What could Square-Enix's FFVII-related announcement be? PSXE thinks it's going to be a sequel to the legendary RPG, just because it's the best bet for both gamers AND the publisher.
Then it's definitely this one. Square wouldn't hesitate to make this on 360 as well.
This game alone will sell millions of ps3s
Final Fantasy VII was published by Sony. http://psx.ign.com/objects/...
That wouldn't have an effect on the sequel. Only a remake.
True, Sony published FF7, but it doesn't necessarily mean they'll publish a sequel. Square might leave the publishing up to the highest bidder. Now it'd be different if they owned the FF7 brand. That I do not know.
Sony is really pissing me off though, when it comes to the rpg department. I don't know wtf they are doing. They let all the good rpgs end up for the 360. I mean come on i know last remamnent and star ocean are time exclusive, but still man they should do something about the lack of rpgs for the ps3. I don't mind it going to the 360 but at least make sure it comes out for the ps3 also.
Final fantasy VII for the pc was published by Eidos. the playstation version was published by square in Japan, as was the international version. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... Edit: http://www.gamefaqs.com/con... http://www.gamespot.com/ps/... For the non believers
A sequel would be stupid. Everyone wants a remake, not a sequel. A sequel would just ruin FFVII. Edit: Wikipedia is not a reliable source. I could easily go in there and edit most of that information myself right now. Check the IGN link. Sony published the console version. If FFVII were ever to be remade for consoles it would be exclusive to PS3, published by Sony. We aren't talking about the failed PC port, we're talking about the console version. Try harder Ogrekiller. Using Wikipedia as your source only shows me how clueless you really are.
Any kinda of confimred FFVII related news would be greatly appreciated by now in any case
Point taken. Here you go then. http://www.gamefaqs.com/con... http://www.gamespot.com/ps/... And that's a big claim you made there. Who died and made you prez of Square Enix?
and yet EIDOS made a version for PC as well, must have ben a timed thing case i still have my old pc version some ware in my house and sony isn't on it.
And your point is? Square Enix owns the IP. If a FFVII remake or sequel is in development you can bet it will be multi-platform. They've proven time and time again that they have no loyalty to one specific company. Not sure why some think the next big game they come out with will be PS3 exclusive. It isn't going to happen.
Whether that's because of lack of interest or simply lack of quality is up in the air, but you can't blame them for making what sells. The genre definitely needs a reboot though.
this is why they aren't doing a remake; because either it's going to the Wii/DS or it will be Multi (PS3/360) at best. Sony published FFVII so they "own" FFVII and it's remakes. One guys opinion. EDIT : apparently sony didn't publish FFVII. hmmm...
I rather it be a sequel. I mean.....FFVII was good and all, but then we all know how the story goes, so.....it can get boring. For a remake, I rather see FFVI, it's one of the best and I think it deserves a decent remake.
You say "Square wouldn't hesitate to bring this to 360" but as i recall they said recently and i quote, "With Final Fantasy XIII, we swung the ball in Microsoft's direction. Very soon we will be swinging it back in Sony's direction." This goes in conjunction with other quotes saying, "Very soon there will be a huge announcement that will shock FF7 fans". FF7 isn't just another Final Fantasy, it's very special to the people who made the original. I personally believe this game has as strong a bond with PlayStation as Metal Gear Solid does, and i don't think we will be seeing this one come to the xbox 360.
Or is it wishful thinking?...
I don't own Square-Enix. What i said can be nothing but wishful thinking. I could never say it will never come to 360 because look at FF13. But then again look at MGS4. Still hasn't gone to 360. I like to think there are people in the gaming industry like Hideo Kojima who still have a little loyalty to platforms that made there visions and aspirations a reality. Not only that, but Kojima chose PS3 exclusivity for the main reason being it was the console most capable of achieving his ambitions. PS3 can make a better quality game then 360. And when developers are true to their projects then money isn't what sways the decision. Thats why FF13 was initially ps3 exclusive because ps3 was the best choice for the job. They only went to 360 for the money. And like i said, Square-Enix said, "we will be swinging the ball back in Sony's direction." Unlike others, i still feel Square has a level of loyalty with Sony. They didn't completely dump them like they did Nintendo. In fact Square's best projects are for ps3, or ps3-lead. I know you couldn't care less what happens kewlkat, but unlike you i'm a playstation fan throughout. And Final Fantasy VII is my all-time favourite game. I personally hope Final Fantasy VII never comes on xbox 360. My view
FFVII sequel will make a lot of gammers happy an take off alot of rumors on boards! FF7 will live in a lot of gammers hearts an forever will! Sorta sad Suikoden II didnt get all this publicity i think it deserves a little recognition!
Yep, I agree. And Dark vader, I'm a little pissed as well with Sony but then again, can you imagine what would happen if they went into a bidding war with Microsoft? Microsoft would offer one price for the game, Sony will offer another...it'll keep going on and on until we won't even get to play the game. I think that's why Sony is focusing all their resources on 1st party.
