This is blatantly obvious. Simply by virtue that PS5 is backwards compatible with PS4. So it works on Next Gen out the box with all of the enhancements that next gen would automatically afford.

In time I think it likely Square Enix will want to bring this ambitious and expensive game to Xbox and PC. However the question asked is not whether it will come to other platforms but whether it will come to new-gen consoles. The answer he gives could be interpreted, at first instance, to mean it will be coming to this generation, PS4 and next generation, PS5.

I mean aren't practically all exclusives expensive to make but 3rd party exclusives still exist lool... so that's a pretty weak reason for believing it's coming to Xbox especially with the amount of times its been shot shown... simply put it'll hopefully come to more platforms because we hope it will.. its honestly as simple as that.

Should be PS5 only and make it Turn Based.

Not this Kingdom Hearts shovelware.

Definitely has nothing to do with bringing this ambitious game to Xbox and PC but let's just squeeze that in there anyway.

You really need to learn the definition of shovelware, and it plays nothing like Kingdom Hearts.

I wouldn't mind seeing the future titles eventually releasing in the PS5

Kurisu1860d ago

Yep, it's obvious. I can't wait. If the Final Fantasy VII Remake looks this good on PS4 then imagine how good it's going to look on PS5. Has there been any confirmation if the recent footage was captured on an original PS4 or a PS4 Pro?

I'm hoping to see footage of it running on the new Xbox personally

Well, once the new XBox comes out, you will easily be able to pull up YouTube or Twitch and stream a walkthrough of the game played on a PlayStation.

Considering this is only the first piece of the remake and it's going to take years to complete the set, it's not even a question.

criticalkare1860d ago

Yeah i think part 2 is cross gen and beyond that is PS5 title

Applejack1860d ago

That wouldn’t make much sense.

Neither does breaking one game into however many, but here we are.
