'll be happy to know this has nothing to do with it.

Instead, it appears that Microsoft may be getting a new Final Fantasy title... for Xbox Live Arcade.

A [Register or Login to view links] has surfaced for Microsoft's Japanese site and it has the words "finalfantasy4" in the URL. Speculation is suggesting that the title may in fact be Final Fantasy IV: The After for XBLA.

Japanese gamers saw Final Fantasy IV: The After arrive on cellphones, but the rest of the world was out of luck. Could this be the solution to the get the title in the hands of the rest of us? Let's hope so.
 

New Dead Rising & Lost Planet May Go Multiplatform

291w ago - Capcom's Keiji Inafune has [Register or Login to view links] that the company is planning new instalments in the Dead Rising and Lost Planet franchise, hinting that the forthcoming sequels may be released for multiple platforms.

To quote: "We're finally putting out new Dead Rising and Lost Planet games! As a main principle we're thinking about multi-platform, and expanding upon both slightly from the Xbox 360 versions," said Inafune, head of Research & Development and Online Business for the Japanese publisher.

Given that the majority of Capcom's franchises have been released for multiple consoles recently, it shouldn't come as a surprise that the publisher is thinking about taking the same route with sequels to Dead Rising and Lost Planet.

As many will no doubt recall, the original Lost Planet was released exclusively for the Xbox 360 back in 2006, before finally making its way to PlayStation 3 the following year. Similarly, Devil May Cry 4 eventually found its way onto Microsoft's console and PC having originally been conceived as a PS3 exclusive. Stay tuned.

291w ago - Eurogamer (linked above) claims to have knowledge of a PS2 version of WipEout Pulse in development, but an official Sony statement on the as-yet unannounced title muddles the actual status of the futuristic racer.

To quote: Sony declined to comment directly on WipEout Pulse for PS2, but told Eurogamer in a statement: "There are over 9.5m PS2s in the UK and we will continue to support this large userbase with software on an ongoing basis.

"Of course, we need to make a business decision that there will be sufficient demand for a particular product, but we see franchises such as SingStar and Buzz still selling very well - for example SingStar Abba which launched in December proved very successful.

"With regards to other titles we will judge each on an individual basis and make decisions accordingly."
 

Video Game Titles That May Not Make 2009

291w ago - 2009 already looks to be a great year for gaming, the unfortunate truth when it comes to a stellar year is titles will be delayed to avoid the usual "hassles" attributed to a "clogged" year.

Here are a few titles we believe gamers will have to wait for:

The next Zelda game
After the slightly lacking Twilight Princess, the team behind Zelda have been working on the latest adventures of Link since 2006. After delaying 'Twilight Princess' for a Wii release, the team have had over two years working on new ideas with Shigeru Miyamoto's comments suggesting that the next instalment will breathing new life into the series like Ocarina Of Time did over a decade ago.

The last we heard was from a December issue of Official Nintendo Magazine in which stated the developers were still in the planning stages and that we'd be lucky to hear anything at E3 09 but promised some new information before the year runs out. It looks like it is going to be an awfully long wait...

Heavy Rain
One of the bigger titles hitting PS3, Heavy Rain has been confirmed as of last year for a 2009 release which is all well and good when the game is still pretty far from going gold. Not that I doubt developer 'Quantic Dream's ability to create a great game, I just wouldn't be...
 

Rumor: Sony May Release a White PlayStation 3, Model CECHH01

295w ago - The folks over at [Register or Login to view links] diligently dug into [Register or Login to view links] to find out that Sony is exploring the possibility of adding a ceramic white PlayStation 3 (Model CECHH01) to their lineup.

There's even plenty of photos to show that this is a serious possibility, and Sony Computer Entertainment America tells BLAST it's a possibility, but not to bet on one way or the other just yet.

"There are many FCC filings like this each year," said SCEA's Alex Armour in a recent interview. "We haven't made any announcements about upcoming PS3 plans, but are comfortable with our current two SKU strategy. We are continually evaluating the market trends and consumer input to determine the appropriate PS3 models for our territory."

What does that mean? If they think they'd sell a bunch, they'll release a white PS3.

What Sony did do was clear the governmental hurdles necessary to bring the product forward. And this all depends on whether or not the PlayStation 3 has the year everyone thinks it's going...
