PSN Newsletter Confirms FFVIII Is "Coming Soon"
Final Fantasy VIII is maybe the only entry in the legendary role-playing franchise that exists on a love/hate relationship with the fans. You either think it's one of the best entries...or one of the worst.
Either way, it's finally scheduled to come to the PlayStation Network in digital download form so you can play it on your PS3 or PSP. This one has already been on the Japanese Store since September and we know it'll be hitting Europe at some point but due to some sort of testing issue, we still don't have a launch date. On the other hand, US gamers can rejoice because SCEA was good enough to clue us in via their latest PSN newsletter. You may have received it as well and if so, you probably didn't miss it: right there under the "Coming Soon" section, you will find the PS1 classic, Final Fantasy VIII (it's right below "District 9"). We don't have a solidified date but just to know it's on the way is a plus and besides, if it's in the "Coming Soon" part of the newsletter, it can't be far off. Typically, products that appear in that section of the newsletter are only a few weeks off, so keep an eye on the PSN for the rest of this month. If you never had the opportunity to play FFVIII back in the good ol' PS1 days, you really don't know what you're missing. Although it was a little unorthodox as far as FFs go, it still boasted one of the best storylines ever.
And am I the only one that says this game still features one of the best intros and endings in history? I hope not.
