Final Fantasy XIII

Since I've fallen behind on keeping up with this... anyone know of the differences, if any, between the 360 and PS3 versions? What's everyone else picking it up on?

Edit: Hell with it, I preordered it for the 360. Although feel free to continue weighing in - since it won't ship for days, I should be able to change my order if someone has a really persuasive argument. :p

From what I read previously, the PS3 has one disk (blu-ray) and the XBox has 3, and that was it.

If this post on Joystiq is to be believed, the PS3 version is prettier. We should be able to tell you next week if it's pretty, at least. (But we're not getting two copies for comparison. I'll just wait my turn.)

By next week, I should have my own copy. ;)

Argh, that's not what I want to hear. I actually have people on my 360 friends list, and it seems to have better integrated online stuff, so I'd tend to lean toward that for the achievements and the whole "you have friends playing this too!" thing, lame as that is... but no disc changing + prettier is a big incentive in the other way.

Well, that's just from the pictures on Joystiq. I only looked for a couple minutes just now, and didn't stumble across any other comparisons. Hopefully YMMV?

XBox does seem better at being social. (Not that I know from first-hand experience; my XBox has never been on the internets, and while the PS3 is, I've never used it for anything networked other than downloading Rock Band songs and streaming Netflix.)

You mean it's actually been released? Wow, I might have to lay down the dough for a PS3 after all.
Mar. 4th, 2010 12:34 am (UTC)
It releases on 3/9.
Mar. 4th, 2010 12:35 am (UTC)
Yeah, what he said... releases next week, but I want to go ahead and preorder it, so I'm wondering which version to get.

(I've actually been getting more mileage out of my 360 than my PS3 for what it's worth, which stuns me after the previous console generation which was so much the reverse and then moreso, it's not even funny!)

That doesn't come out for an extra week though! So I'm not gonna wait to pick up FFXIII, but I kinda suspect I'll end up pausing playing one to go to the other. (And along the same lines as your own post, a half a year ago I never ever would have thought I'd be going into a Final Fantasy game just assuming I'm going to brush it aside for Dragon Age stuff to take precedence!)

I have Trophies on the PS3! See?

Sadly, the comment on linearity is probably dead on.

On the off chance you don't know, PS3 has achievements as well (they are called trophies).
Mar. 4th, 2010 01:49 am (UTC)
Preordered for PS3.

edit: oh, suppose I should give a reason. It's the only thing I have ^^v

I'm picking it up for either the Sega Exodus or the Atari Puma, whichever exists in the alternate universe where I play Final Fantasy games. ;-)

I forgot it was coming out quite that soon. I'm going to be playing on the PS3 FWIW, and the things I've heard suggest the PS3 version should be slightly nicer but I doubt there's a significant difference.

Have you seen this article yet? I couldn't really tell the difference between the screenshots despite what they said, but i was reading it on my cellphone at the time, which also meant i couldn't watch the FMV clips which is where they claim the biggest problem is.

I'm going to be getting it for the PS3, of course i only have a Wii and a PS3 so...

If you send me your PSN nick (livejournal email should work fine) then i can add you and you'll have one more person on the PS3 side with trophies to compare to, even if it doesn't change your mind about which system to get it for :)

StormyCoyote... and I keep wavering back and forth over whether I want to change my order to the PS3 version or not. XD

*continues his attempts to seduce stormfeather over to the PS3 side* ;)

Okay, you win, I changed my order!

(Actually, it was the bit about rumors of a malfunctioning third disc in that article that tipped the scales. I'd already been considering, but yeesh.)
