So many good memories with this game. Never understood how people had so much hate for it - it's just great.
Lucreto  +   978d ago
Fans are fickle people.

They hated the game but when FFXII came out the hate moved to that and people like FFX.

With FF XIII people started hating that and I see more love for FF XII now.
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   978d ago
Actually I still dislike XII but like XIII. FFX I liked but never finished so I will buy the remaster for sure.

If im not mistaken, everyone didn't hate FFX. However, most people did not like FF X-2. And thats when the series went downhill. If anything FFX was considered one of the best stories in gaming ever created. I do find it funny they are adding FFX-2 on the disc for free cause that's about what it's worth, nothing. lol But hey at least its better than FF12 and FF13
Tei777  +   977d ago
I adore XII, lazy combat and mundane story... but awesome world and exploration!

I loved 12, I hope one day we get that on the Vita too.


Story was indeed a bit lame, but I thought the combat was great
AsimLeonheart  +   977d ago
Only when something worse comes people realise they were better off in the past. :-) Anyway, the game looks just great in HD! Looks like they reworked even the textures in he background. This looks like one of the proper HD remasters that have been released on the PS3 and not like the poor DMC and Silent Hill remasters.

the character design sucks. The game is great, but the character design sucks. and maybe that is why they tweaking the faces this time.
WilliamH  +   977d ago
Who pissed in your cornflakes this morning grumpy
GenericNameHere  +   977d ago
I didn't mind the design. I thought they were pretty good (especially Lulu. Nomura went all out adding a bajillion zippers and belts all around her. Plus, her character model was hot. Goth, big-boobed, and hot... Too bad Wakka went all funky on her)

Anyways, anyone only used some characters? I found Tidus, Khimari, Wakka, and Riku completely worthless (that's 4 out of the 7 characters!!). I kept using Aaron, Lulu, and Yuna because they were the strongest and dealt the most damage (well, as far as I went). They were all the same levels, about the same amount of stuff in the Sphere Grid, and had gotten almost everyone's ultimate weapons, but I could barely hit the 9999 (or 999, I forget) damage mark with those 4 characters. Maybe it's just I wasn't good at optimizing my characters. Sphere Grid was only about halfway done when I beat the game.

I'll be the only one to agree simply because you didn't just bash the game, you provided a valuable opinion.

why did 28 trolls get mad that YOU THOUGHT the character design sucked?

you didn't just come out and say the game sucked, it's for gay people, I hate it, characters suck, blah blah blah.

It's amazing how trolls are compelled to disagree without much thought process.

btw I never played this game...
rainslacker  +   977d ago

Because us 28 "trolls" didn't think the character design sucked. Just because he gave an opinion doesn't mean we agree with it. He also didn't really qualify why he thought they sucked.

I could say "X game sucks", and it would be a valid opinion...just not a constructive one, thus while valid, not really "valuable". If he elaborated on why he thought it sucks, then it would be worth discussing.

"So many good memories with this game. Never understood how people had so much hate for it - it's just great."

w8 what? o.O who hate FFX r u serious? ~.~ FFX is my 2nd all time favorite FF game after FFVII, & as I know FFX have sold over 8 million pieces, it's the 2nd best selling FF after FFVII.

Those who hate FFX if those ppl exist r nothing compare to ppl who hate other FF like VIII or XII & XIII yep much more hate those other FF.
DOMination-  +   977d ago
I don't hate X but i think its overrated. I posted why yesterday so check ny history if you care. For me it was nowhere near the standard of 6-9 which i adore. Just my opinion though.
WalterWJR  +   977d ago
I don't remember there being much hate for this game. especially in Europe anyway. I remember going to spain on holiday and loads of ppl wearing ffx t shirts.

belac09  +   978d ago
i LOVE both games, i am so glad they will both be on the vita!!!!
Aceman18  +   978d ago
Same I'll be buying both for my Vita.
PsnGammer21  +   977d ago
Day one vita buy for both but if there is cross save holy shit will have both versions day one
Lucreto  +   978d ago
I can't wait for it.

