Dissidia: Final Fantasy Officially Launches Tomorrow for PSP

50°
292w 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!

292w 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.

Square Enix Was Interested in Final Fantasy XI on PlayStation 3

100°
293w ago - Square Enix has revealed that they were releasing a version of FFXI for the PlayStation 3, but they ran into a small hitch... the Sony rep they were talking to about a PS3 version actually quit the company!

To quote: But when we caught up with the FFXI development team at the Fan Fest event in Hollywood, California over the weekend, we learned an interesting tidbit: It turns out Square Enix was indeed looking into the possibility of releasing a version of FFXI for the PS3, until they ran into a small snag.

"Initially we were in talks with a representative from Sony [to achieve this], but it appears that that person quit," said FFXI producer Hiromichi Tanaka, inducing laughter from the rest of the team. Tanaka also explained why it's a little more complicated to make the PS2 version work than, say, simply releasing some sort of patch or update for the PS3.

"[Current] PS3s don't have PS3-side PS2 emulation, and it doesn't look like Sony has any plans to address that issue. For that kind of thing to even be conceivable, it would have to be on a disc. Digital downloads wouldn't work for this. The disc has to be in the system for the emulator to work."
