Final Fantasy XIII was announced as a multiplatform title, for both the Playstation 3 and the Xbox 360, over here in the west. While in Japan, it wasn’t announced or indicated that it’d be released as a multiplatform title over there. But this imagine speaks otherwise.
Square Enix has been promoting Final Fantasy XIII as a Ps3 only in japan title, and shows no implications of being released on another console. It’s apparently an exclusive there. This webpage of Final Fantasy XIII was uploaded to the Japanese Xbox Live website earlier, and quickly taken down. The link doesn’t even work anymore.
Microsoft says that it is all a mistake. An Xbox PR says that the Final Fantasy XIII page was accidentally uploaded during web management operations and was handled, by being taken down.The title will be released in North America and Europe as previously expected. Microsoft claims that it was just the western page that accidentally was uploaded to the Japanese website.
From what I hear, many people find it fishy how someone would accidentally upload a fully translated Final Fantasy XIII page.
