Even Microsoft Doesn’t Want Final Fantasy XIV

Massively multiplayer rat-bashing grind Final Fantasy XIV will not be appearing on the Xbox 360 “because Microsoft doesn’t want it,” says Square Enix.

Producer Hiromichi Tanaka reportedly explained that although Microsoft allowed the preceding Final Fantasy XI to be launched on the infant Xbox Live service, it wanted nothing to do with Square Enix over the release of Final Fantasy XIV.

The previous month he claimed the reason there would be no Xbox 360 version was because Xbox Live was too “closed” – it appears keeping a story straight is not amongst his strongpoints, for in the same month he also claimed the PC and PS3 versions would be nearly identical, only to announce a delay shortly after based on difficulty getting the PS3 port working satisfactorily.
