Sony Corp.'s U.S. game division on Tues. said that Square Enix Co.'s Final Fantasy VII for the Playstation Network division of the Playstation 3 is the No. 1 download content for the week.
How come no one's making a big deal about FFIV: The After Years kicking ass on the Wiiware?
because FF VII was the game that made people care about RPGs in the first place. and so to see it sell this much in 2 weeks says alot. it rings a bell at SE that people want a Remake it rings a bell at sony that consumers want their PS1 fixes for the PSP.
Ok Spoony... we will admit it. The wii is a gaming machine. Move on, nothing to see here.
haha, no this isn't about the Wii pennywise it's about the fact that FFIV: The After Years is getting no attention!
Spoony, you are a good sport. I like to tease the two or three Wii fans on N4G. I just started picking because you brought up Wii in a PSN article.
Shh we aren't allowed to acknowledge there are other Final Fantasies besides VII ;)
Is it anything like FF3 on the SNES? j/k I always been a phantasy star fan myself but I will give cred to FF series. It is a series without a "final". Maybe SE should think up a new naming scheme for the series??
well, maybe Sony or SE will be kind enough to give us the WW numbers in a few weeks. I'm pretty sure SE would reconsider their current PS3 support if this direct port of an over 10 years old game sells more than anything they have released so far this generation.
FFIV > FFVII As well FF VI > FFVII
Don't get me wrong, I love FFIV much more than VII, but you're basically paying 30 something bucks for the entire game, where FFVII is just one $10 fee. I find that stupid and don't see why SE felt that it was a must to sell an RPG in episodic form.
i still need to buy FF7 on PSN.
FFVI is my favorite RPG of all time. Nothing beats the story, characters, and overall charm. However, FFVII is a close second.
You sir are the most correct person in this post. You get a bubble. FFIV for the ultimate win. It is the grandaddy of FF's, and FFVII takes A LOT from it. My personal favorite FF game ever.
I was a pure Sega guy... Phantasy Star Series, Shining Force Series, and Panzer Dragoon Saga were, in my opinion, the best RPG's on the market and the only ones worth playing.....never messed with nintendo's machines and I had a Sega Saturn that I was very happy with when the Playstation launched....but, when I saw FF7 in action at my neighborhood Funcoland, I walked out of the store that day with a new PS1, Final Fantasy 7 and Rally Cross..... Final Fantasy 7 changed the way I had been thinking for years and luckily over the years I have had an opportunity to play the previous installments... all were great, but in my opinion, FF7 sits on the top of the heap as far as the Final Fantasy Series is concerned....My favorite RPGs of all time are FF7 and Panzer Dragoon Saga....followed by Knights of the Old Republic and Jade Empire for the PC..... these are my opinions and everyone has their right to like what they like.....but, just so we are clear... I am right :)
If FF7 was 5 bucks i would buy it for sure. Considering i still have it for my PS1.
"LazyDevs - 2 hours ago PM Track Ignore 1.14 - If FF7 was 5 bucks i would buy it for sure. Considering i still have it for my PS1. " I spend $10 bucks on a snack and a smoke, I have it for my PS1 and I spend $45 back then but now I have it in my PS3 and my PSP, so.... what is stopping you from buying this baby is $5????
I kind of know how you feel. Kind of. I bought The After Years, and I am enjoying it. FFIV was also my first FF, so I was pretty excited to get to play after the story. Fact is, the gameplay IS dated, and feels it. FFVII also has dated gameplay, but it's not AS dated. I still consider IV to be the overall better game, but there really is something special about VII, and it's really no surprise that it's getting all the publicity. If I got the have things my way, they would make a next gen version of VI. VI was the best Final Fantasy, and I don't think they'll ever make another with the quality of it's story and characters.
Not a duplicate. The previous story doesn't have any of the unit sales stats issued by Sony.
And this is just NA. Hopefully, it hits a million. That'd be a quick ten million dollar profit for just a re release.
$10 million revenue as there are expenses to be paid
FFIV the after years on my Wii. It should be on the DSi. If it is then I'll think about it. I like that I can take FFVII with me now on my PSP and still play it on the PS3. And for those who own more than 1 PSP, the 5 activations you get is great.
I just picked up a second psp (2001 for $80). I tried using my 2gb mspro in it from my psp 1001 and the games I had dl to it wouldnt work. I am betting it is only coded to work with the psp that originally dl it???? I do need to get a bigger mspro. Can you just copy from one stick to the other and play the game so long as it is in the original psp?
