This looks so incredible I am psyched to get this on PS3! Finally both International versions in English.. it is like a dream come true.
AsimLeonheart  +   679d ago
I agree. I was worried that this might turn out to be vaporware because SE was silent for more than a year. I am now glad that the game exists and we will be getting it before the end of the year. It is looks like they are remodelling the characters to some extent as well. Tidus's face looks a little different from before. Although I cant make any difference between the scenes of Tidus looking at Zanarkand. We need better quality scans!

I was pretty surprised at the X-2 being included with it. I know it wasn't the most popular installment in the series but I always like getting more for the same price. It wasn't as bad as some people make it out to be. You just kind of have to take it for what it is, and have fun with it instead of being overly critical.

agree i took X-2 for what it was tbh I enjoyed X-2 more than FF13 which I thought was extremely boring.
ThanatosDMC  +   678d ago
X-2 ruined Blitzball. Loved the monster arena. It was more robust than X.
MADGameR  +   679d ago
Wait, you mean Square Enix is actually not only going to release ffx and ffx-2 hd but also in international version? with the dark Aeons and extras?! SWEET!! I was initially obviously going to get this but MAN all the extras packed in makes me actually excited for this! Day 1 buy for me!
Lovable  +   678d ago
Can't wait to get this for my 360...
Minato-Namikaze  +   678d ago
Let me know how that works out.
Lovable  +   678d ago
Will do bro

Andreex  +   678d ago
Hahahaha yeah no doubt this will be on the Xbox 360, square knows that almost all of the ps2 fanbase went to the xbox360 when it came out so there is absolutely a great market for this game on the xbox, they would be effing stupid not to release it on xbox....next up, every metal gear after rising will be on the xbox too :)
Welcome2Die  +   678d ago
Im not sure if lovable and Andreex are trolling or just stupid.....

"almost all of the ps2 fanbase went to the xbox360 when it came out so there is absolutely a great market for this game on the xbox"

Yeah thats why FF13 and Metal Gear games among many other games on PS3 blew the xbox versions out of the water....
born2live  +   678d ago
And I am psyched to get it on Vita! although I hear that X-2 won't make it to the Vita... shame....

I think X-2 wont make it on the same Vita card, but the Vita should get X-2 in one way or another. At least I hope.
MaideninBlack  +   679d ago
Will buy this before any FF game staring Lightning.
ps3_pwns  +   679d ago
I agree lightning games suck. i only bought the first one because it was 14 dollars 1-2 months after release.

Cant wait to play this game though and its ps3 only because square knows where the real rpg fans are now they are making up for there stupidity this gen and gamers should as wwell by getting a ps3 and ps4.
Godchild1020  +   678d ago
Its not only coming to the PS3, its coming to the Vita as well. I will play this on my Vita and maybe my PS3 if there's cross save.
Snookies12  +   679d ago
Lol, don't "stare" at lightning, she's flashy but overall rather unimpressive.

Just joking with you. :]

I'm REALLY looking forward to this as well. I'm going to buy this on PS3, and at some point get the physical Vita versions as well. (Just to have them.)
gear  +   679d ago
I would by Lighting bolt(i.e. Metal gear rising ) if it comes on vita again
Well,i can see the characters are looking more enchanced but i hope it's graphic's are equal to 13.
KwietStorm  +   679d ago
Damn right about that.
Heavenly King  +   679d ago
They are polishing the character models. It looks great!! I thought they were just adding more resolution into the game, but they are actually enhancing other areas in the graphics department too. Looks like SE wants my money, and I will gladly give it to them this time (not like with FFXIII lol).
wishingW3L  +   679d ago
models are the same, it only looks cleaner because of the bump in resolution. It was already confirmed that they weren't going to remodel the characters nor improved the lighting like initially stated because of time constraint.

If you see tidus HD face from the scan, it looks better from the PS2 version.

Also the article you posted is more than 1 year old. Things change.

Bumps in texture doesn't change bone structure and hair strings. In fact if you look at the zanarkand pictures it has extra rock shapes under and over tidus. Its a lot more detailed.

Im sorry about your article, but pictures speak louder.
TongkatAli  +   679d ago
No, with your old ass article
KwietStorm  +   679d ago
How does a bump in resolution change the shape of his face and alter his hair style?
Irishguy95  +   679d ago
Looks much closer to the CG model too. Model wise I mean
Snookies12  +   679d ago
Well, if the Kingdom Heart 1.5 HD is anything to go by... Square Enix certainly does HD collections right... That game is the prettiest HD remaster I've seen to date.

I'd expect the same treatment given to FFX, and that's exciting!
k2d  +   678d ago
Dual audio now and we're talking!
clintagious650  +   679d ago
They couldve did this with FF7 & FF8 & ppl wouldve bought those all over again aswell. Good to see it took them one black eye to finally realise. Took them long enough.
gta2800  +   679d ago
Hopefully people buy these remakes and they see how well they sell and it pushes them to remake 8 and 7!
rainslacker  +   679d ago
Problem with FF7/8 is that the backgrounds were actually static 2D images, and the characters were rendered in 3D on that plane. When upgrading they would have to redo the 2D images to fit into the HD resolutions. This would mean either remaking them, or clipping them in such a way to fit the widescreen format. They could redo the 3D characters easily enough, but given how old those games were they'd also have to redo all the cut scenes which would take a considerable amount of time.

With 3D the environment is there(for the most part), and it just requires adjustment to the camera's focal aspects in order to include more on the screen.

I can't remember exactly, but I think FF9 actually was the first to have fully 3D environments. I may be wrong though.

