Today a rumor has again has risen again about Final Fantasy VII remake. According to a Konami insider, a Final Fantasy VII remake has been confirmed for the PlayStation 3.
plss be true..pls be true.
mistake i ment to reply to below.
please dont be true, ff7 sucked, and they just keep releaseing more and more stuff based upon it, I dont wanna see nextgen whiney sephiroth, I want my mommy, and Cloud...im a slider 1st class, but not really cause im insane but dont tell the gamers out there cause we want these plot holes never to make sense.
The above is opinion if you dont like it...well there you go.
I couldn't disagree more. I LOVED this game and would buy it again in a heartbeat. Sorry but I think you're the minority on this one.
Cause most of the mass market has no taste and simply follows the herd, I didn't like ff7, and didn't like 8,9,10,x-2 or 12...for that matter. I would much rather see an nextgen remake of 6.
you could say the samething about halo 1,2,3
that halo 1-3 has nothing to do with this, your just trying to be a fanboy, But if you want to bring halo into it, Yes the mass market, AKA casuals are sheep, they follow, this is no different if it comes to halo, or final fantasy.
But halo atleast when it first came out was some thing new, Final fantasy for the past 10 or so years has been the exact same thing pretty much over and over again, Same oh there is this great evil/replace with generic great evil, and some people fighting it/replace with generic people fighting, or young boy, or young girl...ect, and they find this sword and or monster and or thing to fight along side them.... you get the idea.
Most of the mass market that wants ff7 remake seem that the first rpg they ever played was ff7 and thats a big reason its their favorite, I on the other hand played ff1 long before I ever played ff7, And I find that ff6 was a vastly better game, atleasts its main villian didn't boil down to i'm a whiney lil gothy mommas boy and i wanna rule the world damit!
Remake FF4 or ff6, But god dont remake ff7, its had enough spin offs...ect based upon it to last a decade, Give another part of the franchise a chance, Hell I'd even be willing for them to remake 8, or 10 any thing but 7.
i just hope it gets packed in w/ FF13.
that would be the best idea, i think.
i think so too.
i think it would be a good way to sell systems.
make commercials for it and everything.
i hope to "whatever made this place" this happens.
If this happens..... Goodbye 360... satanas it would sky rocket the sales of the PS3 enough to threaten 360 sales and then MGS4 will finish it.
"If this happens..... Goodbye 360..."
What the hell? How?
I think you're in way over your head.
Although I'm sure this would make many FF fans happy. I'm more interested in simply FFXIII and Versus, though.
I don't know satanas I know a good many people who aren't intresting in buying a PS3 but said the remake of FFVII would be the reason they would buy it. Now obviously it only a few friends of mine, but if they're thinking that way, more are in the same mind set. FFVII is a cult classic that has quite the following so if it were to come out... yeah PS3 would get a massive increase in units sold
I didn't say anything about that. I just said it's dumb to call FF7 remake "the end of the 360." That's stupid, only a fanboy would disagree.
I'm sure some fans WOULD buy a PS3 for a remake, though, as you said.
man.. this series was really good. ah... i hope FF13 and others are not turn-based RPG... i hate that!
why would a konami insider know??
that seems odd.
That was my first reaction when I read the title.
However, it'd be foolish to assume that Square is blind to all the hype going on about an FF7 remake. The chances are that they're very well monitoring the response of their fans whenever "rumours" like these arise. The particularity of them asking for an FF7 remake, and asking it specifically for Ps3 .. should hint a thing or two about what's to come from Squeenix concerning an FF7 remake.
Konami and Square Enix signed a deal to make Zone Of The Enders 3 and I guess Konami found out some stuff from Square Enix. And satanas don't take it personal. Its only games!
I hope it's true...
There is no reason why Square-Enix wouldn't do this. When there is money to be made why back away?
they keep random battles and the materia system. Just make it look next-gen that's all I want from the remake
give you the option to play through original mode or the new version with the added extras. It would be on Blu-Ray so this would be possible!
heh yeah adding more to the quests, side quests, and a bigger mini-game arena would be very good.
I also agree that they should keep the basic mechanics of the game intact. I wouldn't be disappointed if they re-did it though, I want to go through the story again more than anything.
