While yes, a multiplatform game may look similar on either platform, a game, designed and built around the strengths/weaknesses of a specific platform, will almost always have more resources available to get everything out of that machine.
Look at what Squenix pulled out of the PS2 for FFXII, that looked amazing. I'm pretty sure if they had to develop it for both the PS2 and Xbox, it wouldn't have been the same technical marvel.
Gameplay etc. is likely going to be awesome regardless, but if designed simultaneously for both systems, I can only imagine that the overall polish will diminish slightly.
Will it still be better polished than almost anything else? Yeah, probably....but it might not be polished to the same brilliance it could have been and that is what I fear.
I bought a PS3 because of MGS4 and FFXIII. I bought a PS1 for FFVII. I don't care what system an FF comes out for, just that the game doesn't end up compromised because they tried to make it for everyone instead of sticking to one platform and getting everything they could out of it.
