PSN: PS1 Games – Final Fantasy VII

1 min read


As I’m sure all of you know, a few PS1 games were released on PSN this week. Me being a Final Fantasy Fanboy was really excited to find out that one of those games was Final Fantasy VII.

Last night I jumped onto the PSN and lo-and-behold… there it was. The game cost is R95.00 and comes in at a hefty download size of 1.32GB. This works out to about a total of R165.00, if you take local bandwidth prices into account. Not a bad price for such a classic.

What makes it even better is that with this one download you can play the game on either your PS3 or PSP. You’re even able to copy your saved games from one to the other, allowing you to play this game anywhere and still keep your progress in-sync on both systems.

There has been some questions through-out the week on how the multi disc games (like this one) will work. It’s one download, with one install. When prompted for a disc change you press the PS button on your controller, select “Change Disc” and select the specific disc… easy as that.

Let’s hope other classic besides the ones announced will make their way to the PSN.

    Just an aside on the download thing, Werner, all PSN store downloads are served up on Akamai which has an SA mirror. Long story short, with a tiny work aroumd, one can download ALL PSN content with local bandwidth which costs R12,00 per gig from Axxess, or alternatively, people can just top out there 1 gig Telkom accounts and have a full 10 gigs to play with. Comes in handy. And cheaper, too.

    Yeah, you are quite right… I actually made a mistake with my calculation. It’s R70 for 10 GB’s locally (at WebAfrica) and not for 1 GB.

    So in truth the game will cost about R 100. Thanks for pointing that out.

    For those who does not know about the workin around:
    Log into PSN using your Int account
    Buy the game and start the download
    Switch to your local account (while downloading in the backgroudn)

    When I talk about “local account” I mean a local-only ADSL account at an ISP. Thus meaning jumping on your router and manually changing the ADSL account details.

    To tell the truth, I have no idea. I was with iBurst a few years ago and they didn’t have any type of “local only” accounts. Maybe check on their website or give them a call to find out if they have any such package.
