If this sells well then maybe we'll see other ports.

This is Square-Enix milking its franchise, and you, for all it's worth.

Why would they be saying that onscreen controls don't work if they've played a good game with onscreen controls?

Could I afford it? Yes. My concept of affording something lies more in whether or not it is a good use for that money. Where I could spend $200 for a phone and another $100 a month to get all the use out of it is irrelevant. I can't afford an iPhone if I'm only going to use it for talk and text -- which is all I want out of a phone currently. "
Get an Ipod Touch then? "
....Also $200 lol. I have far better uses for $200. Like sit on it. "
You misunderstand me.  My point was questioning why one of the things that would make you want an iPhone is, of all things, another port of Final fucking Fantasy, which not only isn't that great, but you can play it on five million other systems that you probably own. "
Ah yes, that makes much more sense. Internet beats me again at deciphering sentences.

I seriously considered purchasing the PSP version of FF1, and after arguing with myself, I decided that since I argued too much, i mustn't have needed a purchase. The game holds such a strong meaning for me that the Virtual Console version also held great interest.
 
...and now the Ipod Touch gets its own available copy. I feel like Tommy Lee Jones from Men in Black when he comments, "Now I'll have to buy the Beatles White Album again..."

This is exactly what I wanted. Now I want to know why exactly they haven't put FF1&2 up on PSN for PSP or the PSX classic renditions.

So how many of you folks going "ONSCREEN CONTROLS DONT WORK" have actually played a good game with onscreen controls?

Posted by juanvaldes

I'd be all over this if I didn't already own them on the GBA cart.

Well it is a gaming platform, and it has loads of games, including many classics and many unique clever games.  It's just one more platform to release a game.  For example, I'm playing Plants Vs. Zombies on it, and it is an incredibly addicting game.  I have two full pages of games on there that I paid for, and all of them are quality games.  You don't buy it to play a few games off the app store, you buy it as a portable media device.  It's extremely portable and convenient; when I'm out there's no reason why I shouldn't carry it with me.

Nos-Con... "Square Enix Presents"!.. Give me a break... although I would buy it if I had an iPhone.

Posted by deyanne

i have to say this is the first time i see a "real" game ported to the iphone/pod that looks like it might work. curious to see more about this. only downside is these aren't exactly games you just play in quick 15-20min sessions which is what the iphone is best suited for

Posted by lilarchie232

I wonder how the controls will turn out, if they aren't screwed up and if it comes out relatively cheap, I'd consider getting it

It's called an iPod Touch and it's $100 cheaper. I wouldn't say it's great for any type of game or that it's a legitimate gaming platform, but you could easily buy one just to play games and be satisfied if you know the limitations of the system. "
I keep forgetting about the iPod Touch. I guess someone could justify a purchase if they only wanted to use it for games, but what I'm saying is; When people think of the iPhone/iPod Touch, they probably don't think of games, and I'm sure Apple doesn't either.

I'm going to guess there are a lot of people out there who own iphones and not psps. Those people might want to play Final Fantasy. Now they can.
 
There you go.

Cool...seems like a turn-based RPG should work fine on iPhone. It'd be nice if they stuck in some touch-and-drag inventory management, but who knows?

Posted by BunkerBuster

 Yep, the nostalgia has got me. Day one purchase confirmed.

What do you know. I have this, on my PSP, right now... Yay for more ports!

Edited by Burns098356GX

I'd maybe get one if they were like 5 dollars, or less. Considering I know I can these 20 year old games off the net for free.

Lets all rush out to a game released a bajillion times already!


Fucking stupid.

Touch-based controls for a turn-based rpg might actually work well, though map movement will still be a hassle...

Posted by Daniel_Newton

This seems pretty pointless unless you have never played any of the other releases of the games and you don't have a PSP or a GBA. I imagine it's better with real buttons. I played some of the first one on the PSP, it was alright, got stuck and stopped playing it though.

Why do people still care about Final Fantasy 1 and 2?

Was this really needed after they were ported to both GBA and PSP already?

@DRE7777: 
Well I saw a tap controller onscreen, and in my book any iphone game that has to rely on that is not.... wonderful. But this is Final Fantasy, so I'll cut it some slack.
