* Being developed on PS3 platform first in international Sony headquarters of Japan

* Getting ported to inferior console rife with hidden charges, unreliable engineering and partially human executives who are probably splicing their own bodies with unethical augmentations as we speak

* Getting ported by Japanese developers who secretly despise the American marketplace and want MS to fail

* Cinematics sprinkled with subtle edits that depict typical overweight US teenagers screaming into 360 headsets offensive racial remarks and homophobic insults as they chainsaw each other to death online, a symbolic allusion to the inner self-hatred all 16-year-old 360 owners share

How about this little nugget... It will be exactly the same...Oh no.

#3 Edited by WilliamRLBaker (4779 posts) -

neither. ff13 will suck just like 7,8,9,10,x2, 12..ect
P.S go into your profile and change your stance to sony fanboy, since your obviously one.

#4 Posted by sgthalka (55 posts) -

I wonder if the 360 version will have exclusive DLC where you can chainsaw other players apart online.

But, like, in tactical turn-based chainsaw battles with cool limit break chainsaw summons.

How about this nugget. People like money. If it's good on both then they'll make more money. Therefore, it'll probably be good on both.

It will be the same and let me guess you rolled a real low on your intelligence stat huh?
#7 Posted by YDGI (36 posts) -

I actually wouldn't mind it coming on PC really, but if it's mind-blowingly good then I will have to fork out for a 360. 

#8 Posted by tec3297 (1170 posts) -

Actually the game will be way better on the 360, but I am just a huge Xbox fan...lol

#9 Posted by Strife88 (225 posts) -

It depends, the only thing I can think of is it'll be one two or more discs.

#10 Posted by Bass (692 posts) -

They'll be the same game.
Difference:
Bluray is pretty much guaranteed to be on one disc.
Xbox may be on multiple discs, but you can load it onto your HD if you have a 120 gb one, and then you only need the first disc anyways.

Everything else will be exactly the same.

#11 Posted by Natural20 (48 posts) -

I think Sqeenix is still a PS3 first group and that will be slightly better, but I'm still getting it for my 360

#12 Posted by ScubaKlown (35 posts) -

well all i have to say is that microsoft really bent over sony over on this one. Well now i dont have to get a PS3 to play this game ; D

#13 Posted by samcotts (2258 posts) -

They'll be exactly the same. Perhaps the PS3 version will be slightly better, but not by enough to notice much of a difference.

#14 Posted by TomServo (199 posts) -

So many people say that, oh we're just whining it will be great on both systems, no okay! Look if the company has been developing the game for the ps3 for this long and now they're going to start developing for the 360 and then come out with them at the same time then there's only one way that's going to happen. That way is that they are going to pour all their resources into making ff13 on the 360, which will of been in development for much shorter, equal to the ps3 version which in the end are resources that could of been used to make the ps3 version better. So overall this takes away from the ps3 version and even if they were scaling up for this development they're still not going to even be allowed to make it any better on the ps3 because microsoft is paying them off so much, it's just evil the way that square enix is willing to sell out the quality of their games.

#15 Posted by RoninJack (12 posts) -

As far as I know Square said that they are developing it on the PS3 first... and after they complete the PS3 version they'll start developing it on the 360.

#16 Posted by MadExponent (305 posts) -

I'm willing to bet they will have negligible differences at best.  The PS3 will have an install, I have no doubt in my mind.  The 360 version will probably be 4 discs like Lost Odyssey, totally not a big deal.

#17 Posted by AaronBelfast (1491 posts) -

I'll get back to ya when they're released

#18 Posted by and333 (843 posts) -

Both will be the same next!

#19 Posted by chililili (1328 posts) -

I doubt they will look the same the ps3 version has to look far superior, consider that its been in development pretty much as long as MGS4, so that means that it will look pretty much similar if not better, and I honestly don't think that the 360 can handle that. Ultimately it will be the same game jsut shinier on the ps3.

#20 Posted by igpx407 (75 posts) -

It might look a tad nicer on the PS3 but other then that they'll be the same game.

#21 Posted by Otacon (2209 posts) -

I mean sure they may go he compression route or put the game on more than one disc but nothing noticeable. Are gamers really too lazy now to get up once or twice in a 40+ hour game and change a disc?

#22 Posted by TomServo (199 posts) -

they have so little time to develop for the 360 that it either has to be worse or if it isn't it's just because microsoft is paying them to make the ps3 version worse.

#23 Edited by AndrewGaspar (2419 posts) -

If there's any difference it will just be that the 360 version is on multiple discs and and the PS3 version is not.

EDIT: The pre-rendered cutscenes might have a tad higher fidelity on PS3 due to the extra disc space that lets them keep the videos relatively uncompressed.

Wow, such absolutism. With a statement like that one can only deduce that you are clearly are an xbox fanboy... Or something...

As for the TC and his equally bold statements. Uhm. Wow. None of what you wrote will happen due to how this game is being developed. Or how any modern muliti platform game is developed. The Crystal Tool development engine was written to be a multi-platform engine: PC/PS3/Xbox 360. Let's go through TC statements point by point:

* Being developed on PS3 platform first in international Sony headquarters of Japan

It's true development started first on the PS3. But so did development for other games... Such as Assassins Creed... And Devil May Cry 4, and other games, none of which showed any earth shattering changes between platforms. If anything history points to PS3 ports sadly having more instances of problems.

* Getting ported to inferior console rife with hidden charges, unreliable engineering and partially human executives who are probably splicing their own bodies with unethical augmentations as we speak
What? What hidden charges? The 360 does have hardware issues but seldom do they affect games... Just the hardware... Unethical augmentations? What is this Bioshock?

