The magazine owners haven't picked up their jaws from the floor yet. Give them some more time.
That could take all day! They need to share so we can all drop our jaws in unison.

Depends on how hot-looking or promising the game is. Scans for potentially good games are out already, see: Ninokuni.
Both sound like they're going to be amazing so I can't fault them for getting those scans first. Still, I need Versus scans far more.

Some of it is the same, but thought I'd share.

More Versus, Agito, and 3rd Birthday Updates

This update comes from FF Reunion. The Square Enix fan site reports the following bits, presumably based off various flying get sources from Famitsu and Dengeki, both of which seem to have some major Square Enix media this week:

* The Versus screenshots show a fight with a weaponized Behemoth in a city.
* Square Enix will be showing an unannounced title at TGS. Given the context, I think this means a Nomura game.
* Nomura says that the Versus visual quality will improve even beyond what's shown in the new screenshots.
* Agito's development is progressing well. You'll be able to move about on the world map via Chocobo and air ship.
* The 3rd Birthday will be of such quality that you won't think it's a PSP game. This applies to the graphics and volume.
* Nomura apparently says The 3rd Birthday will be the ultimate PSP title... until Agito comes out.

Hopefully this game will turn out better than the trainwreck that was 13.

I still can't believe square overlaid the battle menu over the cutscene that takes place on top of the train at the beginning of the game in their initial trailer for 13, so I'll remain apprehensive about this game until people have played it and given their impressions.

As I said in the last Versus thread, they really should just drop XIII from the title. The story connections to FFXIII are utterly vague and irrelevant to most of the audience.... and marketing-wise it's not really that smart to link this to what will be an ancient game by the time this finally comes out. Even if FFXIII hadn't been such a mixed bag I would have said this, but especially so now.

How about "Final Fantasy Versus"? Give it its own sub-series... it probably deserves it much more than Crystal Chronicles.

Or better yet, Final Fantasy XV
