This is a sort of deal and was posted in the discussion thread, but since it's only $9.99 I've posted it in the deals section--mods feel free to move.

Available on PSN right now for only $9.99 is the classic FFVII. As I'm sure you all know this can be downloaded and played on either your PS3 or your PSP...

This is not really a deal since it is going to be on PSN for some time and is not on sale....if we posted all the PS1 classics here it would just clog up this forum.....

I debated whether or not to post it...but it was a surprise E3 release and I know people have been waiting for it...Additionally the speculation was that the price was going to be either $14.99 or $19.99.

I feel bad for the guy who is buying this on ebay for 49.99

To be fair, a $100 PS2 and a $50 FF7 are still combined cheaper than a PSP or PS3. $150 is a solid down payment on a PS3, though.

I wonder..are all loading times gone with this since it doesn't need to read off a disc? There was a slight delay on the PS1 version every time you moved into a new area while the scene loaded. Is that gone?

They once again break their own fixed-price for PS1 games on PSN ($5.99).

Digital distribution is the death of the preservation of the arts.

They've broken this quite a few times...off the top of my head:

Resident Evil $9.99
Castlevania SOTN $9.99

They vary in size, but FFVII is considerably larger than the others at 1.32GB's.

I never noticed that delay, and I played the heck out of FFVII. If anything, it was in battles where it would very rarely take slightly longer to load the characters/enemies.

And yes, the loading times are still there. They might be slightly faster, but not instant as you would probably expect. It just wasn't programmed to run off a HDD (or flash).

Ive been waiting for this for a long time; I've never played it.

Should I stop playing Crisis Core and start with FFVII?

Most of them are under 500 MB but they do vary. Final Fantasy VII, however, is 1.32 GB since it is a compilation of the 3 compact discs the game originally came on.

Yeah but for 10 bucks you won't hear a single fuss from me. This game is worth full price. I just hope we see a trend of good PS1 games coming to the PS Store.

YES!

I would gladly pay $100 knowing how good it is. I've been gaming since 1986 and it's my favorite game of all time. It's not a casual game though..not something you can pick up for 10 minutes at a time. It's best to isolate yourself in a dark room and sink a good 3-4 hours into it each play session. The game is 60 hours long so you'll need to if you ever hope to finish it. ;)

This should be $5.99. Not knocking the game, but it's just a digital version of a game that came out in 1997.

Cool that they released this, but why has it taken Sony so long to put it on PSN? Would be a must buy for $5.99 like Suikoden.

I wouldnt mind them throwing ff8 on there, i have a copy but never finished it, tho it seemed interesting i liked it from what i played.

i need to grab my original copy from my friend *not the greatest hits, the OG with the black bar, its in good condition too, i loaned it to him a few months ago cuz he was sayin how he couldnt find it anywhere... i hope he didnt damage it lol*

Man. I remember playing this shit when I was like in 5th/6th grade. I put 72 hours into it.. and I got to the very last battle.. but I couldn't get myself to finish it because I LOVED THE GAME SO DAMN MUCH. Fruity.. I know. I seriously won't mind playing this for another 40-50 hours. I remember I purchased my villa.. and I would just go there for fun for no damn reason. Haha.

I have a PSP but I don't play it much... and I was planning to get FFVII when/if it came out on PSN. Sadly I pay little attention to the memory and I just realized I only have a 1 GB memory card. Shit! :(

Not sure I can cough up the money on a memory stick for a $10 game I've already played. I just wanted to be able to replay it on my PSP.
