FFXIII playable demo planned

There's rumored to be a playable demo of Square Enix's highly anticipated Final Fantasy XIII in the pipes for release to the PlayStation Network later on in the year.

Square Enix has yet to respond to the rumor, which originated in EGM, which says, "Xbox Live may be the download hotspot this spring (thanks in large part to the Halo 3 multiplayer demo), but late this year the honor will go to the PlayStation Network. We hear that Square Enix will release a demo of its highly anticipated role-playing game via Sony's online marketplace."

"I'm afraid I can't comment on the playable demo of FFXIII at present," a spokesperson at Square Enix said this afternoon.