* Getting ported by Japanese developers who secretly despise the American marketplace and want MS to fail
Grab your tin foil hat? The 360 has a larger install base in NA. Square wants to make more money in NA. Square has no incentive from a business standpoint to secretly wish the demise of the platform they are already making games on. (Last Remnant/ Unlimited Undiscovery/ Star Ocean 4)

* Cinematics sprinkled with subtle edits that depict typical overweight US teenagers screaming into 360 headsets offensive racial remarks and homophobic insults as they chainsaw each other to death online, a symbolic allusion to the inner self-hatred all 16-year-old 360 owners share
This thread is an insult to my intelligence.

#25 Edited by I_smell (3925 posts) -

360, because I'll be able to buy it and I wouldn't be able to buy a PS3 one.

Actually- Would the 360 one be cheaper cos it's not on Blu-Ray?

#26 Posted by RoninJack (12 posts) -

Hmmm errrr.... BTW. does anyone think that there will be even one prerendered cutscene in this game? I mean...  the trailer, the moment when whe can see combat, if game looks like this then there is no sense in making prerenderd cutscenes!

Is this topic meant as a joke topic in reply to Bodycount's stupid topic? Or is this just another stupid topic?

#29 Posted by Bodycount (72 posts) -

not at all, infact the 360 version will be better. nice try with the flamebait though.

#30 Posted by ReTarDedFisHy (1071 posts) -

ReTarDedFisHy thinks it'd be almost exactly the same except for multiple discs for the 360. PS3 may be a little better considering they've only just announced the 360 version. But hey, there's still plenty of time, so you never know ;D

#31 Posted by LightYagami245 (1117 posts) -

I think both will be good in different ways. The PS3 will not have to go through multiple discs, but the 360 will have achievements, which will add more replay value to the title. The 360 might also have DLC(if SE decides to do it).

#32 Posted by fenixREVOLUTION (735 posts) -

Isn't it a few months (maybe years?) too early for this topic.....I mean honestly.

#33 Posted by Ossi (1229 posts) -

Loading times and disc swapping will be the differences, everything else will be the same.

#34 Posted by Dj (913 posts) -

They will be the same. One will have achievements and one will have trophies. Take your pick.

Wow that's totally not a biased opinion. (sarcasm)
#37 Posted by Shotaro (820 posts) -

It will most likely be the same, if there is a difference it will be that the 360 version has more than one disc. That's pretty much the only potential dfference I can see.

#38 Posted by TheKreep (68 posts) -

I don't think there's been a PS-lead game that's been anything more than marginally worse on the 360.

#39 Posted by Moridin (717 posts) -

If anything, the 360 version might be split up into multiple discs. But big deal. At least now everyone will be able to enjoy the game regardless of console.

Console wars are over, kids. Get it through your heads.

#41 Posted by SmugDarkLoser (4619 posts) -

It'll be nearly identical like pretty much all games.
Unless we want to go all systemwarsey (gamespot) and count the missing pixels and shadows?

#42 Edited by Evilross (216 posts) -

The PS3 version will most likely have somewhat better graphic and sound fidelity do to compression (or lack thereof). PS3 version will come on one disc, and will probably require an install of some sort. PS3 version will almost certainly have faster load times. 360 version will probably ship on multiple discs. 360 version will probably not require an install, but may have an option for one to help with load times.
I don't own a 360 anymore, so I'll be playing this on the PS3 regardless, but i do believe this is a title that will be better on the PS3 to a noticable degree.
Either way, win for gamers. This one looks like a marked improvment over the last few. (8,10, 12 were snoozers IMO. 9 was alright, but not all that)

#43 Posted by NateDogg (465 posts) -

Because you posted in such a polite manner, i'm going to say that the 360 version will be better.

#44 Posted by Shygirlfrumfl (9 posts) -

I think they'll be the same no differences between both versions except 360 might have multiple discs other then that Im pretty sure there wont be any other differences between the versions.

#45 Posted by KingBroly (1645 posts) -

It amazes me that people think ports will be better.  But whatever floats your boat I guess.

#46 Posted by HiroSeven (215 posts) -

Disregarding the original poster's comments and just going off the title of the thread; Yeah it will be on multiple discs on the 360, but the end result (in a technical view) will have minor differences between the two platforms.

I trust that SE will work just as hard on the 360 version making graphical improvements where they can. I never like to sell them short, in my view they've worked hard on every game and I've thoroughly enjoyed every final fantasy (or others from SE) that I've played.

If I get a PS3 by that time, I might buy it for that system; if not then I'll get it on the 360. SE hasn't failed 'me' yet so I'm not worried.

#47 Edited by SmugDarkLoser (4619 posts) -

Once again, they're going to be the same.  Notice how pretty much all other games look the same?
Well considering how high profile this game is, I'm sure it'll be treated well on both.

And PS3 fanboys, by saying that the 360 version will suck (or vice versa), you're essentially saying that the developers suck, basically.  Not exactly something to be proud of
Edit: but the 360 version will come on multiple disks.  I don't think anyone has a problem with this.  I sort of like it, it makes the game feel more epicy.  Not a huge deal, but I did like having 4 disks in Lost Odyssey and 3 for blue dragon.

#48 Posted by SathingtonWaltz (2053 posts) -

I think that some people actually over-estimate the capabilities of the PS3. While I do agree that it's a more powerful machine, I don't think it's by a significant margin. I expect both versions to look the same.

Yeah. I think he is definitely a Sony fanboy.
#50 Posted by clubsandwich (3795 posts) -

I don't care, before, I didn't had the possibility of getting it because I don't have a PS3, now it will be on 360 as well so I don't care as long as i get it. :)
