Is the STeam logo real or am i still dreaming??
If they release a Triple Bundle for Steam on PC, wow a dream would become true...

17th Sep 2014, 08:48
The Steam logo is the real deal. I'll keep an eye out for updates, and I believe Sora9669 will, too (http://forums.eu.square-enix.com/showthread.php?t=11215&p=121235#post121235). :)

17th Sep 2014, 15:52
Would be amazing if they release FF XIII this month or in october. :)

Anyway, I'm excited to see more news.

Yes, The Final Fantasy XIII Trilogy Is Coming To PC (http://www.siliconera.com/2014/09/18/yes-final-fantasy-xiii-trilogy-coming-pc/) (Siliconera)
- Here Are The System Requirements (http://www.siliconera.com/2014/09/18/system-requirements-final-fantasy-xiii-pc/) For Final Fantasy XIII On PC.
- Pre-order it on Steam (http://store.steampowered.com/agecheck/app/292120/)!

18th Sep 2014, 17:23
Hi i'd love to get it but will it work on a 2560x1080 monitor? I'm assuming not because it's ported from consoles which run at 16:9 resolutions. If not i suppose I could run it at 1080p

18th Sep 2014, 17:36
I believe that the best way to get a straight answer to your question would be to contact Steam directly, _Dan_S.

We Played Final Fantasy XIII On A Tablet (http://www.siliconera.com/2014/09/18/played-final-fantasy-xiii-tablet-using-square-enixs-cloud-streaming-service-dive/) Using Square Enix’s Cloud Streaming Service, Dive In (Siliconera)
- Similar to Netflix, Final Fantasy XIII on tablets automatically adjusts the resolution of the game depending how much bandwidth is available.

18th Sep 2014, 21:10
Would be nice if we could get a FAIR CHOICE for every gamer between a DRM-free option (e.g. GOG) and a Steam-Version!
It´s the only way you should deal with PC-Gaming!

- Final Fantasy XIII is coming out on 9th October 2014. That’s only three weeks away.

19th Sep 2014, 22:58
It's kind of funny to me that XIII is priced the same as their DS games and only a little more than their 15-year-old games. Square really has no clue how to price their PC games. it's kind of endearing.

Square Enix Delays (http://www.siliconera.com/2014/10/05/square-enix-delays-final-fantasy-vii-ffxiii-cloud-streaming-service-dive/) Final Fantasy VII And FFXIII Cloud Streaming Service, Dive In (Siliconera)
- Dive In was scheduled to launch on October 9 with Final Fantasy VII International, Final Fantasy XIII, and Season of Mystery: The Cherry Blossom Murders. After running tests, Square Enix decided to delay the service until a later, unannounced date.

6th Oct 2014, 13:41
Not sure where to report this. I believe there's a mistake on the store page.

I noticed two PC version on store page, however I believe one is actually PS3 version.

This one looks like PS3 version, however platform indicates: Windows XP/Vista/Win7. If I click on PS3 link from Xbox360 version it takes me to this link.

Mod: you can remove my post after you read this.

6th Oct 2014, 15:18
Thank you for the heads up, PseudoKite! I'll notify the store right away. :)

6th Oct 2014, 16:19
Also it would be nice to have steam cards added to the PC version store page even though the official press release stated there would be.

Also some proper PC version screenshots and not PS3 screenshots would be nice too! And well any information about the PC release would be good, us steam users have been left in the dark would love to have some information please Grimorie. Like Supported resolutions and graphical features and unlocking the frame rate.

6th Oct 2014, 23:12
I will keep an eye out for updates, DarkShadowRage. Most likely we won't have anything new to announce until the release date (that's how things usually work).

6th Oct 2014, 23:26
What about pre-loading the game? 30 gigs is pretty big and a lot of steam users would like to pre-load the game before release cause some of them have slow connections.

6th Oct 2014, 23:29
Yeah, please update us with any news about the pre-load, Grimoire, thanks in advance. :)

6th Oct 2014, 23:44
I will let you know immediately should I see anything. At the moment, neither the blog (http://na.square-enix.com/us/) nor the game's official Twitter (https://twitter.com/officialffxiii) or Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/FinalFantasyXIII) have any new details to offer.

7th Oct 2014, 00:01
Yeah, after the announcement they've been silent lol and to be honest we've been worried about that. We just don't wanna get skimped out on, we love square products and we love supporting more square games on steam. I'm worried about launch day, but thanks for your hard work Grimorie.

7th Oct 2014, 20:35
No preload yet but according to the update to the Specs on the Steam Store page (http://store.steampowered.com/app/292120/), the HD space requirement doubled :)

this excites me, hope to hear more about it soon.

9th Oct 2014, 18:37
I hope you guys get patches out ASAP cause this is a cluster **** man, i'm sorry, i defended this game a lot hoping it would be good, we got the low quality 360 cutscenes, our button prompts don't stay and we have to turn them on every time we start the game, we have 0 resolution options, no nothing i'm sorry but how is this acceptable for a PC game? we expected so much and got very little.

Hell FF7 and FF8 got more than this, what is this? i'm really depressed over this now.

9th Oct 2014, 21:15
I just found out that I bought a complete **** of a game. I really hope you guys make this right because this is unacceptable. I was really looking forward to playing this too :(

9th Oct 2014, 22:20
My whole game runs like ass and my rig is more than enough to handle this, 12 fps...what the hell.

10th Oct 2014, 16:24
Run this on my laptop which rig are worse than my pc - the game run without stuttering or lag.
Run this on my PC which had much better spec than my laptop - the game run with stuttering and lag.

What the hell am i thinking when buying this ****? Fix please

-Square Enix confirmed that due to fan feedback they will be updating the PC release of Final Fantasy XIII next month to include resolution options as well.

Just want to say, so, so, SO glad that SE is starting to listen to the fanbase--not just years at a time, but in a span of months. This is great news. This, in my opinion (not just this game, but this mindset), will bring SE back where they belong. Who knows...it may have taken the whole Versus, XIII, and XIV debacle to bring this about...but if that's what it took, then I'm glad some good is coming out of it.

Just want to point out, on the steam announcement, they also say they're introducing "graphical options" in addition to resolutions, which sounds particularly interesting.
