I am lucky enough to own both consoles, PS3 and XBOX 360, which leads me to my question, which version of FF13 shall i buy? Will it be better to get the PS3 version or the ported 360 version? Is there any need to to worry about differences?, of course if there are any! I'm no expert lol! anyone have an opinion?

Hi! To answer your question, definitely the PS3 one. The 360 version comes with two or three (not sure) discs. It's just more convenient to get the PS3 one, and have it on one blu ray.

another reason to buy the PS3 version, size of the overall game of the XBOX is 19.7GB smaller than the PS3!!!

Hi, the xbox version is rumoured to be 576p which is a sub HD resolution, compared to the PS3 version which is definitely 720p.

@ Kev

I think its just the cutscenes (compression), gameplay wise its similar.

Nope, its gameplay. It was found out by the person who checks native resolutions at digital foundry.

In short..

PS3 gameplay 720p. 360 gameplay 576p
PS3 cutscenes 1080p. 360 cutscenes 720p.
PS3 lossless audio. 360 audio compressed to hell

well that's enough to make up anyones mind, why pay the same price for a sub standard version! That's like paying half price for a hooker who doesn't have any legs... Hmmmm... Wait a minute that would be awesome :)

ah thanks for the heads up xxDingerxx, I just doubled check on kotaku too (which I should have looked at in the first place). I read somewhere else that it was just it was just the cutscenes and the gameplay was similar =p

Strange that I can't find the source now .... must have realised they were wrong and removed it <_<.
