FFXIV looks likely for Xbox 360

Xbox Live causing the hold-up.

Final Fantasy XIV Online producer Hiromichi Tanaka has revealed that Square Enix is "in discussions" with Microsoft about an Xbox 360 version of the MMO. The hold-up, apparently, is being caused by Xbox Live.

"For FFXIV, because 360 has its own policy with Xbox Live that is different from [the] internet, that's something we're in discussions with Microsoft [about] - to come to an agreement," Tanaka told VG247 at gamescom.

"That's one of the reasons it's not going to be launched at that point," he added, referencing the simultaneous PC and PS3 release next year.

Final Fantasy XIV Online was unveiled at E3 as part of the Sony keynote address. The first gameplay footage was filmed at gamescom this week, and our impressions of the MMO from there will be with you later today.

Stay tuned.
