Final Fantasy XIII Coming to 360 In Japan

No thank you Sephiroth, but you can take it and throw it at those PS3 fanboys in Japan. I hate the word "fanboy" but I had no choice but use it in this case. Alot of people forget the phrase "money makes the world go around." It's true in most cases and it's no different with Square-Enix. Yes, they said it wasn't going to be released on 360 in Japan but there are some or at least a few 360-only owners in Japan. (I don't know how many.) I'm not saying that's the reason it's being released but Square-Enix is trying to or will profit from this release in some kind of way. What if someone found the cure to some disease and decided not to share it? What if a super hero had powers to save someone and only used it to grill meat? Video games aren't as serious as those cases but the point is people shouldn't be so selfish over such simple things and also Square-Enix most people do whatever it takes to make that dollar. Square Enix's CEO Yoichi Wada received the backlash on his Twitter account for their decision. Here's some of the comments left on his account below:

Is it true? After saying so many times it would never be released on the Xbox in Japan, if you really do release it nobody will trust your word again.
Say something!
You’re going to betray us after saying it would never come out? I’m cancelling my pre-orders.
You liar!
Lying to customers is how you do business, eh? I’ll never buy a Square Enix title again.
With all the illegal lies and misdirection about FF13 you made, I reported you to the ministry of consumer affairs. And you promised DLC and quietly abandoned it – you’re detestable.
Stop your pompous waffling and resign! Haven’t you made enough money yet? Next time put a guy who actually loves games in charge.
What’s up with game developers? Practically everything they say is a lie…
Well done, Scrooge.
Hey Wada! What the hell is this about FF13 on the 360 in Japan? You kept advertising the game in all the mags as a domestic PS3 exclusive! If you go through with this nobody’ll trust you again… Honestly I hate you so much I’d like to kill you. Quit soon. This is your last chance.
You’d better be prepared to run, or you’ll be killed! At the very least you ought to be prepared for a few rocks thrown your way!
Pretty ridiculous. Other than that, the game will have a few new features.
  • English voices
  • Original English theme song
  • First purchase booklet
  • Easy Mode
  • English and European subtitles
It'll be released on December 16th in Japan for 4890 yen.
