For years Sony’s PlayStation consoles were the preference for Square Enix’s Final Fantasy titles, well times change and now other platforms like the Xbox 360 get a piece of the action – but will Final Fantasy Versus XIII come to Microsoft’s console?
Currently we are under the impression that Final Fantasy Versus XIII is going to be a PlayStation 3 exclusive, but these days exclusivity doesn’t count for much and we wonder whether this game could also come to Xbox 360, one recent post over at OXM.com seems to suggest that it is more than likely.
OSM’s Edwin Evans-Thirlwell listed six reasons why Final Fantasy Versus XIII is coming to Xbox 360, here is a quick summary of what he had to say. Firstly as recently pointed out by Kotaku the Versus team recently posted job listings where they asked for Xbox 360 development experience. Also it has been pointed out that the game’s engine, Crystal Tools, is a multi-platform engine.
Three other reasons all revolve around money, firstly bringing one game to multiple platforms almost guarantees higher sales, in-turn more downloadable-content will sell. One other thing which points towards a 360 release is the fact that Sony won’t pay to keep the game exclusive, these days Sony and Microsoft have to put up big bucks to ensure their rivals don’t get certain games – we can’t see Sony doing this.
You can see one final reason why Final Fantasy Versus XIII should come to Xbox 360 via the OXM link in this post’s second paragraph – do you think this game will be a PS3 exclusive?
