NieR PS3 vs Xbox 360, or East vs West?

nier-ps3-vs-xbox-360

Some rather bold differences in character design between the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Square Enix’s new “NieR” franchise have been noticed.

With the PS3 version apparently having effete character designs and even a hermaphrodite heroine, Square appears to be making an unsubtle, perhaps even crude, bet on the demographics of each market, with the Xbox 360 version in their eyes most probably the “American” version.

Just whether this bet pays off will be interesting to behold…
