Nagoshi not interested in porting Yakuza games to the Xbox 360

August 24, 2011

Sony Computer Entertainment has become the De Facto home for Kazuma Kiryu's adventures

Despite the fact that Nagoshi’s team is working hard on it’s multiplatform title Binary Domain, the veteran director has made some interesting remarks, such as if Yakuza games would ever be ported to the Xbox 360:

“At the beginning of the project we spoke to all the platform holders including Sony and Microsoft,” he said, “Every platform holder was negative about this prospect, but we kept on pushing because we believed in the potential, and as we kept going one platform holder that showed interest and saw the prospects of this title was Sony.”

“That’s how we started working with them, and that’s probably not going to change.”

Well, I had a feeling Microsoft’s non-chalant attitude towards other IPs that are unrelated to their holy trinity of milked franchises (Halo, Gears of War and Fable) would have something to do with outcome.
