Square Enix redefines overpriced with Final Fantasy XIII: Larger-than-Life Gallery

Final Fantasy XIII is the big thing going on in the console gaming world right now, so it isn't surprising that Square Enix wants to promote the game on iPhone and iPod touch too.

Artwork gallery app Final Fantasy XIII: Larger-than-Life Gallery does just that, but only if you pay the hefty viewing fee.

For a mere £5.49/$8.99/€6.99, you're granted access to a portfolio of rendered images and artwork spreads inspired by the console game.

If you're wondering what justifies the high price tag, Square Enix points to the multi-touch support that enables you to "experience the elaborative and extraordinary gallery details - from the minute lifelike detail of the eye colors and fingertips, to the beautifully designed and embellished outfits and accessories."

Don't forget the embedded calender and clock that count as premium propositions. You know, because those are features you don't already have on your device.

There are good reasons to get excited about Final Fantasy XIII, but an overpriced image gallery is certainly not among them. Download at your own risk.

Final Fantasy XIII: Larger-than-Life Gallery is available now for iPhone and iPod touch at a price of £5.49/$8.99/€6.99.

Surely this should be an iPad launch title?

Do you guys know what it takes to make artwork line that? That price is extremely cheap if they have the type of resolution it sounds like. It would only be worth it, however, if you could transfer the files for printing poster size.
