Square-Enix Exploring Possibility Of Downloadable FFXIII Demo
We know we won't get that one-hour Final Fantasy XIII demo when the Blu-Ray edition of "Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children" releases here in North America. But many fans have been holding out hope for some kind of demo, possibly on the PSN and XBLM.
Well, the good news is that this is a possibility Square-Enix will examine. According to VideoGamer, producer Yoshinori Kitase says they have no plans to release a Blu-Ray demo of FFXIII in the West, but that's not the end of the discussion. Because they're working on a Xbox 360 version of the game for this region, Kitase doesn't want to release something only available to PS3 owners, so the Blu-Ray demo is out of the question. But...
"The type of demo version we released in Japan, we currently have no plan of doing that abroad, partly because we are going to carry on with the project alongside the Xbox version, so we really can't just make it available only for the PS3. But we hear that the demo version normally means something that you can download in the West, so that is a possibility we would like to check."
Yes. Please do "check." We promise you will find that about a zillion people want a downloadable demo, and we really don't care if you produce it for both the PS3 and 360. Heck, you probably should. Just give us something, 'cuz we're a little tired of just watching videos, as cool as they might be. Yeah, the game is a ways off for us but that's all the more reason to whet our appetites before we all go crazy!
