"60 hours or so" your first time through, and that's for videogamers in the know.
FFXIII director Motomu Toriyama revealed the number during a mag interview, and that's just "main story". Stock those snacks higher.

Final Fantasy XIII has been in development for three years, which is no surprise given its length. It's out this winter for PS3 in Japan, and heading West March 9th, 2010 for Xbox 360 and PS3. There's no mega install required for FFXIII, just 500kb for saves. Phew.
