1st Class Edition (original thread)

Was hoping for something ... better, as they've previous released Play Arts Kai figures with Cloud on his bike (although I do regret selling my Cloud on Fenrir). That and it's a soft bundle. They're packing three items together. Should have been an epic Cloud vs. Sepiroth statue, but assumption is that they'll release a CE for part 2, part 3, and then a trilogy CE in which the badass stuff will be released. Sons a doges, they're gonna milk the holy hell out of this one and I'll be one of those idiots that will buy every version of each release.

Still, it's pretty awesome and pre-bought two!

im expecting only chapter 1 gets a physical release that will serve as your physical piece and the subsequent chapters will all be DLC, thus making you buy each piece as you'll need save data from the previous to play it. this makes it where you cant just buy latter parts and they can sell all of them to each player. not sure why anyone would buy just the latter pieces but im sure they want to avoid that.

Tis a good theory, but ... I doubt it. There's far too much money to be made here.

Maybe..but more money to be made selling collectors edition to a few or every chapter to everyone who plays. I guess we'll see...but I can't see them wanting people to be able to skip the early chapters.

I'm so not ok with this, so you're telling me that it's presumed and almost a given at this point, that I have to buy part of a 22 year old game for more than it originally sold for in 1997, then possibly turn around and pay more for each installment to finish said 22 year old game?

I remember when the gaming community as a whole were eating companies like Capcom and EA alive for releasing unfinished games that were later finished through paid DLC, but for some reason it ok for this jyst because its THE FFVII? AND you have some paying 300+ for just one part,.....

Yeh I have purchased episodic games before, but they were never full gamed+ priced per episode.. and they aren't games that were 22 years old that I finished already.. I mean they story stays the same.. the same people die, the same people live, the same people win, the same people lose. Sure they possible added in aspects of advent children and possibly crisis core, expanded some stories, but it all turns out the same ..Sure it looks AWESOME, but FFVII was the turn based 3d rpg that changed how we looked at rpgs, now they turned it into a good looking modern looking game with ffxv -ish combat system.. it has become just another fan service final fantasy game that is nothing revolutionary, just make all the cloud and seph crap stick around all that much longer.

Pardon my rant, just don't see how anyone can go from hating releasing unfinished games and paying to get the finished, to OMG its ff7, heres 1600(quite literally if JD's prediction comes true) gimme that game I beat 22 years ago, I have to see if Cloud can survive............ Just my Opinion

They don't even know how many parts this game is going to be yet from what the guys at Square said today, it could be 4, could be 10. Thats absolute insanity. In a time when we're getting full remakes of classic games for usually around $40 new, this game has the balls the come out of the gates with a full $60 price tag for only one part of the game because......FF7. Nope, Won't ever support that pricing model because I don't want other companies getting any bright ideas. Just imagine if Nintendo came out with a remake of OoT and charged you $60 for the Deku tree portion of the game.

And the reason why this is 2 BDRs is probably because there are more cinematics than gameplay.

its not just the old game though, they are adding dozens.. like many dozens of hours of new content apparently... midgar was 5 hours in the original game... and now its 2 blu rays? they have taken 5 hours and made it the size of RD2? thats a crap load of content, fully voicing and adding some quests will add lots of hours by default but it really seems like this is much more than just a prettied up version of the game. i just hope they dont reimagine it to the point they remove all the charm trying to serious up everything. some of those bits were meant to be funny like the honey bee inn/don corneo and the slap fight on the cannon etc.

Did they really say that the first release were 2 Blu Ray discs? From what I gathered he said the entire full game would be 2. I could be wrong though.

Probably chalk full of CGI's which eat up a ton of extra space. Its primarily why a lot of those older RPGs were multi-disc and why Square went with CD format over Nintendo and their cartridge system. I think they said that FF7 would have needed like 8 N64 carts because of the cut scenes.

Edit: People be spreading misinformation then because I've ben seeing a bunch of people saying that episode 1 is 2 BRDs.
Archer

The exact words:

"Remaking FFVII has allowed us to dive much deeper into its world and its characters than ever before. The game design is optimized for this as well, and we anticipate two full blu ray disks worth of content for this as well. The first game (he says game, not episode) in this project (as in the two full bd's worth of content) expands on the story of midgar, and has become such an elaborate [thing], that it has become a stand alone game (again not episode) in its own right.".

He never says this one is 2 discs at any point. Just that the project is expected to be two full bd disc. That could mean that the midgar section, since its its own game now, will be 2 discs once all the episodes is out, maybe. Or that the entire thing when done will be.

Hearing and reading it again, makes me think that they broke each original disc up into its own game. And that each of those will be episodic. This sounds worse than ever before.

It doesn't really sound like they know WTF they're doing. They were also saying that they don't anticipate the next entry in this FF7 thing to be made any faster than the first one was, so if this is 4 part thing it may take them 12 years to finish.

God help us if this is the case. Square really needs to do a better job of communicating things, but maybe they can't communicate things well because even they don't know how things will shake out. Imagine $60 a piece of 5-10 separate releases. My hype for the game has definitely gotten the best of me because with this level of uncertainty, I really shouldn't be preordering the game.

