Final Fantasy VII Announcement Disappoints At PlayStation Experience

Final Fantasy VII News
PlayStation Experience treated Sony fans to a vast array of tasty treats but there was one moment that had me on the edge of my seat in anticipation, Square Enix taking to the stage with a sprawling pair of screens donning the Final Fantasy VII logo in the background. Would they be announcing a sequel? A prequel? Or maybe a complete remake?

Unfortunately, no. For all intents and purposes, they’re releasing the PC version of Final Fantasy VII on the PlayStation 4 in Spring of 2015. The announcement was accompanied by a video showing the original Final Fantasy VII in all its glory and honestly, the cut-scenes still look great by today’s standards. That is until you notice the iconic square-type design of the characters.

So while we still await a true HD remake, or anything that will whet the appetite of fans that have been screaming for something Final Fantasy VII related for over a decade, we’ve got another re-release that offers little more than an introduction to the game for a younger generation.

Now operating under the guise of Editor-in-Chief (purely because we felt the position was needed for public relations purposes), he's tasked with a lot of the kind of jobs that would put you to sleep at your desk. When he's not catching some Zs, you'll likely find him arguing points he knows nothing about, playing the latest rogue-like he'll never complete, or breaking something on the website that never needed fixing.
