    Final Fantasy XIII no longer exclusive?

    I hate being part of the rumor mill, but it seems FFXIII may no longer be a PS3 exclusive. I am not certain on the validity of this article, so I hope some one may be able to confirm or deny this claim.

    http://www.ps3center.net/story-394.html

    I have not come across any official statements on the loss of exclusivity or which of the three titles in the FFXIII project will be ported to other systems. So the probability of this being just a rumor is very high.

    I would like to keep this thread PS3 hate-free, but feel free to discuss further news/rumors on which of the console/handhelds may be getting the FF series and the effects, if any, that it may have on the PS3.

    Yea, there's gonna be 6 Final Fantasy Fabula Nova Crystallis', there's Final Fantasy XIII and Versus for Ps3, Agito for Mobile, Haeresis is unconfirmed, and the other's haven't been revealed yet. I heard something about Dissidia though, but it might just be a new game Square-enix will be making.

    well thats pretty big news, and if it were true, you would think it would be all over the place and on every major gaming website.

    But its not. So that leaves only rumor. The article also says ff13 will appear on the wii... i love my wii but theres no way in hell ff13 would be able to run on it. The author is basically saying it will appear on every system out there, and thats just not true.

    SO i would hold off on any sort of assumptions till real official announcements are made, IF they are made.

    However, square enix does plan on bringing the final fantasy franchise to many consoles, but i dont believe its FF13. Nintendo has their crystal chronicals for example. Its a franchise within a franchise, which is what i see square doing. They are finally getting over the nintendo betrayal way back in the day.

    He really doesn't.

    I'm guessing if any form of FFXIII comes to the 360 it'll be the most likely second rate Versus game, which would be hardly a loss to Sony. IMO it's kind of like Dirge of Cerebus going to the Xbox, big deal it's no FF7.

    Celestial-
    Thanks for the correction on the # of titles.

    Shift-
    I don't really have the time to check a lot of gaming news. I came across this article which sparked my interest and drew some doubts (hence the question mark in the title). But I reworded my original post to encompass the likelihood of this being just a rumor. However, after visiting the official Square-Enix website I was a bit confused by their vague description of the FFXIII project:

    "An all new project comprising of multiple titles spanning multiple systems including the PLAYSTATION®3 system and mobile phones."

    http://na.square-enix.com/e306/titles/fabula/

    Also, in an interview from last month a Sony executive hints at the possibility of FFXIII no longer being exclusive to the PS3.

    http://uk.gamespot.com/news/6167864.html

    Has anything else been said about this?

    Anyways, there doesn't appear to be any official word on whether FFXIII will not be a PS3 exclusive, but some of the other titles in the project may appear on other consoles.

    I bet they lose 50% of them by the time they get released
    What I meant to say is that FFXIII is the BIG ONE. Like FF has really been for Sony only. This really is bad news for Sony

    ... dude, FF games have been on other systems for a long time. Even though square left nintendo after the whole nintendo-phillips incident, they still had FF games appear on nintendo systems. You know these as FF crystal chronicals, which were first seen on the game boy.

    But FF is not the only big game. Theres a lot of games coming to the PS3 old and new franchises, some exclusive some not. Just check up on the list of exclusives, you will be suprised. Also wait till e3 07, your gonna be in for more suprises.

    You are overexagerating a bit much though dont you think.
