Final Fantasy XIII on sale today

PS3 and 360 RPG hits elves. Shelves.

Square Enix has sent out a reminder that Final Fantasy XIII goes on sale in the US and Europe today on PS3 and Xbox 360.

The European versions of games usually hit the shelves on Fridays, so it seems sensible to pass on the reminder. Consider yourself reminded.

Final Fantasy XIII sees players thrown into conflict in the floating utopia of Cocoon, where all sorts of s*** goes down.

Check out our whopping Final Fantasy XIII review for an explanation. We gave it 8/10 in the end.
