Square Enix launches video Podcast site

"Square Enix Promotion Video" will offer free promotional trailers for viewing on iPods and other devices.

by

TOKYO--Square Enix has launched a new Japanese site named Square Enix Promotion Video. As the site's name may somewhat hint, it will function as a video podcast distribution area where visitors can check out promotional trailers of Square Enix's various games. The site currently features only a trailer of Front Mission 5: Scars of War, but it will be updated multiple times each month with new trailers.

Don't know how you can say Squeenix is slipping, they just sold 400k copies of a basically unkown franchise (considering the Dragon Warrior years). I also don't know why you say they wouldn't pass on live, they only have one MMO, and its already going 360. I say they are really excited by HD, but aren't going to be too willing to return to the four-disk era of FFVIII. Blu-ray storage capacity, 1080p, and a huge fanatic installed fan base that already pays extra for their games? They really have no use for 360.

FF13 and DQ9 multi platform how 360 will handle the space if only can handle up to dvd-9

i dont think Square-enix will be that silly to pass out on the live side of 360 as thats where gaming is going now....

i dont think square is goign to support the 360 much at all. i really dont see sony and nintendo being bumped from their one and two spots anytime soon in japan... or in the world respectivly for that matter... but there are those people who think only america matters...

with the lack luster sales of the 360 in japan, i doubt any major square-enix titles will be announced for the 360 anytime soon.

hope they make an english version, I just downloaded the trailer and am putting it on my iPod now. Oh and for people that think Square is gonna really support the 360, remember the gamecube? Do you really think Crystal Chronicles was support? Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest are their two best selling franchises and even if they put them on both consoles only the PS3 version would really sell in Japan so they most likely won't bother also it takes them long enough to get a game out for only one system (KHII, FFXII, etc.) I'd hate to think how long it would take them to get FFXIII and DQIX out if they made them multiplatform (hopefully this decade but who knows)

Pretty sure Kojima wants to keep his 4 million-plus Playstation 2 sales...so I don't think he's as 360-keen as you might think. I'm dying for Square-Enix's new releases. Just hurry up!

Did you guys watch the video...its for Front Mission 5 and it looks sweet. Only hope it doesn't take 6 months to get to America from Japan.

They will announce that the next final fantasy and dragon quest installments will be coming to both the 360 and the ps3 at e3. Basically sony isn't able to hold on to all of their exclusives even metal gear solid 4 would've been on the 360 if the rumble roses team didn't get a 360 dev kit before kojima did.
