Final Fantasy VII is coming to PS4, and although it isn't the shiny remake many of us would have wanted, it's still an incredibly tempting offer.
No I wont buy it. As they say. "Dont feed the troll". And square Enix is a troll. The image i attached perfectly describes Square Enix
Troll Enix also that image is terrible lol
I'm going to feed the troll because I have yet to play the game.
@ThunderPulse: In that case, you're excused. ;) Enjoy.
Really. This port was a terrible idea, and a slap in the face of those players who have been holding out the vain hope that one day Square Enix might actually listen to what the customer wants.
Wow your going to choke a lot of women that way lol. But back to the topic I think I might buy it. I want to know what the big deal is with this game since I never played it on my PS1 back in the day. The Legend of Dragoon, MediEvil, Twisted Metal, and Ape Escape were my favorites on PS1.
Since you never played it you more likely won't have the same nostalgic feel like me and others. There was nothing like it at the time. For you its nothing new and graphics will be bad.
Its a great game for its time but graphics, sound, movement, animation, games speed, the way you have to read a big novel and camera angles are way too outdated and replaying the game like that today just destroys its heritage to gamers. I bought the game on PS3 for 10 euros and played it for 10 minutes before never playing it again. Just give us a remake already SE.
Speak for yourself :) I just finished it the other day, a beautiful game, even graphics are great, you get used to it, there is no such thingas outdated mechanics so its still a great experience
@ultr But is it the best game you ever played? I bet not. I think its pretty rare these days to have someone say FF7 is there favorite game ever if they play it now for the first time. Makes me wonder when these new generation kids playing video games What will be the top 100 games ever played articles be like. Wouldn't be surprised FF7 makes it off the list.
They're prolly gauging interest for the ff7 remake. So don't buy it. 5 years ago I'd have said buy it.... but do you really want SE, in their current creative mindset, to remake ff7?
Thats a pretty good point. Could you imagine if they remade it and gave it those terrible "real time turn based" mechanics that they switched to starting with FF12? Man, it would be a dark day in gaming.
I dont buy the whole gauging interest scenario. They are already full aware how much interest there is in a FF7 Remake. They're using said interest to milk cash without having to put in hardly any work to port this over.
Honestly, they should just give it for free to plus members.
Yeah, this article is basically the reason companies get away with this stuff. 4rth time SquareEnix pulled this on fans.
I already own it on my PSP, Vita, PS3 and two copies for PS1. PS4 version is a skip for me.
Dem trophies though?!
Its not always about the trophies gameplay, story, characters, music is what makes a video game fun to play. Not achievement or trophies. And besides everybody knows when you download FF7 from the PSN it does not have trophy support. I could careless about trophies the story and gameplay is what draws me to a videogame. If I would have cared about trophies I would be a trophy whore and played Hannah Montana for PS3 wich I will not play.
Why do we have to buy this again if we bought it on the PS3...is it actually the PC Port with up scaled graphics. God, we better not have to rebuy our PS1 games...all of them should of moved straight onto the PS4 and they should be adding onto them, by that I mean every single PS1/PS2 game that released. I really need Bugs Bunny Lost in Time and Sheep Raider.
well it sounds like it might have trophy support, so it woul dbe more than just a port over. If not, yea that would be complete BS, and this should be no more than $10, I would even argue, $7.99
Ahhh right, didn't think about trophy support Still if not then I don't see why people who bought it on the PS3 have to buy it again If something has been bought on your account then it should move onto the next gen system, it's the same game so as long as it's not different you still bought it. It's why I don't believe in an all digital future. As I've said they should be adding onto the PS1 classics, not for us to wait until they add ones we've already bought. If each gen resets all that work and progress which went into getting them out whats the point...I mean really. It took Europe years and I mean YEARS to get bloody Spyro the Dragon we better not have to wait years again. I know they are probably waiting for the PS Now but I'd rather just download them instead of streaming.
I would rather have to rebuy all of our PS1 games than not get a chance at all to own them on PS4 which is what I am suspecting to happen with PS Now and no talk of emulation being done on PS4.
Why do I need to? I owned it on ps1,ps3,psp, & pc. I think they got enough from me and I'll be dammed if I give them another penny for it again.
I already own it on PSOne. If they aren't making any real changes to it, I wont be buying it again.
This, I still have my original copy in good condition and is one of about 30 reasons why I still have my ps2 under my tv.
Works also on ps3 ^^
I WANT A SEQUEL!!!
There is nothing to "sequel". Clean up the ending so that you know what happened to everyone except Red13, but that's it. Always thought that everyone had a reunion at the Gold Saucer a few years later and that Cloud and Tifa came in last carrying a baby who's eyes looked like and mimicked Aeris's from the beginning of the game to show she's been reborn.
Actually your wrong. If you play Dirge of Cerberus if you collected all secret files you get the special ending where Genesis is resurrected. So the sequel would be about that. But I would like it if they made a remake with ff7-2 on top of it instead. One full game that continues the story. That will never happen but I can dream^^
@Godmars290 You might of not heard of advent children FFVII Movie and Dirge of Cerberus...?
"You might of not heard of advent children FFVII Movie and Dirge of Cerberus...?" Which were made how long after the actual FF7? Wasn't Dirge made around FF10, after the Enix merger, and when they started going to sh*t with convoluted side stories? FF7 should have been the *Final* grand *Fantasy* of its world. Hence the name of the FFS franchise.
I disagree because we would of never Got Crisis Core which is a very good game. It also introduces Genesis in the game.
Or watch the CGI movie Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children. Which was a sequel.
