SCRAWL: "On June 24, 2009 the Japanese PlayStation Store will be updated with yet another Final Fantasy PSone Classic. This time it's the original Final Fantasy, numero uno, weighing in at 60 MB. When the game launches, it will go for 600 Yen."
It really gives me hope that it will be release over here. 1-9 on psn would be awesome and playable between psp and ps3 is an added bonus!!
FF8 for me!
I am dying to play this game. I tried playing the GBA roms but gah it's crappy on my PC. It don't feel right.
I wanna replay FF8 and FF9! =)
is this the psone version ? or is this the psp version ? both of them are a sham at this price but still
...and it was pretty fun. I do hope they release all FF games before 10 on PSN eventually.
Weren't Final Fantasy I and II released together with Final Fantasy Origins on PS1?
Japan got different releases, like FFIV not being with Chrono Trigger. Maybe FFI was released separately in Japan for PSOne.
why charge $10 for FF I and II when they can charge $10 for each. ;) as someone pointed out though, it's possible Japan got these titles seperately. If they do come stateside though I wouldn't be surprised to see them individually sold. Although at that rate I'd much rather stick w/ them on disc than fork out the extra cash to play them on my PSP. ;) Plenty of other great RPGs I can play on my PSP...
even the rerelease of these games on PSP was bundled ... i guess there will do like in europe and release them for full price each .
actually, if I recall, they were sold individually on PSP. Which is why I never bothered buying them on PSP. Why pay $40 for FFI only to pay another for FFII? they're certainly not worth $40 a piece imho...
And why do I suspect this is the first version of the port and not the updated PSP version which should be made playable on the PS3.
At 60mb, it pretty much has to be the original. Which is a shame, because the remake is pretty nice, and I'd love to be able to play it on a bigger screen.
Do you have any idea how tiny those old games were? I don't even think any N64 games were 60mb in size.
N64 cartridges were 4MB to 64MB.
Still long story short...NES games were TINY!
I think it could be the enhanced PS1 version or if we are lucky the PSP remake since the original NES version weights around 147kbs and it would make more sense (apart from being easier) to have the PS1 version than a straight NES port
I'm talking more about the differences between NES and NGB/DS versions in terms of quality - who gives a damn about memory size in this day and age. Especially 60MB on a system that has as much as 60GB to 500GB.
I was talking to Xof saying it had to be the original because it was 60mb. I'm just saying that compared to the original on the NES this file is huge so it may be some kind of enhanced version. If they were popping out N64 games that size and smaller I bet one of the nicer versions of that game at could ring in at around 60mb.
@Grashopper: He means the "original" PS1 remake, not the original NES game. Apparently there was an even more enhanced remake released later for the PSP. Incidentally, I'm getting a PSP for my birthday and I noticed you can get FFII and apparently FFI for the PSP. Are they decent? I never really played any of those games before FFVI.
@Polluted I consider the PSP remakes to be the best versions of both games given how much things were improved and added even compared to the previous remakes they can also be find for dirty cheap (considering they we already very cheap for a PSP game) ...so yes I would recommend them
well time for them to bleed the psn dry i suppose, lol
realize they was stupid not the support/release a game on the PS3 until now.
Not enough to do a proper job of it. Put War of the Lions on PSN instead of the original FFT.
WOW....... the original Final Fantasy. Sounds epic. When I was younger I remember playing a demo of it but it was my first rpg and I didnt know wat i was doing.
Dear Square, please stop turning your heads away from FF13. I know that you just made $650,000 from FF7, and that's some extra money in the bank, but can you focus on that game now? Kind regards, the gamers of the world Edit @ below: I forgot about them getting a chunk of the change so you're right, and I've updated my post.
actually Sony get a cut of that. So the probable made like $650K in two weeks with no effort.
I really doubt if the guys in charge of developing FFXIII have anything at all to do with releasing some old PS1 game on PSN. Seems to me like the only people who really have to put in any work to get that done would be the legal department. They could probably leave an intern or something in charge of actually ripping the game data and uploading it to PSN.
is close to a million so SE probably did make 600k+ after Sony took a slice not that i care it' money I'll never see from Sony or SE
And why don't we get this in United States?
can't wait for psp go.
Why the Japanese always get all the best PSOne classics and we are not included? I hope Sony/Square release it here soon.
The japanese always get stuff like this first. Especially FF and DQ. FFVII was in the japanese store a good month before it hit the US store.
