When you say:

Final Fantasy (PSOne Classics)
Final Fantasy II (PSOne Classics)

Do you really just mean Final Fantasy Origins will be $5 since it has both?

If you have no played or bought Final Fantasy 7, this is a great chance to pick it up. The game is seriously amazing and you will not regret it. Graphics are bad but the plot is priceless. I can honestly say that it is my favorite gme of all time and it has been since I bought it on my ps1 way back then. FF8 is also a very good game so if you only plan on buying a few then I would recommend those 2 by far over the others personally.

I was hoping for a FF III discount…i will get FF VIII thoug

SpooNManX said:

February 4th, 4:12 pm

So all of the PSOne Classics will work on the PS Vita right?

If this is the case I’ll buy them all, but please let me know for sure because I couldn’t find them on the various compatibility lists.

Is Dissidia 012 Prologus worth it? Or I save my 1.50 Dlls to buy other thing?

SolduNuts said:

Why I ask, why is Crisis Core not on the PSN Store. There are 1 million Vita’s in the marketplace and I am sure that many people would love to finally be able to play this game including me. Why not give me the chance to add this game to my all time favorite franchise collection? I will be buying FF IX since I seem to not own that one, but I own every single other titled because like I said this is my favorite franchise ever. I would also like my voiced heard about other Sqaure games not available digitally, but I really want Crisis Core. Why does Square (and Konami for that matter) not want sales from games that are already made just not released digitally?

PLEASE BRING CRISIS CORE TO THE PSN STORE FOR VITA.

Sold.

ElPresidentEvil said:

February 4th, 4:20 pm

@SpooNManX

From VII to IX will surely work on the Vita, altough I dont know if you can use the transfer from PS3 method to play I, II and VI on the Vita.

favian said:

February 4th, 4:22 pm

why isn’t crisis core on psn? I only purchase digital. I’m not a fan of UMDs

KazeEternal said:

February 4th, 4:39 pm

BRING FFV on VITA!
BRING CRISIS CORE TO PSN/VITA!
BRING STAR OCEAN 1&2 TO PSN/VITA!

KazeEternal said:

KazeEternal said:

February 4th, 4:41 pm

@ElPresidentEvil & @SpooNManX

You can transfer your PS3 saves to the Vita and back again for PSOne classics. You can use this method to also transfer over saves from the PSP to the PS3 to the Vita for PSOne Classics and PSP Classics.

I’m going to get some of these…that I already own. That’s how I roll now.

Stuffgamer1 said:

February 4th, 4:46 pm

Already have everything I want from that list. If you want my money, I suggest releasing Crisis Core, Type-O and the PSP versions of FFI and FFII on PSN.

grbolivar said:

WOOOO!!!! This made my DAY!

El_Flash said:

February 4th, 4:53 pm

too bad they dont release crisis core or birth by sleep on psn. Two of the best psp games. Only reason i still have my psp, but would be so much better to have these on the Vita. Get with the times Square!!!

MarkakaJin said:

February 4th, 4:54 pm

Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep as a digital copy and playable on the PS Vita, please. Pretty please with cherry on top. I’m begging hardcore here, Square-Enix.

midnightshade said:

February 4th, 4:55 pm

FF V on vita yet? I heard Europe has it, why don’t we? I love FFV, and I can’t play it on my vita .. .ugggh!!!

Oh yeah, where is type-0 (agito), and versus?

Mando44646 said:

February 4th, 4:59 pm

MarkakaJin said:

February 4th, 5:03 pm

Teflon02 said:

February 4th, 5:07 pm

Why isnt FFIII on sale too? I own all but 3 and duodecum and would have bought both -.- damnit.
Please make FFV vita compatible
Please put Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII & KHBBS on PSN/Vita
Type-0 is all

steepo27 said:

February 4th, 5:12 pm

I wish those were all cross-platform compatible!

Squirtbot said:

February 4th, 5:13 pm

A sale on all the horrible PS One and PSP games that everyone already owns or doesn’t care to buy anyway, hooray !

ryuuseiSoul said:

February 4th, 5:15 pm

When is the promotion starting? I checked PSN just now, and the prices are still the same.

Zerokoolpsx said:

February 4th, 5:22 pm

Will it be cheaper for ps+ members?

ATFrez said:

February 4th, 5:28 pm

What in the world ever happened to Final Fantasy X HD? I would really like to see that sometime soon!

ShatokaMTN said:

February 4th, 5:31 pm

I’m glad to see that those of us in the US are finally getting to hit up this sale. When it passed through Europe and went radio dark, I must admit that I got a bit nervous. Still, crisis averted! I’ll definitely be picking up a couple of these games (Duodecim, anyone?) tomorrow.

Sefier said:

February 4th, 5:44 pm

I think I own all of these except IV. Let’s see if my 32gb could squeeze another FF game on it!

