Square Enix US boss John Yamamoto has claimed the days of system dominance are done and dusted.

“Not so long ago the PS2 dominated the market so if we developed an exclusive game for PS2 then we could enjoy a very good profit. But that time is already over,” Yamamoto told GI.

“To maximise and spread our games to as many users as possible I think we have to go to multiformat – the Xbox 360, PS3 and also the PC as well.

“The Japanese market is very strong and back when we could concentrate on developing games for just one console, business was very good. But the one-console market is over.”
