Since the launch of the Playstation 3 Sony has always said they were committed to their Playstation fans, and wanted to make the PS2 to Playstation 3 transition as easy as possible. In the early days backwards compatibility was a part of the plan.
"When fans see what Konami’s doing to the Metal Gear series, and what Square’s doing with Final Fantasy, they’re going to be very happy." Bloody Hell, can it be
I hope they're also working on KH HD Collection and make use of the Final Mix versions.
Along with a MGS HD Collection!
If they are, the world could end the week after it comes out and I'll die a happy man.
"Activision, EA , UbiSoft, Konami, and SquareEnix were all on board to issue ReMastered Edition of their best Playstation 2 Games" :)
I'm praying Zipper is reading these comments and makes a HD version of SOCOM 2. All I want is Fish Hook,Fox Hunt,and The Ruins.
Yes! KH FM 1&2! And FF 1-12!
I know i'm a MAJOR minority on this site, but I hate KH. There's only so much cheesiness I can take. Little Mermaid ... http://btx3.files.wordpress... I love the gameplay though, Versus 13 FTW
Come on capcom give me a few devil may cry in hd even if its just the first one.
I'll admit the game can get pretty cheesy, but the story and concept is just so good its hard to stop playing it. And in my opinion the game play is perfect with the exception of the camera. I would die a happy man when KH 3 comes out. Please no more handhald games. AI am also very very excited if there actually is a FF remake coming.
OMG, I'm more excited for the fact that they just said that Squeenix is working on HD remastered titles. Though I think only FFX on PS2 was actually good.
Indeed this does sound awesome :) Maybe what they could do is implement the download at 9.99 or whatever like they said, but if the customer could prove they owned an original PS2 copy they got a free/cheaper download? Would keep a lot of people happy, me included.
Please Square Enix, include Dragon Quest 8 on one of those remastered collections you are doing. Dragon Quest 8 is the only jrpg besides the pokemon games that I like.
I couldn't help but have a big fat grin on my face after reading that myself.. please, let it happen.
I got something big and fat too but it wasn't a grin
'...When fans see what Konami’s doing to the Metal Gear series, and what Square’s doing with Final Fantasy, they’re going to be very happy.' Oh my GAAAAAWWWWWDDDDDD!!!!! YESSSS!!! What many people don't realise is the potential of western gamers finally getting their hands on FF12 International Zodiac - the immensely improved version that was never localized! I love the art style used in FF12 and i'll pay obscene money to play it in HD with the new Zodiac license boards.
I'm afraid we will have to be more realistic. It is SquareEnix being talked about. I wouldn't be to far out of line to expect to see a simple HD bundle of Final Fantasy X and X-2 and that's it. I believe Final Fantasy X had an international version as well with more conent which we probably won't be seeing. I also wouldn't be suprised if they sold each of the Final Fantasy X games HD at $40 per rather than bundled at $40. I would also love to see Kingdom Hearts bundle that includes the Final Mix versions of both 1 and 2, but again this is SquareEnix we are talking about.
That's actually a huge bomb they dropped, and it wasn't even touched on in the title or anything. I guess it'll be the next 5 dupes of this interview to focus on that.
Your username says it all. A little. :)
when I read that quote LordMarius, I jizzed in joy. lol jk. But seriously, looks like Square Enix is going to need HD classics to profit from their financial losses. Smart idea in a long while, lol.
bring on the collections baby
Shadow of the Collosus alone made me believe that I will die very happy...but Metal Gear and a HD remake of Final Fantasy 7.. Tears of joy will fall from face Evil
There is no guarantee that they will ever remake PSOne games in this manner because they would take more work. Any PS2 game that spans multiple titles is fair game though, so if SE is doing Final Fantasy it will be FFX/X-2/XII. If they are doing Final Fantasy then it's logical to assume they will do Kingdom Hearts as well and hopefully it will be the Final Mix versions.
I currelty play FFVII Ultima Edition on my EEE Netbook, so amazing. To see all that amazingly adorably awesome pre-rendered backgrounds in FULL FREAKING 1080p HD ... wow!!! But I think is would be too good to be true, they would have to re-render all that stuff. Furthermore, it's a PS1 game .. they were talking about PS2 games. My guess would be FFX+FFXII. On a side note, they are SO MANY forgotten gems ... hundreds and hundreds of hours of amazing gameplay experiences from the past. It's a shame that so many are forgotten .. old "low budged" movies are being re-shown on crappy TV stations over and over, but old games.. so hard to get your hands on some of them.
Seriously. I've never played any Final Fantasy but keep hearing that FF7 is the best. I tried to play it but it was too damn ugly on an HDtv. If it comes out I'm buying it for sure.
J-COB you should pick up a PSP and play it on that.. makes all my ps1 games enjoyable again cuz I hate playing them on my HD as well lol
I'm praying that this would really happen. I want a Snake Eater hd-remake so bad.
I imagine if it did happen then it's also gonna be with MGS2 on a single disc.
Subsistence* (I know snake eater was the original name but subsistence is the better version)
...I'd buy it disc or download :)
I literally peed myself a little after reading the article.
