I hope so too.
That would be awesome to play Square's Epic games on Xbox 360.

Funny thing about Japanese companies ...
... Most Japanese companies don't let their regional subsidiaries make any of these types of decisions. The new CEO may give his input; but he's not in a position to make decisions about what platforms games will be developed for.

Remember, the company is Japanese. The biggest fanbase for the FF franchise is in Japan as well (though the US does have a considerable FF fanbase). So they're going to make the platform decision based on the Japanese market; not the US market.

You will never get Final Fantasy XIII and plus
Why would Square Enixe put Final Fantasy XIII on a crapy console that always breaksdown 2 months and 2 weeks. and it doesnt mean that there going to have a new CEO that is american it doesnt mean hes going to like the XBox 360 and make it multiplatform nice_cuppa antonius05 -.

well, who cares =)
FFXIII already is utilising ps3 power, so it won`t be a multiplatform game, and in best case, x360 will get a port. =)
so quality of FFXIII on ps3 won`t hurt, that`s all what matters. :)
