    lol, hardly looks different. Sure as hell would not buy the same game in “HD”

  • Chris Tree

    Are you serious? It looks completely different! HD version isn’t fuzzy and there’s much more detail in the HD version. I for one will definitely be getting this. It’s a steal imo for only $40 for a remaster of X, X-2, both international versions which I never got to play, and the 30 minute clip at the end is an added bonus (although I’m not expecting much from it). And now I’m gonna get a 24 page art book for free if I pre-order? All on my PS3, not PS2, and both games on one disc. HELL YEAH! Thank you Square Enix!
