As it turns out, Square Enix's countdown website has absolutely nothing to do with a Final Fantasy VII remake, but with the company's card-based arcade strategy RPG, Lord of Vermilion.
Figures...kinda hope they never remake FFVII. It looks great the way it is now
Wow couldnt disagree more. I NEED a FFVII remake that looks as good as the new FF games. Would be amazing. Its hard to always tell what is going on with the block hands and mouth less faces.
i mean the looks would obviously change, because i'm sure they'd want to make it fit in more with Advent Children's colourless looks, which would be awful IMO. I loved the vibrant look of the FFVII world. another thing that would worry me is the new "expanded universe". with Crisis Core / Before Crisis / Dirge of Cerberus / Advent Children all out, they would no doubt be looking to ret-con the story to make it tie in more with the other media. although i like the other games, i do find it makes the storyline harder to follow, with so much going on. Plus voice acting? not for me thanks. Plus if they announced a FFVII remake before they get XIII, Versus, Agito, XIV Online and god knows what else, out, i think there'd be some sort of "what-the-f*ck-is-going-o n" backlash.
I dunno. I wasn't on the FF7 train the first time around, and when I made a serious effort to sit down and play it, the visuals were a huge turn-off. The game was released during that era of early 3D graphics with hard, aliased edges on everything, all made out of obviously very few polygons and little to no texture detail/shading/lighting/etc... with rigid animation. I think FF7 looks pretty terrible. Aside from that, the battle system wasn't one of my favorites, and could use a bit of tweaking. I think a remake of this game would be great, in a wtf-is-the-big-deal sort of way. I was having such little fun playing FF7 that I quit, downloaded the game's script, and read it instead. Yes, I READ a videogame... I READ Final Fantasy VII.
YA make a final fantasy vii remake and let it take them the next 10 years
Looks like SE likes to tease fans FFVII. I wonder what this new thing will be though.
FF7 remake isnt gonna happen face it
For real. If for no other reason than that if it DOES happen, Square Enix won't be able to get people all worked up over the possibility of it happening and then pull the old bait'n'switch anymore.
yeah like if they did do a remake when would it be released? in 2010? impossible I would even doubt a 2011 release because theres too many FF games coming out at the same time.
somebody called that earlier on today I dont remember his name tho.
Pretty obvious from the start, wasn't it?
That's what I was gonna say. Everybody who wasn't an idiot could tell it wasn't FFVII (since when was silver surfer in that game?) and the Japanese commentors already mentioned it was probably Lord of Vermilion.
Show VII to get attention then switch.
I just dont get it. They know people want a remake but they keep insisting on not doing it. I'd pick a remake of ffvii over a lot of all these relatively unknown games square keeps teasing at. And here I was thinking they were in it for the gamers.... tsk tsk tsk.
they're already working on too many games. FFXIII is about to come in 2010 and so is Crystal Chronicles on wii I think with Blood of bahamut and Agito. That's already alot from the FF camp. I doubt we'll see 2 major Final Fantasy game come out in 2010 so I guess it's a 2011 release for FFXIIIVersus and FF14 Online . and in between that theres like 5other games they're working on like the Mech game and the FF gaiden etc etc etc. where would Final Fantasy fit in there? 2011 and beyond. and there's always the fact that if they screw up that remake people will be pissed.
To be honest, I have no expectation for a VII remake. Hopefully, Lord of Vermilion is as good as it looks. Because this would definitely convince me to get a PS3 Eye.
But if Sony could somehow work it out with SE to release a FF VII remake exclusively on the PS3, man it would be a guaranteed system seller.
Microsoft would never ever let that happen, theyd prolly throw at least 50 mil at SE and that would be the starting amount. If Sony was smart though they would start talking to SE about it and fund a good portion of it to make it a ps3 exclusive but we all know Sony doesnt like paying to make games exclusive.
They wouldn't even need to do that. since SE bought Edios, the original publishers for FF7 on Windows PC. So MS wouldn't even need to throw money at SE since they know they would get 3 times as much money doing it on both the ps3 and 360. because we all know how much ps3 fans support there great games. HUMHMPH. killzone.... >.> <.<
You think 50 mil would stop SONY from securing a FFVII remake? hahaha
FF7 remake on ps4D and xbox1080p
So its a different game figures.
there is really no need to remake one of the most overrated games in the history of RPG gaming. we already gave the fanboys FFvii on the PSN, that is more than enough. considering the fact that fans of 8 and 9 aren't being considered. besides hasn't SE done enough remakes. they should stop with the remakes and concentrate make some new f**king games that are worth a sh*t.
New games? Look at their line up of new games. I'll name the Final Fantasy games. Final Fantasy XIII Final Fantasy Versus XIII Final Fantasy XIV Final Fantasy Agito Final Fantasy Dissidia And that new one that's coming out on DS, forgot what it was called. I'm probably even missing one or two for all I know. And this list didn't even include the OTHER games they've been working on.
they have been working on these games for too long and you seem to forget that SE practically sh*ts remakes. all the remakes they have done in the past year are a waist of time and resources when they can concentrate on some new sh*t. hell, they probably could have developed those games a little faster and more efficiently if there brains weren't waisted on remakes
I think perhaps they don't want to because they'd have to make it exclusive to PS3 (doesn't Sony own the publishing rights to FF VII) and we all know how much SE love SONY.
Doesn't SONY own the publishing rights to FF VII? If that's so then perhaps SE would have to make the remake exclusive to PS3 and we all know just how much SE loves SONY.
Sony owns NA and PAL publishing rights only. but publishing only deals with distribution. the ultimate decision to remake that game would be left up to SE. which i hope they dont do?
Thanks for clearing that up
no prob man
