Was the Final Fantasy XV Platinum Demo Running on PC at Uncovered Event?

Tons of articles have been written about the possible PC version of Final Fantasy XV but so far Square Enix has only said that they will look into it later down the line. However, something really intriguing might have happened at the recent Uncovered event where they ran the Final Fantasy XV Platinum Demo.

The developers might have actually been running the game’s demo on a PC during the livestream.

Don’t believe us? Well, here’s what happened. During the livestream of the demo, we saw developers playing the game but anyone hardly noticed the controllers they were using for it, if you take a closer look, you will see that they are controllers exclusive to PC platform.

This image gives us a look at the controller that was used while they played the game. As you can see, it is clearly not a DualShock 4. There are visible differences between this controller and the one that comes with a PS4.

People might say that it looks similar to an Xbox controller but if you click on the image and open it in a new tab, you will see that it is not.

Instead, it is a Logitech Gamepad F310 which you can see and compare with in the image below.

Now we are not saying that an in-development game having a PC build necessitates that it will get a PC release, because most of the games have them for development purposes even if they are only going to come out on consoles.

However, having a PC version of the game and running the Final Fantasy XV Platinum Demo on PC as well is a different story since the demo is supposed to show us the “final visuals.” This means that the PC built is the latest version of the game itself.

Having a PC build this late does suggest that they might have more solid plans of a PC release of the game than they are telling us. Which, of course, is something strengthened by the GameStop ad that listed Xbox One, PS4 and PC as the release platforms of the game.

Thanks, DSOGaming.
