78w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fabio Santana of Brazil has shared a fresh Final Fantasy XIV PS3 update today including an interview and new details below, as follows:
When it was first launched back in 2010, Final Fantasy XIV for PC was criticized by players and the media, and eventually the planned PS3 version was postponed. Since then, Square Enix decided to reshuffle the leading developers of the game, with Naoki Yoshida now acting as Director and Producer.
His challenge is to helm the 2.0 version of Final Fantasy XIV, which is a re-imagination of the original release. It will mark a new beginning for the game when it gets launched this winter, coinciding with the release of the anticipated PS3 version.
The game was not ready to be demoed publicly at E3 this year, but we got a chance to see a brief live demo behind closed doors of the game still running on a PC. It featured lush visuals, with a richly detailed character running through a forest area with dense vegetation and impressive lighting effects passing through foliage.

103w ago - Sony Brazil Manager Fabio Santana has posted up a Q&A interview today covering Final Fantasy XIII-2 for PlayStation 3, which aims to prove the time traveling sequel even surpasses the original game!
To quote: This week, Final Fantasy XIII-2 for PS3 is hitting stores across Japan with critical praise, garnering perfect scores from respected gaming magazines Famitsu and Dengeki PlayStation.
Granted, the original FFXIII is the best-selling PS3 title in Japan by a wide margin, but this direct sequel isn't resting on the laurels of its predecessor. For starters, it will offer a dynamic narrative, addressing one of the main complaints about FFXIII - linearity.
The new game also has a darker and more serious tone, in line with the conclusion of the previous game, putting the glitter and glam of FFX-2.
When FFXIII-2 reaches US stores on January 31st, making it the fastest localization cycle among numbered episodes of the franchise - it will also deliver an improved combat system, an area full of mini games, branched dialogue trees with NPCs, and even multiple endings based on your time-traveling journey.