Some kind of online functionality would be awesome. Like an online arena...
i have just made a new post on the impression take a look it sounds realy good :-))
and other Square trickery to milk franchises, but this is one of my favorite games,(In the TOP 5) I could not see myself not owning a PS3 just to play this game, and I probably would play it and beat it before I would touch FFXIII.
so yeah I'm old-school, MATERIA and RANDOM battles keeps it interesting. I like, to not know whats lurking in darkness or unfamlilar area until that Random battle music starts.
I'm playing FF12 and of course it's different. I have not gotten used to it. I seem to be dodging fights and running away most of the time. Especially when a part member strays and engages other tough beast, then you end up fighting 4 fights. Just chaos.
I need this game come on remake it for the PS3!!
Whats Konami got to do with a Final Fantasy VII remake? How would they know?
I call BS. Not because of the Konami thing, but because of the fact that the Square Enix party would have been the perfect time to announce such a title...
I agree and the word remakes could mean umm let's sat Derge of Cerebus,or umm Crisis Core both games are based on FF7
Yea, I was thinking the same thing. WTH, Konami got to do with Square.
I really hope this is true because i have not yet played FF VII on Playstation. But this would be a great start in final fantasy world :D
Konami and Square merge at some point?
the best thing square could do is lie and say its not being made, then just announce it when its actually done, 2 weeks before its released,
although i think stores would die from the millions of pre-orders and sales of PS3's lol. nevermind im no good at business
buit still to actually have it confirmed two weeks before it comes out would make everyone go crazy that its official and they can get it really soon dont ya think???
It seems Sony said to SquareEnix"Ok, how much money you want to make a remake of FF7?" Lets not forget that FF7 is best selling FF games EVER. Selling almost 10 million, check it here http://vgchartz.com/worldto...
If i were the boss of Sony i would be thinking the same thing, this game is a sure thing console seller the japanese would go mad for it, this topic will just not die infact it seems to get stronger and stronger surely its only a matter of time now before Squeenix cave in to all the hype.
Konami and Square Enix are pretty tight with each other huh?
Maybe Square has info on MGS4 too.
that was saying the ps3 version of pe6 is 3 times better than the xbox version. BOGUS, square said they wont make it, because it would take roughly 7 years and a budget in the high millions.
ur so right lol. thats funny, i mean everyone wants the game to come out, with the exceptions of a few people. but i think if square is really money hungry then they will just pull that weapon out when they need it. first off, we all know how EXPENSIVE it would be to remake that game. the game was HUGE, so many side quest, so much talking, MUCH more than final fantasy's as of late. To voice over all of that would be insane. i think their would be twice or more than the amount of scenes Xenosaga III had, and that game had 8 hours of scenes.
this is why i think square doesn't really want to remake the game. i see a port alot more likley on the psp, with just updated graphics like Crisis core quality. but all of us people just wish for a ps3 version which we all know would be way to hard.
first how the HECK u gonna make good gaphics with that HUGE world map, and make the characters not giant outside of world map??? second, all the dialog, 3rd the battle system, (well that should be easy for square) but yeah its gonna be alot of work, i mean square said if they remade it it would cost millions, and hundreds of employee's to make the game in 5 years....thats crazy lol.
dont ya Agree?
FF7 sold close to 10million - and im sure those 10 million people would run to the store and buy it again.
with games costing soo much these days to produce why wouldnt they?
i hope the tech demo was the start of their production on making the remake.
its hard to believe the rumor as square has alot on its plate with FFXIII & verus + crisis core etc etc...
also at the square party they had a baord to post what remake ppl wanted to see and FF7 was all over that...more good news that this rumour is true
i hope they add much more features and side quest...go past the ending of the PS1 and close of some unanswered questions we had
not only would this release own - but it would boost PS3 sales world wide-reliving the greatest RPG on this planet 2 date
i hope its true
If they keep the random battles and the materia system and add multiple endings and I would drop 80 dollars for it!
every three weeks. You really think it is gonna happen? That is their ACE. They will wait till the company is broken and no one cares (which is sure to happen once they flood the market with remakes like they are doing in the next two years).
Wait...a Konami insider? Even if it's a SquareEnix insider, I would still have my doubts since it's a rumor, but a Konami insider??
I'd rather have FFXIII come out sooner, rather than SE start another project.
But if they can get it done in good time, then I'm sure some will appreciate this. If it came to be, I'd probably check it out.
