Final Fantasy XIV On 360 Doesn't Look Likely

Final Fantasy XIV is definitely coming to the PS3 and PC, but Square Enix has previously been coy on an Xbox 360 version. There's a reason for that.

While a publisher will rarely, if ever say that a game is definitely not coming to another platform, it doesn't look like Final Fantasy XIV will ever be making an appearance on the Xbox 360, with the game's director not happy with Microsoft's "closed" online system.

"The main reason why we couldn't go with Xbox 360 was the Xbox Live system," Hiromichi Tanaka told Eurogamer. "[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."
