Hopefully they are taking the time to add a quality emulator but I doubt it

I'm going to be out of the country for the entirety of the FF week, so I'll probably have my wife log in for me.

I already own portable versions of 1-6 on the GBA, DS, and WonderSwan Color. I've had my fill of 7 and won't rebuy that until they make a redone version. I don't own 8 on disc and will probably grab that, and to be able to play 9 on a portable is also worth my money.

One odd consideration, and one that makes me still want to pick up 8 on disc some day, is that I assume that there isn't a way to access the Chocobo World minigame since there's no way I can fathom to attach a Pocket Station to a PS3. (The US release on PS1 claimed to have edited out the game, but it was fully functional if you happened to have the Japan-only peripheral. The PC release added a built-in emulator.) Granted, all that the minigame uniquely adds to the full game is an extra ability for one of your junctions, hardly a game breaker.

Wait what>? I thought we just decided that the only games that could be played on the go were FF4 and FFtactics. I must have missed something.

Or can PS1 games be played on the PSP, but not on the VITA?

All of the FF games that will be in the sale are playable on the PSP. The Dissidia games also work on the Vita, according to the CAG list.

Vita will (hopefully soon) be getting a firmware update that will allow it to play PS1 games. Why it didn't launch with that capability, I have no idea.

I see I see.... so I should buy this, in anticipation, that I can one day play them on my Vita, hmmm. Tempting... I might get IX just incase then. the ones I can play right now though on my vita are still IV and Tactics though. So I'll get those 3 then.

Wait wait! I Actually own FF IX. Can I play it through my VITA by sharing through my Ps3 (Remote connection)

Is there any point in playing Dissidia before 012? Or is the story disjointed and the sequel just a better game?

That's because PSN didn't exist when the PSP came out and PS1 Classics weren't offered for a while after that, so it wasn't possible by any stretch at or near launch.

That's right. PSP hit in late 2004, PSN in Nov of 2006, and PS1 games were made available the following month.

I guess should have gone into a little more detail with my previous post. The point I wanted to get at is that Sony basically had almost a two year window to prep PS1 emulation for the PSP hardware, whereas they didn't have that luxury this time around and therefore it'd take a bit of time to get things running on the Vita.

There isn't unfortunately, however when I had the game on my PSP I downloaded a save file from gamefaqs which started the game at the first save point with 99 of all the chocobo world items and the extra ability already earned.

Thanks for the heads up OP! I will be picking up a 3 months PS+ subscription since the FF games i will be buying will save me $12, really only costing me $6 for those 3 months which i will probably use for something else.

the only reason i dont like PS+ is that once you don't have the subscription anymore, you no longer own the games either.. which sucks..

If you bought them with the discount you do. Its just the free games you don't keep

yeah i have ff tactics, 6,7,8,9, all on ps1 disk (6 on gba) but how often have i put those in my ps3, never. so it might be worth it to get 6, tactics and maybe 7. i liked those the most. 8 and 9 i played and beat but never really enjoyed them too much. junction/draw system was horrible(in my opinion). i wish i could get xenogears for cheap or ct version that played well on my ps3, oh wellz.

i so wish they had trophies, but oh wellz...., i would have totally platted all of these in the past ;)
I so can't wait for DMC collection, Silent Hill collection, and recently announced Ratchet and Clank collection, woot! blasts from the past!

Looks like Real Steel will be the $0.99 rental on the PS Store for this weekend starting at 2 PM PST on Friday for people that are interested.

I didn't know they are bringing back the theatrical throwdown from last year. I rented a good amount of movies from that promotion, saved me gas from heading to a redbox. Glad Sony is doing it again, going to get Reel Steel for the $0.99.Posted Image

Anything good to get right now for $10 bucks. I have $24 on my account, but when I get FFOrigins and FFVI, I will have $10 leftover.

Hey guys quick question to those that have PS+. Do the discounts apply to all games? or just the ones that are on sale that particular week? I wanna try out PS+, but it seems it benefits PS3 owners the most. I currently only have the PS Vita.

PS+ is a PS3-focused service. Discounts apply to the specific games that are on sale and a small selection of persistently-discounted titles.

If you only have a Vita, I would not get PS+. All the free stuff and content from PS+ has been targeted at PS3. Only reason PSP can get in on some things is because all minis and PS1 classics work on it by design. The vita only supports a few PSP games, no PS1 classics, not sure about PS minis. The only thing I could think of that PS+ can offer you right now are some free avatars...

It looks like Motorstorm RC is free this week for the Vita. I have one coming, but it won't get here until next week. Is it possible to get in on this without accessing the store through the Vita?

It's been several years since I've accessed with the PSN store, so I'm behind the curve.

You need a Vita or PS3 to get it. It's been free since 3/6, so we don't know when it'll end.

Agreed, and I'm sick of Sony shoving that garbage in my face every time I turn on the PS3. Everybody has different tastes, something the video game companies don't seem to understand anymore.


You know next week is all old school Final Fantasy games on sale right? I can't think of a better example of a video game company understanding that people have different tastes than to offer CoD and FF weeks back to back.
