No, neither of these are available at the moment. FF VII (7) has been on the store for a while now, and many people are waiting on FFVIII (8) as it is aparently meant to release soon.

Hopefully 8 & 9 arn't too far off. I know in the hong kong store they alreaddy have FF1, 2, 7, and 8, so hopefully Australia/New Zealand isn't too far off getting them.

FF 8 will NEVER be posted on the PSN store in PAL land unless Sony updates the PS3 back compatability. FF8 doesnt work on ANY PAL PS3 system since it uses a special loading techniqe that Sony would have to write special BC code for. It wont happn.

If you check the EU Playstation Blog, in the latest store update Mike said that FF8 is currently in tesing and should be released *soon*.... I'm hoping it will be on the store by the end of the year.

Well, they just received Final Fantasy VIII in America, so the PAL region can expect to have it within the next, ohh, 2-3 years. Unless you happen to be immortal, I wouldn't expect IX will be released in your lifetime, so don't bother waiting.

Its been confirmed for a PAL release in January 2010 on the European Blog. Not too long to wait.

I don't get how VIII can be released in the states, yet it needs further testing in europe.

Well, it is considering it's a PS1 game, and not a PS3 game. PS1 games haven't changed and still use the PAL format. Needs to work with every supported european language too.

I've heard so many people say ff8 cannot run on the ps3 etc etc, yet i doubt they have tried it themselves with a b/c ps3, as mine runs it fine, so unless my ps3 is different to all the other b/c ps3's out there...

 

and as stated before, its just a matter of ntsc vs. pal, i know i would rather wait a few months or even a year for an awesome glitch free game over getting it early and having it freeze or glitch. patience is better than rushing guys :)

Yeah, I have that problem too, apparently it's got something to do with a different loading software they used for VIII and IX, which isn't supported on the PS3. The way these games are loaded up on the store, I wouldn't be holding my breath for IX. Besides, I'll only end up having to buy it again. You'd be better off just using a PS1 or 2 to play your FFIX, even if there are no wireless controllers... :(