Archer

Yeah they really need to be precise and communicate this better. And its clear they don't know what they are doing.

After that in an interview someone else working on he game said the thing releasing in March is 40 hours long. What? That doesn't sound like an "episode", that sounds like a full blown fudging game. What are they doing? Then someone else says it could be 4 to 10 parts? What? What is going on over there? Did they mean they turned this into FF13 when they said episodic? And its going to be 4-10 different full games based loosely on the original? Or what the fudge? Because this doesn't sound episodic? And how the fudge did you turn Midgar into 40 hours? What are you guys even doing? Does this have 30 hours of cgi cut-scenes now? The only thing we've seen about this are things that happen in the first 2-3 hours of the original game. How did they turn 5-7 hours into 40 hours? That is whole thing is infuriating to me.

This is only FF7 in name only at this point. It has the same locations and characters but its not even the same thing as the material that its based on. Why couldn't they have just given us a remade from the ground up FF7 game and not fumble the entire thing like they have done this far?

Also to clarify, a BD is only 50GB. Most modern games would take 2 bd with all their day one patches. Most games are 80GB. Which probably explains why so many games have 30gb+ day one patches now. They don't want to make have the cost of two disc per physical release.

So thinking about that, this thing probably is 2 bd worth of content for midgar. Which means it is a full blown 40 hour game. But then wtf is even going on then. And why can't they just say what the fudge is going on.

Yeah, both Gears 4 and Quantum Break are well over 100gb, Forza 7 is 90-something, and Halo 5 is 99gb after 4k patches. I wonder if they just threw all "4K" textures for the pro version onto the disc and said: "look guys, 2 BRD....wooooooow, or game is going to be so big".

The actual worst thing about this whole situation is that Nomura is directing the game. It doesn't feel good to say this, but the dude is honestly pretty bad at his job. And the fact that he has such a crapty support system at Square makes it so much worse. I really hope guys like Kitase are VERY hands-on with the project because we could legit be here in 10 years still waiting for part 2 or episode 2 or whatever the hell they are calling it.

It's all so worrying, but I really, really like what they've shown of the game so I'm trying to stay optimistic. I don't remember the last time footage from a game gave me chills the way that E3 presentation did. But all the question marks makes it impossible not to worry.

I wish kitase was directing it himself..but hopefully he's keep nomura on a short leash. He's a great artist. He's designed some of my favorite characters ever. But he isn't a director or project lead. If they can put a good team around him that can work in spite of him we may be ok


Kitase said he doesn't believe development of future chapters will be dramatically shorter..but squeenix did release a statement in response saying it should be more efficient now that characters and other things are done..but environments will take time...so it seems like we shouldn't be expecting them tooooo close together.

I never liked this idea from the moment I first heard about it. FF7 was perfect the way it was, and playing an altered version of it with new "paint" on it doesn't appeal to me. I watched the E3 presentation of it, and couldn't understand all the cheering for it, but then when it showed anyone in the the audience, they were 25 and under, so that explained it. They weren't there in '97, playing long long hours on their Playstation because they were awed and blown away by what Final Fantasy 7 was. They'll be happy playing Final Fantasy in Kingdom Hearts style, which is what it reminded me of.

its true they will never understand. anyone from past that era looks at it and sees a very dated game, from the gameplay to the graphics etc.. my kids were born in 06/07, they dont fully understand why i get the way i do when i play it, or why i cry EVERY time at the end of advent children. if you werent there you cant understand what ff7 was and how revolutionary it was and how in awe we were.

that said, the idea of playing a game that real looking in that setting, was something we could have only imagined, it looks better than the pre-rendered scenes in the original, we used to think what if the whole game looked like that, and now it does and more. there is a lot of nostalgia there for those characters and the original game but im definitely all in on playing it.

No one knows, because SE is being tight lipped about the pricing system, whether each release will be full price and even atm they don't know how many releases it will be, but it's looking more and more to be a FF xiii situation so looking at 100s I see at least 4 installments at 50 each in the cheapest so probably 200+

ok with alot of that but not so pleased about some. id have preferred they left the honey bee inn/don corneo alone, its supposed to be bad. sad they had to tone it down.

knew tifa would be redesigned somewhat, the comically large chest area wouldnt have worked so well with this realism, but she looks great.

as far as adding the shadows following the team and other things we knew there would be additions, but as long as they arent messing with the core story im fine with some adds and fleshing things out, hopefully dialogue choices will matter in small ways as not to upset the story, like the choices in the first that decide who you spend time with at the gold saucer.

My only gripe is going to be finishing the first installment, and then waiting. Although they've said they should be able to release subsequent releases quicker.

Still, I foresee binging the hell out of this and then being pissed at having to wait. Regardless, I'm beyond stoked and excited. I'm assuming many people will be blowing some PTO when this comes out!

