When Final Fantasy XIII went multiplatform, the Sony fans were heard to yell, "but FF is associated with PlayStation! More PlayStation owners will want it!" Well, it's probably fair to say that just about everyone wants this game, but this sentiment does ring true to some extent.
In a recent set of data provided by research group OTX and presented by Gamasutra , we learn about the top 20 most anticipated titles for both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 owners (click link at bottom for the 360 stats). As you can see, #1 on the PS3 owner's list is FFXIII, while it's only at #4 on the 360 owners' list, well behind the likes of Halo 3: ODST and Modern Warfare 2 . A graph shows off the pre-order intent for each top 20 list, too, and it's interesting to note that only one IP is found on either assembly of most anticipated games: Sucker Punch's inFamous , a PS3 exclusive scheduled to drop in early June. Also, we should point out that God of War III is pretty darn close to FFXIII; here's the Top 20 most anticipated games for PS3 owners according to the OTX results:
The fact that X-Men Origins: Wolverine is higher than Uncharted 2: Among Thieves makes us wonder who took this poll, and we figure one glaring omission may be Quantic Dream's Heavy Rain , but that has fallen out of the limelight since its impressive unveiling last year. Hopefully, we'll see more at E3.
