What is your favorite Final Fantasy game from the PS3/XBox 360 era?
Motomu Toriyama and Yoshinori Kitase's LIGHTNING RETURNS: FINAL FANTASY XIII has been released as its own dedicated app for iOS & Android devices. With this you can stream this amazing game to your smartphone or tablet. Today, I installed it on my smartphone and was quite impressed. I am using an Australian Internet connection which are years behind countries like Japan & the United States and despite this I was able to stream the game to my smartphone quite well. At times the graphics did go quite low but generally the game kept looking pretty good. At times I was blown away as the game looked stunning. The controls are stunning. The battle system works perfectly with the touch controls. Way better than a keyboard as I used for the PC port. However since my smartphone isn't that big some controls overlapped with each other but I managed to work around it easily. All audio was preserved and plays perfectly. The Android version runs pretty well on my smartphone so it must run really well in Japan. I hope to see the iOS & Android versions of the FINAL FANTASY XIII series released worldwide one day. 10/10

Motomu Toriyama and Yoshinori Kitase's LIGHTNING RETURNS: FINAL FANTASY XIII was released on Windows PC via Steam recently and I've checked out the port. I've already said it before but this is an amazing and very unique game that everyone should play through to completion. And while people might not have time, it's definitely a game you get to appreciate more after more time with it. It's definitely not for everyone but there are some great ideas here that you can have a lot of fun with. Everything was set against this game from the very start. It's an experimental sequel to two diverse games that saw critical acclaim in Japan. Legendary developers, Motomu Toriyama & Yoshinori Kitase, two people who have led the now diverse franchise through the start of the last 3 generations knew this was going to happen and I'm so glad they did it anyway. The game has sold over a million copies at retail alone easily making a profit for Square Enix. The port runs great. I was able to easily reach high frame rates and did not notice any low frame rates. The game also looks noticeably better than the PlayStation 3 version. Everything looks and sounds great. There are plenty of settings/options in regards to graphics and controls as well. You can also change the language between English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, Korean & Chinese for text. As for audio, English or Japanese. All of the DLC is included for free with the exception of the Aerith DLC. The Steam achievements are of course based off the PlayStation 3 trophies & Xbox 360 achievements. There's also Steam Trading Cards. After playing it for awhile I found myself wanting to play more. Haha. The Windows PC version of LIGHTNING RETURNS: FINAL FANTASY XIII is a great port, easily Square Enix's best yet and it doesn't cost much at all. 9/10
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII has now sold 1.01 million copies worldwide on PlayStation 3 alone not including digital. On Xbox 360 it has sold 0.22 million copies worldwide not including digital. That's a combined 1.23 million copies worldwide not including digital. And with the PC port coming in a few months it'll make Square Enix even more money going by the impressive sales of Final Fantasy XIII on Steam. Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster has now sold 1.19 million copies worldwide on PS3 and 0.68 million copies worldwide on PS Vita. That's a combined 1.87 million copies worldwide. Again, not including digital sales but we know for a fact this title topped the PlayStation Store sales charts in March 2014 and we also know it had sold over 500,000 copies in Japan alone in early December as it won an award for doing so. With a PlayStation 4 port and potential PC port on the way who knows what this HD collection will end up with. Important to remember FFX and FFX-2 were two of the highest selling games in Square Enix history on PS2. All numbers as of December 27, 2014. All numbers thanks to VGChartz.
