Final Fantasy Versus XIII still not in full production

C'mon! Why tease us with games you've barely started working on yet? This whole time we've been hearing about Final Fantasy Versus XIII could be counted as one long tease if you consider that the team at Square Enix hasn't even started full production yet. Seriously? What's the hold up?Check out what Producer Tetsuya Nomura says in the latest issue of Famitsu (translation via Andriasang): 

"Since we’re still taking on so many new development challenges, the team is still made up of the core members," he said. "Right now, we’re making preparations to go into full production."

We have yet to see anything in the way of demos or gameplay footage. A few dim screens are all we've seen, really. 

It does sound like things are ramping up a bit. When they do finally start full production, it sounds like Nomura has big plans for the game. For example, all the cutscenes are said to be controllable. He teases that he's trying something completely new for this aspect of the game.

Timing for a reveal of new details has been set, but he didn't pass dates along to Famitsu. Soon, I hope. Maybe Tokyo Game Show?
