I couldn't care if it had X-2 on it. As far as I'm concerned that game didn't exist.

X was one of my favourites, but the sequel was just pure awful.

X-2 is still better than XIII, XIJI,2 and Lightning returns
-MD-  +   1057d ago
You've played Lightning Returns?
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   1057d ago
oooo no, no it wasnt.

@ MD at some point bad things wont ever be good. FF XIII series (not including versus) is one of those games. These two games basically made me turn to tales as my go to JRPG franchise. Yeah they are that bad. But with this KH 1.5 and possibly including X-2 with X i'm hoping square realizes we dont want a western style rpg's in our FF.

@-MD- I haven't played it, but I can tell by the trailers it doesn't look good. I hope I'm wrong, but man those videos of it are bad...
pecorre  +   1057d ago
X-2 is IMO the worst FF game ever made. I hope it's not included.

The international versions have so much extra content. If this is true I wouldn't think twice before buying this. I've always wanted to play those international versions. I put in over 180 hrs into FFX and to think there's more to unlock in the international versions is exciting. As for FFX-2, I wish we would've had a jrpg half this good this gen. It shows how much jrpgs have fallen. This game was once considered average, but it's great compared to most jrpgs we play today.
TopDudeMan  +   1057d ago
You're right. Standards have definitely slipped.
DOMination-  +   1057d ago
FFX in MY opinion was just a fairly average game as well. I know it might be an unpopular opinion but... FFX had abysmal voice acting, which I let off only because it was one of the first JRPGs to have it - they really should be re-recording the dialogue though. Apart from that, it had a poor lead character, a terrible and hard to follow story, corridor-linearity between towns that frankly was just as bad as FFXIII, no explorable world map, tedious side quests.

It had some excellent things too. The battle system was great, I liked the Al-bhed language, blitzball, the sphere grid mainly was pretty good, being able to go higher than 9999HP, etc. But there was more bad than good, just not up to the standard of 6-9 imo.

As for X-2 - I only played the first few missions and got bored. Maybe there's a good game in there somewhere but it didn't entice me enough to play it more. A nice bonus if it's thrown in for free though, you can't argue with that.

FFX had branched maps while FF13 was literally a tube so the linearity is nowhere near the same. On top of that FFX has more diverse side-quests (for aeons and weapons), backtracking, exploration, towns, NPC's, shops, better customization, etc. So on that point you couldn't be more wrong. That it wasn't as open as FF7,8,9? True but FF13 was way more linear than FFX.

"FFX had abysmal voice acting."

No it didn't. It had a few awkward moments but to say that it had abysmal voice acting is an exaggeration.

"it had a poor lead character."

Your opinion. I thought that Tidus was a welcome change from the panzy ass Cloud and the mostly stoic yet eventually complex Squall. Zidane was a better lead for sure, but Tidus was a close second in terms of personality. Cecil Harvey is still the best lead character in the series.

"a terrible and hard to follow story."

The story was NOT terrible. And what was hard to follow? It was pretty much all laid out before you.

"corridor-linearity between towns that frankly was just as bad as FFXIII"

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! !! You either didn't play FFXIII or you're just lying. FFX may be "linear" but you could explore each area, talk to people, play Blitzball any time you wanted. These things made the game feel like it wasn't linear unless you put a strict focus on looking for it to be.

"no explorable world map, tedious side quests."

Airship and Blitzball. Plus, since side quests are completely optional, you can't say they are really tedious because you have a choice if you want to do them or not. And the Battle Arena was NOT tedious.

Geez, sometimes the FF naysayers sound like they are reading from a script of pre-approved negative things to say about FFVIII, and FFX.
-Gespenst-  +   1057d ago
Oh you're so macho and serious and cool (sarcasm)

X-2 is a really good game. Excellent music, intriguing plot, and super fun battle system, and it was a joy to return to Spira.

Plus if it's the international version it might have Yadanoki Tower, been waiting years to play that.
DragonKnight  +   1057d ago
The original idea for X-2 would have been better though. They were originally going to go for a Braska/Auron/Jecht prequel.
TopDudeMan  +   1057d ago
@Dragon, that would have been much better.
-Gespenst-  +   1057d ago
Never heard of that. Don't suppose you could provide a link?