For FFX they likely already had the higher res textures to work with since textures are made in high res then downsampled to meet spec demands. Increasing poly count isn't that hard on a well done model, and any commercial 3D software will do it for you with acceptable results. If the lower poly count model is good to begin with, the differences would be minimal anyways, since smoothing and other techniques make up for hard angles. Texture resolution is a huge factor in how a 3D model looks.

I think if they ever did decide to remake them, they would just be better off starting all the graphics from scratch, because basically that's what they would be doing anyways.

wishingW3L  +   679d ago
I rather play FF13 and its sequels to that boring mediocre piece of crap called FFX-2. Not even joking!

FFX-2 is completely pointless and unnecessary as a sequel, it was simply tacky and out of place. The battle system doesn't even make sense within the rules set by the world of the first game....

Sorry we said anything bad about FF8 and FF12. That's how bad FF13 is for most.
Rainstorm81  +   679d ago
FFX-2 is beyond both the FF13 games, I didn't like the "girl power" theme of the game but its a much deeper RPG than all of Square Enix games ths gen
Godmars290  +   679d ago
Besides it being broken on a fundamental level. Not only having to play it multiple times for the full ending, but an exact way to get 100% in events.
DragonKnight  +   679d ago
@wishingW3L: FFX-2 was originally supposed to be the prequel that we all wanted. Toriyama thought that that would be too traditional so he made it the Charlie's Angels we know and some love. So the ATB is in place because the CTB wouldn't work with only 3 characters and, either way, there would have been 3 characters whether it was Y.R.P. or B.A.J.

FFX-2 is also completely non-linear and is essentially an entire game worth of side-quests. In some ways that's good, in some ways that's bad, but at least it has its own identity. FFXIII is a corridor pseudo-action RPG, FFXIII-2 is a mish mash of older ideas from better games and suffers from the DLC trend of this current gen. With FFXIII and XIII-2 being TERRIBLE, how anyone can even conceive that Lightning Returns will somehow magically be better under the same director is beyond all capability to understand.

FFX-2 did do something far worse than FFXIII though. IT DESTROYED BLITZBALL!!!!
Snookies12  +   679d ago
@Godmars290 - I loved FF8... :\

I've been playing Final Fantasy since the first game back on Nintendo and 8 definitely ranks in my tops for the series. (Although to be fair, I hated it at first. It took a LONG time for me to actually go through it and learn to like it for what it was.)
silkrevolver  +   678d ago
I actually like X-2.

It's nowhere near as good as the original, but it has a really fun battle system, and it's story gets less campy as it goes on.

clintagious650  +   679d ago
Blitz Ball here i come lol. Miss that in FFX also miss the card game in FF8. Those were fun.
GenericNameHere  +   679d ago
I hated Blitzball. I could never make a shot. So I just far up... Wanted Wakka's ultimate weapon, but don't wanna keep losing over and over again.

Might have to do it though if there's a trophy for it or if I wanna fight that extra boss on the airship.
execution17  +   679d ago
I loved blitz ball, spent more time playing that then the actual game lol
nikoado  +   679d ago
Once you got the sphere shot and, more importantly, the jecht shot (which knocks out two defenders), it was much easier to score.

I once beat the Ronso team 34-0 ;)
GABRIEL1030  +   679d ago
FFX for Vita is nice.
blackbirdi  +   679d ago
looks like they use the high-polygone models which where used in cut-scenes .... if anybody dumped the final fantasy 10 games and ripped the model he will know what i m talking about
FamilyGuy  +   679d ago
That would be awesome, no wonder his hair got shorter/changed.
KingKelloggTheWH  +   678d ago
The ripped models were crazy HQ
blackbirdi  +   678d ago
Not all of them for exemple the models where you travel between the stages /maps or even temples they where Low models about 1500 polygons i ripped them all they are really nice even if there where very liw models

So....they are using better quality models here :D Tidus hair looks waaaaaaaaaaaay better :)

I wont trailer!!!!!!
MiyagiSPG  +   679d ago
This + Kingdom Hearts HD Collection = Yes, yes, YES!!!! :D

Maybe if FFX/FFX-2 HD sells well enough (or even more then Lightning Returns ;) ) we'll see SE make their future FF games like previous FF games... like how they should be!

The quality of the scans is awful. Ill wait to see a vid to decide if it is worth my money because i have been playing ffx on my pc in hd because on ps2 it looks god awful on an hdtv. Does any one know if the states will get ffx international or original in this new hd version because there are a few differences
NatureOfLogic  +   679d ago
It was rumored to have FFX and X-2 international versions. Going by the scans the X-2 rumors were true, so I'm hoping we get the International versions as we'll. If you look at the Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD remix, they're adding the final mix version which is like the FF international versions.

Edit: FFX and X-2 international versions have english options but never released outside of PAL.

I hope you're not implying that scene was a low-point of the voice acting. Because I thought the scene was performed perfectly and the feeling of awkwardness from the player is exactly what they were going for.

Any chance of getting X digitally...and only X...I don't want X-2 anywhere near my system.
Silly gameAr  +   679d ago
I actually enjoyed 10-2. It was...different, but not bad. I thought the whole garment grid and dressphere battle system was pretty creative at the time.

I actually liked it more then Final Fantasy 12. 12 wasn't a bad game by any means, but I just couldn't get into the changes they made with the FF formula. I still need to finish that game. Wonder if they're willing to do an HD port of it so I can give it a second shot, but with HD and trophies this time.

They likely do this. However this is the same Square Enix who didn't have enough sense to put Birth by Sleep on PSN when it released in the last active year of PSP before Vita. They put 3rd Birthday and Dissidia 012 up quickly so it's not like it's abstract idea. Anyways it may get a digital version as only the bundle as well.

I cannot wait to buy FFX (again) cuz I have it on PS2
