Immediately following a Microsoft representative’s comments, Rob Dyer from Sony Computer Entertainment America stepped on the stage and shared his thoughts about the Final Fantasy series.
“When you think about Final Fantasy it is truly synonymous with PlayStation. When you think about Final Fantasy VII it really made the PlayStation 1 a truly mass machine. Now to Final Fantasy X, it helped make hype about what the PlayStation 2 was. Today, we’re talking about Final Fantasy XIII and you know you’re getting a true Blu-ray experience on one disc,” said Rob Dyer, Senior Vice President of Publisher Relations at SCEA.
His comment was followed by loud cheers and jeers by the audience.
“So, I want to thank the Final Fantasy XIII team for making a great game. Do me a favor tonight, check out my post on the PlayStation Blog where you can find out about the exclusive content you can only get on PlayStation.”
The exclusive content Dyer is talking about are campaign codes for a secret in-game item for use in Final Fantasy XIV and a chance to be a beta tester. This is the same promotion Square Enix ran in Japan for the first print on Final Fantasy XIII.
