Final Fantasy Agito XIII Now Only In Development For PSP?

Let's face it- most avid gamers completely ignore mobile phone titles. They certainly can't stand up to titles on other platforms that were designed to play games, and with all the choices available, something for your phone seems like a colossal waste of time.

Obviously, this is the primary reason why most handheld gamers weren't all that excited when Final Fantasy Agito XIII was announced for the PSP. Most held the viewpoint of, "who cares; if it's being made as a mobile title, how good could it be?" We would agree with that sentiment, but we've just learned something that should come as good news for PSP owners: according to Forever-Fantasy, Square-Enix confirmed at TGS 2008 that Agito is now exclusive to Sony's handheld. Furthermore, the press kit they handed out makes no mention of the mobile version, which leads one to believe they've halted development on that version entirely. Perhaps they realized their vision simply wouldn't work on a mobile platform...? That's what we're hoping for, because we'd suddenly be a lot more interested in this particular game. Given their history, we can't see Square-Enix toning their efforts down enough to fit on a mobile device, so this is making more sense to us.

We'll try to have more information for you over the next few months. But for now, let's just say you shouldn't dismiss Final Fantasy Agito XIII as a throwaway title any longer; PSP owners could be in for yet another role-playing treat.

That's pretty awesome, I look forward to owning all three version. PSP and PS3 wise, this is pretty cool.

Oh yea getting this game for sure. And I hope the graphics and gameplay are like either God of War: CoO or FF VII: Crisis Core. I bought Valhalla Knight yesterday and it was horrible. I honestly think 3D is very hard to make look really good on PSP, so far God of War is the only noticable game that achieved such thing. Crisis Core is right behind it.

I'd buy a new PSP with better graphic/memory/processor. I'm a graphic and gameplay freak honestly.

They said that they'd canceled development for the mobile a few months ago. When Agito was first announced for the PSP at the Square Conference, they said that they had canceled development for the cellphone because the technology wasn't good enough and they wanted to expand on it. I'm really looking forward to this game, and apparently it has a monster sized storyline.

Old news, but good news for PSP fans. You can bet your PS3 that the only reason it's coming to PSP is because there's no XboxMobile.

Leaked, link please.

I'm so happy its on the PSP, instead of a mobile phone, Phone games should either stay at the quality of Snake, Chess & Tetris or be BANNED, FFVII: Before Crisis would have been fantastic on the PSP & now we've all missed it :(

I totally agree. Phone games should be just limited to those games like PacMan, Tetris, Chess or Bowling type of game. It is a platform with no future and potential for video games, especially cool and long games with stories. Just think about it, who will play a 40-50 hours game on a phone by turning the phone vertical to horizontal and stick with it to play, that alone is aukward.

I've always looked down on handhelds but it seems lately that they have been picking up. If I had to choose I'd get a psp, but with all the cool little electronic gadgets that I carry around (Cell phone, Ipod) will I have room in my pockets!?
