    I don't have anything to play it on. I've been contemplating getting an Xbox or PS3 for years now, but then I'd feel obligated to replace my 27" CRT. Not sure I want to sink that much money at the moment.

    I've heard that 13 is to be the last of the final fantasy series but I don't know if there is any truth to it.

    I thought I bred an invisible Chocobo that can cross planar boundaries 10 years ago... that chicken-legged bastard just drank my last beer! That cowboy on the black one ain't got a chance...(nothing beats FFVII)! :tongueout:

    Too bad I sold all my GP to the ******pipe around the corner..

    I'll be getting it, but I'll be waiting to see whether it and its downloadable content ends up being a better package on the PS3 or 360. If it's better on the PS3, then I'll get the game when I get around to getting the console.

    Final Fantasy has been in 3D for over a decade now, by the way. :tongueout:

    At this point, the Final Fantasy franchise has been entirely passed from its original hands to a totally different team of very capable leads. It definitely had its faltering moments in the transition, but I look forward to seeing what they've done--although I really wouldn't mind if they'd call it something else. Hironobu Sakaguchi, the former Final Fantasy guy, went on to form Mistwalker, and has worked with several other leads from the old Final Fantasy games. Check out Lost Odyssey on the 360 for what is, essentially, another Final Fantasy game of the classic cut.

    I might check it out. The best IMO is VII for the original PS. There is talk about making VII for PS3, no official release yet though.

    Yes it was! I really hope Square Enix does a remake in HD! That would be soooo sweet! :cool:

    Not a chance! There are more on the way. It is Square's flagship series. It's their bread and butter. They won't stop making the FF series as long as it has a large fan base and sells. I will say that the series was much better when Hironobu Sakaguchi was leading the production.

    Then the series should be sued for false advertising, because each one after the first one means it is not really "final" fantasy.

    My roommate bought FFXIII, he's almost beat it. There's these new points, called CP. You need to earn CP and then spend it to upgrade your guy. Yes, according to FFXIII CP enhances your skills.

    No, not me. Within two weeks, every hacker in the universe will have ruined the gameplay for me. Then I'll just need to return it for a refund.

    I'm bugging for it! I've finally worn myself out on Metal Gear Solid 4 and MLB '09. Now if Grand Turismo 5 will come out before the PS4 is released I'll be a happy man! Now I just gotta figure out how to convince the wife I need an extra $60 for my allowance!

    It's not one that you play online, is a single player RPG.

    I have it for PS3 and the graphics are AMAZING! Also, another advantage for ps3 is that it's one disc, versus 3 for 360.

    It started w/the original on NES in America, Famicom in JP. The game was the studio's last shot. Therefore it was called final fantasy. Here's a cool thing that came w/FFXII collector's game.:
