    Not that I really care, I wouldn't buy it anyway. But odds are if it does well on the PS3 they'll jump through a few hoops for a Xbox 360 version.

    I hope it comes out for the 360. I really want it.

    While I was a bit peeved about FFXIII being ported and 'dumbed down' because of the 360, I'll admit I'm happy about this. It'll mean more players online, huzzah!

    I really couldn't care less if it came to 360 or not. I didn't like XIII and I probably won't like this either.

    There is a HUGE difference between these 2 games.

    Games are expensive enough as it is without having to pay monthly. I'll pass.

    It wasn't really dumbed down. In fact, it was lucky it came to the system at all. It's a massive game in size. It's the second Xbox 360 game to use 4 discs (the first being Lost Odyssey). If anything we should be thankful. And the Xbox 360 version just had some bugs and the graphics weren't as good (considering the PS3 does have better graphics for most multiconsole games this should be no surprise), otherwise it was fine. Just sayin'.

    The title is misleading, it has NEVER been announced for 360, only SquEni said they'd probably wouldn't due to closed LIVE structure. The title makes it sound as if it was announced.

    Rofl Squinei.

    I have a PS3, and if I have the money, I'm gonna get it. I'm an avid Final Fantasy Dragon Quest RPG fan, and I'll get any game in the main series.

    Eh.

    Japanese media don't say SE they say ???? (sukueni), which I like more than SE, since it sounds so bland, that's why I said SquEni [​IMG].

    More reason for me to choose a PS3 instead of a 360.
    My PC is too crappy to run it.

    Unfortunately the game is doomed to be bad anyways.
    With no PvP the game has absolutely no lasting appeal. You'll get to endgame, get bored, and quit.
    or if it's like the first FF MMO...you'll play for 5 years, finally reach level 2, realize the game is retarded amounts of grind...and quit.

    But anyways, MMO's on a console is just terrible. PSO is alright since it's so simple.
    But otherwise...no.
