Sadly, it seems Phil Spencer was “kidding” about the Sakaguchi JRPG.

Microsoft Games Studios corporate VP Phil Spencer answered a fair number of questions on Twitter regarding the Xbox One. These ranged from why most Xbox One games didn’t run at 1080p resolution and whether Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi’s next game would be announced for the next gen console.

When asked about the JRPG that Sakaguchi was working on for Xbox One – which a marvelous example of a leading question – Spencer said “Tuesday.” He later clarified that he was only joking about the same. Make of that what you will.

Spencer then stated that though Microsoft would be at GDC 2013, there will be more news as E3 2014 approaches. “I’ll be at GDC but we won’t have a big show, most news will be coming nearer to E3.”

Finally, on being asked whether most games running at 900p on the console was due to the lack of time for developers to optimize for 1080p, he said, “NO, I think you’ll find over this generation games will use a variety of rez and framerates.”

More updates will be incoming, but for now it seems that Microsoft hasn’t conceded defeat in the resolution debate.

    • Dakan45.

      You class yourself as a ‘cool kid’? HAHAHAHAHAHA

    • Psionicinversion

      the cool kids are the PS4 clan… btw the new 800 series nvidia cards have nearly dbl the power of the 7xx series so PS4 is going to get owned by cheap hardware pretty soon 😛

    • Dakan45.

      btw why are you telling me I own a pc! butthurt freak! hahaha

    • Psionicinversion

      cus i dont know which dakan it is

    • Dakan45.

      I’m the ‘grown up’ one who likes to come online and argue with and insult children everyday even though I’m old enough to know better, not quite a perv but defo in the same ball park! butthurt freak

    • Psionicinversion

      ah fair enough hahah i just like coming on to try and p*ss off PS4 ppl cus well theres more of them to have fun with but i bet you alot of them are glory hunters…

      i bet if the situation was reversed theyd all be buying X1’s and be on here saying how cr@p the PS4 is and how rubbish the games look etc, so its fun :d

    • Dakan45.

      Yeah making ourselves feel better by arguing with children is great fun and when somebody proves what we are saying is wrong or biased, we just insult them! HAHAHAHA

    • Psionicinversion

      hey man, were never wrong!!

    • John D

      Have fun finding games to use all that power uniformed PC troll.

    • Psionicinversion

      star citizen…. Boom just bin owned! Ihave never bought the absolute highest end cards cus most games dont need em, this one will I think plus these could be designed specially for pushing 4k. Uses half the watts for the same performance over Kepler, 25% more performance on SMM over SMX, so lower watts less heat means should be able to. Clock the GPU higher, might even be able clock the sharers higher than 2Ghz increasing performance, higher core clocks as standard, over locking potential increased dramatically!! Wonder if AMD has anything up there sleave

    • Broj’swife

      Star citizen looks and sounds boring. Hey let’s get in a ship and travel through empty space. Yaaaaaaay. Also Ps4 could run sc

    • Psionicinversion

      yeah ps4 could run it not that well though ps4 is nearly maxed already its why the order, infamous, wit her 3 all run 30fps, its not a choice its a limitation cus of highly detailed environments andSC is way more detailed than all of those. SC is a niche game its not made to appeal to everyone and you will red 45+ fps in dogfights something the ps4 will not do without lod scaling as iswhats happening on most stuff

  • Buddy Reece

    If your an Xbox fan get a Xbox if u like ps4 get that in my personal opinion I absolutely do not see a difference
