    Default 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.

    I feel like that's a bit pricey since I already own it on ps1. Was the pc port much of an improvement with the enhanced graphics and such?

    This is all good and well, but what about FFVIII?

    With VII and IX now on PS4 with trophies, VIII needs to be there too, to finish off the PS1 trilogy - odd that they went for IX before VIII. I hope this doesn't mean they're skipping VIII...
    Main series ranking (of those I've beaten so far):
    1 - VII, 2 - VIII, 3 - IX, 4 - XII, 5 - IV, 6 - V, 7 - X, 8 - XV, 9 - III, 10 - VI, 11 - XIII, 12 - I

    Pretty excited about this, but $25AU on special? Damn, Square. Milking that cow.

    But yes! We need VIII!

    Probably cause IX and VII are the better PS1 FF's and no one cares about VIII

    i'm being harsh hehe but really, there's more cult favoritism to IX and VII than VIII, so they know those will sell easily.

    viii is great stfu

    Though I agree IX is the best PS1 FF, VIII seriously deserves more love and it's a crying shame it';s being ignored

    While you're right that VII and IX are more popular than VIII, VIII still has many, many fans, and would still be a guaranteed money-maker. Square should release it. I really hope it's coming and that they haven't skipped it.

    VIII is my second favourite of the series btw, after VII.

    I might pick this one up just to get a friend to play it/enjoy the multiplayer feature occasionally.

    I doubt they'll skip VIII. Agree with Jarvio - they'll still make tons of money from it. Probably just doing them in order of favourites or something.

    Outside of here, I honestly don't see too many actually asking for a VIII remaster. And I do waaaay too much internet browsing.

    Like I know it's a big favorite for everyone here and I know it's unfair that your favorite hasn't got the re-release yet. It's just probably not as much of a priority as the other games based on vocal fan wants. It'll probably happen cause it's like the only one missing now. It's just not as big of a priority.

    To be fair, I replayed it recently on the VIta. It's aged very well, tbh. Much better than VII thanks to its graphics and very competent translation. So it's not like it desperately needs a remake

    I also replayed it recently. For remake/remaster purposes, it doesn't need anything, but neither did IX, and the port of VII. But it's cool that you can now get trophies on VII and IX, and I'd love for VIII to get that same treatment.

    I could understand them doing just VII because it's hugely popular, but now that they've done IX, my mind won't feel comfortable until they do VIII too. And my OCD is bothering me that IX got this treatment before VIII did lol.

    The thing is, the version of VII ported to PS4 was the PC port released way back. FFVIII had a similar port around the same time, so I guess it's only a matter of time until it goes to PS4. The only reason IX got an update was that it never got a PC release, so they upscaled all the graphics for that. VII didn't get the same treatment.
