Wow, that looks like an awesome collection to have. If only all the games could be played on the Playstation 3, then I would seriously consider buying this.

The only ones not playable on PS3 are III, X, XI, and XII, and you can get a PS2 for dirt cheap nowadays to play X-XII. And yes, PS3s do, in fact, play PS1 games, I have FF Anthology and play it on my PS3 (and no, my PS3 isn't backwars-compatible with PS2 games, just PS1 games).

Anyways, if this comes overseas, I hope it comes out the middle of next year... That would be an AWESOME graduation present.

There they go again, re-releasing their old products countless number of times and not actually producing any quality new games in the series. It is a nice collector item I must admit, but seriously, they should already release versus or ff15

There are some versions of the PS3 that are compatible with past games. However the recent versions aren't.

Edit: I apologize. I just checked an old ps1 game I had lying around and it looks like it does work. Excuse me while I go shoot myself in the foot for the past year that I spend grumbling. Looks like I had only bothered checking a ps2 game when I bought my PS3.

Once again, sorry for not believing you and thanks for making me realize haha. Damn, now I'm feeling nostalgic. Time to pull out some old games I had given up on haha.

Now that's one sexy bit of kit. I believe the only ff's I've played are ff7-10, 12-13-2, and 5. It'd be a good way for me to play the really old ones and see what their about. Now if they just give me information on FF Versus 13 I'll be set.

I wouldn't mind that Surprised. Though I probably wouldn't be able to afford it even if it did come out in english.

Okay so...you just blew my mind. I've had the PS3 slim for a little over a year and had NO idea at all. I thought they took backwards compatibility out entirely with the redesign. Definitely gonna play some old PS1 games tonight Very Happy

And yes this set is pretty darn awesome. I would like that print.

Pretty sweet set. I wish I could buy it and get all the ones I haven't played yet (and maybe even give "X" and "XII" a second chance), but there's no way I can come up with that kind of money by the end of September.

If it makes money for Square, I wouldn't blame them. The purpose of a business is to provide customers with things they will buy. As long as customers are buying and Square is profiting then business is doing okay.

Occasionally Square does release something new, but it doesn't hurt to make money off old either.

Yeah plus they are only producing as much as they receive in preorders, sounds like a pretty solid business plan to me.

Like said before in the thread, you can't play PS2 games on the PS3.

I think at least most would of preferred I-XII all get their own disc, and then of course XIII on its own.

PS2 games run fine on my PS3. I kinda forgot some newer models don't do that, so its all good for me at least.
