I thought about picking up 3 for the DS, but never got around to it. Hopefully 4 will catch my interest more...since 3 was on my 'eh' list

I wished it was for PSP...TT___TT

Was about to get a DS but got a PSP instead. >o< But the new FF title I want to get also the others...:sweatdrop

Does anyone know what Dissidia means? I think it is in Latin...

Oh yeah...this is what it says on the teaser site that opened today:

I'm interested in Crisis Core, myself. There was a trailer on the net a few months back, which I believe I posted in my AF Blog. It looked interesting, even considering that I've never really been a Final Fantasy fan.

It's typically a party hosted by Square Enix where they get to know people better and announce new games for the next year or something. I think this is their second party they held like anually.

I liked the third star oceans but I'm not buying a ps3 for the game. Since its going to go to the ps3 most likely.

I wonder what would happen to the playstation if Square started to make all there games for the Wii/DS/GC

I also heard Square changed the battle system of Final Fantasy, well the news one. They put the same battle system Kingdom Hearts has, but I'm interested in the ones for Japan as seeing as they have he character I like. Also Crisis core is the remix of VII? Or is it Zack's story?

Crisis Core is Zack's story. A FF7 remake is just a rumour currently, but it seems to get a lot of support as a fact from all the remakes lately.
from what i've seen, FF versux XIII is supposed to be more kingdom hearts style, while FFXIII is more like the other FF's just with a different battle system again.

also looking forward to their new rpg using the unreal engine
