FFVII, FFVIII Top Two Downloaded Games For PSP
Who says a remake of Final Fantasy VII wouldn't be gigantic? Who says new gamers aren't interested in old-school RPGs?
Well, apparently, PSP owners are all about the old gems from great studios like Squaresoft. If you check out the latest episode of Pulse - now available to download on the PlayStation Network - they reveal the top 10 downloaded games for the PSP in 2010 thus far. And look what sits up at numbers one and two; Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VIII, two of the greatest RPGs in history and certainly two of the best overall games in history. Here's the top 10 list as we near the end of March:
- 1. Final Fantasy VII (PSP/PS3)
- 2. Final Fantasy VIII (PSP/PS3)
- 3. Tetris
- 4. God of War: Chains of Olympus
- 5. Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories
- 6. LittleBigPlanet
- 7. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories
- 8. Madden NFL 10
- 9. Gran Turismo
- 10. Resident Evil 2 (PSP/PS3)
Of course, you can play both of the top two games on either the PS3 or the PSP but the point is, enthusiasm for those old-fashioned titles clearly hasn't waned too much. Even Tetris, which currently sports a much-too-high $10 price tag, has been downloaded plenty. The reality of the situation is that people have not forgotten the greats from yesteryear so if Square-Enix thinks they wouldn't get a return on their admittedly big investment with a FFVII remake...well, I just point to when they asked about the idea at their Twitter page, and everyone went nuts.
