I think it's pricing error because first off, it's Square Enix, but then the games are also coming to the Vita. With most Vita games coming out at $39.99 when they launch, this would have to come out at $30 or $20 to not piss off Vita owners over pricing.

Then again, all other HD Collections except for MGS HD Collection launched at $39.99, so maybe there's that. But they did enhance this version rather than just a HD rerelease, so who knows.

This is the correct price. The Vita versions are being split up and sold separately, so $20 each would make sense.

Yeah, but at equal pricing it would be selling at $20 each for the Vita games. Or $30 each if they wanted to push it. I don't see them selling the Vita games at $20 each.

I'd wait for more information before preordering, there's still a possibility of cross-buy with the ps3/vita versions, and square is anything if not random with the promotions/changes they make to things.

I'm just happy this thing is finally looking like it's gonna come out. No 360 release then I take it, just Vita and PS3? PS3 it is then. Can't wait for Blitzball, here's hoping they have online for that, would love to play against others in it.

Considering how terrible square is at life and how greedy their 16 dollar ff ports on iPhone is, no way they do cross buy

This is assuming that the Vita ports are sold at retail, I could see Square selling than at $20 a piece if they're digital only. Seeing as how the Vita versions are confirmed for release, yet no one is preordering those versions, leads me to believe they may be PSN only releases,

This. I've probably put in more time playing Blitzball than any other mini game on a video game. Even after getting the special items I'd just keep playing it. Half the time I played the game was spent in Blitzball.

If Square Enix made a game specifically for Blitzball, set it up like MLB The Show or another sports game with your regular game, season mode, modes where you have certain funding and can draft players, trade players, etc. I'd buy it. They should name it. Blitzball: Best Sports Game Ever '13.

Yeah, I guess it could be this. I think this is a bad move if Sony doesn't atleast try to persuade them to do both digital and physical, and atleast partially fund the physical release on grounds they'd make some money back. Having physical copies out there in stores is advertisement in itself. Especially a big name series like Final Fantasy. Port or not, I think FF10 and 10-2 would get people interested if they see them at Gamestop, Walmart, etc.

Well at least they are optimistic about the company survivability. They are already planning a sequel to FFXIX when they haven't made FFXVI yet. I can't imagine that it will be on the current gen consoles though. For that matter it may not be on this impending generation unless they start cranking these out a little faster. Good price if the next next gen titles end up costing more than the current $60 standard price tag.

I would suspect 'status quo' won't be good enough for Square Enix moving forward. They are losing a ton of money and the Yoichi Wada just resigned.

They've got to make some changes moving forward, don't they?

Subtle. I like it.

Meh. Playing this on PS2 was enough for me

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

No, December 31st is just Amazon's placeholder date. I do believe that this game is set to be released this year, i think fall?

Those are placeholder dates. Kingdom Hearts is said to come sometime during fall. No word on release window for FFX/X-2 yet.

Oh, I agree. Square would be pretty dumb not to release these at retail. Honestly, I'd much rather have these on the Vita, as it would let me play them while the TV is in use, but in order for me to consider it they'd have to be available in at retail with a comparable price to the PS3 version. If they're digital only, I'll likely just go with the PS3 version and just get around to it in between Tales of Xillia and Kingdom Hearts HD.

This im actually waiting until after release so I can rent/borrow a copy. I want to see what each game looks like on each system first.

Or I just might buy for Vita and PS3 :(

Don't be silly, this is Final Fantasy, there will definitely be in store copies. The brand name is still rather strong and people will buy if they see it. Especially this since this is FFX.

Even Japanese people hated Yoichi Wada, calling him a greedy SOB. I'm glad he resigned. Never again, Square Enix, never again.

On the fence with this one considering i still have the ps2 versions. If the visiuals are a well enough improvement, may pick this up.

Maybe i'm wrong, I thought I read that $39.99 was the official price of the X and X-2 HD Collection? The PS3 version is being released physically for $39.99 and on the network for $19.99 a piece, however the Vita version is only being released for $19.99 each on the Network and not physically? I thought I read it in an official statement from Sony or Square-Enix, I could however be wrong. Time to go searching I suppose.

This would be a perfect game to promote the cross-buy in my opinion. Especially since the games will be on PSN only anyway for the vita.

Edit: so they remade every game so far except 7, 8, and 9? Why skip the PS1 classics, square? Hell, even ffxiv had a remake!

The Amazon page has some screenshots and a video up showing the facial texture changes mainly... Tidus looks kinda weird with the new face IMO, Lulu's looks nice though.
