No Final Fantasy XIV on the 360, LIVE too “Closed”

Posted By | On 26th, Jun. 2010

Sqaure Enix recently confirmed that Final Fantasy XIV will remain an exclusive to the PS3, and blamed the decision on Microsoft’s ‘closed’ infrastructure. Apparently, Xbox LIVE, Micrsoft’s online service, is too ‘closed’ for the upcoming MMO, so Final Fantasy XIV is going to remain an exclusive to the PS3 for conoles- yet.

“The main reason why we couldn’t go with Xbox 360 was the Xbox Live system,” explained game director Hiromichi Tanaka. “[Live is] different to the normal internet environment, so when we wanted to introduce this game in the same environment as Windows PC it had to be PS3, so that was our choice.

“Microsoft has a different point of view: they want to have a closed environment for Xbox Live. We’re still talking to… We couldn’t come to an agreement on Xbox Live.”

Pfft, typical Micrsosft, messing things up and losing out on big marketshares…

Final Fantasy XIV is due for release on the PS3 and PC.
