Being the Gamer Chick that I am - I have been watching the live coverage of E3. Today, we had the official Press Conference for Microsoft, and among all the rather inane information was the official announcement from Square Enix (and it explains why FF XIII isn't on the planned press information for Sony):

Final Fantasy XIII for PlayStation 3 ONLY in Japan - it's coming to XBox 360 in the US.

Among the beauty of the game (and all the crying that went with just how shiny it is), I am feeling a sense of betrayal by Square today. They still haven't mentioned the co-release game FF XIII Verses, so I suppose I can hold out hope for that being on PS3.

I mean, I HAVE an XBox 360... but... but... Final Fantasy is so intrinsic to PlayStation, it is hard not to feel some sort of sadness right now.

On the up side, tomorrow is the Sony press conference, and I am going to continue to hold out hope that the reason they let FF XIII go, is because they brokered a deal to get FF VII made for the PS3.

I will keep you all posted!

Unfortunately, there is nothing I can say that is going to make the FF PS3 exclusive fans happy. As I hate FF, I couldn't care less about FF being available to me. What this does tell me, and should tell everyone, is that Sony is in deep shit. GTA jumped the exclusive barrier, and others have as well. Sales of teh PS3 are shit, and for good reason. Is this the end of Sony?

/sigh

Well, to be honest only thing I'm disappointed about is the fact that they didn't tell us sooner. I had thought that Sony would keep FFXIII PS3 exclusive no matter what, but now it seems the only reason I bought a PS3 was for MGS4. I mean it's a good game but quite pricey. Had I known this little sooner I'd have gone with an xbox, it seems to get most of the jrpg's anyway.

Like somebody said it's not so odd that SE switched "sides".. I mean, they did that with FFVII already and slapped nintendo to the face. It's all business anyway..

I'm pretty sure Sonys press conference today will reveal some cool titles however if they don't have at Least info about vs. XIII, KH3, and the new star ocean/infinite undiscovery coming to PS3 I can't help but change to xbox. Worst case is only KH3 will be ps3 exclusive so I'll be screwed either way (I can only afford one console). It's too bad though, I like ps's pad over xbox's ;;. And I might get the three rings of death or what do they call it. Oh well.
