Lightning Returns explains itself

Square-Enix just sent us a new video of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, which will be released on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 next week. A good opportunity to leave next gen consoles to see the end of the trilogy.

About the game


What's up?
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @KORNdog: Assuming, since I have no knowledge of how much porting costs, it takes $1-2 million to port to XB1, that's a 2 to 5 times return, no? (0 minute ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Sdarts: define "well" in the context of a multimillion dollar dev cost project? they may have broke even, if that. if they sold "well" we'd be getting a sequel instead of insomniac making spiderman (1 minute ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @KORNdog: A publisher earns $42 of every $60 game, the other $18 are the 30% cut that Sony, Microsoft, Steam, etc. get for selling in their stores. So $48 x 100.000 = 4.8 million. (2 minutes ago)

    b0vril because console power>games. (2 minutes ago)
  • b0vril
    b0vril Everything will will be ok for MS once they release the X (3 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog fact is. neir developers released neir on the 360. sales were obviously not what they wanted from that platform and so didn't bother with porting the sequel. it's business. that's how they all work. (3 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Didn't Quantum Break and Sunset Overdrive sell well though? (4 minutes ago)