I hope it will release during the summer.
Chaos_Raiden  +   978d ago
YES!!! I hope that it will be released soon.
Minato-Namikaze  +   978d ago
For some reason, i read that as the games were coming to the west on monday the 25th. Completely missed "trailer" in that sentence, lol =_=
timmyp53  +   978d ago
Square should be focusing on new IPs! I doubt the demand for this is actually worth it.
Aceman18  +   978d ago
Speak for yourself slim, but I'll be buying both these games for the Vita.
belac09  +   977d ago
i too will be getting both games for the vita!
Snookies12  +   977d ago
I'm getting them both for Vita AND PS3.
Alos88  +   978d ago
Sony focus on new IPs more than either of the competition already.
timmyp53  +   977d ago
The disagrees? I get it, people can't let go of the golden age of PS2 gaming but seriously aren't people tired of remasters yet. I want remakes/reboots. Instead of these texture, AA, and resolution updates. This takes minimal effort! Just check out PCXS2 on PC. People are playing most of the PS2 back catalog 1080p 60 fps with maybe a little bit of bugs.
TwinDad  +   977d ago
I would also like remakes vs a remaster, but I suspect that some of the negatives are that Square will no doubt profit big time from this, the demand will indeed be worth it.
timmyp53  +   977d ago
If it sells 1.5 mill. I'd be surprised. Then again with the effort they put into it they probably could sell a lot less and profit but I'm generally turned off by these so I'll pass. FFX was a fantastic game and i'm sure it'll be a good game for trophies at least.
insomnium2  +   977d ago
Exactly Timmy. These new versions have better graphs and also trophies. No need to buy at full price but eventually I will buy this for sure.
BlaqMagiq24  +   977d ago
It's simple. Don't like it, don't buy them. They're making these for people who can't do what you're saying and because the PS2 generation is arguably the best one ever. If they're remastering classics, then no I will never tire of them because they're exactly that, classics.
rainslacker  +   977d ago
I'm not tired of them. It's a fresh way to play older games that I actually liked...most of the time.

If you don't like them that's fine, but your assumption that this game isn't going to sell is unfounded. This game is being heavily talked about not just on here, but RPG specific sites, gaming forums in general, and is getting press outside of gaming.

It is a very well liked title in the FF series, and so far most HD remakes have sold pretty well. They may not light the charts on fire, but they aren't terribly expensive to produce, so it's easy profit for the developers, and gamers get a new way to play a game they either missed, or want to go back to in a new way.

Keep in mind that a vast majority of games released do not even break the 1 million mark. It's not necessary to get to 1 million to make a title worth producing. People assume so because games like COD, AC, Halo, GT, or GOW sell 7-20 million copies, so it became the new standard for what is considered successful. However publishers are much more restrained in their forecasts, and often if a title sells 250,000 copies it is profitable.

Edit @ Tei below

I'm not even sure if this is being handled in house at Square. Most HD remakes have been done by a 3rd party. People shouldn't forget that Square owns many development studios, and their own in-house studio has anywhere between 4-5 teams.

Tei777  +   977d ago
I'm pretty sure this is not being handled by a team of 50+ people... e.i, its not being made in place of any new titles, at most it'll probably delay whatever else they're cooking up few months.
r21  +   977d ago
International release? Yay :D
tubers  +   977d ago
I hope this is some sort of sign that SE would be seriously entering the VITA.

There was KH and Bravely for the 3DS.. now please give a similar offering for the VITA xD
Snookies12  +   977d ago
Perhaps Birth by Sleep Volume 2 that they teased in the Final Mix version? That would be nifty...
tigertron  +   977d ago
As a fan of both games, count me in!
Th4Freak  +   977d ago
I've never played FF before this might be my chance. I just hope they don't realease it digital only cause i'll pass :(
Snookies12  +   977d ago
Nah man, it'll have physical copies. FFX was a masterpiece of a game, hope you enjoy it!
Fyflin  +   977d ago
Can't wait to fire up FFX for the Vita with my headphones in and hear THAT music again. Such a beautiful game on so many levels.
GABRIEL1030  +   977d ago
I love Lulu I'll buy this game nly for you :)
Tei777  +   977d ago
I hope the Vita version has good anti aliasing, thats been my biggest annoyance with the ports at the moment.
-Gespenst-  +   977d ago
Oh man I can't wait to play these again. Both of them are amazing.

