What makes this interesting is not some singer playing the Xbox 360, but that this FFXIII promotion ad features footage off the game running off a TV screen and not direct feed footage.

But here you go, images of what is apparently the Xbox 360 version of Final Fantasy XIII on a television screen.

And as commenters have pointed out, there is a PS3 version of this clip as well — likewise with footage of the game running off a television. Wonder if these promo ads mean Square Enix will allow the photography of monitors running their games at E3 and TGS.... Probably not!

In Japan, Final Fantasy XIII has been released only on the PS3, while in the West the game will be released on both the PS3 and the Xbox 360.
