    Anyone else tried this yet? got it a few days ago its actually pretty good! Identical to the DS version they made a couple of years back but with a lot more polish, sharper textures etc and the FMV's have had a big clean up as well from the DS version.

    Very impressed, as wasnt expecting anything of note to come out for the PSP again

    Apparently the psp version isn't doing well in terms of sales in japan, I'm not entirely sure if it will fare better here.
    I really am considering getting this, despite buying it on the ds already just to try out the slight improvements they've made, like the auto battle system and the improved graphics.
    Thank god they got rid of that stupid mail system in the ds version too, it made doing the side missions just about impossible.

    They have revamped the soundtrack a bit as well. Either that or it just sounds cleaner on the PSP as opposed to it being somewhat muddy on the DS.

    Your probably right about the fact it wont sell well, i was just surprised games were still being released for PSP. I thought it was pretty much a dead format by now

    not entirely; a few games are still lined up for it this year and next, funny since developers are pretty much ignoring the vita in the process...

    Well i suppose if they can develop something for the PSP at the fraction of the cost of a VITA title but still hit the vita audience with a PSN download of a PSP game then i guess it makes sense to keep releasing them

    Honestly I don't see the necessity of this release, given that both the DS and Android userbase outnumber the PSP's greatly. Aside from the free money, anyways.

    The necessity for this release is because it was on DS, which is not a sony product, and neither is Android. Thats a bit like saying that something like Mass Effect isnt needed on Wii U because its already available on PS3 and Xbox.

    Its obviously not cost them a lot development wise but its hitting PSP, VITA and PS3 users for one release so i can imagine that the sales would still be enough to recoup what they put into it. (Edit - isnt the release something to do with a FF 25 year anniversary? Sure i read it somewhere)

    I really enjoyed it. I didn't want to buy a DS just for one game, so I was pretty excited when it was released.
