'Final Fantasy XIII' To Be English-Only On Xbox 360?

'Final Fantasy XIII' To Be English-Only On Xbox 360?

Finally. A story that absolutely no one will have opinion about.

In an interview with the folks over at IGN UK, Square Enix hotshots Yoshinori Kitase and Takeshi Arakawa revealed that the Xbox 360 version of Final Fantasy XIII will most likely be English-only, and therefore won't include a Japanese voice track. But before you PlayStation 3 owners start laughing heartedly at your 360 counterparts, its looking like English-only for you as well.

As Kitase points out, the 360s lack of Blu-ray makes it impossible to include the extra voice track, and Square Enix continues to promote platform equality in terms of their production model, even though the company has clearly stated that the 360 is preventing it from doing a few things it would like to have done with the game (i.e. release a Blu-ray version of the demo outside of Japan).

Then again, Kitase seemed genuinely perplexed when he asked, "Are there many people who would like to play with Japanese voices?"

So whether the 360s limitations will result in anything significantly negative and/or damaging to FFXIII's overall game experience when the title finally arrives stateside is entirely speculative at this point. In the meantime, stories like this one will only serve to fuel fan flames, even if PS3 fans could care less about whatever compromises are made on account of the 360.

How many PS3 fans are genuinely upset about a possible English-only version of FFXIII? Honestly.
