With Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth's wild gameplay, your PS5 will feel more like a Nintendo DS

Taking full advantage of every inch of the PS5 DualSense controller, Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth could feel oddly similar to a Nintendo DS game at times.

It will make it feel like an old handheld with low resolution?

VincentVanBro87d ago

This is one of those boring days at the office

NotoriousWhiz87d ago

Actually, they were high, so a pretty good day for them.

Oh yeah, I'm sure we all remember the haptic feedback and adaptive triggers on the DS....plus the gyro. It's all so similar!

I want zero complaints if the next COD is trash as you all bought it.

Hugodastrevas20d ago

Just checking-in to say I'm not part of "you all". Don't know who keeps buying that slop.

Zeref20d ago

The people that buy CoD aren't on this website.

PapaBop20d ago

Yeah COD is more of a causal game, loads of people who aren't necessarily huge day one gamers buy it as their friends buy it and even if I haven't bought one in years, it is a game that's much more fun with groups of friends.

Good to see ff7 performing 🏆
HD2 smashing records! I hope it motivates other studios to bring on some decent similar games.
Also miss some good FPS

shinoff218320d ago

No. We don't need more of these

shinoff218320d ago (Edited 20d ago )

Two comments saying the sane thing. Mines down voted more lol

truth is we don't need more hd2 games

Barlos20d ago

I'd rather not see more HD2 games thanks. We want less live service games, not more.

Cacabunga20d ago (Edited 20d ago )

I really meant successful games.. but clearly no gaas. I didn’t buy it for that very reason. Apparently the gaas model isn’t bad in it so that helped with its success

ravens5220d ago

Pretty sure all the people who agreed with you, knew what you meant. Including myself. 👍🏽

EternalTitan20d ago

I knew Rebirth had good legs.
Its start was poor.

Scissorman21d ago

Okay. NOW can we stop with the whole 'Rebirth was a flop' chatter? Still selling remarkably well after two months.

RpgSama20d ago (Edited 20d ago )

It might have had a lower out of the gate sales than the first one, but kind of makes sense considering how front loaded I'm sure that one must have been, the anticipation was through the roof after many years and many teases of an actual remake.

This one will have long legs, I'm sure of it.

PapaBop20d ago (Edited 20d ago )

FF7R released to how many potential buyers compared to Rebirth? Sales figures be damned, it's still my game of the generation so far. I'd be surprised if it didn't end up being a good seller for Square, if it isn't then their expectations are probably far too high.

Tacoboto20d ago

It's not a flop but Square isn't celebrating its sales one bit, and DD2 launched nearly a month later but outsold it immediately in the US. Who would've predicted that two months ago?

If you're Square, you're panicking, and that's why we got the news yesterday of them changing their approach to development.

Hofstaderman20d ago (Edited 20d ago )

Square traditionally has insane sales expectations. How will releasing this on XBOX that has moved so little consoles and historically moves so little Square titles help this game's sales?
There seems to be a deliberate dialogue that is trying to be spread that this game is a conmercial failure. Articles like these prove otherwise.
And by the way the third game will also be Sony console exclusive, this was confirmed already. I will be buying a PS6 for that.

Einhander197220d ago

There is so much misinformation, there was a double pack which in the first month contributed to around 40% of the total sales but that was rarely included or pointed out in charts like this.

The truth is it's sold on par when you consider that this game has released much earlier in the console cycle.

NotoriousWhiz20d ago

Isn't FF7 part 3 supposed to launch in 3 years or so? If it does, I can guarantee they'll release it on the PS5 to take advantage of that install base. They will not want to release on a fresh gen with a low install base.

shinoff218320d ago (Edited 20d ago )

They had been talking about their changes though for awhile. Well before rebirth released

Einhander1972

Absolutely but all the naysayers are forgetting this or flat-out leaving that info out because they have a motive.

Tacoboto20d ago

Square announces cuts and cancellations and you all still defend them.

Why waste your energy when even Square won't?

You are misinformed, yes SquareEnix is making cuts but it's not because of Final Fantasy like everyone keeps trying to say, SquareEnix released a lot of games that failed, if you're determined to blame it on Sony it was Foamstars that really underperformed, but it's not just that, their remasters and remakes and other games have failed to sell well, Final Fantasy actually performed within estimations. I'm sure they hoped it would do better but it performed well within reasonable expectations.

And the thing that I always find stupid about these arguments is that Square Enix especially in Japan is much bigger and has far more exclusives on Switch.

People like you and the western media are always looking to point the finger at Sony and whatever game is tied to them and COMPLETELY ignore the bigger picture, and because gaming journalism is a literal joke, where no one does any research at all. It's all just a bunch of clown hacks who don't know what they are talking about and just say crap that will get clicks, then you repeat it.
