Honestly, I am sorry to the Xbox fans. There have been more than enough opportunities for Square Enix to port the collections to Xbox and if they aren't doing it with this re-collection now then it's not happening any time soon, at least not until a long time after KH3 launches (echoing Nomura's words from 2017).

It must really suck to be on Xbox and want to play KH3 but watching PlayStation get the same collections over and over again.

My first thought as well. XD

My second thought when first seeing the announcement was Xbox fans were finally getting the games, and I got rather annoyed when it turned out not to be the case. It just doesn't make sense not to port them over. I feel terrible for them.

Oh my God, I thought they had actually remade movies for the PS4 for all the games (and not the 5 minute snippets) and decided to sell those.
But this? I am over the moon, I wanted to buy both discs for quite a while now and I nearly did it several times, but now I know to wait and get this compilation instead. I love the cover a lot! It's beautiful.

My goodness haha. Glad my cousin hasn't acted on any of my recommended purchases yet in preparation for KH3, since we keep getting new, more convenient releases. This should be the last one though.

After this the only way i see it releasing on xbox is if they just want to release it on switch and pc at the same time similar to the recent FF games announcements.

I can't see them doing a standalone release only for xbox at any point after this.

Why not? They did trailers for the 1.5+2.5 collection. This is a bigger deal with the entire series in one place three months before KH3. You’d think they’d want to get the word out on what they’re selling.

I just spent a few months completely beating them on KH 1.5 and KH 2.5.
Will my saves work for this collection?!
Please tell me yes.

They should work, this is essentially the exact same games, just being re-released in a new collection.

The 1.5+2.5 disc and the 2.8 disc should be the exact same as their releases last year (having the patches on disc would be nice, but I think the patches push 1.5+2.5 over 50GB) so any save data you already have on PS4 should be compatible here.

They've already done this though. The trailer after the Pirates one at the Sony conference can easily just be recycled with this box art and info replacing the "all-in-one" info.
