Square Enix Doesn't See PS3 Price Cut Impact This Year

......but the company sees a big impact next year. When does Final Fantasy XIII come out again? Oh right, this winter.

According to Square Enix honcho Yoichi Wada, the cheaper US$299 PS3 will spur game sales, but not enough for the company to revise this year's financial forecast.

"In terms of the impact (the PS3 cut) will have on this financial year's earnings, I don't think there will be a major difference," explained Wada. "But I expect there to be a big impact from next year."

Next year being when Final Fantasy XIII is released exclusively on the PS3 in Japan?
