Never played Kingdom Hearts. Play now or wait for HD remakes?

I know that KH:HD 1.5 is coming, but Newegg has the PS2 games for $11.99 new and I figure I'd most likely get all 3 for a cheaper price than the 1.5 remake...and then wait for KH2 to be HDified.

So, since I've never played the series before and I really want to, which do you guys think I should go for?

I'd wait for the 1.5 ReMIX version since KH1 will be the Final Mix version which has more content than the english version.

A US release of 1.5 has not been confirmed. The March release date is only for Japan. That being said KH1 is an amazing game, and it's worth buying it now even if you do buy 1.5 when (if) it comes out.

You could probably take your time and go through each main game, handheld spin-off and sequel, and there will still be no word about a U.S. release date for the HD remakes.

I hate seeing sigs with PC specs on them.

Yep, go play what's out now, in english. We may never get the remixes and even if we do... who knows when. So, enjoy.

You should get them now. Even as old as they are, they still look beautiful- better than a lot of current gen games even.

Besides, Square Enix hates the West and all it's Western fans, so the HD version will likely never be released outside Japan.

I'd wait for the Final Mix HD Remaster. The FM is a much more complete edition and even includes better balanced and new difficulties. Standard is now harder.

Try to wait until mid February and if by then we haven't gotten news on localization then go for the originals.
