I didn't see a topic on this
http://www.amazon.co...fantasy box set
$123.49

http://www.gamestop....iii-ffix/116349
$129.99


i'll probably pick this up if the price is right, since i heard the guide for FFIX sucked.


Includes:
• The Final Fantasy Box Set is a must have for fans of this beloved series.

• The set includes hardcover versions of Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VIII and Final Fantasy IX,each comes with a ribbon bookmark and deluxe cover treatment.

• Each guide has been redesigned from scratch and updated with new high resolution screen shots. In
addition, the set comes with three iconic game images printed for first time as holographic lithographs.
• The three holographic prints are secured in a beautiful slipcase with magnetic closure.

Seems like a very random time to release such things.

If its truly the final fantasy boxed sex, I don't know if I can commit to that. What if I want more?
The trade list is long, but distinguished.

I wonder how the FFIX strategy guide is going to work when playonline or whatever that site was called isn't online anymore.

In other news, Square Enix goes into the porn business with the stars of FF VII, VIII, and IX in Playboy Magazine. I can see it...Oh God I want to unsee that in my head right now.

Obviously I knew HD Re-releases of games would be a thing, but HD re-releases of guides now?

Man SE, are really trying to make the next fiscal quarter selling 3 strategy guides, beautifully remastered for 129.99. Unless those strategy guides were gold plated and personally signed by Amano, Uematsu, Sakaguchi, its a no buy for me.

You think the sex is so good it'll fix the disaster that was the FFIX guide?

I can't see why this is a deal. Who wants to buy a guide for video games when you can get help from Gamefaqs? 

 

This is just a waste of money for in-game screenshots and shiny pics in a hardcover.

 

I was happy enough to pick up a copy of The Sky art books illustrated by Yoshitaka Amano for $19.03.

Yeah, it makes me wonder if Square Enix is going to be doing something with those games, like another HD collection(the title could still be a place holder) or just a Blu-ray/Vita cart version of the PSN stuff on sale right now.

The X and the T keys aren't even close to each other. Someone's figures must have only been typing out of muscle memory. 

Also OP, you didn't see a thread for this because you're in the "Deals" forum. These are at MSRP. An extremely overpriced MSRP to boot.

There's never been a better application of the phrase "don't pay for it". Especially with the whole boxed sex thing, that's just dirty.

On a serious note, will this actually have a FIXED FF IX strategy guide, or will it again hide most of the relevant info behind a site that no longer exists?

Probably the same way it did back in 2002 when they realized it was an idiotic idea to have a printed guide that tells you to visit a website for all of the information. They've always been prone to stupid ideas, though, like making Dragon Quest Wii into an on-rails shooter and ditching the Chrono Trigger series to make the piece of shit known as MindJack. I would swallow a load from this hot garbage if it only came with a sequel to that amazing series.

The stupidity is large in this thread...

 

BradyGames made the original official guides for these games. These are supposedly rewritten by PRIMA. And there's no word if they're official or not from what I could tell. Square-Enix would have nothing to do with this to boot besides official licensing at best.

 

But yes, they are indeed ridiculously priced, no matter how "beautiful" they may be.

I mainly bought guides for the art and secrets I missed back in the day, but FF9 was where I stopped and just used the Internet. I was tempted to add it to my collection, but I was told it wasn't even worth $5 with it frequently asking you to use PlayOnline.
