The surprise console news around Final Fantasy XIII was that it would be available on the Xbox 360. This isn’t the case in Japan, where it remains a PS3 exclusive but if you read some Japanese blogs shops can’t even give away the Xbox 360 any more.
There are reports that the PS3 is a far better machine for running Final Fantasy XIII on than the Xbox 360 but that’s hardly surprising. The game will have been converted across.
So, what about Final Fantasy XIV?
LIghting Lead for Square Enix, Yuuki Akama, is in the unfortunate position of having confirmed Final Fantasy XIV for the Xbox 360. It’s all the fault of a LinkedIn Profile.
As if to confirm just how serious the “leak” is Akama has had LinkedIn nuke the offending profile.
Oops! The dangers of this modern social media world. Reminds of the news from Mashable today that most companies don’t have a social media policy. I bet Square-Enix will have one shortly and be sure to ban staff from writing about pre-production or pre-release games.
