Final Fantasy XIII Higher On A PS3 Owner's Priority List

When Final Fantasy XIII went multiplatform, the Sony fans were heard to yell, "but FF is associated with PlayStation! More PlayStation owners will want it!" Well, it's probably fair to say that just about everyone wants this game, but this sentiment does ring true to some extent.

In a recent set of data provided by research group OTX and presented by Gamasutra, we learn about the top 20 most anticipated titles for both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 owners (click link at bottom for the 360 stats). As you can see, #1 on the PS3 owner's list is FFXIII, while it's only at #4 on the 360 owners' list, well behind the likes of Halo 3: ODST and Modern Warfare 2. A graph shows off the pre-order intent for each top 20 list, too, and it's interesting to note that only one IP is found on either assembly of most anticipated games: Sucker Punch's inFamous, a PS3 exclusive scheduled to drop in early June. Also, we should point out that God of War III is pretty darn close to FFXIII; here's the Top 20 most anticipated games for PS3 owners according to the OTX results:

  • 1. Final Fantasy XIII (Square Enix)
  • 2. God of War III (SCE Santa Monica)
  • 3. Madden NFL 10 (EA Tiburon)
  • 4. Assassin's Creed 2 (Ubisoft Montreal)
  • 5. Modern Warfare 2 (Infinity Ward, Activision)
  • 6. Tekken 6 (Namco Bandai)
  • 7. X-Men Origins: Wolverine (Raven Software, Activision)
  • 8. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (Naughty Dog, Sony)
  • 9. Need for Speed: Shift (Slightly Mad Studios, EA)
  • 10. Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time (Insomniac Games, Sony)
  • 11. BioShock 2 (2K Marin, 2K Australia)
  • 12. Batman: Arkham Asylum (Rocksteady Studios, Eidos/Warner Bros.)
  • 13. Fight Night Round 4 (EA Canada)
  • 14. NCAA Football 10 (EA Tiburon)
  • 15. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 (EA Tiburon)
  • 16. Ghostbusters: The Video Game (Terminal Reality, Atari)
  • 17. Infamous (Sucker Punch Productions, Sony)
  • 18. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2: Fusion (Vicarious Visions, Activision)
  • 19. Half-Life 2: Episode Three (Valve Software)
  • 20. UFC 2009 Undisputed (Yuke's Media Creations, THQ)

The fact that X-Men Origins: Wolverine is higher than Uncharted 2: Among Thieves makes us wonder who took this poll, and we figure one glaring omission may be Quantic Dream's Heavy Rain, but that has fallen out of the limelight since its impressive unveiling last year. Hopefully, we'll see more at E3.

Another glaring omission is GT5... But this is amongst already owners of the ps3. Perhaps all the GT5 fans are gonna move consoles when it comes out (duh).

Highly questionable, indeed.

I just think there's too much mystery surrounding GT5 right now.

As soon as it's officially announced with an estimated release date, it WILL rocket up the "most anticipated" chart. Trust me on that. ;)

Do you think Prologue may have backfired on them? Think a lot of people are just like, "well, it's good enough." ?

I'd argue that FFXIII is surrounded by more mystery.
You'd have to say that GT5 Prologue is a better representation of the final game than what the FFXIII demo is.

Madden NFL 10 at #3? Are there that many people anticipating something that comes out EVERY year? lol

It's also strange that Assassain's Creed 2 is considered more anticipated than inFamous, when there's absoulutely no gameplay footage from that game while inFamous is being hyped big time. Don't get me wrong, I am indeed looking forward to some yummy stealth kills down the road, but we have almost no info on the game besides a time period and a artist impression of the new character. Too little and too far past the horizon it seems.

Nice to see Tekken up there though. ;)

It's Episode 3, the latest and possibly the final chapter. Hopefully it gets the treatment it deserves when the PS3 version hits, Orange Box was fun but glitchy, cept for Portal, that was nearly flawless.

IDK, the list looks right to me. Beats me why all the haters are so vocal, but AC was amazing and part 2 will even better. I'm highly anticipating WKC but, in a top 20 kinda way, it's just not as popular as those crazy movie rip off games that kids seem to gobble up.

I really wish the person who wrote the article above and alot of the folks who posted in this thread would grow the hell up and stop WORRYING about the 360 and the Wii.If you own a PS3 and not the other two consoles then FORGET ABOUT THEM and enjoy what you've got and be happy with it.By constantly comparing the PS3 to the 360 and feeling the constant need to give inumerable reasons why the PS3 is soooo much better than the 360(and the Wii), these people make themselves sound jealous and really make the PS3 look insuficient compared to the other two systems.

Who cares about the 360 version of the new Final Fantasy if you own a PS3.You ought to be concerned about the welfare of the PS3 version and that version only.Why are so many of you worried about the 360 version.Are you really worried about it being that much better than the PS3 version?! So many of you obsess over it so much, it sure sounds like you are!

I'm just hoping that square doesn't follow in bethesda's footschteps of releasing downloadable content only to pc/xbox users. They could extend the replayability of ff 13 / ffv 13 by releasing some content occasionally to spice things up.

Would also be nice to have a ps3 version of FF11, since some of us do have that travesty of a ps2 incompatible version, called the 40 gig unit.

Xbox 360 vomit. it's kinda like a wife being beaten half to death by her husband and getting up and saying "oh I still love you" thats the best way to explain what square-heads have done to us PS3 users."screw you loyal Square-head fans", "you only get one game from us and a snazzy looking PS3(only if you live in asia)" "and we'll just money grub from Microsoft" FINAL FANTASY XIII is NOT nor will it EVER be on my to get(hell even my to play) list!! mine are 1.GOW3, 2.CODMW2, 3.Ghostbusters and 4.NHL '10 and 5 WKC

Thats a fair enough argument I thought until I seen ghostbusters as your no.3 then I had to laugh and not take you seriously, it will be an interesting game but nothing more i'd say. Even if square-enix are doing us over I think theyty will still deliver a hell of a game so I dont really care.
