Who is this host?

Posted by kumis
@PureRok: No, I don't think that is the point because every other media is also not mentioning this (i.e. Kotaku). Also I think Giant Bomb would have mentioned it, if they had noticed

" @mikeja: I don't know if disc swapping is such a bad thing. It would have been much quicker to just stick a new disk in Metal Gear Solid 4 when the chapter changes. That, on top of the fact that you have to reinstall the chapter every time you want to start that chapter. "
Yup I'll be certainly getting this on the Xbox 360 because I do NOT want to wait for installs each chapter. Disc swap in 10 secs vs 10mins wait each chapter 
 
Bluray = great for movies / terrible for games

Dude!? What planet are the Japanese from? This trailer is batshit crazy. None of it melds and is way too pretentious. Anyways, the game still looks badass. I'll be picking it up day one. I'm pretty sure I'm gonna go with the PS3 version. Square's been working with PS3 hardware the longest for this game and has probably figured out ways to harnass all that power. Don't like the controller, though. Too small. And, DLC is a concern. Possible achievements outfits for my avatar (did I just say that?). Damn it. Still can't decide. Who knows what platform I'll be buying it for. I'll have to wait till we're closer to the release date.

You don't know there will be installs for each chapter.

Why did they use such a short little man?  Why was the CEO guy so clearly reading?  Why did did the developers show absolutely no enthusiasm?  I'll be too busy playing playing western rpgs to get into some dramatic j-pop stuff sqaure.

@Vito_Raliffe: Yeah but dude... achievements. I know it's wrong, but it feel so right.

PS3 for me.  Right now, I'd say the hype level is about a 6/10.  Finally happy they've put a release date on it, but its hard to stay excited for so long.

" @Slippy: or equal thanks to several dvds :-) "

Except 360 rarely supports audio above DD 5.1. Most 360 games I own have video quality that is macroblocked to all hell, even if they aren't using the whole disc. And putting it on multiple DVDs does not instantly solve the problem either. For example, if there are many cutscenes in the first quarter of the game, they will have problems fitting all the other data on that disc.

this. Never got into the Final Fantasy series. It just looked like the same game with slightly updated looks and features in the turn-based combat. Some of you out may point out something different to me so go for it. This isn't my cup of tea.

Odds are I'll get the PS3 version for my birthday in early April, 'cause I've always had a weird semi-flirtation with the FF series: it's a series I'll play, but not necessarily buy at full price. We'll see in a few months.

Hype level at 9 and rising, PS3 fo sho, son.

I'm getting this game on the 360 simply because I get all my Multi-plats on 360. There's no difference, so I may as well add to my achievements. Whats up with all of you saying that it feels wrong to play it on a 360? HELLO, you DO realize that FF is not a Sony exclusive title? You realize that there is already another Final Fantasy title available on 360, and that the first 6 Final Fantasies came out on Nintendo systems? The only PS exclusive FF games were 9,10 and 12. These types of comments are made from the same superstitious nonsense that makes a fanboy. Not calling anyone a fanboy, BTW. Just sayin.

True the FF series hasn't always been a Sony series, but to me  FF I-VI are very different games from the playstation games in both tone and style. Also this I percieved this game as PS3 game since it was announced and the announcment of the 360 version didn't change that.

I concur
Posted by big_jon

looks dumb to me. But I hate FF so.
Posted by Parsnip

Still looks kind of a step back in every way from the awesomeness of FF12.

Also, "please look forward to a dramatic story focused on emotions of characters", so basically it's going to be totally emo and full of angst. Fucking fantastic.
 
At least the (score) soundtrack will be great, Masashi Hamauzu fucking kicks ass.

I'll wait for the reviews...

" Leona Lewis is a good singer and it would be the same J-Pop nonsense with or without her.  "

Um, but that "J-pop nonsense" was actually written for the game and the vocal melody of the song is used in the actual orchestral music in the game , like they did with the themesongs for 9 and 10 etc.
 
This generic factory produced R&B nonsense is not.

@Nexas: Your avatar made me remember that I read Kanji's English voice actor will be doing the voice for Snow in FF13.
Posted by Nictel

PERSONA!
 
Oh wait wrong JRPG, anyway every trailer should have a host from now on. It's like I'm being sold some new business model or some life changing book.

Posted by DanceDanceKennypants

That video was like an old Toyota manual brought to life.
 
I almost expected somebody to say, "When a pedestrian obstacles your passage, tootle him melodiously." 
 
I love it. Also, it was nice to see John Yamamoto being so delightfully off-the-cuff there. Good for him.
 
Peace.

Will anybody else buy this game for the 360? Or am I an idiot? Or both?

Posted by Light_Bahamut

I always find it oddly disturbing that the Japanese do not create heroic characters who look like them. They're always these strangely white yet not actually Caucasian people. 

Posted by Teoball

I watched that 7 minute trailer that's on PSN and I hope the japanese VO is in the PS3 version at least, cause the english voices sounds horrible.

"Dynamic characters and unparalleled storytelling"
 
Yeah, maybe unparalleled in its shitiness.

If you saw how the game looked on PS3 before they went multiplatform, you'll realize that SquareEnix actually dumbed down the PS3 version just so it would fit on the 360's limitations...
 
At least, that's what I heard.

LOL.  
 
Also, Aren't these screen shots are from the old build when the game's was still a PS3 exclusive? I remember seeing the new ones and it did not look as good.

Who cares about Europeans right, Giantbomb? :D

Wow, thanks Some Guy!

Posted by Demyx

i heart Leona Lewis. but hopefully its good.
 
Cna't wait for the game, Definitely Preordering it.

Posted by MysteriousBob

I thought this might be good but once I saw that smug American in a business suit, I vowed to avoid it like the plague. What sort of marketing is this?

Posted by gakon

That guy inputs commands too fast!  How am I supposed to freeze-frame the movie to look at the menus?
 
Also, I can't believe "Hope" is the name of a dude.  That's worse than "Snow".

This trailer is serious business

Posted by Webby

Im getting both 360 and PS3 version cause im crazy. In fact im thinking about buying the 250gb FFXIII Limited Edition PS3 Slim. 
I cant wait. :D
Edited by giyanks22

Can't wait...
 
BTW the CEO of Square Enix has the same last name as the Japanese Admiral from WWII...Yamamto.. I wonder if they are related.

Posted by vidiot

Holy crap! Some Guy is fucking awesome!
 
Who the hell is he? Who the hell knows! He has a suit and is literally surrounded by Final Fantasy!

I have no idea who Leona Lewis is.

I had never played a FF game and only had watched it in the side lines. I'll wait and see if how the game is before thinking about getting it.

  Should of been hosted by uncle Rico  
Posted by dillinger

If I have my PS3 by then, thats the version I'll get, otherwise 360 will do.

Posted by Dan_CiTi

It has Troy Baker and Laura Bailey as voice actors, its already a winner. Also, this video is pretty hilarious.

If you haven't heard of Leona Lewis, she had a hit called, "For a Moment Like This". I swear I hear that song all the time, it drives me nuts.
