According to this interview with a Square Executive Producer, Square's next MMO is coming to the 360 and PC, with the PS3 as only a possibility:

Pro-G: So what are you working on now? Any plans for the future?

HT: I'm still working on XI as it's on-going but we are also working on a next-generation MMORPG for 360 and Vista but PS3 is a possibility.

I don't know why they even say 'the PS3 is a possibility', we all know that it'll be ported.  If it isn't Kobra will eat his shorts  Tongue

Has there been any word if this was going to be another Final Fantasy type setting?

Rumors are pointing to a world used in a previous FF (but not FFXI).

Undoubtedly it has to do with the PS3 architecture and whether there will even be a worthwhile user base for the PS3 by the time the game is ready to come out.

I don't think they're worried about the user base or cell architecture. I'd bet it has more to do with hammering out an agreement on how Square's project would use the Playstation Network and what kind of cut from the monthly fees that Sony will get.

I am sure this will see the PS3-just likely 6-12 months later due to issues with the PSN and Sony and fees and all that. Perhaps there is also an exclusivity window that we aren't privy too.

So help me, if they make FFVII into an MMO I'm kicking someone at Squeenix square in the nuts.

FF7 MMO would be the most appealing to the bean counters I'm sure.  But the world design doesn't really seem like a good fit.  Of all the FFs, FFXII would seem to have the best basis.

Nintendo needs to fix their 'friends code' design.  It's insanely stupid, and their rationalle for not changing it seems like a BS justification.

I heard Squenix is trying to get FFXI on the Wii... but it probably won't happen.

Is FFXI even really relevant anymore?  I imagine it has a nice little core following but I can't image it really has any impact on anything these days.  And friend codes or not, no way would the new MMO SE is working on ever be able to work on Wii just from a tech standpoint.

I'm not sure.  But as far as console MMOGs go, it's the only game in town.

i love final fantasy 11 on the 360,but i just havent got time for it with all my other games i have(a few others on my friends list have sent me messages that they are finally free from FF11) ....its a game that NEEDS a lot of time put into it,myto is still on there everyday though...i still wanna try and get back to it...but final fantasy 12 gets relesed here in two weeks......

as for console MMO's,maybe sony will put star wars galaxies on the ps3,i didnt really like the game(could of been so much better IMO),as i heard that a lot of people left with the trials of obi wan thing(like i did)....i read LOTR:the white council got cancelled..or was that just an RPG?.....hmm..oh conan MMO comes to PCs october ,so that will be 2008 for consoles me thinks

oh thats right,there is also phantasy star online for the 360,which i played the beta,but wasnt keen on