Really wish the FFVIII "remake" was a bit more, but still pumped for that as well. In looking back, I don't think I ever actually finished VIII. Quite certain I got to the end and stopped. Very much so looking forward to going back through it.

redoing ff1 would be interesting.. it would very different since the characters didnt have identities and such other than the warrior of light they've created for dissidia etc.

there really is, there is so much more going on with this game and my feeds are blown up with articles about the "ethics" department at square and about this in general, youtube, google, its everywhere.

shes my all time fav, and i love the design, she looks just like i always imagined she would if she was actually real, going with such a realistic style for this one her design makes perfect sense. when she dons her wall market/honey bee inn outfit or something else its quite possible they will look considerably bigger when she isnt wearing a more sporty top

I'm a huge FF fan but I can't stand this. The game looks great and all, but I'd rather them push forward with a new installment. Or even try to make a sequel. Anything but remakes/remasters at this point.

Anyone interested in the FF7 vinyl should order it from amazon.ca. It's $80 on the .com site and only $40 on the .ca site. I have no idea why there's a price disparity.

No free shipping, but even after shipping, the total was under $40 USD. It's actually out of stock now so guess everyone preordered from the .ca site instead.

Yeah that's been square enix for about the past 20 years, and Square edios is the one that somehow churns out bombs on millions of copies sold.

Couldn't have said it better. This new gamer mentality that $60 should include everything involving the game ever is ridiculous. I get being annoyed at microtransactions, but these companies are supposed to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on games when the price of the game itself hasn't went up - why? They're changed the entire game, new engine, new voicework, etc. They're supposed to just give it away? Don't buy it and move on if that's you're a spoiled brat about it.

it was said that having part 1 done will speed up certain parts of the development of the second part, but id still expect part 2 to be a ways out. it will be a few years before all the parts are out, even if its only 2 or 3 parts it could be 2024 or 5 easily if it takes a couple years to make each part. they havent even started the post midgar section of the game apparently and that is most of the game, midgar was like 5 hours in the original and now its a whole game.

dam, guess I'll just replay the original and then take a long break till they finish the whole game.

What a horrible way to release a game people have been wanting for so long, they buy the game get really into it and then they leave you hanging and you have to wait months or a year for part 2 and then repeat for the rest.. This just looks like a real greedy way to get people to pay 4+ times more for one game.it just looks like a really bad way to treat fans/customers. i just hope other companies don't start doing this, Because you know there are always people that will buy something no matter the cost. this game will make a ton of money and other big greedy companies like Activision might think hey we should release our next big games like this! with micro transactions+loot boxes! lol

doubt it. i might just buy it for the switch, i remember playing it on my psp and thought the game looked better on a small screen or i might try it on an emulator make it 4k and adjust some settings.

I don't really understand this. It's not 'one game' if it takes like 6 years to make, is massive and gives you 40 hours game play per purchase - it's 50-100 gigs. They're breaking it into parts because the individual parts are like a full game in itself and fully fleshed out. You're acting like the game is going to be 5 hours of lazy remake. It's not.

Agreed. All this doging over 3 parts feels just like the cry babies of Starcraft 2 who later realized that it worked and was the right move.

Sure it'd be great to get it all at once but clearly this is a massive undertaking. I'd rather see incrimental releases vs wait X more years.

Whats hard to understand? i don't like the idea of buying a game in parts and waiting years to finish it. it is one game, it has one story or am i missing something? is each part going to have a different story and different people? i rather they just release the full game and they make money of pre-orders, sales and dlc or whatever. i have no problem spending more for a game i like,But the way they are handling the release of this game is straight up greedy bullcrap lol

I think if Square had done this with a new game it wouldn't be a big deal (see FFXIII), but taking a game that was sold by itself 20 years ago then breaking it up into 3,4,5...however many parts it ends up being, and reselling it in parts is a bit shady. Problem is that square effed this whole thing up themselves. They announced it WAY too early then outsourced it then scrapped it all to start from scratch inhouse. If they had done this correctly from the beginning they could probably had the whole thing done shortly after its current release date

This terrifies me because I just don't trust modern Square Enix storytelling especially when Nomura is involved. I could see a scenario where it takes them 10 years to tell the whole story. That said, everything I've seen so far has been very encouraging. The game looks phenomenal so it gives me a bit of hope that this might actually come together.

Ya Nomura is a great designer but he is a dumpster fire as a director or anything beyond that. im hoping Kitase will keep him reigned in. the story is already written so they will just be expanding upon certain parts and things, so hopefully they wont get too off the rails in that regard. I can also see this being a ten year undertaking, if its 3 or 4 parts and each part takes 2 or however many years to make this could take awhile. after this first one is done lots of the assets will be done so that will help, but this is probably jumping to ps5 at some point but if its backward compatible that shouldnt slow them down too much. they've said it will save some time that many assets will be done but that wont speed things up toooo much, kitase has inferred there could be significant time between to make sure they're right. square wouldnt do this project for years and they always said we cant do it because the tech doesnt exist for this to be the greatest project we've ever done because if its not people will see it as a failure.
