On Tuesday afternoon, 1UP took part in a roundtable interview with Yoshinori Kitase, producer in charge of Final Fantasy XIII, and Shinji Hashimoto, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Square Enix. While other journalists from two other outlets were present during the interview, the question and answers presented here were specifically asked by 1UP. So, if you see these questions repurposed elsewhere, you know where they came from.
1UP: Because of the difference in the storage media -- Blu-ray versus DVD -- will there be any compromises made to the Xbox 360 version in terms of the FMV quality or audio quality? Will you need to use different compression techniques?
YK: At this point, nothing's really been decided; that will be a process that takes place in the future, but for the difference between the hardware, we'll work on trying to find ways to compress the prerendered movies and voice that take up a lot of data in ways that don't affect the final product. As for the in-game visuals, we're going to look for ways to ensure that the quality remains the same between the two versions.
