I was musing recently about the concept of backward compatibility. Specifically, it struck me that the PlayStation 2 may still be the finest example of the concept in terms of execution and scope, a feature that Sony promptly dropped when it released the PlayStation 3.
Here's my dirty secret, though: my PlayStation 2 is still hooked up and is used almost exclusively as a "Final Fantasy XII" machine. (And "Dragon Quest 8," but mostly "XII.") It's one of my favorite games, which is why it's exciting to hear that Square Enix are considering -- if only vaguely and reticently -- an HD remake of "Final Fantasy XII" in the vein of the PlayStation 3 and Vita remasters of "Final Fantasy X" and "X-2."
In an interview with "Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster" producer and Square Enix mainstay Yoshinori Kitase, RPGSite broached the subject by asking if other games in the series might be facelifted for HD consoles.
