PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Final Fantasy XIII side-by-side

By Daniel Chubb - Feb 1, 2010

In most circumstances, games on the Xbox 360 and Sony PS3 are almost the same graphically but this view will not be agreed with by some gamers that are not open minded. Yesterday, Sankaku Complex reported that Final Fantasy XIII’s Xbox 360 graphics are said to be “Inferior to PS3″.

Final Fantasy XIII has been tested side-by-side with the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions. Players, game journalists, and developers have all given opinions after having some gameplay time. Sankaku Complex said in their article that players find the PlayStation 3 version better, quoting one person who said that they “know it’s DVD vs. BD” but they did not expect the graphic difference to be “noticeable”.

Does the Xbox 360 being DVD really matter? This question has been raised over and over; although it’s a fact that DVD is faster than Blu-ray and many DVDs may need to be used when one Blu-ray would be sufficient. But should this really affect graphics?

The website also quotes a game journalist who apparently said that both the 360 and PS3 versions were shown side-by-side, and that the “360 version was noticeably less crisp”. You can read more on this in their article here, and also what developers recently said.
