Earlier today, the release date of Final Fantasy VII on the PlayStation 3 system was set for 1/1/2008. Now it has changed again. It's new release date is set too 11/01/2008 (November 1, 2008). Does 1UP know a secret that we don't know about?
If Square announces the FFVII remake as a surprise on TGS, not only the Japan will explode, te gaming world be heavily shaken. Has 1UP indeed slipped a secret?
1up have probably done this to spark rumours of a remake so close to TGS. Plus I just dont see how Square Enix could make this game, cause the FFVII team are currently working on FF Versus XIII AND the next Kingdom Hearts. Unless it is handled by a different team, I just dont see how they could fit it into their schedule.
I'm not saying 1UP is right or something but with TGS around, two quick release date changes... And the fact that I said explode was about whenever Square announces FFVII remake. I can't imagine playing FFVII on HD with graphics matching FFVII: Advent Children movie. That would be a killer. One can wish, can't he?
Every 20 year old and Big FF fan like me will buy a ps3 even though this game is not out yet.... Becuase they will know which console will win.... FFVII is 2nd best selling game on ps1 with 10.5mil as of 2007
I will be so happy if they actually do this, but there's no way in hell they can release it by the end of next year. They said on the recent interview they're working hard on XIII now and "if" they announce the remake that'll be much later on. I'm guessing this is some VII related game, like Crisis Core.
More than likely its just 1up starting more rumors. If there ever was a remake of the game it would take about a year or two you would think even if they started on it right after FFXIII and XIII Versus, and Kindom Hearts game it won't likely be finished until 2009-2011.
i think 1up are believers like the FF7 fans:P and they are playin with our hearts
It will be bigger than Halo 3
EGM hasn't leaked anything. Their release date list is horribly inaccurate and undermanned. I use the site frequently to add games to my online collection and know for a fact that many games have dates that can be at least six months off -- even if they're already released! It's a real pain to remember to add a game you just bought to your collection six months down the road just because someone didn't bother to fix things on their end. The new date is most likely just a placeholder since the previous date, January of 2008, is fast approaching, and they wouldn't want people adding a game to their collection that didn't exist yet.
after every 2 3 months they keep updating this date !!!Its nothing but fake!Unless they ACTUALLY announce a remake
IF this is TRUE... Bye bye xbox360 in all of Japan and 1/2 of america 1/4 of uk.... All of my uncles friend played FFVII... 6 People on his street bought the game when it came out... most bought a ps1 just for the game
If FFVII ever came out on the PS3 it would make this Halo 3 hype look liked childs play.
Hasn't Square denied this rumor like 6 gazillion times? Does anyone actually have proof that Square is thinking of making this?
Square has been teasing us with a remake. Sometimes saying that they won't, sometimes saying that they will (Not in relevant terms but in teasing terms) =P. Either way it's inevitable in my opinion.
what company in their right mind give up the opportunity to make serious cash.
Nobody has any proof. Just hopes and dreams... and a petition. Which I signed. :) If they ever release this game I would quit my job and sell everything I own except: my tv, my PS3, my stereo system, and a single chair for me to sit in for all eternity.
Just approve this story and why bring up Halo 3, they are both different games.
Because of the hype between the two games, compare the hype Halo 3 has to the Hype that final Fantasy VII has.
i hope its not fake..... i will cry the day square says yes to ff7
And you thought Japan had a big explosion during WW2 and Dragon Quest. Wait till this puppy gets announced.
Since when was FF7 PS3 announced in the first place? I know they had that CG trailer at E3 2005 I think, but they said they weren't making the game. Anyways, if they announce it at TGS, the console wars are over.
The wii will sell no more systems the 360s will all exlode and ps3 will win because square enix remade an old game?! Yeah right! Who says the remake would be on the ps3 and not the 360? After all the white engine is multiplatform. Final Fantasy 7 was a good game but will you still be surprised when you see Aeris die again? I guess the only way to make your dream come true is to sign that petition - do a search on final fantasy 7 petition on n4g and you'll find it.
Well 99% of Japan will buy a FF7 remake
@Urban bohemian, sorry but your logic about people wouldn't buy a remake of an old game is flawed. Look how many people have been buying the Final Fantasy remakes on the DS, PSP and PS2 (FF anthology) They sold VERY well and they didn't really get that much of an upgrade, can you imagine if they went to town on the PS3?! If FFVII remake does come out, it WILL sell bucket loads! Every reviewer and journalists knows that and some have even stated that (IGN). Remember, some people believe that FF6 and FF7 are 2 of the best RPG's of all time. About the White Engine, yes it is a multiplatform engine, but so is the engine used for Gears of War and Bioshock and these are still MS exclusive.
are the greatest rpgs of all time
I would buy it because I only watched my nephew play the original. However, I don't think it would mean the end of the console war. Hopefully things will stay interesting for all platforms.
Are always moaning about the PS3 sales. Well, this is one way to get a few consoles sold; remake this game :)
They change date to piss people off hahahaha :3
.... wow, i didn't expect this news O_o If the date slipped... it means ther was a real FF VII then?? Great, i need more info about this game, i really loved it >_< i hope i'll see it on my PS3 a day... looking forward for the TGS tho ;P
if FFVII remake for PS3 is announced PS3 sales will drive rocket high.
This is just like when a site sets a date that says 12/31 of that year. It means a release date is undetermined. No big mystery here.
I really don't believe that gaming websites get secret information like that out of nowhere and at a time like this. BUT I WANT TO HEAR THAT ANNOUNCEMENT OH EM GEE
im pretty sure they just changed it because its getting close to jan. or they have some other reason, but i really dont think they know something the rest of the world doesnt.
Seems a bit of a reach. Would be cool though, but I think a FFVII remake would conflict with FFXIII. That is unless FFXIII comes out in January...
