FFXIII Not Native 1080p

You might have heard elsewhere on the web this morning that the Final Fantasy XIII playable demo (which comes with the Advent Children Blu-ray in Japan) runs in native 1080p. This isn’t strictly true: the cutscenes are 1080p, but the actual game itself is upscaled 720p. Still, this is the game as it was back in December, so there’s still time for the gameplay to be running at a native 1080p when the full game finally launches. The demo itself is pretty cool, albeit quite limited in scope, with some neat new changes to how the battle system works, namely free magic and a tweaked action bar, we’ll try and get a full hands on for you a little later.
