XBox Japan 'Accidentally' Uploaded Final Fantasy XIII Page 200°
June 12, 2009 // 12:16 am - In the West, Final Fantasy XIII is a multi-platform titles, announced for the PS3 and the Xbox 360. In Japan, it is not. Something that makes this Xbox Japan Web site image perplexing.

Square Enix and Sony have been cross prompting PS3-only-in-Japan FFXIII with the game's demo appearing on the Blu-ray version of Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete.
