Is it worth getting the PS3 version over the 360 one?
Xbox version has achievements.
PS3 does not have trophies, but added content like 2 additional characters/added events/costumes.

I played the PS3 version. I haven't looked into it, but if the "extra characters" mentioned above fall into the categories I'm thinking of, you probably won't use them anyway because they show up or become playable very late in the game. That said, I had no complaints about the PS3 version and I don't really care about trophies. In fact, I find them distracting sometimes in a story-heavy game.
In short, definitely worth $15 if you're a fan of JRPGs or even classical music.

The PS3 version is the better off the two, but nothing major. It does add a few extra characters (though not significant) and outfits as others have said. It also gives the game an upgrade graphically. The game looks sharper on the PS3, and you'll see character clothing having more detail than the xbox version. They also did some tweaks to the story adding in some details to make certain elements make more sense while also adding to the overall theme. All the tweaks are pretty minor to the overall game so if you play the Xbox version you won't be left regretting not getting the PS3 or something. The Xbox achievements are also pretty easy to get so if you are into that.
