GC: "Earlier there was a rumour that FFX and FFX-2 will be available for the PS3 and both of them will be on one disc."
That's good. FF X-2 is not as terrible as people love to claim. I liked it actually, it was a fresh and funny take on FF X, the dresspheres system was a cool feature and Leblanc is still one of my favourite characters of the series.
It's so camp but if you can stomach it, I agree, it's a fun game.
I thought it was horrible... FF Barbie edition. I'd much rather have FF XII than X-2.
@guitarded77 I get it. I also agree regarding FFXII though there's probably a lot of parallel work with FFX-2 that means porting FFX gets them halfway to porting to FFX-2. Whereas porting FFXII is an entirely new proposition. One I hope they get to once FFXHD is out. In the meantime, I suggest playing FFXII on PC using PCSX2. The game runs really well at 1080p without any weird glitches. It's friggin' fantastic.
It was so camp, i am surprised i didnt come across a row of pink tents in the game. WTF were they thinking ?? This was SquareEnix first FF, this is where it all started going wrong.
@marlec well not sure if that's when they started going wrong, but they saw their mistake and didn't repeat it with with XII, and XII was good not XIII btw
FF X-2 is where me and Final Fantasy went our own ways... And I'm a guy who owns 1 through 10, and some repeats because of different systems I own, plus two different Tactics games. I will be getting X HD for my Vita and I will gladly pass on CX-2 thank you.
What I find ridiculous about this is that it's taken them so long to remake this, yet they can continue to churn out FF13 games at the drop of a hat, when most gamers want Versus XIII more than anything. WTF is wrong with Square Enix? Do they have to be on the brink of bankruptcy to realize that they are stupid? I can't believe that this was once the company (or at least part of it) that made FF7, 8, and 9. All they think about is re-using assets from previous games now, rather than focusing on making a good game.
It's about pride. They don't want to admit that the games they are making in the present suck more than the games they made in the Past under Sakaguchi. Wada keeps letting Toriyama change Final Fantasy from a traditional JRPG to a corridor, more action-RPG with continued de-emphasis on Past Final Fantasy trademarks. Toriyama is destroying the brand and, rather than admit that most don't want this "new" Final Fantasy, they simply continue to believe they know better than fans. They did it with the original FFXIV when they ignore beta testers, and they did with the FFXIII trilogy.
Which is why I often refer to those games as Square games as opposed to Square Enix games; not long after their acquisition of Enix, they began sucking (especially after 10). Props where they're due, though; they've been doing pretty well as a publisher when you consider Sleeping Dogs, Hitman: Absolution, Deus Ex: HR, and Tomb Raider. The games they publish are good or great, while it seems the ones they develop suck now.
You say everyone wants Versus yet no one really knows anything about it, if you ask me it was total rubbish that even Squarenix realized it & just cant be arsed with it anymore. Lets face it Squarenix can only produce shit & thats a fact !!
no, as someone who beat the game, FFX-2 is bad storywise but great battlewise. Terrible storyline, very frustrating to get through at times. Still, it won't stop me from playing it again...*sigh*...guess I'm a glutton for punishment.
"FF X-2 is not as terrible as people love to claim." cant...compute...error
Sorry, this man couldn't stomach the Barbie-aspect. That's just me though...
I agree that was novel take on the world, but its was horribly executed... The gameplay was great though, once you got down to it, it was just held back by everything else.
Yeah... I'd rather FFX and FFXII be on one disc. I have no desire to play X-2...
I gave up on it because after trying to get through it several times, as I'd always reach a point where the 100% guide said I should have X% of the game completed, and I'd only have Y% instead. I could use a good excuse to play through it again. You know, since I can't play the disc I own in my PS3, and won't be able to play it in a PS4, either. (Of course, the PS3 version will be unplayable next gen, too).
It was made for because romantic types wrote in to complain about the ending and wanted a sub story to end the sad fate at the end of X. This is why it was more on the chick level. Just write SE and find out the truth. Then look at the story's main plot. If you manage to get 100% then you can unlock something romantic.
its a good game I agree, though very bad memories of getting 90% or something and not getting the good ending so having to do new game plus.
FFX-2 is a terrible game when you compare it to PS2 high quality JRPG but for sure this same game will be on top 3 best JRPG when you compare it to what we got this generation.. I didnt like FFX-2 at the time it came out when you have Dragon Quest VIII on the same console but i'm glad it's announced for PS3 and Vita. Day one!
YES! YES! http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Wait, the Vita version will be sold separately? http://www.youtube.com/watc...
That's probably only in Japan. Wasn't MGS2 and MGS3 both sold separately on retail in Japan, and so was Ico and Shadow of the Colossus (unless you bought the version that had both games in one box)?
So X-2 is ALSO getting an HD remake?? YES! And I read "International" on the bottom. Are both games HD remakes of the international versions, or are they getting an international release??
