    You can always pirate Soul Silver so I'd pick Final Fantasy XIII.

    Unless you're a total Pokemon addict. Then you should pick SoulSilver. [​IMG]

    Depends what you want.

    FFXIII - First HD game in a series that has been going downhill since the end of the PS1 days, possible improvements to combat system etc. and a huge arcing storyline that will simultaneously awesome AND confusing as all hell

    SOulSilver - Nostalgic remake of a game from the hayday on Pokemon (y'know when the Pokemon seemed cool) with modern extras (Wi-fi etc.)

    man, why do they have to come out on the same month. [​IMG]
    Do they sell the PokeWalker alone?

    Yeah, I'd say FF13. [​IMG]

    You probably already played 'Soul Silver' 10 years ago. [​IMG]

    No offense but seriously? Buy a remake of an old game which you can pirate, or buy a brand new game for the ps3? :S Anyway, I'd go for FFXIII, the pokewalker's only a souped pedometer anyway.

    I'd say FFXIII. I didn't think SoulSilver was that great of a remake anyway lol

    What makes you say that? I have a feeling that Pokewalkers will become very short in supply due to all the pirates wanting to buy one, but not many people would buy the game and choose to sell their Pokewalker.

    Then I will laugh after the pirates buy them and see that it won't connect to there R4 because of the IR sensor.

    Whoops. How stupid of me, I forgot that the Pokewalker only works with retail carts.
    But still, why would you buy the game and sell the Pokewalker?

    On topic: Get FF13. You can always pirate Pokemon, then buy the real game once you have enough money and transfer your save.

    To support game companies? Although I have absolutely no morals and would pirate it regardless.

    I could go on and on about how Final Fantasy is overrated and outdated and blah blah blah, but it's just personal opinion. Personally, I'd buy/pirate SoulSilver and forget FFXIII and get a different game instead. I don't know your PS3 library, but odds are there's some games out there worth your time that you don't have yet.

    I had the same problem, but if you haven't pre-ordered either, just get Soul Silver first. XBOX and PS3 games are crazy expensive at release, and chances are a person who has not pre-ordered a game like FF13 will not find one in stores for a while. Of course, that's what happens where I live. Besides, Soul Silver is 35 dollars at release, and I would just wait for FF13's price to drop. You can wait for a FF game, right?

    Like Pokemon, stores probably receive a huge amount of final fantasy games.

    As for me, I preordered FFXIII and I will pirate both pokemon games, since obviously, the pokewalker is totally useless, since it doesn't offer any pokemons or stuff you can't get elsewhere.

    But first, this week, I will get my copy of White Knight Chronicles on PS3, then next week is Star Ocean the Last Hope International.

    I hope that they will include something worthwhile in the Pokewalker... I pre-ordered Pokemon Soulsilver, by the way. Call me a kid, but Johto was my favorite region in Pokemon. Besides, I can wait a month or two to buy a copy of FF13. Or... I could splurge my money and buy both...

    Im getting Pokemon soul silver and forgetting XIII,

    And also, the pokewalker does get you special things, such as LEGIT pikachus with surf and fly and other special moves.
    I fully am BUYING a Soul Silver Game and pokewalker.
