Do you remember back at E3 last year, when Sony’s Jack Tretton casually announced – and lead the world to believe that Final Fantasy XIV would be a PS3 exclusive? Looks like his meticulous choice of words was for a reason.
â€œAnd PlayStation 3 will be the only console you’ll be able to play Final Fantasy XIV on, when it launches in 2010.â€ Sneaky bastard.
If a linked-in CV belonging to a Square Enix employee is to believed, the game will be headed to the 360 as well – and Jack Tretton’s announcement was one of timed exclusivity – something pretty much everyone expected right from the beginning.
The game has thus far only been announced for PC and PS3 – and the CV could well be wrong. Microsoft have always been bureaucratically at loggerheads with developers who wish to bring their MMO’s to the Xbox 360 – but perhaps the headway made by Capcom in porting Monster Hunter has opened the doors to subscription-based games for the system.
PS3 fans should still take gratification that Final Fantasy Versus XIII is exclusive to their platform of choice. It would nice though if Square-Enix weren’t so reticent about VS, and gave us a little more than what we already know – which is next to nothing.

Howdy…Not sure where you got the idea that FF13 was PS3 exclusive, but the Xbox360 version has already been anounced and will be available at the same time as the PS3 version? I will refrain from mentioning any other websites here (Because lazyGamer rocks), but I am sure you guys can find out a little info on this if you try…
