  • Final Fantasy is a “PlayStation franchise”

    Yes, it was a nintendo franchise. But would you rather have a 2d based final fantasy VII than a 3d one if final fantasy didn’t switch from one brand to another?

  • Final Fantasy is a “PlayStation franchise”

    Instead of looking at npd sales, why not look at worldwide sales? America is not the whole market. Its only part of it.

  • Final Fantasy is a “PlayStation franchise”
    To be honest, what the sony guy said about final fantasy being a playstation franchise is agreeable. Final fantasy is synonymous with playstation and has been with the brand much longer than it was with nintendo. Theres no reason for a numbered final fantasy to appear on another platform unless theres a good reason to. Like the reason they had with final fantasy VII. If the multiplatform decision was because of the larger xbox userbase, then why is it that the playstation 3 version outnumbers the xbox 360 version? This just proves my point about final fantasy + playstation and also proves that porting the game to the xbox 360 was nothing but a waste of time, money, and effort.

  1. Apparently the nunchuck will be optional…

  2. The possibility of a “nunchuck” makes this feel even more of a “me-too” move by Sony. Unless this takes a real cut out of Nintendo’s market share, I still think Sony and Microsoft’s efforts are shaping up to be a waste of time and resources.

    Yes we confirm in the article it’s optional – and won’t be needed for all games. We hypothesised this in the previous article, due to the replication of the X and O on the nunchuck – the Wand has them too. Dual wielding of the Wand is also a distinct possibility for PS3 motion control games, where the nunchuck won’t be needed at all (since it doesn’t have the bulb on top)

    Yeah its starting to look, more and more like the Wii-mote, the red/blue ball on the main controller doesn’t look too great, kinda makes it look like a sex toy, fulfilling the role of “It only does Everything” XD Anyways, depending on the games that are coming out for it, I might be picking it up, an guesses how much its going to cost? ( $80 maybe?)

  5. normaly all the electronic objects from sony look pretty nice…but i dont know, this wand or arc, meehhh

  6. @Moocows – Hopefully it’s less than $80. On top of the price of a PS Eye, that price wouldn’t entice me very much if I were on the fence about buying this.

  7. Moocows111111 March 9, 2010 @ 18:05

    Oh yeah the PS Eye that’s like $50 or something like that, I’ll only get it if there aree really really good software coming for the PS Arc

  8. It is going to be huge flop

  9. VofEscaflowne March 9, 2010 @ 18:38

    It’s gonna be crazy to think of all the bundles for this. So what, a bundle that comes with the PS Eye and the Arc. Then another one where the Arc is sold separately for people who already own a PS Eye. Then the inevitable bundle of a game + the Arc… but will there also be a bundle for the game + Arc + PS Eye? Crazy :p

  10. Doesn’t look too bad! I might actually get it if it works as cool and well as the one archery demo a year ago.

    BTW, why two PS buttons, so the controllers can be used sepparately?

  11. XxTYxCRAZYxX March 9, 2010 @ 20:06

    i can see me playin wit it NO HOMO. but i wont buy it sorry

  12. This is looking good. I can’t wait to try No More Heroes on the PS3. And Madworld 2 *crosses fingers*

  13. can somebody please tell sony that this design looks stupid and suggestive : / i really hope they change it but i doubt they will.

  14. I am not a believer of this being a huge success. We will see, it will all boil down to the software available for the wand fuctionality and if it is fun.

  15. Can we now say that sony copied the nunchuck from nintendo now?

  16. Maybe they copied maybe they didnt, it is true that its pretty similar to wii’s nunchucks but did they like had any other choice?

  17. sony couldnt make it to diffrent to the wii and still make it avalible for all games.

  18. Will it have vibration?

    If so and if it’s expensive, it’ll be a good excuse for me to give to the girlfriend when I get it.

  19. Mikey,

    Yes it will have vibration.

    And whats wrong with the design?

  20. this will probaly fail

  21. im a ps3 fanboy be4 u say anything about my commet above num 20

  22. @Crazy: ive been seeing people double post quite a lot recently…what is this??

    i dont even need to double post and im still far in the lead -_-

    but yeah, im hoping it wont….so long as the software lineup brings something new to the table…something that the Wii hasnt been able to get on (HD alone wont help much)

  23. well the mock up is spot on, I just dont want the nunchuck to be optional, sony should include it in a bundle camera+Move+sub controller less then $99

  24. @taus: indeed, the optional controller should also be bundled with an extra bundle or so….for 80 😀
