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.

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..."

I really hope you're not being serious. "
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.

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

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

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

Yes that's more or less my point, good job.

"Hey lets release those two games we have released on everything else again on iPhone, good thing we waited till the App Store buzz died down. People love to buy those games again, especially the second one, the broken one. We can't really be bothered coming up with a new 2D Final Fantasy for this device. Lets badly composite our stock B-Roll footage onto a terrible image of the iPhone and be done with it."
 I can't really blame them since this has worked so many times in the past, I'm just amazed when it is I & II again. I mean if a year goes by when they don't re-release those two specific games again they might go under.

Then you haven't really looked. The iPhone has had plenty of "real" games on it for quite awhile now.
 
Oh I get it though, it's popular to bash on the iPhone because of control scheme.

I wasn't aware that a "real" game had to be played with tactile buttons. . .
 
There are tons of games with imaginative game play that uses the touch screen to it's fullest.

No, if they just port a regular game to the iPhone and just slap touch buttons on the screen in order to play it, then it's a piece of shit.

Don't see much point to this aside from nostalgia and seeing as i've never played the first 2 Final Fantasies i'll give this a pass.

Showed FF1 a lot.  Even the first game scene with Garland was from 1.  It showed the scene in the dwarf cave with the TNT.  It showed the crossing of the bridge which leads to the famous story scene with the FF epilogue/theme music (which is playing).

Looks... like Final Fantasy, I guess. I won't be buying these, but this video does fill me with a nice, nostalgic feeling.

I own these two for three systems already.  Sorry Square but I have to say no to four.  You've taken enough of my money on these two games already.

Unless you have virtual buttons on screen, and then it will be like any other game. And if you have an iPhone, getting the bus everyday maybe, you're saying you wouldn't play this game? (if we're saying that you are a person that likes Final Fantasy).

Controls are a really big issue on the iphone, i got GTA: CTW and it just doesnt feel right. final fantasy is awesome, but they should stick with the main consoles..

I don't see why the controls would be a problem it's Final Fantasy I & II not exactly the most complicated RPGs out there today. The virtual D-pad looks very big and shouldn't cause any movement issues, I believe everything else is handle via touching the screen though so the battles should control very similar to how they have in DS Final Fantasy remakes.
 
My only issue with this is, they shouldn't charge any more than $2.99 each and $4.99 if they end up putting them together. These two games have been ported to literally every handheld device with a screen from the GBA to the WonderSwan.  That being said, with the iPhone being a device I have on me wherever I go. I am down to get these for the controls, I have the NES verisons of the games on my iPhone now, but they are not fun to play due to the awful emulator controls.
