Was all excited for the Final Fantasy sale then quickly realized it's not live yet. Which the heck dissidia do we want? And I am guessing all the PS1 games are straight ports, crappy graphics and all?


Duodecim contains the original Dissidia's campaign as an unlockable after you finish the game, so get that one. PSOne versions are ports with some minor updates, but I don't remember what they all are. I think each has an opening and ending movie that was added, and some include updated translations. (assuming you meant 1-6, 7-9 are the same as ever)

well, screw best/worst, none of these games are so bad as to not be worth $5-$10. Even FFV+VI for PS1. They may not be the best versions of the games, but they're still FFV and FFVI

This is a wise man. 100% agreed. I'm only in for FFVI to further clog my overstuffed Vita and prodigious backlog; the only reason it isn't more games is because I already own most of them in PSN form...

FYI, Jetpack Joyride (free version) was quietly patched to include button support. It feels more precise pushing a button than touching the screen, I like it a lot.


Thanks! Gonna try that out later!

We all know what the REALLY best Final Fantasy game is.

.....it's X-2, right? (though in all honestly, I'd buy it as a PS2 Classic just to replay it & finish it). I kid, but in all seriousness, to each their own.

But like Graff said, get Duodecim over the original. It has the original game/story & adds a TON of new content and gameplay changes, similar to something like Super Street Fighter 2 or 4. You won't really miss out on anything if you don't play the original aside from the downgrade in how the Story Mode map & such was done.

whoa, hey, i was just making a joke about DD refunds! This happens to all of us-- anyone who has ever bought something full price from a DD service runs this risk.

I bought Persona 3 Portable for $40 a week before it dropped to $20.


I know you were joking about giving him a refund. I know you won't be sending a random CAG any money. Just saying they would have better luck getting something from you which would be ZERO. We all have gotten screwed over DD but its what we get when jump the gun.

Sucks to hear about paying $40 for P3P then seeing a drop but you realize its all part of the system.

People will always :cry: about this so I've gotten used to it. Very RARELY will SONY refund a purchase.

Should I sell my sealed Greatest Hits PS1 version of Final Fantasy IX and buy the PSN version instead? How about my mint black-label copies of FF Anthology and FF Origins?

I don't have a PSP or a PS Vita, so I'd be playing them on the PS3 only.

I also have FF V and VI sealed on the GBA, and I've heard those versions are superior, so I'd probably play those instead of Anthology anyway.

Been wondering this myself. Then I remember that the copies that I own are in fact the copies I purchased on release day and was super excited to own way back when and then I get all nostalgic.

I may just go for FFIV Complete, and Dissidia already owning II and III for SNES, Origins, Anthology, and 7-9 on PS1, Tactics on PS1 and PS+, etc.

I too have them all on disc still (except 7... Loaned it out and a disc went missing.) But I will still be buying them again because at this price my vita will love them too.

For $5 each, buy the digital ones and keep your sealed disc copies!

The GBA ports are superior to the PSX ports, at least to me they are. The PSX port of V has Faris speaking in this horrible pirate dialect the whole game, which was toned down immensely in the GBA game. The GBA ports were also somewhat optimized for the platform (slight widescreen) and some bonus content.

I was around when they were released and I say otherwise ;).

VI is great though, easily my second favorite behind IV. I still fight the urge to call them 2 and 3 instead of 4 and 6 though. I'm probably one of three people that didn't like IX. I really should have, good nostalgia (maybe too much), nice skill system...I just didn't like the characters (except Vivi and Steiner, they were cool) or story. I'll probably try it again to see if my opinion changed, as it was somewhat colored by the piece of shit strategy guide that came out with it.

It's not really a waiting game though. Sony typically does their updates around the same general time each week. It's not completely static, but if you're sitting there waiting for the sale to go live all day, you're doing it wrong.
