I remember back in 2006 when Final Fantasy Versus XIII was announced as part of the “Fabula Nova Crystalis” range of games. I remember thinking that it was a bit too much to announce so many Final Fantasy titles. I was actually worried about Final Fantasy overload.
What a silly thought that was. It would be three years before the first title in Fabula Nova Crystalis is released and another two years before a second title joined it.
So where’s Final Fantasy Versus XIII? Apparently Square Enix is still working it. And as this timeline from August 2012′s Game Informer outlines, they’ve been working on it for a long, long time.
Activation delays continued with Teksavvy as Rogers and/or TekSavvy lost the provisioning ticket. My Rogers internet service is still up and running, but I have no idea how long that will last as I did request to have it disconnected on the 14th of June.
TekSavvy’s tech support resent the ticket on Friday, but I was then left a a voicemail about scheduling an activation date.
What? Rogers shouldn’t need to visit me since I have an active line already. That’s usually the case, however it looks like Rogers will have to visit me. And as of right now there is a 3 day window for that visit.
Update: I also got another order confirmation e-mail from them. That’s three order confirmations for the same activation. I sincerely hope I’m not being charged for service that I’m unable to use.
It’s not a delay if it’s just following the pre-established pattern of “Rockstar titles release in May”. Like Red Dead Redemption and L.A Noire before it, Max Payne 3 will be filling our hearts full of lead in May instead of the initial March timeframe.
The exact date is May 15th, 2012 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and May 29th, 2012 for the PC. I’m getting the PC version. I sincerely hope AMD/ATI will have their drivers in order and not botch the launch like they do for nearly every major release in the past 8 months.
I won’t be surprised to see Grand Theft Auto V make a May 2013 debut.
The PlayStation Vita will not be hitting North American or European store shelves this holiday season. Only Sony’s home country of Japan will be getting their hands on the next generation handheld device.
North America and Europe will be getting their hands on the Vita in early 2012. This sounds like a potential stock and manufacturing issue, but is that all?
I think Sony is worried after seeing the Nintendo 3DS and its early price cut. They need to maintain momentum and the only way they could do that is to give developers more time to make games. They cannot afford to cut price like Nintendo did with their handheld, so all they have to rely on is software.
If I were a betting man, I’d peg “early 2012″ as March 2012.
