According to producer Shinji Hashimoto, the idea of bringing Final Fantasy IX to the Playstation Network got plenty of approvals when the subject was brought up during a recent Square Enix board meeting.
I already got FF 7, 8, 9, 10, 10-2, 12, 13 and tactics in discs, so this doesn't really make me excited at all. If they can put FFX on the PSN then hell yeah.
wow ys I'm really looking forward to it! It's one of the few 3D final fantasy that I have never played and from what I heard it has old school combat and story, which I like :P @crownbelt: OMG YEAH, a high definition remake of FFX like the GOW Collection!!! It's my favourite FF ever so I'd kill for that heheh
I want to see FFVII, VIII, IX HD port like Banjo kazooie on XBLA that would be way better
he is saying he wants FF VII, VIII and IX done in HD for the PSN (disagrees on that make no sense??)...the same way that XBLA did it for the Banjo Kazooie game. I'm all for that.
I wonder how that meeting went: Wada: People want FFIX on PSN, but for some reason we can't be bothered giving it to them, what should we do? Board Members: Does it cost anything? Wada: No. Board Members: Have FF7 and FF8 done well? Wada: Yes, they've been at the top of the PSN charts most months since release. Board Members: *c0ck their guns* Wada: Yeah, sorry I'm stupid, I'll go tell them to release it now. *walks away with bullet up ass*
Seeing as VII sold something like 100,000 downloads just one month after release...This does not surprise me.
OP: "I already got FF 7, 8, 9, 10, 10-2, 12, 13 and tactics in discs, so this doesn't really make me excited at all. " It's pretty F'n sweet news for people Rocking Sony official Firmware on their PSPs, though! Most of the PS1 classics play and look good on a PSP, more so than the PS3 in a lot of cases (due to the smaller size and lower res on the PSP screen). Those games are a great value for PSP owners since some of those games really are great designs. I think Sony's done a good job pricing the PS1 classics reasonably, too. This is a Win-Win, IMHO.
makes you wonder what the meeting for an FFVII remake would be like eh?
Awesome! I'll finally be able to finish this game. My second disk was scratched or something and i couldnt get past the desert dune area with some weird whirlpools... damn, that was years ago.
Who gives a $hit what you already have? Stop being such a proud moron, and be HAPPY for once in your life
Pretty sure that this and many other fan requested titles - Vagrant Saga, Einhander - have long been out on the JP PSN, yet Square is literally dragging their feet releasing them in the West.
I've read somewhere that there's a lot of licensing agreement going on before they can release an old title on the PSN.
My favorite FF of them all.Really hope this happens A.S.A.P
nice, can we have now Xenogears, Legend of Dragoon & Chrono Cross plx?
You have to talk to Sony about that one I believe.
FFIX is nice, but I would love it if they would release Chrono Cross and Xenogears. My PSPgo wants some more PS1 goodness.
FFX HD would be amazing!!! IMO, FFX has the best sound track of any game.
put some trophies on theses bad boys!!
YES! my FFIX disc 1 has broke so i could never start a new game, can't wait to download this!
Great game! Must play for everyone, no matter which genre you prefere.
I'll be buying this one.
After this, they hopefully release the other games starting by first two.
You can just download it from the internet for free and use an emulator
You can properly support the gaming industry and buy it if you really wanted it
all thing considered , i don't think ff9 need anymore support ... it is already profitable and square already got their money ... Even if i personally think that you should have your own physical copy of this great game
I would buy FFIX no doubt.
"because it is the 10th anniversary of the game, many board members approved of his idea." More like " hey , ff7 &ff8 are the most downloaded psones games on psn , we're making a sh*t load of money , let's make more !" kind of idea ?
That's perfect! Brilliant game! It would be great if they also could drag out Xenogears.
HD Final Fantasy X Please! I want to see Tidus + Yuna HD! XD
My favorite FF I would't mind having it right on my HDD. Day 1 for me.
We wont every see Parasite Eve on the PSN, if FF9 had to get mentioned and approved by a board meeting. One would think FF9 would be an automatic shoe-in for the PSN being FF's large install base of fans that would purchase the title.
I'm not sure if anyone on here realizes this game is available to purchase online for basically the price Sony will charge for the digital download.
....now get to work on Xenogears!
Maybe this is onestep closer to getting Xenogears onto the PSN
i saw Xenogears on JP PSN store :D
I know they'll try to butt**** people on the price. It will be 10 bucks as usual.
If there are licensing issues and probably the fact that they pay Sony for having content on the PSN, 10 bucks isn't too bad of a shake. They could make it 15 or 20. How many great 30-60 hour games with great soundtracks can you buy for $10? Not many. Did you feel screwed looking at Symphony of the Night for 10? I sure didn't.
Ignorant morons spouting off will be marked as SPAM if you have nothing to contribute. On topic: I can't wait to get this and have it with my other PS1 classics! :o)
i would porbably not put final fantasy v11 remake down its just that the graphics were so bad back then its like cancer for my eyes just slowly killing me
