why..... that picture cloud and sepiroth on ps3 game box .... is too much can't think, I WANT IT SO BADLY
If a another FFV11 related game does come out... Do you want a Next gen Remake or a Sequel instead? I dread that Square does a sequel because FFX-2 "suct". These blogs and websites do need to stop the speculations. Grasping for hits is one thing,but to tease and give opinionated evidence is straight cruel to the die hard fans. :(
I want a remastered FF7, first thing. I just want it to be upgraded in modern poly counts and HD textures. Made with Crystal Tools Engine.
Don't get your expectations very high.. It may happen, but it may not. And maybe someday SE announce it, or deny it.
A FFVII "next-gen" remake would provide a vast flow of cash in the direction of Square Enix, and they know it. They know the fanboy and girls want it desperately, and the longer they hold the piece of meat just out of reach, the more people will want and hype it (such as this, yet-another, generic article). I apologize if I sound sour, I love FFVII as much as the next fan, and it holds a very special place in in my heart from my early gaming years, like many of you. Yet, thanks to a chain of back-stabbings fueled by greed, my respect for the once-beloved company has fallen firmly in the s**t. Sure, once the remake comes, I'll be happy to play it (even if it's magically a 360 exclusive, which wouldn't surprise me in the least), but there will always be that little voice in the back of my head telling me to kick myself for ever supporting such a self-righteous company. Phew.. rant over; now where them disagrees?
FF7 can never appear on any other system other than a Playstation because it's the only FF game that Sony ever published so they own the rights to it... but I really hope someday we get a proper Remake on the PS3 , I mean SE built up our hopes with that Tech Demo...and now nothing..since then :(
It does not have to be the exact game have a game starring Denzel and Marlene. Spice it up with playable appearances from everyone from the first game and call it a day.
That just wouldn't work. The whole point of a FFVII remake is to relive everything that was brilliant about the game and that IMO is everything. If they changed such things as the story or the battle system etc then it would ruin the game completely. The only things I would want to see in a remake would be next-gen graphics and possibly voice acting but I wouldn't be bothered either way if I had to read my way through the game.
This is exactly what i posted yesterday. Feel free to hate but it's ture. Anything that gets changed apart from maybe the CGI in cut scenes some will hate and some may love but expect much more hate from die hard FF7 fans. Everyone here says "OMFG I WANT YAY!!!" I bet you 9/10 of these guys who say that they want a remake will moan after the first screens are released because "It doesn't hold true" "The controls changed" "The story isn't perfect" or a million other reasons... We don't need a remake. Just a PSN DL of the original. The Original was great the way it is and any change at all will send gamers crying. i.e. Diablo 3 comes to mind recently... A shoot off of 7. maybe a side story of some kind. good idea. Remake is a bad bad bad idea. Mark my words on that... Edit; I just wanted to add the game really was great for it's time... For it's time. just like Golden eye and doom and Super mario Bros... Now a days if you try and go back it's hard. It's dated. just like cartoons from when you were a kid. it's not the same. Square will have to change things to bring the game up to date and gamers will hate that. They will petition and moan and cry for weeks and fume and threaten to turn their backs and say "It's not right them changing everything". It's historically the way it is. disagree all you want but it's just not a good idea when there is nothing wrong with the old one... FYI I just recently beat it again for the 4th time.... The first time I played it i was living in Russia and all I could find was a jap version. I played it with my thai friend using a walkthrough and didn't know a single thing that was happening the whole time. I loved it then as I do now. I say again a PSN release is all thats needed anything else will cause way too much drama. Edit 2: If you disagree please at least say why. Someone pointed out to me yesterday that a Bionic Commando(BC Rearmed) type remake might be good for those who never got to try it before. I can agree with that but thats not what most gamers want. They want a flashy new everything and when they get a flashy new everything they will most likely hate that it's so different... Can't make them happy. I think this may be why Square haven't said anything yet. That and they are working on New IP's...
Two things. FF7 already came out on non ps platforms when it got a pc release. the pc release was also not published by sony. Secondly, Publishing deals expire. IF a ff7 remake is made you can bet your bottom dollar it will be published by square.
i personally could care less, but i know that a lot of other ps3 fans would sell their soul for it. i dont think it will because square enix is being stupid and biast
1 thing i can say 4 sure is that game hands down would put ps3 ahead of rrod360 in terms of sales
If they ever make a FF7 remake it'll be on both PS3 and Xbox360 best belive it. Since alot of the gamers who used to play the 1st one on the psone have went to Xbox360. Anyways if they want to make most money of a remake they should make it on the NDS or the PSP.
