Holy. Fucking. Shit. This generation of console wars is officially over, and it’s a tie, because Square Enix says that Final Fantasy XIII?whose trailer above made me actually lick my computer monitor in lust?is coming to the Xbox 360. There’s now absolutely zero big exclusive games that should be swaying people to the PS3’s side, and despite the fact that I’ve been a big Sony apologist, the I have to admit the Xbox is cheaper and has Live.
Alas, poor Sony?as it turns out, you shouldn’t have made your little so fucking expensive and expected us all to buy it without hesitation. Oh, yeah?this doesn’t count for Japan, where it appears that Final Fantasy XIII is still a PS3 exclusive. But that’s like making it a PS3 exclusive in Antarctica, which probably has the same number of Xbox 360 owners as Japan.

Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
