Yoichi Wada, the president of Square-Enix, dropped a huge announcement today, with the revelation that Final Fantasy XIII is coming to the Xbox 360 as well as the PS3. According to Shinji Hashimoto, one of Square's game producers, this was a recent decision by the company, and they are still deciding whether to make it compatible with Xbox Live. Interestingly, this will only be the case outside Japan, with the game remaining a PS3 exclusive there. It's a big loss for Sony, as many people bought a PS3 just for the game, and it has remained one of their biggest exclusives over these past couple of years. Something that should be noted though, is that Final Fantasy Versus XIII will remain a PS3 exclusive, as confirmed by Hashimoto during a question and answer session, the transcript of which can be read here. Square seem to be aiming for a simultaneous launch on both the PS3 and 360 in the U.S, and it makes you wonder how much this will affect the game's development, which has been exclusively on the PS3 so far.
