Kotaku opened a can of worms with this crap. ( ̄~ ̄)

Oh and found this too: Final Fantasy Versus XIII Cancelled? Not so fast.

I just realized it's been 6 years since they first announced Versus XIII. Whatever happened to Type-0? Are we getting that game?

Final Fantasy Type-0 Team already working on Western version

That's from November of last year. Since then the game has gotten a novel and manga adaptation along with an artbook that actually looked pretty good.

I don't think S-E has any plans to release Type-0 on the PSP in the west.  I suspect we're either going to see a Vita or PS3 port eventually, which is why they're being so quiet about it.

My GameStop doesn't even have a proper PSP section anymore, dunno if they take in pre-orders or have games in drawers or what. It's amazing how dire the situation is, it's like a more frustrating variation of the Saturn since unlike the Saturn the PSP actually DID sell more than, what, two million units outside of japan?

Reports of Versus's death are greatly exaggerated.

Well, that's what they should have said...

Good. Now let's wait some more for the anniversary event and TGS I guess.

« In addition to denying the rumor, Wada said that he'd just taken part in a periodic meeting for the game. He remarked that the quality of the cityscape demonstrated during the presentation could make you lose your footing. »

HD towns... that is all.

Versus to be released in installments

"Nomura explains that Square-Enix are aware of the frustration of fans with regards to the length of Versus' development time. He also says that, after experimenting with DLC in Final Fantasy XIII-2, SE are keen to make regular use of downloadable content and are looking at releasing the last two thirds of Versus as download-only. He does not mention how much these will cost."

This is old news, but I randomly found this recently.

Unless we're getting EXPANSION PACKS that'd really fucking suck.

Wow... that sucks. I really dislike when games are distributed like that. When I buy a game, I want to by the WHOLE game, and I don't mind paying a bit more or waiting a bit longer for it.

The scariest implication though is that they might not even be done with half of the game yet =/

It's probably a way to ensure they break even and get more money to cover the fucking 8 years it's been in production. :P

It sounds like they're thinking trilogy again and if they're thinking trilogy so they can pad extra pretentious bullshit into it to increase the length of the game installments, fuck that.  I'll buy it used simply out of spite if at all.
