Cool.

But why not just get the digital Steam version?

I'm going to when the Black Friday sale hits, along with FF7 and FF8, so I can play the New Threat, Ragnarok, and Alternate Fantasy mods. But outside of Chronicles, I now have all the PS1 Final Fantasies, Anthology V and VI, VII, VII, IX, and Tactics.

Yeah, I'm in the US.
It was a question, I obviously have no clue where you’re from. And I don’t see how I was being a ‘sarcastic wisecracker’ when I’m trying to assist you.

I’ve never seen a PS1 game that wasn’t black. A google search said they are all black. So things are pointing to the reality that all PS1 games are black. In the US. That’s why I asked if you were in the US.

Apologies then. Yes, I am in the US.

Didn't read all the pages, so someone might have answered this already. But just in case no one did: This is a legit copy of FF IX. Square produced copies of FF IX and Chrono Cross up until 2010, I think. The original disc manufacturer of the black CDs doesn't produce them anymore, so that's why your version comes on a regular CD.

Since you where so kind as to give the information you know about, let me tell you that you can set this site to show you 50 post per page.
It is nice for long debates and such.

Okay, cool. Thank you.

What a steal at $7 then.

You're welcome. Pretty good deal indeed.

I'm interested to know if they fixed Steiner's Thunder Slash ability in this reprint, since the glitch is absent in the PAL release.

I second that the game is legit. PS1 had many silver games (called platinum versions), usually for second and following printings of the game. I had one similar to that, with the case being a little different (it was from 2001 or 2002 after all).

Plus: if it was a pirated copy, you would not be able to play it on a PS1 or 2. Maybe the next ones can ready burned games, but 1 or 2 could not (unless modified for that purpose).
