so the difference is that the PS3 will come on BluRay and the 360 version will be on HD discs ....

A man walks into a bar .... OW!

the 360 version will be on dual layer DVD discs, so i'm guessing the game will be on 4 discs and will probably run at 720p, the PS3 version will be on 1 blu-ray at 1080p & no doubt all the Sony fanboys will be loving the microscopic victory right there  :)

I don't mind multiple discs.

I dont' mind compressed audio.

If the 360 version is only 720p and PS3 is 1080p, I would be tempted to buy it on PS3.  But I still prefer Achievements over Trophies, so the 360 will always win for me.

i'm with you on that neato, the fact that the game is even on the 360 in the first place is good enough for me  :)

Final Fantasy XIII soundtrack site launches with samples from game's four-disc score



The official Japanese site for Final Fantasy XIII's soundtrack has gone live, offering the ability to listen to the first ten tracks from the four-disc mega-album. Andriasang reports that the site will be updated with all of the discs' contents over time, along with notes on the tracks by composer Masashi Hamauzu, who worked with Nobuo Uematsu on the score for Final Fantasy X.

You can listen to the tracks by heading to the site and clicking on the "track list" tab at the bottom of the page. The album releases in Japan on January 27 in both standard and limited "first cut" editions. If Square announces a domestic release, it'll be music to our ears.

FFXIII ships 1.8m for Japan launch

Square Enix has dug deep and found another few hundred thousand copies of Final Fantasy XIII for the game's launch in Japan earlier today.

A healthy 1.8 million copies of the PS3 game have been trucked off to shops around the region - a figure that includes console bundled copies.

Prior to this revision, Square Enix had said that 1.3 million copies of the highly anticipated PS3 RPG would be available during the game's first seven days on sale.

Final PS2 instalment Final Fantasy XII stockpiled two million copies high for launch day alone, although the console had a comparably larger installed base.

Still, the wait for Final Fantasy XIII is finally over - at least for PS3 owners in Japan. The Xbox 360 version is reserved exclusively for the West.

Thankfully, anyone adept at Japanese may import without a care, although we'd urge caution to anyone new to the language as the game relies heavily on text and spoken dialogue.

The US and Europe will receive Final Fantasy XIII on 9th March, simultaneously on PS3 and Xbox 360.

Square Enix cut a game's worth of content from Final Fantasy XIII



It turns out there once were many more labyrinthine paths and dungeons in Final Fantasy XIII, but they got cut. An interview (in Japanese) over at FF-Reunion with art director Isamu Kamikokuryou ("No you!" to his friends) has him saying that the team removed enough extra locations from the title to make up a whole other game entirely.

Sections cut include a secret base for Snow's hero squad, a character's home that included a park, and even a zoo inside one of the game's amusement park areas. This is all more impressive when you consider that Square Enix is expecting to need three DVDs to hold everything that's still in the Xbox 360 version of the game. But FFXIII completists, don't worry too much -- we're sure some of that content will appear sometime during the game's 10-year cycle.
