    ps3 Wada statement baffles FFXIII devs

    via Computer and Video Games

    It seems not even Final Fantasy XIII producer, Yoshinori Kitase, and director, Motomu Toriyama know what Square boss Yoichi Wada meant when he said the firm may cease to create "this type of game".

    Wada told Edge last month: "But whether we are going to continue to internally create this type of game remains to be seen, because I actually feel that the team that was involved with Final Fantasy XIII should next move on to create and generate some 'next generation' forms of play."

    The PS Blog asked Kitase and Toriyama to clarify what he meant, to which they said: "We don't know exactly what he meant by that. We don't really know what he meant by this style of game."

    "If you consider that during Final Fantasy XIII's development, at peak time the team consisted of over 300 people. It was a huge team, plus it took a several long years to get the game finished. So, if Mr Wada meant that we would never make another Final Fantasy title with the similar number of people, taking as long as FFXIII did, we would agree.

    "Obviously in the future we want to be much more efficient ... In the future our teams will be smaller and more effectively run. We suspect that is what Mr Wada meant by his statement."
    The Official PlayStation magazine gave Square's RPG stunner a 9/10 score. Sweet. PSM3 wasn't quite as impressed. Can't win 'em all, huh?

    Why don't they just ask him to clarify what he meant?

    Seriously wonder whats wrong with people sometimes.

    "Oh, he said this, but this is what he meant" looks stupid, imo