I should not, and probably will not. Not one of my favorites from the franchise to begin with, but I do own it both digitally and physically for use on all my other PlayStation devices. No need to get it again. I won't lie: I'm not the biggest fan of VII and don't even want a remake, but even I had a little bit of hype building up before they showed it was just a port. It would have been massive news, but I guess I can't expect that Square Enix really knows what they're doing anymore. Granted, I can understand the behemoth undertaking a remake would be, but if you're not gonna do one, don't troll your fans.
FF7 and FF Tactics I've bought many times. That is of course, until technology helped me make my own backups! That's where I won't ever argue against roms and emulation. No reason to have to buy the same game multiple times. These companies just want us to double dip and I think that's stupid. Considering how much I actually like this game though, depending on the price, I might consider it. That's a big "might" btw Edit: since it's SE though, I wouldn't be surprised they charge $20
True, I bought FF7 when it originally came out. I shouldn't have to buy it again and again.
if they did a reasonable pc port and cleaned it up i will buy it.its a good game with a meaningful story .we should be thinking about the game rather then the politics around why they dont wanna make a remake
Statement from SE: "Buy it or else were going to make 13-3 and Lightning Returns 2!"
Bought FFVIII a year or two ago on PSN, but not VII. Shameless as this is on Square Enix's part, I haven't played the game in at least a decade. I have no shame about buying it.
No thinks. Pretty much done with Square.
Still playing on my PSP. The jump to PC did not make any significant improvements in my eyes, at least not any that would make for a different or more pleasurable experience, so I don't think this warrants a 3rd purchase for me.
YOu'll all buy it!! ha ha got ya money chummmmmmmmmmPAHSSzzz!!!!
I have the original on PS1 and this port on Steam. Why should I xD
If its like $5-10 with trophy support I'll pick it up
A PS1 classic is fine, but I really don't understand why Sony gave them stage time. Square Enix has stated that they heard the outcries for a Final Fantasy 7 HD remake. Even when FFX and FFX-2 HD was announced, people had hope again. And now this? If you take it from me (which I'm sure nobody will) we should boycot any and all Square Enix games. Final Fantasy 7 PS4, FF15, FF14, Dead Island 2, Murdered, Tomb Raider and any upcoming games. Let them know what we want and how fed up we are with this shit. Ofcourse, won't happen.
I have it on Vita already, but I'll do it for $5-10.
Only if it has a platinum trophy.
Good for you Mr. ´I wrote an article about one of the biggest topics to come out of the PSX and titled it so it would cause the biggest reaction´. It was a troll move by Square, and I won't feed it.
Like many of you stated above, I think it is a slap in the face. They probably think all RPG fans are dumb, that we'd just buy it because it has SE and FF' name on it. As we all know, SE is no longer the company we know and loved. They focus has shift from making quality games to how to milk the series and make money anyway they can. The game is already available to download on PSN and I've purchased it too. Why would anyone else spend money on the game again? I'm still not happy that I'm unable to download/play the games I purchased on PS3. No, I will not buy the re-release FFVII.
I agree. All digital titles should be playable on PS4 if bought on PS3. They need to be more like Steam here. Nobody wants to buy and re buy and buy again. Because of this very reason, I haven't bought anything digital on PS4 yet
Why whould I ? I still have a working original ps copy...
Troll Enix can go fu## themself's
No way, i already have the game, it's not possible that Troll Enix don't know that everyone wants a remake. That's just laziness.
Why would I spend my hard earn money feeding a troll? I wish I was at the PSX experience, I would of booed his ass off the stage.
Lol that's exactly my thought when I saw the video.
If I want to enjoy the game I will enjoy it the previous times I have bought the game. I do not need it for my PS4, if others do then they are more than welcomed to. Square trolling it their lamest. Here is a FF game that is arguable held as the best in the series for many, lets kind of get people worked up by not do a remake fans have been asking for, but instead give the same version. Personally I don't care for a remake, but just that way Square acts being fully aware what their fans want but generally ignoring them. Square does what Square does.
I honestly probably would not pick this game up again, barring a complete from the ground up remaster (or even reboot considering how silly some of the game would be, if it were presented as is, just with a graphical face lift). An actual sequel? sure, but not sure how that would go (it all seems pretty final and well concluded to me). I still have the original 4-disc version, and a digital copy on the Vita.
I wont. Im re beating it on my original PlayStation on my LED tv with component cables. Still looks awesome! No need for this stupid enhanced lighting or whatever b.s.
I played FF7 for PS1 and even though is a great game I don't plan to play it again
I will because unlike most of the internet and FF7 fanboys, I'm just glad I can play it again on my new system and hope I can get all the other ones too.
...Get that FF7 glorious platinum bro.
Eh I couldn't give two craps about pointless trophies. Shame how all the FF7 fanboys that have declared they would give a limb for anything FF7 are now acting like a spoiled brat. I've seen 2 year olds act better when they don't get something they want.
Even if I cared, I would just whip out my PS copy. So should I my ***.
id hate to financially support those assholes again, but i would like an updated vita version ALOT...
All of these "won't buy it, screw Square Enix" stuff is hilarious, you and I will buy it, Final Fantasy 7 with trophies? you'd have to be mental to pass it up.
Is Square Enix balls deep in you? I'd think the rest of us have better things to do with our money than support that shit shack of a company.
NO, you really shouldn't...
No, I won't.
If u got a PS4 and you're a fan then buy it, don't go buy a PS4 just to play a game. NO GAME IS WORTH spending $400. If you think it is then all you're doing feeding the whole exclusivity BS war. Just download it and play it on an emulator for PC.
