Final Fantasy VII Limited Edition PlayStation 3 to Arrive in April

50°
297w ago - Square-Enix has revealed the first image of the limited edition Final Fantasy VII PS3.

Pictured below, you'll see the Final Fantasy VII style PS3. Dubbed "Cloud Black," this PS3 will come individually numbered and packaged with a Blu-ray version of Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete.

Of course, the real appeal of getting Advent Children Complete on Blu-ray is the Final Fantasy XIII demo. Oddly enough, Advent Children will have the option of English voices, but it'll lack the option for English subtitles if watching in Japanese.

Also, the Final Fantasy XIII demo will not feature English subtitles or voice work. Too bad.

Complete package details:

- "Cloud Black" HDD 160GB PS3
- Final Fantasy XIII Trail Version Set (FFXIII demo)
- Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete Blu-ray disc

The Cloud Black PS3 will come with a 160GB HDD and release on April 16th for 49,980 yen ($550 give or take a bit). No word on an oversea release, though.
 

Blame Microsoft for Final Fantasy XIII Delay on PlayStation 3

298w ago - There is word trickling out of a business meeting today by Square Enix, that Final Fantasy XIII will not be hitting our shores till mid 2010.

This is definitely unacceptable coming from a company known for its stellar RPG franchise. Square Enix is to blame for this mishap, but the blame also falls squarely on Microsoft.

Square Enix has mentioned in the past that the PS3 version was practically finished and going through the final touch-ups for release in Japan this year. So, why is it that the US and Europe will be getting the game one year later? Square Enix execs have made it crystal clear that the game will not hit our shores until the porting/development has finished for the Xbox 360.

In a recent meeting, Square Enix revealed that the earliest US and Europe would see Final Fantasy XIII would be in April of 2010. Originally, the execs at Square Enix hinted that the game would arrive in 2009 for the US territory. However, this all changed after last E3, where the studio heads revealed that a deal has been struck just before the conference with Microsoft, for a simultaneous release on the PS3 and Xbox 360.

When I first heard that there was going to be a delay due to the decision to port over Final Fantasy XIII to the Xbox 360, I was okay with getting a late 2009 release in...
 

Dissidia: Final Fantasy Officially Launches Tomorrow for PSP

50°
302w ago - Originally announced in May 2007, Dissidia: Final Fantasy instantly intrigued Final Fantasy gamers all around the world. They were initially sceptical, but at the 2008 Jump Festa, Western media got their hands on the game and showered it with glowing praise.

Since then, there have been numerous high profile character announcements, coupled with continued endorsement from the gaming media and this have culminated in one of the most anticipated PSP releases of the year in Japan.

It all comes to an end tomorrow though, as the game will officially be released to the Japanese public and we're eagerly waiting to see what the sales figures are like for the game as the potential is huge!

Although there is rumor that the street date for the release has been broken today, we shouldn't let that marr the occasion that will mark the release of this celebration of 20 years of Final Fantasy tomorrow on the 18th of December, 2008.
 

Fact or Fiction: Final Fantasy XIII's 2009 Release Date And More!

302w ago - Once again, John Curry and Rod Oracheski are back to tell us what they think about some of the week's most important video game news and issues. To quote:

Fact or Fiction: Final Fantasy XIII will come out in 2009.

John Curry: Fact

I want to say fiction. God, I hope the Final Fantasy series dies a slow and painful death so that I can laugh at it for all times, but the truth is that there is still a group of diehard freaks out there who are as loyal to the FF series as the Dungeons & Dragons and Magic: The Gathering nerds and will force the release of Final Fantasy XIII in the next year.

When that happens, be prepared to listen to all of them whine about why it isn't a PS3 exclusive and, more importantly, how all of those who review the game are idiots because they didn't state that the game was the greatest thing ever made.

Rod Oracheski: Fact

It seems to be on track for the Japanese release, and I can't see the localization taking all that long. They've gotten pretty good at it over the years, at least on the speed side of things (there are still the odd wonky translations here and there). Will Versus XIII make it out in 2009? That one I'm not sure I'd bet on.

Fact or Fiction: The Spike Video Game Awards show is starting...
