Supposedly play-testers of Final Fantasy XIII have been reporting that the graphics on the Xbox 360 version are inferior to that on the PlayStation 3. According to Sankaku Complex, the players of both versions feel that the one on the PlayStation 3 looks better compared to the one on the Xbox 360.
In an interview with an everyday gamer, Sankaku receives the same information:
I went to the Sunnyvale one today and got to play the 360 version. I am so very disappointed to see the difference in textures and detail of the 360 version vs. the PS3. =( I know it's DVD vs. BD, but I didn't think it would be that noticeable. My boyfriend told me it's fine if I wanna stick with the 360 version, but he's going for the PS3 one now.
In an interview with a game journalist, Sankaku collects the same information again:
Both PS3s and 360s were being used to show off the game, which was great as I was able to see both versions running side-by-side. As expected, the 360 version was noticeably less crisp than its PS3 counterpart, but it still ran nicely.
The developers of the game also had some relevant information to share:
It was easy to port to the Xbox. Porting to the PS3 is harder. The PS3 has more processing power but you have to do it properly.
So does it necessarily matter if one version looks a little less intense than the other? Unless you're running both versions side-by-side, I don't think it will make much of a difference. Final Fantasy XIII is expected to be available for purchase on March 9th.
