    Thought XIII-2 was the end?
    After watching the ending I certainly knew it was coming, but will anyone buy a potential XIII-3?
    Many of you may not find this interesting, but the ones who do, What do you think?

    Considering how much hate XIII-2 got, it's pretty damn surprising they'd even consider 3. I never had any problem with XIII-1 though. I dunno what all the fuss was about. It's a solid title, for an FF game. Never beat it since I generally play RPGs for the story, and I certainly wasn't going to play for the gameplay...
    Dunno how XIII-2 ended so I really can't comment much else on if 3 would be good or bad.

    I think overall the fans want a new world with new characters though.

    XIII had a great storyline but you couldn't deviate from it at all. The game was 100% story
    XIII-2 had a blehh story which could be completely sidetracked until you want to actually do it.

    Both were ok games, but both were are fault for the opposite reasons.
    Nothing but story - Everything but Story

    Mix them together and hopefully XIII-3 will be perfect

    XIII got a lot of hate, but gets some solid respect for being an at least somewhat decent game at this point.
    XIII-2 got even more hate due to just not being that great. I haven't played it, but from what I gather, the redeeming qualities are pretty few here.

    If this trend continues, XIII-3 will simply be poop. I can't believe how much SE is leeching this though. There were a number of better FF titles that they could have leeched like this, but haven't even gotten a simple remake. I can't understand how this stuff is decided. Hell, instead of leeching one of the more sub-par FF games for all its barely worth, how about just giving us a genuinely good game that isn't stationed on the shaky foundation of two previous titles? Oh wait, that's not how SE does things.

    I heard they're taking too long because they're using the luminous engine, i'm sure it'd be a success if it came out: Great gameplay, seemingly great story, great graphics, kh battle system!
    Many great games go through development hell, heck it took too long for BBS to release, but it was great and definitely not vaporware.

    First XIII, XIII-2 and XIV aren't as good as the others in the series but now they are continuing the XIII-2. It didn't even sell that well I guess it might not be that expensive to make it since they have a lot of the things already developed but still. Plus the DLC and other things make it more questionable.

    I've yet to play XIII-2. I had about enough with just XIII.

    The problem with FF XIII-2 wasn't the gameplay but the shitty storyline. Most of the actual interesting story details have been imprisoned in the fragments you collect during the game.

    In other news, Square Enix slowly sweeps Final Fantasy Versus XIII under the rug as if it never existed.

    Please, make it happen.. Just trolling, liked the XIII story and technics but that's about it, gameplay wise not that exciting with bad summon use yet again.. Second not tempted unless a bargain et under 10euro, not even bothered with the PSN demo yet!

    Well FFXIII was supposed to be a trilogy, so it was only a matter of time before XIII-3 was hinted at

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    My faith in Squeenix is all but lost. If they announce the VII remake the fans have demanded, I shall believe once more.

    However, they said they won't even consider doing a remake until they create a new title that surpasses VII. I doubt XIII-3 is going to be the one.

    I have my bet on XV or maybe XVI.
