A journalist has got his hands on the final code for Final Fantasy XIII. And after playing the PS3 version, he reports back that the Xbox 360 version is worse. The CG is extremely compressed, objects are less detailed, character clothing doesn't have the final details amongst more 'issues'.
<blockquote>The final retail Xbox 360 code is in the door and comes off comparatively the poorer...
Final retail code has just arrived in the building for the Xbox 'cut' of Final Fantasy XIII and as many suspected, it is exactly that. A cut.
Having just finished the game in just under sixty hours on PS3 puts us in prime position to note the differences in visual quality.
â€œSacrifices have clearly been madeâ€
So far we have noted:
* While facial detail appears largely unchanged, the characters' clothes appear at first glance to be lacking finer details, with notably lower resolution textures.
* Incidental environmental objects and enemies appear less detailed, both in texture and geometry.
* The game's CG is extremely compressed and pales alongside the stunning HD goodness which blu-ray offers.</blockquote>
