FFXIII A Much Better Fit On Blu-Ray; 360 Version Gimped Already

May 12, 2009Written by Anthony Severino


You have read our concerns over graphical differences between when FFXIII was a PS3 exclusive, and now that it is a multi-platform release.

But thanks to Blu-Ray, at least we don’t have to fret over the latest FFXIII bottleneck.  According to FFXIII producer Yoshinori Kitase, the Xbox 360 may only see English voiceovers because of the limited capacity per disc.  This issue is obviously not relevant to PS3 owners due to it using Blu-Ray as a format.

Obviously, when we talk about XIII it’s for PS3 and Xbox – with PS3 being on Blu ray there would be enough memory, but on Xbox probably not,” said Kitase. “At the moment we’re thinking of releasing the voice in English only. Are there many people who would like to play with Japanese voices?

As this generation of consoles heads into the future, I am quite sure we will see Blu-Ray becoming more and more of a necessity for developers who are unwilling to sacrifice their creative visions.
