Google's announcement on Android Oreo suggested that not every Google-made and Google-sold Android smartphone would be getting the update.

Final Fantasy IX gets a surprise re-release on PlayStation 4

When it comes to the question of the best Final Fantasy game, the original PlayStation's Final Fantasy IX usually gets left out of the debate. Many will tell you either Final Fantasy VI or Final Fantasy VII are the best, with a few weirdos claiming that Final Fantasy VIII is actually at the top of the list, but there aren't many throwing their support behind Final Fantasy IX.
