Square Enix Teases PC Release, PC-Exclusive Features for Final Fantasy XV

The latest Famitsu (via Hachima) had an interview with Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata, where he talked up the game’s reception post-launch.

The most interesting tidbit from the interview is where the Square Enix boss teased a potential PC version for the game. Let the salt flow:

“I want to release the game on PC, from a technical perspective,” Tabata said. “I want to show off Final Fantasy XV running on high-end PC hardware, for PC users, and it’s something we personally want to see as well.

“I also want to try developing more on PC to look into making PC-exclusive features, like building your own questlines and even modding the game world.”

In related news, Tabata recently confirmed the game not only sold very well, it even recouped its development costs on day one.

Final Fantasy XV is available now on PS4 and Xbox One. In case you missed it, you should check out our written and video review for the game here.

    Having more people being able to play your game is a good thing.

    As long as those ‘PC Exclusive features’ are just modding, I don’t see any problem.

    Now, when it goes past that to shit that could be on the console version but isn’t, I foresee a shitstorm blowin’ in, boys.

    I’d love to play it.

    Will probably get a PS4 to remote play on my Vita (that the only reason, that will probably change after I actually buy it though), but being able to play it sooner on PC is always a welcome thing.

    FF12 is going to come out on PC probably next year, it’s the only FF we are missing (not taking into account the handhelds ones) and it’s getting a remaster for the PS4 this year.

    It would make sense since FFX-X2 were released on PC after their remaster.

    Would you shut the fuck up with this cliche damage control statement? There is NOTHING FUCKING good about adding an entirely new demographic to an existing fanbase. And when it comes to be, anytime someone tries to talk about FFXV while revealing they play on a console will get shit on by the elitist pcucks. I can already forsee you faggots saying:

    “Lmao enjoy your 22 FPS XD”
    “Hah, nice pre-made quests faggot. I’m doing my own quests.”
    “Dude, your cindy has clothes? Check mine out, you can literally see her nipples now.”
    “Wow your Regalia doesn’t play custom tracks? Only what was shipped with the disc? Sad.”

    And the worst FUCKING thing about this is that Tabata is insistant on pushing this. All because his engine is fucking garbage that he his only chance of seeing it run at a competent framerate is by pushing out a pc port instead of optimising it.

    There is plenty good. New, refreshed discussion where people learn new things about the game they might not have had known before. More thoughts on the game’s flaws and its pluses. Plus more people are enjoying themselves than before.

    And no, if an Xbox One player or a PS4 player goes “Hey, I’m currently at [insert part here], what should I do?” and like posts, the responses will most likely be just answers to said question, as what is being discussed makes platform irrelevant. If you try and make platform relevant, that is the only place where you might see some form of shitflinging.

    Finally, even beyond just the introduction to new people, its pleasant getting to see the game be allowed to be at its best as, and it appears that with re-releases, Tabata desires to add new features and improve upon his game, thus making the game better, which is good. It brings new content to the table.

    Calm down your shitposting.

    There is so much projection here I feel it’s coming out of my monitor. Funny thing is I used to think / act like what you said. But I grew up and out of it and can understand why people play on consoles for numerous reasons regardless of what they might be.

    If you thought this was a bait-like post to try and gauge for butthurt or try to “damage control” (what damage is there to control ?) then your wrong.

    Your other comments are valid and the game should run just as well as any other platform. The onus is on them for that and I believe the “exclusive features” will only cause further division and conflicts between the fanbase, modding most likely being the biggest next of the supposed optimization.

    However adding new players not only increases the games lifespan but can open up various opportunities for even console players. We will have to wait and see what happens in the future.

    The only game I have spent hours modding is Oblivion (Such a pain in the ass) With Skyrim & Fallout3/NV/4 it’s mostly just a quick install & you’re done. Also the main problem with Modding Beth games is the Gamebryo engine which FF15 doesn’t use so…………..

    Can’t argue with X-2.

    But seriously, Gust is catering to ultra beta (not everyone who plays the game, mind you) that gets triggered when there’s a male MC because they sees the male MC stealing their “waifu”

    Then again, Gust needs money and pandering to a niche crowd does work wonders for them.

    That problem literally only happens if you install a big amount of mods at the same time without reading if there are compatibility issues between some of them.

    Probably just the ones that still think of Final Fantasy as a Playstation franchise, or they just have a bias toward the platform in question.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if some fanboys still just can’t let that go, and are still butt-hurt they don’t have [insert game series here] all to themselves.

    A lot of THAT I would imagine is either buyer’s Stockholm Syndrom, or just old-fashioned hipster mentality like a certain troll is demonstrating.

