While I agree that it was stupid of them to make this a moderate or any scale of on stage announcement (why troll your own fans) I do think that if SE tried to alter more than just the graphics of FF7 they would fuck it up. The only thing that gets me tho, why is this taking 7+ months to port over to the PS4? Would take less time to build a psone emulator from the ground up on the PC and get it working, are SE giving this port job to 1 intern or is there some extra work going to be done to it, because that amount of time for a straight port is weird.

Actually, this amount of time is normal for Square Enix. Took them 2 or 3 years to remaster FFX, took Naughty Dog at most one year (probably less) to remaster TLOU.

Some devs are just slower than others and Square Enix have proved time and time again that they are one of the slowest.

That's the thing tho, even the remaster of FFX+X2 had a bit of work going into it, this just sounds like a copy paste of the steam game onto the ps4 hardware, given the models that it's moving around being so basic I would think you could take a small % of the ps4's power and software emulate the steam version in less than 7months.... if you weren't SE I guess? :<

I voted for the FF VIII port. :)

At least going HD there would be a chance that the characters look somehow real. Also the FF VIII's movements are much better. And it wouldn't have been a slap in the face of the fans.



When Final Fantasy 7 was released on Steam it used the midi music files released on the PC version.  It's been updated, but watch Square Enix do the same for the PS4 version, then watch them not patch it.  PS4 players can't mod, so  it'll be the worst version if there's no patch.

Opportunity for those who have not played the game, I played this like 15 times, so I will pass, but cool anyway.

I thought Square Enix said they had something to announced that wasnt a port or remaster?

Again they let the world down.


That's the upcoming FF XVII-4: Lightning's Revenge

I don't get why SE don't remaster the game, seriously.

Not a remake. A remaster. Replace the backgrounds with HD versions, replace the character models with more detailed ones, remaster the audio, call it a day. Would cost very little and sell a lot.

It's worse than nothing. If people are so worried about how the gameplay would be hijacked by Square look at how FFX HD turned out. Let's not pretend like they're completely incompetent.

Well FFX HD was only a remaster, not an actual remake. This is also technically a remaster as well, so it's pretty much the same situation.

I own it on PC the graphics are no remaster.... just a little less ugly but not much less ugly.

Not sure it would cost Squeenix very little. They took two years to remaster FF X, and while admittedly I'm not sure if that's because the whole thing was done by an unpaid intern on his breaks I have no difficulty believing Squeenix can bloat the project if given half the chance.
