Hardcore Gamer: t’s not that an enhanced port of Final Fantasy VII is unwanted, it’s just simply unneeded.
Square needs to either truly remake this game or stop talking about it.
When they showed the FF7 logo at PS Experience, that really was the biggest troll of the year, as far as I'm concerned. Like just a port? Really?
For the fans.. just play the game and then go dream about it. They don't need anymore more projects when they are making the next installment in FFXV.
Complete this game, and you unlock a trailer for a Final Fantasy VII remake suggesting it's in development. Hey, it could happen. Square would certainly gain some kudos.
during their trailer i kept expecting to see the image swap from the old style to a fresh new style. Like the grim fandango trailer. but...nope.
Yeah me too but I was still in disbelief that it was actually true and half way through I knew it wasn't a remake.
Gamers should "Hoodwink", SE by NOT BUYING this.
This game would basically print money for itself if it is made. The demand is there SquareEnix is blind not to see the demand. Also do a FF8 remake and a Xenogears remake.
In my opinion, Final Fantasy 8 is not only the better game, but also the better candidate for a PS4 port.
If I could choose a Square PS1 game to bring to PS4 it would either be Brave Fencer Musashi or Final Fantasy IX, I absolutely love those games to death. I am not against FF8 or Xenogears though, both great games, I would welcome those too
If we are talking FF games then i would vote 9 as well. If we are talking other Square games then Einhander could really benefit from an HD makeover.
Not sure why sony found it fit to present a port like that, at an event they hyped up for months
Serious Question. Was this a hey Sorry about Tomb Raider here's FF7 port from 20 yrs ago? Disagreeing with me does nothing. It was a serious question.
doubtful. I honestly think they are just so out of touch that they honestly didnt consider this an insult. That or they hate money
Thanks for responding. I was out of touch on all this so i was thinking maybe they thought this was something people wanted.
So either Square Enix is completely blind to how their fanbase has been responding to their actions over the last decade, or they actually get a sick kick out of pissing off their fanbase. Either answer is disturbing. I don't even want a FF7 remake, but the way they went about this announcement was just spiteful. If I had been in the crowd I would have been booing. Wasn't FF7 already on PSN on PS3?
Square won't do this until they are financially on their knees begging for a quarter for a cup of coffee...then you can all expect a remake, re-mastered, HD version of FF7. Right now they probably don't want anything to steal the thunder from the upcoming FF 15.
I was laughing pretty hard during the stream when he said it was a PC port, and then I noticed my tears. :(
LMAO right there with ya man. i hate how square hurts me too
Mountains out of mole hills much? Seriously, guess what you CAN'T play on PS4....FF7, why because Sony is anti-backwards compatibility even on all the digital stuff we bought. You know what we CAN play once this is released? FF7. Shut up and for once in your lives be grateful. Square has said multiple times they don't have plans to remake FF7 and that they will consider it when something beats FF7 sales....so guess what, it's not happening get over it. Plus if they do remake it will NOT be the same game as the original and all of you ungrateful children will cry and complain about the differences. So pretend SE is so evil, and sure they have done some silly and stupid things, but the fact you are even overreacting and flipping out is the exact reason why gaming will never be taken seriously in the world. One tiny, insignificant thing happens and you throw a fit. Guess what, FF8 had a tech demo on ps2 as well and yet you don't see people starting riots because that never came to pass. FF6 is far better than 7 and you don't see people crying there hasn't been a 3d remake. Even though I didn't enjoy FF7, I will gladly buy this and replay for the fun of the game and memories as a Final Fantasy fan since the snes day. Hope they bring all the others to the ps4 as well.
That's your opinion but it seems like others just aren't happy. I'm not. I'd rather all the digital stuff in the PS store already be playable on PS4 and not have to buy the same game over again. I'd rather them remake the game like all these people have been asking for. Obviously the want is there. Yes there have been other games, and possibly better games, than FF7 but to many people that ONE game is what defined a generation. It defined the console, defined the genre... That's how I see it. I'd welcome a remake of it myself, and other games too. SquareEnix has not been in my good graces for about 10 years now
Most of us don't mind the re-release. Revealing it at PS experience like they did was a big letdown for me since I expected much more from square enix when I saw Shinji Hashimoto come to the stage. not even a trailer of any other upcoming game (FFXV), just FF7 PC port to PS4.
I may be one of the few people on here actually happy that I'll be able to play FF7 with better visual quality. I play through it every couple years and it looks terrible when playing the digital version on the HDTV, although it's fine on the Vita and PSP. Sure I would have liked a remake in full SE visual quality, but this game is fun. Only thing that I don't like about this announcement is the way it was announced, given that people have been asking for years for a remake, they had to know this would be pretty trolling on their part. I would love for the PS4 to be backwardly compatible with the PS1 games, since I'm sure it's possible through emulation, but it's not, so I stopped worrying about it long before launch. If this had been an actual remake though, then Sony would have killed all momentum that MS is gaining through the holidays as the internet would implode...assuming it was exclusive of course.
You guys are such entitled, spoiled children. The companies are here to make games that will sell more then they cost to make. They don't have to make something for some small fringe vocal minority because you say so.
Is that you Kazuo?! Shut up and make the remake!!
Of course it not. I want FFVIII remake.
There are literally only two possibilities for the FF7 port announcement: 1) They were intentionally being mean-spirited 2) They're morons And, quite frankly, Sony is right there with them for letting them get on stage when they knew what they were going to do.
or 3) Releasing Final Fantasy VII on PS4 is a test for future SquareEnix game that would look similar like the original Final Fantasy VII? Do you, Kalkano, buy Final Fantasy 17 that looks like Final Fantasy VII? Yes/No/Maybe Bravely Default Graphic/FFXV/Suggestion?
It doesn't make sense as a test for anything. It's a port of a 17 year old game, and most fans of the game already own at LEAST one copy. Even if this sold absolutely zero copies, it says NOTHING about interest in a remake or in games like this. There's RABID interest in both, but not much interest in this port.
It makes total sense for those who have never played it, there's about 7,200,000,000 people on Earth and 10,000,000 copies of FF7 sold. Shouldn't you be in the front and foremost introducing FF7, to those who have never played the FF7? Instead you called SquareEnix mean-spirited morons, for spreading Kalkano's Highest Rated Turn-Based JRPG to those who have never played it. Are you against 7,100,000,000 people who never played FF7? Of course not. 4) SquareEnix promoting FF7 to 7,100,000,000 people who have never played FF7 to experience what Turn-Based JRPG FF7 truly is. You could agree at least that.
I have no problem with them releasing this port on PS4. I only have a problem with how they announced it. It may have been unrealistic to expect an FF7 remake before the event took place. It may have been unrealistic to expect an FF7 remake when SquareEnix stepped onto the stage. BUT, the INSTANT that FF7 logo appeared on the screen, it became unrealistic to expect anything OTHER THAN the remake.
i didnt get the feeling that se was trolling to be honest. seems like i was the only person that didnt get pissed of with se. anyway this probably means that psone classics wont be coming anytime soon. also curious about what they are doing with this port. is it the recent pc port? any improvements made? are they going to give us the original psone bg music? if i remember correctly the original pc port had midi files and that was the same for the recent release aswell.
I miss Squaresoft.
:) haha fooled you
