Are you getting it?  

  1. 1. Are you getting it?



Recommended Posts

At one time, I had pre-ordered it. Then I realized: I don't particularly like Final Fantasy games, there would be nothing but FFXI on the drive (no demos, etc.), the HDD can't be used for gamesaves, and there weren't many games I planned to own which would utilize it, so I cancelled. Maybe if it had some robust Tivo-esque functions, but I don't see how that could be possible.

This pretty much sums up the way I feel. Ugh, you can't use it for game saves? :wtf: I know right now that I won't have the time to invest into FFXI so I'll keep my wallet in my pocket until I see what else is in store for the HDD.

The hard drive is such a massive waste. No game saves(except in possible future games), no widespread custom soundtrack support, minimal plans for downloadable content. That said, I have a 400mhz PC so I haven't really been able to play any MMORPGs, but I'd like to try one so I'll be picking up Final Fantasy this week and getting the HDD as a side effect.

I'll be picking it up. I'm a sucker for all other types of add-ons I never use for my PS2 - *cough*Network Adaptor*cough* - I might as well pony up for the HDD as well.

 

Besides, I bought my PS2 for the collection of Final Fantasy games on it, so I won't be missing out on FFXI.

I talked to one of the guys at gamestop yesterday who picked the HD up. He just started Final Fantasy but likes it a lot. However the only other games at the moment that will use the hard drive are Res Evil outbreak which helps with quicker load times and we know there will be Socom 2 maps. Other then that, if you dont want FF there are no reasons to pick up the HD.

I thought this was only for the Japanese version of RE?
