Square Enix Gonna Make Games For Everyone, Everything

Illustration for article titled Square Enix Gonna Make Games For Everyone, Everything

When Final Fantasy XIII was announced for the 360, it was hard to miss the high-pitched scream that went out across the internet. Mostly from Sony fanboys, aghast at the thought of a Final Fantasy game appearing somewhere other than a PlayStation. Which was good for a giggle, what with Final Fantasies I-VI on Nintendo machines, Final Fantasy VII & VIII going to the PC, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles going to GameCube and Final Fantasy XI going to every machine known to man. Not like there wasn't a precedent, people.

So rational, normal humans shouldn't have as much trouble digesting these words from Squeenix boss Yoichi Wada, who knows which way the current generation's winds are blowing:

We're now in the age of the multi-platform, but depending on age and territory, users have different tastes. Therefore it's very difficult to just deal with one company or one hardware platform - in order to offer our product to the vast majority of gamers we need to deal with multiple companies and platforms.

In other words, when Final Fantasy XIV is announced for PSP & iPhone, try to keep your squealing to a minimum, OK?

@DigitalHero: Agreed. There will always be a better version on a particular console, like you stated, the overall game may not be different.

This is what is important and generally what Im trying to get at. The overall game of GTAIV seems complete, and is practically identical on both systems. Just saying that the PS3 isn't this unstoppable beast that is always hampered by the whittle grandmother 360, Lol.

They are both powerful machines and sacrificed don't always have to happen because of the other console. There was a point when M$ had the strongest power under the hood of their console, I was not on Kotaku at that time but was the responses the same as some of the responses are now?
