If Xbox 360 users are looking for someone to blame for the stagnant development of Square Enix’s MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV Online for the 360, kindly address your concerns to Microsoft.
Square Enix producer Hiromichi Tanaka explained the issue to VG247 at GamesCom, saying, “Because 360 has its own policy with Xbox Live that is different from [the] internet, that’s something we’re in discussions with Microsoft [about], to come to an agreement.”
Tanaka went on to say that this policy dispute is one of the primary reasons why the game hasn’t been announced for the 360, and why it will only be launching on the PlayStation 3 and PC next year. While this is certainly sad news for 360 owners who are really looking forward to the game, it’s a nice change of pace to hear about Microsoft’s console holding up development of a game for a change.
Don’t you agree?
