Final Fantasy XIII
Stand down: Fantasy fanatics--we probably won't learn anything new about FFXIII (the first chapter in Square Enix's ambitious multigame Fabula Nova Crystallis project) until the Tokyo Game Show at the end of September. And the bummers don't end there: At a recent shareholders' meeting, Square President Yoichi Wada made some startling comm about next-gen development, promising more episc online content, increased in-game advertising, and regular "software updates." Frankly, Wada's planner "updates" sound more like bug-fixing patches than cool bonus content. He explained that Square Enix could save on the huge cost of debugging by passip the bugs on to consumers and fixing problems afte the fact. Yikes!
