Best Buy advertising FFVII for the PlayStation 3

Either someone at Best Buy is getting fired or Square Enix has kept this announcement so far under wraps that not even their own company knew about it. Over this past weekend, photos have been circulating on the internet that have displayed the release of Final Fantasy VII on the PlayStation 3 come August 16 of 2008.

The story is too old to be commented.

I dont believe this will happen at all but If it does then Square was developing a remake right under our noses the whole time.

Shouldn't you be at school learning multiplications?

Alexander Roy3819d ago

Can someone please put yankeespawn back in the Open Zone? So much stupidity gives me a headache.

FF7 is def one of the best games of all time. Western RPGs are crap because they always lack in story. The main character is never interesting and that is usually because you can create/customize your main character. Sounds good, but not for an RPG. The main character needs to have a strong story. Clouds story is really good in FF7.

I love chinese games, especially FFVII, considering its chinese and all. Of course american games are better, especially when they're in totally different genres that cant really be logically compared.

Shane Kim3819d ago

I thought this game was Japanese.

riksweeney3819d ago

It's Japanese, people are just being silly.

shazam3819d ago

this is the ps1 version coming out on psn. duhh

metalhead3819d ago

I love the list I made. Never fails lol

FantasyStar3819d ago

I'd still buy it. Add some tweaks here and there, and you got it!

Doppy3819d ago

Haven't commented on here in a while, but this could be a number of things. It could be a re-release on the PS1 game, it could be Crisis Core being released on PSN, could be a true FF7 remake but I'm sure if it was that Square would have said something about it at the DK13 whatever it was called, or just an awful prank.

Pr3-M3d_G4M3R3819d ago

They forgot to change the VII to XIII, the release date, and the system lol. I dont think bestbuy advertises PSN releases

Xiru3819d ago

Why would best buy have PSN releases listed....?

iamtehpwn3819d ago

How do you expect Best buy to make money off the PSN release of FFVII...?

Anyway, FFVII-RE will be revealed at TGS, it appears.
Square Enix didn't reveal it at their party because they probably wanted to steal the show at TGS. Japanese companys always focus harder on TGS.

MAiKU3818d ago

"FF7 is def one of the best games of all time. Western RPGs are crap because they always lack in story. The main character is never interesting and that is usually because you can create/customize your main character."

You sir have never played Baldur's Gate to make such a statement. While I agree FFVII was a great game, to say that western rpg's have no story is an ignorant statement. Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn and it's expansion is my favorite game of all time. You have endless dialog trees and there are so many different things that can happen in the game as well as a horde of different ending, which are all tied into the decisions and your behavior while playing.

I loved FFVII, and would pick up a remake on day one. But just because you haven't played a western rpg with a great story, doesn't mean they don't exist!

E3 just passed and if SE had something to show would have showed it in E3 and it would have been good opportunity to make it up for sony for FF13 defection

but again its inevitable that FF7 is heading to ps3.

yankeespawn3819d ago

It will be mutliplatform.

Youll see. MS will get all the games for US!

theKiller3819d ago

syanara3819d ago

I wouldn't be so sure sony owned the first FInal Fantasy VII title on the ps1 and ever FFVII title after that has been playstation exclusive like DoC and Crisis Core so I'm not sure but they might still own it and FFVII on the ps3 would probably be exclusive anyways even if sony didn't own final fantasy VII

yankeespawn3819d ago

cloud3603819d ago

If this game is PS3 exclsuive it will make me buy a ps3.

i dislike the ps3 and dont want this to be multiplatform or it will suck. It should be exclusive to at least 1 console!