It's a good idea though. Maybe they'll actually do it some day if these HD versions conjure up enough re-hype. I'f definitely play that.

I still really like X-2 though.
BlaqMagiq24  +   1057d ago
I'm guessin this would be the reason why it's taking so long. At least I hope it is. I would love to have both of these in a collection. I'll give Square a little respect if this is true.
Wizziokid  +   1057d ago
I never played X-2, it never interested my as much as I loved X but I may give it a try if this is true.
contradictory  +   1057d ago
go expecting alot of
"WHY???" in X-2

it's not that bad considering it's a bonus on FF X HD
LAWSON72  +   1057d ago
I know x2 aint very liked but who can complain about more especially when this was going to be overpriced anyway.
j-blaze  +   1057d ago
god i hope so!!

And this, is what messes everything up for vita. First it was peace walker HD, now, is this game.

Heck, ill go even further to say that remasters like these shouldnt even be available on the ps3 to begin with. These remasters(Persona 4 golden, FFX, and Kingdom hearts remix HD) should only be available on the vita, you know to give more people and incentive to buy into the platform.
BlaqMagiq24  +   1057d ago
Why should it just be on Vita? There are still people who would buy it for on the go even if it was released on PS3. If they were to release it for just Vita they would suffer a huge backlash from fans and people are already pissed off with them as it is.
torchic  +   1057d ago
this "everything must be on Vita" campaign going on here on n4g is so annoying.

it's a great system no doubt but why must EVERYTHING on PS3 be on Vita? Vita needs exclusives built from the ground up with Vita in mind, not ports.
Inception  +   1057d ago
Hey dude supremacy, i lost my PS2 & copies of FF X, Persona 4, Kingdom Hearts, MGS 1-3, DMC 1-3, ZoE, and more because some fire accident in my house years ago. I don't have vita (plan to buy it this holiday) and my PS3 doesn't have BC. So these HD remasters are 'helping' me with my limited budget condition. If you think these HD remaster shouldn't exist on PS3 than keep that bull to yourself!

X-2 is the game that made me lose interest in final fantasy then to top it off they released 11 as an mmo -__- since then I never bothered to check out another final fantasy game. Take x-2 back square and remake 12. I didn't get the chance to play it..12 looks to be the only decent one since 10.

X-2 isn't bad but I agree they should remake 12
The Great Melon  +   1057d ago
X-2 was meant to be somewhat lighter in terms of story, but functionally it's pretty good.
Mr_Writer85  +   1057d ago
If this is the reason why its taking so long I would not be impressed.
Skate-AK  +   1057d ago
I played a lot of X-2. I've never even played X so this is a bonus.
josephayal  +   1057d ago
People will buy both versions
FF X-2 on PS3 and FF 12 on Xbox 360
leahcim  +   1057d ago
X-2 was awesome to me
chikane  +   1057d ago
hope is true i love ff x-2 still play it even today on the ps2
ps3_pwns  +   1057d ago
only on the playstations for those who thought they can get japanese games without the japanese console. cant wait to get this and the difinitive KH collection. KH3 will be on the ps4 as well so better not make a wrong choice on which console to get guys.
Neko_Mega  +   1057d ago
Both on the same disc wouldn't be a shock, but it be nice if they come with the gun controllers that came with the game when it first came out.
Dagobert  +   1057d ago
Is there a way Square Enix could undo X-2? Seriously that just ruined the awesome storyline of X. I liked how X ended, pretty dramatic and emotional, and then you have X-2 which was made to cheer some emotional twats up or some shit.
wishingW3L  +   1057d ago
lol at people saying that FFX-2 was a good game. Being a fanboy of something is being delusional I see. =|

X-2's battle system was awesome... And the story eventually straightened out.

I like it more than some main FF titles.
Sue me.

it would be nice if both games get cloud saves between PS vita/PS3.
stragomccloud  +   1054d ago
I hope they include the original Japanese audio.
I liked most of the dub, but Yuna was just terrible!

Maybe they'll release an asian version in the HK market with Japanese audio and english subtitles/menus like they did with XIII and XIII-2.
