No Final Fantasy XIII Demo For E3
Rather than wondering what won't be at E3 this year, we're starting to think about what will be there. ...anything?
The latest rumor criss-crossing the Internet has caused a big stir among RPG fans and PlayStation 3 owners, and it revolved around Final Fantasy XIII. Several sources were reporting that Square-Enix would debut a new demo of the highly anticipated PS3 exclusive at E3 this year; a demo that would include plenty of new footage. But WhatIfGaming has said a Square-Enix North American PR representative has shot the rumor down with the following depressing confirmation:
"We have no plans whatsoever to introduce a playable demo or any demo at E3 on the FFXIII project."
Of course, it may have been a long shot in the first place, but we were just starting to hope that E3 would be used as a launching pad for big news. It always used to be this way, but this year is looking pretty thin. We'd also like to see some more progress in the FFXIII camp, just because the lack of any new details or information is somewhat worrisome. We'll continue to keep you updated, though.
