    Okay, so, I've lost myself in the rumor-mill lately, and obviously everything should be taken with a grain of salt. A guy I follow on twitter, tweeted an image from 4chan, that looked something that could be from the Sony Conference rehearsal, or whatever the Square Enix thing is next week. He then deleted the tweet, because he didn't want to spread rumors, whatever that means. And it's from 4chan so everything from there should be viewed with the most Skeptic eyes possible, I think:

    No Caption Provided

    Now, this could mean nothing. We knew Final Fantasy 14 would eventually make it to a Sony console, and maybe Versus XIII becoming Final Fantasy XV isn't that hard to believe. But, and this is a big but, I don't buy that Square is even ready to announce Kingdom Hearts 3. Would Disney even allow it to be exclusive since, I'm pretty sure, they co-publish it? This could just be a crappy photoshop thing. But then, there's this article: http://www.stfuandplay.com/story/content/final-fantasy-versus-and-kingdom-hearts-3-exclusive-to-ps41#.UbDOzkDqmSo

    And that's from the guys who leaked the stuff about Driveclub, so there's a bit of reliability there. I tried going through 4chan to find the image again, but, thanks to the Snake/Kiefer Sutherland thing, it must be buried back a few-pages.

    If there's a thread about this, or if it's in the wrong place, Mods: Do that thing you do.

    Square Enix has NO qualms about announcing games. They may not be anywhere near done, hell they might not have even started making them yet, but it wouldn't be surprising if they announced Final Fantasy 15 and Kingdom Hearts III next week. Remember that they announced 3 Final Fantasy 13 related products months before Final Fantasy 12 was even out. As for making them Sony exclusives, I'm not sure what to think about that. That would be a pretty huge get, even with the state of modern Square.

    I fully expect them to announce a new Kingdom Hearts game for the Vita, just to piss off all non-Japanese fans. No way are they making one for the PS4.

    I think that logo was confirmed as fake awhile ago, but I could still see that game happening.

    Yeah that KH3 Logo was confirmed being fake a few months ago but if there was Final Fantasy XV (renamed Versus if the rumors are correct), and Kingdom Hearts 3 I would be very happy...hell im even a bit interested in A Real Reborn. That firs Final Fantasy Versus 13 trailer is still cool.

    I loved the core Kingdom Hearts games, but the spinoffs were all duds. If they could get their shit together for 3, it's an insta-buy for me.

    FF versus XIII being turned into 15 only makes sense at this point and wouldn't surprise me at all. A new Kingdom Hearts would be pretty great. I 've been waiting for a full console sequel, so hopefully that's what it is.

    SE always come out for Sony pressers. Just like COD usually comes out for MS.. Doesn't have to indicate any exclusivity.

    Doubt that Kingdom Hearts III logo is real. The I's in the logo are the same design and color as the logo for Kingdom Hearts II.

    @bisonhero: Oh god, that could totally happen. No one ever mention this again. Can't give square any more bad ideas.

    If the Image is fake, I guess the only thing real-ish is the article? The whole leaking of Driveclub thing kind of gives it some legitimacy, in my mind. But, who even says that Square Enix has to announce anything next week? They should. But, they have Kingdom Hearts HD coming out this year, and there's TGS in september, so really, they don't need to do anything. But, they did say there future of Final Fantasy will be revealed next week. Damn E3 mysteries.

    They really should release Final Fantasy Versus XIII before announcing anything else new.

    This is fake as fuck but one of those games most certainly exists because Nomura has to be working on something, and I'm sure they wouldn't want to get rid of the years and years they've spent on Versus 13, so my money is on that being finally released. Forget KH3 though.

    I'd love a Kingdom Hearts game that wasn't shitty like the sequels and spin-offs. Like, maybe one that wasn't directed by Nomura.

    I agree with you on every count except for KH3D. That was where the combat became more than mashing and smashing and healing near death. A lot more strategery and the peripheral mechanics (dropping, pets) were awesome.

    As much as I fucking hate how many spin offs and side stories there have been for kingdom hearts I really hope it's not KHIII.

    Well, they introduced XIIIVersus seven years ago and that still hasn't shown up in any form, so why not announce some new KH? They don't really have any credibility left to blow at this point. S-E's output in the last decade or so has really been a fucking disaster, on a related note.

    In the real world though, this is probably a shopped up fake. Looks cool though. Got me at about quarter-mast thinking about it.

    Eh, not sure what to think about Square nowadays. They didn't have a real good record this generation.

    I played the demo of KH3D and couldn't tell what was going on. I would just lock on and mash buttons, like in every other KH game, but at least in the others I could usually tell what was going on. Here, the camera and Sora just zoomed around.

    @believer258: I felt the same way when I played the demo, too. It seemed like the FlowMotion attacks just bloated everything up and added confusing particle effects, but once you get a good handle on how everything works together, it's fantastic. It's really great to freeze a group of enemies, and then swing off of a pole to get away from them, and then activate a sliding dash to close up the distance and deal serious damage and finish out with a poison-inducing AoE attack. The demo doesn't do a great job of showing you the combat possiblities (and neither does the main game, really), but by building off of Birth By Sleep's combat system and encouraging the use of magic and special attacks, there's a lot more to do. It's no longer just swinging around a keyblade until a QTE pops up.

    While it would make sense, I am surprised to hear that there is an "official" rumour about Versus XIII becoming XV. Wasn't there a fake video last year showing Versus being re-labeled as XV, mostly based on someone at Square Enix stating that FF XV might be an ARPG instead of a classic FF?

    The rumor is that Sony is helping Square with assets and other stuff and that is why it is becoming exclusive to PS4. Either that or Versus is still for PS3 and FFXV for PS4 which would be k with me as well.

    Nomura hinted at Versus for E3 XD

    http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=581183

    Nomura says something like this

    " when this radio airs there will be E3 going on at US. I will be at E3 for KH1.5 promotion. And there is a certain information announced at E3 which I cannot talk about at this moment. But I feel like everyone knows what this information will be anyway."

    So yeah Verus basically confirmed XD

    I wouldn't be totally convinced of Versus or KH3 yet. Apparently, the end of KH1.5 hints at KH2.5 in the credits by showing which games will be included, which hasn't been officially announced yet. It's possible it could be that. However, it would be pretty rad if it was Versus/KH3. Finally.

    If this turns out to be true and KH3 is a PS4 exclusive thats my decision made on first console.
