• Final Fantasy IX now available on PlayStation 4

    Today at Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show press conference it was announced that Final Fantasy IX would be available to download on PlayStation 4 today. Like last year's PC and mobile release, this is a digital port with enhanced graphics.

    On top of the polished look there's also trophy support, a PS4 theme background, 8 player icons, and optional "boosters" in the same vein as the Final Fantasy VII port. IX's boosters help you level faster and master weapons at a speedy rate. This is an optional bonus for people who have played the game before and would just like a leisurely nostalgic stroll through the story.

    If you're a trophy completionist, I hope you're a fan of the jump rope mini-game because that'll net you a Gold.

    Final Fantasy IX will be regularly priced as $20.99, but it has been marked down to $16.79 until September 26th.

      It did! And the PS4 version of FFVII is the Steam version too. And the Steam version of VII was just the PC port from way back. So XI didn't actually get the VII treatment - it got treated better!

      Actually it came out last year. 2016. This ps4 version is, of course, a pc port, with all the errors and bugs and possibly crashes of the pc version. Unfortunately in this scenario I, nor anyone else can fix it. While I admire its going back to its roots on PlayStation, not in this way. Leave it to them to ignore the bug reporting.
      Nothing worse than a game crashing on a console, I guess.

      Oh well, I got FFIX too many times, now it won't be a last, that ps4 version is sorry. replay value, lost.
