Final Fantasy Versus XIII is "For PlayStation 3 Only Worldwide" Whenever It Comes Out

ff13v Real time footage from Final Fantasy Versus XIII was drizzled in between clips, very old clips, of Noctis in a limousine at Square Enix’s Tetsuya Nomura Closed Mega Theater. And this real time footage consisted of Noctis and Stella talking without any voice acting. We’re still going to have to wait to see if Final Fantasy Versus XIII can produce action scenes as dramatic as the full motion clips of Noctis teleporting and throwing swords.


Final Fantasy Versus XIII was the final clip Square Enix showed us and it ended with “For PlayStation 3 Only Worldwide” with no release date. Interestingly, Final Fantasy XIII’s clip, which also consisted of a lot of recycled clips, closed with a 2009 release window “For PlayStation 3.” Back at E3 Square Enix said the Xbox 360 version of Final Fantasy XIII would come out the same day as the PlayStation 3 release in North America. I hope this doesn’t mean Final Fantasy XIII is going to get pushed back until 2010…

    Ugh, I don’t understand what’s with their secrecy with FFXIII. If it is really coming out in 2009 in Japan, they have little more than a year before the latest possible launch (I don’t know if Japan has a holiday buying rush like the US, but if they do I’m sure SE will want it out in time for that). Time to start giving the public some real details about the game.

    That said I think it’s a lousy decision to hold the US launch just so the Xbox 360 port can come out at the same time. This has nothing to do with console preference – if it’s ready, why not release it? It’s not a problem for them that the PS3 port of Last Remnant is releasing later than the 360 one. Its not like the Xbox 360 owners would be losing anything if their port’s not ready yet. I can’t see their North American audience being too thrilled about another half/whole year wait tacked on to what’s been years of waiting since the 2006 reveal.

    I’d say that if Versus XIII’s sales do not impress, we’ll see an Xbox 360 port eventually.

    2009 for playstation 3 is becauase Japan only gets PS3 version not the 360 version, thats why they state that its for PS3. I guess once the Japanese one is out, we wait half a year + more till it get it into english and then port to XBOX 360 hope they started to do english already
