Default Re: Final Fantasy XIII on X360 gimped.

No wonder Square Enix decided not to build their own engine in the future and stick with Unreal Engine 3 to speed up the development as well go multi-platform with future games.

But really, it depends on games looking best on either- most ports tend to look better on XBOX 360 but PS3 certainly has some best looking games like Uncharted 2.

There is a wrong notion among many that 360 has better graphics or multi-platform. The main reason is 360 is like mid-range PC and easy to make games where as PS3 is more complicated. I do not think there is any multi-platform games for some years now having bad graphics on PS3. 99% they are same with very little differences. I have read that Bayonetta is not same as 360 and that is mainly due to developers not doing a good job with PS3.

team ninja producer Hitoshi Hasegawa said PS3 is most powerful console

For any developer that's been working on all of the platforms that are available today, I think they would agree that the PlayStation 3 is the most powerful system out there.
full interview here the above quote is taken from 2nd page. NGS and NGS2 are better ninja games than 360 hehe ...
