Final Fantasy XIV software development boss Hiromichi Tanaka has said that his studio may consider using PlayStation Move in the game.

Speaking to the PlayStation Blog regarding Sony’s latest device, Tanaka said:

“Unfortunately, we haven’t had chance to try it [PlayStation Move] out yet but we’ve heard very interesting things about it and we’d like to look at supporting it in Final Fantasy XIV, if we get the chance to do so.

“However, at the moment I would say that there are no current plans.”

The Final Fantasy man also went on to explain that in bringing the game to PlayStation 3, Square is hoping to provide a real MMO experience to the console for the first time.

“Because Final Fantasy XIV is designed as a cross-platform MMO, there is no difference between the PC version and the PS3 version. We believe that previous attempts to bring MMOs to consoles have been unsuccessful because they focused too much on adapting their style to suit that audience and they lost the feel of a true MMO.

“Therefore, regardless of the platform, we are aiming to produce a real MMO with Final Fantasy XIV.”

Final Fantasy XIV is set to release before the end of the year for PC and PS3.
