I've wanted to play this for a long time, but from that point when I realised it was for me, it seemed to have aged quite badly. I look forward to finally getting to experience this. :)

Not here
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.

Not a chance, those days are gone. DMC, Metal Gear and other remasters of Sony old exclusive have been released on the Xbox.

This is awesome. FF7 sits with MGS as some of my favourite gaming memories. They both came out when I was still a teenager, and not yet jaded by games, and also with plenty of time on my hands to immerse myself in their worlds. These days I never finish games and I get bored by them.

I know there's no way to recapture that magic now that I'm 31 (probably 33 by the time this comes out), but at least I'll get a chance to relive some of those memories in a way.

I've never played a FF game and despite my growing state of 'meh'-ness when it comes to remaster announcements, I think I need to give this a go, feel a bit like my gaming experience is missing something going by the FF7 hypegasm.

There is a difference between remasters of last gen games like sleeping dogs and remasters of all time classics from the PS1 era.

Well in my opinion anyway.

Not true it was released on pc in 1998 same time as the ps1 version (ok 6 months later but that was due to the porting time)

It was really developed with the PlayStation in mind however. Square were very much a Nintendo partner until the big N decided to continue with cartridges that could deliver Squares vision for FF7.

OMG OMG OMG.

I saw the announcement this morning. It has put me in such a good mood (I'm 30, I should not get this excited about computer games, haha).

So far away. I pray they do this right.

I wonder how they're going to handle the localisation. There's a guy who's redone it all for the existing game correcting grammar errors and such like. Already there's a furore over whether it should be Aeris or Aerith. :D

Square Enix have an event at 11pm tonight, so I suspect things will become clearer then. I own this on the PS1, I've just never played it so hopefully this comes to the Xbox eventually.

They released an E3 teaser video a few days ago, and Frog's theme from Chrono Trigger was the background music. If they have some kind of CT remake then I'm going to lose my ****.
