IGN is an advertisement site, not a review site.

The amount of games on PS3 and Vita is just madness right now its constant releases every month now.. currently busy with Tales of Symphonia chronicles and later on Toukiden :D

Dang! Too many games on my Vita! Now I have to rush through Danganronpa. By the way that is a tremendous score.

The general consensus from the reviews I've read say the PS3 version is a good bit prettier than the Vita version.

@finalstar2007: Play toukiden it beats monster hunter by a mile :)

#10 Posted by XboxDone74 (2047 posts) -

@___gamemaster__: amen to that

#11 Posted by XboxDone74 (2047 posts) -

the domination has won

#12 Posted by locopatho (20355 posts) -

I wish it was FF12 rather than X-2. Still gonna grab it though :)

#13 Posted by freedomfreak (40883 posts) -

Another HD collection I'm gonna pick up, play for a few hours, and then never touch again!

#14 Posted by TTUalumni13 (496 posts) -

Reviews are pretty worthless in this case, I know what a great game X is and will be picking it up later this month!

#15 Posted by yokofox33 (29867 posts) -

Yay. Super stoked for these games. My friend like took my PS2 copy of FFX and just gave it to someone. Never replaced it for me. Douche.

#16 Posted by hiphops_savior (7939 posts) -

Sounds like a solid 8 on GS. It's a better game than KH1+2, and there are enough new goodies to justify a buy. That said, lip syncing is still a flaw and there are some rough edges that was ported over from the PS2 version.

Just finished watching the IGN review and the reviewer said its exactly on the vita as it is on the ps3

Think I'll get them for PS3 later on.

#21 Posted by KungfuKitten (21129 posts) -

Yay a JRPG HD version.

Already own them for PS2 and they sucked. Slapping a newer paintjob on it isn't going to change that for me.

#23 Posted by Krelian-co (11157 posts) -

Probably pick it up when i clear some of my backlog

#24 Posted by ni6htmare01 (975 posts) -

I'm going to buy it for both PS3 and Vita

#25 Posted by PyratRum (561 posts) -

FFXII IZJS HD would have been the better choice.

FFX sucks some major donkey balls. Still gonna buy it though.

#26 Edited by Netret0120 (2196 posts) -

I was picking this up regardless. This just confirms its awesomeness. The nostalgia is gonna be amazing:-)

Its worth having a look at reviews for HD collections. They are generally good but I remember the SIlent Hill one was meant to be very bad.

Hoping they make this available somehow for me PS4. Absolutely LOVE FFX and really want this HD version, but I only have a PS4 and no PS3...

lolno

That comparison doesn't work because the review doesn't say they look the same; it says the PS3 version looks as good on the big screen as the Vita version does on the small screen.

And TBH for the most part that is true until you play FFX-2 HD (Vita) where the textures alternate between a decent low resolution samples and impressive high resolution ones.

Low resolution area in FFX-2 HD (Vita) - on par with FFX HD (Vita)

High resolution area in FFX-2 HD (Vita)

The difference is much more apparent when these shots are viewed on the Vita screen (save them through the Vita browser and see for yourself).

meh. I played FFX before and to be honest I didint think it was that great. Espcially the bleh love story.

#33 Posted by Suppaman100 (3935 posts) -

Doesn't surprise me. The PS3 is still a more powerful machine than the Vita.

lol buy both like me. I'll play all those Blizt ball and stuff with my Vita and I'm commute between work and home lol

Forgot that this was coming out soon. Pretty sad considering I have it pre-ordered. D:

Pre-ordered during the Gamescom sale at Best Buy, so it was only $29.99. Pretty sweet deal for two RPGs.

#40 Edited by DocSanchez (1634 posts) -

@ni6htmare01: I'll be vita'ing it. That way I can play it wherever I am. Loved the game.

they said depending on the success of this release they was hoping they can work on a FF12 HD remaster for the Vita/ps3.

Picking this up on the Vita. It's been a long time since I played FFX.

#46 Posted by noodlevixen (480 posts) -

Actually never played these two. I'll pick it up when I get a vita.

Its weird I keep hearing bad stuff about them but I have had two successful packages from them.

#49 Posted by DivineSword (15759 posts) -

@finalfantasy94: Consider yourself lucky then. I actually got an email from them saying the FFX HD CE was on backorder this morning to find out that they made a mistake with those email. Finger cross on this one.
