    As long as they resolve the XIII-2 ending, I can wait.

    Oh and Kingdom Hearts 3 doesn't suck like the second.

    Yes it sucked. Kingdom Hearts 2 brought in Organization 13 which is like some fangirl's wet dream, when they should have just kept using Disney villains in a prominent role instead. The game was stupidly easy, even the 'bonus boss' fight was a major downgrade from the previous bonus bosses (Phantom is just awful) and fights seemed to devolve into mash triangle ALL DAY LONG. Soundtrack was decent but that was it's only redeeming point. The first KH is still the best one.

    KH2 is 10 years old. Birth by Sleep and Dream Drop Distance are leaps and bounds better. Look at those for what KH will be like in the future.

    BbS is the best KH yet. I'm sure 3D will be better than that.

    We're talking about Kingdom Hearts now, we can debate FF another time.

    I gave Birth by Sleep a try...the battle system was okay...shame the story seems to run on the stupidity of Terra (Yes I know you Skilletor don't care about the story but guess what, others do). If it wasn't for that, I probably might have liked it more. I can't say anything about DDD until it comes out later this summer...and if it does redeem a certain blue haired hero, then I will LOVE it.

    KH has a shitty story even by game standards.

    Gameplay is more important than everything in a game, and BbS is the best yet. There is nothing in KH1 that BbS does not do better, story included. You can't say Terra is stupid and then praise KH1, when he's pretty much just Riku (at that point in the story). There's more variety in BbS. Each of the characters is a distinctly different playstyle, the ability system is awesome, and you have all of the skills you had in KH1 and more.

    Edit: And regarding the 13-2 ending, the Lightning scenario comes out this month.

    I'm not going to debate the nitty gritty of the KH story, that way leads to madness...

    I'm just saying that I can and will tolerate mediocre gameplay if the story/characters are compelling. Yes it's still a videogame story and can't compare to a novel or such but this is just how it is for me. There probably was more variety in BBS but because some of the characters were such a turnoff, I didn't really feel like giving it more of a go. I'm sure after time I'll be willing to come back and give BBS a shot.

    The Lightning scenario to my knowledge won't resolve the ending, probably just tell us what she was up to during the game (Other than not telling Noel not kill Caius obviously)

    If anything, FFXIII deserved a prequel, not a sequel. I was much more interested in the lore back story pieces than pretty much anything else and that codec thing does not cut it.

    Anyone hear about this? Here's a copy and paste from another forum...if it's true then I'll be freaking MAD!!!!!!



    Please note that the below information is a rumor as of now. However, the information circulating the internet implies a high chance that it is, in fact, true. Read at your own risk.



    It has been six years since we first caught sight of the impressive Final Fantasy Versus XIII, and all we've had since that time are constant promises that say we'll get more info "soon." Now, according to Kotaku, it seems the anticipated title is no more.

    "Several sources" have apparently said the game was officially cancelled within the last few weeks. Sadly, it was a decision that has hit Square Enix staff pretty hard, as morale is now quite low. On top of which, we may never know the real truth of the matter, as it seems Square Enix doesn't want to make any sort of announcement. They'd rather just let it fade away over time, possibly because a confirmation could result in declining stock value.

    Earlier this year, there were rumors that Versus XIII had actually become Final Fantasy XV, thanks to a leaked video. But that was confirmed as fake, right? Still, it seems more possible than ever that whatever was Versus XIII has been - or is currently being - incorporated into the next installment in the primary franchise. That might not be a bad thing. Still, if true, this is just more disappointment to heap atop the already depressing pile of disappointments for Square Enix fans this generation.


    Here is some additional information from Kotaku:


    It's been six years since Square Enix first showed Final Fantasy Versus XIII's debut trailer. Six long years. One source tells Kotaku that Final Fantasy Versus XIII was officially cancelled within the last few weeks. The decision impacted morale at Square Enix and staff were reportedly saddened by the move.