Kchow23 said:

February 4th, 5:50 pm

I would love to play a brand new Dissidia title for the PS Vita… make it happen Square Enix!!! :)

awesome discounts :D

Warms me heart, the love and clamour for FFV. Just a shame it’s the PS1 version. So lifeless, not to mention the iffy porting those releases had (Chrono Trigger was painful on there, especially after my initial exposure through the NDS experience). Whenever you get around to the mobile version of FFV, be sure to bring it out as, like, a Cross-Buy/Play title for PSN and PSV, GBA translation and all. I would love.

JeanLucAwesome said:

February 4th, 6:11 pm

I’m guessing this comes along with tomorrow’s update.

UnholyBahamut said:

February 4th, 6:16 pm

Come on, we want the PSP version of FFI and FFII, who do we have to threaten to make it happen?

TJF588 said:

February 4th, 6:23 pm

@29 swissmr – If you have a PSP/Vita, I’d say FFIV Complete Collection. It’s the spiffiest version of the classic game (a 3D remake has been released on Nintendo DS and iOS), and comes with extras, including its sequel, The After Years.

If it’s PS3 only, I’d say FFIX. FFVII has aged kinda oddly (though if you do, name her “Aerith”; it’ll make life easier on you), and FFVIII’s system takes some getting used to, but FFIX is rather classic in its style.

I’d recommend avoiding the PS1 versions of FFI/II, FFV, and FFVI mostly due to either translation (particularly FFV) or shoddy porting (slow-opening menus, etc.). For FFI and FFII, either the PSP (UMD-only, in North America) or mobile versions, especially for FFII. For FFV and FFVI, I’d say the Game Boy Advance versions, if you can (and, if you can, the European releases, which have a few more bug fixes while retaining American English scripts); if you must, FFVI would also be viable on the Wii’s Virtual Console (as “FINAL FANTASY III” on Super NES).

After you get through some games, definitely pick up DISSIDIA 012 (and, perhaps, Prologus). So many references and such. You can really fanboy out on there.

TJF588 said:

February 4th, 6:25 pm

And to all interested (if you scroll back to this undoubtedly moderation-requisite post), someone has gone through and reviewed each main-line FINAL FANTASY (along with MYSTIC QUEST, TACTICS, and FFX-2) up to FFXIII, all in their earliest states (sans translation patches where applicable). Really worth a read, though thar be spoilars, yaharr: http://www.socksmakepeoplesexy.net/index.php?a=patff

Quick question that maybe someone can answer:

I own the PS1 disk version of FFV. I tried to play it on my PS3 over the weekend, but I was having issues with the game (it would occasionally lock up when I went to save). Does the PSN version of the game suffer from this problem as well? I’d love to play through it again, but I don’t have my old PS1 or PS2 anymore.

Belkan2087 said:

Time to buy FF VIII.

ArchAngelMai said:

February 4th, 7:27 pm

@14, really, that’s all you make…sad.
Took long enough, was hoping we might see Chocobo’s Dungeon 2 and Chocobo’s Racing by now, but I will take what I can get. Spending $5 on the lousy port of FFVI is almost feasible.

Vextalon said:

February 4th, 7:31 pm

I can get a $50 PSN card and pick up Final Fantasy V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, tomorrow. Is there a 75% sale for Plus members. Though I’m curious as to if I can play all of these games on my Vita.

So my question is this Sony, All the games that are in this sale can they all be played on the Vita and if not how soon until we get an update for this?

Rynoseros said:

February 4th, 7:39 pm

Any possibility of ever porting the dissidia to the ps3? it would be so easy, controls more of less straight transfer over to a controller, and it’s already on the network? I love the franchise but have no access to playing it!

KnifingGrimace said:

February 4th, 7:47 pm

Thanks, Square… but please, please release the digital versions of Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy II for PSP. The Origins versions are not fun at all to me compared to the PSP versions.

ryuuseiSoul said:

February 4th, 7:48 pm

@Rynoseros, It’s a bit more complicated than that. Coding, rendering, engines, and all.
Short answer is likely no.

PPPottypants said:

February 4th, 8:04 pm

I should be happy, but this wasn’t the same SquareEnix deal that went around everywhere but PSN last month… which was 50% off just about EVERYTHING in their catalog (Hitman Absolution was something like 25% off since it was new, which was the only thing PSN did get). Actually kinda disgusted to be honest.

PPPottypants said:

February 4th, 8:06 pm

Also, no FF3 PSP? Why?

edjamer said:

February 4th, 8:17 pm

This is terrible news! Without any regard for how poor I am, you just open my wallet and take out money this way for so many wonderful games. Chalk me up for at least three games this week.

(Fantastic sale, by the way… FAN-friggen’-TASTIC.)

Where’s Final Fantasy Tactics for PSOne?!

TwinDad said:

February 4th, 8:38 pm

I had an incredibly awesome time at the 25th anniversary party for FF held at PAX prime. The ability to play each FF numbered release on it original system was wonderful. I never had a chance to play a famicom before and to replay FF7-9 on the PS1 was super fun.

Thanks for the good times, the memories, and the sale.
