FF legend and XIII producer Yoshinori Kitase has told 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, 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.

What do you think readers? Has Kitase convinced you neither version of the game will be compromised? Let us know in the comments section below.

Exactly, I agree with you. Square is lying and running around in circles.

Hate to be a jerk, but that's a lie. The PS3 version is being temporally compromised. Because it's a simultaneous release but the majority of the porting effort is set aside until the PS3 version is done, western PS3 gamers will have to wait for them to finish with the 360 version. Thanks a lot, Microsoft and Square Enix.
