Square Enix teases English dubbed Final Fantasy XV clip

Square Enix teases English dubbed Final Fantasy XV clip

English speaking fans of Final Fantasy, consider yourselves teased. Square Enix has just released, or in this case, re-released the trailer for Final Fantasy XV, but this time without the subtitles. Instead, what fans and viewers will get are the first ever sighting, or rather hearing, of English voices for the upcoming installment of the beloved Japanese RPG franchise. Some more hardcore JRPG fans, however, might prefer the game in its original Japanese voices, given how dubs are sometimes a case of hit or miss.

Xbox One’s November sales outpace PS4 for the first time

It seems Chrstimas came a month early for Microsoft. We saw it last week and now another independent research confirms it. Microsoft's Xbox One has indeed, for the first time, outsold the PlayStation 4 in the US, though only considering the month of November. The recent holiday shopping spree was a big break for Microsoft's console, beleaguered by its rivalry with Sony's counterpart. That victory was not without its price, however, as the repeated price cuts implemented over the past months are believed to have been Microsoft's ace.

PS4 20th Anniversary Edition preorders begin, sell out in minutes

It was less than a week ago that Sony announced its special edition 20th Anniversary-themed PlayStation 4 console, featuring a gray paint job to match the original PlayStation system and limited to only 12,300 units worldwide.

I’ve watched companies like SEGA and Nintendo rise and fall, I’ve watched Sony take a few missteps, and I’ve watched Microsoft become an important player in today’s marketplace. At the risk of dating myself, I even remember the good ol’ days of Atari rising and falling and an odd device named the 3DO failing to captivate gamers (well, besides me, who still finds time to play it from time to time).

Xbox One won the Black Friday battle says research

Microsoft's Xbox One may be lagging behind the PlayStation 4 when it comes to hitting sales milestones, but the console proved to be the winner when it came to Black Friday demand, with one analysis firm declaring it the clear leader in retail interest.

Destiny now has a Trial, Demo appetizer

Destiny now has a Trial, Demo appetizer

And they can even save their progress and reclaim it if and when they decide to buy the game after all.
