Square Enix president Yoichi Wada has told GamesIndustry.biz that the RPG specialist is neutral when it comes to dealing with publishing and platform partners.
The company shocked Final Fantasy fans at E3 when it announced that the latest title in the series – Final Fantasy XIII – would appear on the Xbox 360, sparking intense debate amongst followers of the evergreen RPG franchise previously associated with Sony and the PlayStation brand.
"We always consider the territory and hardware for titles, and I just want to make sure that we're neutral about dealing with companies," said Wada.
"In Japan we know that the Xbox 360 isn't really that strong yet, but for me I feel very calm about dealing with any company, and we're not partnering exclusively with any particular company."
Wada said that the company will continue to support multiple formats in its efforts to reach beyond a core audience, and the Xbox 360 offers strong opportunities to expand into the US market.
"In North America Microsoft is doing very well with its hardware, and for that reason it's a very important partner for us," he said.
