    I bought this as a birthday present for my brother. I had seen it on PBS but he missed it. We both love the music from Final Fantasy and on PBS there were quite a few Final Fantasy songs performed. On the DVD there are no Final Fantasy songs performed at all. The only Squaresoft song performed was the Chrono Cross theme (which is awesome)

    The music that is here is excellent and well worth the purchase. As for the missing Final Fantasy songs I blame Squaresoft because it turns out that they weren't allowed to include such music on this DVD. However there was a sticker on the front of the DVD (on the outside of the cellophane) which claimed that there was music from Final Fantasy on it. Obviously they had planned on including such music and probably had to pull it some time in the production process. The sticker must have been an oversight.

    If you aren't specifically looking for Final Fantasy music then go ahead and purchase this, it's great music and a lot of fun.

    The music is fantastic, and for a first effort, this is a great package. A couple nitpicks...
    Interviews between songs should have been dropped, or there should have been the option to watch the entire concert from start to finish without interruptions. Yea, even a minute or so of the intermission.
    The Advent Rising transfer is horrible. No other game looks that bad, and the camera recording the screen looks fine, but direct transfer footage is just awful.
    Lastly, it's in 1080i, not p. Not a huge deal, but something to note.

    All that said, I'd still pick up the package, particularly for the price it's being offered at. The music is wonderfully performed, and if you're a fan of video games (which, if you're looking at this, you probably are), it's worth a purchase.

    A little bit about the concert first; I have never been to a VG LIVE concert but I have been to a Final Fantasy "Dear Friends" and the recent "Distant Worlds" concert. So picking this one up I knew what to expect. Great music but familiar in a different light with all the cool (but cheesy) theatrics. In all honesty, hearing your favorite gaming tunes in a live symphony and choir is truly an unforgettable if not inspiring experience. Really, words cannot describe how these or in this case VG LIVE concerts are; IT IS SOMETHING TO BE EXPERIENCED FIRST HAND.

    However if you were unable to make the concerts, Shout Factory was kind enough to grace us with this BD/DVD combo for your home viewing experience.

    PRESENTATION:
    I am one for the full home theater immersion of a live concert with no interruptions (except to what is actually happening at the concert) but I am not too fond with the side commentary before each presentation. They should of had an option to watch the concert without commentary. Not experience ruining for most but that is just me, it feels a bit disjointed.

    VIDEO:
    Despite what the box labels (1080p) this concert is encoded in 1080i. Surprisingly though, this is a very clean transfer that would rank next to other great Live Concerts such as Rush, NIN, Incubus, Within Temptation, etc. Though sometimes it does look a bit soft in some shots, that is to be expected in a low lighted environment. But definitely for the most part it is an eye pleasing and crisp picture.

    AUDIO: DTS-MA
    If you are expecting an aural experience as with most great live concert BDs, VG LIVE somewhat fails in this department. For the most part it trumps the clarity and projection found in standard DTS counterpart.

    The DVD seemed a bit short and there was a few songs that I was surprised weren't on there (For example: One-Winged Angel or any FF music) but overall it's pretty great.

    Aside from the amazing music they did, they also showcased the Video Game Pianist and also had Ralph Baer on stage for a moment which was pretty cool. If you like good music or good video games, this is definitely for you. As someone who grew up loving both, this was perfect for me!

    I attended this show live in New Orleans where this was recorded. Wow - I had no idea it would be the same show on the video. I knew they were recording but I thought they might record them all. I enjoyed the show live and the recording. Some have said that they thought the discussions took away from the music. Without the discussions you would lose the history that was being presented. When the music is being played there is no discussion. This is colorful, dynamic and exciting. The Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra is featured in this show. One can also buy the music on a DVD. I have both. Don't miss out on this gaming musical entwining visual and audio entertainment. Yeah LPO! Who Dat New Orleans.

    The disc is good overall except Square Enix did not let them put Final Fantasy music at the end (which is actually advertised on the disc label sticker) which really ruined the climax of the concert. I see no hurt if they allow it as this product is not really competing with Square's concerts. People love it would like to get all related items as they are totally different good experiences.
