The remake for Final Fantasy VII is one of the most hotly-anticipated titles. While Square Enix may not have enough resources to develop it, Sony could step in and help them out.
Yeah cause Square has done so much to help Sony this gen. Really though it could be in both their best intrest to make this happen. It would move lots of software and hardware
The puddle. -_-" They've released so many FF7 related stuff. FF7: Advent Children, Before Crisis, Crisis Core, Dirge of Cerberus, FF7 anime, etc! They know they will make SO much money if they just remake the darn game. It seems like they would rather sloooowly milk the franchise out until people no longer care for it before they FINALLY do the remake. -_-"
Yeah. I couldn't handle that much orgasm at once either XD Also, I'm fairly sure Sony can fund half the game. An FFVII remake would take $30-50 million, the benefit would be *significantly* above that.
Because at least a million of us want it! I think that's a good enough reason.
anticipated? How can something that isnt real be "one of the most hotly-anticipated titles" ?
Why wouldn't they? It's like a license to print money
yup square did help them and sony also help them with final fantasy 7 original so preatty sure they will help them on this game only on REMAKE
But why a remake? Why not a continuation of the story? I was engrossed and immersed in FF7 when it released and enjoyed it immensely and forever will be one of my all time fav RPG's. Is the remake for a younger gaming audience who can't just play the original and not enjoy it if it doesn't look like FF13 graphics wise. If FFX had a sequel why not FF7, I would love to play an entirely new edition to the FF7 universe and not a remake with updated graphics and be like " I've done/experienced this before".
a sequel would be hot only if they got the original scriptwriter(or whatever they are called) to write the story for the sequel. If not that its gonna be like FFX-2 and onward storywise. Edit: oh yeah they did do a squel its called Dirge of Cirburis and it is crap
The original Final Fantasy VII is a classic, many veterans of the game maybe very enraged if too much is changed, which is sometimes needed for the sake of upgrading the over all game. Final Fantasy VII-2 can introduce new ideas, and more refined gameplay, also a conclusion---And answer to where the HELL did Genesis fly off to at the end of Dirge o_o
because square enix isnt loyal enough to sony to do anything themselves
Really lol, Dirge was a PS2 title right? Never got the chance to play it but for a highly beloved title like FF7 they should pull out all stops to create a true sequel that would match or at least surpass the original.
I'm all for a remake, as long as it wouldn't get butchered. I know that the next-gen systems have way more possibilities than the PSone ever did, but FFVII would be best (((In my opinion))) if it was left just as it is for the PSone. Update the CGI scenes, maybe an uncompressed soundtrack, but that's it. I would hate to see SE try and tweak a lot of the game just because they can. Leave it as it is, put it on the shelves, and I guarantee it sells like there's no tomorrow. It would be a wise move IMO for both companies. my 2 cents =)
If Sony did help out in remaking FFVII, one good advantage would be this: It would be a complete exclusive to the PS3. Not only that, many of today's JRPG'ers first got their JRPG fix from FFVII. Remaking FFVII can equal a massive amount of sales.
People still want a FF7 remake? It's time to move on.
Next you will see idiot nerds asking for Ocarina Of Time remake or Soul Calibur 1 remade....it's not needed. Move on.
But those games were either bettered or are available on newer consoles. Soul Calibur 2,3,4. Ocarina of Time is on N64, GC, WII. Final Fantasy 7 as it is doesn't even support analogue sticks and that's if you can afford to shell out £30 for it on ebay.
I bet its already in development and we wont here about it until its about done
Personally I'm not a FF fan and though I think it would sell a lot of software and a fair amount of hardware, I'd say if it happened, it would be a symbolic thing more than anything else.
Why shouldn't Sony help them after they just dropped them and went with M$. guess the money was right but they couldn't pull it off for the PS3. MY guess is they really don't know how to Dev for the PS3 and its hardware. They rather stick with M$ where its much easier to program for. Square Enix should Pay Sony for doing the FF7 remake. Sony should make them sign a contract and 4get the exclusive rights they are just 3rd party and Sony dont care for them much. Well this is what i think should happen cause to me the jump ship when things dont go their way. Sony should let them do the whole thing themselves. Sony showed them how it works and they can take it from their.
I am so torn. I want a remake in a way but I also don't want my favourite game of all time to be ruined by a bunch of monkeys.
Square needs to remake the damn game. Sony needs to ensure that it stays a PS3 exclusive because Square goes where the profit is. Get it done already!
No way! I'd like to see SquareEnix sink really. They have to pay for going the easy route and they'd also make a fine example about what happens to someone deserting Sony. Hear that my fellow Japanese devolopers?
Oooohh the ignorant dark fanboynism its strong on this one.
coming to 360
maybe if M$ throws bags of money at SE
if that were to happen suicide rates would go up.
Change the o in coming to u, then yeah you got it right. Also to your face.
Im all for a FF7 remake my favourite game of all time was FF7 but why does this repetitive topic keep popping up on websites forums etc for the past 4 years? since SquareEnix made that PS3 techdemo people just wont shut up about a FF7 remake. And eventhough Square have no intentions of even announcing a remake people just keep getting their hopes up. I think Square really shot themselves in the foot when they released that techdemo back in 2005 but I for one am getting really tired of reading FF7 remake topics.
This articles should be why they shouldn't help Square-Enix remake FF7. Square-Enix just pushes out mediocre games (handheld games being the exception it seems) so even if they remade FF7 then I am sure they would find some way to ruin the game. I would rather not have a remake unless someone like Level 5 or Atlus could make it.
Here's an idea scrap the FFVII remake(if their is one)and remake FFVI to show all these kids and late comers whitch one really is the best.
Advent Children 3m copies sold Dirge of Cerberus 1.5m copies sold Crisis Core 2m copies sold Final Fantasy 7 10m+ copies sold Series total 16.5m+ copies sold Why Square Enix won't release a proper remake. F*ck knows!
A FF6 remake would be epic.
Would be a better subject for an article. I like that Square moves on, I like that they've tried new ideas, even so with newer FF games. If you want FF7, play FF7. I'd rather have something new. ---- Why can't we stop approving bullshit AssociatedContent? Would be my second point. You may as well submit forum posts, the authors have just as much credentials and expertise.
FFV remake will do for me =)z
They wont do it . Square Enix knows that if they make a remake they run the risk of disappointing all the fans and put them in a bad situation. And I can only assume only Americans (god bless America) would beg for a remake. It's typical that we would ask for a remake. I think it would be cool too but I rather say no remake than seeing the series go down the drain faster than diarrhea
Why should Sony even consider it?! After how much of a sell-out square enix has become in favour of the 360. Sh1t, For all we know, SE probably decided to go multiplatform with the FF7 remake already just for more profit!
they were with nintendo first and they have been riding sony's pole ever since, seriously the square enix 360 rpgs are crap
