    Then wait until it gets discounted like the other FF titles on Steam or wait until it gets cracked. To be honest, though, you can make PS2 games look pretty darn good through PCSX2.

    Oh aye, Dragon Quest VIII at 1080p with all the bells and whistles on looks the dogs bollocks! FFXII doesn't look quite as good on it, but I begrudge paying that price ....will pick it up on sale eventually, I just think that initial pricepoint is a bit cheeky...

    It is rather steep, yeah. With all these remakes/remasters going on I would love to see the cost comparison between the original and the new version to see if the price point is valid. They'd have to spend, what, 5/6ths of what they originally spent on FFXII? Unless you were to consider the original cost in a you-pay-for-my-experience-and-training kind of way like with various professions.

    well, to fair there are consoles that come with SSDs nowadays, you can also put one of your own on both xbox (all of them) and playstation (PS3 and PS4) consoles and some games run at stable 60 FPS on consoles, hell, some run at 1080p 60 FPS

    It's $40 if you get it right around launch. I would've preferred $30, but $40 isn't prohibitively expensive as a launch price.

    All that's missing now is Final Fantasy 1 and 2 for PC, and we'd have all mainstream Final Fantasies.

    Awesome! Can't wait to play! I'd love to see some modern Final Fantasy games hit the Switch like this and XV. But for now, I guess PC will have to do. Pretty funny how Square Enix is slowly turning their PS exclusive games into non-exclusives.

    GODDAMNIT I JUST BOUGHT A NEW PS4 partly because of this exlusive. STOP RELEASING EXLUSIVES TO PC!!!!!!!!!!!

    But the only advantage I will now have is HDR over the pc version...?

    How will this new game plus differen from PS4?
    I read there is new game weak and strong in ps4?
    So im confused... is there new game plus? where you carry over your items and XP in PS4 or not? or only pc?

    Um... PCs can use HDR. Also, the game's been out for months and Square Enix has been porting their games like crazy on Steam/PC. If FFXV is getting a Windows release, it is just a matter of time for FFXII. And about the new game+:

    Yeah but not all versions support it. Like Tombraider PC doesnt have HDR but Console has.

    Yeah still doesnt make much sense with all these "different" new game modes. Now we have plus, minus , weak , strong..
    So my old question still stands. Is there in ps4 version carry over level + items you made?

    I don't know where you've read these "weak" and "strong" descriptions, but I'm 99% sure they're just a translation of ng+ and ng-.
    From that description it doesn't look like you can carry over your items.

    If you don't trust information from the Final Fantasy wiki then by all means, don't let me stop you from waiting.

    Key word is "came." Crappy versions at least a year later for 7 and 8, quite a while for a decent version of 7 and 8, and a PC version of 9 didn't come until 2 years ago. Considering how often games get ported to the PC nowadays (or even back when) generally when saying "exclusive" you're talking about when it was released. Final Fantasy was a Nintendo exclusive, then became a Sony exclusive, and now every mainline FF but 1 and 2 are on the PC.

    This is all I think of when I hear about this game.

    Is it any good? Thinking of trying it when it comes out on PC.