    This doesn’t make sense. So by the same logic Xbox fanboys should be upset that FFXV is not an exclusive to the XBone, if they didn’t know that the game is not exclusive. This is a rather uncharitable interpretation given that most people can use the internet or are not blind and saw the other version of the game when they went into the store.

    Anyway, that’s not quite right, the crux of it all is going from exclusive to non-exclusive, it has nothing to do with being unaware.

    This is just another situation where people gain satisfaction from thinking they have something other people don’t.

    People aren’t much better when it comes to games that are excluded from a competing platform either.

    Whenever I hear my favorite franchise getting a port for another game system I’m actually fucking glad. That means more people get to enjoy the game I like.

    Maybe when I was 12 and I only had one system I’d be acting like a dick but nowadays since most of us can afford one or two consoles it’s not a big deal. More people who can play the game = more fans = more copies of the game being sold = more money for the company = more sequels, ports, etc.

    No, it doesn’t invalidate anything because I wasn’t referring to my explanation.

    I wasn’t talking about FFXV either, but rather Final Fantasy as a brand being associated with a specific platform.

    It doesn’t really matter whether its because people are still upset Final Fantasy isn’t exclusive anymore, they hate other platforms with a burning passion, or what have you.

    No matter what all we’re doing is trying to rationally explain the irrational.

    There isn’t a ‘good’ reason for any of it.

    Actually it does. You said “Probably just the ones that still think of Final Fantasy as a
    Playstation franchise, or they just have a bias toward the platform in
    question.”, which isn’t correct considering nobody is that uninformed. You are assuming the motivations of an amorphous mass of people that can’t be quantified or exemplified.

    “I wasn’t talking about FFXV either, but rather Final Fantasy as a brand being associated with a specific platform.” – again why would it? Ever since XIII FF is not exclusive.

    “No matter what all we’re doing is trying to rationally explain the irrational.” – the only irrational bit I see is catazxy’s initial post antagonising PlayStation fanboys, when it doesn’t make sense in the context of FFXV.

    I don’t expect any rational thinking when it comes to fanboys (form any platform). I’ve seen them getting mad over every exclusive going multiplat.
    Perhaps mean different things when we talk about “fanboys”, but I call that only the most delusional and irrational users of a platform. It’s fine to like a company of a product, damn, I love my ps2, ps3, psp, psvita, and xbox360, but I aways wish some of the games on that platform get on pc, since the limitation of the consoles made them look or play bad…

    To be honest your post lacks rationality. So why did you specifically target PlayStation fanboys when the game is on Xbox as well?

    ” I’ve seen them getting mad over every exclusive going multiplat.” – but FFXV is not an exclusive. Why would they be upset over a multiplatform game being released on another system?

    If anything your post seems antagonistic and fanboyish.

    No, I’m not. If you haven’t noticed, I said “I wouldn’t be surprised if SOME fanboys couldn’t let it go”.

    I never suggested it was all fanboys, let alone attempted to quantify them.

    Nobody can answer your initial question without “assuming their motivations” either, so why even ask? No definitive one exists.

    You keep bringing up not being uninformed, that has nothing to do with the point at hand. You don’t have to be to hold a grudge or bias.

    It doesn’t matter if FF isn’t exclusive anymore if people still associate it with playstation.

    Its all to do with brand association and brand loyalty. To them that is where it belongs, and some WILL take such a thing to the extreme.

    I’m not sure people begged for Idea Factory’s games specifically; that was mainly a thing back with the original Dark Souls, which From Software actually acted upon to great acclaim.

    Idea Factory just randomly decided to start bringing over their games (probably at seeing the success of Dark Souls and others), and then sold tons of copies and gained quite the following simply because their ports are of good quality and the games keep on coming frequently.

    “There is NOTHING FUCKING good about adding an entirely new demographic to an existing fanbase. ”

    It brings in money, thus assuring the continued existence and expansion of the IP. As long as the original game is not transformed into something it is not (such as EA’s misguided attempts at bringing the CoD kids to like Dragon Age), then its fine.

    I dunno, the amount of PC gamers willing to get a console for the low amount of remaining exclusives seems relatively small, let alone those willing to double dip on them.

    Doesn’t make sense to get a console now when somehow each and every third party is making its way to PC so far, especially after even companies like NIS and Gust defied all expectations and jumped in on the platform as well. It totally made sense in previous generations when it was unthinkable that tons of devs would ever leave certain consoles, but not so much nowadays.

    I still feel confident in my prediction that those two series you named will hit PC relatively soon as well, given that the (console) exclusivity logos – or lack thereof in P5’s case – don’t tend to lie.

    For ChocoISIS, in case you happen to read this: that still includes Nioh was well despite its exclusivity logo, as Sony obviously couldn’t have bought full exclusivity on the game when it was already almost done anyway.

    And I never said that you said that all fanboys are like that. I don’t care about the quantity. The issue here is that it may be 0.

