PS3 Video Blowout: VGA Premiers, Final Fantasy Drops Jaws
As most of our loyal readers know, we typically update our video section once a week, but this particular update is special for several reasons.
First of all, we have no less than 8 World Premier videos taken directly from their debut on SpikeTV's Video Game Awards. This includes first looks at the likes of God of War III, Brutal Legend, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and the recently announced Dante's Inferno. Although most of these are brief, many are quite promising and succeed in jacking our excitement level through the roof. Make sure you watch 'em all and when you're done, you need to move on to the two DKS3713 trailers for Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy Versus XIII.
Look, we've all had our issues with Square-Enix over the past few years, and PlayStation 3 owners are none too happy with their business practices thus far this generation. But we absolutely promise you that all will be forgiven once you drink in the aforementioned trailers. They are quite lengthy, and without any doubt, they're the most drop-dead gorgeous videos we've seen to date. This is why the wait for both titles will be well worth it, and we are now fully convinced that FFXIII will be the definitive role-playing experience of the generation. It will be to the PS3 what FFXII was to the PS2, and to be perfectly honest, we also believe it will not look quite as good on the Xbox 360. Remember, S-E has already said they won't even start work on the 360 version until the PS3 version is done and complete; they built the White Engine from the ground up with Sony's machine in mind. Hence, the 360 version will need about 4 or 5 DVDs and likely won't look as good as the one high-def Blu-Ray version on the PS3.
Just trust us on this one: you can't miss the Final Fantasy trailers in question. Versus looks downright amazing, too. All these videos mentioned here will make your day, we promise!
