Square bring FFVIII to PSP/PS3, Vagrant Story next?

Square's classic RPG now available on the PlayStation Store

FF:VIII is now available on the PlayStation Store.

FF:VIII is now available on the PlayStation Store.

In last night's PlayStation Store update, it was revealed that the classic RPG Final Fantasy VIII has landed on the service. Rumors point to a PSN release for another one of their classic RPGs very soon.

Last night, Sony's PlayStation Blog revealed its weekly new releases. While several important items were released, like the PSN game Puzzlegeddon and nine downloadable games for the PSP (seven previously UMD-only games, and two PSP minis), the most unexpected and welcome announcement was that the PS1 classic role-playing game Final Fantasy VIII is now available for $10, as long as you have 1.78 GB of space available on your system of choice--why can't they have four separate files like they did for the discs is beyond me. As a PS1 Classic, it can be played on both the PSP and PS3, and you can transfer saves between the two systems.

That might not be the only PSN RPG love Square-Enix provides this holiday season. With the game receiving a European release on the PlayStation store next Tuesday according to Destructoid, a US release could happen within days or weeks. The European price translates to a hair over $8.50, so US consumers shouldn't be paying a cent over $10 if all is right in the world.

Anyone planning on purchasing either of these games? If I can find my 35+ hour save from Final Fantasy VIII and transfer it to my PSP & PS3, I may pick up that game on PSN and finally finish the game once and for all.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
