Lightning Returns Final Fantasy XIII PS3 vs Xbox 360 Screenshots Comparison

Lightning Returns Final Fantasy XIII has been out on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 for a while now in Japan. How does the game compare on both of these platforms? We have compared direct-feed screenshots from both versions of the game to give you a general idea of what to expect from both platforms.

Final Fantasy XIII was the first true mainline multiplatform Final Fantasy, that wasn’t an MMO. The Xbox 360 version always seemed like an afterthought and as a result, didn’t compare well to its PlayStation 3 counterpart. It also had issues with its frame rate and graphics compared to PlayStation 3.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 was perhaps the first game, that was announced simultaneously for both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and when it comes to parity between both platforms, it seemed like the Xbox 360 held pretty well on its own and had next to none in term of graphical difference. Still, the PlayStation 3 version fared better with a smoother frame rate compared to Xbox 360. Now that we have gotten the last part in the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy, it is interesting to see that Square Enix has finally mastered both platforms and created a version that is well made on either platform. Even the frame rate seems to be much stable now on Xbox 360.

The game has yet to release in the states but it has already gotten a release in Japan on both platforms. We have got our hands on direct-feed screens of both version of the game, which are good enough to have a decent idea of how they look on both platforms. Check them out below.
