We've all been there: fully immersed in a console game when we suddenly remember we have another pressing engagement on the other side of town. That involves our wife. And probably shoes.

'Curses!' we exclaim, slamming the controller down in disgust and weeping all the way to our appointment.

But that doesn't have to be the case any more when it comes to Square Enix's HD remakes of Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2.

That's because both games will support Cross-Save, meaning you can pick up your game on your Vita exactly from where you left off on your PS3.

Unfortunately, it doesn't look as though either of these Final Fantasy Vita games will boast Cross-Buy support, so you're gonna have to purchase two copies of each game to take advantage of the Cross-Save functionality.

And while the two games are available in a bundle for PS3, they will be sold separately for Vita. That means you'll need to fork out for three games to make the most of the deal.

As well as support for Cross-Save, these two Final Fantasy HD remakes are reportedly going to feature an extra 30-minute cutscene. This cutscene will be written by Kazushige Nojima, a veteran Final Fantasy scribe who worked on the original games as well as plenty of others in the FF canon.

We're still waiting for Squeenix to confirm a concrete release date for the polished and preened versions of the PS2 classic, but we'll be sure to let you know once we hear anything solid.
