    Don't you just hate it when the posts don't help you at all...

    Since these games are old and you can only get the PSX games brand new, the only stores that I know might have them is GameStop / Babbages / Electronics Boutique.

    Try here for FF VII
    Try here for FF VIII

    But the prices are WAY TOO STEEP!!! :eek:

    You might even want to check for other companies outside the US, bound to be cheaper than these! :eek:

    Final Fantasy 8 has had its moments with a few people. FF8 did get a bit burned, but I believe it's just as good as FFVII. Most people just didn't like it because it was 'too realistic' or something like that.

    I didn't enjoy FFIX much though...

    Last thing, I agree that you should consider investing in a used playstation (or a new one for about $50). You won't get any crashes / issues and that the control is much better on the PSX. The keyboard is a bit more difficult to use.

    No, it is against forum rules. But why have it if you already have the console?

    LOL I looked that those PC prices, and it shows list price as $19.99!!! (for FF8) I don't think they will be selling those! Prehaps they can be bargined with...

    Target, Wal-Mart, even Sams Club should have FF7 for $10 brand spanking new. I think FF8 os now in the $10 bracket.
