Forums - Gaming Discussion - Final Fantasy 7 Remake timed exclusivity period announced, 1 year timed

So PS5 launch will still be in the exclusive window, wonder if it'll be a launch title. 1 Year is quite a long time.

Will most likely port to PC in 2021, but I'm not going to wait until then. Will get the PC and PS5 versions still though.

And PS5 update via backwards compatibility in November 2020.

Nah. A port with added goodies is far more likely. More $$$ to be made this way.

1 Year of exclusivity is huge. It will represent 90% of the sales on PS4 by the end of 2021 because FF games are always super frontloaded. To the very "few" people that want that game only in XB, Switch or PC in 2021...., well, good for them i guess, but let's not pretend the huge winner in all of this is not Playstation. They're not losing anything, FF franchise was exclusive no more since at least 10 years ago, so if they have this kind of advantage, is almost as it if was considered a full exclusivity. Let's not forget that the original FF VII came to PC just a year after the original PS1 version too.... so nothing really has changed since then.

Besides, it was announced from the start it was going to launch "first on PS4", so all this talking or people acting surprised is just "console wars".....

Between August 2015 and October 2019, the game total sales went up from 11 million copies to 12.3, aided by a lazy HD PS4 port. It's easy to imagine the demand for the actual remake and how this is a definitive win for SONY. 

One can pretend that 1 year of timed exclusivity isn't a big deal... only if we're talking about an Uncharted clone, not the remake of the biggest Final Fantasy game.



As expected.

A Switch port would be insane but I don't see it happening.

A full year is plenty of time.



Just don't buy any game this end Gen. Cause they will be released for next Gen systems with better looks and frame rates.

yeh, i will no longer buy in this remastered scam. end-gen titles gets re-released for next gen with better looks a year later and make people buy them again.

Unless it is about a collection remastered (2-3 games remastered and packed with the price of one).

It's weird that they put it in the box but this not shocking at all, it'll most probably come to PS5/PC/Scarlett/Xbone (not sure how possible would a Switch version be, though).
