Boris Schneider-Johne, Product Manager of Microsoft Germany, is pleased that Devil May Cry 4
is headed to the Xbox 360. On his personal blog he posted a very simple message. Titled, "One down, two to go," it reads:
Devil May Cry
- Final Fantasy
- Metal Gear Solid
As IGN reports, many sites quickly speculated that Schneider-Johne was implying that Microsoft had plans to acquire the remaining franchises in the list. Schneider-Johne clarified in an update to his post that the list merely represents a personal wish list and doesn't reflect Microsoft as a whole. Personal wish list or not, there have certainly been rumblings that these major franchises
could go multiplatform. Considering the rising cost of development, the success of the 360, and the rocky start of the PS3, it's not too
far-fetched to think other series might make the jump as well.
Anyone have any other PS3 exclusives they'd like to see on Xbox 360?

This was the exact same conversation I had with my friends after the DMC4 news hit:
Final Fantasy and Metal Gear
That would be pretty sweet.

i would like to see a Formula 1 game on the X360 - its about time Microsoft buys the rights off the FIA to make an F1 Game.

i want tekken i know im the minority on this one but tekken 2 kicked some serious butt
3-21-2007 @ 1:37PM
Tekken! Since Ace Combat & Ridge Racer are on the 360 Namco should go ahead and make all the rest of their games multiplatform.

oh man! microsoft is getting cocky, and it couldn't make me any happier!!

Meh... I got what I wanted. Though I suppose it's poor form not to wish my fellow players luck in their favorites coming to the Xbox 360 too. So, good luck!

3-21-2007 @ 5:00PM

The popular ones announced so far for Playstation 3 that have not yet been announced for Xbox 360 are:
1. Final Fantasy 13
2. Metal Gear Solid 4
3. Tekken 6
There is also a game called Dragon Quest, which is BY FAR the most popular game series in Japan.
Microsoft needs to make sure that Dragon Quest is released for the Xbox 360.

Dragon Quest has not yet been announced for either the Playstation 3 or the Xbox 360.
If Microsoft could get Dragon Quest as an exclusive console game in Japan, then the Xbox 360 would dominate in Japan, just like it does in North America and Europe.

Motorstorm. That's pretty much the only other one I can think of that hasn't already been announced as multiplatform, other than the obviously never will be multiplatform "Home".

The MGS4 combat is actually looking fairly decent, so it would be awesome to get the game on the 360, as long as the combat stays fairly decent. My friend would love FF on the 360; so both would be great.

dragon quest IX was announced.... .. ... for DS!!!!, and it makes sense, the most popular franchise of Japan in the most popular hardware of japan.

While Forza 2 is gonna be good, I'd still like to see Gran Turismo on the 360.
3-22-2007 @ 12:28PM
gran turismo..thats never coming over but if were wishing for stuff i'd wish for god of war 3 im gonna buy a ps3 just for that and well im sure they'll have a hand full of other games by than but im gonna wait till they make a mini ps3 i owned a big ps1 and a big ps2 and i always thought i should of waited til it got smaller one
3-22-2007 @ 9:32PM
