Square Enix Delivers Massive Blow To Sony At E3
THX-1138
Just in case you don't know, at E3 Square Enix have just revealed that the Playstation 3 exclusive Final Fantasy XIII is going multi platform and will be coming out on the Xbox 360. This is a huge blow for Sony, the fact that Final Fantasy was still exclusive was one of the few aces they still had up their sleeves.

this is realy bad for Sony:( biggest shock at E3 so far

Wow, it's not like we couldn't see this coming but it still manages to shock regardless. The higher ups in Sony must be in frenzy right now.

I honestly don't see the major deal with this. Then again, I am perhaps Squeenix's most venomous detractor. :|
"Well, that's that! The exit's that way!"

Hideo Kojima is among the last remaining loyalists to Sony exclusive releases now that the Housers have sold their souls to Microsoft. Can't wait to see a 4-disc FF XIII for 360, ugh..
Long long ago, there were a man..
 
Raiken
I don't care either way. I'll still buy it for the PS3. At some point I'm going to own all three consoles anyway. Only thing I'm missing now is a 360.

Eggy

I understand you love Nintendo and you hate Squeenix so Sony being hurt isn't really an issue for you, but that is the issue. This is a pretty low blow from Square. Even if it was for their "survival" had they failed they could've been gobbled up by ANOTHER company and they'd just be spirits within that one.

I'll stick with my Diet Pepsi-I mean, PS2.

At least it is true, that man has no control, even over his own will."

I think it's a damn shame that any console releases are exclusive. (well, it's obviously forgivable in Nintendo's case) It's kinda humorous to me that so many Sony fans are disgusted that they won't be able to hog up all the Square-Enix fun for themselves.

It isn't as if this new FF game wouldn't have remained exclusive (which it will in Japan apparently) if Sony would have bribed Square-Enix enough. It's just all about corporations doing they think is most helpful to making them the most profit.

I think the biggest travesty we've seen this E3 is a Ubisoft developer in an interview about the new "Prince of Persia" game speaking about how "we've progressed past the Game Over screen"

well, its not totally unprecedented is it? i mean both final fantasy vii & vii were released on the pc and i think ix was planned but canned at the last minute (although if anyone can tell me why, i'd love to know) ff xi kind of speaks for itself. so really the only sony "exclusives" were ff xi, x, & xii.

while i'll admit i bought the psone and ps2 to play the final fantasys, its jolly nice to know there's no need to now, even more so with hironobu sakaguichi developing rpgs on the x-box these days..

Companies always go to where the profit is. I, of course, am not dismayed by this news and I am, in fact, overjoyed since I have a 360 instead of a PS3 Pfft

Sony lost nearly $3 billion dollars (or was it more than $3 billion dollars?) in their PS3 since launch, and looks like it'll take a very long time for them to recoup the losses, if they ever will recover from it.

The Playstation brand has been operated like a cartel since it's invention, buying up major titles to ensure console sales. Frankly, I think what $ony have been doing all these years is criminal and I'm glad developers have started giving them the finger.

Multi-platform releases can only be a good thing for all of us.

Nintendo were even worse in the NES/SNES days.

Too true.

What's making me laugh is all the really bad Sony fanboys that are almost literally crying over this and screaming about how "those Microsoft bastards are stealing all our games!!!". Jeez... so long as you can get the game on your system, who gives a crap? Reading posts I've seen on forums it feels like it's the SNES/Mega Drive era again and we're all stood in the school playground! LOL

I think it's great news that it's coming for the 360, although I might have a PS3 by then so it won't matter and I'll but it for whatever system it's best on. I wonder how much M$ paid Square? Also, I wonder how they will get around the whole issue of storage space though, will they be able to fit the game on one 360 disc?
