FIRST 10 MINUTES | PS3 Thursday, December 17, 2009 | 6:22 PM

The first 10 minutes:
Final Fantasy XIII

The first 10 minutes:<br>Final Fantasy XIII

It took Square a bit more than 3 years after the release of the Playstation 3 in Japan to finally get Final Fantasy XIII out, but now it's finally in DjMizuhara's hands. He managed to capture and encode this first video in between big crashes of his PC, but you can a huge number of these as soon as his PC is back up and running.
Update: Added a gameplay video, and a few captures.
Update 2: Added a second gameplay video, and let's all thank DjMizuhara for managing to encode all this in between hard crashes of his PC.

Everyone ha seen this. It's called the first 10 min. from a 30 min. DEMO!
Go play past the demo then bring us the footage, c'mon.

You should REALLY learn how to say thanks. not everyone played the demo. I DIDNT!
Not to mention the fact that this is a video representing the absolute final product which people would want to see and it's coming to your seat hours after launch ...

Yea, looks exactly like the demo, dont see much of a downgrade either. That said, framerate is still an issue and seems to dip in exactly the same places.

Sorry for the delay in videos...as BlimBlim said I'm having massive PC problems crashing during encoding.

Hey 3monthsp: Before you open your mouth think, this is the final product of the game like Alimokrane said. People wanna see the final product to see the differences between the two. Plus many people haven't seen the demo in the first place. I'll be uploading more videos just as soon as I fix my problematic PC. Oh, the amount of time to producer a HD video is around 1H:30 in total and thats without of course playing the game. So please be a little more patient, the videos WILL arrive. Thanks

We appreciate your efforts very very much. Thanks for taking the time to produce this at the expense of your playing time.

Hey DJmizuhara, ignore the negative comments...everyone knows how much work you and the other guys put into putting out these first 10minute vids!

On topic : it looks fantastic, but not my cup of tea...looking forward to seeing more though strangely enough

nope, the demo was only available on the blu-ray FF7: Advent Children Complete disc in the US and Japan, everywhere else missed out unless they imported it. It kinda sucks cos i have Advent Children complete but I live in the UK and have the region 2 version of it so i missed out on the demo :(

Thank you DJ, thank you GamerSyde, keep up with the FUC*ING AWESOME work! ;D

I watching this ice/fire cavern video on 1up yesterday and I really dug the music!! The track was so chill, I watched the video like 4 times.

Will buy the game next year, whenever I get a job :P

I REALLY need to get this game...and I really hope the US version has japanese audio... i hate the english dub..and the lip sync at the CG's with the english audio is just...argh...
Japanese audio + English sub FTW

Keep'em coming DJ!!! Nice second video although the game seems rather easy no ?
Commented on 2009-12-17 18:17:11
Yeah, the beginning of the game is pretty easy it's all tutorials though...helping the player getting use to the battle system. It's still a lot of fun!

pretty sure they already confirmed that it wouldnt come with the japenese dialog as an option
Commented on 2009-12-17 19:18:19
The game is too big to fit multiple vocal tracks, its already on a DL Blu-Ray and it would be pretty much impossible on the 360

Great job, Mizuhara.

US did NOT have the demo. Only Japan did!

However, US and UK will get a demo for sure before the release in March 2010 (via PSN).

I got a confimation on that back when I asked Square-Enix if the ACC (US) would have the demo.

About the game


What's up?
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane On a different subject all together. if only the entire world acted like this: [url] (13 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Gears 4 is a refinement of the Gears 3 formula, which is great if you loved Gears 3. @alimokrane: I'm partial to the Embar & Overkill. (26 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @Phaethon360: I agree on the enemy variety, definataly but I simply love the little tricks and bits they added here and there. Best weapon has to be the DropShot. Ball of fun! (28 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz But with regards to variety, do you mean enemy variety? Because I agree. That is spot on. Gears 3 had so many different Locust & Lambent classes which kept Horde rounds fresh, Gears 4 does not. (49 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz PhaeKO outta nowhere. Rod said he wanted to do it right before doing it different and 343 were the blueprint for this which is why a lot of the Gears community still remains intact. (51 minutes ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 That and the variety just isn't there. So many different enemy and weapon types in Gears 2, which was the high point of the series for me. Gears 3 wasn't bad but it was on the downswing for me. (56 minutes ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 I really dislike Gears 4. Horde 3.0 was a disappointment, and the mechanics haven't changed much since Gears 1. After playing the remake so soon it just felt like more of the same. (57 minutes ago)
