Eagle-eyed fans have called out Square Enix for releasing “fake” screenshots of the Xbox 360 version of Final Fantasy XIII-2.
Unofficial Final Fantasy Site spotted two seemingly identical FFXIII-2 screenshots: an Xbox 360 version included in Square Enix’s E3 asset release, and a PlayStation 3 version posted in Famitsu as well as seeing general release on the game’s website.
Seen side by side, it’s hard to believe both were live captured from their respective consoles, as opposed to, you know, having certain elements altered.
Square Enix has admitted to screenshot shenanigans in the past, mistakenly releasing identical Final Fantasy XIII screenshots with differing console key prompts ‘shopped in.
The two console versions of Final Fantasy XIII turned out to harbour noticeable graphical performances.
Final Fantasy XIII-2 is due for Japanese release in December, with Western release in the first quarter of 2012, on both major consoles.
