It’s weird how the dashboard store never updates the backwards compatible titles. COD 3 (I think) and the cartel are still listed as the newest title in on my system. I have to search for other titles to find them.

I was a bit worried because FFXIII on 360 had poor video encoding (and theres a lot of video in this thats why its 30gb compared to like 7 and 8 for the other 2)but the video encoding looks very good! ported from the pc maybe? sharp visuals, UI looks pixelated but otherwise looks great! gotta check out 2 and 3 next.

EDIT - they all look and run well

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

Waiting on some digital foundry analysis for XIII to make my work day go smoother

I was 17 hours into XIII-2 when I stopped playing it in 2014 and I’m lost as hell right now. Lol.

Just jumping from gate to gate trying to figure where I was and picking up fragments as I spot them.

This was not the best game to drop partway through and think I could just pick up where I left off.

What they did is amazing. The video is clearly been reencoded, it looks like a 1080p BR upscaled in 4K, it's a massive improvement over the 360 version. Otherwise, in game it looks pretty sharp and clean. The only thing is the UI, it's a little blurry but it's OK. I have yet to try XIII-2 and LR.

Yes, it looks like Square replaced the FMVs. This game, XIII, had never been released digitally before, maybe for the digital version they used the same files as the PS3 version. The videos look really good.

I loved FFXIII. I never finished XIII-2 because my PC (at the time it came out on PC) wasn't up to the task of running the game smoothly.

I'm going to put the whole trilogy on my "need to play this soon" pile. These visual updates and better cutscenes got me giddy.

Hoping Lightning Returns goes in sale for Black Friday, as it’s the only one I don’t own, but if the price is right I might just pick up the entire trilogy digitally and World of FF as a way to show Square my appreciation.
