Kotaku: "Adam Boyes, head of third-party developer relations at PlayStation, told me at E3 that he’s known about Square’s Final Fantasy VII remake for a year. It was a fun secret to keep."
I'm quite impressed on how well Sony kept those secrets
With the amount of leaks in gaming these days, and with the sheer hype you get just from rumors of the remake, you would think this would have been all over the net. Maybe they used that to their advantage, but this was the biggest surprise in years.
Even though I was excited and still am, I rather have a steady flow of leaked announcements year round.
Yeh and we were all worried that all of the surprises were spoiled before e3 even started. No one would have honestly ever guessed ff7 remake and shenmue 3 would have been announced. Hoped of course but not actually believed it.
I'm glad they were able to keep the secrets
SE did a good job trolling with the PS4 FF VII PC port ,no one could talk about the real remake without bieng labeled as a troll .
Considering the Sony hack last December, I'm impressed they were able to keep this secret for so long
Shenmue 3 was a big surprise but news of FFVII remake was already leaked before E3. It's just that nobody believed it.
So it was a surprise because none of us believed it?
Reason no one believed it was because it get's "leaked" every year. The leak comes out every year, and there was no way to know if this years report was an actual leak, or someone who happened to be at the right time on the yearly clock. TLG kind of had the same status. Shenmue 3 has been thrown out there for the past few years due to Yu Suzuki discussing the game going to KS. Last year, I believe it was said that MS was going to show it.
What other secrets does this jolly man bare.
