FINAL FANTASY XIII is no longer going to be a Sony PS3 exclusive game according to producer Yoshinori Kitase.
Kitase said that he wants to bring the game to Microsoft's Xbox 360 as an effort to “bring as much fun to as many people as possible.”
The game was famously one of the reasons for buying a Playstation, but Kitase said that the exclusivity deal needed to be dropped due to “market situation for the Xbox 360 in the U.S. and Europe.
In otherwords the PS3 is not doing as well in the US and Europe as it used to and is losing ground to the Xbox360 and Nintendo's Wii.
Kitase said that the game was too early in development to reveal a release date, although the Japanese PS3 version will first out of the starting block and then this will be localised for North America and Europe.
Straight afterwards, work will begin on the Xbox 360 version. µ
