Square-Enix Event: Additional Details

I keep getting conflicting reports on whether or not the news is over and done with from Japan - Arnold says it's over - but if it is, we're sorry to inform you that there has been nothing related to Final Fantasy VII besides the unveiling of "Advent Children Complete." So let's just wrap things up with a few other tidbits from Square-Enix's private party this weekend.

First of all, the biggest news centered on the Final Fantasy XIII demo that will be included with "Advent Children Complete." Furthermore, considering it's Blu-Ray, we have to assume for now that the playable demo is exclusive to the PlayStation 3, although we're relatively certain that Square-Enix will make it available to Xbox 360 owners in some other way (possibly via the Marketplace). But in addition, it seems FFXIII will be playable at the Tokyo Game Show next month, which factors in nicely to the prediction that the full game will arrive in late 2009. Now, moving on to another rumor, we've heard that Kingdom Hearts III is in "pre-development" and will get unveiled some time soon...and GoOnl!ne says that KHIII may still show up at the second day of the Square-Enix party, which is ready to kick off as we speak.

If not, we'll probably see it at TGS. If they really don't plan to issue any more announcements, then this is where the news ends for Square-Enix's DKS3713 event. But they may have a few surprises left, so don't give up hope just yet...

KH3=one of the most (if not the most) anticipated sequels from me. I just hope its not coming in 09 cause i'll still be recovering from 08 and then need to prepare for ff13 and god of war 3. Oh god, why is there so many games. :).

Eh, clubbing was never my thing. Besides, this girl I know took me out to dinner already. :)

And hey, don't forget, I'm a gamer, too. I really want to know what Square-Enix has to say, and I just figure...you guys should know, too. It's what we do here at PSXE, as y'all are well aware. ;)

Your too generous, Ben. But i guess that's what it takes to write for the best ps site. You guys deserve a pat on your back, maybe even a cookie. :).
Also i just read your article on Left 4 Dead, that's where the cookie comes from, and afterwards read up on why people hate Gabe Newell. Guy is a total idiot, douche, jacka$$, lazy, fiend, and a complete elitist who says stuff like "sony needs to recall the ps3." This guy sucks.

I'm tired of hearing about making certain games exclusive. All I want is for developers to stop make the games identical! Devs know that they can do so much more with a blu-ray disc, so I'm just wondering why do they stop, when the games are identical! Devs need to go as far as they can like MGS 4 did. I will never forget that headline Ben had statin Kojima said they had to take some game elements out cause it wouldn't fit the blu-ray discs.

I'm not angry anymore about exclusives, just at the fact that I know the developers can make something so much better than what they have.

If this is all Square has to say as far as FF VII goes, I am really disappointed in them. Why get everyone hyped, only to let them down. Nothing even remotely interesting on the FF VII side. But, at least KH 3 is coming (maybe) lets hope that it rocks our socks off!

If that was the "shock", then Square Enix have just lost alot of my respect for them. I don't see how this "swings the ball back to Sony"... Surely somethings missing...

Ben, the Square-Enix event is over. So I think you should take the day off and go clubbing :-P

Honestly...was ANYONE even suprised that there was nothing for PS3 fans to be excited for? I'm not even let down at this point.
