Rumor: Final Fantasy XV will be a PS4 exclusive

Sony and Square Enix are co-developing the next installment in the legendary (though recently maligned) Final Fantasy series: Final Fantasy XV, formerly Versus XIII. The rumor comes courtesy of VGLeaks.
No source or credibility is offered, so this rumor should be taken with a massive grain of salt. However, recent events lend credence to VGLeaks' report. Most notably, during Sony's PS4 reveal conference, Square Enix revealed that a new Final Fantasy game will be unveiled at E3. Furthermore, a recent website spotting indicates that the oft-delayed Final Fantasy Versus XIII, which made its formal debut in 2007, has been renamed to Final Fantasy XV and is undergoing design changes befitting of a main series installment.
The most uncertain information here is whether Final Fantasy XV (or whatever its called) will, in fact, be a PS4 exclusive. Historically, numbered-entry Final Fantasy games have favored Sony systems. Final Fantasy XI, XIII, and XIII-2 bucked the trend by also releasing on Xbox 360, but the upcoming Final Fantasy XIV reboot will make PS3 its console home.
