March 7th, 2014 is an interesting day

North American dates:

FF7 released: sept 7 1997
FF7-ps3 tech demo: june 6 2005

FF versus 13 shown: june 6 2006
Present day: march 29 2013

It was 2829 days between FF7's release and the Tech Demo. It's been 2486 days since FFv13 was first announced. March 7th, 2014 will be 2829 vs 2829 days.

Now this means absolutely nothing, just wanted to bring up the point how EPIC the tech demo was in that span from FF7 release to then, so what graphical upgrades can we expect from FFv13 between 2006 and 2013+ (even though only cgi was shown back then :P)?

Oh, that's really interesting. I applaud you for actually taking the time to figure out the number of days since Versus's announcement . . . and March 7, 2014, falls under "Q1 2014," which I speculate is a possible release period for Versus. :P

As for your comment about graphical improvement, I like to think of it as a [finite] curve with an asymptote (the asymptote being completely realistic graphics, that is).

Something like the bottom right curve in this picture: http://www.mesacc.edu/~marfv02121/readings/rational/rational2.GIF

At first, you make leaps and bounds, but with every enhancement, the differences become minimal. Will the curve and the line ever touch? That's a question for another topic (and another board).

The difference between the original FF7 intro and its tech demo is much bigger than, for example, Versus's E3 2006 trailer and its 1st Production Department one (I'm speaking of the CGI since there aren't any previous game play footage to compare!).

With all of this in mind, I don't expect much of a graphical improvement between what we saw in 2011 and what we shall soon see. However, I expect that, overall, footage will be much more polished than that of 2 years ago.

TC how on earth did you get the idea in your head to count the number of those days and compare them????

@zombie: Heck, I've been looking at previous FF release dates, and from that information, predicting when Versus might be released. Guess how that's worked out?

Anyways, to use FF7, too, of all things . . . though I can see why. It's the face of the FF series, to a certain extent. Hasn't Versus been elevated to "FF7" status in the past?

FF Versus XIII was announced in May 2006, not June 2006. Get you facts right, bro.

Final Fantasy XII is a masterpiece in both game design and story.
