This is great news

I have it on Steam and PS1 already but I can always be persuaded to buy more FFIX

Also IX before VIII just seems a little odd.

The cheats have made VII so much fun to return to and play again. I hope they include the same thing for this version of IX.
 

ULTROS!

People seem to like me because I am polite and I am rarely late. I like to eat ice cream and I really enjoy a nice pair of slacks.

I hope there's no trophy for getting the Excalibur II.

I just need VIII for the PS4 now and then I'll be able to own all mainline FF games after having started getting into the series a few months ago.

I need to get around to playing this again, i got to the final boss when i was in middle school, but he kept kicking my ass. I was probably under leveled.

All is right in the world.

The day it's released, it's a drop everything and play moment for me. Gotta have this platinum in my library.

This game is begging for a fast forward feature. Replaying it last year, the battle speed was annoying at times.
As a port of the PC/Mobile versions it will indeed have a fast forward feature. Unfortunately the port is supposedly not very good, possibly because it was ported into Unity3D for some bizarre reason. Will still probably play it, since I've been wanted to replay it recently. I have it on PS3/Vita but the gameplay speed of the PAL in particular is terrible.

There has never been a Final Fantasy more needing of the 4x Speed button. I'll finally be able to beat it if this comes out.

I wonder what horrors await in the PS4 version, over and above what they did with the backgrounds and UI in previous FF ports.

Audio glitches are always a good bet.

Seriously, don’t blind-buy Square-Enix’s FF ports through nostalgic hype.

Fuck YEAH!~!!!!

I also want FFVIII, but this will do for now. As other have said, Melodies of Life Piano Collection theme. I could listen to that all day.

Excellent. I've been trying to get platinum trophies for all the FF games that have them so the more the merrier.
Bought VIII and IX for Vita but held off playing them in case they brought out trophy versions. Just wish VIII was coming first.

Sorry if this has been confirmed, I did a quick look.

Does the PC version fix the horrid battle loading times? I would like to actually finish this game, but can't if the battle loading times are as they are on the PSX version.

Second best Final Fantasy getting a PS4 release after the best Final Fantasy getting a PS4 release two mo the ago as well? Great time to own a PS4.
But FFVI isn't on PS4.

Seriously though XII, IX are in my top three (VI is no.1). Can't wait to play IX again with a fast forward feature too. Hopefully they have improved the port as the mobile version was not great. Perfectly serviceable but a low effort job all round. This is good timing as well as I just finished up with XII the other day. Just have to go back for some random trophies to get my Platinum trophy.

Why does FFVII on PS4 have Boost Modes, but not on Steam, and FFX HD on Steam, but not on PS4!? Why can't they be consistent, ugh.

Order of porting I guess.

FFX/X-2 HD came out on PC last, and has the most features. FFVII PS4 came out on PS4 last, and has the most features.

I assume FFIX on PS4 will have the same or more features than PC/iOS versions.

Really happy to see FFIX reach a wider audience. It's a great game.

The comments about FFVIII in this thread just have me shaking my head though. It's got it's flaws but it's still an excellent game. You want to talk about a bad FF game, talk about Mystic Quest or FFII.

Ff8 is literaly a divisive game

You buy the game throw cd 3 and 4 in the trash, and be happy with the epic goat cd 1 and 2.

Perfection.

Hopefully this is like FF7 in that it's still the PS1 game but with fast-forward attached. If it's a port of the mobile/Steam version, I may pass.
FF7 forced you to use the blurry upscaled backgrounds and filtered UI though.

Why ? The mobile/Steam version has higher quality movies, sprites/icons and even 3D models.
The icons may be higher res but they’re artistically inferior.

Didn't like the PC version, UI is so out of place. I wish they made it like original but I know it's not going to happend. Rather play it on emulator.

Hope the trophies are different from the Steam version. Those are pretty awful. 2nd worst FF trophy list after XIV. I'll still get it though regardless. I will have all of the FF platinums. Currently have 10 out of 12.