I haven't played final fantasy since it didn't have a number on the end. I don't really like rpg's(although I did as a kid). But I would get this remake on the critical acclaim alone. If so many gamers love it it has to be a great game, and I'll stake $60 on it.
Why? Cause in Japan it would still be PS3 exclusive, just like FFXIII (That's where the console war effect would be), and XBOX players as always wouldn't buy the RPG. I think after the FFXIII release, Square is going to have to rethink their "western expansion." RPGs don't sell worth a squat on the 360 and we've seen that with Eternal Sonata (incredible game). I think FFVII would be the same way, but if the 360 gamers get it to play it, then we all win out here cause we all get to play a great game! I'd rather know that they're going all out optimizing the production for the PS3 for this, but I doubt it. I've lost all faith in Square for that. Whatever they do, just make it good!
who eva thourght it would be any different after they said a new final fantasy 7 game is coming and then stated it wasn't a remake...?
Greatest game I personally EXPERIENCED,yes,EXPERIENCED,no t PLAYED,because it was so musch bigger than that for me. FF7 Rebirth Believe. We will soon harness the powers of Nanaki and his sons and daughters again and travel through Cosmo Canyon to heal the Lifestream of Gaiai. Believe my fellow comrades,BELIEVE.
hahah. i just bought FFVII + Strat Guide for $100 and playing it now. i really hope for a remake instead of a sequel. we'll find out this year though. this year for sure.
Because hardcore fan boys of FFVII (even though I am one myself) would NOT accept any changes (although I would). Buttttt, it's a simple fact that FFVII was a PS1 game, and to translate it to a monster machine like PS3, there would be more changes than just graphics. With FFVII-2 you will finally get a conclusion to the series, it can potentially be far more bigger than a remake of the original game. So, my Prediction: FFVII-2 ftw, FFVII-HD Remix on PSN.
That's why they would need the original team to do the remake. Any changes they make will probably just make the game better.
ff7 and phantasy star for the sega master system i want an remake bu the only thing i want changed is the visuals and some voice work i love the combat system of the first so to change that would be dissapointing to me
Whatever it is, I hope it doesn't suck like Advent Children or Dirge of Cerberus. I'm guessing it's the sequel to Dirge of Cerberus. The secret ending left the possibility for a sequel.
yup, the secret ending of Dirge of cerberus says it all.....well, Crisis Core helps, but there is a story put in place with DoC's ending, FF7-2 was more or less set in stone a couple years ago.
There's still somebody around that could cause some issues...
Somebody want to PM me this ending?
Here's the secret ending for dirge of cerberus. It starts at :50. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Another sequel?No thank you.But knowing Square Enix and their recent increasing hunger for money,who knows?
DoC may have been garbage but Crisis Core (prequel, not seque...I know) was an awesome game. If they can do something like that, I'd be happy.
The movie... well that's a sequel, but not a game. Crisis core is a prequel, and DoC was a spin-off.... so uh, this is kinda like the first sequel.
BELIEVE. Today I am nineteen and I am in a trance. People join me in this temporary moment of madness and pray for the homecoming of the Great One. Midgar here we come again. Emerald Weapon,I will have my revenge.
You said you were in a trance, were not talking about FFIX here.
I didn't see that coming. Really cool. Deserves a bubble. I'm in overdrive mode.Probably going to unleash some Limit break soon. I'll go with Omnislash. Believe.
Yeah, but overdrive is FFX, limit break is right though.
I'm just mixing all of them. Hum,maybe I should use Mist abilities too and unleash 29 hit combos.
Yeah and I'll summon some Eidions(or whatever there called) God Final Fantasy is confusing.
They are called Aeons. Magus Sisters,Anima or even better:Knights of the Round?
Aeon's was FFX, Eidions was FFIX, Guardian Forces was FFVIII, and Espers was FFXII, don't remember what FFVII was. EDIT Oh yeah, its was so long ago, and why can FF be simpler?
They were simply called Summons. FF 9 was Eidolons,but ever since FF7 I only called them Summons.It's easier to remember.
what did i say FFVII- 2 sounds like FFX-2(what a peice of junk that was.)
If there ever is a FFXII-2, it would definantly be interesting to see which system Square would develop it for. Personally I think that FFXII-2 could be a PS3 exclusive because the original title was released on the PS2, but there's no telling. SquareEnix is keeping Final Fantasy Versus XIII a PS3 exclusive, and that's why I think FFXII-2 has chance of being a PS3 exclusive as well.
