1UP’s posted what we think are the first impressions of the Xbox 360 build of Final Fantasy XIII, saying it “runs just as smoothly” as the PlayStation 3 version.

Here’s a blurb:

“It was therefore a pleasant surprise when I discovered FFXIII runs just as smoothly on 360 as it does on PS3. It’s a brisk, action-packed RPG with tons happening on the screen at any given time (and the series’ requisite flashy visuals cranked up to full throttle), yet I didn’t see a hint of slowdown or choppiness or screen tearing or any of the other visual hiccups that serve as hallmarks of a sloppy port. Admittedly, I didn’t see the two versions running side-by-side — the bus set them apart with a looping trailer dividing the kiosks — but I honestly saw no tangible difference from my time with the PS3 version.”

Go Xbox 360, etc.

The game releases on March 9 in the west for both PS3 and 360.

The game got a new trailer and screens last night.

The game’s now finished for Europe and US, according to director Motomu Toriyama.
