Final Fantasy To Xbox?

Microsoft in talks with Enix, Squaresoft
Xbox maker gets serious about penetrating Japan

TOKYO - Ahead of the highly anticipated launch of Microsoft’s Xbox in Japan next month, the U.S. software giant is poised to team up with the makers of some of the country’s leading game software to produce titles for the game machine.

Microsoft (MSFT: news, chart, profile), which is scheduled to roll out the game console in Japan on February 22 with a 34,800 yen ($263) price tag, is pinning its hopes on the Internet capabilities of its Xbox game machine and has been looking for partners to develop Internet games for the console.
