The Digital Foundry have taken their look at the two versions of XIII, and what they have to say isn't pretty. Here's some choice quotes:

The rumours are true. Final Fantasy XIII on Xbox 360 isn't anywhere near as impressive as it is on PlayStation 3. The real kicker is that it's a lot worse than it should have been.

However, by just about every measurable criteria, it seems that the Xbox 360 version of Final Fantasy XIII is a quick port where the existing PS3 material has been very roughly manhandled and bludgeoned into shape in order to work on the Microsoft console.

"Adequate but a touch disappointing" best sums up the Xbox 360 version. Fine edges lose precision, and while the effect is mitigated thanks to the MSAA along with the multitude of post processing effects the engine has at its disposal, the fact is that the lack of resolution can make the 360 build look sub-par. The clean CG look of the PS3 game in motion is unduly compromised, and while it's still a handsome enough title on Xbox 360, it lacks the pristine presentation of its sibling.
They did say it could have been worse though....

Its not a major different people are having a ***** fit over nothing, yes PS3 looks slightly better at some points but it was orginally for ps3. :D

Yeah, but from DF say, the Crystal tools engine isn't exactly brilliant. And that's what SE are going to be using in their games for a while I believe.

How long after FF13 is released outside of Japan do you guys think we'll start to hear more about vs13?

Versus is PS3 exclusive isn't it?

Rivendell 05-03-10 16:08

At the moment, yes - but I wouldn't be surprised if it gets released on X360 as well! :)

Jack Croft 05-03-10 16:08

Nor would I Rivendell.

There will be high demand and SE will give in.
