Final Fantasy V coming to PSN.

Don't know if there's been a thread of this already. The news is a couple days old, but yeah, FF V is coming to PSN. No release date has been announced yet.

Can't say I'm super interested in it. I haven't played it, but what I've heard of it, it's apparently not very good. At least from narrative side. I'll probably still play it, cause it's a FF game, and I like them. If there are some FF V fans here, I'd like to hear your thoughts on it, since I'm fairly unfamiliar with the game.

Bump, if anyone's interested.

Cool, I guess. I'm sure anyone who's really interested in FFV has already played it on one of the other four platforms they released it on.

I'd be more interested in 6 because Kefka is one smooth mother fucker.

Pass.  V was respectfully known as the worser ones.

YEAH! This can only mean that FFVI is next on line, make it happen Square!

@Verb4tim: What this now means is that every Final Fantasy game will be on a Sony platform, and the only platform for this to happen on.

I appreciate more PS one Classics, but I wish more publishers committed to putting games up, and not just Square Enix. Lately all I'm seeing is them.

So another rererereererererereerelease then?

Square Enix: we forgot long ago how to actually make good new games...

Final Fantasy V is one of the worst games in the series.  That's one rerelease I won't buy.

Final Fantasy V is actually really good, much better than the first three or any of them since IX.

However the PSOne version is horrible, it had a very bad translation and suffers from bad loading times..

From the 1200 yen release of it on PSN in Japan, I imagine we'll see a $9.99 price tag which seems far too steep a price for V alone when Anthology contained both V and VI and cost the same amount as, say, Final Fantasy Tactics (which also happens to be on PSN for that price).  But maybe it'll be $4.99... at which point I might consider it. I dunno... the job system is great and the game is enjoyable, but I can't say I've been itching to play it again. I wonder if the atrocious load times of FF Chronicles/ Anthologies will be fixed... Gods, those load times were so terrible.

Oh, also -- Chrono Cross is getting released on PSN in Japan, so chances are we'll see it here in the future, for anyone who cares. Personally, I'd rather play Chrono Cross again rather than FFV, but that's just me.
