You're kidding me, this should've been maybe 29.99 from my point of view, Sqaure Enix you disappoint me. Sad Confused

They gotta keep milking that cow Laughing. Not surprising in the least.

Yes, obviously SE is milking the series, and I have no plans to buy the HD remastered since I'm happy with my PS2 version (which I can play on my PS3, since mine is BC).

If this was like $30 and I hadn't already bought the previous remaster I might buy this. But why on earth anyone would spend $50 on this when you can get the previous remaster for about $20 right now is mind boggling. Short of a full blown rebuild of the graphics the game isn't going to ever look any better than it does on PS3. I mean it's a PS2 game for goodness sake. What possible improvement could a PS4 port offer?

Quite a few stats on the PS4 buyers are indicating that a good chunk are coming from either the PS2 or a different platform, so guessing it's primarily aimed at those who didn't get the PS3 HD Remaster because they skipped a system.

I know some folks like that who will be pretty happy about the news, since they did want the Remaster, but didn't have a PS3 just the 4.

I know the stats you're talking about, however I'm not sure those people are the audience for a Final Fantasy game. If you're interested in that property you'd probably have owned a PS3.

What's this "bonus audio"? If it includes the Japanese voice over, I'm buying this, otherwise I'll just stick to my PS3 copy.

Perhaps it'll include the music as listened to on PS2. The Vita/PS3 versions only contained rearranged tracks.

Of course, maybe it's a audiobook version of that horrible novel ...

Japanese audio, maybe. If so, I'll grab it.

Pretty much is a cash grab but I didn't get to take the PS3 or PS2with me, so I'm ok with a re-release of FFX and Kingdom Hearts 1.2/2.5 if they end u doing that as well.

Bonus Audio is a 30 minutes audio drama, which takes place after the events of Final Fantasy X-2.

As per the Japanese Audio, I wish they would add it this time, but I doubt they would do that -_-

(Unless they would give a reason for the PS3 and VITA owners to re-buy the game again :p)

Port Enix is fully utilizing the Playstation Port 4....why do I even own that system, is it to play all the retro games and PC ports in 1 place?

At least Type-0 is getting the visual upgrade. I am one of the people who've never owned a psp(a mistake I wholeheartedly regret =01), but I've heard great things about Type-0 that will encourage me to buy a ps4(which would happen sooner or later).

This rerelease of a rerelease doesn't add much to the table, unless they're going for ps4-level graphics; if not, then its just a ridiculous cash grab.
