man....I am still trying to process how this all happened.  I wonder if Microsoft is scrambling to fix this shit show right now. I'm asumming that they are either frantically working to revamp the console right now or....something..

Surely they cant be thinking that this lame duck is favored right now.  Its gonna tank hard unless they do something. Fast.

I think/hope they will try to revamp their PR spin at least. The last week has NOT been particularly stellar for them, but I don't think they will try revamping the hardware until they can actually see an influence on sales. For now I think they are just banking on the consumer being relatively poorly informed, or just not giving a fuck. They probably assume the mindshare of the Xbox branding in the US and the hassle associated with migrating to a new online eco-system (friends-lists etc) will be enough to pull them through.
I suspect there will be more speculative and optimistic, but incredibly vague statements about the family-sharing system etc to try to get some better press.

That Major Nelson interview is such a hideous display of arrogance and abominable fashion sense.

"Did you see titanfall?
enough said.
conversation over."

Confirmed Backwards compatibility? Really? I missed a few minutes when my computer overheated, but I thought all I missed was the beginning of the Destiny demo.

Kind of/sort of through gaikai streaming service launching in 2014.
not able to play ps3 discs if i gathered correctly.
so would probably have to rebuy titles.
correct me if I am wrong

@unsmashable_pumpkin: That didn't look like a new design to me.

It's certainly not a major difference, but her nose looks slightly different.

So the chick in the new trailer is Morrigan?
If so can't say I love the new design :/
Trailer was good, but too short. Was hoping for more concrete info, but it will come in time I guess. The game is still far off.

I can tell you that Type-0 still has fal'Cie, l'Cie, and the like, though their roles aren't exactly the same.  The general mythology (and, uh, crystals I guess...) was the only thing connecting the games from the start.

Do we know if the fal'cie/l'cie is incorporated into the plot of versus as well? I would assume so, but haven't really followed any details (not that there has been much concrete information released recently)
When I think about it, some of the story aspects towards the end of FFXII is actually quite reminiscent of the same kind of storyline.

A lot of the mythos of the Fabula nova crystallis universe did seem interesting. A shame it was never really realized in FFXIII; Type-0 might have been more successful. Part of me is still holding out hope we might see it in English, even an iOS-port would do.

That and the fact that Versus XIII was always a stupid name...

Just watch them rename it to FFXVersus or something equally dumb :/ Names have not been a strong suit of Squeenix lately.

They pretty much have to remove FFXIII from the name now. When they were running with the numbered FFXIII-2 naming pattern, I suppose using just a subtitle might differentiate it from the "Lightning saga", but it really doesn't make any sense to keep it now. Do the games even really share any significant mythos that would validate the use of the FFXIII "brand"?

Suikoden VI
Breath of Fire VI
Wild Arms VI

I want this so bad :(

My (not particularly wild) predictions:

1) PS4 does not technically require an online connection, but allows publishers to block used games if they so desire, meaning in the practice there is no difference in the Xbone and PS4 on this point.
2) The words "experience" and "content" are mentioned at an average rate of at least once per minute across the conferences.
3) Dragon age 3 is shown at Microsoft's conference. Looks good?
4) Square enix is still a joke. MOBILE and SOCIAL excitement! No new actual games (FFXV/Versus rebranding does not count)
