The lights are on
RPG fans, you're in for pleasant surprise. Today, on the PlayStation Blog, Square Enix announced that it's launching three legendary RPGs onto Sony's online service as part of a promotion it's calling the "Winter of RPGs."The Winter of RPGs kicks off with Chrono Cross, which will go live on November 8. This will be followed by Final Fantasy V, which will be released on November 22, and Final Fantasy VI (also known as Final Fantasy III) on December 6. As the blog post points out, Game Informer dubbed Final Fantasy VI the seventh best game of all time in our issue 100.

Time to top up my PSN account!
Chrono Cross for EU please,we already have FFV and FFVI on PSN
I wish SE would release these games to the Xbox it needs more RPGs.
OMFG FINALLY CHRONO CROSS!
I have the two games I really care about(FFVI and Chrono Cross)on PS1, that I can still play on my PS2. This will definitely benefit those gamers that don't have it anymore, or give new players a sense of JRPG goodness for the first time.
OMG. THIS IS AWESOME. I'm just wondering with all the great new releases of this winter, just how in the hell I'm going to manage to work these RPG re-releases in. Man, this is awesome... I am so excited.
But...I already own all of those games! Seriously Square Enix! Bring out some new games! Where are Final fantasy versus XIII, and FF Type-0!
Anyone else geek out when they saw Kefka?
argh, and i JUST now traded my ps3 DX time to go buy a psp
sweet i had wanted to play chrono cross ever since i beat chrono trigger but i havent ever been able to find it
Finally! I have been waiting for Chrono Cross to release ever since I heard it released in Japan. Even though I tend to focus my multi-platform and social gaming for the Xbox 360, I still enjoy my PS3 for the games that I know I can enjoy like the PSOne Classics and certain PSN games like TellTale's games.
Thanks for the Game Informin!
A few years ago there was a dry spell of RPGs and then Whoosh, the flood gates of Doma Castle opened up! (BTW, don't drink the water at Doma.)
just a release schedule? not even a sales price? $quare...$$quare....$$$quare
I loved FFVI back in the SNES days, and Chrono Cross is a game that I never got to finish on PSone. I would consider going back to either one of those classic, but I will be playing Skyrim. Then Mass Effect 3, and Bioshock Infinite...the list goes on. Retro Gaming is fun when theres no good new games to play. But with so much awesome current generation stuff coming out, its hard to go back to the old greats.
