Default Make up your mind Squenix! WTF is this about FF13!?

http://kotaku.com/5053287/final-fant...to-360-version

HUH Enix? So FF wont suffer from multi-platform asset sharing on PS3, but it'll look the same on both?

WHAT THE FUCK IS YOU SPEAKING JAPAN!?

I want this magic wand you people own that suddenly makes things AWESOME and unique yet identical on both.

Fuck that, I want the LSD you people are trippin' on.

I thought it was pretty clear. They'll optimize it on the PS3 so it'll look as good as an exclusive. Then they'll port it to the 360 and optimize that version for 360. It may have worse sound and maybe less content, and remember they have to program those screens that say "please insert disc 6"
On the other hand, it may have more detailed textures on the 360, if they can't pull an uncharted and do texture streaming.

"He also wanted to calm fears that the already long wait for FFXIII will be even longer, now that it's coming to Microsoft's console."

Can anybody actually see what he said on this point? They keep saying they'll be day and date, I'd like to know how consideirng they keep saying they won't be doing the 360 version until the PS3 one is done. I guess localization takes as long as porting to 360, but I can't actually read the text in those scans.

That's still not "identical".

This situation reeks. They're not even starting the x360 port until the PS3 version is finished for JAPAN. Then they're not going to release the NA/Europe PS3 version until the x360 version is done. (inb4 I get flamed for not being a gamer and caring about exclusives...NO! I don't care that the 360 gets XIII, I want them to b/c everything I've heard about this game makes it sound like it will be awesome, it's just retarded any way you look at the below

So assuming the game comes out by June 2009 in Japan, NA will not see it until at least June 2010 which would say Europe at LEAST November 2010, if they're lucky. These dates I'm using are being 'nice' to SE.

So why does Last Remnant come to x360 before the PS3? Why not delay the x360 version to coincide w/ the PS3 release date?

Smells rotten, and I want my games.

Speculation is that Microsoft threw money at SE.

Thus the 'reeks' and 'smells rotten'.

This is the only reason I see that the x360 version is essentially a timed exclusive for LR, but FFXIII gets held back for possibly a year from NA/Europe shelves.

It shouldn't be speculation at this point. The mere fact that you're essentially going to delay one revenue stream in favor of another when you know quite well that the game will sell millions on a single console alone, not to mention you'll most likely delay it for as long as you have to to make a second version even WORK... pretty much means you're getting some sort of compensation.
