Experience one of the timeless classics in the Final Fantasy series with Zidane, Garnet, Vivi and more.
Wtf hold up! I appreciate that this is currently $16.79 for the time being, but apparently after Sept 26 this game will be sold for $20.99 on PSN! As much as I love FFIX and will rebuy this game right now anyway that's a lot of bull, especially since FFVII HD costed $15.99 when it was rereleased on PS4. Square Enix sure does love reselling their classic games at a premium price. Just look at how Star Ocean 3 is also $21 on PS4 & the Secret of Mana remake will be $40.
Yep. I just went ahead and bought it now because at the sale price it is only 80 cents more than Final Fantasy VII.
Yeah but if FFIX HD naturally costed $15.99 like FFVII HD did when it was first rereleased on PS4, then it too would've been offered at the same discounted price of $10.87 in its first week on PSN.
one hours wage... 2 if your on a lesser wage. hardly a high price
Agreed. For some is around 30 minutes of work, compared to the hours of entertainment. It's a bargain. Or if you already have the original PS1 game play that one.
Complaining about the price, how much are you paying for a movie ticket? $16 for a 50 hour plus game.
Make no mistake, I can easily rebuy the game no problem. I just don't see why FFIX HD is more expensive than FFVII HD or why Square Enix likes to overcharge for some their other classic titles getting rereleased.
it has more work done to it. its really pretty, i have it on ipad and steam. il buy it anywhere im a real whore lol
Just curious what improvements does FFIX HD have over FFVII HD besides autosaving? Also you dirty dirty FFIX whore.🤣 I may have bought KH2 every time it was released across three platforms with no shame, but that's different 😏
Lots more work. All background enhancement/restoration had to be redone as most of the original BG art bit the dust back in the day. Hence why, even though improved, the BG's aren't AS HD as the character models.
Well i bought 9 on ios 15$ so i understand your situation
I buy pizza for $15 and it's gone within minutes. FF 9 will give you over 40 hours of play time.
is this one of these unaltered ps2 "ports" that uses some kind of backward emulation? if yes, i'll avoid it like the plague.
I am pretty sure it is basically the Steam version. It has a platinum too for those who care about that.
Nope, it's the remastered version PC and mobile got. Reworked models for characters/enemies, updated menus and UI, etc.
God knows what the price is going to be like in the UK
It's currently £13.59 for PS+ subscribers and £16.99 for none PS+ subscribers.
Gotta love that entertainment business. Make one product, profit off of it for the rest of time. lol Only a moron will buy this, or any game for that matter, a second time.
So, umm...you buyin' it?
Then I'll gladly be a moron. I don't feel like having to keep playing an inferior version of a game on worse hardware. If that's what you wanna do more power to you.
Damn, you sucked the fun right out of this announcement.
There is nothing moronic with enjoying a game and wanting to keep playing it. Playing this game on a PS4 is going to be the best option for a lot of people.
You've never wanted to read a book again, or go back to your favorite movie? What if a person loved the game and no longer has a PS1 and a copy, or doesn't want to play it on Android? Should they just emulate and steal a rom? Easy as it is to do, it's still illegal.
Or, you know, people who loved the game.
I hope they will do a physical release of FFIX.
Just a reminder... Sony talks PS4 backwards compatibility: 'why would anybody play this?' Sony can’t understand why people would want to play PsOne and PS2 games when there’s PS4 games to play. http://www.psu.com/news/331...
Good thing this was a decision by Square then, eh? Besides, this is the Remaster. Would much rather this than the old PS1 version tbh.
Why? You're just getting the Steam treatment! Higher resolution for the polygons models and cleaner movies The frame rate is the same, the backgrounds are the old ps1 background. Here: http://store.steampowered.c...
Because I love this game and want to be able to play it at any time in any room. Already have the Steam version, got the Digital on my Vita and PS3, hell, may even buy the Mobile version.
Because who needs BC, right!?!?!? Greatness awaits MY ASS!!! I'm glad I sold my PS4 if his is what console gaming has become.
Unless I am remembering wrong these games are on PC as well. I know I have been looking at them on Steam.
Rebuying it on a other platform is totally acceptable. I already bought this game on my PS3 SONY CONSOLE. Why should I buy it again? They pulled the same stunt with GTA Vice City when PS2 classics arrived on the PS4 too. You own this on PS3?!?!?! TOO FREAKING BAD, BUY IT AGAIN FOR PS4 BECAUSE LOL!!!! They're penny and diming everybody this gen and its our own fault that this gen is actually PS3.5. "We dont need BC because we only want new games" Then go bananas when a "Remastered" is announced with slightly better graphics, trophy support and a framerate locked at 60FPS. The masters of your own destruction!
....yes, every single new game being released and shown at TGS and elsewhere is COMPLETELY negated by porting a remaster of a classic title to the system.
Say what you want bro. For each true current gen game released there is atleast 10 remasters to balance it out.
You're a "special" sort, aren't you?
sigh. i just couldn't resist. and it looks and performs horrible. damn this emulated crap on my highend console. but.. signal given. one unit sold equals demand for such no efforts. i bet this game on the ps4 will be responsible for widespread eyecancer.
Try harder bro.
