During the PlayStation Experience keynote today, Square Enix came out to announce that Final Fantasy VII will be coming to PS4, and it feels like a bad joke.
Haha yeah, but at least we're getting something (and the rumors were true after all).
Kotaku...wow you guys are S T U P I D. They CLEARLY said that the graphics would be updated. Wow. Just wow. Kotaku idiots have trouble with their hearing.
The updated graphics aren't really all that updated... It's just the PC version's port.
They said the graphics would be upSCALED - not upDATED. Big difference.
"They said the graphics would be upSCALED - not upDATED. Big difference." Really? So years after the release of the 480p and 720p version, you're honestly saying that you're going to get in line for the 1080p version? This when they're about to offer the game for rental not only on iOS, but at a price at what you could buy it for. If anything I wouldn't be surprised that they had the nerve to charge more on the PS4 as PSN.
Updated as in it will be displayed in 1080p. But on the PC, the textures aren't really updated, the models are the same, and the music files are MIDI...if they can at least give us higher quality PSX music files, I would be happy.
I'm marveling at why SE thought it would be good to tease it like that (or even reveal it on the floor at all). Really, I feel like the looks of death from the live audience should have pierced that companies soul.
Well Kotaku will take any chance they can to troll Sony so this is not surprising in the least. It's pathetic really. Regardless Sony always comes out on top smelling like roses.
You mean something different from the PSN version? FFS: they should either be offering it for free, or as part of PS+.
Hey! It's Square we're talking about! I bet a disc release is more probable than a freebie.
i almost threw a chair in excitement and then they showed the trailer :/
If Square made a re-make of FF7 exclusive to Ps4... the gaming world would collapse. To the same effect as the internet "breaking".
And not in the same way Kim Kardashian supposedly broke the internet.
Oh please the vastly superior Ocarina of Time has had its re-release and the internet didnt shake at all.
Ocarina of Time isn't that good. FFVII is leagues better
A re-release with somewhat updated graphics on a handheld... That would have nothing on remaking one of the greatest RPG's of all time on today's hardware.
I said that long before PSX.
Watch Square turn around and say something like "Maybe if the sales are high for this game we'll look into a remake" They say the same thing everytime to try and get people to buy their next FF product.
It's a shame. If Square Enix announced a real Final Fantasy 7 remake exclusive to PS4, even the most hardcore Xbox and Nintendo fans would want one.
The ultimate troll would be if they sold it at £60... i've bought the game twice before (physical and PS1 classic) so if i do buy this it needs to be sub-£20
The best way to experience FFVII these days is on Vita/PSP, it looks fab on a screen that size. As someone who was utterly blown away by the quality, variety and quantity of the games on show at PSX I was very underwhelmed by this announcement as I did think they were unveiling a remake at first, quite disappointing when the video kicked in. I guess it is still cool that you can play it on PS4, even if it is looking quite dated.
Wait so all they did is up the resolution!? Can somebody clarify??
They really didn't do anything with this port... It's just the PC version they released a while back, ported to the PS4. So, yeah it's higher resolution, and that's about it. Their 'announcement' was a waste of time, and a huge letdown.
wow.. talk about milking this game
You could literally hear the heartbreak of nerds across the internet. Today was a hilarious day. Jokes aside, why Sony gave these guys a spot to announce a simple port of a 17 year old game is bizzare. It really does feel like a joke. Im more excited to play Suikoden II than FFVII again. Now, if they truly remade FF6 from the ground up. That would blow my mind to bits.
LOL, SE's Twitter doesn't even mention it. I bet they knew they would feel the heat, if they did.
Still think FFVI is better... :/ Is take an update of that any day of the week over VII.
