E3 08: Ultimate achievement unlocked! Final Fantasy XIII coming to the Xbox 360

I would love to have been a fly on the wall during the Microsoft/Square-Enix meeting when it was decided that Final Fantasy XIII would also be coming to the Xbox 360 and not remain a PlayStation 3 exclusive. Seriously, how did this happen?

For years, Sony has been banking on releasing FFXIII and reaping all the numerous sales benefits in return. Well, now it’s official: the next chapter in the revered Final Fantasy series is coming to the Xbox 360.

During the Microsoft press conference, everyone and their mothers went crazy once they played the trailer from the game and made the big announcement. Honestly, I didn’t think something like this would ever happen.

I still have high hopes for Sony and their growing list of exclusives — don’t ignore the power of God of War III — but this is a pretty huge bombshell. What do you all think? Stunned? Surprised? Saddened?
