Pre-Order Into the Future… Final Fantasy XIII-3 & X | X-2 HD Remastered

By Viet Do . November 2, 2013 . 11:00am


Your far-into-the-distant-future pre-order Deals of the Week are headlined by two solid Final Fantasy titles, namely Final Fantasy XIII-3: Lightning Returns and Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remastered Limited Edition (deep breaths…).  XIII-3 will be on Xbox 360 and PS3, whereas X|X-2 HD will only be on the PS3.


While Lightning Return will be out February 11th next year, the HD Remastered version of the PS2 titles Final Fantasy X and X-2 currently has no release date listed for North America. (Japan gets the game in December 26, 2013.)  Both titles get an easy $5 off via NewEgg.


In other far-into-2014 titles, Demon Gaze for PS Vita is also on the $5 off pre-order sale block and releases March 25th. While we wait for the NA localization to arrive, developer Experience is already hard at work on another awesome-looking Vita RPG.

    I’ll preorder Lightning Returns but I never want to play X or X-2 ever again.

    • 하세요

      Interesting. X is the one of the few FF titles I find worth replaying multiple times.

      • Pyrotek85

        I didn’t think X was bad but it didn’t really click for me either. Strangely I enjoyed playing X-2 a lot more, even though I get the impression that most people hate it.

        • subsamuel01

          X and X- 2was probably the last good final fantasy game

    • Pinwheel

      I think X was a pretty good game, so I could replay it again. I don’t know why you’re getting downvoted though. Just because somebody has a different view of things or a different opinion doesn’t mean they’re making a bad comment, people.

      • This is the entire point of the downvote. Anonymous, unexplained negative feedback. Disqus sucks for even implementing it.

    • I gave X two good chances…. Worth a third shot?

      • sakusakusakura_nyo

        I liked X when it first came out but I don’t think it holds up today. It’s still worth playing through once if you didn’t beat it already though.

  • Prinny Dood

    So much for 80 vita games releasing this year dood ! I guess it was 75 Indies 3 three AAA 2 ports :( why dood why

  • TheExile285

    Hmm, already got Injustice UE pre-ordered at GS. That Demon Gaze pre-order is tempting but depending on when it releases, I’m too impatient to wait for shipping.

    Maybe I’ll grab FFX/X-2 PS3 HD from Newegg since I’m most likely getting both verisons.

  • BB

    Wait did they change the title for lightning returns? Because now they saying Final Fantasy XIII-3: Lightning Returns…….

    • RichyGaming

      They’re the same thing.

    • Wait what

      It’s just that website, the official title is the same.

      • BB

        I see. XD

  • Somber

    Excited for LR & X|X-2 HD!

  • Guest

    what is this guy talking about? FFX/X-2 is coming for vita too. Shot.

  • Johnnyxt

    FFX/X-2 HD is also for the vita guy. Post is shot.

  • Monterossa

    NewEgg = no international shipping :(

    • Newegg doesn’t fulfill pre-orders half the time, so you’re not missing much.

  • Manny Being Manny

    I’ll pass on X/X-2 for PS3. Gonna get it for Vita instead

    • woops fail whale there. thought it was PS3 only because i didn’t think to search for the twink pack stuff

    • Shady Shariest

      Is there no cross-buy for them?

      • TheExile285

        Nope. Third Parties never do Cross-Buy. That is something 1st party and some Indie games do.

        • Shady Shariest

          Ah, thank you, will keep in mind :3

  • Longsun_Zhao

    I’m holding out for more release details on X/X-2 HD. I hope they do a PS3/Vita combo pack deal, as long as it’s all in physical media.

  • Aoshi00

    How does the discount work, I clicked on the Newegg link for FFX/X-2 HD and the $5 coupon doesn’t show, neither does manually entering the code.. still says $39.99?

    For Lightning Returns, pre-ordered it from Newegg back when it had a $12 off coupon :) back from Sept 2012 *.*;;

    never mind, works now.. great, saved over $5 on FFX HD since there’s tax, canceled Amazon’s pre-order :P still importing the Jpn ver though..

  • The 15ᵗʰ Angel

    My hope for the X HD Remaster is they patched Penance so people cant take the easy way out and kill him with Yojimbo I felt really sad when I learned that was possible.

  • Minos

    I might get Lightning Returns for $5 in 6 months or so.

  • Neppygear

    Lightning Returns is called XIII-3 now? /probably late

    • AnimusVox

      I was noticing that too. I mean, I always called it XIII-3 but it’s kinda weird to see haha.

  • Shady Shariest

    I am eager to hear how Injustice will play on Vita.

    • TheExile285

      Theres already gameplay for it out. Graphics are solid.

      • Shady Shariest

        Oh, arrite, thanks again :P
        Will have to take a look then :3

  • Masa

    i hope X/X-2 HD sells more copies than Fantasy XIII-3 :)

    • Lynx

      Because an older game being re-released always sells more than a brand new experience.

      Than again, this is the Final Fantasy fanbase. /sarcasm.

      • Pekola

        The ‘fans’ are so salty over XIII that they’ll complain each time something about Lightning or XIII crops up.

        It’s like they can’t let it go. Ever. They can’t see Lightning Returns do well because they can’t stand to see what they think is ‘bad’ do well.

        Opinions. How do they ****ing work. It’s pathetic.

    • TheExile285

      Why? You want the more expensive game to sell less than the HD port?

  • 3PointDecoupage

    I cant wait for -INSERT DATE HERE- when Final Fantasy X comes out!

  • Definitely in for FFX/X-2. Newegg has been great for me so far expect for Project X Zone which I wanted the LE edition of but the only got the standard copies which Namco never mentioned since I thought that LE was the only version but I remedied that by exchanging my newegg copy for a LE copy at Gamestop. Anyways one of their distribution companies is close to me so games usually come 1 to 2 days after release.

  • Yan Zhao

    I’ll admit Lightning Returns seems like it might just be an amazing game from what they’ve shown so far. But I’ll still wait for pre-order, because they might reveal a collector edition, and Im a sucker for those.

    • Aoshi00

      I thought of waiting for the possible limited edition as well, just like 13-2 w/ the soundtrack, but they still haven’t said anything, so I just ordered the Jpn OST and pre-ordered LR now (well, I ordered from Newegg over a year ago w/ $12 discount lol..)

  • I’m in no hurry to get either of those. I have a feeling that they’ll be around for a while and will drop in price as the months pass.

  • I will buy Vita version. JRPG is the best playing on portable device.

  • Detrimont

    already preordered X/X-2 special edition

  • Chido55

    Only for Vita whereas X / X-2 comes in the same pack. You need to buy them separately for Vita version.

    Well the latter aint gonna stop me from getting them.