You have to activate the other psp under your psn account, without it being activated it'll just give the error message telling you to do so
Why don't square just re-release them all, that would earn you quite a bit of money... in fact why don't more devs re-release more games on PSN/XBL as a side project like Burnouts, older socoms... and anything else. I wasn't much of a gamer 'till PS3 so I can't say much.
as soon as I could after they announced it at E3. I hope Sony continues to bring us small surprises at E3 that make an immediate impact.
re-releasing more titles. It's a weekly objective now for Sony. Plus Square is coming out with Final Fantasy: Tactics, I believe as it appeared on the ESRB ratings.
Vandel Hearts please.
The first Vandal Hearts was the best Tactical RPG I ever played.
and still would re-buy them, but in this instance it would be to have on my PSP. Vandal Hearts I and II were great and still are great. The story on Vandal Hearts and the music was excellent. I heard they were making a 3rd one for the Xbox Arcade and PSN to download. It's supposed to be a prequel to Vandal Hearts I and the hints of who's story. I can't wait. Fake geysers of over the top blood here I come :)
Nice to see some Vandal Hearts fans in here :). I'm sure everyone remembers the villager level where they were possessed by the stone statues, and you had to destroy the statues and not kill all the villagers. Hard but epic level...stupid counter attack lol
I had to think about that stage and what strategy I needed to do to succeed. Especially when the zombies surrounded you and you wanted to cut them (and you had to) to get to those damn statues. I love this game. Get on it Konami. In addition to releasing the vandal hearts game you've announced. Released the original too. Make it like gunstar heroes and include trophies. It doesn't need it since it's already awesome but it goes from A+ to A++ in my book. ^_^
not sure if you have seen this yet but after seeing the artwork i almost puked... http://kotaku.com/5283258/v...
After I get an extra memory card ill d/l FFvii then ill finally try to kill that damn Ruby monster grrr I tried to fight it when I first got the game but I just could not do it because I did not have the summon for Knights of the Round and I was told you really need that to beat Ruby
Already got it on PS1 but that would be good to play on my PSP.
Ill prolly get this after I am able to get my PSP Go.
The main selling point for me is the fact you can transfer it to your psp. Hopefully this helps SE realize that many PS owners are also rabid FF fans. Thus other psX FF's will be looked at as well.
got so hooked up i went and bought FF XII, have not played it yet, but is there for later
You will like the combat, but not the story unfortunately. FFX is among the best right behind FF7.
My personal fav is FFVIII, VII is a close second.
becoming more sucessfull then the flops square rpgs on the 360 :D
SE was too stupid and lazy to make an HD version that could've easily sold for $19.99-$29.99. Ti busy making 360 classics like *COUGH* Last Remnant and Infanant Undiscovery I guess. Hows that working out for ya SE? LOL
square!! if this doesnt giv u more motive to make exclusive ps3 games then a dnt no wat will
I'm not at all surprised...neither should anyone else. I'm not even surprised that this game is selling better than their usual crap releases on 360. I'm getting FFVII tomorrow, so add me to the statistic :)
100,001 units confirmed ;)
Out of bubbles confirmed. Learn how to edit your posts.
Does this mean FFVII remake.
But isn't the FFIV game a 5+ cell phone game? With no graphic update, unlike all of the FFI~III remakes?
Oh! I bought FF7 and I really like the pre rendered backgrounds even though it's static. It does so much to engulf you into the game. Much better than how they are doing it now with the high poly characters and bland world map found in psp games currently.
Square Enix really should crank out RPG's for the ps3.
Does anyone else here besides me like Shadow Hearts?
First 2 were excellent. 3rd one was kinda retarded. Still, that's another series I would definitely looking forward to seeing come to the PS3.
I do as well. I thought the developer closed its doors that made the series though.
I downloaded FFVII and I'm loving it. It really take me back when I played it the first time on the PSX. As I play the game I try to imagine what the best and defining moments of the game or even the overall gameplay itself would look like with next-gen graphics just like the tech demo. I'm already sure SE will remake this game in the next-gen style. If the original is selling 100K in 2 weeks, imagine how much the remake would sell. SE has to be thinking the same thing and I'm sure, one day, they'll do it. I'm thinking they're just trying to get all their other projects out of the way first and then they'll start working on the remake. Fingers crossed. Can't wait!
I'm kinda shocked more haven't sold. As popular as FF7 is. *shrug*
that's FF 8 dammit!!!
Vagrant Story, and Parasite Eve 2 (and 1, although i own that one), and for Sony to release Alundra Alundra 2 Legend of Dragoon Legend of Legaia since i don't own those on the PS1 seriously, where are more PS1 classic RPGs on the PSN? i'd also love for Sony to find some way to allow us to play PSP games on our PS3. i'd buy a crapload more PSP games if i could play them on my TV without needing my PSP.
my copy of ghostbuster and infamous is still in its wrapper... i even had to bust out my strategy guide i've had in storage... a true gem... the story truely holds up...
