Xbox 360 vs. Playstation 3 [Final Fantasy XIII]

xbox-vs-ps3

And there clear winner is… Playstation 3.

Dual console owners will know more than most of the genius that is Digital Foundry. They compare versions of games for a living, so in them we trust. There latest comparison was between the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Final Fantasy XIII.

In some instances cinematic sequences are better than expected, but for the most areas the 360 version “isn’t anywhere near as impressive as it is on PlayStation 3”.

Now the annoying news for Xbox 360 fans is that according to the researcher’s findings, it didn’t have to be this way. They reckon that much of the 360 version’s poor performance in CGI sequences is down to “amateurish” video encoding by Square Enix. They found around 1GB of storage space was left unused on two of the game’s three discs. [Say what? Why?]

On the flipside, Digital Foundry found the framerate is consistently smoother on the 360 better than that on the PS3. [Meh… who cares, I wanted mine to be prettier]

So there you have it officially, officially. Xbox 360 snubbed.
