No idea if it's heading our way in North America but for the time being, we can look and salivate…and wonder if we'd actually spend that much for a collection. Yeah, maybe.
The Final Fantasy Ultimate Box Collection was unveiled as part of the franchise's 25th anniversary celebration and despite one or two odd omissions, it's still a hardcore fan's dream.
And just to pique your curiosity even more, Square Enix has released a new promotional video to YouTube, which – although it's in Japanese – makes us remember the happy times, the time when not only everything about this series was almost unparalleled in the world of gaming, but also a time when just about anything Squaresoft touched turned to gold. Priced at 30,000 yen (European retailers had it at around $450, it seems), it's tough to swallow but oh…the memories…the memories might just make this worth it. It could be freakin' priceless.
But seriously, no FFX-2? Come on.
Just hearing that Final Fantasy Prelude theme really shouldn't make me so giddy. It's a lovely boxset I love how each disc has a art design by Amano. Sadly I just cannot afford it even if it did get a european release, Still I have each FF playable anyway so it's not major loss.
As I've stated before, I can't really call myself a die-hard fan, but I have really enjoyed the ones I've played before. This would be an amazing way to jump into the series. Hopefully I'll have some expendable cash if it sees a North American release.
I'm sure I speak for a lot of us for this but is there a digtal version of this timeless collection? It has like 20 download codes for each of the games and soundtrack listed on a fancy white piece of cardboard which includes links to a website that shows all of of the collection's exquisite artwork via pdf and development videos via streaming video? =p

That iconic music will always remind me of what was once the greatest video game franchise of all time. RIP Final Fantasy, we had some good times.
I'd buy it. and if it doesn't release here i'll import it.
so what console is it for? are these the originals or are some of them ports to make it so all the games work on one console?
They are the Playstation versions.
You know what's sad? Is i was hyped until i saw the Xlll. I still sweat when i think about the game. It gave me head problems. Like mind in head stuff… Oh god its happanening again!!!

I really shouldn't spend that much money… please don't tempt me, Squeenex.
