PR Announcement "Finished" For "Project X"

We have no idea what it is but of course, there has been plenty of speculation over the past month or so.

We've heard that Square-Enix intends to announce something big before E3; various sources have stated the publisher's supposedly clear intention, and some PR people have also let things slip via Twitter. The latest comes from Square-Enix's David Hoffman, who has been keeping us in the loop at this Twitter page; now, he has another update that says the press announcement they've been preparing is now complete:

"The PR announcement is finished for Project X. Can't wait to get it out and watch the media do a double take!"

We still don't have anything concrete, although we probably won't have to wait much longer before everything becomes very, very public. It's a title that will likely make a big splash at E3 but obviously, given this recent tip, we should know all about it before then. In fact, I'd dare to say that the announcement will show up in our inboxes some time this coming week...and if we don't actually do a "double take," we're gonna be annoyed. And if it's just another DS title, we'll be even more annoyed.

Seems stupid but after all this crap with MS paying for S-E RPGs and them basically not selling. Im hoping this project X has nothing to do with Xbox at all. Though then why call it project X? Oh well, Im not settings my expectations too high. After all Sony's already got E3 in the bag from where I sit.

I have a feeling it is Kingdom Hearts III considering that the letter "X" plays somewhat of a role in the series. I really don't to spoil anything so I won't elaborate.

I choose not to care until it's more than just PR acrobatics.

I'm still sore over their shameless use of FFVII for publicity.

O yea, and then they want to gauge interest in a FFVII remake and they are surprised by their results because those moronic executives over at Square can't realize that when you are forced to deny the same game being in development multiple times a year for years on end that generally means there is a lot of hype for that product.

Honestly I wish I could sit them all down in a room and make them realize how completely stupid they are.

And to top it all off I haven't even played FFVII (well all the way through) and I still realize how many people want it.

Square sucks... If they go bankrupt, can someone else pay some licensing fees and pick up the FF or KH series, because that might be a not so disguised pleasure?

Also could X just be a roman numeral than a letter?

little off-topic
ben or anybody else, i was looking at super smash brothers brawl the other day, and i was reminded of a sweet game idea popped into my head years ago.
would it be good if someone made a ps3 and xbox 360 version of super smash brothers? its not called smash brothers 4 copyright reasons though. and SOMEHOW microsoft and sony let a developer use their first party characters in it? characters like solid snake, sam fisher, nathan drake, elena fisher, chloe frazer, master chief, kratos, marcus pheonix, altair or ezio, sackboy, sev, captain price, nariko, niko bellic, john marston, the apprentice, the guy from fable, the main character of infamous, and anybody else noteworthy im forgetting. add on to the list if u want.
if they have so much fun with nintendo characters, imagine a game with THESE characters. that would be an absolute blast 4 EVERYONE 2 play, ps3 or 360

Well i would like it to be something exclusive for the PS3 but it probably won't be. I wouldn't be surprised if it is Final Fantasy Versus XIII for the 360.

@ World

Right. SE doesn't know the value of making something that is exclusive to one console anymore. If 360 was going to get a Final Fantasy, SE should have done with 360 what the did with Wii, leaving the motherships exclusive to Sony.

Some devs think they can make more selling multiplats when I think exclusives have a very unique value to them. As long as people know about them (advertising) exclusives will sell very well. This is because when something can only be bought, received, experienced, etc. in one place it automatically becomes more valuable, hence more people want it.

Square-enix ( and any other game developer for that matter), you takin' notes?

agree... multiplat is garbage. Though one game I can't do that with would be KH3.

I've been waiting since 2007 for the announcement. In fact I remember the damn speculation that it was going to be announced at TGS '07 which is part of one of the reasons that I became a member of this site.

...Ok after realizing that, it better be KH3. If not, well I have huge triceps and I'm not afraid to use them >:O

Well what could it be? HD remakes of all FF games? Possibly.

Multiplat status of FFXIV and Versus XIII? Probably.

The announcement that fans have taken Wada down like Mussolini and installed Hironobu Sakaguchi? Priceless.

No Square... Your age of ultra-super-mega-hype is over...
It's a mystery indeed but it'll just be another disappointment...
For ps3 users at least...

Get ready for KH3 and FFvsXIII, the 2 big "EXTREME EDGE" 360 exclusives...
(Shocking right??? But think of it this way... Assuming this is the real deal, ANY other announcement they make will be slightly better)

You know I read your post and it dawned on me that what you say is something we should all actually prepare for. I know most of us do alot of venting when it comes to how SE has treated PS3 owners this gen but my god, I'm coming full circle and realizing Square-Enix has really screwed us.

I know I continue to bring this up but it remains to be a perfect example. "The Last Remnant". Whether it was a good game or not that game was endlessly advertised as being for "Playstation 3" Only. Not only did it go the xbox 360 but PS3 never even got the damn game.

The simple fact is that SE is easily swayed by microsofts bribes. I will not, and I repeat WILL NOT be surprised if Kingdom Hearts 3, Valkyrie Profile 3 and Final Fantasy Versus 13 all go multiplat, timed exclusive or even exclusive to the 360.

Just depends on how dirty MS and SE want to get...

I said that as a worst case scenario but you speak the truth shadowscorpio... SE has done nothing but disappoint us this gen and i say we've been giving them a free ride for way too long...

There was a time when most of us bought a game just because it had the magical word "Squaresoft" on it but that's no longer the case... Now they really have to convince us to buy one of their games...

I really want Square to either cut off from Enix (for obvious reasons) or go bankrupt, not because i'm an evil person, but because when that happened 20+ years ago they created Final Fantasy...

I seriously wouldn't mind a few exclusives going for the 360 as long as they give some exclusives to us as well... And i don't care if they're going multiplat as long as the games are good...
That's all...
:/

apparently $E had a meeting recently with M$ about a upcoming announcement 50 bucks says this is it.
if not, i really hope its kingdom hearts 3, that is the only game $E could release to get me excited.
ive never been a big RPG fan but for some reason kingdom hearts really takes me back to the old days.
hopefully the days of KH only being on psp are finally over, i never really understood that.
cant wait till birth by sleeps out though.

I am hoping for a Kingdom Hearts 3 but I'm not holding my breath. I also wouldn't mind a sequel to Vagrant Story...I looooovved that game. What else does square have? Oh how about another Brave Fencer Musashi, or Threads of Fate? Those were both pretty stellar games.

Now I'm pretty sure its going to be something lame for the DS or the PSP and will probably just be an anthology of some of their old games because they can't come up with any newer better ideas -_-'
