The announcement was made during a press confenrence by Final Fantasy XIII Producer Yoshinori Kitase. According to him, there will be no major differnces between the three versions of the game. That will be up for Microsoft, Sony and their lobby for exclusive content, because those two are sure to ask for more in the near future:

"The content will be the same on all platforms," said Kitase. "However, we have yet to determine how many discs will be required for the 360 version. We’ll have to consider the differences between formats. Currently the game is being built on PC, where it’s actually functional. We’re still focusing on making it work on PS3, so it’s difficult to know how long the process of taking it to 360 will take."

"Now that we’re developing on a PC base, the pace is going a bit faster," Kitase said. "We haven’t introduced new footage of the game, but we should be able to show something new in the near future."

A console game heading for PC is good news. Some years ago many would’ve commented that the upcoming Final Fantasy XIII would turn out to be less than expected. After all, similar games had a similar fate. But let’s just hope it won’t be the case this time.
