Final Fantasy on PS3 and Xbox 360 Details
Reports are coming out stating that Square could be working on a brand new Final Fantasy MMO which could be multiplatform meaning that it would be not only on the PlayStation 3, but also the Xbox 360 and the PC as well.
This news comes from an interview with Sage Sundai, the Global Online Producer of Square. He stated that the next Final Fantasy from Square Enix would likely be on other consoles besides the PS3.
"FFXI is a cross-platform online game so you can play from the Xbox 360 or PS2 in and also Windows. So for our next MMO, we’ll also consider this cross platform feature. Regardless of the platform they’re playing on, for online games, it might be pure content which attracts the player."
The news comes from gamersquad and follows many past rumors which have stated that Final Fantasy XIII would no longer be exclusive to the PlayStation 3 as reported right here at PCN a few days ago. Only time will tell what is going to happen but it seems that Sony fans will continue to be displeased by this news as Final Fantasy as a series is going to be enjoyed from here on out by a lot more than just PlayStation fans.

In news that is sure to rock the gaming world it has been confirmed that Final Fantasy XIII, the blockbuster RPG highly anticipated by millions of fans of the series, will not be an exclusive game for the PlayStation 3 console.
The Final Fantasy XIII project as of right now consists of two games for the PlayStation 3 as well as a mobile game. Motomu Toriyama of Square Enix has come out and made the confirmation that other consoles will be receiving Final Fantasy XIII on top of the PlayStation 3.
This is pretty big news and could lead to speculation as to which Final Fantasy XIII games are going where. The obvious rumors are going to be that FFXIII is heading to the Xbox 360 as well as the PlayStation 3.
This quote though could also mean that the series could be heading to the Nintendo DS handheld and or the Nintendo WII as well since Square Enix has been very impressed and pleased with the progression and installed user base of the Wii, with the DS already receiving the Final Fantasy treatment a few times.
Let the rumors begin. Either way though the fact that Final Fantasy XIII will not be a PS3-exclusive has to make any Sony fan cringe in their gaming chairs.
