    In an interview with Reuters Square Enix CEO Yoichi Wada said overseas launches of the latest Final Fantasy game will come in April 2010 or later. Meanwhile Japan is on track to get Final Fantasy XIII and a playable demo in 2009.

    "However, we don’t know when in 2009 Japan will see Final Fantasy XIII in stores. They might be playing Final Fantasy XIII in June or they might not. Probably not. Japan may have to wait until November or December 2009, which means an English version of Final Fantasy XIII could be right around the corner in summer 2010 given Square Enix’s usual six month localization gap for big releases. From a strictly business standpoint it seems like Square Enix wants to book the profits from Final Fantasy XIII in Japan in one fiscal year and worldwide sales in another."

    First!

    2010 might be the year for FFXIII and that's only for the PS3.

    Now I wonder when will SE start work on the 360 version after reading about this

    The PS3 is a region free system so I can just import too bad the 360 is not.

    my guess is the 360 version may not be released until it is released in the USA, given how great Japanese xbox sales are....

    don't sony part own SE though? seems insane for them to allow a xb port
