Final Fantasy X HD PS Vita cross-save will be expensive

It is going to be a very exciting end of year for Final Fantasy fans, with the upcoming release of the highly sought after Final Fantasy X and X-2 HD remakes. Square-Enix has been taking their time on development to say the least, but we’ve just had the excellent confirmation that both games will now support a cross-save feature across PS3 and PS Vita platforms for those planning to pick up both versions.

Final Fantasy X HD PS Vita cross-save will be expensive

It essentially means that you can come home from work or school, sit down on the sofa with Final Fantasy X HD for a while, then pick up and carry on with your PS Vita when outside of the home or travelling for example. This is an amazing prospect to look forward to, but unfortunately a slightly pricey one at the same time.

It looks like Final Fantasy x HD will not be a qualifying game for Sony’s amazing cross-buy incentive, where you would get a PS Vita version of the same game for free when purchasing the PS3 version. Business is business though for both Square-Enix and Sony, and we have a feeling that some of you may still be tempted to make two purchases just to take advantage of the cross-save feature.

Just so you’re fully aware of the potential costs involved in pursuing this idea, Amazon has priced the PS3 version of Final Fantasy X and X-2 HD (both games come together on a single disc remember) at $40. At the moment there is no official price for the PS Vita version of Final Fantasy X HD and Final Fantasy X-2 HD, with both games instead coming separate on two Vita game cards.

That means that you could be looking at paying around $70 for the luxury of PS3 and PS Vita cross-save, if we assume that Final Fantasy X HD will be priced at $30, the same price that the likes of Soul Sacrifice currently sells for on Amazon. Considering that Final Fantasy X HD is a very big deal on PS Vita and considered a major new game, it could even have a full retail price of $40 – bringing the total costs to $80, which is almost slightly ridiculous.

Hopefully Sony are looking at this as well and will make the right decision in the end and have both games qualify in their cross-buy lineup. That way you would get both PS3 and PS Vita versions for $40 and it looks like a much more reasonable package on the whole.

We want cross-save as much as you do, but who is willing to pay $70-80 for it? Not many we expect.

    It’s worth it to me! I plan on buying all three, that game is just too important to me. But, I will probably have to trade stuff in so getting all three won’t be such a big hit to my bank account :)
