Sam Hansen writes "A few years ago, I had pretty much come to the realization that I was never going to be able to play the original Valkyrie Profile. And I was at peace with that, I really was. But then Square Enix came along and ravaged the globe with its relentless port tornado, leaving rehashes of gems like VP in its wake for consoles that I was (and still am!) too poor to invest in. So even if I wanted to play the tri-Ace treasure, I'm now caught in this dilemma where I can either shell out two hundred dollars for the PSX version or an equally painful…well, two hundred dollars for a PSP and the remake. Salt in the wound, I tell you, salt in the wound."
