I've been looking at finishing up some of the older Final Fantasies I started, but never actually finished (4-6). While I do own all of the old games on the GBA, I would have to play them on my DS, which, in addition to not having some buttons on that old thing work, would require me to use (and find) cartridges. I would much prefer having a digital version that I could switch between playing on my PSP and my PS3. Pretty much all of the Final Fantasies are available on PSN, but considering their status as PSone "classics", I assume they use the older versions that appeared on the PSone, from before they were retranslated for the GBA. Are these versions and translations decent? While I haven't heard that many bad things about the FF6 translation, I have heard some about the FF5 one (I.E., protagonist's name being Butz). How much of a difference does the new translation make? Is the Engrish used in older versions charming, or annoying? Should I just suck it up and dig out my DS?
How's the PSN Version?
I know FFVI on PSN is the anthology version (that came with V). If I remember correctly there was some slowdown with that version and the translation won't be as updated as the GBA version.
Game is still great regardless though I'd say get it on PSN it's readily available and you won't have to find a cart.
I couldn't deal with it, the snes version being the last one I played before this, those load times made me impatient, which is crazy because they aren't THAT long but when you add that shit up(all dose battles), it's fucking looooooong. I feel like it's close to uninstalled Lost Odyssey(probably not even close because I installed the shit outta LO after a few battles).
