In-Engine Video: PS3 = 720p | Xbox 360 = 576p
Realtime: PS3 = 720p | Xbox 360 = 576p
Apart from generally reducing clarity, 576p resolution of realtime graphics blown up to 720 or 1080p increases visibility of aliasing (jaggies) despite the extra blurriness over the whole image.
PS3: 1 dual-layer (50GB capacity) Blu-ray Disc
Xbox 360: 3 dual-layer (6.8GB capacity) DVD’s stacked on one spindle
The PS3 version requires no pre-installation, automatically background-caches to the harddisc and rarely shows it’s loading. Without performing an optional install before playing on Xbox 360 (18GB, DVD swaps still needed), transitions from video to realtime graphics have a delay and other loads are lengthier.
As for sound output options:
PS3: LPCM / DTS / Dolby Digital 5.1
Xbox 360: Dolby Digital 5.1 only
Could this be the reason behind Square Enix’s recent FFXIII photoshop fiasco?