I 'believe" Sony still has publishing rights for. I.E. ANYTHING RELATED TO FINAL FANTASY 7. Unsure if their contract is still valid after all these years, but technically Sony gave money to SquareSOFT to help them out. I think there is still a agreement between the two, because of the interest of the FF7 themed PS3. I believe Ubi also owns the right to the PC aspect, but hey you never know FF7 remake might be playable on PC as well. I highly doubt this will come to the 360, but then again FF13 and that square-enix hates the company that saved their arse in the 1990's. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you. I think before the merger sony owned 19% of Squaresoft, but now owns like 7-9%. Ironically, Sony must still make dividends on ALL Square-enix games. The Sony/Square Deal reference: http://ps2.ign.com/articles...
"Since alot of the gamers who used to play the 1st one on the psone have went to Xbox360" What? Where did you pull that BS from?
if u only have a 360, u won't ever get to play the next generation ff 7. Unlike ff13, Sony owns the publishing right to ff7.
More than half of total sales for Final Fantasy 7 (approx 4 million) are from Japan. So unless it's a fact that the whole world all converted from Playstation to Xbox then your statement is a big pile of bullcrap.
if you subtract the ps3's total install base from the 360 install base (we'll go ahead and assume all those people have both a 360 and a ps3, which isnt the case but just for now), then that leaves about 7-8 million gamers with only a 360. now how many of those you think owned a ps1 and are waiting for ff7, but only have a 360 this gen? answer: A LOT. heck myself included. but if you really want to throw a wrench into the equation, try to think of a ff7 remake possible for WII. SOny fanboys immediately think remake = uber graphics. if squeenix is gonna cash in one a ff7 remake cash cow, you can bet your sweet patooie the wii has the biggest chance of seeing a copy than ps3. heck, i wouldnt put it past squeenix to make it psp only. sony still benefits, but you know.
@v1c1ous You can't compare install bases anymore. How many of them actually own 2 or more consoles? We don't know. Just because it sells more does not mean there's more people in it. It could just be that many of those who suffered a lost console bought a new one. If you're going to compare that, then might as well give it to the wii people. Geez, any comparison with install bases will be hard because we seriously don't know how many people owns 2 or more of the same console. So stop that BS. I'm sure Sony still own some rights to FFVII. And the bigger base in Japan, where the original sold quite well is still Sony's. Sure it would be nice to see it Multiplatform so many fans could still enjoy it, but those 360 only people could buy a PS3 cheaper(than it's current price) 2-3 years down the road. It's not like this game has been announced yet and VS XIII and XIII won't be making out in the States/EU anytime soon.
Not like you need 'em, but s**t man, bubbles for you.
How many do not have a PS3 or 360?
after they see the sales of FFXIII they wont bother making any more games on 360. ps3 verson will outsell it heavily. the 360 version probably wont even reach 1 million, not when theres a ps3 version around anyway.
i dont disagree that the ps3 version will outsell 360, but i dont think the 360 version will do poorly at all. i base this on the fact that japan probably has the biggest market for ff games, and they heavily favor the ps3. but i wouldnt put it past us 360 owners to pick up ff, i just doubt that itll amount to japan sales, because japanese people buy up ff games like hotcakes, while its more of a niche game for us gamers. ill be picking mine up day1 prob, for ps3.
id prefer a really good sequal. i would hate for sqeenix to butcher a classic game. best they risk a sequal (as aluded to i thought at the end of advent children) as even if its an abortion they still wouldnt have ruined the original story...
A Final Fantasy VII remake on the PS3 would be a blessing to gamers everywhere,It would be a shame not to remake one of the best games of all time on a next-gen console.
Why don't we leave the classics classic? Why not just port FF7 over to XBLA and PSN.
Because this is Square Enix.
First off, ff7 on the xbl is impossible since Sony owns the publishing right to that title. While I want to see SE making new IP, I also want to see what a next generation ff 7 that utilizes the power of ps3 will be like.
We have no idea if Sony owns the publishing rights. Did they publish the PC version? No. You claim Mass Effect is going to the PS3 even though MS published it on the 360 but not the PC version. Sony published the PS version but not the PC version so if Mass Effect can supposedly go to the PS3 then then FF7 can go to the 360.
