Team targeting ‘equal experience’ on 360 and PS3.
FF legend and XIII producer Yoshinori Kitase has told VideoGamer.com that the development team has not had to make any concessions for the Xbox 360 port.
Final Fantasy XIII is due out on the PS3 and the Xbox 360 simultaneously in North America and Europe sometime in 2010. However, Square Enix has confirmed that the Xbox 360 version will be a port of the PS3 version.
Overnight US website Giant Bomb brought word that development of the Xbox 360 version of hotly anticipated JRPG only began once the recent Japan-exclusive PS3 demo was released in April.
Some fans have expressed concern that content may be left out of both versions of the game due to DVD storage limitations.
Speaking to VideoGamer.com, Kitase dispelled that myth. He said: “The team is targeting to create an equal experience on both the 360 and the PS3, so there are no limitations. For example, right now we’re working on the PS3 version first, and once we’ve completed that we’ll really know how much game there will be to fit onto the Xbox 360 discs.
“So we don’t know how many discs it’ll be housed on for 360, but there won’t be a chance that we’ll compromise anything because, oh it didn’t fit in the 360 discs so we’ll have to take it out of the PS3 version, or vice versa.”
Final Fantasy XIII is looking stupendously good. We’ll have a first-look preview from E3 for you tomorrow.
