The demo for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is available for PS3 later today. It released on Xbox Live for Xbox 360 last week. Getting the demo also offers a weapon pack that unlocks when the full game releases Feb. 11.
I pulled the trigger on the Collector's Edition not too long ago for two reasons.
1) The Japanese gameplay videos show that between the exploration, character customization and battle system this is the game I wanted since the first Final Fantasy XIII.
2) I happen to love Final Fantasy VII which was basically my first Final Fantasy game. You bet your sweet ass I want that Aerith costume and staff.
The only major source of disapointment is the lack of a soundtrack for that price. I would gladly trade the "high quality" (I'm skeptical until it's in my hands) pocket watch for a full score of that beautiful music. I can't wait for this game!
