Five things Sony needs to do? Really? Really?!
SE are making the game. If you can't even get the basics right you really have no business here.

StinkiWan1151d ago

I don't disagree, but insofar as Sony can comment on and influence Square's dev cycle, the statement's not entirely asinine. Look beyond the headline and the five points are interesting.

Magicite1151d ago

Only thing Sony must do, is keep it console exclusive.

Gority1151d ago

I hope it comes out on PC and X1 as well. Don't get me wrong, I'm going to play it on my PS4, I just want SE to see that giving us what we ask for is good for business.

I dont see this staying a PS4 exclusive in the long term. If you look back at S-E track record with Final fantasy XIII ( which was first announced as a PS3 exclusive) everything that came out after this game went multiplatform .

FF VII is probably a Timed exclusive at best just like the new tomb raider.

MasterCornholio1150d ago (Edited 1150d ago )


Not exactly. Sony does own the publishing rights for the game in the EU and North America while Square owns the rights for Japan.

I honestly don't see Square releasing the game in XB1 in Japan.

I'm assuming that the agreement over the IP is still valid because the PC version didn't even come to the X1 but its coming to the PS4.

I might be wrong but so far Final fantasy X remake have not come to the Xbox one. It seems like this might be the case with FF7.

People are gonna hate the remake no matter what, if it stays the same people will be like "this was supposed to be a remake not a remaster", and if it does anything different people will be like "this was supposed to be a remake not a re-imagining", Square Enix can't win and they know it, so they're just gonna do whatever the f*ck they want with it.

jmrallen1151d ago

Interesting point, and so true!

kalkano1151d ago

More people will buy it if they don't turn it into an ARPG. That's what most people are afraid of: that they'll insert their crappy new gameplay, when we were trying to get them back to the gameplay that we loved.

Quickstrike1151d ago

I keep saying a petition needs to start now so we get the game we want and the game SE needs to make the a roaring success.

FF should not be an action RPG at all and that's something that FF VII needs to avoid being.

DaddyPoppa1151d ago (Edited 1151d ago )

lmao kalkano i see on you gamefaqs and n4g spouting the same nonsense every day and you still think more people want it turned based? As it stands right now its pretty much dead even give or take, and the fact that its even debatable should be scary for the people that want to keep the game turn based.

Square has all the support they need to make it a successful APRG game whether you want to believe it or not. Alot of fans will embrace and enjoy the change.

kalkano1151d ago

It should be scary for SquareEnix. And, the only one spouting nonsense here is you.

Kurisu1151d ago (Edited 1151d ago )

I'm going to accept it for what it is. I wanted a remake, I'm getting a remake. Sure it might have some big changes in terms of gameplay etc but I don't think there's a chance of them meddling with the story. I'm so hyped for this game it's unreal! Can't wait for more information some time in Winter.

PlayableGamez1151d ago

Hmm from what I remember isn't Square making the game not Sony?

antikbaka1151d ago

there are no reasonable things in the world to make anything exclusive for only one group of people - everything should be accessible for everyone who wishes so

Gardenia1151d ago

Except for 5 I agree with all of them. I think there will a lot of pressure on the developers to make this game as close as possible to the original while also changing things for today's standards
