    I'm special, I have both systems, but can't decide which system to use. I play my 360 endlessly lately, but I have a PS3 just gathering dust.

    Help me decide.

    If you don't care for achievements or talking to your friends on your 360 you might as well get the PS3 version. It seems like its better.

    PS3. No brainer on this one, especially if you have both systems. I personally got it on none. I'll pick it up after I hear more reviews from folks here.

    if you want the game, and have a PS3 and 360, there's no reason to even consider the 360 version.

    well, unless you like blotchy FMVs, lower resolution textures, and lower resolution. some people might.

    Yea, I'm surprised there's even a question on this one.

    PS3 all the way.

    buy the ps3 version and pirate the 360 version :p 

    There isn't any real difference in terms of quality between the two from what I've heard, though I find 360 games to have a more vibrant look to them, so I would say get the 360 version unless there is a particular reason to get the ps3 edition

    edit:

    ok, gamespot says that the xbox version is lower resolution I guess, so maybe ps3 is the better choice

    PS3.

    Final Fantasy XIII, Bayonetta, Okami, I tend to think games are at least slightly better on the systems they were originally developed for (not counting legitimate multi-platform releases or special editions that can be released later on).

    I too have the multi-system option and I'm gonna go PS3.

    gameplay is the same on both, but visually, the 360 is pretty damn inferior to the PS3 version. which makes sense, it was built for the PS3. the FMVs are one of the biggest differences. the storage space of blu ray ensures the picture quality is always crisp and detailed, the 360 version is splotchy, has artificating, and loses a lot of detail when things are moving around.

    Not that the 360 version is garbage or anything, but the game costs the same amount on both systems, he has both systems, it'd be stupid to not get the one that looks the best.

    This is exactly the reason I might not get FF13. I don't have a PS3, but the fact I know I'll be watching crappy FMV with compression artifacts... urgh. It really detracted (well, not 'really', but enough) from my Dragonage and ME2 games.

    Miscrosoft should just bite the bullet already and licence Blu Ray drives for the 360... (like thats ever gonna happen).

    GET IT FOR THE WII AND WIGGLE YOUR WAY TO VICTORY

    PS3 is obvious choice in this case unless you really hate the controller.

    Why would you want to swap discs? That's the only real question you have to ask yourself. Other than why you'd want to play a game with such terrible VO.

    PS3, other than the things everyone else has already mentioned, you know you can sit there and play it all you want and not have to worry about a "red ring" down the road.
