The lights are on
[UPDATE] It appears Sony got this one completely wrong.
On the official PlayStation Twitter feed, Sony backpedaled on its previous announcement.
"Yesterday, we incorrectly reported Final Fantasy VI & Chrono Trigger
coming to PSN this Tuesday. They are not. We apologize for the error."

After separate rumors that Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy VI (III in the U.S.) were headed to PlayStation Network, the time has finally come.
Surprisingly, Square Enix is dropping these two SNES-era RPG titans on the very same day. The PSN store usually updates on Tuesday so we should see it then.
This news comes on the heels of Chrono Trigger's confirmation for both iOS and Android phones. There is no release date yet announced for those versions of the game.

Dang I'm playing through VII and VIII right now. When I finished those I was gonna play IX, XII and play through X again when it came out on Vita. I guess adding one more Final Fantasy to the list couldn't hurt.
I just bought FFVI a couple weeks ago. If I had known it was coming to psn so soon I would have waited. Oh well. At least it's good news for others who don't own them yet.
Hmm... sweet news. I was about to buy Chono Trigger on the Wii yesterday (turned on the Wii originally just to replay Wind Waker, then decided to see what was new since the last time I had it on).
I'm glad I held off, my Wii system has a graphics glitch that I never got taken care off, and it pops up at the worst times so I'd rather play it on anything else. Now I just have to decide if I want it on PSN (probably) or my Android (don't play the games I have on it much right now).
Oh, and FF6 is pretty good too...
Most excellent. Two fantastic titles.
Not comming to XBLA? Darn. But i already the snes versions of both of these so it's all good :3
I have this on the ds and ps1 but would like to have it for the psp for when i feel the need, its nicer to play there for some reason on rpgs... gotta be like 5 or 6 bucks, no more..
A PC release for both of these would be AWESOME
I still have my ps1 discs of these games and I just recently finished my playthrough of FF6 so it's a no go for me.
Why the *** do these not come out on XBLA???
Woot! I'll be getting this, regardless of the fact I own Chrono Trigger for Snes, PS1 Anthology pack, and Nintendo DS. I'll also pick up FF VI since it's been a long time since I've played through that. I hope this means we can get a release of Chrono Cross since that was already released in Japan on PSN. Keep the classics coming Sony!
I almost want to buy a PS3 because of this.
Me. I haven't played either of them. Don't kill me!
i will probably check out final fantasy VI once my rpg back log is gone through