    “Nobody can answer your initial question without “assuming their motivations” either, so why even ask? ” – because you are not quantifying or exemplifying this group as I said. What is the reasoning behind them being mad? The “it doesn’t have to make sense excuse” is not acceptable here I’m afraid.

    “You keep bringing up not being uninformed, that has nothing to do with
    the point at hand. You don’t have to be to hold a grudge or bias.” – what grudge or bias? Explain to me why people would be mad that an already multiplatform game will go to another platform. The only way fanboys would be mad about this is if they thought they were losing an exclusive game, which is not the case, which has everything to do with the point at hand.

    “It doesn’t matter if FF isn’t exclusive anymore if people still associate it with playstation.” – still doesn’t make it an exclusive. The people who only played the latest game on Xbox may associate it with Xbox. The Nintendo fans may associate it with the NES/SNES games. The objective truth is that the game is multiplatform.

    So, let’s summarise shall we? There’s this mythical group of fanboys who associate FF with the PlayStation brand that will be upset that FFXV, which is already a multiplatform title will be released on another system and catazxy is specifically trying to antagonise those people and just those people. Nothing unreasonable about that, nope.

    I play almost exclusively on PC now, (last console I bought was an Xbox 360 when they had 20 GB hard drives) and I have to agree with you. While all platforms seem to have fanboys that shit talk each other about their platform being the best, with PC I’ve seen people talk down to others for wanting to play games with Xbox or Playstation controllers. Even if you explain that you want to use a controller for comfort purposes, it seems that KB+M is always considered superior no matter what. I constantly see others being talked down to because of a way they choose to play a game. It’s ridiculous.

    That’s another silly area of snobbery that irks me. Sure, you’re not exactly going to get on the leaderboards of a shooter or a fighter, and it’s not really feasible to use with for example strategy games, but if someone wants to play with a controller, what’s it matter to you? Unfortunately it seems a not insignificant proportion of PC gamers nowadays are obnoxious teenage redditor types.

And let’s not even talk about the saltfest that goes on whenever an “exclusive” goes to PC. Hell, we are talking about the people who claim something dumb as “console exclusive” because PC doesn’t count for ports is legit~.

    It still makes sense to get a console. Considering its either PS4 or PC for a lot of the Japanese games not getting Nintendo censored, and the fact that there are still dozens of franchises not on the PC yet but on PSN, that alone is reason for those of us who can afford to, to get a console with a PC.

    I’m sure Nintendo fans who will be getting the Switch play a lot of PC games these days as well. I just think that Japan still needs to really see the PC to be a valid platform because their console ships are sinking.

There are games I am currently playing on various consoles that desperately need to be ported to PC due to the lack of modability and 60fps but you have to settle for shit performance and an incomplete product because the rights are with monopolistic, anti-consumer console manufacturing conglomerates like Nintendo. The sooner these shady console companies go out of business or go third party the better for everybody, that way I can have full control over my games and see their fullest potential on PC hardware. This is why every day I fight to convince people to boycott Nintendo consoles because the less sales they see, the sooner they will finally go third party so I can play their hostageware on a real gaming platform.

    Tell that to 90% of the PC userbase who are poor masterracers justifying their sub $500 gaming builds and wondering why a PS4 Pro blows them the fuck out. You can’t even show me a current generation PC game that actually takes advantage of your specifications, PC is literally a console port machine at the moment.

    Heck shw me a sub $400 gaming PC that is capable of graphics like pic related. All PC gaming is, is a technology circlejerk without the software to actually back it up. Sure you can pay $3000 to run console ports of Ubisoft games at 4k but then you get blown the fuck out by games that look better because they were optimized for a console that costs less than a laptop.

    Hoizon
    Uncharted
    Death Stranding

    Are all games that are going to smash your card to pieces and inadvertantly expose how badly you got ripped off by Nvidia when games coming out for a sub $400 machine look 100x better than any PC game or console port on the market.

    Seriously though it needs to come to PC, the game engine just like FFXV’s just can’t run on consoles properly no matter how much the lower the resolution and hide shit behind the fog. Some people want to play games at it’s fullest potential and there’s nothing wrong with that at all.

    I don’t understand why people desperately want to want FFXV to remain on console in it’s grotesque state, PC users don’t even shitpost anymore, they just want to play games properly and having FFXV run at settings that match promotional footage let alone 4k at 120fps is more than enough reason to invest in a $3000 gaming PC.

    That’s what happens when your only gaming platform is PC and you’re desperate and hungry for console ports. Quality is secondary to simply getting something to eat to nourish a state of starvation.

    It sets a bad precedent though especially for nicher and lesser known games. We kind of want people to vote with their wallets instead of showing publishers they can turn a buck on low quality games but all of your work gets undone when PC gamers buy up every and anything from Japan as long as it gets a Steam release.

