hhhmmmmmmmmm... It is a RUMOR. But I thought it was interesting.


Speaking in an interview in French newspaper Dernières Nouvelles d'Alsace, SCEE Vice President Georges Fornay said the following: "Enfin, pour Final Fantasy XIII, je peux vous dire que l'exclusivité est en discussion."

Google Translate and Kotaku both translate that as: "Lastly, for Final Fantasy XIII, I can say to you that exclusiveness is under discussion." Now that's not a nice thing to say, especially since talk about Devil May Cry 4 and Metal Gear Solid 4's chances of showing up for Microsoft's Xbox 360 console is still rampant.http://xbox360.qj.net/Rumour-FFXIII-exclusivity-also-in-contention-/pg/49/aid/86955

Wow, I would absolutely love to see XIII and XIII-versus on my 360. It'd save me from having to buy a PS3.

If the DMC news was bad for Sony fans, it won't get better anytime soon, IMHO. :D

Why is Sony just sitting back and letting all this happen? Are they really that cash-strapped they can't pay for a few exclusives? Actually, given the losses on the PS3, the loans they've taken out, they might be.

I've heard quite a few titles arent going to be released on the PS3. Alot of software companies have been shying away from Sony's new system.

I couldn't careless about DMC or even FF, but if MGS goes cross platform, especially at launch, that would be a huge blow.

By the time its all said and done there will probably only be a handful of exclusives for each.

360 - Forza, Halo

PS3 - Gran Turismo, Socom, God of War

If Miscrosoft does end up buying Bioware, then Mass Effect will be 1st party too.

Hironobu Sakaguchi believes Xbox 360 release could lead to continued success for the franchise

We've all been waiting patiently for an announcement of a European release of Blue Dragon. Whilst we're none the wiser on that subject bar a speculative estimate of Christmas, Hironobu Sakaguchi has thrown his oar into the Final Fantasy debate.

Last years Square Enix conference at E3 was a complete tease when it came to Final Fantasy, with each trailer showing the game and inserting a pause just before announcing its home format. Each time the words PlayStation 3 appeared, the Japanese press went wild. The English speaking world, however, were a little disappointed. It seems the creator of the only game to seriously shift Xbox 360's in Japan so far has leant his voice to the debate recently in an interview with gamespot.

"I feel that the Final Fantasy series should come to Xbox 360 as well. This is wise. It makes so much sense to me...it has so much potential in North America and in Europe. So there's a great chance for the series to succeed on 360 as well."

Having created the series originally, we don't take Sakaguchi-san's words lightly, and hopefully, neither do Sqaure Enix. With more good news, he let slip that the 'White Engine' upon which Final Fantasy XIII is built is an open platform engine. While it sounds technical, all this means is the engine runs independent of the hardware, making a port to the Xbox 360 and easy job, and something we'll be praying for at every given opportunity.

Nothing crazy about it, thats my opinion. I'm not saying thats the standard opinion, just mine.

On a global scale, I'd have to agree with Phin that FF is a much bigger series than MGS.

I would agree with that too. Maybe, I should have worded my original post different. :goof:

Why would Tekken be cross platform because of DMC?... And this is all rumors and speculation at the moment anyway.

They haven't even made either multi-platform yet.

Well... I've never EVER seen Final Fantasy make a console switch... or even be a cross platform title. This would be a first for Square.

Metal Gear Solid 2 was on PS2 and Xbox, so Konami has done it with the series. Granted, it came out much later on Xbox than the initial launch... AND they did plan (originally) to port MGS3 to Xbox also. But Kojima decided to direct his attention to MGS4 instead of porting 3.

I'd think that there's a better chance that MGS is cross platform than FF.

The first 6 Final Fantasy games were on Nintendo systems.

Also, it's inevitable that Metal Gear Solid 4 will be an Xbox 360 title.

The only reason I'd get a PS3 is because it would have final fantasy. If it comes out for the 360....I'm going to get a 360 and not a PS3.

FF > All

I know, and they never ended up on the Genesis. I guess if you count re-releases on PS1, then yes... They're multiplatform. But during a game's life cycle, Square dosn't really release on muliple platforms.

Oh, ok, gotcha. I misinterpreted what you were saying.

I do think Sony will be able to hang on to Final Fantasy XIII exclusivity.

This would change my paradigm since one of the main reasons for PS3 minus the other ones like blu ray and thinking it is more future proof was Final Fantasy XIII. The only reason I bought a ps1 was Final Fantasy VII. Main reason I bought PS2 was Final Fantasy X (thank god for all of the really really awesome games and I probably would of bought one in the future since I do have an Xbox).

Sony should of bought up Square when it had the chance.

Nintendo selling the rights to Sony is probably one of the biggest mistakes they ever made. But however, pretty good for the franchise, because Sony had the technology and capability to make the series better. If Nintendo was still doing FF it wouldn't be as good.

Wow, lots of FF fans in here huh. I could never get into it, although to be honest I probably didn't give it a fair shot. Might have to look into that.
