Leaked FFXIII Details Confirms 1080p CGI Resolution?
Now that we have a solid North American release date for Final Fantasy XIII, we're trying to dig up as much information as possible.
Now, if this piece of evidence is legit, we have some good news for PlayStation 3 owners: according to the Unofficial FFXIII Site, details on the back of the game box have been leaked to the Internet. It's the Japanese version but that shouldn't matter; essentially, we learn that the PS3 version will not have either a mandatory or optional install, which is good news for those with smaller hard drives. While it's certainly easy to upgrade to a bigger HDD, those with older 20GB or 40GB machines are often annoyed when they run out of space. Furthermore, the technical information shows high-quality LPCM 5.1 audio and CGI sequences in full 1080p resolution. This is interesting news because we know the game itself runs at 720p but apparently, those awesome cut-scenes we've seen in past trailers will be displayed in brilliant 1080p goodness. In addition to the fact that FFXIII's White Engine was initially designed for the PS3 (which makes us believe the 360 version won't be quite as good), these details prove that if you're a multi-console owner, it'd make the most sense to nab the PS3 version of FFXIII. It seems to be the logical choice.
We've recommended differently in the past (especially in regards to several inferior PS3 ports back in 2007) but in this particular case, the more we hear, the more it becomes clear that the PS3 version of the most anticipated RPG of the generation will be preferable.
