Final Fantasy XIII uses "100%" of PS3's power

But next month's demo uses only 50 percent...

Final Fantasy XIII will use "nearly 100%" of the PlayStation 3's hardware power, Square Enix producer Yoshinori Kitase has claimed.

When asked how much of the PS3's tech muscle FFXIII will make use of, Kitase told Japanese mag Dengeki PlayStation 3, "doesn't the demo use about 50 percent of its power? Of course, I think the retail version will make use of nearly 100 percent."


The producer added that there won't be any disc swap issues on the PS3 version (there's no 360 release planned for Japan) due to Blu-ray and the console's hard drive.

The FFXIII demo is due to ship with the Advent Children Blu-ray release in Japan on April 16. Development on the trial was finished last year, says Kitase.

"The game's development is currently going well," he said of the final game "We are finishing up the tail end of the development."

We wonder if it'll use 100% of the Xbox 360's power too? If it's only 99%, we're definitely buying the PS3 version.
