Square Enix Shares Rise Thanks to FFXIII Heading to the Xbox 360

Bloomberg is reporting that Square Enix’s shares have gained a 3.2% jump to 3190 JPY ($30.46) after yesterday’s announcement that FFXIII was headed to the Xbox 360.

The PS3 and 360 versions will have a simultaneous release in the US and Europe, so it looks like the decision to bring the title to the 360 was a smart move on their part financially. Now all they have to do is start working on the port, since the decision to include the 360 was just a recent decision.

“We had to adjust so many things, including the relationship with Microsoft, and the development tools – it wasn’t such a long time ago that we made the decision,” Hashimoto said.

Not suprising, i suspect it’ll keep going up for awhile.
