Just so you know, FF7 was out on PSX for an entire year and a half before it even hit PC. Xbox wasnt even thought of yet. So gaming wasn't really big for Microsoft. It just allowed you to play games on it. Microsoft and Sony do not own the rights of Cloud, which is exactly why he is 3rd party. But it is obvious that Sony has more a favoritism for him seeing as he has been on every console they have, and Microsoft just PC. Its all about respect for the systems and characters.
No because Final Fantasy 7 was also released for the SNES in Japan. But still, Cloud would be an amazing choice for this game.
Cloud isn't Sony exclusive though.
what, because they've released it on PC?