    I know I’m in the minority here but I play the Souls games with Mouse+KB. It works better for me than a controller.

    > Google $500 console killer.

    > Death Stranding isn’t even out.
    True
    > Listing all 1st party game with optimizations unavailable to 3rd party devs.
    False. They have devkits and correspondence with Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft tech teams like any other publisher or first party studio. How come Horizon Zero Dawn exists when Witcher 3 that had 10x the budget and was actualy backed by the Polish government was apparently ”downgraded” for consoles? It makes no sense right? Who was the game downgraded for actually?
    > 3rd party game suffer from shitty AA and texture resolution + load time (1st party titles too in an extent)
    True
    > Shitty sales
    meme

    >It’s pretty clear PC have all the advantages compared to current-gen consoles.
    True.

    I love my gaming PC, I have a dual 1080 sli setup but I’m sick of the console downgrade meme. Publishers need to be held accountable for their actions and blaming consoles is letting anti-consumer, monopolistic, conglomerate, greedy corporate empires get away with releasing sub-quality software on the common people. All while getting their consumerbase to blame perfectly capable hardware called consoles because all their programmers are SJW’s who have more experience and interest in curating the gaming industries politics than actually making proper games.

    The fact is I shouldnt need to spend thousands to receive basic optimization on PC, my PC could have costed half as much if evil corporate publishers were held accountable and tried for their shit products and stopped trying to keep we the people down. We have to unite and fight together instead of among each other.

    I know. The thing is, most of us are conditioned to be “grateful” when something got ported to PC. (I admit I’m guilty of this when it comes to JRPG)

    > Publishers need to be held accountable for their actions

    Well that’s the hard part. They just put the blame to devs even though they’re the ones setting stupidly short development cycle and QA session.

    > The fact is I shouldn’t need to spend thousands to receive basic optimization on PC

    Agreed. PC optimization usually put on backburner (if not non-existent beyond start-up crsah fix) and they just rely on jacking up system requirements.

    Deus Ex:HR is pretty unplayable with 8GB of RAM especially in the town center and moving between areas (Notice the massive swap R/W) with its epic loadtime and frame drops in Praha…

    Just Cause 3 took the shitty port crown though.

    Please stop putting tildes at the end of every sentence~. It makes you look like a fourteen-year-old and is annoying as fuck to read in general~. And I said in that regard. I’m not about to dispute that all fanboys are awful, but they don’t circlejerk over the same things. PS4 owners don’t stroke their dicks about resolution/performance/general “superiority” of playing on a PS4, probably because that would be dumb as fuck.

    With the advent of PS4 Pro they do. Hell, even without it, the sole argument against Xbox One the first year was that on PS4 you could play in slightly better resolution. Toxicity based about performance is no longer exclusive to PC gamers~.

    The circlejerking in that area has decreased over time this generation, actually, with the Wii U being a massive flop and the PS4 and the Xbone being quite comparable in specs (their revisions are massively different either). And in most regards really. People always talk about performance when Nintendo’s relevant because their consoles have generally been cheaper and less technically capable. It’s still there with Sony and Xbox fanboys, but it mostly comes from PC fanboys nowadays (Sony fans generally brag about its exclusives instead).

    >There is NOTHING FUCKING good about adding an entirely new demographic to an existing fanbase.

    Platform diversity is never a bad thing. It gives consumers tangible choices over where they want to purchase a game. It gives developers more avenues to make a return on their work.

    The only people that benefit from platform exclusivity are publishers, since users have to pay an additional hardware fee up front to play that game.

    This is not an indictment of PC being a superior platform to consoles. I myself enjoy the couch console experience more than PC’s as I grew up playing games on consoles. It will always come down to what you prefer, though when you take the choice away from customers, that is never a good thing, period. It’s not a good thing for PC exclusives, and it’s not a good thing for console exclusives.

    There’s no exclusivity logo and this is Xseed, you were guaranteed to get this within months from the very beginning.

    Kind of a shame Chilli’s list has so much garbage on it, would’ve loved to gone through most of it otherwise. I honestly do miss certain older titles like Catherine and Ninja Gaiden II, however.

    A whole lot of the oldier Atelier games can be played on emulator.

    KOF 14 will likely get a port since KOF 13 was a huge PC success.

    DW Godseekers will probably get a port too.

    It’s whether or not you’re willing to wait for the ports. Sometimes game companies do simultaneous releases, sometimes they don’t.

    But you have to admit man, you can still get a LOT OF JP CONSOLE TITLES on PC now than you could 5-7 years ago.

    But yes, it’s still not an excuse NOT to get a PS4 and/or PS Vita if you can afford it. Why deprive yourself of fun games?
