    They used the same models from FFX-2 since it was only a test. But in the 3rd scan, they end up changing the design. o.o

    The 3rd-5th screens looked tragic that kind of character model doesn't deserve to be put into Final Fantasy 0_o

    I think those are the stand-in models for more realistic looking ones later. See the first two images and you'll know what I mean.

    How many discs would this be, I'm wondering?

    Probably three. The PS2 used the same medium as the Xbox 360 (DVD9), and it should be similar in size. Maybe it could even be on two discs, as the PS2 wouldn't need HD videos.

    Probably a single dual layer, they probably wouldn't have been as wasteful with the disk space due to the restrictions (not to mention they wouldn't have needed as much space for high-poly models and high-res textures).


    Although if I'm remembering right, some of FFXII's sound quality was reduced due to space reasons.

    It's not as though they will release it, but it's interesting that they used a PS2 as a testing base

    the PS2 still does have good power and additionally it was sold the most, it pretty much was a base to how the consoles should progress in the future since it was kinda a big leap from PS1
