After launching on the PS4 last year, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster will make its PC debut (via Steam) later this week.

The Steam re-release will include all the special features found in the PS4 version including a modern graphical upgrade, a rearranged soundtrack, and the never-befre-available bonus content from the International Editions. Steam users will also be able to access an Auto Save feature and optional “Boosters” including High Speed Mode and No Encounter Mode. A similar “Booster” system was added to Final Fantasy IX‘s Steam release back in April.

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster will be available to download through Steam on May 12.

Have you left The Last of Us behind? Maybe the release of a standalone version of The Last of Us: Left Behind on the PlayStation Store will convince you to pick it up again. Now available for just $9.99, the game can be downloaded now on the PS3 and PS4.

Also available this week is a string of other new titles, both big and small…

  • Project CARS (PS4) is a slightly ambitious car racing simulation from Slightly Mad Studios.
  • Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster (PS4) brings two of the best-loved RPGs in the series to Sony’s current-generation console for the first time.
  • Schrodinger’s Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark (PS4) is a wacky puzzle platformer that has one of the best titles ever.
  • Nom Nom Galaxy (PS4) is the latest game from PixelJunk creators Q-Games.

More information on all of these titles (and a few others) can be found after the break. And, as always, a full rundown of this week’s new game add-ons and discounts can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)

We’re keeping it short and sweet, once again, with this week’s new release report.

Project CARS, Slightly Mad’s automotive simulation, skids onto the PS4 and Xbox One this week after its PC pitstop last week. The game will also be released for the Wii U later this year.

Also this week, a pair of Final Fantasy remakes have found new homes. Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster will make its way onto the PS4, while Final Fantasy IV: The After Years is now available to download on the PC.

Finally, a pair of simulators will launch for the PC this. Trainz: A New Era is a… wait for it… train simulator. And Airport Firefighters: The Simulation is a simulator about… wait just a bit longer for it… a simulator about airport firefighters.

That’s it for your retail release report. As always, the PlayStation Store, Xbox Games Store, Nintendo eShop, and Steam will pick up the slack with a variety of new downloadable titles throughout the week.

PS4 version of Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster will launch on May 12

finalfantasyxx-2-header

Square Enix has announced that PS4 players will be able to get their hands on the Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster beginning May 12. Aside from enhanced graphics, the PS4 version doesn’t differ too greatly from the compilation that was released for the PS3 and Vita last year. However, one of the major changes in the PS4 version is the ability to switch between the game’s original soundtrack and a remastered version. Cross-Save Functionality and Vita Remote Play are also included.

Players who decide to pre-order Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster will receive an exclusive desk calendar featuring artwork by Yoshitaka Amano, one of the illustrators who helped shape Final fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2‘s look 15 years ago.

Square Enix confirms that Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster is coming to PS4

finalfantasyxboxAfter being teased on their online store a few days ago, Square Enix has confirmed that Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster will be making the jump to the PS4. The two-pack should be available sometime next Spring, presumably right around the same time as Final Fantasy VII.

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster will be released as a retail disc and will include “system-exclusive features” on the PS4. But aside from that news, Square Enix isn’t ready to go into detail on just what those features may be.

Oh, and the publisher also revealed that Final Fantasy VII will be priced at $15.99 and will be available exclusively through the PlayStation Store.

Your TitanFall is ready to be the best-selling game of March 2014

titanfall-header

TitanFall-mania has engulfed the NPD Group as the market research firm confirmed today that Respawn’s shooter is the best-selling game of March 2014.

March releases dominated the latest bestseller list as InFamous: Second Son (#2), South Park: The Stick of Truth (#3), Dark Souls II (#5), and Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster (#8) all cracked the top ten. The retail release of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition continues to hang on as it checks in at #10 once again. The console port of Mojang’s popular game will surely get a boost in May as Sony will make the disc-based version Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition available on store shelves. According to Joystiq, total hardware/software/accessory sales were up 3% over March 2013 with a 78% increase in console sales according for the majority of the sales bump.

The complete top ten for March 2014 can be found after the break. (more…)

Your eyes do not deceive you, this is reality… Sony has updated their virtual storefront, the PlayStation Store, with a ton of new games.

Leading the way is Sony’s next major PS4 release, InFamous: Second Son. Second Son will spin off with a new main character (Delsin) and a new locale (Seattle) because Cole McGrath lost his life at the end of InFamous 2. In a break from tradition, you’ll have to wait until Friday (March 21) to continue your infamous ways.

Also available for the PS4 this week is Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, Hideo Kojima’s prologue to the next Metal Gear game, and Stealth Inc.: Ultimate Edition, a next-gen upgrade to the popular puzzle platformer. Ground Zeroes is also available to download from the PS3 section of the store. Finally, the mining platformer SteamWorld Dig makes the next-generation leap in a special PS4/Vita Cross-Buy edition.

But don’t think the PS3 is being left out in this week’s PlayStation Store update. The Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster has finally been released (it’s available on the Vita too), along with Tecmo Koei’s insane zombie slasher, Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, and Vlambeer’s dogfighting sim, Luftrausers (which was released as a PS3/Vita Cross-Buy title).

More information on all of these games can be found after the break and a full rundown of this week’s new game add-ons can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)

TitanFall made a huge splash last week, but a new set of publishers are ready to compete for your gaming dollar this week with a new set of games. Are you ready? Here we go…

Konami and Kojima Productions will release Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes for next-generation consoles (PS4 and Xbox One) and current-generation consoles (PS3 and Xbox 360) this week. The game will serve as a prologue to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, which does not currently have a release date, and will serve as an introduction to the franchise’s brand new open world mechanics.

Also available this week is the next major PS4 exclsuive from Sony, InFamous: Second Son. With Second Son, the InFamous series gains a new protagonist and a new city to wreak havoc in. And speaking of havoc, Tecmo Koei will release Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, a wild collaboration between Team Ninja, Spark Unlimited, and Keiji Inafune’s Comcept, for the PS3 and Xbox 360 this week.

Finally, Square Enix’s Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster will bring the beloved pair of games to the PS3 and Vita this week. It will be joined the week’s lone Wii U release, the kart racing game Hello Kitty Kruisers.
