Microsoft Gets RPG Aggressive
Microsoft has enlisted Hironobu Sakaguchi, credited with creating the legendary “Final Fantasy” series of role-playing video games, to make two games for the next Xbox game console, the company said Thursday.
Interesting news, especially around EA and 3DO founder Trip Hawkins’s recent prediction: My magic eight ball says [Nintendo] will be acquired by Microsoft within five years.” Of course, Nintendo officially denies any of these rumours.
Wow, I never thought I’d see the day. As a giant fan of the Final Fantasy series, and especially its beginnings in Nintendo, this news comes to be a little bit of a surprise. Sakaguchi is a legend and Microsoft seems determined to raise the stakes. And, well, might just get this non-Xbox fan to reconsider her position.
Hmm… the plot thickens.