    Square Enix, this source added, has also decided to let Final Fantasy Versus XIII die quietly on the vine and fade away, instead of officially announcing its cancellation. This would likely be due to the fact a public acknowledgement of a Versus' cancellation could impact things like Square Enix's stock prices.

    Final Fantasy Versus XIII has been M.I.A. for the past few months, save for the occasional, brief mention. Earlier this spring, Final Fantasy Versus XIII designer Tetsuya Nomura spoke with Japanese game mag Famitsu about the title, which has only ever been seen in trailer and screenshot form.

    "We're almost done with preparing the latest info for the game," Nomura told Famitsu. "Because of a totally unrelated reason, there are circumstances in which that info cannot be released."

    Then in May, Nomura once again commented on the game, saying to Game Informer, "We would like to ask for your patience on an official announcement for this title. It always takes time when tackling the challenge of doing something completely new, but we are doing our best to bring information to the fans as quickly as we can. Your patience is greatly appreciated."

    Then E3 came and went with no sign of Versus, which wasn't that strange if you remember the game was not at last year's Tokyo Game Show either.

    Whatever happened to the game over those six years—whether it underwent radical changes or simply couldn't come together—it seems Square Enix has finally decided to cut its losses.

    Another source tells Kotaku that, a few months back, Final Fantasy Versus XIII's development and resources had actually been folded into another game, which is to be the next numeric Final Fantasy title, Final Fantasy XV. Whether this meant actual game assets and code or simply the movement of staff was unclear. This information was independently corroborated by yet another source, though it's important to note both had learned of the "folding" prior to the more recent news of its outright cancellation.

    The Final Fantasy XIII branded types have not been set in stone: another spinoff title Final Fantasy Agito XIII had its name changed to Final Fantasy Type-0. So what was originally planned as an entire mini-franchise by Square, with multiple titles spanning various platforms, looks now to be focused on the adventures of Lightning.

    Whether it's been cancelled entirely or had resources absorbed into a newer, larger project, the game we once knew as Final Fantasy Versus XIII would seem to be no more. Even if Final Fantasy Versus XIII has been cancelled, I'm inclined to believe that whatever Versus was, or whatever had been created for the game, will turn up in some form in Final Fantasy XV. Surely, Square Enix would not cancel a game and completely dump all the work it's done? Right?

    "We have no information on the status of Final Fantasy Versus XIII."

    When Kotaku contacted Square Enix about whether or not Final Fantasy Versus XIII was still in development, the game maker released the following statement: "We have no information on the status of Final Fantasy Versus XIII, but will be sure to update you as it becomes available." Keep in mind, I wasn't asking for an update per se, I simply asked if Square Enix was still making a game it had already announced six years ago. Square Enix did not reply to Kotaku's requests for clarification regarding whether Versus was still in development or not.

    Square Enix has a Final Fantasy event coming up in Tokyo in late August and September. One of the stage events is centered on the Final Fantasy XIII Project and the Lightning saga (so a Final Fantasy XIII-3 reveal?). None of the announced stage events center around Final Fantasy Versus XIII, something that Japanese gamers were quick to point out on game sites and blogs.

    So, is Final Fantasy Versus XIII finally and officially dead? Without confirmation from Square Enix, we can't say for sure. While these reports certainly indicate the long-awaited game has been cancelled, Square's reluctance to acknowledge them means those desperately wanting to see more of the project still have a glimmer of hope to hold onto.

    But if the game fails to make an appearance at either the upcoming Final Fantasy celebrations or the 2012 Tokyo Game Show? Then yeah, given what we've heard (particularly of Square's reported desire to kill the game quietly), you'd be a lot safer assuming Versus XIII is kaput and start looking forward to the next big FF game.

    I think they realized how bad they've been messing up and shipped that dev team off to an island until it reaches their image of perfection. The game will be out in the year, 2079.
