Ultimate Hits a hit

Five hundred thousand. That is the number of copies that Square Enix's Ultimate Hits budget series has sold since its inception in September 2005. Since then, it has been a remarkable tool for the company to curb the high prices associated with the sales of used titles and personally pocket the popularity of their classics. To accompany this tremendous success, Square Enix will be releasing no fewer than sixteen more titles into the Ultimate Hits line on July 20, including Valkyrie Profile and Final Fantasy Tactics. Are you listening, Konami? I want my Suikoden II. But until then, here is the full list of titles receiving an upcoming Ultimate Hits release:

  1. Star Ocean: Till the End of Time, 2,800 yen ($24.44 USD)
  2. Dragon Quest V: Tenkuu no Hanayome, 2,800 yen ($24.44 USD)
  3. Dragon Quest VIII: Sora to Umi to Daichi to Norowareshi Himegimi, 2,800 yen ($24.44 USD)

  2. Is it that hard of a concept to understand? They have been released again (hence re-release) so people who previously couldn't buy them now can. Unless you're confusing all this with "remakes", in which case you can sleep soundly knowing that SE couldn't remake this many titles at once.

  3. It's basically nothing short of a ripoff since there's no reason to pay $20 for a copy of FFVII when you can get a perfectly worthwhile copy at Gamestop for $9.99. It might lower the relative cost of these games on eBay, though. Overall useful just so that certain products become more available and less rare.

    Besides, you can play PS1 games on your PS2 (and PS3).

  4. Except it's over in Japan, not that I know what their retailers are like with games. Over here you can't get FF games that easily from second-hand dealers, some are 'rarer' than others.