But I certainly don't trust this news atm, because it's too sketchy.
plz be true...
I want a ACTION RPG like versus..
Well if this is true 1up was right then I will be thrilled and can't wait to play this game. I never played seven only eight and the next ones that followed so this is great news to me if it is true.
If this was true..I think I would lose it...bad
...he works in the industry, so naturally he could know someone working at Square-Enix. Use your think-tanks.
How am I not using my reading comprehension? That's interesting, because you didn't seem to comprehend what I just wrote. Someone at Konami could have more credibility than "someone knowing someone that knows something". Oh, and please refrain from telling us the obvious: "Someone at Square probably knows more than someone at Konami". Gee, no shiit, Sherlock.
By the way, you should search the definition of reading comprehension, and hypocrisy too.
Even if it's a SquareEnix insider(insider doesn't necessarily mean actual developer), I would still have my doubts and a SquareEnix insider holds more weight than a Konami insider. Use your Magic Powers.
Reply to Bootsielon:
What the hell are you talking about Bootsielon? I where did you get reading comprehension from?
well if its true, im buying, cause the original was fantastic....
This game is what made the Playstation 1. Regardless of what any Xbox fanboy says it is a wonderfull game and would sell alot of PS3's. he reason is because this game is one of the greatest games in history. Even Xbox fanboys in my school will agree to that. If a gamer who had owned FF7 for PS and saw this remade version for PS3 and they have so many memories with 7 then I do believe they would buy this one. One of my most memorable games of all time is the original Zelda. And let me tell ya, if they remade it with the cheap story and everything but enhanced the graphics and sold it for the wii, I'd buy a wii in a heartbeat.
this is awesome...i think they put at the square party the question what ff remake for something...
I ran the source through a Dutch Translator:
Monday 14 May 2007 - according to a lot of people Final Fantasy VII is the best Final Fantasy ever. Since E3 of 2005, where the tech-demo of the game had been shown, there were rumours that have concerned the remake of Final Fantasy VII. However these rumours became always stronger. Recently Square Enix to be possible let more with remakes of old games, occupy itself because there according to their question to is. Moreover 1UP FFVII incorporated already in its releaselijst.
Today a rumour has again added himself to the row, because according to Konami insider, the same as at the pro Evo reported, Final Fantasy VII has been confirmed for the PlayStation 3. Natural it is strange that someone of Konami something like that confirmed, whereas the game of Sqaure Enix is. The best man lets thus in its blog know that he this has learned on developer meeting. The time will learn it our.
People this is guaranteed to happen!
The only real question is when will it be released!
There has already been speculation that Sony got Square
Enix to start the remake for the PS3 2 years ago!
Its coming the only real question is when 2008 or 2009!
only bad, that not so soon.. =)
but yeah, in some 2009 definately.
even though I never made it past the Chocobo breeding (<--- how ever you spell it) part in the original.
uh...i think this is bogus. why wouldnt square announce at the square enix party
Think about wine, It taste better the older it gets! Like many classical remake games, FF7 remake/ FFTremake psp. It's just asking more Fans, an Gamers to relive a great game with HD graphics. I hope they also remake FF8, Clouds tight, but i think Squall a bit better if your counting how many hits they do on there limits! Cloud=16 onmislash
Squall= 26-42 Lion Heart~depending on his rhythm!
I'll definetly be buying this as well, FF7 is a classic. If they do remake it i hope they add to the story a bit more with extra scenes and such to make it a little different tho
Anyone that doesn't like it just go back to your FPS games because FF7 is the King of this genre, this and FF8
EDIT: They should also add free roam fighting like how FF12 is rather than FF7
and i had the same thought as many others... why would someone from konami know about this?
but yeah, if they do remake this, i'll buy it, though many other rpgs have take elements and improved on it greatly..
If this is true, it will make me unbelievably happy. If not, I will feel like crying...not really, but you all know what I mean. I would be very, very excited to see this news confirmed. Not getting my hopes up...trying not to.
Here's hoping. There's just too much pointing it out. Plus it wouldn't look too difficult to do. The story is there. Everything is designed. It just needs a makeover. Given the fact that there's a remake department and that there was the remade scenes in the PS3 tech demo and the beginning of advent children, it just seems more and more likely. As said previously. I believe it's not a matter of if. It's a matter of when.
