Square Enix's Final Fantasy
-themed MMO is playable on a lot of platforms, but unfortunately not -- directly anyhow -- on the PS3. The dev team behind the game revealed, however, that a PS3 version wasn't entirely out of the mix. At the recent Fan Fest event in Hollywood, the team spoke to 1UP
about how Final Fantasy XI
was going to be re-released for PS3, but ultimately got canned.
"Initially we were in talks with a representative from Sony [to achieve this], but it appears that that person quit," said FFXI
producer Hiromichi Tanaka. Beyond that response though, there doesn't seem to be any explanation as to why talks haven't resumed; however, what is certain is that a PS3 version isn't in the works and hasn't been for a long time. Funnily, all this talk about MMOs makes us wonder whatever happened to that other new MMO Square Enix was working on? You know, the one that was announced three years ago
