Posted in News by Conner Flynn on May 15th, 2011

Sony isn’t the only company to get hacked. The makers of Final Fantasy, Square Enix, has just been hacked as well. A few of their websites have been compromised and the company confirmed that the e-mail addresses of up to 25,000 customers who had registered for product updates may have been stolen.

Also, resumes of 350 people applying for jobs in its Canadian office could also have been copied from the web servers. They immediately took the sites offline to assess how it happened and what had been accessed, then they took the necessary measures to increase security of all of their websites, before going live again.

The Xbox 360 is about six-years old. The PlayStation 3 and Wii almost the same age. Microsoft and Sony had said that their current consoles will have 10-year life cycle and it looks like they were pretty on target. A Wii 2 is even expected this year to compete with the 360 and PS3′s Kinect and PlayStation Move motion controllers.

Now we have word that Square Enix, makers of Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest to name a few, are already planning to open a 100 staff studio in Canada next year. This way they will be ready for the next generation consoles and get their games out accordingly.

The iPhone has some decent games, but there are some classics that it is lacking, like Final Fantasy for instance. Not anymore. According to Square Enix, Final Fantasy will be headed to the App Store soon, though we don’t have an official release date or price yet.

Judging by the screenshots, you shouldn’t expect a modern version of course, but it should be fun for those gaming on their iPhone while they should be doing something else.
