Action Trip writes: 'The Final Fantasy series has been around for a long, long time - well, since 1987, when the very first FF game appeared on the NES. In all that time, the game had a staggering amount of sequels, add-ons and spin-offs, probably more than any other game license out there. The popularity of the franchise is still great. Given the series' good reputation, expectations were definitely high when Square Enix announced they'd bring Final Fantasy XIII to consoles. The announcement was made 4 years ago and the game eventually made it to both PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms.'
