I want to get the 3rd Birthday and Birth by Sleep... the thing holding me back is the possibility of Square releasing PS3 Remaster versions.

Same here. And if any company would do it it would be Square.

Everybody needs multiple versions of the same game.

It's just the right thing to do. :D

So, couple of things here:

  • I'm extremely tempted by 3rd Birthday at that price, but all I keep hearing is that the gameplay is seriously gimped on the PSP b/c of the lack of a 2nd analog stick. I'd hate to buy the UMD version only to find out that the digital version gets an update on the NGP to incorporate the extra analog stick. Any thoughts?
  • In terms of the core Final Fantasy IV experience, which is the best version to play: the PSP edition (updated sprites, lower difficulty, less random battles) or the DS edition (3D graphics, dungeon maps, enhanced difficulty). Any thoughts/suggestions would be appreciated.


I played a bit of 3rd Birthday and found it pretty boring and repetitive. I think a second analog stick would have helped, but not enough for me to want to finish the game.

As far as FFIV, it is a tough choice. I like the look of the DS version, but the PSP sprites do look pretty good, and this version definitely has far more content. I would opt for the PSP version.

I wouldn't expect PSP games to be updated to take advantage of the PSV's second stick. They're 2 wholly different systems even thought the PSV can play both. They're have to port 3rd Birthday to PSV to make it take advantage of the extra stick.

Any version of FFIV is a good one ^___^

I would assume anything with Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy in their name will automatically become greatest hits so I wouldn't fault anyone waiting for further drops.

Very good point. Especially since Final Fantasy 1, 2, and Crisis Core can all be found for $10 new now.

My understanding is that PS Vita will play PSP games with dual sticks -- the games don't need to be patched. The official FAQ on playstation.com says that Sony is looking in to a UMD-to-digital crossgrade process, but there's no promise.

Q: Can PS Vita users continue using their save data for PSP games that they have also downloaded from PlayStation Store to PS Vita?
A: We are looking into the opportunity to do so.

Q: PS Vita doesn't support UMD but do you have any plan to introduce peripherals like "UMD readers" for PS Vita?
A: We do not have plans to introduce such peripherals at this point in time.

Q: I have UMD games but do I need to buy them again from PlayStation Store to play the same game on PS Vita?
A: We will consider every possibility for support on bought UMD games but we have nothing to comment at this point in time.

Q: Will you bring all UMD games to the new game medium or on the PlayStation Store for PS Vita?
A: SCE with the support of third party developers and publishers have been offering select UMD titles on PlayStation Store and will continue our effort to deliver these content in the form of game medium for PS Vita going forward. However, we will need to clear all copyright / legal related issues and due to this not all software titles will become available on PS Vita. We will announce details for each title when ready.

I saw these sale prices last night and just hope the real sale prices just hadn't been implemented yet. Oh well, nothing for me. I should have gotten FFIV.

So I'm guessing the Turtle Beach PX21 is worth it at 51?

ya.. that raised my eyebrow. This sale is the worst of the 3 BY FAR. Absolute garbage selection and pathetic price drops. This coudn't even be called a sale

I think the handheld one was the best

Yeah, I laughed when I saw that.

This week's sale isn't very good. I might bite on FFXIII though...... might....... Ok I probably won't but it's still a game I need to add to my collection.

I really really want Top Spin 4 (being a huge tennis fan that hasn't bought a tennis game since two Virtua Tennis titles ago, but I think I'll wait for it to drop further than to $40.

Sharkoon X-Tatic 5.1 are worth it for $120. Works on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC, very sturdy build, and they're wired so no messing with batteries dying all the time.

Blur seems to be a good deal at that price, right?

What's the best way to control it (if I don't have a wheel controller)? Wired 360 controller?

Personally, I like the 3-cents off sale on Final Fantasy XIV the best. I don't think I can resist that kind of bargain ;)

I've played it on Xbox and it plays great on a controller. I really wish I could pick this up since I traded my xbox version in awhile ago.
