I do not like the DS version, but I adore the Complete Collection version.

I would love a chance to play this on PS3. Final Fantasy for me, is all about the big screen experience, even for the older games. So that gorgeous PSP version for download on PS3 would be right up my street.

While I didn't dislike the DS version, I think the PSP version as a part of The Complete Collection -- is the definitive version.

I enjoyed the DS version plenty, but I'd say the Complete Collection is definitely my favorite, including The After Years and a brief Interlude to link the two.


However, I disagree with it all being a big screen experience, I personally prefer I-VI portable, and at times VII-IX I'd rather play on my PSP.


I'm even getting both copies of X HD (PS3 and Vita) for when I feel like playing on the go.

I don't disagree that they should be on both, sometimes a console can be inconvenient. But I'd love to play the Complete Collection version on a big screen. i really think it would be an amazing experience.





I played VI on big screen via Virtual Console and was surprised at the difference it makes. FFs are cinematic experiences so thats always how I try to enjoy them, albeit not the only way the games can be enjoyed.

And the CC was designed for a portable, it certainly wouldn't look or scale right, but at the very least you can get FFII on the VC and buy TAY off WiiWare.


Agree to disagree I guess, I-VI are definitely better to me on a portable, I'm thinking we'll see 3DS remakes of V and VI eventually.

It has been for a while, should trademark it.


Anyways, when I'm not on a console (Xenoblade or Graces f or XIII-2) I am currently playing FFIV Complete Collection, attempting to farm a Lilith's Rod, and possibly Cockatrice.

The GBA one.


I haven't played the PSP version, but it would probably be my favourite if I did.

I've played through the PlayStation version that came with Chrono Trigger and the DS version. It's a tough call between them, but I'd chose the DS version.


On the other hand, I'd still like to get a hold of the PSP Complete Collection since I've wanted to play The After Years for the longest time.

I have a question about the After Years part of the PSP CC version - do you get the whole game? I bought it on the Wii last year and was extremely disappointed, you only got the first scenario with something like 11 more to get as DLC. I've been wanting to get the CC version, but don't want to run in to the same problem

Complete Collection should have the full slate of The After. If it didn't, it wouldn't be "complete"!

Yeah The After Years on PSP has everything.





I remember being disappointed because I literally just finished After Years when it was annouced and all the DLC cost me like £50 together.

I want to say the CC, but honestly I was really pleased with the DS version. I don't really care one way or the other about 3D graphics, but I found the gameplay really refreshingly fun. I liked that it was challenging too and expanded a little bit upon the story.

I'm mixed anout the Augments system in the DS version as compared to being able to re-unite with the old party members in other versions of the game, though. I think that's the only place where I'd fault it if anything, but I haven't even finished it. The last dungeon is tough.

Hey all, apologies for putting a phoenix down on this thread but I just got FFIV:CC for my PSP and was wondering: does the order in which I play the stories have any effect on the other stories? Like, will playing the Interlude first make the recurring characters weaker? Or are stats reset for each game regardless of completion order?

I bought FFIV three time. FF Chronicles for PS1, FFIV for the DS, and the finally the Complete Collection on PSP.


I only managed to beat it in the PSP game, so that kind of puts it in the #1 spot for me.


Though I did enjoy playing the DS version. I don't know why people were miffed with the "chibi" graphics; the details I saw in the designs were pretty nice. Plus I love being able to listen to the awesome VA work. I've head crummy English VAs in my 10+ years of gaming, but S-E has been keep a decent quality for the English VA the last few years, including the DS remake ^^

I enjoy the PSP version. If anything, for it all being wrapped within a nice, little package.

The PSP version has it all... But playing it on a GBA was pretty sweet too.

The PSP version was definitely my favorite it was a trip watching all those graphically "enchanced" attacks come from 8 bit characters.

We can group them into three main versions:


The original version: SNES, Virtual Console (Wii), PS1, WonderSwan Color (Japan only), GBA


The 3D remake: Nintendo DS, iOS, Android


The 2D remake (uses new sprites, bundled with the game's sequel The After Years): PSP





For the exact differences between every release:

When will we be able to play the psp version or even the ps1 version on the ps3? I keep looking and the only one available is for psp. Why don't they put one on PSN for the ps3??

I'm not sure why it's not available on the PSN for PS3, but there's a way to play it.


You can buy the PS1 discs, they will work on all models of PS3 (American), cheap: amzn.com/B00005LOXE (http://amzn.com/B00005LOXE)


If you have a European PS3, you can try to get a used copy of Final Fantasy Anthology PAL: www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B000065VUV (http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B000065VUV)

That's correct for PS2 discs.


But for PS1 discs, they work on every type of PS3 out there as long as they are from the same region. All PS3 models are backwards compatible with PS1 discs.

Now that is a surprising fact considering they aren't compatible with PS2 games universally.
