Sorry, PS3 fanboys...

After vehemently assuring PS3 fanboys that Final Fantasy Versus XIII would remain exclusive to their beloved console, the game's director is now changing his rhetoric so as to leave open the possibility of a later port to the Xbox 360.

Tetsuya Nomura said in a message posted on Twitter that the game was being developed "specifically for the PlayStation 3." However, that's a very different statement than saying it will be exclusive to the PS3.

...Especially when you combine it with a further statement he made. He clarified the difference between a game designed for a multi-platform release and a game that's ported to a different platform after production was completed. "Porting is something that’s done after you’ve developed a game specifically for a particular platforms," he wrote.

The bells should be going off. This means there's discussion about Versus XIII being ported to another system, most obviously the Xbox 360. Of course, Nomura's words seem to suggest that such a release would be inferior of Microsoft's console, but it is still a far cry from when Square Enix tried to assure gamers who were crushed by the Final Fantasy XIII multi-platform news. At that time the studio said Versus would remain exclusive to the PS3.

The game is expected to be on display at the Tokyo Game Show, which begins later this month. Gamers are clamoring to finally receive new details. It has become shrouded in mystery after Square Enix completely stopped talking about it and then said it might not be available in the US until 2012. We'll keep our eyes peeled.
