Game Idealist takes a look as to whether or not the PS4 release of Final Fantasy X|X-2 Remaster Limited Edition is worth upgrading for existing owners of the PS3 and/or Vita versions.
But Square-Enix really needs your money to help finance the 12th and 13th years of development for FFXV! Along with all those new mobile games we've all been asking for.
Despite my hate for mobile games, it generates alot of $$$ hence why almost everyone will try to jump on to the band wagon Just because the vocal majority mainstream gamers won't buy them does not mean the non vocal minority won't. Because like the install base is huge, almost everyone in a household will have a phone You will be stupid not to develop for the mobile market
I think it is personally.
uh because its PS4? I am upgrading from vita.
Uh, it's the same game though, just a little bit better graphics.
The ps3 version had a lot of load time, I'd have to recommend the vita version.
Not for me, I played a LOT of FFXHD, got the platinum, I wouldn't want to do it all over again...... for the 3rd time in my life
Man, I hope to get the plat one day, but completing the sphere grid and dodging the lightning are too much atm lol
Don't remind me of the lighting. ...... Took me weeks! But getting it is beyond satisfaction. .a pure accomplishment. Worth it.
There's a certain area where you can quite easily dodge lightning bolts, that's what I did https://www.youtube.com/wat...
I totally screwed up on getting the plat for this game. I missed one of the al bhed primer that is a one time deal. If I want it I have to play all the way through where yuffies village was attacked.
^^^ Lol I did the EXACT same thing, had to play a big chunk of the game AGAIN
Lightning field is the easiest one after you figure it out. But that damn chocobo race! Screw that thing!
That wasn't even difficult, just time consuming. I've done this and the 0 sec score on the chocobo race multiple times, helping my younger brother and step dad with their games.
Thankfully, the trophy lists are shared. I may upgrade for that reason alone
My copy is already bought just waiting for the 12 of may -_-
Do you still have it on PS3, and is your PS3 still hooked up - NO Do you still play it? Of not - no. If you have never played before - sure, maybe. sick of last gen games being remastered and sold at full price. Release a discounted upgrade version like MSFT has always done for windows.
Simply don't buy them?
I have to say I'm actually surprised at how good the graphics look compared to the already remastered PS3 version. But without any real extras, no there's no point.
I probably get if it $20 since I didn't get it on Ps3
That box art is pretty nice though...
i miss the old school days of FF flying on a ship to where i need to go or boat or car .
Maybe when it's cheaper idk, already have the PS3 version
Not really. This is the same version for these once who missed PS3 version.
If you platinumed the game it's not worth it as it shares the trophy list. But I love the steelbook. I am conflicted.
When it's $20
I'm rebuying, but I got the PS3 version super cheap and I haven't played them yet.
why do we need an article for EVERY SINGLE REMASTER questioning if it is worth buying, this site is becoming a joke stop approving this garbage
I think the Vita is the best system for JRPG's since they take up alot of your time and playing them portable is much more attractive! Which is why I would rather the Vita version moreso the PS4 version if I was to buy it again! I hope they made an option for this version to skip cutscenes though, it got annoying really quick!
To each their own , i only played select jrpgs and a other titles on handhelds because those titles were only available there . I was never in love with the concept of handheld gaming , and most likely never will be . Seems to me that if if busy and moving around , it's harder to focus on gaming . then you always got batteries issues with longer games .. And finally i dont live in a place where it'd be quite safe to pull out such devices in public transportations , in the street or some park . i'm "ashamed" to say that i've mostly played hanheld indoors and would rather have those games on home consoles
I guess, I only play handheld indoors too, I mean playing the games anywhere within the household and the idea of pick up and play!
My Vita is used for JRPGs but only for JRPGs, and only because of their exclusivity. I always desire to play the same games on the PS3 or PS4 with better graphics, better performance, better sound quality, better controls, and better everything else. When I am not home, I am driving, at work, at school in class, socializing, dating, shopping, dining, and then driving back home. The only time I would actually get bored is at the clinic waiting room. I don't live in an area where I need public transportation and I haven't traveled by plane for over a decade. Exclusives of interest are the only reason why I game on handhelds regularly.
Sadly I buy every ff game if it has its name on it I buy lol .I may not like them all looking at you ff13 but I'm a hard core game Collector.
I have it on Vita and love the portability, I don't really think it needs better graphics than that.
I honestly preferred the remastered soundtrack, I wouldn't even do anything with the calendar, and I am not obsessed with graphics. So since I already have the Vita version, I don't think it is worth paying $50. I will still get the PS4 version eventually when I can get it for about $20. But $50 is too much for it.
If you have the disposable income by all means buy the game again and again! Its your money, do whatever you want with it.
This remaster of remaster is just milking us loyal fans. Personally i'm just sick of this. And i lost all hope square. Why no new ip? I used to buy consoles for sqare games. They dropped the ball long time ago. Burn in hell square your time is over for me.
I've never played any version of x or x-2 so looking forward to a new game
This is why I welcome remasters.
@slappy508 sure that's nice for you and young players alike. remastered vagrant story could be much better. Not to mention parasite eve. My q is where are gems like chrono trigger, secret of mana, kingdom hearts, unlimited saga? For us ps1 era guys past 7 years? I wonder. Wait on mobile.
nope should be a three way cross buy , I doubt few ps3 owners who have it are going to buy it again on ps4.
I'll probably get this but it won't be anytime soon though.
Never had a ps2 and didn't get it on ps3 so I'll grab it on ps4.
I want to own this on PS4- I honestly do. I just can't bring myself to buy this game for $50 when it was already out on the PS2, then I bought it on the Vita and beat it... No. It's like the game that gets released every generation for decades and decades. I'm only buying this game so many times.
i put in like 70 hours or something getting the platinum on PS3. There is no motivation for me to buy this
That's entirely down to the individual. There will be double, triple, and quadruple dippers without a doubt.
If they remastered the awesome cutscenes in true HD, I'd buy it again in a heartbeat.
They didnt even bother remastering FF VII's cutscenes...
This generation is kinda disappointing due to Remastered shit games..
I will buy this for the PS5 too when that comes out!
I've never played FF X, even the PS2 version, i'm thinking to buy the PS4 version, but i wouldn't mind to play for PS3. Decisions, decisions.
The only way I'm buying this again is if it comes to PC. I already have it on PS2 and PS3.
I'll be getting it because I didn't have a chance to on vita or PS3. Was planning on getting it for the Vita but the calendar is tempting plus I would prefer to play it on my TV. FFX was, and still is, my favorite FF to date. I must have played trough the game at least 4 or 5 times when it originally came out. FFX-2 was good too but it didn't feel the same without Tidus.
i understand the remastering on ps3. Going to HD adding trophy support and adittional content. Releasing on PS4 as a "rerelease of a remaster" is different. This kind of thing is bad for consoles.
Well, for $20 why not... only if you haveb't the PS4/PSVita version tho.
no, but not everyone has the ps3 version already.
I haven't played Final Fantasy 10 since I played on PS2. I am looking forward to playing this game again. I think the price is reasonable for two games in one. I had the oppourtunity to purchase it for PS3 but decided to wait for a release date for PS4. All in all I can't wait to play both games. I think as an added bonus they should include the XV demo with the purchase of the games.
