"I was lucky enough to get the chance to check out Final Fantasy XIII in action on the PS3 yesterday, as well as speak with director Motomu Toriyama & producer Yoshinori Kitase.
Well, I got to check it out eventually.
I was kept waiting for over 30 minutes thanks to an insane level of security surrounding the game's demo disc, which had to be fetched by a Square Enix employee from Sony - who had it under lock & key - and then personally escorted from one end of the convention centre to the other.
And when he eventually got there? Yup. Firmware update."
