Final Fantasy is what I call an unofficial Sony franchise. It's not made by Sony but most people affiliate Sony with Final Fantasy. This sale is vey fitting.

I started playing Final Fantasy on NES and SUPER NES... you sound really stupid to me.

He's just trying to say that most Sony fans are also final fantasy fans. Where Nintendo fans are w Mario and Zelda.

The peak of final fantasy is w ps1 and ps2. Not Nintendo or even ps3.

Though if it wasn't for the ps3. Final fantasy would of been dead by now or in worst situation than the current state its in. Imagine final fantasy releasing only on Xbox this generation.

CatXFlash, calm your fanboy-nipples.

I understand what he means, just as Solid Snake and Big Boss can feel 'Sony-Franchise' and yet the games were originally on MSX and is on Xbox and 360 and PS1/PS2/PS3...

FF7, FF8, FF9. FFX, X-2, were PS-Exclusive, Square and Sony were bros back then and after FF7 was when the FF-BOOM happened. FF6 still cherished by fans, but it wasn't responsible for the FF-Boom....Aka. The best of the FF-Boom happens On the Playstations.

PlayStation. No need to go there and call him names either. Have some respect.

FF7 and FF8 were not PS-Exclusive. They both got PC release one year after the PS release. They had smother and enhanced graphics, better audio in places, and in FF7's case a revised script fixing most of the spelling errors etc. and FF8 PC even included the Chocobo World mini-game that you otherwise couldn't play outside of Japan due to them not releasing the Pocket Station in the west.

Much like anything there is a split in the fanbase and people involved, those that grew up with the later games would see Sony as being the home of Final Fantasy. But those that grew up with all the earlier ones were shocked when it made the switch, especially since they had shown off a tech demo to showcase what the "next" Final Fantasy would have looked like on the Nintendo 64. So some still consider Nintendo as the home of the series and what got it started in the first place. Its a tough call to make between the two.

@TenkoTAiLs - Even if so, that FF7 and FF8 went PC, it went as you said 1 year later....and many people honestly prefer the music from the PS1-quality than the PC version. Sometimes, older-styled music sounds better like RPG music from Earthbound/Mother series compared to music of recent or any other RPG of recent generations.

But that still stands by my point that even if FF7 and FF8, they're still 99% seen as Playstation games, they got their FF boom because of them being released on the console and showcasing what the consoles of that time could handle, and what the CD-Disc could handle, it wasn't about whether or not it ported to PC really :L

@Mounce
There is no need to jump on the defensive, i was just explaining that those two games aren't exclusive to the Playstation. I was also just stating the differences, i prefer the final "One-winged Angel" music from the PSX myself too >.<

Also on your last comment it would be more accurate to say it showcased what CD-Rom tech could do (even tho it took 3 of them), because the N64 was actually superior tech wise in almost every other aspect. Try comparing a clean pic of the original Conker's Bad Fur Day to a clean pic of FF9 in all its jaggyness and you can see the big graphical difference.

In saying that tho the PSX had the games and the devs behind it to back it more than Nintendo did, the PSX was a great machine. I still have mine under the bed somewhere haha.

u wouldnt have gotten so many disagrees if you didnt add "you sound really stupid"
tommygunzII  +   736d ago
Don't forget what may be the best in the franchise, FFXII was PS exclusive.
CalvinKlein  +   738d ago
Aww crap, I just bought FF9 a few days ago. Its ok tho, because i really like it. I was unsure because I loved 7 but not 8 or 10 so much. So far 9 has mee hooked and it was worth full price to me.
hot4play  +   738d ago
FF9 is definitely worth it. Its also my fav PS1-era FF. In fact, im playing it right now on my Vita. (never gets old)
IAMERROR  +   738d ago
Actually I'm pretty sure it's a Square franchise! lol
But seriously it's silly to argue over things like this
Canary  +   737d ago
Let's see... the definitive versions of FF1 and FF2 are both on the GBA.

The definitive version of FF3 is on the NDS, but was ported to the PSP.

Definitive version of FF4 is on the PSP.

Definitive version of FF5 is on SNES.
Definitive version of FF6 is on GBA

VII-IX's definitive versions were on PS1.

X and XII were PS2-only.

XI's definitive version was PC.

XIII's definitive version, such that it was, was PS3.

FFXIV's definitive version, such that it was, was PC.

Final Fantasy titles are all across the board. Given how many times the older titles have been ported, I don't think it's a stretch to say that Nintendo hardware has been the home of the franchise moreso than any other brand.

(Speaking solely of main-series releases).

It is worth noting, however, that the Sony PS3 is unique in that it can (theoretically) play EVERY Final Fantasy game, aside from FF3 and FF4. So it's not entirely wrong to associate the series more with Sony than Nintendo... but, as is the case with virtually all of Squaresoft's games, the PS1 ports are drastically inferior to the SNES originals and/or GBA remakes.

Would much rather prefer another Atlus sale. Their games stand the test of time and they have stories that are relevant to everyday life/issues while still being in a fantasy realm.
Y_5150  +   738d ago
Yeah I still want to buy Catherine just for the story alone!
Blastoise  +   738d ago
Might get Final fantasy VI. Wack it on my Vita
Son_Lee  +   738d ago
I always whack it on my Vita.
Higgs1  +   738d ago
Isn't this for EU only?
Godchild1020  +   738d ago
Yes, it is. I can only hope those of us in NA can get some (real) Final fantasy love too.

porkChop  +   738d ago
Goddammit! Would have been all over these.
BlaqMagiq24  +   738d ago
I know right? I probably would've bought all of them except for 7 and 8 because I got them already. EU is already on a roll.
