Final Fantasy X heads to Xbox?

Square has confirmed plans to make a large announcement regarding Final Fantasy X in the New Year. Is the first next gen FF heading to Xbox?

Following the revelation that Xbox will be shown for the first time at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on January 6, a Square rep in Japan has revealed that an announcement regarding the state of Final Fantasy X will be made at the beginning of the New Year.
"Anyway, for the opening of the New Year, we would like to make an announcement regarding FFX, in some form or another," the rep told Japanese magazine Dengeki-oh. "Please look forward to it."

We certainly are. Talk is already spreading that Square will confirm the title as an Xbox exclusive, although this seems to be a stab in the dark and is certainly unsubstantiated. The Square Europe rep we spoke to today knew nothing of the announcement.

Whatever the truth, if it happens at CES, CVG will be on hand to bring you live updates from the showfloor.

Highly doubt it would be exclusive, but it would not surprise me to see the game land on the Xbox as well as PS2.  In fact I would be surprised if Sqaure DOSEN\'T mention their support of Xbox.

Final Fantasy X is PS2 exclusive.
X doesn\'t stand for Xbox you moron. It stands for 10

Professor my friend... I don\'t think FFX is coming to the Xbox. That article is here
http://ps2.ign.com/news/29178.html

And what that computer and video games artivle is implying that FFX is the X stuck on the end of all Xbox games. Well, The FF series used roman numerals. And what comes after IX? (9) X!!(10)

You guys like my new signature?

Not sure who you are addressing there Animal.  If it is me, kindly go **** yourself. I am well aware of what the "X" stands for. IF it was professor x you were addressing...nevermind :)

I was adressing professor! and, computerandvidogames must be idiots because that same article (almost) is at http://ps2.ign.com/news/29178.html cept it doesn\'t imply Xbox. Square has YET to make a big Ps2 announcment, and this might be it. Playstation is on the list of all time best Japanese inventions. So is intanst ramen, and the Katana sword

I am confident that Square will support the Xbox but FFX an exclusive?  Isn\'t FFX almost done for the PS2?

Maybe they are annoucing that they are NOT making FFX for the ****box.Did anyone ever think of that?

And if they do make FFX on X-Box....who the **** cares? I\'ll have a PS2 by the end of next year.I highly doubt we will see FFX on X-Box next year,if Sqaure odes make this game,then it will come out in 2002.We will already have a copy of this game by that time,and thats good enough for me.

Let\'s see.  Every positive "rumor" about the Xbox have all come true...including the "rumor" that Microsoft was coming out with a game system.  Point two. This:

Quote
Daily Radar\'s J. Allard Interview
DR: Now that EA is on board, and it has such a close relationship with Square, can we expect an Xbox/Square announcement in the near future?

JA: Yeah, you should. We\'re not done announcing our development partners. This announcement further cements the fact that the world\'s best developers are flocking to the Xbox, and that they think the technical and business strategies are right on and have a lot of confidence in our ability to pull this thing off. And frankly, our confidence grows every day when we get great partners like this on board.


Try to misinterpret that anyway you please, but J. "I can\'t keep a secret" Allard just gave it away like he always does.  Point three: Square made some PS2 tech demos, and the console was launched in Japan last year.  Now let\'s think.  Why would Square wait so long to announce a game that is supposedly already in development?  If this announcement is made at CES, you might as well hang it up as a PS2 announcement because Sony and Square are Japanese.  Why in the hell would they make an announcement at an American trade show if the game would be released in Japan first.  Doesn\'t make sense. Point four: It\'s all about the Benjamins!  That\'s how Square sees Sony and that\'s all Square cares about.  We all know about Microsoft\'s royalty structure, that\'s the one thing they didn\'t keep a veil over.  Basically this is it: If a high-profile developer puts a high-profile project EXCLUSIVELY on Xbox, then that basically means that the royalty fee could go as low as $1!  That means that Microsoft only get\'s a buck for every game sold while the developer gets the rest!  All the boys from Redmond have to do is convince Square that Xbox would make them rich (a cash infusion wouldn\'t help either *cough* ODDWORLD *cough*. :D  With cutting-edge hardware backed by a half-billion dollar marketing campaign, Square could be convinced that they will make some dough off of the box.  Not to mention that the guys at Square are in love with the \'box.  From the GPU to the cutting-edge sound chip, they absolutely love it!

The Reverend will go as far and say that if the announcement is made in Japan then it\'s a PS2/Xbox related announcement.  If Square makes this announcement at the Consumer Electronics Show (an American trade show, I remind you), then the rumor could prove very true.  As of lately, some big-mouthed Microsoft employees must have leaked some info because everything that was rumored basically came true.  As I\'ve mentioned before, J. Allard isn\'t trying hard at all in keeping a secret.  You thought the EA announcement was huge...if this rumor pans out, this will be a critical score for Microsoft.  Anyway you put it, the January announcement will be good for Xbox.  We already know Square are on board.  It\'s just a matter if FFX is the first game--exclusive even.  I really don\'t see why FFX won\'t be out for PS2, it\'s just beyond me.  The console and the game are a perfect fit, unless Square are building a game that REQUIRES a hard drive.

Here\'s what the Reverend calls:
  • If Square makes the announcement at CES score another one for the folks at Redmond.  Don\'t count a PS2 announcement also.  However, the fact that this announcement is made in Las Vegas first could very well mean that FFX could be Xbox exclusive.
  • If Square keeps the announcement in Japan, then it\'s all good for the PS2...and Xbox.  Final Fantasy XI is a given for Xbox, but don\'t count FFX out.  Although it\'s possible that Xbox may get X, a Tokyo announcement could kill that possibility.


So in a nutshell, home court advantage will kick in for these competing companies.  Bill Gates will be at CES to unviel the console and controller design, however it would rock to see him shaking hands with a Square representative/game producer and Xbox getting the exclusive rights to Final Fantasy X.
