Europe gets Final Fantasy XII early


Two days ago a little digg (on digg.com) proclaimed that the full copy of Final Fantasy XII had been leaked and was available as a downloadable torrent. Comments appeared to confirm that the download was playable.

Though the financial impact to Square Enix would most likely have been Minimal (given the expertise required to burn the file onto disc and get it to play on a modded ps2), Square didn't waste any time. 1up are reporting that numerous sites have taken the torrent offline or shut down their listing altogether, however they have confirmed that some torrent files are live and active. The game is officially set for release in US on October 31st and Europe next year February 23rd.....

Full story from 1up

Is this coming to the 360..?

The Elderly said...

nah not a ditty on the forums, though they did give us xi online (what about 5 years after general release on PC), so anything is possible..... hope i'm still alive to see it... bet it'll see a ps3 version before the 360 catchs a sniff.

Damn those hackers! If it was a rare game I'd understand, even condone, but not even a newly released game and they attack it like rabid dogs on an unwitting child.

Looks like I'm going hunting tonight...

I'll go hacker helping then :)

Really can't feel very sorry if a huge corporation looses a $ or a yen.

(Puts gnome on hit list),

It's not the coporations I feel for, it's those brilliant minds that pull such an epic together. Such Robin Hood mentality shall not work for me

Indeed Timerunner i can see your point, but I dare say the designers, programmers, script writers have been ripped off long before i go fork my cash out....

The financial impact on Square is going to be minimal, how many people do you know that have a modded ps2 capable of playing a clone disc or the software to burn a ps2 copy..... (looks at Gnome)

Apart from those present?

gnome said...

Elderly.... You may henceforth speak on my behalf.

Case rested.

The Elderly said...

...... what you mean i'm right? jeez I better sit down, the bloods just run to my head.....

TheTimeRunner said...

Wait a tick, I thought gnome didn't have a PS2. Modded or otherwise.

The Elderly said...

(checks archives........) yes timerunner you are absolutely right, a touch of the frozen brain cells.

Gnome does not have a ps2, but he might know of a ps2 owner who theoretically would benefit from his "burning" skills, indeed if he were to have such skills in the first place....which is not clear.... and an entirely fictional and false representation of the character known only as "Gnome"


a lot of things are unclear right now.....

(switches on the light.....)
ah hah!!!!

knew something was amiss.......

gnome said...

Timerunner is correct. no ps2... yet... But, still, Elderly may speak on my behalf anytime... And modchiping is quite unneccesary on a Dreamcast...

The Elderly said...

I stand corrected

(elderly stands in middle of floor wearing his t-shirt with the big tick logo.....)
