Don't pay attention to the boxart claiming 'Enhanced 4K' on Xbox One Final Fantasy 10 collection. It's False advertising by Microsoft =(

Thought so. I'd seen reports of a lot of aliasing and YouTube videos seemed to confirm it.

Funny seeing a bunch of others talking about how good it looked in 4k with HDR though.

Why do Square just half arse everything? One of Japan's biggest publishers and they couldn't be bothered touching the FF7,9 or 10 ports. And to have the nerve to charge $50 for a four year late port with no enhancements is rich.

Most likely were planning and couldn't get it in time for the release and too late to change the box art. Could come at a later date.

Yeah totally not worth 50 dollars. I only paid 33 dollars. Wait for Black Friday sales if you want the collection. I'm still waiting for Target to deliver it to my house

The port is four years old and was announced for Xbox last year. It's not coming. They couldn't even have been bothered adding analogue movement to FFIX or fixing its music loop bug.

Do you really think Xbox has proved itself worth actually putting effort into the porting of a jRPG? I mean really, Xbox isn't really known for its jRPG fans.

Maybe one day if Xbox fans start actually buying games in the genre then publishers and developers will put more effort into it on the Xbox platform but until then? Just expect minimum effort ports.

Really though, anybody who's serious about jRPGs already owns a PS4 and/or a Switch. You don't buy Xbox for jRPGs. (I do hope this changes next gen but it'll take a concerted effort on Microsoft's part as well as the average Xbox owner)

Now that said, the price is obviously too high in this case.
The commercial says that Church isn't for perfect people, I guess that's why I'm an atheist.

It's not on Microsoft that this was a crappy port. This is square enix game and they should have had more respect for their own work. But you're right about the price being too damn high.

It's False advertising by Microsoft =(

How so?

Are they the publisher?

In charge of the cover art?

Have a marketing deal?

Using info and marketing materials other than that provided by the publisher?
