Final Fantasy XIII Ideal vs Actuality

Sharp-eyed observers can’t help but notice that upcoming blockbuster RPG Final Fantasy XIII’s graphics seem to have suffered a substantial degradation since the first promotional shots were released.

Now shots of the game are looking distinctly polygonal…

Originals are above, later shots below:

Of course, nobody believes promotional images for games, but even so this is slightly disappointing. Fans can take solace in the high quality of female anatomy on offer

The game is due in Japan in the winter, as a “PS3 exclusive.” The delayed international release will include an Xbox 360 version.
