First Final Fantasy XIII demo to be PS3 exclusive


Were you one of the many PS3 owners who felt betrayed by Square Enix’s decision to port the game to the Xbox 360? Worry not, scorned gamer, because Squenix still has your back—kinda.

The very first playable demo of Final Fantasy XIII will be packaged with Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete, which is a Blu-ray release. So, buy the movie, which wasn’t too bad, and get a playable demo of the game. Things could be worse, fellas.

The movie currently has a March, 2009 release date. That’s for Japan, mind you, as a U.S. release date hasn’t been announced yet.

In the meantime, Squenix fans, why not put your DS to good use, and play all those re-releases the company has been coming out with every 20 minutes? Now would be a good time to finish Final Fantasy IV, for example.
