Following up to the fan favorite release of FFVII and FFVIII, PS3 and PSP owners will have a new and exciting opportunity to immerse themselves, once again, into the world of Final Fantasy.
Considered by many gamers to be a must-play title for any RPG fan, FFIX will soon to be available for North American fans via the PlayStation Network. If you missed Final Fantasy IX during the early PlayStation era, or are dreaming of reliving the time-tested FFIX adventure, your chance is coming soon.
Sit tight and keep your eye on the PlayStation.Blog for important announcement information, including the release date, coming soon!
Lyfe’s Take: The last few years at the PlayStation E3 Press Conference, Sony and Square-Enix have announced that a PSN-port of a PS1 Final Fantasy would be live for download that day. 10 to 1 this is the case and the game is slightly over a month away.

Sony Computer Entertainment America has begun selling PlayStation Network content via online retailer Amazon.com.
The service is so far only available in the US, and features over 200 items including new games such as Fat Princess and classics including SOCOM and Twisted Metal.
“We are excited to expand our current library of videogame platform downloads,” said Paul Ryder, vice president of consumer electronics for Amazon.com.
“PlayStation Network games are an important addition and we plan to continue making it easier for customers to instantly enjoy new content as well as their favourite games from the comfort of their living rooms.“
Amazon already sells WiiWare and Xbox Live titles through its online store.

According to a Sega document, PlayStation 2 and Dreamcast titles are coming to the PlayStation 3.
“Marked as confidential, the Sega document–which contains notes derived from a meeting with SCEA on August 5th–clearly states that Sony wants to sell ALL PlayStation 2 games on the PlayStation Network including Grand Theft Auto Vice City, older Sonic titles and more. There’s also mention that Sega plans to advertise on television in the same manner as EA Madden and NCAA spots by incorporating the PlayStation 3 controller (for co-marketing money).”
“In addition to the PlayStation 2 emulator, the Sega document also reveals that Dreamcast games are on the way to the PlayStation Network as well. “If we provide a list of DC titles, SCEA will let us know which ones they’re interested in having exclusively,” Sega reports. “If we give them a long period of exclusivity, they’ll give us more marketing support.” This may also mean that Dreamcast games could also make their way onto Xbox Live, with Microsoft snagging a few “exclusive” titles of its own.”
“The Sega document also reveals that Sony plans to launch the motion controller March 2010 in Japan, followed by a Spring release here in 2010; the bundle and pricing details were estimated to appear on September 1. SCEA will provide Sega with a list of IPs that the company expect to work well with the new technology including Virtua Tennis and London Olympics.”
