Yoshinori Kitase Praises PlayStation 3

The producer of RPG epic Final Fantasy XIII, Yoshinori Kitase, has praised the PlayStation 3 hardware which he claims “helped envision” the RPG.

In an interview with the PS Blog, the producer spoke about how the PS3 helped envision FFXIII.

The PS3 is definitely a spectacular machine and the team was really able to realize its visions for the characters and graphics, and at the same time, were able to have big onscreen battles going on. The PS3 hardware was something that really helped envision the game.

When asked about future DLC:

In regard to the rumored cut content, we feel it was taken out of context. There are a lot of ideas that are brought to the table, and then the team takes the best ideas out of those, and the final product is polished that way. There was content that were ‘ideas’ that didn’t make the final content, but the team isn’t looking to release that as downloadable content.

Final Fantasy XIII has a Western release of March 9, 2010.
