    This might be only a box for Collectors.

    For Players not so much.

    Up to Final Fantasy VI they probably have the loading times/PsOne issues. Also Final Fantasy 3 were never released on a Sony System hence the question which version it will be(DS/iOS etc.). So out of the first six Nr. 3 might be the only without the loading times and also a first timer on sony system.

    7,8,9 are already cheap to get because of the rerelease on PSN. (same for 4,5,6)

    Where is X-2?
    Also as shitty as some might say it is, technically it would still belong in this box. (because 8 is in it too)
    Also: Which version of XII (normal, or “refined” Zodiac System)
    XIII-2 inlcuded?

    In my opinion looking at it as a gamer:
    You might want to get FF I on PSP or GBA.
    Either Skip FF II or you already chose I for GBA then it is already with it on the cart. FF II is just different. It’s not that bad.
    FF III as I already said it, would be the first time on a Sony System and might or might not suffer from long loading times as all up to FF VI do.
    FF IV, V VI are very good gameplaywise but after many rereleases I would prefer other versions than the PsOnes

    VII, VIII, IX in a package is ok. Imho VII is the most popular/famous one, VIII shit from fans, IX is very good again. X is good too, XI is useless unless you speak chinese/cantonese/japanese whatever most on the servers do speak, also MMO (aren’t the server already down?)
    XII was imo good, but there are different opinions/versions on that one.

    with XIII(-2) Square released decent RPG this gen but nothing that comes close to the older ones.

    Def. a box for Collectors, who don’t open it up and have others versions to play the games on or might open it up but won’t play the games and just use the avatar items while listening to the soundtrack.

    @2 It will probably be the upcoming PSP version of FFIII (or a Vita download), since this seems to be an almost exclusively Sony release.

    Regardinf FFXI, that’s still going, and Square even admitted that it’s the most profitable Final Fantasy ever made.

    The PS1 games and PS2 games could easily all fit on one Blu-ray, and PS2 games are on PSN, so they’ll probably be optimised for PS3. PS1 games run natively on PS3, so that’s not really an issue.

    @3 I wish and hope for the buyers that they optimised those titles that need it (1,2,4,5,6).

    Regardless how good Final Fantasy XI is on paper the language barrier might still be there unless the Big Box remains japan only which still needs an anouncement if so.

    Totally missed the FF III Port(?) to PSP/Vita. Guess that might truly be it.

    I guess I wait a bit for more Info to clarifiy what really is in the box after all. It might end up having more psp titles than expected and with that getting more value for gamers imo.
