Now that they’ve hired Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi to work for Microsoft Game Studios. Now we just have to wait for the next Xbox to come out; till then I’m not ditching my PS2 or Gamecube.
I am worried that Sakaguchi said this though:
“Microsoft’s cutting-edge technologies in the next-generation platform will allow me to bring to life an array of ideas that I have had for many years,” Sakaguchi said. “I want these games to be alive with a new vision for gaming and vividly depict new characters that will transcend the game, find a place in the hearts of gamers, and make time spent with my games a fond and long-lasting memory.”
With most of the cutting-edge technologies revolving around graphical effects I worry that gameplay and story will take a back seat to graphics.
I just pray Sakaguchi’s games won’t be a replay of Fable, but with better graphics.
