    I believe that was more on hype than a tease. Hence. confirming years ago to the public "Hell no." But, seeing how they have revamped (wouldn't use remake, sorry) graphics for FFIV and FFIII for the DS. In time they can bring back the classics. And if they do, I really hope both FF8 & FF9 are part of it as well.

    The only problem is that a Final Fantasy exclusive means much less than it did going into the PS3. However, Nojima is writing this game, which is a huge difference. It's the writing of the FFXIII trilogy that prevents me from being truly interested in those games. But with the writer of FFVII and FFX writing FFXV, this gives me hope.
    What?

    Elaborate on this betrayal thing please.

    They pretty much confirmed this E3 will have announcements that are crazy but they are under NDA so they can not go into it any deeper.

    I get that, but the sentence structure made it sound like Sony was cutting deals to get exclusivity and Square would publically rebuke that.

    But then the following sentence makes it sound like its a done deal that its exclusive.

    Which makes me wonder what the betrayal part was actually referring to. Certainly can't be a betrayal of MS, since FFV13 was never announced for their system in the first place.

    I lurk Gaf a lot and see their posts. I recall seeing the word betrayalaton thrown around a few times. They are under NDA so no details. Just gotta wait.

    So what are the chances of it still being an action RPG and not turn based?

    Cos that was the only reason I was initially interested

    That's exactly my point. It's their attitude that's the problem. And you just don't show crap like that to people that have been asking for it for an eternity... and doing everything you can to make it seem like you might do so... only to not do it. They've had Final Fantasy VII spin off games, they had a big budget animated Final Fantasy VII movie... give us the damn remake already. What the hell would be the point of saying "so this is what Final Fantasy VII would like like if it were on the PS3" only to piss people off? False hope isn't good marketing... it eventually burns out your customers and makes them stop giving a crap, which is what is starting to happen now. They've gotten into the habit of making empty promises lately and it isn't helping them.

    They said, immediately after showing the tech demo, that they had no plans to develop a remake. It's easy to see why they chose Final Fantasy VII because it's the most recognizable title in the series.

    I know they did... but since then they've done a FFVII game for PSP and movie that takes place after the original story. Square-Enix also later said they wouldn't remake FFVII because it would "ruin the franchise" (referring to Final Fantasy) and they wouldn't consider remaking FFVII until they make a better Final Fantasy game (they consider FFVII their best FF game). That reasoning is utter garbage. People would still buy FF games even after a FFVII remake. People would buy the hell out of it. It's this ridiculous mindset of theirs that's causing them problems, imo. They keep telling us to trust them and the direction they're going... and I haven't all been too impressed lately.

    I wonder what FF game they're going to reveal at E3... that thing they're telling us to be excited for.

    The reason they won't do it is because they got so much unfinished shit in the pipeline they can't afford to free up enough for it.

    They can't afford to do it because they have so much unfinished shit in the pipeline. They need to narrow their focus.

    True but that's because people don't seem to realize the affects of wanting something when they obviously know they're hoping for something they wish it happens but knowing it won't happen. In a business, you have to see what consumers want but you can't always get what you want. That's the sad story, the good news is that anything will always be possible. The difference with Versus and FF7 is that one is already set in stone while the other one is still behind the curtains. That's wrong side of things, Square should have been more informal about a game that was shown almost 7 years ago. FF7 tech demo; couldn't have said better than blacksite. When the ps2 came out, they showed a tech demo of FF8, I want an FF8 game with the new modern day graphics, will it ever get the light of day? Who knows. Will Versus finally be out? We will finally see.

    Yup. Trying to pump out too much stuff has bitten them in the ass. They have so many projects they haven't finished and it's making them look bad. They need to tone it down next gen and keep the focus on a few titles at a time. Something that is easily managed.

    To expand on the universe, yes.

    Though I don't have much faith in them, their reasoning is still sound. It's better to make a new entry in the series - something the newer generation can refer to as their Final Fantasy VII. They aren't going to repeat the same success with a remake because everyone's familiar with the original and JRPGs in general. It won't have the same impact like it did back in '97.

    It's this ridiculous mindset of theirs that's causing them problems, imo. They keep telling us to trust them and the direction they're going... and I haven't all been too impressed lately.
    I agree, but I don't think a remake is the answer. They just need to cut down on the amount of projects they work on since they have a habit of announcing things early to build up hype like there's no tomorrow.

    I still dont understand how PS3 has great games but some big name developers cant learn how to properly develop for it that it takes so long to make a ambitious project that they need to move it to the next generation. Im really asking whats to blame here? Is it incompetence? Is it bad hardware? You see Naughty Dog make hit after hit in 2-3 years game development time but Square cant make a action rpg for almost the entire generation? Is Naughty Dog really that good?

    No, I just think every single person in every branch of Square-Enix has severe ADHD.

    I wouldn't use Naughty Dog as an example since their current-gen games have been linear but it does seem like Western developers are more talented and able to cope with change than Japanese developers.

    This is one of the things i have been trying to get at.
    Why have western developers been able to cope and not Japanese?
