Plus when you look at what we've heard about a game like GTA V. Versus doesn't seem that special anymore, and then playing Skyrim or games like it Versus got to bring out all the stops. Cause if it doesn't it's doomed to the same treatment as Duke Nukem Forever.
But yeah, they originally went with a miniature overworld, but they felt it didn't fit the more realistic, darker nature of the game. So they started making it a proportionate open world.
Well, it won't play like XII in that respect. I actually liked XII's system. Hard to say if the overall story/characters will deliver, just gotta wait and see I guess.
The open world concept is pretty sweet, but I don't think this game will go down like Duke Nukem. For starters, the same company has been working on it for all these years, so that's at least something!
i think they have been moved to next generation platforms as wat has been released of this two games looks impressive and way above current gen specs
would be nice if they at least released some info on ffx hd. to me that was the last good final fantasy and the 1 I don't have coz I sold my ps2/games when I heard about the ffx remake :P
