    Final Fantasy X Getting an HD Remake

    There have been a lot of rumors and speculation leading up to the Tokyo Game Show, but no one saw this one coming. The time has come to once again walk down the road to Zanarkand.

    Far easier to port and update teh PS2 then it is to completely redo FFVII, just saying.

    I'd prefer the opportunity to give XII another chance, but I imagine that'd likely happen later so I'm happy enough with this. I didn't get into RPGs early enough to really care about VII myself.

    Do hope they tweak the blitzball a bit though so it's actually fun to play.

    IMO FFX is showing its age more than FFVII - so I'm well happy with this!

    It'll probably just be an enhanced port or whatever.

    I thought Valve were some of the biggest trolls out there. Well played Square-Enix. Well played.

    That's my thinking too. Probably nothing more than a quick resolution bump like they're doing with Sly, MGS, GoW, etc.
    So long & thanks for all the fish!

    Still, this did make me giggle a bit... SE: "We'll remake/enhance rerelease any Final Fantasy game. Unless it came out on the PS1."

    SE makes me happy. What better game is there for a portable system than Final Fantasy X?

    Meh, the game looked okay for PS2 but the textures are pretty bland. Methinks HD is only going to accentuate the flaws.

    I don't think it'd be hard to redo the textures. It'd be difficult to redo the 3D models; I don't think they will go that far.

    After playing it on PCSX2 I can say that some parts of it look absolutely amazing in HD, while other parts of it look really rough. Moreover, the game uses a lot of 2D elements which look awful, such as inside the Besaid huts, and the Kilika horizon. FFXII is a much better candidate for a straight-up HD port (though I'm still happy that SE decided upon FFX, since I like the game much more).

    If it turns out to be a straight-up HD port rather than the 'remake' that SE have advertised it as - then it should still look fairly stunning on the small screen of the Vita.

    Re-texturing a game with higher resolutions makes it look a lot snappier. OoT 3D looks really good on the 3DS and I don't think they did much to improve the polygon count for that game.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they've got XII HD in the works as well. There was also some talk of Kingdom Hearts getting the HD treatment in time for the 10th anniversary of the first game.

    If it turns out to be a straight-up HD port rather than the 'remake' that SE have advertised it as - then it should still look fairly stunning on the small screen of the Vita.
    Weren't they classifying the Chrono Trigger DS version as a "remake"?

    -Yeah, I tend to be a little dubious about any of SE's grand promises.

    -A FFXII HD port will turn out great; I've been playing that game @1080p on PCSX2, and it requires absolutely no additional work (with the exception of CG cutscenes) - it looks better than FFXIII!

    Sadly, the ship has probably set sail. I don't think they will be closing down FFXI in the near, near future, but, once FFXIV is finally fixed and drawing in a crowd, FFXI's retirement will be close at hand. I just hope someday down the road they re-visist FFXI in some form (free-to-play retro MMO, a remade offline package, or something) to provide the next generation to experience it (i.e. ten years or so from now).

    On the bright side, maybe they'll use the International version as the base.

    I'd really only want a FFXII remake if they fleshed out the second half of the game. The game certainly could use the graphical update, but man. I'd be sad if they just tweaked some graphics and left. At least X stands well as-is.

    Has an MMORPG ever been converted into a single-player RPG after it's online run?

    Having done the same thing (PCSX2 @1080p) to finish my recent FFXII run, I can't really agree with that. XII would require quite a bit of work to see a proper PS3 quality port.

    EDIT: Don't get me wrong, the emulation is a definite improvement to FFXII's original level of quality, but as a baseline, I'd suggest they would probably want to review the main character models (Hero and villains alike) and review some of the dungeons and outdoor areas. "Quite a bit" is probably an overstatement, but going over maps with touching-up in mind probably takes time more than anything else.

    And while they're at it, maybe they can remake the dungeons in the last third of the game to be less bang-head-on-wall annoying.

    Aren't they currently doing this with Ragnarok Online on the PSP?

    Also, FFVII fans are always irate, a remake will just make them even more irate because they'll spend an entire decade arguing over what should be fixed (The localization errors) and what should be left alone in the name of nostalgia (The Death Penalty glitch, should it be left in for old times sake?)

    Exactly

    Besides, people seem to forget that FFX was extremely popular as well.
