    Good afternoon all :)
    I Got both Final Fantasy X and X-2 at launch on the PS2 and then again on the Vita. After looking around the internet for a while I've not found anywhere that directly compare the Vita version to the one that's just released on switch.

    Having recently buying a Switch and not having may games I want to know if it's worth buying it a third time or is there just not enough difference to justify buying it at full price again?

    Just for clarification If I did buy it again it would almost universally be played in handheld mode

    In advance I thank you for your time.

    Final Fantasy X is amazing and always good to play again and again. I think I've bought it 3 times now. PS2, PS Vita and again on PS4. I've probably played it 5 times by now.

    In terms of whether it's worth buying again, it's really a question of whether you want to play it again.

    I have the same issue with my Switch though. As I'm not a fan of Nintendo franchises, it's mostly been collecting dust. The only time I can see myself blowing off the dust is for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 and Pokémon Sword/Shield.

    I mainly got it for pokemon as well and my friend wanted a quick sale so I got it for £160 with let's go included. No where seems to be saying anything about the vita version (which I have, never bothered with the ps4).

    Its just £40 is a lot of money for an old game, it may be to games in one but lets face it. it's the main game I'd be buying it for. While X-2 is a good game its not that great.

    But I probally will get XII when it comes out on switch since I've never bought or played it again since I got it on PS2.

    It's that Nintendo tax you pay for anything on the Switch. I agree with X-2, I've probably played it twice and not finished it either time.

    I didn't bother with Let's Go as I already play Pokémon Go a lot.

    The other option is to pay for Nintendo Online and get access to all those NES games?

    imo probably not worth it, even for FF12 if only play once on PS2. From what I heard, switch physical copies are much expensive due to their special storage media. Personally would rather invest on exclusives like Zelda BotW to name a few.

    (fyi, played FFX-2 twice on PS2 way back then on fresh releases, the JP release, then western one which oddly left it right before final boss & never bothered to re-finish it. lol)

    I have FF1-10 on my vita so buying any again on switch seems redundant. Although I am tempted by 9 for the enhancements, but I'll probally wait for a good sale offer.

    But I will probally pick 12 up as it never really clicked with me the first time and I never even made it to the half way point.

    I agree with you I do not see the point of buying FF1-10 again on the switch.