I think people act terribly close-minded about X-2, it really is a fantastic game. Amazing soundtrack, spellbinding plot, excellent gameplay and soooo much to do. Plus we in Europe finally get the Yadanoki Tower!! I can't flippin wait.

I mean who wasn't 100% glued to that game when Yuna first sees that mysterious sphere at the start? (don't want to give anything away?) As soon as I saw that I couldn't put the controller down.
Snookies12  +   977d ago
The main issue I had with X-2 was the god awful dialogue. "Disasteriffic"? What in the hell is that?? Kind of hard to take it seriously when they say things like that. Not to mention it was a little too over the top with outfits and things like that.

Other than that, I had a great time with it. The gameplay was great, the story was good. I put in about 120 hours into the game, so I got my money's worth. Though it's quite telling when I look at my FFX save data and see that I put in 320+ hours. (On just one of my save files) X-2 was nowhere near X in terms of greatness, but it was still a fun game.

i loved X.. That was the last FF game i actually cared for.. The rest were "meh" to me.. XII was good but not as good to me.. Damn, Lulu is lookin good! Why dont gothic chicks in real life look that nice?

I'm really happy they're releasing BOTH games, for only $40 in HD Remastered quality. It's also the best of both worlds.

FFX - Traditional Turn Based Battle, Story Based, Linear
FFX-2 - Active Time Battle, Non linear, Open

It's like the best of both worlds!
Relientk77  +   977d ago
Give me these games
memots  +   977d ago
I don't know if i can still "get into" a Final Fantasy

My favorite were 2 and 3 ( north america release)
I never finished 7,
I got 8 on pc and it was ok but did not hook me.
9 was awesome i love that they got back to mediaval fantasy era.
10 i bought it and found it boring.
I played a bit of 13 was not interested.

So really should i try 10 again in glorious HD on my vita ? Will it get me back into ff ?
WalterWJR  +   977d ago
I don't remember there being much hate for this game. especially in Europe anyway. I remember going to spain on holiday and loads of ppl wearing ffx t shirts. awesome game with an even better soundtrack.
DonFreezer  +   977d ago
I'm done with Square Enix.I had a ps2 but switched to 360 and this is a complete abandonment to the 360 fan base. What's the point of having the game exclusive to Sony?Well seems like the Sony paycheck was put into good use.
hot4play  +   977d ago
If you were a true PS2 & FF fan then maybe you shouldnt have switched to 360. Just sayin. #bitter360fan
DonFreezer  +   977d ago
Well I'm a true fan to noone.I care about gaming not about a single company.I just feel that this is an abondontment to all the gamers who hoped this would come to the Wii U or the 360 or even the 3DS.It's just that everytime this happens with a game on Nintendo or Microsoft you cry about it not coming to the psvita or ps3.
ToZanarkand86  +   977d ago
as if 3DS could run this game...
Dream on. Lets stick to N64 remakes eh.

If they're sold separately on vita they better cost half of what the hd collection on the PS3 costs.
cr33ping_death  +   977d ago
ahhhhh i cant wait!!!!!!! i was 19 when i played this..... if its not out by the end of August.....ill be 31 :( lol man i cant wait. never played X2 so thatll be a new experience

Announced for the West wow Really?
fffan9391  +   977d ago
I wonder if they'll include the Japanese voice track. I like the English voices and think the VAs did a great job, but I wouldn't mind experiencing the game in the original Japanese with subtitles.
e-p-ayeaH  +   977d ago
awesome cant wait for the trailer!
