TGS Update Thread (Square and SONY) - 10-07-2008, 09:05 PM

Ok, so the show starts in a little less than 2 days, so I figured I'd make a thread and update as I see fit.

I'll ONLY be posting updates and information pertaining to SQUARE-ENIX and the SONY family.

So, once the game show begins check back regularly as I'll be editing this post much like I did with the Square Event back in August.

*I've heard rumors that PLAYSTATION HOME will finally be dated, let's hope so!!

1. It has leaked that SONY will release Ps3 bundles of the PS3 with LittleBIGPlanet and Gran Turismo Spec III (although the LBP one is old news, I figured I'd add it.)

Such a fanboy, lol.

There's apparently going to be 9 unannounced PS3 exclusive games unveiled at TGS.

See these threads for info:

New (pre TGS) Dissidia: Final Fantasy Interview - PS3Forums

- the project is a very long one, Nomura originally warmed to the idea several years ago, the original ideas for the game have been a long way in planning. To reveal it on the 20th anniversary seemed fitting :P
- the character roster was decided way back at the beginning, it was always gonna be one hero and one villain from FF I - X.
- the characters roles in their own games, and their roles in Dissidia aren't the same *obviously because Dissidia has it's own story* Though there are connections with the characters within this standalone story. And of course, their personality traits are the same as ever.
- they assure us that the as of yet, unrevealed V, VI, and VII characters will be at TGS
- It was a very hard task in combining the whole past of the Final Fantasy series into the game, they didn't want it to feel like 'hey, this isn't final fantasy' and because Dissidia is using characters fans already know and love, they have that worry too because it's not like another Final Fantasy development, where they can work with something completely new each time. The narrative progression was also tricky, as it had to involve all the characters fully. (give them each their own sub story within the game kinda)
- the game is very well rounded, because in the end, a majority vote was taken, in order to establish which ways would work better for the game
- FFVII and beyond is easy for them to be faithful to the characters in recreating them for Dissidia, but because pre VII, the sprites aren't easy to recreate, which is why they chose to use Yosihitaka Amano's artwork as a reference. (they're confident they will stay faithful to the memories of the fans)
- vaguely mentions the battle system, it's versatile, and very easy to use, 2 player etc
- aside from fighting, shopping for items, character customization is included too.
- fine tuning of the game, it's a tight schedule before the december release.
- The final demo version (previous to it's release) will be playable at TGS, with 6 characters to try out.
- He encourages all types of people to play the game, and it's perfect for short commutes and things (i.e a good portable game)
I'll post more if I find it.

I heard about the 9 PS3 titles, and I hear there's like 4 unannounced games for the PSP....

This should be a fairly interesting event...
