Today at Square Enix's Q&A, they talked about considering putting the game on a Microsoft console as well as the PS3/PC.
I was really excited about everything else, but this made me worry.
I am not a Sony fanboy.
I own an Xbox 360 and a PC for my gaming needs.
That being said, I do not trust my Xbox 360 at all.
Of all the 360 games I've owned, I can only think of one that didn't give me any major technical issues; Tales of Vesperia, and that game isn't exactly pushing the console to its limits with cel-shaded graphics.
JRPGs from Square Enix in particular have given me major problems with frame rate/lag, such as in The Last Remnant and Infinite Undiscovery.
FFXI on the 360 is just horrible, but I guess pointing that out is not fair. (?)
I don't really need to go into details.
I owned a PS3 for a short time and while the game selection didn't really appeal to me it was definitely good hardware.
I didn't experience any of the problems that I have on my 360, regardless of the graphics/quality of the game I was playing.
I really want Square Enix's next MMORPG to succeed, especially now that it's officially the next Final Fantasy title.
Obviously, the game was just announced yesterday, and it's far too early to assume things like this, but...
Square Enix went out of their way to correct Sony's big announcement about the game's console exclusivity, and... well, we all know what happened with Final Fantasy XI and XIII.
Some might say it's just smart business to at least attempt an Xbox 360 release for XIV.
My question is, do you guys think an Xbox 360 version of FFXIV could potentially hold back the game's development like the PS2 version of FFXI supposedly does?
Would an Xbox 360 be able to provide stability in a massively multiplayer online game with graphics similar to those seen in FFXIII?
I'd like to hear what people have to say about this; especially anyone that's a little more knowledgeable about the console's specifications and what it can handle.
