Star Ocean 4

There's a rumor on the internet that Star Ocean: The Last Hope will be released on the PlayStation 3 after a scan from the latest Famitsu magazine has appeared.

Star Ocean: The Last Hope coming to PS3?

Let's hope the game will be released on the PlayStation 3 so that more fans (like me) can play it.

That's right, Square-Enix has proven that Final Fantasy is recession proof. Opening day sales have ranked up to 100,000 copies worldwide. Of course, this does include all of the imports from people looking to pop the FFXIII demo disc into their PS3. The blu-ray version of Final Fantasy VII Advent Children has sold more than three times any other anime released on blu-ray.

The movie itself features both Japanese and English audio tracks. With the Final Fantasy XIII trial having a heavy contribution in these figures, the demo only features a Japanese language and subtitle track.

When the blu-ray hits North American shores on June 2nd, it will be interesting to see how sales compare against it's Japanese counterpart that included a trial to the most anticipated RPG of all time. Stay tuned to see where this goes.

As the release date of Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children--accompanied by the Final Fantasy XIII trial--is just one day away, some people have been lucky enough to grab hold of their copies. And, of course, the first attraction is the Final Fantasy XIII demo. Whilst playing through the trial, many people have begun trying to take screencaps and videos to post online for those unable to play the trial, there is one particular screenshot provided at the end of the trial.

It appears as though Square-Enix plans to capitalize on this holiday season as much as possible. Of course, this release window is strictly for Japan only. The US and EU release dates are expected to be sometime after April 2010.

Stay tuned for further updates on the release date of Final Fantasy XIII!

The NA version will not include a Final Fantasy XIII trial, however it is expected to have some Final Fantasy XIII trailers included. While none of these trailers are expected to be exclusive to this release, it will be rendered to show what the game looks like so far on HD playback.
