The store page updating might not be indicative of anything, but that doesn’t mean Final Fantasy XVI is forbidden from today’s State of Play. Square Enix has said that the game is ready to be shown — a full trailer is apparently primed. The timing would certainly add up if it does appear tonight, especially since Sony has promised third party content. But again, don’t take this PS Store adjustment as confirmation — it just doesn’t work like that. As always, we’d recommend tempering your expectations (and then if it does actually happen, you can act surprised).
The PlayStation Store website for Final Fantasy XVI has just been updated, which is the biggest story being spread around the web ahead of Sony’s State of Play tonight. Gasp! The implication being that we’ll be getting a much-needed RPG update during the show. Some folks are already sure it’s going to happen, but we’re here to p*ss on the parade, as is customary. The basic line is that a PS Store page refresh doesn’t and never has meant anything. This exact identical scenario occurred last year, when numerous pages were reloaded prior of a State of Play broadcast (funnily enough, including Final Fantasy XVI!). It didn’t work out.
