• X + X-2 HD bundled for PS3

    Hello readers! Perhaps by this point you were already pretty geared up for the HD release of Final Fantasy X? Now there's even more swirling in the rumor mill to get excited about.

    Rumors have been churning that Final Fantasy X-2 will be included in the same disk as the FFX HD title. This rumor has seemingly been confirmed by a screenshot of Jump Magazine. This exciting news states that the game will also be available on the Vita, on a different cartridge.

    Sounds like we haven't heard the end from YRP

    Although there is still no official release date for this game, it is good to hear information continue to trickle out after months of silence. This is the first mention of the X-2 being included in the remake! Could this last bit of information be the precursor to an official announcement on the game? Time will tell! Until then discuss if this affects your view on purchasing the FFX HD bundle on our forums!

      It's true, and I'm very excited about it.

      Oh man, if they use the International Version of both games for this release, that would be AWESOME.

      I knew we should have waited a while before getting the PS3! xD

      Maybe I'll actually manage to finish FFX-2.

      Two of my top 10 favorite games of all time. And if they're the international versions...wow. This is the second-best thing Squeenix could pull off (we all know #1).

      I'm starting to wonder if this is the game they "didn't announce" at the PS4 Event.

      Why would it be?

      SE, just take my money already. While you are at it, take some for KH1.5HD.

      There were some questions earlier if FF X-2 was HD or not. Weekly Shounen Jump confirms that it is HD:

      I hope so, but it seems that even 'regular' PS3 releases tend to be 720p -- The Uncharted Series isn't 1080p, which never made any sense to me. Correct me if I'm wrong.

      Although, the only game I own in 1080p is Metal Gear Solid 4. (I don't think Rising: Revengeance is 1080p).

      MGS4 is not 1920x1080, it's not even "1080p". It is 1024x768 scaled to 1280x720.

      In either case, the game not being a "regular" PS3 game makes it 1080p more likely, not less. PS2 games have lower texture resolutions, fewer polygons and fewer "special effects", making the games easier to run at a higher resolution than "real" PS3 games.

      Graphical resolution is normally a technical limitation, not a budget limitation.

      It looks like Square Enix is finally realizing that people in NA want to play the extra content in the international/final mix/last mission/ whatever they call it releases.
