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 :)

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.

 

 

I don't think they've made a decision yet at all, but are just taking a "wait and see" approach.

If FFXIII comes out and sells like 4:1 on the PS3 (not saying this will happen) and the PS3 Userbase is booming (compared to the 360) then I think it will stay Exclusive.

If the PS3 version outsells the 360 version 1.5:1 and the userbases are still close in EU/NA, then it probably would go Multi.

But since this is all 2+ years away, a lot can happen.

 

i predict 8-9 million for ps3 or near to it lifetime.

and possibly 2 million on 360 lifetime.

RE: ff13 versus, may go multiplat. it really does seem now that analysts were right ages ago in that huge 3rd party exclusives will be a thing of the past.

the only games that will indefinatly remeain exclusive are 1st party games owned and funded by thier respected companies, or games like gears series or resistance series for example that arnt 1st party.... but are 3rd partys heavily funded and supported to develop specifcly on thier platform.



...not much time to post on here anymore, used to be some good ol times on VGchartz...

Playstation Fan for life... PSN: Skeeuk - XBL: SkeeUK - Steam/Uplay/Origin: Skeeuk

Miss the VGCHARTZ of 2008 - 2013...

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.

 

Yeah it is. Or are we gonna consider Agito XIII not a spin-off then? FF XIII is the main series...Agito XIII, Versus XIII, etc. are spin-offs (though Versus at least looks better than FF XIII >_> lol). It's either a spin-off or it isn't.

 

Spin-off to me implies a direct link to the prior game in one way or another. FFVersus13 is to be an Independant story altogether, just taking place in the same Universe. I also feel that calling Versus a spin-off discredits the game before it is even made.


Considering both games are being developed concurrently, I don't view Versus as a true spin-off

So...the Chocobo games aren't spin-offs? Neither are the countless Ivalice Alliance games? etc.

Just because it's a spin-off doesn't mean it's BAD...it's just less important than the main game but in Versus's case it looks better than the main game IMO.

There can't be two main series games in FF. In fact, they said they're making six FF XIII games (FF XIII the main one, 5 spin-offs). Are you telling me they're main series too? O_o So say one comes to the Wii (Haeresis XIII is rumored for the Wii) then the Wii just got a main series title? And what if that happens with the DS? The PSP?




The head of SE himself said exclusives are no longer in there vision. This means I expect everything that is not nailed down over there, to come out on both consoles.



Versus looks better anyway but I doubt FFXIII will drive xbox360 owners crazy. 360 has a lot of RPG and none of them has sold that well even Lost Odyssey with it's huge marketing campaign and that is made by the creator of Final Fantasy himself didn't even sell 1 million.

I think you have got the poison pill thing wrong by saying the other Exclusives wont come on the 360. FFXIII i believe is just testing the waters. But what i do agree with from another member said is SONY and SE doing something behind the backs of MS.

It all seems very coincidental and too easy. Regardless of what Sony say, I'm pretty sure they knew of the multi plat in time and i'm sure they have a big hand in making sure FFXIII exploits weaknesses on the 360. The game was built with only the PS3 in mind and made to utilise the Cell processing power (whatever this may be). For Sony this would be a win win situation since they will still have the game and be able to laugh at MS for falling into this trap. SE will win as they have kept Sony happy and made good money by having sales on both platforms. MS won't be happy as they would have been wrong over having the 1st laugh and their system will be made to look weak.

just as the story of FFXIII going to the 360 was a megaton, this will be way bigger.

MS better make sure that FFXIII lives up to the PS3 version. If it doesn't, they will face hard times and think twice about buying out another exclusive!

Last remnant however, is a different game entirely. Since SE are so fond of backstabbing, Microsoft should be worried what they have in mind. If their move was motivated by money, there would be less worries I believe...

As for the impact of FFXIII, I forgot which research paper it was, but it's considered to be in the top 10 franchies alongside Zelda, NFL, Need for Speed, GT, Halo and Mario. I think it would be a mistake to underestimate the impact FF XIII can have.

 

The FF franchise is 4th behind Mario, Pokemon and the Sims.



@Fei-Hung and others: FFXIII could be released at its full potential on XB360 too so to push RRoD vulnerable units beyond their thermal limits and brick them, for example.
