Digital Foundry: 360 version of Final Fantasy XIII 'adequate but a touch disappointing'



So, you read our review of Final Fantasy XIII and are prepared to pick it up next week, but you're not sure which version to buy? If you're basing your decision on graphical fidelity, the A/V experts from Eurogamer's Digital Foundry suggest you go with the PS3 version of the game -- as seen in their quartet of video comparisons, the 360 version suffered a bit of resolution reduction during its trip between platforms.

No, the difference in quality isn't groundbreaking or anything. We just wanted you to know all the factors before making a decision. Both versions have their strengths and weaknesses -- for instance, the 360 version requires you to change the disc two times, but the PS3 version of the game is unplayable once every 1,461 days.

The main difference will be that the PS3 version will run at 1080p but thats about it, nobody, except proper techies, will care about that.

yep...I don't watch much TV (actually cant think of a TV show I routinely watch, maybe only MotD?!?) and when I play xbox I have to get as close to the screen as possible otherwise it feels like I'm not trying hard enough so I doesn't matter that I've got a 28 inch old skool TV.

wierd I know!

That made me laugh.

They did leave out the most important difference ... achievements, which is the only reason I'm getting it (and any other multi-platform releases) for the 360.

It refers to this leap year problem that the PS3 has just had  ;D
