Another Versus (or FFXV) rumor: It's heading to PS4 and Sony is helping SE with the game's assets.
^ Yeah, heard about it today. It's Versus alright.
The trailer for FFX | FFX-2 HD has been leaked ahead of schedule:
It's for both though the Vita ones will be split due to the lack of space.
FF-X HD and FF X-2 HD might have been the first good idea of Square Enix in years...
Too bad they continue with stuff like FF XIII-3. =/
Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn will get a Collector's Edition

Someone discovered a hidden side quest in FFIX and posted the clip on how to trigger it:
It was in the guide. I don't know how it can generate a buzz now. I remember doing it more than 10 years ago.
Eh, I guess no one really paid attention.
Anyway, Famitsu has revealed the status of announced FF games:
I love how they didn't include Versus >.>Quote:

Snow will be back for FFXIII: Lightning Returns
Versus would probably be present at Sony's conference given the whole 'exclusive' factor Sony hinted at.
I just hope they won't give us a FF13-Versus transformed into FF15. I would be (again) disappointed.
I hope for a "back to basis" FF15 (medieval, heroic fantasy, world map, ...)
I definitely believe it would get renamed. It's a bit inevitable at this point. Plus, I don't think there is any need to worry, as FF Versus was supposed to have NPCs, towns, airships and all things traditional for a JRPG. It's just Lightening who's perpetually riding the ruined-wagon.
And it's awful for a final fantasy. The main character looks like EMO-Sasuke. The design isn't as impressive as in the past. It's not medieval, not that futuristic either, seems to be set in the present of an alternate universe and I don't like it. Real time - One character gameplay, no "final fantasy" music, ... I didn't even see any rpg elements in the trailer ...
It's simply the first final fantasy trailer that is not giving me goosebumps. It might be a good game but that's not enough. Final fantasy was more than a game, FF4,6,7,8,9 & even 10 or 12 had a soul & it's gone. This is an empty shell ... as shiny as that shell may be.
To be honest here, I've never been a huge fan of versus or the general direction Square-Enix has taken with the Final Fantasy Series in term of gameplay or story over the last few years. As far as I'm concerned Final Fantasy XIII was terrible. And while I'm not thrilled the next final Fantasy is going to be more of an action game than an RPG. Square need to get this game finished and released so they can move on, hopefully back to the older school mechanics and more artistic presentation that made Ni No Kuni better than any Final Fantasy game in the last 10 years.
What I saw from Final Fantasy XV in that trailer made me think the game itself might have a chance of not being terrible (which would be a big step). Yeah, it's looks like an action game. Yeah, it looks overly stylized. But what I saw in the trailer suggested to me that this time there might be a story this time and I'll forgive a lot if XV has a decent story to it.
The part that most stood out to me where the young protagonist and his father are eating that terrible soup and pretending to like it to keep the cook out of trouble. That's the kind of character development that Final Fantasy XIII utterly failed at.
