A scary thought about Square-Enix's Final Fantasy XIII on the Xbox 360

Forums - Gaming Discussion - A scary thought about Square-Enix's Final Fantasy XIII on the Xbox 360

Has anyone else truely thought of this? How it is infact a poison pill for the Xbox to have Final Fantasy 13 multi-platform...?

Allow me to explain; just ask yourself how many X-Box owners are going to buy the game. I read some of the threads and many X-Box are prediction 3-4mil sold at worst. I would not be surprised if some would predict more... but problem is that FF XIII is not going to be just one game. It is likely to have several spin-offs.

What are the people who bought the FF XIII game on the XBox going to do after having played the game and suddenly realise that there is more of it but only available on the PS3? The truth is... if reports are to be believed, some of the other games are even better than initial core.

This is a poison pill for the XBox. Just imagine if someone told you, Halo 4 was going to be multi-platform but PS3 owners will only be able to play the initial core, 20% while the rest will be released exclusively for the X-Box. FF XIII core will have an independant storyline but the other games will be set in the Fabula Nova Crystallis universe aswell.

 

oh well... just food for thought... one could be tempted to say, that as an x-box owners, one should not even buy the game and simply not get interested in the series.



I am a Gamer... I play games and not consoles. I have a PC and Console on which I game... I like games. End of Story!

i think you verry much overrate the ff XIII spin-offs. I think xbox users will propably look to the last renmant,star ocean or other rpgs :)



Yeah that's probably a little overstated. I mean I could see a few doing this, but not anything that would actually be noticeable or appreciable.

What if a FFXIII spinoff goes to the DS? Would that mean that nobody should buy the "core"?



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

That and i think you overestimate their exclusivity.

FFV13 is likely no longer exclusive, but square is waiting until shortly before FF13 is released (or shortly before FFV13) to announce it for more impact.

 



If you mean Versus, I get the feeling it will also go multiplatform. "It's staying exclusive to console X" apparently means jack shit anymore.



If it sells so well SE will most likely release the spinoffs on the 360, if they didn't they would be throwing away money.



Well if FF13 sells well on the 360 then it's probably a pretty safe bet that Square-Enix will release all the HD spin-offs on the system as well.

Final Fantasy Versus XIII is not a Spin-Off

it is just two different Director's who wanted to each make their own vision of FFXIII.
