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

PAL vs NTSC. Simple.

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.

Re: Is Final fantasy VIII (8) and IX (9) on the Australian/New Zealand Store

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 :smileyhappy:

@reilz81

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... :smileysad:
