After the exclusivity saga involving Final Fantasy XIII, gamers shouldn’t be too suprised to hear fresh rumors that Final Fantasy Versus XIII will be appearing on the Xbox 360, despite initial perception that it would be a PS3 exclusive.
Considering that Square-Enix made the bold step in bringing FFXIII to Microsoft’s console, would you be surprised to see them do it again with FFVXIII?
It seems like a lot of respect has gone out the window after what Square-Enix did to Final Fantasy XIII, from a PS3 owner’s perspective anyway, considering that all previous titles were on the PlayStation in the SquareSoft days.
If Square-Enix were to finally step up and announce Final Fantasy Versus for the Xbox 360, we don’t think there would be too much of a reaction after what happened with Final Fantasy XIII. Lead Designer Tetsuya Nomura has already said that the game would be developed specifically for the PS3, so there shouldn’t be any complaints of the game being ‘weakened’ in order to comply with the Xbox 360 hardware.
Square-Enix console exclusives used to mean a lot more special a few years ago, but not now since they have opened their arms to multiplatform. Because of this, you have to wonder if Square-Enix has lost a fair portion of their once-die hard fan base.
As a PS3 owner, would you be upset if the game came to Xbox 360, or have you stopped caring after FFXIII? – Give us your thoughts on this.
