    IT'S HAPPENING!




    Final Fantasy VII remake coming first to PS4.

    Release date TBC (Probably 2017 for 20th anniversary)

    Note: Not direct like-for-like remake. Think Advent Children meets FFXIII. Also potentially different battle system.

    This pleases me. I think I would personally appreciate a remake of 8 more - although it has aged far better so maybe not.

    I think it's going to be technically brilliant but I think it will ultimately disappoint fans. It's going to be fuelled by so much Nostalgia and happy memories that it's set to leave a sour taste in a lot of mouths.
    It's my fave game of all time but the magic simply won't be there a second time especially knowing all story and secrets. It will just be a trip down memory lane.
    That said, I enjoyed Zelda A Link Between Worlds for that very reason but it's a relatively short and much simpler game story wise.

    I think this is why the announcement had no effect on me. Ten years ago may have been a different story.

    I think that would be a bigger troll than the PC port announcement last year :p. As much as I love VIII personally, they would be much better off doing VI or VII as VIII is very much the Marmite game of Final Fantasy's golden era.

    I think VI has aged well and doesn't warrant a remake tbh.

    Final Fantasy 7 was the reason I traded a Sega Saturn 2 pads and over 20 games for a Playstation one pad no memory card 1 game.

    This was that one game.

    Unbelievable, this announcement is what everybody is talking about this morning.

    Not just to PS4. It says 'First on PS4'. It'll come out on everything eventually, they'd be mad not to, it's going to sell millions.

    Was the rumor not a console exclusive for a year?

    Yep, SquareEnix dont have the money anymore to make big games like this exclusive to one platform. I be buying this on day one for the PS4 as I want a physical disc but it also get the PC version for those super high resolution textures.

    This could be a start of an era, once FF7 is out the way then they can do 8 and 9 as the engine will already be there.

    I hope they don't mess up the soundtrack. They did well with the remastered soundtrack of FF10 HD.

    I just can't see it releasing on Xbox. FF7 has always been a Sony thing. It'll only come to PC because of it was originally.
