There is an 85 percent discount on the purchase of the action game Left Alive, which currently costs only 8.99 euros - normally 59.99 euros are due for this.

Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster Could Come to Consoles If There's Demand, Says Square Enix

Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster Consoles

Hmmm, we're going to have to file this one under 'Square Enix is taking the piss again'. In a new Q&A regarding the recently announced Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster, the Japanese publisher has hinted that the collection could end up on other platforms if there's enough demand and support. Right now, the remastered games are only coming to PC and mobile.

It comes across as a typically tone deaf comment from Square Enix. There is obviously demand for Pixel Remaster on consoles — that's why the E3 announcement was met with such criticism. Official trailers were bombarded with dislikes, and the company's social media accounts were hounded. You're publishing and remastering a bunch of classic RPGs, Square — just slap them on everything!

But maybe it's not that simple. Perhaps the budget on these remasters is limited, and Square Enix needs proof of interest on PC and mobile before it commits any additional resources. Still, though, this just seems like yet another baffling Square Enix decision to us.