Sorry to shatter your dream but EA now owns the publishing right to Mass Effect.
This running on the crystal engine would be nice
I think FF 7 is the emergency plan for SE for the moment they screw everything and there is no way to get back, and it might be Multiplataform 360/ps3/wii hahahaha!!!!
sony owns publishing rights it will only be on a playstation console
It will happen. Also, it will also have to be updated to blend in better with the newer releases, story wise. The one major thing they have to do is incorporate Genesis somehow, since he's a major player. They can even do the slightest of hinting to him, like in Dirge of Cerberus, but it must be done. After the remake, I surely believe that they will finish the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII with either a sequel or another CG movie. I'm betting on a sequel. Edit: Why a disagree? It's the truth. To keep continuity between the games, Genesis has to be mentioned even in the most smallest conversation. They already screwed up the normal storyline when they involved him in the Nibelheim Incident with the Mako Reactor. They can't just graphically update this game. They have to take the original, add to it, and polish the crap out of it. Make sure everything makes sense.
Well, seems like opinion is not liked. -_- Sheesh. Can I just say that I can't wait for it and redeem myself? Though don't be surprised when what I say happens.
If people want it enough I don't see a reason not to make it. Obviously, the demand for FFVII is there. Petition? Hasn't worked unfortunately. I believe Square Enix has their hands full enough with 13 and 13 versus.
Square isn't smart enough to remake it. They will remake other ff but not the ones that were on ps1.
I agree totally, remake FF7 and make sure it it's actually good this time.
... FIX THE STORY so it makes sense!!!
isn't there a trailer on PSN for final fantasy 7.. idk i remember downloading one... but i never payed close attention to FF series so it might have been like a spin off of 7... though i know it had FF 7 in the title...
Are you referring to the tech demo from E3 2005? If so, that's just what it is.
I don't want a remake. That's all Square has been doing for the past 5 years... they will ruin FFVII with a sh*tty remake.
It's basically like when you give crack heads a quality crack product, once they reach that high and know wat it's like, you aren't gonna fool them with a weak product and retain them. So basically FF7 is best thing they ever put out, and worrid it will conflict with their new FF series sales, come on guys yu've got people shelling out over $100 for a FF7 game, why do yu think yu havn't seen it on psn yet, it's business as usual.
Why would there be one anyway ? A new FF is always 1000x more exiting than something i have played 3 times already
I really hope this happens but I cannot see it :( One can dream though cant they! I agree that if they where to re-release 7 it would be reasonable to expect a multiplatform release. This is because 13 is coming to the 360 as well ^^ I would love to see 13 on the PC as well as I prefer playing RPGs there :D
Its ganna be a kick ass games!!
'm personally on the fence about a remake. There are just to many things that could go wrong in terms of Story, Gameplay etc. I'm especially worried about the storyline, as there have been so many spin-offs ( Genisus from Crisis Core springs to mind.) If they did remake this epic classic then they wwould have to do it with the ut-most care. If they change the combat system then give us an option to use the old. Don't touch the story at all. If voice acting is included give us a Japanese option or after completing the game once, giving the option to use the word bubbles. Keep any new characters as strictly unlockable bonus characters only. Keep all the old non-game breaking glitches i.e the W-Item glitch. A remake is ok if you can do it right but as of late I don't trust Square-Enix's integrity.
I want them to keep the game play and story the exact same but take the game apart and re build it from the ground up. And hopefully Nobuo Uematsu adds a few extra tunes to it if Square does remake this.
People, Sony owns the rights to any and all things FF7 related, you will not see a remake on the Wii or 360. With that being said, if it is a remake I hope they dont change a thing gameplay or story wise. Maybe a bit more side quests just to spice things up. I think that if it is a sequel it would sell just as much as a remake, heck, i'd be buying both if they ever hit
If there is to be a remake of ff7 chances are it could be done for psn/xbla much the same way as sf2hd was done. Take a great game and give it a fresh new look with hd textures and better lighting. I recently dl r-types from psn to play on ps3/psp and just the other day there was an hd version for xbla called r-type dimension. I like what they did to spice it up a bit. Maybe square would make a ff7 for ds like they have been remaking the earlier ones? Why does this game only have to be on ps? If you have the original then you can play it on ps3. Square is all about money just like other companies. I am betting there will be some announcement about it at E3.
This game will come out. Square Enix said themeselves that the PS1 didn't have the graphical power for their vision.
