Square-Enix Reveals E3 Lineup

For the past few months, we've been wondering if we'd see Final Fantasy XIII at E3, and we kept getting conflicting reports from several sources. Some claimed Square-Enix most certainly had something to display while others said they'd be skipping E3 and unveiling more FFXIII goodness at their upcoming private party in August. Well, it appears to be the latter.

Square-Enix has revealed their E3 2008 lineup, and as you can see, there is no Final Fantasy XIII or Final Fantasy Versus XIII. Furthermore, although we knew The Last Remnant was a multiplatform title, we had hoped the new Star Ocean would be as well. Unfortunately for PlayStation 3 owners, Star Ocean: The Last Hope falls only under the Xbox 360 category. It also reminds us that Remnant will debut first on Microsoft's console and come later on the PS3. Here's the list:

  • The Last Remnant (Multi)
  • Song Summoner: The Unsung Heroes (iPod)
  • Chrono Trigger (DS)
  • Dragon Quest: Chapters of the Chosen (DS)
  • Final Fantasy IV (DS)
  • Star Ocean: First Departure (PSP)
  • Star Ocean: Second Evolution (PSP)
  • Infinite Undiscovery (Xbox 360)
  • Star Ocean: The Last Hope (Xbox 360)

It used to be that if you were a RPG fan, you absolutely had to own Sony's console in either of the last two generations. But so far in this generation, it seems more logical to have the 360, which has already seen the likes of Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey and which, obviously, will be getting some Square-Enix love. As for PS3 owners, guess we'll just have to wait for more info on FFXIII...hopefully not much longer.

Well Sony's own game studios know the PS3 architecture better than anyone,I think we'll end up seeing exclusives only from Sony's game studios.What game studios belong to microsoft? (3rd party dont count lol)there is a rumor that microsoft wanted to by Epic.Oh and this shows that Japanese are becoming more and more westernized,more about money then honor.Turning your back on the hand that fed ya all those years.FFXIII better be the Holy Grail of Square-enix,to lose so many titles to another platform is just sad.

FFXIII was the single and only real reason I bought a PS3 to begin with... Glad my perspective changed over the months.

The way I see it, SquareEnix has lost it's concern for it's user base... This shows most notably with Final Fantasy XI, and how they've handled it over the last year, year and a half. Plus the above list, all I see is DS, PSP, and 360... So in otherwords, portable systems, and 360. Glad SE cares about the fan base that not only saved the company 20 years ago, but has continued to be their flagship title for 20 years. Which has nothing to do with Nintendo or Sony... But the very title itself. *angry*

Yeah...I used to love Square...but ever since the Enix...not quite the same. I'm just glad I have a DS for Chrono Trigger...I was sorta hoping the PSP would've done the honor but well...the DS is the one and only non Sony console I have.

Square needs to get off there asses and come out with a remake or totally new Vagrant Story or Chrono game. Next to FFXIII and versus those are the only games that will bring my love for Squnix back. And maybe Kingdom Hearts 3.

I dont think square is running from its userbase.

Like myself, i have ps1, ps2. I dont have xbox. But now i have xbox 360, not ps3.
The reason i buy ps1 is for the rpg, same with ps2, and x360. I buy x360 for the RPG.

And im happy playing eternal sonata and lost odyssey on x360. And play some ace combat 6 :D

Many people in the world have xbox 360.

Thats why they decided to make games on x360. Square is a game company, their bussiness is making game.
They make game to get money.

And i wont be surprised if the rpg created on x360, will be released on ps3 too.

Star ocean now is x360 exclusive, but for japan market, im sure square will release the ps3 version.

Just like bandai namco with eternal sonata and tales of vesperia.
