OSV Preview: Hamauzu's Final Fantasy XIII Soundtrack Not to Disappoint

The Final Fantasy XIII demo featured four pieces of music by composer Masashi Hamauzu. Included were tracks for regular battles and boss battles as well as a menu theme and a dungeon track. While Hamauzu's style has earned him many fans throughout his career at Square Enix, it has been considered less accessible than some other Final Fantasy composers in the past.

The soundtrack will be grand and masterful.Its quality will be unparalleled on the Playstation 3 version.The 360 version will be inferior because the 360 much like the Sega Genesis has the same graphics quality and sound chip.

They had to remove the soundtrack from the 360 port 'cause it wouldn't fit on the 13 DVD's. 360 owners will be playing the game with downgraded graphics and no sound.

i must admit that i was quite impressed with music, i didn't expect it to be on such a high level... i expected some jpop cliches, but this actually sounds good, themed, and mix of orchestra and band music which really reminds on uematsus work. Nice
