Square's big budget fan service film, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, is heading to Blu-ray and it's going to provide much more than an HD transfer.
I think I'll let my friend keep my DVD copy 'cause I am definitely getting the Blu-ray version.
what do you expect for a version on BD---next gen format winner. I guess this is the end for HD DVD sleeping beauty,spidey 1,2,3, pirates 1,2,3,cars,lion king---say GOOD BYE to HD DVD .
Did you really just use Sleeping Beauty as a "weapon" against HD?
I'm glad I didn't buy this yet on DVD.
But you've got to wonder if all the special features from the DVD version make it to the blu ray version?
It isn't like they will run out of space... If they are planning to release this movie again, and went so far as to add details such as dirt, do you really think they will add less content? I was thinking the opposite. I guess we will have to wait and see.
Yes but with the way SquareEnix are at the moment (constant re releases of old games to milk money) it wouldn't suprise me if they missed an extra or 2 off the blu ray version so that you would need the blu ray and the DVD to see all the extra features, then again I HOPE I am wrong and it has all the extra's of the DVD plus more
Final Fantasy reinvents itself with every release. They do not go the safe route. Milking is more justifiable in a company like EA or a game like Mario where the same game is released year after year.
i hope they include last order... but yeah, definitely buying this one
they did say there will be more features and what not
I really hope they release the trailer soon.....
i got my dvd version but i'm willing to dump it to get blu-ray instead. Anybody want a japanese version no sub advent children, i give it to anybody here...when blu-ray version is out
That'd be sick if they included the original Final Fantasy VII game as a special feature.
YEHA!!! I've been waiting and waiting for this.. I've been holding off on the dvd version.. I can't wait!!
You've been waiting 2 1/2 years in hopes of a blu-ray version?
Final Fantasy Vll please..... (we can dream)
Ohkay. I'm REALLY REALLY confused. There was a copy of FF:AC on Blu-ray at Best Buy the other day. Was that a misprint or something? I know it wasn't FF:SW. Seriously though...it was there at Best Buy. I can go look for it later and send a picture in if you guys want. I guess they just screwed up then...
missprint or missread most likely.
Ah DARN, so now i will get my 3rd iteration of FF7:AC, The localized DVD, The original Jpn steelbox version + now the BluRay version. \o/ darn addiction :S Let's pray it won't be region locked and has a decent sub + original language. Most dubs ain't worth the money.
This will most likely be my second Blu-ray Purchase unless another movie comes before that. I'll be picking up the CE Or LE of it. All that space, Multiple Languages please. Thanks.
i hope there will be more of those new cutscenes and more added scenes that they're talking about..
Final Fantasy Fans are also PS2 fans, yah? Final Fantasy Blu Ray Remastered Vesion = mini PS3 system seller! It will be interesting to see the sales trend of the release of a bluRay MOVIE instead of a game. First time in history. I just noticed!! Ppl who are on the fence..maybe getting one sooner than they think?
I doubt that. Even though I personally love FF, I would never go out and buy a PS3 just for this. Thats not to say that other might just do that, but chances are that if you like FF, you already have the dvd and save the occasional person the average person wouldn't go out and buy the same movie again. Kind of like how you probably wont go out and replace all your dvds with what ever format wins. Its also why I prefer HD-DVD since they forced all players to be backwords compatible. Not that bly-ray can do this also, but it isn't a forced feature which is quite stupid in my opinion.
No, i was saying ppl on the fence, like pp who will get a PS3 anyways, but just was thinking maybe getting one when FF13 comes out, but this will expedite the process. It's like..oh well why not, get it now, watch the bluRay play some other games till it comes out
YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!! FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!! YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS SSS!!! FF7 ROCKS! BRING US REMAKE!!!
well half my prayer was answered now i need the ffvii REMAKE then im in heaven
The article itself was crap. I wanted to know a solid release date and it didn't provide that. All it did was rehash information that I knew months ago. I'm still looking forward to the blu-ray release though.
Wow that craptastic movie is being remade just for blu ray? how retarded....well they've just single handedly pissed off every one that purchased the movie for dvd.
How? People release director's cuts all the time, how is this any different?
@WilliamRLBaker, Okay, we all know that you freakin' hate FF7. So you don't like the game and the movie (no duh!), so why are you so freakin' hell bent on telling your opinion on every FF7 related article? A whole lot of people enjoyed the game, so just ACCEPT that fact, and stop saying that those same people were originally RPG noobs!! It's not people's fault that you didn't like the game, so just shut up already!! Oh, who the heck am I arguing with. You're one of those 'special' people who like to argue against anything what a whole lot of people agree. Hell, I won't be surprised if you argue that doing drugs is actually good for your health.
Shock Horror. Xbot doesn't like FF and must inform the world in case some of them were enjoying it. Just for the record, I didn't know what the hell was going on in this movie, but I didn't let that stop me enjoying it. It was all about eye candy for me, and man was it some sweet candy. Probably the best graphics and SFX ever produced and action so quick, in a lesser quality film it might have bee a gargbled mess. Seriously nothing has impressed me like this movie since the first time in 99 I saw this strange film by little known directors The Wachoski Brothers. FFVII AC was mad for BR and if they want to sell PS3's, BR's and even Bravia TV's all they have to do it set one up in every electronic store. The movie and the hardware will do the rest.
I was at Best buy the other day and almost picked up the DVD version of this flick. I'm glad I didn't because this movie in 1080p will look so damn good. I'm guessing this is a Blu-ray exclusive because HD DVD was not even mentioned even once. Anyone know when this will be released?
Why? Because Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is all over the DVD box. An I don't think Sony will be supporting HD DVD anytime soon :-D
Blu-ray will most likely lose the format war like all the other formats by Sony I will probably pick this movie up.
this is not a sony proprietory format. ITs in conjunction with alot of companies.
what is this your last jab at sony until your game comes out tonight.
