IGN is an advertisement site, not a review site.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

FFXII IZJS HD would have been the better choice.

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

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.

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).

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

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.

@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.
