GGG writes about which platforms would be a good fit for a potential Final Fantasy VII remake should it ever happen.
PS3 and/or PS4
Only on Playstation
Is there a point in Playstation exclusives? It's selling well enough with just hardware. Not against FF on PS4, just saying.
As long as it's as kickass as the original then.I don't care where what it's on.
Well, Sony still owns the rights to Final Fantasy VII since they funded a good chunk of its development as well as publishing it. For Square to release a FF7 remake on anything BUT the PS3 or PS4 would cost them a good chunk of money to buy out the IP rights or they may even have to give up a large share of the profits on ALL the versions sold, regardless of platform. Part of me wants a remake just because it would be close to Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children in graphic fidelity, which would end up being a damn gorgeous game to play. However, another part of me DOESN'T want a remake just to keep the game's nostalgia where it is and also not have Square botch it up like they did with Final Fantasy XIII (and its obnoxious sequels).
"Well, Sony still owns the rights to Final Fantasy VII since they funded a good chunk of its development as well as publishing it." @ GameSpawn: what about the re-release of FF7 on Steam? Yeah, Sony does own the rights to FF7.
"what about the re-release of FF7 on Steam? Yeah, Sony does own the rights to FF7." That is because the PC version already existed to be ported to Steam. Sony published the console version and hold rights to versions on consoles. Square (as Eidos) published the PC version in 1998. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... So, as far as CONSOLE releases, Square must ask Sony first as they JOINTLY own the Final Fantasy VII characters and IP. As far is PC releases, Square was the Developer AND Publisher, so they can release direct through their own eStore (which they DID for a while) or port to Steam (which happened after poor management of Square's own digital distribution system - they just let Steam manage the digital versions). Square can change ALL of the characters to the point it no longer represents what FF7 is and release on whatever they please. Keep in mind, with the exception of the Mobile games Before Crisis and Dirge of Cerberus Lost Episode and the PC release of FF7, ALL Final Fantasy VII related games were released SOLELY on PlayStation platforms: Dirge of Cerberus: PS2 Crisis Core: PSP Also with the movie: Advent Children: Produced by Sony Pictures
Wii U could get it. FFVII was originally a Nintendo 64 game.
I would want it on the Wii U because of the gamepad, which is awesome for RPGs. I also have the PS4, PS3, 360 & XBONE. So, it really doesn't matter to me.
To make it fair (if they have the budget of course) it should be two versions ... one for current gen (PS4 / Xone) and one for last gen (Ps3 / X360 / Wii u)
Automatic downvote for putting Wii U in last gen.
Stop crying ... The Wii u has the hardware of a last gen console
We'd be waiting forever for something that we're never going to get anyway if it's made for so many consoles! I'd rather it be an exclusive so SE can get the most power out of one particular console.
Show me a last gen console that has more than a gig of RAM, GPGPU, DX11 features, Shader Modal 4/5.0 or a modern tesselator.
The gamepad would make the Wii U version the best one IMO. Even thought the graphics will be better on the PS4 & XBONE. The Vita & 3DS would great as well. Square just make it for all the systems and be done with it.
Well seeing as PS consoles are where the biggest FF fans are its only logical it be released on Sony sytems
FF4 & FF6 are better than FF7, FF8 & FF9. IMO
PS4 and Vita, please.
All of them, but if only 1 were possible, then I would say the PC as that would provide the most flexibility and biggest possible audience.
The game's biggest audience would be on PS4.
Last time I checked the JRPG fanbase moved back to Nintendo consoles/handhelds.
Knowing the current Square Enix, it will probably release on IOS and Android.
Don't say that!! It's too close to the truth
"We're pleased to announce FFVII..." "YEEEEEESSSSS!" "...Before Crisis' Western release on Android and iOS! Please be excited!" D:
That's kind of how it went with Parasite Eve The Third Birthday, too. Them: "New Parasite Eve!" Us: "Awwww yyyeeaaaah!" Them: "For cellphones!" Us: "..." Them: "Well, okay, okay, we'll put it on something else instead..." Us: :D Them: "How about PSP!" Us: "...I guess it's better than cellphones." Them: "Directed by Motomu Toriyama!" Us: "Who?" Them: "You'll come to know this name. Ooooh, you will know this name some day...."
What kind of question is that? -.-
All of them, preferably, but ps4 deserves it if its has to be exclusive.
Out of all the systems, I'd say that the PS3 should get it. Not the PS4, the PS3. More people own the PS3 than the PS4 so it would reach more people that way while still staying on its host system. If, however, we're going by which system needs the publicity of such a high-profile game the most, it's gotta be the Wii U. The others already have mountains of hype behind them; the Wii U's hype games don't even have solid release dates, outside of Mario Kart. Having this? Well, it would definitely make the Wii U see headlines for a while.
Why not the PS3 & PS4
And it would be the best version because of the gampad. But I don't see it coming to the Wii U, which is sad!
Lets look at the possibilities: Multiplatform: It'd sell the most on PS4 most likely, less on Xbox One, some on Current gen, and a little on Wii U if they put it on there, Ps4: I see not pint in a PS4 exclusive. The system sells well enough as it is. Excellent multiplatforms AND exclusives. I think it's good for the year. Xbox One: Only 3 exclusives coming, which are Titanfall, Halo 5, and Gears of War. This could help sales. Wii U: It'd cause Bayonetta 2 style rage. While it could help sales, I'd suggest seeing how well Bayonetta 2 even sells before making a 3rd party Wii U exclusive. PS: No. Last gen is over. Xbox 360: No. Last gen is over. Ima have to go with Xbox One or Wii U.
You honestly think a FF game would release on Xbox and not PS?
It originally released on the PS2, plus the PS4 has a bigger install base than both the Xbox One and the Wii U. Why would they alienate the original fan base AND release on systems that don't have as many people on them?
Ha! Didn't even realize I did that. Thanxs!
PS4 and/or PS3 and/or PS Vita.
All formats surely so everyone can enjoy it
I think if it was remade it wouldn't come out till like 2016 so i'd say exclusive to the PS4, it was just so important to the PS1 and helped establish the playstation brand. But of course if it were remade it would likely come out on both PS4 nd X1.
Whichever will sell the most without cannibalizing itself if put on other consoles.... Thats what they care about anyway and it makes no difference to me...
Not gonna lie, I'd buy it.
all systems. the way it should be.
Final Fantasy is PLAYSTATION
Gosh fan boys are ignorant
3DS! Don't mess up the backgrounds. Go back to the original assets and then just run the 3D backgrounds in real time, though with the same static angels. Then redo all of the character models in the same style. Cutscenes however, should look like Advent Children~ This way, the original intended style, charm, and humor of the original game can be kept, while making the game look more appropriate by today's standards.
FFVII = Only on Playstation. Why? So they can focus on 1 version and deliver a great product. They have the people, they have the power of the console. I can't wait for the announcement!
they should do both systems but focus extra hard on ps4. Sony is FFVII's home but i feel that everyone should enjoy the game IMO.
You mean the PS4 & Wii U, right?
@lifeorder Nintendo is just as much of a home to Final Fantasy as Sony. Go home fanboy.
Not sure i would say wait till 15 is out. Bring type o and crisis core hd remake complete to vita. Then lets talk about seven. Im still wanting a new saga and mana 2d sprites only please.
PS4, X1 and PC.
If this were truly going to happen, I would "want" it stay Playstation for nostalgic reasons... but if SquareEnix is putting Kingdom Hearts on the Xbox... it will almost for sure go multi-plat.