This is about FFVII (7) Not FFXII (12)
...SE. It's a money and numbers game with them and they only have loyalty to money. I don't trust them to swing anything into Sonys favor except a hearty double handed backhand pimp slap to the fifth power. All you gamers out there that can afford a 360 should pick one up this holiday season just in case. FF is SE's whore and they've been asking that b*tch for their money for a long time and will continue to have that ass on the track making that paper. (For all my non-street savvy N4G peers) - Final Fantasy is Square Enix's whore and they want her on the street with as many people as possible (on the track) making as much money as possible (making that paper). 360 has more people in a some markets so SE is going to have their whore in all the places where the sausages swing.
A remake will be great! Can't wait to play it on the 360! @below: oh, well I'd rather have the remake.
A remake won't happen on the 360, but a sequel is possible.
It won't come to the crapbox 360 for sure. It's like feeding fine steak to a bunch of pigs, not going to happen.
Read the title before bashing me... but don't be so sure. I think it's very possible that FFVII (if it is ever remade) to make it to the xbox 360. SE has shown they don't give two craps about exclusivity. And if you want to pull the 'Sony is the publisher' card, go read the comments in the Gamer Section.
There will be a sequel. Will it be announced this weekend? Maybe. All I know that they're going to be showcasing that Advent Children Complete on Blu-Ray, and I guess something could lead from there. The secret ending to Dirge of Cerberus will no doubt lead into a sequel involving Genesis. If not him, maybe it'll just be another X-2 instead with Tifa and Yuffie. Also, would be sweet to have a PSN release for FFVII. Would love to have it on the go, and since I don't wanna go though the trouble of hacking my PSP, downloading it off PSN will be the next best thing.
You know, I've been saying it since the end of DoC and obviously the plotline of Crisis Core did nothing but reenforce this, but GENESIS is the next in line to put down by Cloud and company. THAT'S FFVII-2 if Square makes it. Too bad 99% of 360 gamers have no idea who that is...
I never understood why they didn't make a sequel. Even frigging X got a sequel. And it blew.
Total win. I'd pay $130 for that! The extra $10, they can use for like Fast food or something as a treat.
yeah both on the same blu-ray disc :) you can play the remake and then continue to the sequel without even having to change a disc.
the Gackt ending in DoC left it open for a spin-off/sequel
Genisis is the new Sephiroth.
I shall have you horsewhipped for such blaspehmy....
I totally agree with you. Sephiroth is the ultimate villian for the FFVII series.... However, with reference to the story so far... it looks like the square is gonna use Genisis this time round. Or am i talking rubbish? 0_o
While I do admit I hit disagree with you initially, I only did so because I originally thought you were saying that Genisis was "Oh yeah, baby, new Sephiroth!" As in the new ultimate villain. You aren't talking rubbish and that's what's annoying to me. Square will more than likely make Gensisis the new antagonist. And that sucks. As does he.
In no way would I favour genesis over sephiroth. After FFVII:CC Genesis left me with a bad taste in my mouth… and it wasn’t those Banora Whites :p Hopefully, Square will resist using this character solely and get good old Sephi into the mix… That’s if they are even considering a squeal.
You meant to say sequel, but 'squeal' is a good play on words (if they do bring Sephiroth back at least). Also, Nice on the Banora whites reference, haha! I feel the same way. Genesis left me feeling dirty for FFVII. Especially the cheesy, B horror movie way that they left him up for a sequel without truly announcing it. After 235 "The gift of the goddess"s I was sick and tired of his flamboyant as$
How did I miss that one (I wont edit it). I agree with the whole flamboyancy… I found myself shouting at the PSP, “Shut up you infuriating freak and make some sense!” Please Square give up on Genesis’s obsession with Loveless if you bring him back. It didn’t build on his character too well… Just made me mad and slightly bored.
Haha I was just teasing you with the squeal, cause it fit in some stretch of the imagination. It was good having this back and forth with you, bubbles for being good entertainment! Take care and hope to see you on the next FFVII article!
You Deserve more BUBBLES. *clicks on the Green Plus sign*
I WANT TO BELIEVE.
A remake would be awsome. Yet at this point I'm sick of clammering for it and I'm sick of the media pumpin it up only for SE to shoot it down. I'm even getting sick of SE. Their talking all this crap about Multi Plat and being even and fair for both platforms. Yet the 360 gets Last Remnant and Star Ocean4 and FFXIII which SE "happily" announced. Meanwhile PS3 owners outside of Japan have to wait for FFXIII til the 360 version is complete before we ALL get to play it. Yet 360 owners will be playing Last Remant and Star Ocean4 which SE still hasnt announced for the PS3 but were more than willing to announce FF13 for the 360? I dunno whats going on with SE but its starting to piss me off. ALOT! Perhaps SE is trying to test the waters of the 360 and thats all good but atleast put Microsofts big money where your mouth and let it be known. I feel like SE is TRYING to play its PS fanbase for suckers and I'm tired of it. Ofcourse I will be willing to forgive them if they ACTUALLY do realease a FF7 remake for PS3 :P
