The decision to bring Final Fantasy XIII to Xbox 360 was only made recently.
Work on the Xbox 360 version of the game would not begin until the PS3 version of the game was completed.
That both version of the game would require a period of localization.
It was later revealed to us in an intimate hour long interview with the developer (that will appear in the next issue of Official PlayStation Magazine Australia on sale August 13th) that the game would not be ported to “other formats” until the localization of the PS3 version was completed.

His main argument stems from this.

His reasoning is that he does not believe SE will just have the finished PS3 version sitting around while they port the XBox 360 version. The only way this does happen, is if Microsoft pays out tons of money for this to occur. (which is unconfirmed, but assumed)

 

 


As I said, his argument rests on nothing but speculation... The only definite claim about release dates we have is MS's, and SE hasn't contradicted it AFAIK.

 

 

maybe the plan is for a simultaneous release and that is what they hope to do. But until I find definitive proof that a contractual agreement was struck between the two sides guaranteeing the aforementioned, I'm going to hope that SE along the way decides to release the PS3 version first.

Not going to happen.

People don't go "on record" to say something will be having a similtaneous release unless that is whats going to happen - FOR CERTAIN.

Honestly wake up and try and use some brain cells, to you and all the rest in this thread who think there is the slightest chance that the PS3 version will come out first.

 

 (no offense intended, but seriously - we've been told directly whats going to happen, this thread is ridiculous!)

i hope I don't see "banned" next to your name the next time I check on vgchartz

He said early 2009 release ........ funny.

I guess in their dimension that's correct. E3 08' is in August in their Bizarro World too! Strange...

actually yeah they do,

there have been a few times where games went from simultaneous to not. There have also been times where games have gone from exclusive to multi-platform after being stated they weren't.

This is total bull. We have no gameplay from FF13 yet, so to say it'll come out early 2009 in Japan is optimistic at best. A year for translation of all the text and re-doing all the voiceover is not out of the question, and a port to the 360 -- which they said is easier than porting it to PS3, and the base code is being done on PC, which it's being released for as well -- is not going to take that much time. It may well be 2010 for 360, but it won't show up any earlier on PS3 in NA/PAL either.

I agree.

Regarding the porting.  FFXII took 7 months to realease in the US after it's Japanese release.  So if we assume they took the same approach as they're taking with XIII and didn't start localizing until after XII was released, we can assume it would take at least as long to localize... or longer; especially if they started localizing XII before the Japanese release.  I'm assuming they are confident that they can port the game to the 360 in the same time that it will take to localize the game.

By the time ff13 comes out the ps3 will have already passed the xbox360. The ps3 has a better first party lineup than M$ will ever have, and multi-plats are starting to look better on the ps3. The only other exclusive game M$ will be able to "steal" is GT5 and that games is getting delayed. The only reason it's still close between the 2 is because M$ stole Gta4 and DMC. With sequels to Heavenly sword, uncharted, lair,a jak , little big planet,  a yearly game release from insomniac, and new IP's for the ps3 the xbox360 is looking at a 3rd place finish at best. FF13 wont matter in late 2010 and i'm willing to wager that ps3 version will sell better than the 360 worldwide.

Because of this, if there was indeed any discrepancy between the PS3 and X360 versions in terms of time to launch, Microsoft would remedy it, to ensure they maintain competitiveness against the PS3 version.

 

 

It doesn't follow that MS can or will be able to delay the PS3 version.  You have correctly pointed out only that MS would WANT to do so.

 No sorry I have two PS3s and I don't buy a word of that. I'm tired of the delays and to hear that games like GT5 are not even in production yet only further stems this issue. I don't see myself buying another PS3 game until sometime next year either. Still prefer the 360s line-up that much more and considering I'm a multiplatform owner each of these companies have to compete for my dollars. Sounds like something out of PR job to be honest.



"FF13 wont matter in late 2010"

I'm willing to bet that the people saying this were the same people who a month ago were saying FF13 would save the PS3.



haha if its coming to PC, I'm going to get the PC version only. I'm pretty sure the PC will be the best version, the only down part is it will probably require a high system requirement to run it which I'm pretty sure my current PC can handle. At least I can run DM4 smoothly with max setting on my current PC ^^
