Default Final Fantasy special edition Xbox = disappointing



They didn't even make a special case for it or anything. It appears that they just put a 250GB drive on an arcade and gave you the game and some controllers. No faceplate, no custom case, nothing.

I don't know how that is a special edition at all.

With that said, I wouldn't have bought it anyway.

Well, it does say "Final Fantasy XIII" on the silver part of the hard drive...

But yeah, that's pretty lame. Why again do we need 2 controllers when the pack-in game is a single player game?

Did you mean this for smackdown?

Apparently, there is a special FFXIII faceplate that will be available when you pre-order.. haven't heard the details though.

Don't quote me on this, but I'm pretty sure the console plays other games too... we'll have to wait for official word from Microsoft..

Do people have to pay extra for the faceplate?

If I had to choose, I'd take the FFXIII PS3 over it, from a design standpoint. But the 360 bundle comes with an extra controller in addition to the game and a giant harddrive.

I don't think so, Major Nelson said something like "pre-order bonus with details to follow"

I agree with you that some FFXIII design should have been standard though..

Gee thanks for the info.

And someone buying just the bundle would use the second controller for....? I'm sure it will affect the overall price of the bundle as MS isn't likely to include it for free.

That'd be a big plus. It wouldn't be cool if they tried to make people pay extra for the faceplate. It would probably sell better if they made it clear that people were going to get the faceplate, but it would sell even better if the case was custom painted like the COD edition.
