Not really, both consoles are quite comparable. Many cross platform developers have said as such, it is generally only those with vested interests that say otherwise.

Interesting interpretation, I'd characterize it as they put significant development time into the ps3 version and did a shoddy port to the 360.

It is much bigger than Halo or any other "big" game you can think of for any system. This is the ultimate franchise in the console world when looked at in a world-wide perspective.
Is it bigger than Halo? By sales?

WoW has a membership base of 10+ million (not including China), while FF has a large fan base I'm doubtful it will eclipse WoW. We can check sales numbers after the release.
