    It look like it could be the best Final Fantasy in the last few years. Then again I said the same thing about 12 so what do I know.

    Im still not completely sold on it. I need to see more of the actual gameplay at the moment, I like the setting and the graphics are nice. I'l probably end up getting it anyways since im filthy rich (not really).

    It's hard to say after seeing just the trailer. But the game has the potential. And oh... it's FINAL FANTASY :> I like the main character. She looks like a girl but this time it can be excused... because she is a girl.

    I'm optimistic, though they haven't released enough info to get a good feel for what the game truly is.

    It's definitely one of my top anticipated games, and I hear FFXIII VS is supposed to be just as badass.

    Looks really good, but I'm trying to stay away from it as much as I can so that I don't get too excited for it and have to wait until 2010 or whenever it comes out.

    Well I always felt that when they first put out a FF game on a new console it's outstanding then the rest after are just ok.
    I personally haven't played any handhelds and i'm not hardcore in regards to ff so don't rage me...

    If my theory is correct it will win!

    PS1 = 7
    PS2 = X
    PS3/360 = 13

    ITS HARDCORE MATH YO

    The one thing I really want from this game is that they drop FFXII's battle system. I really didn't liek it. I would much rather see a battle system that is more akin to the older Final Fantasy's, but that's just me.

    Best FF in years?

    I cant base that on just a CGI,but hey Kitase made FF8 alone,so perhaps he can do it again...

    I just have one problem with Kitas,ff7,ff8 and ff10 while all are fantastic and amazing,none of them really focus on knights,castles,crystalls and the general medival mixed with machines style universe,nah its just waaaay more high tech,and futuristic and look at FF13 just neon everywhere...

    Ill buy it and play it on its name sake alone like most, but from what little info Ive read its not gonna be going back to pre 12 style but something new

    here it is taken from Gamespot

    The next question was for Kitase, who is returning to Final Fantasy development on FFXIII after not participating on Final Fantasy XII. He was asked to describe changes in the gameplay. He responded that Final Fantasy X had random encounters with a battle environment that would load and that Final Fantasy XII had enemies that were onscreen with seamless transitions to battle. In Final Fantasy XIII, a version of the active time battle system will return, and the team hopes to combine the best of FFX's and FFXII's systems. Kitase said that there will be monsters in the field but that the encounter system will be different from how Final Fantasy XII's turned out.

    It all depends on the battle system. The battle systems alwyas change in some regard in FF - be it character class/skill systems (jobs, fixed classes, materia, junctioning, etc) to the turn system (turn based, ATB, CTB, RTB, etc.) Ignoring XI for obvious reasons, XII provoked by far the biggest backlash against the battle system. Judging by the screen shots it is ATB with combos that change the timer by skills having an "ATB cost" - but without some actual details from Squenix, nobody really knows the ins and outs of it yet. To me that seems like another massive change, and Squenix doesn't have a good track record with their more significant changes (XII battle system, dropping the overworld from X, etc,) so who can say?

    It's nice to see another futuristic sci-fi fantasy hybrid world though. VII and VIII are my favourite FF worlds - not that I have anything against the steampunk fantasy hybrid worlds of the other FF games.

    I agree. FFXII's battle system is what threw me off of it. I just didn't like it. Everything else was looking cool, but I also felt like I had to grind a lot too. I hate that. I'm still going to finish it though.

    The battle system looks really great. I like the fact they are evolving what was done in Final Fantasy XII, and yet are bringing new ideas and innovations to the table. Apparently it is taking the best elements from the battle systems of X and XII and crossing them over, while bringing in new elements. Those were my two favorite 3D games in the series, and I believe they also had the best battle systems of any 3D Final Fantasy game as well. Therefore I think the battle system has the potential to be groundbreaking.

    I think that the release of Final Fantasy XIII on the 360 means that I no longer have to buy a PlayStation. I really like the mix of Action and RPG gameplay. Although I need to see more than a glimpse of character and hints of game play.

    They said that the combat system from Final Fantasy X will be in it (which was awesome) and that you'd be able to pick your fights just like Final Fantasy XII (which was awesome). I'm really excited. :) Not much has been revealed about the story, but it looks intriguing.

    i think both XIII and Versus XIII look very good, not much has been shown but its enough to interest me! ALOT.

    really want it to feel more like VII to X. 11 and 12 were not too great tbh.

    I had a problem with the Real time in FFXII at first, but then I got used to it, and it wasn't that bad.  I can't wait for this game, but at the same time, Versus also.

    Well we obviously dont really know much about the gameplay yet.

    But from what I've seen of the game so far, I'm really excited, much more than I ever was with FFXII. I love the character design of the 3 people we've seen so far, lightning, the dude in the white coat and the other girl with ponytails. I'm also very excited about the fact that the world this FF will take place in will apparently be the one with the most advanced technology of all the FF games ever ( love sci-fi ). I'm also glad to see that we will have proper summons in the game, and not those espers that kinda sucked imo.

    So yeah, super excited for this game, too bad it will probably be a 2010 or 2011 release here in europe <_<

    Looking forward to it, but after only seeing a pretty scant trailer and really no gameplay, its hard to say.  Been patient with this, and will have to be way more patient before it sees the light of day.

    I like the return to the high tech it seems to have. Where the setting is high tech, and summons seem to be digital based rather than magical based.

    I was never a big fan of Rpgs until Final Fantasy X, so im hoping it has a similar feel to that game. Either way it'll be picked up by me, i was really excited by the news it was coming to xbox 360 :D.

    I think it has the potential to be the most "final fantasy" of them games since the ninth opus. Nomura has said they included an overworld map, and IX was the last FF to feature one.

    hopefully if they get the right mix of combat from X and XII then it should be ace. I must admit i wasnt a fan of the combat in XII but it wasnt unplayable. The trailer looks amazing. cant wait to see more stuff

    So many people say that, oh we're just whining it will be great on both systems, no okay! Look if the company has been developing the game for the ps3 for this long and now they're going to start developing for the 360 and then come out with them at the same time then there's only one way that's going to happen. That way is that they are going to pour all their resources into making ff13 on the 360, which will of been in development for much shorter, equal to the ps3 version which in the end are resources that could of been used to make the ps3 version better. So overall this takes away from the ps3 version and even if they were scaling up for this development they're still not going to even be allowed to make it any better on the ps3 because microsoft is paying them off so much, it's just evil the way that square enix is willing to sell out the quality of their games.

    Interesting, but it's too early to jump to conclusions. All I can say is, from what I've seen, it looks promising. I'm more interested in the battle system than visuals, though.

    I loved FFXII's battle system and all the hunts you could do,I didn't like that there wasn't a set main character in it though. I can't wait for XIII.
