View Full Version : Since you're already making good use of SE's CGI department... (cross-promotion idea)

It kind of just struck me:

Seeing how Deus Ex is all sci-fi black-leather-ified, and with how Adam looks all swank with his outfit, wouldn't it be appropriate to maybe discuss with someone at Square-Enix Japan for some internal brand cross-promotion between Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Final Fantasy Versus XIII? I mean, last I checked, Noctis, the main character for that game, also was in an urban-decay-esque futuristic setting, and also wearing black, with extra emphasis on his suite of professionally designed real-world clothing. Not to mention the shared quasi-renaissance future-Italy mafia motif they have going on.

There's some real potential for greater Square-Enix/Eidos brand awareness, and I don't see how it couldn't hurt (outside of additional man hours spent on implementing the skin and bug testing it so far into development).

Could someone pass the idea on to EM's marketing department? :D

That's not really what I meant, but I'm also a huge sucker for cross over games (i.e Smash Bros, MvC, etc), so it wouldn't be outside the realm of possibilities.

Some, if not all of the replies in the thread have been pretty funny, though.

That never stopped Ubisoft Montreal and Kojima Productions from working together, now did it?

The smallest of shared themes and motifs are enough to spark a growing business relationship. In this case, cyberpunk renaissance and swank clothing.

Now, everyone just chant with me:

you are putting more thought into that statement than that was originally intended, in any case being "stuck in the 90s" can be applied to the Final Fantasy series quite easily and I do think that this subject on applying Final Fantasy to another game/franchise is somewhat also so 90s.

The peacock feathers are a bit much. The way you just described the outfits is dangerously treading from "Final Fantasy official concept art" to "Final Fantasy deviantArt fanart."

All joking aside, I am quite serious about the proposition. I think it would be a missed business opportunity to let this slip by. Cross-fanbase genre promotion is the best way to get the word around to other "hardcore" gamers who may be more interested in what they know, than what they've never really given thought to checking out.

Deus Ex, as a brand, holds high respect amongst PC gaming RPG enthusiasts, primarily in the western design sense, but Final Fantasy holds a larger gender split, and holds a global market mindshare, similar to something like Metal Gear Solid.

Deus Ex already has an appeal to the Japanese market through its western cyberpunk aesthetic, and DE3's stylishness speaks for itself. But it also has no brand foot hold there either. While I imagine that S-E will make every effort to make the game a success in its own domestic market, the subject of this thread is an area that I can see there being less of a push for. More hooks for sales = profit. So why not?

Not to mention, there's an undeniably large and untapped market in the Final Fantasy-friendly demographic that a hook like a cameo outfit or skin would attract. So why deny that additional market share?

On a side note: I'm kind of hoping that the western release of DE3 will include multi language tracks. After watching the Japanese TGS trailer, there were a whole lot of people who felt a huge Ghost in the Shell vibe, and I imagine it'd be pretty cool to have the option there for those who want it regardless. You know, if the disc space allows for it, anyways (*cough*blu-ray*cough*).

There are so many things wrong with this post, I don't know where to start.

Where in the world does this blu-ray comment come from? That is such an amazingly petty thing to say. I mentioned blu-ray purely based on the fact that there's a **** load of space for the taking on the format, unlike DVD9, thus allowing for multiple language tracks. The PC platform, however, is a non-issue.

Who said anything about SE "reviving" DX and wanting to use that as an outlet for making an FF style game? Either you're very poor at reading comprehension, or I don't know what. Not to mention, IIRC, the DX3 brand revival was well into being green-lit and pre-production before the S-E purchase.

And for a moment there, when you said "if you really are so sad and want a ****ty story with over-hyped graphics," I thought you were actually dissing the game that this entire board is based around :S

I honestly think you didn't read a single thing I actually typed up, and just went and hit the quote button with angry FF-hate nerdrage.

My ENTIRE POINT FOR THIS THREAD is based on the idea of A) Eidos and S-E better leveraging brand potential via cross-promotion, and B) Do said cross-promotion by including little things that will in no way adversely affect the game itself, i.e. an alternate outfit/skin for Adam, specifically anything from FFvXIII's Noctis's wardrobe, and do the same thing for Final Fantasy versus XIII when that comes out, with Noctis having an alt skin/outfit based on Adam's black coat.

Seriously, that's all I've been suggesting this entire time. Learn to read.

That's what I've been essentially getting at. No more, no less.

I'd like to know where you got the notion of someone recommending mixing gameplay styles. I certainly didn't. Please feel free to comb my previous posts to see where I said such a terrible thing.

But again, how would this be "breaking" or invading into the game's sanctity or validity as a wholesome, Deus Ex product? What I'm suggesting isn't "Hay gaiz, SQUARE-ENIX JAPAN shuld TOTALLY tell EM to put in CLOUD AND SEPHIROTH into Deus Ex 3 so that more people will buy it, derp derp.

"And make it turn-based. With Chocobos."

...Was I completely unclear in my original post? There seems to be some widespread confusion about what I'm proposing.

Should I have used key words like "non-invasive" and "will not affect the final product in any adverse manner"?

Who said anything about SE "reviving" DX and wanting to use that as an outlet for making an FF style game? Either you're very poor at reading comprehension, or I don't know what. Not to mention, IIRC, the DX3 brand revival was well into being green-lit and pre-production before the S-E purchase.

you clearly haven't been paying attention to the lead-up of the sellout, SE owned the majority of the stocks for quite some time before taking all.


when you said "if you really are so sad and want a ****ty story with over-hyped graphics," I thought you were actually dissing the game that this entire board is based around :S
Don't judge a book by it's cover? a very BIG assumption there. Tell me, how good was DXHR? obviously, either you are working on this project or possess a time travelling machine for someone to know such thing.

seeing as you are taking this personally, "dissing" is not a good word to use in a discussion.


My ENTIRE POINT FOR THIS THREAD is based on the idea of A) Eidos and S-E better leveraging brand potential via cross-promotion
not only would that go against SE's word but that would rather stupid if you wanted Immersion in a game

B) Do said cross-promotion by including little things that will in no way adversely affect the game itself, i.e. an alternate outfit/skin for Adam, specifically anything from FFvXIII's Noctis's wardrobe, and do the same thing for Final Fantasy versus XIII when that comes out, with Noctis having an alt skin/outfit based on Adam's black coat.

There is no such thing as "little" when dealing with a medium this big. Maybe in a book or a comic would such things be possible but then again this is no book, it's more of a equivalent to a interactive film where every image/sound could have a cataclysmic effect on anything.
