I haven't seen posted yet, so I'll post it here:
"What do Uncharted and Final Fantasy have in common? Not much at the moment, but that may be changing according to Final Fantasy XIII director Motomu Toriyama.
Speaking at GDC last night, Toriyama talked extensively about the recently released Final Fantasy XIII and the differences between Western and Easter game design theory. Looking back at Final Fantasy XIII, Toriyama noted that player interaction was limited almost exclusively to battle sequences. In future Final Fantasy titles, the Japanese developer is looking to involve the player more in cutscenes, adding another layer of interactivity.
His model for this, Toriyama said, was Uncharted 2. He was inspired by the way Naughty Dog involved players in action sequences that would normally be relegated to cut scenes in a traditional Final Fantasy game.
”I think there will be more interactivity (in future Final Fantasy cut scenes) — if you have 1000 flying dragons, hopping from one dragon to the other would be great fun," said Toryiama.“If you can achieve that compared with Uncharted 2, I think that Final Fantasy is going to replicate the masterpieces of film, and that is certainly one of our goals.”
Final Fantasy XIII went on sale earlier this week, on March 9."
These seems interesting. I wonder if Versus is going to have interactive cutscenes...
