Square’s latest move…

So yeah, it has been recently announced that Final Fantasy XIII will be released on the Xbox 360! (WHAT!) But wait, it will still be released on the PS3 (phew…). If you didn’t notice yet, I just don’t like Xbox. I don’t like the kind of games that they have, but it seems like everyone is moving to it… I just don’t like Microsoft in the gaming industry. I guess I don’t really have a reason, but that’s just the way it is (I know that’s stupid, but too bad).
Even though FFXII will be released for the PS3 and the 360, it is going to be a major blow to Sony. This was one of their biggest franchises that they had exclusiveness on. I, like many people, had planned to buy a PS3 for this game (and for other Square games), but as the comments I have seen for the video on Youtube, everyone’s saying that they don’t have to buy a PS3 anymore. I will still buy a PS3 because I just don’t like Xbox, but if more Square games are moving, I may have no choice… I guess another reason why I don’t like Xbox/Microsoft is because they’re taking everything. This is what the Microsoft representative (didn’t catch the name) said in that video:

Final Fantasy joins a long list of former Playstation franchises that are finding a new home on Xbox 360. It happened with Madden and Guitar Hero, it’s happening now with Grand Theft Auto and Resident Evil, and it will happen with Final Fantasy.

I don’t like that cocky attitude, even if it comes true. Poor Sony… But somehow, I think Sony will come back even stronger in the long run. I think that although the PS3 isn’t as big right now, it will last longer and stay for at least another generation. At least, I hope…
