Yoshinori Kitase, producer of Square Enix‘s upcoming Final Fantasy XIII, has recently stated that they will not release a Blu-ray demo of the game outside of Japan, where it was bundled with Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete.
â€œThe type of demo version we released in Japan, we currently have no plan of doing that abroad, partly because we are going to carry on with the project alongside the Xbox version, so we really can’t just make it available only for the PS3.
â€œBut we hear that the demo version normally means something that you can download in the West, so that is a possibility we would like to check.â€
Surely a downloadable demo would be nice, but I find Kitase’s statement to be a bit illogical. They’ve released plenty of things here only for Xbox 360. The PlayStation Network has still yet to receive Castle Crashers and the console’s still yet to receive The Last Remnant. I don’t see why an exclusive demo would be the problem.
