    FF VII through X-2 - Estimated costs.

    All right - I'm looking at saving up for the PS edition games of Final Fantasy. I know I'll be able to pick up quite a few of them used, but the question is the quality of the games. So, the question is - Do you know of any good sources for the used titles?

    VII
    VIII
    IX
    X
    X-2

    And then there is another issue - The family PS1 died a long time ago (probably too much Need4Speed ...), so I'll need the system to go with the games, too. Should I buy a refurbished PS2, or splurge for a PS3?

    Re: FF VII through X-2 - Estimated costs.

    If you are wanting to play X and X-2, then it's no good getting a PS3. PS3s do not play PS2 games. However, you will be able to download VII, VIII and IX through the Playstation Store if you got one.

    Here in the UK, PS2s are dirt cheap. You can find one second hand for about 30-40.

    Watch out for the prices on VII, VIII and IX. They can be very expensive. When I had to buy a new copy of VIII and IX, they came to 40 for the two, which is pretty cheap to today's prices. VII can be even more expensive, you just have to know where to look. eBay perhaps is the best place.

    FFX and X-2 are cheap. I just found a copy of each for 5 all together.

    You are perhaps looking at about 100+ for the lot (or whatever that is in dollars, wherever it is you live).

    Hope I helped

    Re: FF VII through X-2 - Estimated costs.

    Hmm ... So cross the PS3 off of my list. At least the PS2 is cheaper. (Less to save when I can get a job.) From what I've seen, the refurbished PS2s are roughly $60ish.

    Ouch ... And considering they stopped making those games ... I might be hard pressed to find an affordable copy, much less one in good condition. Sounds like VII-IX will have me bargain hunting. But, maybe I'll get lucky with X and X-2. The online Gamestop store carries X for about $9 and X-2 for $4, so I could get out easy with those ...

    So it looks like I'm looking at probably ... $130, on average? That's going to be expensive. (Not to mention getting PS2 memory cards and controllers, since I doubt refurbished ones come with one.) Well, I'd better get saving. >_>

    Re: FF VII through X-2 - Estimated costs.

    Actually PS3s can play PS2 games, you just need to find a backwards compatible one, and since those aren't made anymore, they're going to be a bit hard to find and expensive when you do find.

    I recommend buying a PS2 slim. They're pretty cheap. And FF7 is like, 34$ used on amazon right now. PS2 slim is 100$ or 50$ used, FF8 is 13$ on sale right now, and FF9 is 12.10$ on sale right now.

    you can find cheaper versions of any game on ebay but amazon always has better quality there is an auction right now with ff7 for less then 10 bucks many ff8 auctions for less the 20 and many ff9 auctions for less then 20 memory cards arent that expensive you can buy all of that stuff at walmart for pretty cheap since people now a days go just for ps3 stuff
