Back of FF13 Box Leaked, No Install & Lossless Audio for PS3 Version
November 26, 2009
What appears to be the back of the Final Fantasy XIII boxart over in Japan has leaked onto the web - and the image confirms some long-debated questions about the final release of the game.
Specifically, the back of the box states that the game has
No Optional or Mandatory install,
only using up
500kb of hard drive space
for a save game. This is great news for PS3 owners, and indicates that the game will run as smoothly as the demo did.
The image also confirms that the PS3 version will have super high quality
LPCM 5.1 audio
and the CGI sequences will be in
full 1080p HD
rather than the 720p that was feared.
While the game itself does run in 720p, this means the FMVs on PS3 will be of the highest possible quality. This may be the advantage PS3 will have over Xbox 360, as fitting lossless audio and large FMVs on a DVD will prove difficult.
Do bear in mind that this is an unconfirmed leak, so take the details on the image below with a pinch of salt!
We're trying to confirm it and will update if we do.
Final Fantasy XIII will be hitting Western stores in March next year. If you fancy taking control of Lightning and co this year you can
Preorder the region-free Japanese version from the guys over at Play-Asia.
