Recent news that confirms Xbox 360 version of Final Fantasy XIII-2 to chalk up only three DVD discs has made quite a buzz in the internet.
The first game which has been released in North America last year took up three discs on Microsoft’s Xbox 360.
Director Motomu Toriyama has told Famitsu that disc space was saved in the sequel due to the increased use of real-time event scenes, whereas the first game had heavy CGI usage.
It is still unknown whether the optimization on CGIs would indirectly affect the quality on both Xbox 360 and PS3 but since the latter has a bigger disc size in the form of Blu-ray, it should no problem to capitalize any more free space.
In Final Fantasy XIII, we can see the comparison been made on both high-definition consoles by IGN.
Square promises intense scenes in Final Fantasy XIII-2, though not necessarily on the same level as Type-0‘s scenes.
The sequel also features Caius as the game’s primary antagonist — the purple-haired fellow we’ve seen Lightning goes head-to-head in past trailers. He’s a threat to both Valhalla and Serah’s world.