Probably, they already have all the audio for every country so it wouldn't be hard to do.
I hope this is true & I hope this comes out in NA before the PS4 is released,wouldn't mind taking a stab at both games one last time in HD especially on one disc.
I want FF12 :/
Well i wasn't a fan of X-2 but if there tossing it in there as a pack i wouldn't complain being i planned to pick up 10 anyway. X-2 was really bad tho. It's a chick flick of video games IMO. Never the less nice it's an added bonus.
never did beat FFX-2, so maybe this is the perfect time. I only care that they come in a blue disk and making sure it's "decent" port. FFX was my first ps2 game, so I really want a copy that would last me generations.
i am happy :)
Is it possible for half of a disc to collect dust? ;) I made already made the mistake of playing X-2, and I learned my lesson.
Thats great how about less talk more release date info
x-2 having an hd version? it's ok i guess... i never finished it. i was hoping that ff 12 will be the added feature.
FFXII-HD would kick ass so badly
Having both games in HD (hopefully) is great news for fans of these games. I know a lot of people rag on FF X-2 as being the 'bastard' child of the franchise...before FF XIII showed up i guess. However some of us that despise the game have to understand that the reason it was made was due to the popularity of the Yuna character in Japan & in general overall. Also the game reflects the changes in the world of Spira after Sin's defeat showing a more lighthearted approach. If you ignore all the camp & cheesiness the game is actually pretty solid. The battle system with its 'job-like' system is deep & dynamic. The music was really well done especially the title theme 'Eternity ~Memory of Lightwaves~'. The initial start of the story is pretty weak but as it moves along it really picks up & portrays the characters well. My only disappointment for the game was the less than stellar villain in the game, other than that i enjoyed the game very much so. Am a guy who likes games like Neptunia & Atelier series so something like FF X-2 was nothing to be ashamed about. So i look forward to getting it on my Vita when it is released...emphazing on WHEN since this IS Squarenix.
cant bloody wait
would have preferred a quicker release and no x-2 2bh.
It must be awful to get a free game.
If that free game that adds to development time of ffx HD, Which I will not be playing and will boost up the price then sure... it is awful to get a free game.
I might get this along with kh 1.5. I am also wondering will ffx be the international version because i heard it is a bit different then the original.
At least we will have a decent Final Fantasy in PS3/360. Great News for Vita ¡
FFX Collection is currently exclusive on PS3 and PS Vita.
I don't care if I'm in the minority, I loved playing X-2, so I'm glad it's getting an HD makeover too.
I know there is love for 360 too.
might be coming to Xbox 360 and DS
That's freaking awesome
i wonder if there will be a 360/Wii U release or be an exclusive to sony
i hated the singing & cheesy pop music sections of that game.. I couldnt even listen to it though the actual gameplay was great
The storyline might suck, but other than that Final Fantasy 10-2 is a great game. The combat is amazing and by itself saves the game, but the quests are done well, etc. The only other bad thing about the game is the hidden content. There's stuff that's able to be missed if you don't go through the world every single chapter.
I'll buy it. I liked X-2 more than most, and I really loved X, especially the music. And there's the whole double shot of Rikku to look forward to, which is delicious blonde icing on the cake.
Never understood the hate for X-2 game. I enjoyed it almost as I did X.
Final Fantasy X and X-2 was one of the best rpgs of the previous era.X was in fact the best ps2 rpg at the time before Persona 4 released and dethroned it.What bothers me is that I had a ps2 but not a ps3 so I don't see why at least in Europe and the US they don't release the game to the 360?Where are all the ps fanboys who said that Mass Effect was to be enjoyed by everyone.This game should have been released to all platforms it could get including Wii U.Seems like the Sony paycheck was put to good use.
you know why a lot of people hate ff x-2? because it gives you the feeling that your cross dressing especially if your a manly man. And then theres 3 ladies no boy heroine making the adventure look like a joke, plus the stuff the people love about FFX was completely changed in FFX-2. but dont get me wrong im just pointing out what people hate. i finished that game just not that tower of something.
i just wonder about the X-2, they said those game was build in the international version, does that mean the X-2 will incluce the last mission? and i hope after that they will remake FF12 ZJS
I remember falling in love with Yuna and wishing she was real. I definitely get this on the VITA.
REALLY? we were waiting all this extra time for them to remaster X-2!? that is why it has taken so long? another middle finger from square. ffX-2 sucks. the minigames and story ruin that game
only on the playstation systems. just had to say it for the people who try and dodge playstation consoles for whatever dumb reason yet they like games like persona, final fantasy, ni no kuni etc. makes no sense at all.
I'm really shocked at how many people are defending X-2...Question for those that actually liked it: did you play it as a teenager just out of puberty? Because I can't imagine any other group of people that would like it...It crapped all over FFX.
