Even though Final Fantasy XIII is a multi-platform title, the main interest remains squarely on the PlayStation 3 version. Simply because the series has been focused around Sony for so long now. Square-Enix are confident that FF XIII will utilize the consoles capabilities to it’s fullest. Pushing it to its limits.
Kotaku reports that, while speaking to Japanese magazine Dengeki PlayStation 3, producer Yoshinori Kitase answered some questions about the game. “Doesn’t the demo use about 50 percent of [the PlayStation 3's] power?” he asked. “Of course, I think the retail version will make use of nearly 100 percent.”
He went on to compare the game to Final Fantasy VII/X, saying that XIII will do for the PlayStation 3 what those games did for the PS1/PS2. He also confirmed that the game will not be using disk swapping, at least not on the PS3 version, due to the massive space Blu-Ray provides. Let’s just see what Square can do, if it’s truly outstanding than maybe other developers will follow their lead, and we’ll get some truly stunning PS3 games.
The other matter at hand is the XBox 360 version of the game. The developers have probably stowed it away in the back of their minds as it’s not going to be ported until the PS3 version is 100% completed. But if Square are telling the truth about how hard they’re going to push the PS3, what does this mean for the 360 version?
