No, it may not happen, but just go with me on this:

As you all know, the mysterious countdown is almost over, and it won't be long before we see the "new vision" that Square-Enix is hyping. Even though I wouldn't be surprised to see yet another Nintendo-based announcement, or a relatively useless iPhone title or something, I'm thinking PS3 owners might be surprised with the unveiling. For quite a while now, owners of Sony's next-gen console have complained bitterly of Square-Enix's lack of support, and although they don't typically bend to fan pressure, we have to assume the constant negativity has had some impact on the publisher. Furthermore, they're kicking off 2009 with the Blu-Ray release of "Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children," and let's not forget about the very special PS3 bundle that goes along with it. Yes, it'll only be available in Japan, but it's rare to see S-E pay this kind of attention to Sony these days. On top of which, Blu-Ray could be the perfect vehicle for a publisher like Square-Enix; they tend to focus on heavy CGI, and it's far easier to jam all that information on the BD format than separate it out onto multiple DVDs.

This may be the reason why Final Fantasy Versus XIII remains a PS3 exclusive while FFXIII is headed to the Xbox 360. Now, we also know that despite all the great PS3 exclusives coming up, several are still unannounced. We assume that one of them is Team ICO's project, but what if Square-Enix is preparing something special for the PS3? You know, FFXIII for the PS3 is almost done; they have time to do something else with Sony's machine while they work on the 360 version of the game, so maybe they will do something special for the PS3 that's FFXIII-related. Who knows? But it's a fact that PS3 owners are long overdue for some good old-fashioned S-E respect, and we'd love to see it come with this "new vision."

Now you watch. The countdown will reveal a FFXIII comic book, or something.

Im not holding my breath for anything good from them. But I do look forward to April when my import copy of Advent Children complete arrives. I will be tearing up that FF13 demo hardcore.

i appreciate your optimism, especially punctuated with abject cynicism.

I feel the same way. It'll prob be something useless.

I have a strong feeling that it has to do with them trying to become more involved in western gaming, and as they have been showing so far I think they think the way is to move more towards 360s audience

The only way SE could redeem all their mistakes would be for a FFVII remake exclusively for ps3. Sorry, Im dreaming again.

It won't be a shock. If anything, another bummer. At least it won't be a dud as crap as their private party held last year with their so called "shocking announcement".

ps92117

no the site is also for 360 audiance, meaning the news will be for both. However big it is it will not be intended to redeem them selfs with us. Plus I am somewhat scared, because what if they bring another classics playstation game to 360, any news from them recently is bad news for us ps3 fans, I expect the trend to continue.

if i may ask whats the quality going to be like between the ps3 and the 360 versions of ff13? im sorry but i cant imagine even the video cgi looking as good on a standard dvd.

no most likely it just going to downgrade resolution to native 480p vs a 720p or 1080p or i for ps3

You all do realize that the DVD-ROM is just a storage medium and can easily hold video in 1080p (just not as much of it), right?

i wouldnt be surprised that final fantasy 7 is coming. imagine they didnt tell microsoft and just said 'sure, we'll do a multiplat deal with ff13 but you dont get versus' so ms naturally go 'sure we'll get leet loads of money'.

then we find out ff7 is being remade ps3 only. can u imagine the sales? it will dominate ff13 in fact all past final fantasies no doubt.

FF 13 is now ps3 exclusive due to (Insert Microsoft CEO) assulting Yuhu Makanawa!!!!

I wouldn't know how to act.

Or FF7 remake, I dont even care wat system. Or watch it be a FF13-xbox with all the nice lil Square Enix decals.

Honestly i thing square soft should split and work for sony.

I'm tired getting my hopes up.
In fact I'm looking forward to Demon Soul more then FFXIII.
Hype doesn't last forever which is why Grand Turismo should come out by Q1 of 2010.

why are you hyping this man. you know SE is not gonna do sh** to PS3 anymore, last time i checked the games came out on 360 first or exclusively, we're getting NOTHING from them. i doubt this is anywhere near a ps3 exclusive, hell to even limit it to multi-platform.

I guess you guys have been wondering long enough. I know what the "New Vision" is that Square Enix is going to announce. It is the exact same footage that we have seen for the last couple of years…..only shot from 5 degrees to the left.

The countdown is just for the launching of a new website which will probably come with a new trailer or something like that. I wouldn't expect much more than that.

Why would it be about an FF7 on an FF13 Webiste, thats so illogical, if it were ff7 it wouldnt be on a ff13. end of. i'm just expecting gameplay and release date.
