Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD gets a release date

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD is more than just a pretty update of a classic game. It's one that has some extra content planned. And a release date to go with it. (Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster: Collector’s Edition, PS3)

I can't say that any Final Fantasy titles interest me.. remakes even less so..

What was the point of coming here if FF doesn't interest you?

@Zealous...WELL SAID!

Thank you for proving and contributing to nothing, you must fail at life so hard. "clicks on a FF article, posts nonsense".

Im really looking forward to playing FFX again personally, ill pass on X-2

so many years later and that giggling and laughing (and the...ugh...concert bits) still annoy the hell out of me. I'll play it but only because the battle system was really good.

I don't really think anyone cares. People want FFVII remade, not this nonsense. Personally, I want VI (the best in the series, gosh darn it!) redone.
zeal0us  +   473d ago
While some people do want a FF7 remake, I do think people care about FF10 remake. If there wasn't a interest in it then SE wouldn't have made it.

I must have put in hundreds of hours in to FFVII, but I really can't understand the desire for a remake.

The game was revolutionary because of the CD format, and I played it to death because it was unlike anything we'd seen before at that time. But even back then the characters felt stereotypical, and the story was a bit of a mess.

When I have tried to play it again since, it's just not been worth the effort. Even if SE sorted out the checkpoint system and smoothed out some of the rough bits I'd still not bother with it unless it had some significant revamping of game play mechanics.

I'd rather SE focus on getting back to making good games now, not pandering to fanboys wearing rose tinted glasses.

I played it again recently, I admit that I didn't even make it past 10 hours played this time around. It's just not as good as I remember it, most of my enjoyment came from nostalgia and from the soundtrack, music never really gets old but graphics and gameplay mechanics sadly do not stand the test of time in most cases.

I wonder how many of the people that are screaming for a remake have actually picked it up and played it recently.

I disagree with both of you. I'm playing FF7 through right now and I'm enjoying the hell out of it. Just working on getting Omnislash from battle arena. Just got Shadowflare from ultima weapon for all 3 enemy skill materias. This time I'll play this thing through for sure. There's much nostalgia but to me the game mechanics have not aged one bit.
Jdoki  +   473d ago
That's cool insomnium2. I have a blast on a lot of old games. Just FFVII doesn't do it for me any more. Although I do think the Materia system was awesome.

I think I prefer both VIII and X these days for 3D FF's. The old 2D titles were probably the best though.

Have fun beating the Ruby and Emerald Weapon super bosses!! :)

i liked xenogears more than i liked ff7. to me, 10 was pretty good, but out of all the playstation final fantasies i rather have 8 remade.
Inception  +   473d ago
Hey ElleGee, you want FF VI / VII remake when basicaly it's the same game you already play / beaten years ago, only with better graphics. Then you came in here and said FF X remaster 'is nonsense and no one cares about it'. Lol what an irony -_-
levian  +   473d ago
Personally, I want them ALL remade for PS3/PS4, that was I don't have to fire up my PS2 (which is starting to break).

I really want them to re-release FF12 next.
moonstormer  +   474d ago
love final fantasy - excited for the extra content!
Lucreto  +   474d ago
I was hopeing for an earlier date. Too many games and a new console on the way.

Just have to wait for the Collectors Edition before I pre-order.
VsAssassin  +   474d ago
This will be the only SE game in a long time that I know I will buy and won't get disappointed in. I just hope the framerate remains the same if not improved.
fsfsxii  +   474d ago
They almost took 2 years to make the friggin HD remaster, they better make it right
Xof  +   474d ago
So, in other words, it's an extra ending cinematic for FFX-2.

Release date only for JP version? Or worldwide?

I'll probably get this since I never actually played FFX and FFX-2.
Dmd  +   473d ago
If you're into Final Fantasy, you'll probably like X. It has a beautiful story and really great characters - it is Final Fantasy done right. Really right.
Too bad (and weird) they decided to make the sequel so spice-girls themed...

October? Alright but for which version. I presume Japanese version.
knifefight  +   473d ago
No one knows. The things in this "news" update are just retail placeholders. There's no official announcement.
Toman85  +   473d ago
If this is true, holy moly epic!
Kingdom Hearts HD Remix 1.5 in september and this in october, can it be better than this, ehh no!
But rumors says that FFX-FFX-2 is digital only release

johnnoarms  +   473d ago
I hope these HD remakes sells really well, just because I wanna play FF XII HD on my Vita.
